It’s October which means it’s officially pumpkin patch season! Going to a pumpkin patch is one of my favorite fall activities to do in the Pacific Northwest. I swear almost everyone I know stops by a pumpkin patch at least once during October.
My friend Maddy and I stopped by Craven Farms a few weekends ago and we had so much fun! As we were walking through the pumpkin patch trying to figure out how to pose, it dawned on me that I should probably write a blog post on how to pose at the pumpkin patch. We can’t be the only bloggers/girls out there trying to figure out how to pose at a pumpkin patch right?
As a blogger, I’m always looking for new ways to pose with flowers, foods, and even pumpkins. If you’re heading to a pumpkin patch this season and want a few posing ideas, this blog post is for you!
How to Pose at a Pumpkin Patch: 8 posing ideas you can try:
1. Sit on the pumpkins
Sitting on the pumpkins is one of the easiest poses you can do. You can sit down by yourself or sit with a friend. It can get pretty rainy in the Northwest so I recommend making sure the pumpkins are dry or at least wipe them dry before you sit.
2. Hold the mini pumpkins to cover one eye
Okay I know this pose sounds absolutely ridiculous. But this is one of my go to poses when I pose with food and dessert. I have no idea why this works but this pose always turns out cute!
3. Hold the pumpkins up with you friend
You’re probably at the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin. So when you do find your pumpkin, hold your pumpkin up for a photo.
4. Put a mini pumpkin on your head
If you prefer picking up and posing with the mini pumpkins, you should try this pose. I felt super silly trying it out last year but the photos turned out really cute!
5. Walk through the pumpkin patch
When it doubt, walk it out. Walking through the field of pumpkins will also feel natural. Just make sure you watch your step because there are vines and pumpkins everywhere!
6. Grab an apple cider
If you aren’t sure what to do with your hands in photos, I recommend grabbing a prop like an apple cider. Personally, Maddy and I were just cold and wanted a warm drink. The pumpkin patches around the Seattle area usually have drinks and light snacks you can pick up during your visit.
7. Hold hands at the entrance
If you visit Craven Farms, you’ll find the most adorable entrance. Maddy and I pulled a pose from my “how to pose with friends” blog post: to hold hands! If you’re looking for an easy pose at a pumpkin patch for you and your friend, you should definitely try this pose.
8. Put one boot up on a pumpkin
If you’re looking to mix up your standing and sitting shots, I recommend bringing one boot up on a pumpkin. This pose will allow you to play around with leaning forward, backward, and towards the camera.
There you have it friends – 8 poses to try at the pumpkin patch!
