Autumn Family Photography | Oshawa Photography

Autumn family photography is my favorite time of the year.  Families love these Oshawa photography sessions for many reasons.

1. The weather has cooled down making Oshawa photography sessions more comfortable

2.The colours are beautiful and provide a beautiful backdrop of portraits

3. Fall wardrobe is more relaxedand makes getting portraits done more comfortable

There are many locations that are used for autumn family photography sessions.  This year (2021) we will be using Enniskillen Conservation Area for Autumn family photography.  This is a location we have used for many Oshawa photography sessions throughout the year.  Pumpkin farms tend to be very crowded and over run and as such I chose to utilize this park for 2021. The larger the crowds the harder it is to take photographs.    I also decided to utilize less crowded places due to the risk of COVID 19 with lack of social distancing.  Photography Health and Safety are of utmost importance to me and would never place my clients in any situation that is hazardous or dangerous to Oshawa photography safety.  This location has a number of options available therefore a number of options depending on the look that is trying to be achieved.

Oshawa Photography | A Little about the Park

Enniskillen Conservation Area is a little conservation area that is a hidden gem for Oshawa Photography and perfect for autumn family photography. It has beautiful walking trails, and gives families a chance to get out of the city and breath some fresh air.

This park has 65 hectares of cedar swamps, wetlands and bubbling brooks. This Conservation area is located on the south slopes of the provincially significant Oak Ridges Moraine. It is located only a stone’s-throw away from the small village of Enniskillen and offers 5.5 km of trails through a beautiful mixed deciduous forest that includes the Bowmanville Creek and two ponds.

The area is known for its local history including the Moorey Grist Mill (built just north of the Education Centre in 1874 and dismantled in 1956) that used to take advantage of the constant supply of water that still runs through the park today. Although the mill no longer exists, you can still see the earthen dam, which held back the creek water to produce the millpond.

The park activities include hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter, fishing, geocaching, nature studies, and wildlife viewing.

The park ammentites include park and pay parking lots.  The price is $6/day/vehicle.  UInfortunately the washrooms are currently closed due to the ongoing COVID 19 crisis.  Pets are also permitted but must be on leash.  The property also has picnic shelter rentals as well.
