An Instagram profile would be incomplete without some stunning shots of the New England fall leaves. The beautiful red and golden tones of the trees are sure to stand out. Why not get a photo of yourself posing with the trees in the background? Or kick the fallen leaves for an action shot! You could even try to capture them as they fall. For the best spots for leaf-peeping in New England, check out our guide to the area’s best fall foliage.

Fall time’s favorite plant: the pumpkin. As soon as the leaves start to fall pumpkin appears everywhere, from our pies, porches and even lattes. Get that all-important photo in a pumpkin patch. Its bright orange color is very autumnal, so it will look great on your feed next to the foliage. Be sure to pick up a pumpkin to make some delicious Halloween or Thanksgiving treats, which will also look great on the ‘gram! If you want to get creative, try carving a pumpkin too, for that classic Halloween shot.

When it gets to October, you know your feed will be flooded with ghouls. Or, your friends and family’s Halloween costumes. It’s the time of year where everyone dresses up, goes trick or treating, attends parades and parties and embraces all things dark and macabre. Document your scariest or silliest looks with fun selfies and Halloween backdrops. Fortunately, New England is home to the spookiest town in the US: Salem. Spending Halloween in Salem is the ultimate fall bucket list activity.

You’ve cooked the dinner, set the table, gathered your family... There’s just one thing left to do. Get a photo, of course! Pose your family and friends, set a timer and make sure to get one of you all. It will be a great Thanksgiving memory to look back on. Then, get a photo of the delicious food all plated up. (If you can bear to wait before tucking in!) And finally, you just have to get a shot of that classic pumpkin pie.

This fall, learn all about Thanksgiving’s origins at the Plimoth Plantation. Discover how the pilgrims lived at an authentic 17th-century settlement as actors help transport you back in time. This historic site and its beautiful land make for a great photo opportunity, and fit the fall theme perfectly!
