Beautiful yellows, oranges and reds adorn the trees and there’s a familiar crisp in the air. Autumn is here, but it’s fleeting. Leaves fall as quickly as they change color and snow soon follows. The chilly air reminds us that winter is right around the corner. But first, we must cherish the beauty of October.

Last year, Grand Marais photographer Lesli Higgins and her three kids decided to do a Halloween photo shoot. With full makeup, hair and costumes, her son General posed as The Huntsman [left] and Michael Jackson from Thriller. Scarlet dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White [far left]. Her other daughter Alivia posed as Cinderella and Juliet. When I asked why, Lesli replied, “I just wanted to do something fun with my kids. Normally they won’t even look at me when I have a camera in my hand.”
