I love using my letterboard.  Letterboards let you add fun sayings to your picture in a cute and easy to read way.  With fall coming around, I wanted to use my letterboard in the most creative way possible.  I complied a list of fall sayings to use on a letterboard.

A lot of these work well with certain settings or backgrounds.  I am hoping with 85 different ones to choose from, one will work with the photo setup you have in mind for your project!  Or, while reading through the options, you will be inspired for your next shoot. 

For each of these sayings, consider putting the year at the bottom of your letterboard.  That way you will know how old everyone was in the picture.  It is amazing how after so many years, it becomes hard to remember details like that. 

Since fall has so many activities, I divided up the sayings into different groups.  And even though there are 50 different fall sayings for a letterboard here, there are so many more out there!  Use your imagination to create your own saying for your own photo shoot.  If you would like some other ideas on what to use in your fall photos, please visit my post for Fall-Themed Photo Props.

Bellow are some fall sayings for a letterboard, divided up into sub categories.

Wrap Up

Even if you have never used a letterboard in your pictures before, consider doing something different and trying it out this year.  It can be fun to come up with your own saying, that way you can make your pictures especially unique to you. 

If you are still running short of ideas, hold a contest between family members.  Have everyone create their own letterboard saying.  You can choose a winner, and use it for the photos.  Or, everyone can create their own saying to be used in their own picture.  It may be a way to get your family more excited about taking pictures this year!
