Clothing Guide for your Fall Family Photos


Fall is such a beautiful season and I wanted to share a few clothing guide tips for your next family portrait session.

1.  I recommend selecting outfits that compliment the wide range of colors that the fall  has to offer. Make sure not to select an outfit whose colors will blend in with the background. For example, black clothing may blend in with the background, while white clothing may be too bright. Choose flattering colors that don’t have busy patterns and blend well with the surroundings. I usually begin with Mom’s outfit and then plan the rest of the family’s outfits using the same palette of colors.

In the photos below, the Mom chose maroon, grey and blue colors. They  beautifully complement her eyes as well as complimenting what the rest of her family is wearing. Her husband and kids chose grey and blue colors so that all the outfits are coordinated. If you’ve noticed, the boys are wearing similar colors, but not exactly the same outfits so that it is not matchy-matchy.

2.  Start with the end goal in mind. Where do you plan to display the photos from your session? It is best to coordinate your outfits with the decor of your home so that the final wall art will look cohesive and coordinated. I have attached portraits below from a fall session, as well as the wall art which is beautifully displayed at the family’s living room.

3.  Last but not least, have a great time and enjoy your session! It is all about creating memories and cherishing the present moments. In the end, your photos will reflect the love and connection you share as a family. Tis Session has taken place at Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit NJ but you might want to check out about  how to find the best spot  for your fall photos. It might be a lot closer than you think 🙂

I hope you find those tips useful in planning your session this coming season.
