TIPS FOR YOUR MINI FALL PHOTOSHOOT
Fall is the perfect time to schedule your next photography session for so many reasons. The cooler weather means that you won’t be sweating before we even take the first photo. Additionally, we get to play with changing colors in nature, a different color palette in your outfits, and some cozier poses.
If you are looking to get the most out of your mini fall photoshoot, read the tips below!
WHAT TO WEAR
Plan outfits ahead of time so that you don’t need to scramble the hour before the photo session. This means that you can make sure your clothes are clean, ironed, and laid out the night before. If you have kids, make sure to bring a back-up outfit (you never know when someone will spill juice on a t-shirt).
Aim to coordinate but avoid matching too closely. Your entire family does not need to show up in the exact same outfit, but you can choose cozy sweaters and fall dresses that complement each other. Jewel tones and deep reds work well with the yellows and burnt oranges of fall.
PLAN YOUR LOCATION
I have a long list of beautiful fall locations that can cater to what you want to accomplish from your session, from local fields to the best spots on the beach. If you are hoping to embrace the fall leaves and colors, there are many options for that as well.
Look at images from my portfolio and other online inspiration to find images that you love. My favorite spot in the fall is Baker Park or one of the many beautiful farmers fields with the mountain landscape.
Some other location ideas:
Hayride or corn maze
Lake or pond
Farm or barn
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NATURAL PROPS
From leaves to pumpkins, you have the option to lean as far into the fall theme as you desire. Have your kids gather leaves and throw them in the air, make a pile and jump in, or have your photographer take lifestyle photos of your crew picking out the perfect pumpkin.
FAVORITE FALL POSES
While the beautiful fall scenery will help with so many of the poses, one of the best things about the autumn pictures is that you get the chance to cozy up. Play around with sitting and standing poses, keeping your partner or your kids close!
