Summer has ended, you know what that means. Time to break out your favorite sweater and boots and hit up Starbucks for some Pumpkin Spice Lattes! (Atleast that’s what I’m doing, I love me some Pumpkin Spice). It is ALSO the best time to update your photos and…you might be wondering, “What do we wear for a fall photoshoot?” Welp, Luay Photography is here to help.
What To Wear For Fall Photo Shoot
Keep it Simple
When thinking about a color scheme you want for your session, start with a simple, muted color Palette. Blues, Tans and Grey’s look great anytime of the year, but in the Fall, the muted and pastel colors looks incredible against a fiery yellow and Red Fall background! You can also add just a few pops of bright color that coordinates with the rest of the outfits whether they be Orange, Yellow, or even Red. YOU DON’T HAVE TO MATCH EXACTLY! Secret Tip: It’s easier to start with a girls outfit, then build a wardrobe around that style and color 😉
Accessorize! But not too too much
Adding Details: scarves, hats, jewelry, even the shoes, help tie the look together. But don’t go overboard! Too much can be distracting from the overall look that you are going for, so a few here and there can go a long way to having your look come together. Secret Tip: Sometimes less is more.
Add Layer and Texture
Adding layers doesn’t just mean putting on a boring old sweater. It’s about adding visual interests like scarves, boots, vests, gloves. You can also mix and match with texture like ribbons and ruffles, crochet, tweed and corduroy, etc. All these elements lend to a perfect fall look. Secret Tip: Brown boots and shoes looks great on any outfit!
Props that add Dynamic
Props can add a whole dynamic element to a very memorable photograph. Pumpkins, a basket of Sunflowers, or even your child’s favorite stuffed animal are a few examples but be creative! As long as it makes sense for the over all look and feel you are looking for. Secret Tip: Bring something meaningful to you. Maybe it’s your mother’s quilted blanket or even knit sweaters. Something that will add to your overall experience.
Last but not least, but certainly the most important: wear what feels good to you. The way that clothing makes you feel comes through the photographs, so take some time to choose outfits that you feel the MOST comfortable in. Fitted, but not too snug that shows bulges you’d rather keep hidden! Your family should also feel comfortable and love the outfits also! Secret Tip: Please. Please. PLEASE no prints T Shirts with Logos. Sorry, it’s distracting so leave that at home.
