What to Wear to your Fall Family Photo Shoot

Choosing what to wear for family photos can be a challenge. Selecting a color palette that works for everyone and looks good takes some thought and effort!Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 2.40.17 PMYour outfits can really make the shoot.  Choose a style you like and a few colors you like as well.  Parents should dress fashionable, yet simple. Focus more of the funky, unique style on the kids.  You may think certain colors don’t go together, but think out of the box!  I recommend investing in your child’s clothing for this session since it does make a huge difference in the final product.

Here are a few coordinating choices that will look fabulous with fall colors! Pumpkin patches and spiced lattes, you can never go wrong with warm tones for your Autumn shoot.Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 2.42.15 PMDark jeans that have grit to them is always a great choice for the parents, especially the husband. Pair them with neutrals for a classic year-round look.Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 2.41.55 PM Continue to think about texture and color.  A neutral palette has a classy, timeless appeal that is especially popular around the Holidays.Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 2.42.07 PMIf you are going to wear a print, stay away from small prints, there is not a lot of visual interest (think bold!).  Plaid is no longer lumberjack, it’s edgy and modern!
