Planning a fall family session? Here are some tips! I want to help give you a jump start for planning and shopping for your own family.
1.Start with 3 main colors
Start out by picking 3 colors that you really like and that complement each other well. Using more than 3 colors can be a little much. Below is a color palette for fall to help give you some ideas.
2. Add a pop a color
A pop of color makes your picture stand out and it adds a great focal point. Any bright color that is fall related works well! i.e purple, gold, red, etc. If you love lots of bright colors consider bringing it in as an accessory. It won't make your photo too busy and it will add interest!
3. Don't be afraid to add pattern
Don't be afraid to add pattern but do keep it limited. Patterns add interest and depth. As long as it's kept to a select few it will work. Bonus if that pattern ties in all of the colors.
4. Accessorize& Layer
Accessories and layers really bring the picture to the next level without adding tons of crazy colors and prints. Plus, they look great for fall. Examples: hats, scarves, vests, belts, etc
Above is a sample family wardrobe. This combinations work because it has 3 main colors(mustard yellow, gray, and black), one of those colors "pop" (mustard yellow), it has a pattern that ties in all the colors(the girl's dress and boy's button down), and there are accessories and layers(scarf, tights, and the boys sweater over the button down)
3 main colors: black, blue, and khaki
Pop of color: red
Accessories&layers: vest, belt, and bow
3 main colors: orange, purple, and black
Pop of color: orange
Patterns: plaid and scarf design
Accessories&layers: belt, scarf, tights, and cardigan
Those are only 3 ideas but really the options are endless! Mix and match and have fun with it. Remember that this is YOUR family photo so you want it to reflect YOU!
