As the leaves start to change color and the air gets a little crispier, it’s time to start thinking about family photography! Fall is the perfect time to book a session and capture your family in all their autumn glory. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your fall family photography session.
One of the best things about family photography is that it can be done anywhere! Whether you want to go for a nature hike, have a picnic in the park, or just use your backyard, there are endless possibilities when it comes to choosing a location. Just make sure to pick somewhere that everyone is comfortable with and that has plenty of room to move around. Clueless on where to go? We have an 18-page Location Guide to help you pick the perfect place!
Literally! When it comes to taking photos, timing is everything. The light during golden hour (the hour before sunset) is absolutely beautiful and perfect for taking outdoor photos. But if you’re not a morning person, don’t worry – there are plenty of ways to work around that. Just make sure to consult with your photographer ahead of time so they can help you plan for the best possible light.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but what you wear can really make or break a photo. Stay away from clothes with busy patterns or logos, and try to stick to classic colors like white, black, navy, etc. That being said, don’t be afraid to add in a pop of color here and there! A little bit of variety can really bring your photos to life. And last but not least, make sure everyone is comfortable in their clothes. If someone’s not happy with what they’re wearing, it will show in the photos.
This is probably the most important tip of all. Relax and enjoy yourselves! The more fun you’re having, the better your photos will be. Let your personalities shine through and let your photographer do their thing – they’ll capture those special moments better than anyone else could ever hope to do.
So there you have it – tips to help you prepare for your fall family photography session! Just remember to relax, have fun, and let your personality shine through and you’ll be sure to get some stunning photos that you’ll cherish for years to come.
