Fall photos are popular and fun for family photos because of the gorgeous foliage. There are so many colors to work with! Since there’s a lot of competition for the eyes, as a photographer I have to be careful the colors don’t take attention away from my focus- the family.
I loved this shoot of a returning family who chose a late fall shoot. They chose black and denim for a casual look, and pulled in color from their accessories. And this time dad brought in the main color, with a confident and vibrant pumpkin-colored orange to complete their family wardrobe.
Even Mona the dog had a cute orange scarf!
Black works here really well because dark colors works for winter/cold/late fall. They look cozy! Being that their shoot last year with me was in the summer, this adds variety to their collection of yearly family photos.
Try doing a shoot in different seasons every year!
