Fall Portraits: What to Wear?

It’s the one question I get asked most often when people are getting ready for a portrait session:  what should we wear?

As the fall season approaches, outdoor photos are extremely popular.  So as you prepare for your engagement or family photo session, here are a few suggestions on what to look for in a coordinating wardrobe.

– No big logos of any kind.  Stick to timeless prints and colours and avoid distracting patterns.

– Say no to “matchy-matchy”!  The days of everyone wearing white shirts and khakis are gone.  Look for complimentary colours that play off each other.

– For family sessions, remember to be comfortable!  We’ll be playing around with the kids, so wearing your Sunday-Best isn’t always practical.  When kids are comfortable in their clothes, they’re happier and easier to photograph!

– For engagement sessions, I like to suggest choosing two outfits:  one casual, and one a little dressier.  We can shoot both styles during your session to give a little more variety.

Here are some outfit combinations I pulled together for the whole family.  These warmer, simple earth tones look great in the fall!  Don’t forget the accessories like scarves, necklaces, hats and belts!
