What to Wear for Fall Family Pictures > Monticello, Somerset KY Photographer
Fall is definitely the Season for Family Portraits. The colors and lighting are amazing and the temperatures are just about right for gathering everyone up to get some precious portraits to update your walls. Below you will find some tips for blending your outfits as well as a few photos for inspiration.
1. Creamy Neutrals with a Pop of Color
Keep it simple with neutral cream tones for the parents and let the kids shine in colorful outfits in muted hues. This look is soft, romantic and effortless. Dressing only the kids in color makes them look vibrant fun and young – just the way they really are.
2. Black with Bold Colors
Black attire for parents is classic and modern. Pair it with bold colors for the kids to lighten the mood and to keep your look youthful.
Find ways to add flair to the parents look in the details like earrings for mom or color in the collar/cuffs for dad. But be mindful of coordinating with the colors in the kids’ outfits.
3. Complementary Colors
To wear a trio of colorful outfits that harmonize successfully, the colors should be carefully balanced – let one color dominate and use the two others for accent.
This look is fun, vibrant and exciting. It’s a great way for the entire family to let their personalities shine.
4. Pick a Color Theme
Pick a color and weave it through all of the outfits for an appealing look. In this example I chose forest green – a great fall color. Use a small pop of color to bring the look to life. Other great staple colors for fall are grey, blue or magentas.
5. Simple. Simple. Simple.
If styling isn’t your thing, keep it simple. Like really simple. Don’t over think it. Dress everyone in simple cream, white and neutral tones and your family will sparkle!
