Fall might just be our favorite time of the year - cooler temps, layered outfits, trendy boots and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING make our hearts happy. Around here, we know that Fall is coming when our calendars start to get VERY full (everyone wants to get those perfect family photos in time for the holidays!) We often get asked for advice on pulling together outfits for family sessions, and we love seeing what our gorgeous families come up with. To help remove the stress of pulling together the perfect Pinterest-worthy outfits our resident stylist Lindsay compiled this list of tips and ideas. We are happy to help style our clients, let us know if you need additional advice along the way!
GIVE YOURSELF TIME
It's never too early to start thinking about the look you want for your family photos. You can start by "shopping" your closets to see what might work and then building outfits from there. Check back-to-school sales for great deals, and invest in pieces that could be used again and again.
PICK A COLOR SCHEME
The best place to start when planning outfits is by narrowing down 2-3 colors that you love. Consider what colors you may already have, or what looks good on you, or what would look best in a photo hanging in your house. These are some of our favorite color combos for this fall:
DON'T BE AFRAID TO MIX PATTERNS AND TEXTURES
Mixing it up can lend a lot of visual interest to your photos, and allow each person in your family to stand out as an individual.
The details can really show off your family's personality. Let your girly-girl wear a fun new necklace, or try out a cute hat on your little guy.
Happy shopping, we can't wait to see you this Fall!!
