The colours you wear on your Family Photoshoot during Autumn can make such a difference to your pictures – here are some tips for embracing the gorgeous countryside that we are lucky enough to have around us in Sussex.
As always, I’ll advise you to dress for the weather – we’re not going to get great pictures if your children are cold and miserable and are complaining of soggy feet. ‘Earthy’ colours work really well – greens, blues (including denim), burgandy and browns. A ‘pop’ of mustard yellow, orange or even a little red could make a really big difference to your final pictures. When planning the shoot below I suggested the young girl wear a yellow cardigan – you can see how the colour really brings out the background of the image and creates a lot more impact. I’ve pulled out all of the colours from the image and made a colour inspiration pallet for you too – see below!
Generally I’d say stick to plainer clothes and avoid too many patterns or logos. A little bit of pattern/check is fine but patterns can be distracting if the whole family are wearing them. If you are unsure, lay all of the outfits out on a bed and you’ll get an idea of what they will look like together.
Zara always has great clothes, especially for younger children – here are some I’ve pulled off their site for the Autumn 2020 season. Gillets & scarves are great for adding a bit of colour or texture and boots always looks fabulous too. I especially love the olive green dress below.
I’ve also created a Pinterest Board with some autumn colour ideas – head over HERE for more inspiration!
