"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." ~ Aaron Siskind

Outdoor Fall Portraits


Colors:  The best colors to wear for Fall portraits are (for tops): shades of brown, medium to dark orange, tans, beiges, medium to dark greens, mustard yellows, and even blacks.

Families - Coordinating Bottoms: Try to all have on the same type of pants such as khakis, blue jeans, black pants, etc.  If everyone has on khakis and one person has on blue jeans, that will stand out.  The object is to blend the clothes together and draw the attention to the people.

Families - Coordinating Tops: By wearing the same color tops, attention will be on the family and not the clothes and the family will appear as one cohesive unit.  The exception to this is you are trying to draw attention to one family member.  If the focus is on grandma or the grandparents, etc then it's ok to have them in slightly different colors IF they're in the center of the portrait at all times. 

Extended Families - Coordinating Tops: Each family group should be in the same color tone top.  Each family should have complimentary colors on.  For example one family in tan, one in brown, one in cream, etc.  Therefore everyone will match but you can still tell who is in which subgroup.


Here are some excellent examples of clothing choices!
