Michigan, Portage Potographer: UPDATE 2015 What to wear for Fall Family Photos!

UPDATE:  Last year I chose to photograph my kiddos in one of my favorite color schemes - jeans with browns/tans and pops of mint!!  We love how our 'Children of the Corn' shot turned out!!

Family portraits any time of year are hard to pull together!  Choosing clothing that works on each family member and doesn't clash with the group can seem impossible.  Soooo, I'm handing over a few tips that I use to take the stress out of dressing your family for Fall portraits.

First, fall portraits always look great when you incorporate layers.  Layers provide extra texture and interest to your outfits, and they can keep everyone warm if it's a chilly fall day.  Next, I suggest starting with two color families and adding some pops of seasonal color to brighten your look.  Some of my favorite color schemes for Fall are detailed below:


Here's one example of how I would use Browns & Tans with pops of Wine for dressing the whole family:


I hope my favorites will give you inspiration to pull together your Fall outfits with a little less stress!
