Capture the Present With These Fall Family Photoshoot Ideas
Mother Nature loves to show off her beauty in the fall. Family fall photoshoots let you showcase your gorgeous family right alongside nature’s exhibition of its splendor. The cool weather, diffuse natural light, and vibrant colors of the landscape all provide you and your photographer a backdrop for awesome family photos.
Here are six fall photoshoot ideas your photographer might suggest.
The Golden Hour
Unlike summer with its harsh light, fall shines a soft, diffuse light with a flatter arc across the sky. Skilled photographers know how to time this golden hour and use it to paint your family photos with a gentle, faltering glow.
An hour or so before dusk, the sun bathes the landscape with a golden light that transforms long, brown grass into a dreamy, airy mass of foliage against which your family glows.
If the golden hour proves elusive the day you schedule your family fall photoshoots, your professional photographer can capture your family photos in a way that provides the perfect canvas for swapping in a beautiful golden hour sky during editing.
Quintessential Autumn Leaves
The autumn season showcases reds, oranges, and yellows in a vibrant palette that makes for the perfect fall family photoshoot setting. Your photographer will ask your family to pose right in the leaves, a soft quilt that nature provides in the fall. They’ll take photos of you in a few formal poses then capture you having fun tossing the leaves with your kids.
Shades of Brown
You might not be fortunate to live in an area where the full symphony of fall colors is on display. Regardless, a talented photographer can do a lot with one color: brown. When shades of brown are all there is to work with, a professional can achieve impressive photos with just the golden hour light and the right autumn wardrobe.
In the absence of autumn colors within your natural setting, your photographer may suggest deep fall colors, such as burgundy, mustard, and chocolate browns, to shine through a backdrop with neutral colors and achieve great fall family photos.
Dreamy Watercolor-Esque Foliage
While we’re on the subject of autumn leaves, another great backdrop for fall family photos is trees blanketed in leaves with fall colors. Your photographer with use the zoom lens and a wide aperture to achieve a watercolor aesthetic with a dreamy backdrop. Later, during editing, they might enhance or alter some hues in the backdrop to create fantastic fall family photos.
A Subtle Touch
An experienced photographer can use a subtle touch of autumn in your family photos to make them breathtaking. For example, rather than taking photos of your family amidst trees and leaves, the photographer might use a singles branch of leaves to inject a hint of fall into your photos.
Alternatively, they might have your child hold a single colored leaf to give your family photo the autumn flavor while maintaining a timeless, all-season charm.
Studio Photoshoot Ideas
Suppose you would prefer to have your fall photoshoot taken indoors, hiring a professional photographer with a warm and friendly studio. In that case, the photographer can provide you with many different and beautiful ideas. Just make sure the photographer you choose is experienced in indoor fall photos. And vital as well know how to work with families with children of all ages.
