Fall is by far one of our favorite seasons for family photography. The beautiful colors undoubtedly make a unique and beautiful backdrop to any image. However, there are some other benefits beyond aesthetics to taking your family portraits during these months. Here are four reasons why we consider fall to be one of the best seasons for family photography.
The weather is perfect.
Parents know that taking their kids out in the sweltering summer heat or freezing winter cold is never fun. Furthermore, as a parent, nothing makes you feel less photogenic than sweating like a dog or shivering during your entire session. Thankfully, the seasons change and for a few months in autumn, we have absolutely perfect weather! Sessions are comfortable and the weather usually cooperates, at least until the snow comes!
You have more outfit options.
With warmer weather, it can be tough to get your family to wear long-sleeved sweaters and heavier clothing. However, once autumn rolls around, so do your options. The forecast is bright with fall outfits. You can still add some warmer options without getting too hot, but there is an opportunity to layer up a bit more as well - perfect for the colder months ahead!
Fall puts a feeling of excitement into the air.
There’s something about the changing of the seasons and the arrival of new outfits that put a general feeling of excitement into the air. Trust us, when your entire family is feeling the ‘vibe,’ it’s sure to shine through in your portraits!
