Helen Rowan Photography – Outfit and Styling Guide for an Autumn Family Photoshoot in Chesterfield Derbyshire

Outfit and Styling Guide for an Autumn Family Photoshoot in Chesterfield Derbyshire

By Helen Rowan Photography

I’ve put together a quick guild to give you a few ideas of how to style outfits for an autumn family photoshoot this October and November.

Autumn is a magical time for outdoor photos because of it’s beautiful rich colour palette. During the summer when the landscape is quite neutral and most colours look great as long as they’re well coordinated. The months of October and November are different. The beautiful natural colours really rule the show. It’s best to stick to some rough colour guidelines to ensure that your outfit choices work with the autumnal feel.

One – Bright playful palette

Mixing ocre, yellow, orange and light grey back with blue/denim.

My advice is to always keep it personal to you, making it as styled or understated as you’d like. A few little accessories can be great to add interest to the set.

Simple styling that you could bring along might include –

  • A hat – this could be a pom-pom hat, a flat cap, or even a large rim felt hat perhaps?
  • Hair Piece for girls – bow, band
  • Traditional teddy bear
  • Scarf
  • Boots – brown leather boots, or cool wellies are great for autumn

I’ll be bringing along a few bits that you’re welcome to use

  • Blankets
  • Conkers and Pine cones
  • Boxes/Crates
  • Small Baskets
  • Wooden Chair

Please feel free to bring along any extra bits that you’d like to use
