Autumn Mini Sessions 2019 – A Visual Style and Colour Guide

Oct 1, 2019

If you’re booked an Outdoor Family Session or an Autumn Mini Session this season I hope you’ll find my visual style and colour guide really helpful when choosing how to dress your family.

Visual is always the best way to go so there are loads of pictures and idea for you to see.

TOP TIP

A family looks really great together when they’re coordinated.

I don’t mean matching, but choosing different colours that all harmonise and work with the amazing autumnal colours too.

Don’t worry, it’s not as difficult as it sounds.

Have a look through the colours and ideas throughout the blog post and see what you like. Then when you have some outfit ideas together put them all out on your bed and make sure that one person or item of clothing doing stand out or look odd with the others.

BE YOURSELVES

If you love prints, wear prints, if you prefer to keep things really classic and simple that’s great too.

I’d hate for you to look back at your pictures and not feel happy with what everyone is wearing.

IDEAS FROM THE HIGHSTREET

I chose Next and H&M mainly because they both have shops in Chesterfield. You can choose great outfits from anywhere though from Tesco to Joules.

IDEAS FOR THE GIRLS

IDEAS FOR THE BOYS

ACCESSORIES AND PROPS

Hats, caps, scarves, boots, all add to the scene, and are great to put on and take off to create variety in your images.

If you don’t want your kids to wear coats it’s a good idea to wear lots of light laters on a cold day, and double socks.

For autumn props aren’t really necessary. The leaves and conkers provide nice distractions for the kids. I have a few autumnal blankets and baskets if you’d like to use them.

A nice teddybear for young kids could be nice.

A FEW THINGS TO AVOID
Too much black.
Placement prints, large branding.
Special shoes on wet grass.
Fluro colours.
