Outdoor Fall Session: Embrace Warm Tones and Layers

1. Earthy Color Schemes: Earthy tones are in vogue this fall. Think warm shades like burnt orange, deep burgundy, forest green, and mustard yellow. These colors complement the autumn foliage and bring a cozy, harmonious feel to your photos.

2. Preppy Textures: takes classic preppy elements and gives them a modern twist with unexpected textures and embellishments. Look for cardigans, button-downs, and polo shirts paired with sequined mini skirts, frothy tulle layers​, and sheer gauzy fabrics.

3. Accessories: Bows are making a big comeback, adorning everything from dresses to shoes. Also, hats, scarves, and boots can tie the whole look together. The key is to balance the overall look without going overboard.

Indoor Studio Christmas Session: Classic Elegance and Modern Twists

1. Classic Red and Green with a Modern Twist: Consider a color palette that combines classic holiday hues with modern tones. Metallic fabrics (gold, silver), dark greens, and neutrals like cream or soft grey to balance the look.

2. Metallic Accents: Incorporate metallic accents to add a festive sparkle to your photos. Silver and gold accessories, such as jewelry, belts, or even shoes, can elevate the elegance of your Christmas session. A silver headband for mom or gold shoes for the kids can make a subtle yet stunning difference.

3. Cozy and Chic: For a more relaxed yet chic look, think of cozy fabrics like velvet and cashmere in turtleneck dresses, well-tailored coats, and sleek jersey dresses. Velvet adds a touch of luxury and classic holiday spirit.

Tips for a Successful Session

  • Plan Ahead: Give yourself plenty of time to plan and coordinate outfits to avoid last-minute stress.
  • Stay True to Your Style: While trends are great, it’s important to choose outfits that reflect your family’s personality and comfort.
