Can you believe that Fall is here? Although it may not feel like fall, your trusty calendar will tell you that it’s already September. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, partly because the weather is just so amazing! It’s such a wonderful break from those hot summer days to have some breezy fall weather. BUT what I really love about fall is that I get to take amazing Walnut Creek family photos! Come September and October my calendar is bustling with lots of beautiful family sessions! Fall means that everyone is pulling out their sweaters and practicing smiles for those amazing family photos they’ve been itching to take!

I’ll be holding some fall mini sessions this coming season as well as some full sessions and hope that you get to book one of them! Since you’re probably thinking about your upcoming family session, I thought I would do a fun little roundup of some favorite fall pieces that would photograph beautifully! So without further ado, here they are! 

Mom: Flower Dress

Dad: Light Blue Shirt with Khaki Pants

Baby Girl: Zara Corduroy Dress

Baby Boy: Knit Overalls

Girl: Target Pattern Dress

Boy: Chinos with Shirt

Even if none of the above pieces strike your fancy, they’re a great inspiration! Clothing like what is listed above will photograph great, which is one of the aspects of making sure your photos turn out as amazing as possible! The colors of the clothing above as well as the styles are great go-to’s. Maybe your style is different than this, and that’s okay! You can totally take what is listed above and put your own spin on it. Feel free to reach out to me anytime to help plan your outfits for your family session! I love being able to help you choose what to wear for your family photos with me!
