Tis the season!!
This is the time of the year to plan photography. The fall brings cooler temperatures, family holiday gatherings and the anticipation of a new year. This is a great time to document the special relationships of your life. Relationships are very important to me. I love the time I spend with clients and want them to have the best photos of their family moments to treasure for a lifetime.
By all means schedule a session with a professional photographer to capture the best images of your family. At Faces-Places-Photography I am dedicated to providing you with photographs that will be heirlooms for years to come. I conduct pre and post photography session consultations, at which time we will be planning clothing choices, as well determining the type of images that you desire for your home. We deliver the photographs promptly and are committed to providing a package that you will love. Our photographs are fully retouched and professionally printed.
When preparing for fall photos clothing choices are very important. The goal is to find a way for the clothing to be coordinated, but not matching. I have found that staying within a color family can be a very helpful way to start. That will narrow down the many choices by virtue of staying with a particular color family.
Warm colors include shades of red, orange and yellow and variations of those colors. The last gasp of summer, beautiful fall sunsets, campfires and smores. The warm colors combined with neutrals can add depth to the color palette.
Cool colors include shades of green, blue and purple and variations on those colors. They are fall mornings and the promise of winter. Combining these colors with neutrals will also open up the possibilities for this color family.
Within the color families you can begin to mix the palette to provide contrast and impact. Care must be given to patterns, shades and tones to insure that the clothing works well as a complement to the photograph.
Neutral clothing will focus the photograph on the families faces as well as on the surrounding environment. In the event you have a big family neutral clothing is a great choice.
There are many sources to choose from to help decide on clothing choices that will be best for your family. Be sure to take into account where you would like your photos to be hung in your home. It is always great to make a "who, what, where and how," list to help to determine what to wear and where you would like your family photos made. Erin Cobb does a wonderful job educating clients about what they should wear to their photo session. Her photographs are a great example of using clothing to compliment the session.
