Now that the leaves are starting to turn colour and fall, it’s the perfect time for a beautiful outdoor photoshoot. Fall is the perfect season for an outdoor photoshoot—not only are there beautiful natural scenes in the autumn, it’s also still warm enough outside that you can get your picture taken without getting too uncomfortable. If you’re planning a fall photoshoot this season, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Dress Weather Appropriately

It’s not quite winter yet, but that doesn’t mean that shorts and a t-shirt will be enough to keep you warm during an outdoor fall photoshoot. It’s important to wear something that will keep you warm—photoshoots can last for a long time, up to a few hours, and you don’t want to be stuck outside in an outfit that makes you chilly or uncomfortable. Plan ahead by looking up the weather forecast before your photoshoot and prepare an outfit that is appropriate for the weather.

Use Your Surroundings

The best fall photoshoots are the ones where the models take full advantage of their natural surroundings. If you know of a nearby park or meadow that is filled with trees, the falling foliage could create the perfect background for your photos. Scout locations beforehand to find the perfect place for your fall photoshoot. Think about how you want your photos to look—do you want to use the soft morning light, or would you prefer the more intimate lighting at sunset? Making these aesthetic and practical choices before the photoshoot while make it easier to execute once your photographer arrives.
