You will be surprised at how often this is overlooked. Since you’ll be standing outside for a long period of time, short sleeves, thin fabrics, and open toe shoes will not be comfortable for very long. Shivering makes it hard to look happy and pose properly.
Protecting your skin should be a priority throughout the year, not just in summer. Use a good moisturizer to protect your skin from chilly winds.
Watch the weather
Warmer days may seem more pleasant but melting snow can change the entire look of your backdrop. If you are looking for light snow flurries (yes, even in the Fall!), try and keep an eye on the weather forecast to make sure that you don’t end up with melting or heavy snow.
If the weather isn’t exactly what you had hoped for, see if you can still make the photo session work. If you are however scheduling this session in advance, you may just have to work with the weather on that particular day.
Even though Fall has some amazing colors to work with, why not wear a splash of color to really stand out in your photos? For example, vibrant shades of plum, blues, and greens look amazing amongst crunchy brown leaves.
Plan your day
Taking your photos just after the sun rises or just before it sets will provide you with amazing lighting so try and plan your session around those times.
Take some hot tea or coffee along to make your photo session even more enjoyable and get ready for some beautiful results.
