Colourful autumn photo shoot, Bristol
I love Autumn colours for family photo shoots
Every Autumn I search for the golden trees, red vines and crunchy leaves. I have taken photographs at various locations throughout Bristol and Bath to find the best spots for your autumn photo shoot. Hiring me as your Bristol Family photographer at this time of year is a real treat.
In autumn I base my special session days at Ashton Court Mansion, Leigh Woods and Westonbirt Arboretum Theses locations are all close to Bristol and Bath. With views of the city and suspension bridge. Photographing there has become a joy all months of the year with the diversity of trees and shrubbery to photograph.
When are the autumn leaves the brightest?
The leaves start to change colour in September and are at their peak the middle of October when I most enjoy photographing them.
I am absolutely thrilled with the photography outcomes and my families are too. The colours are so rich and uplifting making a wonderful background to all images. Autumn light is perfect for portraits and all sessions are scheduled around the best time of day.
What colour clothing is best to wear for an Autumn photo shoot?
I really recommend taking the time to plan your families clothing for an autumn photography session, to get the best images for your family.
For an outdoor autumn session you can choose to either wear subtle colours or striking, contrasting colours. You will probably know already if you are a person who loves strong bold colours or subtle accents. Also take a look at my examples in this Blog to help you.
If one person is wearing patterned please make sure that everyone else is plain.
Little accents of colour can also be added with hairbands, hats and accessories such as a toy aeroplane or wands.
For some great ideas, please see my Pinterest page
Plain clothing is best with small details.
Try and pick the whole family colour scheme based around one or 2 colours maximum: Red, yellow, blues, oranges, browns, purple.
Colours to avoid
Avoid green and white if possible, cream is fine.
