Fall Portrait Clothing Ideas by Photographers in Durango CO

My husband, Ken, and I are photographers in Durango CO. We photograph families, high school seniors, weddings, and boudoir (well, I photograph Boudoir – the hubby goes somewhere else:).

Fall is the most popular time of year for family and high school senior portraits, and even for weddings. Everybody loves the brilliant yellows and reds that come along with the trees changing their colors. As photographers in Durango CO we also love the fall colors and suggesting clothing for those sessions is what we do so that your portraits turn out gorgeous.

These are a couple of photos showing a high school senior girl in a gray dress with a scarf, and another in a maroon sweater.

Here’s a couple of family portraits. The first one wasn’t actually taken in the fall, but the colors of their clothing is great. Blues, turquoise, green, maroon, purples, browns, and violets are awesome colors for fall portraits.

Here’s another high school senior girl that dressed for success (haha) and for fall portraits.

I’m posting lots of family and senior photos taken during the fall because it’s always easier for people to envision their own portraits when they can see visual information. Here’s another family portrait taken with their six fur babies.

What I really love with family and senior portraits are when people use layering. Things like scarves, pretty sweaters or jackets, boots, and jewelry make those pictures so special. Here’s a few photos of clothing choices that I found on Pinterest.

When choosing your own clothing, lay them out on a bed to make sure the colors go well together. This is just a guide – you can choose the colors that you like.
