Where Should I Have My Family Photoshoot This Fall? 

Fall is a beautiful time of year and provides so many colors and background options to pick from when it comes to your family’s next seasonal photoshoot.

Here are a few of our favorite fall photoshoot ideas that the whole family is sure to love:

Pumpkin Patches

You can’t go wrong with the classics! Not only is a pumpkin patch a fun and festive spot for taking those fall photos, but you’ll be able to capture a day of memories, from picking out pumpkins to taking hayrides to enjoying apple cider in the sunshine.

There’s so much to do at a pumpkin patch that you’ll be able to capture a lot of great in-action shots and find fun accessories for adding your family’s personal style to every photo.

In the Fall Foliage 

Does your family love jumping in leaf piles? This is the perfect photoshoot idea for you. It’s cute, colorful, and easy to set up right at home. There’s nothing cuter than a little one in a pile of leaves. The bright and bold colors are easy to match with gorgeous fall outfits for a festive final product every time.

Toss leaves in the air for a touch of movement and creativity, and try different poses with bright and big leaves.

A Halloween Theme

Save the memory of your family’s Halloween costumes with a Halloween-inspired family fall photoshoot. There are so many ways to capture a Halloween style, and you’re sure to find something perfect for your family. 

Match your background and pose to your costumes. Go for a spooky and magical style with dry ice and witchy outfits, or embrace fun and festive Halloween decorations with pumpkins, ghosts, and skeletons for a scary good time and a whole lot of laughs.

Near the Fireplace 

The fireplace is traditionally used for Christmas photoshoots, but who says it can’t be a great spot for fall, as well? It’s easy to try out different poses and play around with different fall accessories and decorations like pumpkins, Halloween décor, Thanksgiving garland, and more. 

Try out drapes in different fall colors and let your family’s personality really show through.

What Should We Wear? 

Now that your family has the perfect background for the next fall photoshoot, it’s time to pick out that perfect outfit to match. PixieLane has you covered. We’re sharing some of our favorite ideas and styles for cute, matching fall photoshoot outfits that the whole family will find fun and comfortable.

Here are some of our top picks:

Cozy Sweaters

Fall is all about cozy sweaters—and for a good reason! They’re comfortable, versatile, and easy to match and provide plenty of mobility for whatever fun or funky poses you pick for your next photoshoot. You can mix and match your family’s sweaters based on color, style, or print, and it’s easy to accessorize with hairpieces, jewelry, scarves, and more.

Cozy sweaters are a great option for photoshoots because they’re so comfortable, so you don’t have to worry about the little ones taking off their cute outfits before you get that perfect shot. 

They’ll also help you to stay warm on the chilliest outdoor shoots, and you can dress them up for holiday cards or down for more casual photos. Gather the whole family to pick out festive and unique fall sweaters to fit your individual personalities.

Sporty Leggings

Fall delivers on our favorite sports. There’s nothing like playing football with the whole family on Thanksgiving morning. That’s why we love a photoshoot with sporty and comfortable leggings.

Sporty leggings are incredibly versatile and can be paired up or down, depending on the occasion. Try out cute blouses, comfy sweaters, or matching fall tees to really make these sporty legging looks all your own.

Sporty leggings are also great because they provide plenty of mobility for outdoor photoshoots. Plus, you can capture a few action shots with the football in the backyard. Now that’s a memory you won’t want to forget.

Flannel Lounge Pants

We’re all about the comfy and cozy, and there’s nothing cozier than flannel lounge pants. Not only are they perfect for capturing that lovely fall vibe and keeping the whole family warm, but they come in many cute and unique colors that will match your favorite fall décor and backgrounds.

You can find flannel lounge pants as joggers, leggings, or even yoga pants. They pair well with sweaters, cardigans, hoodies, and tees, so everyone in the family can represent their own personal style in comfort and confidence. Braids, buns, and messy curls are super cute for both mom and daughters and give off a fun and casual look that’s still totally chic.

Holiday Dresses

If you want to take the glam up to the next level, then holiday dresses are the way to go. They’re available in so many cute fall colors, and you can mix and match them with fun leggings, boots, and hair accessories.

Can’t get enough of the plaid? Snag a holiday dress in your favorite pattern and layer it with a cute sweater to match.
