LGBTQ+ Fall Family Wardrobe

Why is fall so popular for family portraits?

I love every time I get an LGBTQ+ inquiry but, I have to admit that once we arrive in August every year that I start getting worried about fitting everyone in! If you’ve heard it once, you have heard it 1000 times. Every photographer is busy come fall (August-October). You’ve heard it so much because it’s true!

Everyone loves fall for a variety of reasons. Firstly, autumn is full of color. The weather ranges from cool to warm. This allows you to choose lots of layering pieces, creating more interest for your final images!

This fall, I finally purchased a great client management software that you will automatically access by putting in an inquiry HERE!

Why is my family’s wardrobe so important?

One of the more time-intense things that can hold people up from booking is picking out family wardrobe for fall portraits. It can be a daunting task. The more pieces, the more complicated it can seem. But no fear!! I’m here and always happy to help in one of four ways: by text, in person shopping, shopping your closet, or by sending links to wardrobe that will fit your budget.

Your family wardrobe for portraits is so important! I didn’t include accessories here but they are also a vital piece of your family wardrobe.

Included with your session is a styling guide that will go a lot more in depth but here are some quick links to get you started!

I LOVE helping LGBTQ+ families choose wardrobe. For those parents who identify as women there are a ton of options to pick from. Dresses, jumpsuits, leggings, suits, and these are just a few! And for those parents who identify as non-binary or men we can look at all the options ranging from casual all the way through formal.
