Matthews, NC: Fall Photography Session Lookbook

Have you ever found yourself at a loss when selecting your outfit for a photography session? Below are some seasonally-inspired looks + tips to help inform your wardrobe decisions for your portrait session this season!



Autumn in the Carolinas is usually pretty warm until mid-November -long after the picturesque foliage has disappeared! Short-sleeved shift dresses like this one are a comfortable + flattering choice for fall portrait sessions in Charlotte.

This terracotta orange is one of my shades this season. I think the bow detail on the sleeve is charming! Because the dress is patterned, I kept my jewelry very minimal.

Choosing a patterned clothing that will photograph well can be a little tricky. Keep this in mind if you are considering a patterned piece for your portrait session -simplicity is key! Pick patterned items with only 2-3 colors involved, including the background.



A romper can be a fantastic choice for both outdoor and lifestyle photography sessions! Stylish yet practical, rompers lend the wearer both comfort and freedom of movement.

I adore the simple owl print that adorns this burgundy statement romper. I accented this playful piece with gold jewelry + a plain black belt.

The most popular color of the summer was marigold -a shade that can be easily transitioned into fall! I love the touchable details + flattering cut of this blouse.

Boots are my absolute favorite photography session footwear, both as photographer + subject! No matter where the session takes us, our boot-clad feet are safe + comfortable.
