I LOVE FALL Y'ALL!
I do! And I don't even drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes...although I love the smell when I walk into Starbucks. I love everything about Fall, from the chillier mornings to the warmer afternoons and then the cool Fall evenings that just make me want to bundle up in front of a fire pit! Plus the photo opportunities around Colorado Springs definitely excite me for Fall Family portrait sessions! Fall photo sessions are a great way to update your family picture and have something fresh to add to your Christmas card (Gah...how is it time to talk about Christmas already?!?!)
And, the clothes...let's just talk about the clothes! Leggings and tunics are my jam y'all...people think you actually got dressed when you wear leggings and a tunic - versus my typical wardrobe of capri workout leggings and tank tops. Throw on some cute booties and you are fashionable and comfortable. Fall for the win!
Another bonus of Fall is the changing leaves and the color palette. Each year, it varies a little bit, but most of it is pretty standard. Maroons, navy blues, golden/mustard yellows - I love them all. When I Facebook friend (Yay, Daisy and Elm Jewelry) and previous client recently posted about the Fall Pantone colors for 2017, I had to giggle, as I have been recommending a VERY similar Fall palette to my clients for their Fall family photos in Colorado Springs for the past few weeks.
Since not all of you are my clients and you may want to be clued in to this year's trends, I thought I'd share here as well! Here's what Alyson posted...
