Colourful family portraits

Autumn mini session

Autumn mini session is a colourful outdoor family portrait photo shoot. I always choose location with great autumn touch and vivid colours.

Autumn mini season is for sure the most colourful and very beautiful time of the year. But unfortunately, for many it also means the end of summer holidays and warm weather. However, I, as a photographer, see it from a whole different perspective as well. Because of all the vivid colours and leaves, it is ideal scenery for new family portrait ideas. In addition, it is also a great way for a family day out where I get a lot of opportunities to capture gorgeous children smiles.

Just imagine a child with a suitcase sitting on the bench on a tree-lined avenue or maybe a girl with an umbrella and wellies in the rain. But above all, one of my favourites is a family “fight” with colourful autumn leaves. These are just a few of outdoor autumn mini session ideas and every year I create new ones too. This year, I already have something new in my mind with magnificent new parks and locations as well. Furthermore, I enhance autumn mini sessions with amazing photo props too – including free helium balloons for kids.

What to expect on the autumn mini session

Autumn season is very unpredictable, so I will start with this topic first. If you haven’t done it yet, start with reading my autumn mini session leaflet (published above). It will give you lots of information and answers to the most common questions – including the weather. For example, heavy rain and bad forecast will be the cause for rescheduled session, but clouds and a bit of cold, won’t. However, either way, I will be in touch, so that we can discuss any question you might have.

Every year I choose new photo locations and create autumn portraits at the old ones as well. I always have many photo props with me too but they are weather and location depending. Because of the scenery, terrain, woods, permits, etc., we cannot use all the props everywhere. However, don’t worry, the locations are always easy accessible for pushchairs and allow your 4-leg friends. In addition, expect to have some family leaf “fight” and lots of fun too!

Natural photo props

Not always photo props are needed as nature provide many of them. I really like kids sitting on the log or hiding behind them.

Golden hour and soft light

Autumn woods really can shine and emphasize vivid colours with the right light. Because of that, I love morning time or golden hour.
