Autumn Photography

Updated: Oct 5, 2018

What a treat we have upon us - autumn - nature's colour show! What's not to love about autumn... the beautiful warm colours, the crispy sunny mornings and cold clear blue skies during the evenings. Time to dig out that cozy jumper, get your scarf and mittens out, make a cup of tea and head to the park. It is nature's treat before the cold winter. Autumn is, hands down, my favourite season and I want to dedicate this autumn to my outdoor photography.

There will be some really nice photoshoots coming up. I'm currently planning a maternity and family sessions in the beautiful Battersea Park in London. I went there to scout some spots for the upcoming sessions and did a mini shoot with the kids. The autumn colours were not quite there yet but the mid morning sun was just perfect.

I cannot wait for final the symphony of autumn - the really deep red tones, rich and beautiful oranges and soft brown colours - soon they will appear.

In these photos you will still see the strong greens, gentle yellows and amazing reds. These colours create simply captivating autumn photographs. Morning or late afternoon sun is the best time to head out with the camera.

The beautiful light gives these images the added warmth and a natural gentle touch. Enhancing the contrast in post-processing; these photos will have the additional strength and make more of a statement. I wanted to find colours elsewhere as well, not only in the nature's settings. Little bench with red details or a band stand with strong colours and shapes will delivered a stronger message. Notice the amazing shadows the fencing creates.

If you are planning a photoshoot in the autumn colours; think about the clothing you and your family will be wearing. Think about a colour palette and stick with it, whatever you and your family chooses to wear - be comfortable! If someone is not happy with their outfit, it will show through.

Jeans and denim goes beautifully with greys, soft creams, off whites and blues. If you choose i.e mustard or red coloured item, make sure everyone or at least two members wear something in that colour. Autumn is about cozy jumpers, chunky knits and layers and those look amazing in autumn photos!

Autumn photography is an opportunity to let kids be kids and capture that happiness and genuine joy of running around. These little friends are perfect sub
