13+ Beautiful, Simple Fall Family Photoshoot Outfits To Inspire You [2021]

Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite fall family photoshoot outfits for 2021.

I love fall.

I think it’s a pretty common sentiment.

This fall, though, is exceptionally special for me.

We’re finally getting family photographs done.

And this time, we’ve got the most precious new addition, our little Hudson Oliver.

In preparing for our fall family pictures, I have been looking for inspiration and come across a number of incredibly talented photographers, incredibly stylish families and beautiful fall color schemes that just shout it’s fall, y’all.

The Best Fall Family Photoshoot Outfits

From classic buffalo check, to thick, chunky knits, to corduroy and velvet and beyond – I’ve put together some serious fall family photoshoot outfit ideas that will have you feeling inspired before you know it.

As we explore what makes these fall family picture outfits so eye-catching, try to think of clothing items your family already owns.

Make note of what the materials and styles that you love and use them as a jumping-off point if you plan on purchasing some new pieces.

Let’s dive in –

Warm Brown and Beige Fall Family Photo Color Scheme

Shades of warm chestnut, oatmeal and almond play off of each other and look beautiful amongst a similarly-colored fall backdrop.

Dad shows us that a dark grey top goes well with brown pants and the mix of deeper shades on dad and lighter shades on the rest of the family create a nice, interesting contrast. 

Their little guy’s buffalo check plaid layer adds interest to the photo, and baby’s bow is the cherry on top. 

White, Olive, and Rust Fall Family Photoshoot Outfits

Suede, corduroy, plaid flannel, cable knit.

So fall.

White and cream flow into shades of brown, and the little guy’s adorable jacket in a deep olive ties with his plaid shirt that’s cream and green.

Outfits and Outings

All of this amongst the sandy, rocky beige backdrop. It just works.

Mommy and daughter steal the show in a pop of pink, with dresses in complimentary shades of dusty rose. The flowy sleeves and gathered waist on both dresses also do a lovely job of playing off one another, but also bringing a sense of togetherness to the picture.

Dad’s blue pants is the perfect match for the ladies, and the color is continued in the little girl’s neck scarf as well as (though it’s hard to see in these photos) – light blue stripes on his little guy’s button-down shirt.

How about that cashmere? – or other luxe knit – on their little guy?

Just lovely.

Moss Green and Burnt Orange Fall Family Photoshoot Outfits

I want to call the color of Dad’s shirt moss. 

And the orange, I’m going to call it a burnt orange. 

Burnt orange and moss – the colors that paint a valley of trees in the fall. 

How’s that for a tip? 

Jesse Salter

In coming up with a color scheme for your family’s fall pictures, a good rule of thumb is to echo the tones and shades that you see in nature at this time of year.

Does that top look like it could blend into a pile of freshly-raked leaves?

Add to cart.

Another tip?

Fall family photoshoot outfits really come together when a similar color, or element, is repeated on different family members.

Mamas gorgeous butterscotch dress is soft and silky and pairs so beautifully with her little ones’ chunky knit beanie and war

striped sweater.

So –

The tip?

Look for pieces with contrasting textures – it really does add so much interest to the images.

How cool is this little family?

I feel like I need their Spotify playlists.

Dad’s super cool taupe suede hat kicks his simple white tee and black jeans up like 8 notches and the pattern on mom’s dress echoes his ensemble wonderfully.

The littles ones in shades of brown – suede and linen.

I’m telling you, people, textures are the secret ingredient here!

Silvery Sage, Beige and Cream Fall Family Photoshoot Outfits

For a look that leans a bit more dressed up, consider a flowy, silky dress in a soft shade like this sage color for mom. 

Here, dad and baby keep it classic with beige chinos, a classic white button-down for dad, and oatmeal linen button-down for baby, so as to not take away from moms pretty frock.
