Indoor & Outdoor Fall Family Photo Outfits

With fall on the horizon, you might have family photos on your mind. Fall is such a perfect time of year to capture precious family photos that can be given in Christmas cards and cherished for years to come. 

In this post, we are sharing some of the best modern and chic indoor and outdoor fall family photo outfits. With these outfit ideas, you will be inspired as you decide what clothing to wear for the upcoming family photo session. 

Additionally, if you need ideas for colors or a color palette, we’ve got you covered!

When it comes to family pictures in autumn, it’s important to pick cohesive and modern outfits for the whole family. Because fall is often cooler, choose pieces that suit the season such as knit sweaters, midi skirts, trousers, jeans, long-sleeve shirts, blouses, or dresses, denim or leather jackets, ankle boots, dress shoes, loafers, and other closed-toe footwear.

Depending on how formal you want your family pictures to be, you can decide between more dressy clothing items or pieces that are more laid-back and casual. Choose what reflects your family best.

The last thing you want is for everyone to feel uncomfortable in their clothing, especially the little ones, as that will make for less natural-looking photos…and fewer smiling faces!

For a fall photo shoot, it’s best to go with neutral colors as the base of your outfits, then add subtle pops of earthy colors for interest. You can go with solid colors and add subtly patterned prints. Below are some color palette ideas to get you started:

  • ivory, tan, charcoal, and camel
  • forest green cream, brown, and tan
  • tan, ivory, camel, and navy blue
  • cream, rust, sage green, and tan
  • ivory, forest green, tan, and burnt orange
  • camel, burnt orange, ivory, and navy blue

If you are taking your photo session outdoors in the fall, it’s important to dress appropriately. If the weather is cool, be sure to bring along layers to avoid getting a chill as photography sessions are often 1-2 hours long.

For example, a long-sleeve floral dress with suede ankle boots will look great with a denim or leather jacket layered over top. A lightweight jacket, shawl, blanket scarf, vest, or wool fedora works as nice a accessory but also an added layer if needed.

Additionally, choosing the proper shoes for an outdoor photoshoot in the fall is key. Because you’ll be walking around outside, possibly on uneven terrain, this is a time to avoid high-heeled pumps or strappy sandals. Instead, wear a pair of heeled ankle or knee-high boots that have a wide, sturdy heel. Or, try other options like loafers, dress shoes, or sneakers for a more casual shoot. 

Outdoor Fall Family Photoshoot Outfit Ideas

Below are our favorite looks for a stunning outdoor family photo session. We love the mix of neutrals with subtle pops of earth tones and stunning fall-inspired prints and patterns. 

fall florals, tan, and denim.

We love this family portrait with the mom in a lovely floral dress with fall colors and the dad in a denim button-up shirt and tan pants. The little ones are in ivory tops and a mix of denim and tan bottoms to tie the look together. 

You can never go wrong when mixing neutrals with subtle earthy colors for fall family photo outfits. You might also want to take a peek at our list of the best family photoshoot dresses that flatter!

florals and neutrals.

Here is another example of how dark floral prints can work wonderfully with a mix of neutrals for fall family photo outfits. The mom and one daughter are in unique floral prints while the other two little ones are in all neutrals. 

If you overdo it with prints and patterns the outfits can overwhelm the photos, so always mix with solid neutrals for a cohesive look. 

fringed suede and shearling.

get the look:

This family picture is out-of-this-world cute with mom and daughter in matching white dresses and brown suede fringed jackets. The dad has a masculine look with an edgy leather and shearling jacket, along with dark wash denim to keep the look balanced. 

The colors in the family outfits play off the fall colors in the background creating a dreamy photo that is pleasing to the eye. 

blush and green hues.

get the look:

Cute, cute, cute! This mother-daughter outfit combo is so darling and we are here for it. The mom is in blush pink overalls with an earthy brown blazer and turtleneck sweater. And, the little girl looks so precious in a printed floral jacket and sage green skirt. 

This outfit combination is great for a family photography session apple-picking in the fall, and it shows how a mix of earthy colors can totally work.

coastal vibes.

get the look:

If you are lucky enough to live on the coast you have to take advantage of the scenery for your fall family photoshoot! These outfits are laid-back and casual with a coastal vibe.

We love the little one in a knit sweater, leggings, and hunter boots, along with the mom in a long trench coat and ankle boots. The Dad is in jeans, classic brown shoes, and an earthy brown sweater which ties the fall look together. 

laid-back black and tan.

Keep your fall family photo outfits uncomplicated with a look like this. Everyone is wearing black and the dad and boy are in camel color pants, a great tone for autumn. 

The daughter is in a polka-dot white and black top, and everyone wears black boots (and a pair of super cute black sneakers!). 

Pro tip: Bring along a letter board for a fun addition to a few of your family photos, try one of these fall letter board quotes!

black, brown, and ivory.

get the look:

The family outfits in this photo are perfection. We love the tiered midi dress on the mom paired with black boots for an edgy vibe. The dad is in a black shirt and jeans with a brown button-down. 

The little one looks super cute in an ivory jumper with sage green accents. The black and earthy tones work so well together against the yellow pops of the sunflower field in the background. 

burnt orange and creamy neutrals.

get the look:

If you love brighter colors, burnt orange is a great option for your fall family photo outfits. In this family picture, the orange blends perfectly with the cream and ivory tones, along with the tan pants on the dad. 

Because orange is more of a bold choice, it’s best combined with subtle neutrals. We also love how the family is wearing warm knit sweaters and the mom is in a long sleeve midi dress, perfect for autumn weather. 

cozy grey knits + mist blue.

This cozy fall family photo definitely has Pacific Northwest vibes. We love the chunky knit sweaters, tan pants, and touches of blue.

Leather boots are always a great option for the guys, and if you want to wear cozy, casual clothing… go for it! These are your family photos after all, so they should reflect the true personality of your little family!

modern country vibes.

get the look:

This Idaho family knows how to dress for perfect fall photos. We love the neutral browns and tan mixed with denim. The look has a country vibe but still feels elevated. 

The mom is in a pretty knit midi sweater dress and the dad wears a shearling patterned jacket. The sneakers on the boys keep the look casual and approachable. Two thumbs up from us! 

perfect in plaid.

get the look:

Plaid is always an excellent choice in the fall, especially in brown and neutral tones. We love the mother-daughter look here with plaid jackets and denim which keeps the look laid-back and relaxed. 

For another parent or other siblings, we recommend sticking with tan or camel and denim. Because the plaid should be an accent, it’s best to only have one or two people wearing it, and everyone else in neutrals. 

light, airy, and earthy.

Often fall family photos can be darker and moody with fall colors. But, if you prefer a light and airy vibe to your family photos, this picture is great for outfit inspiration. 

The mom is in an ivory dress and brown booties, while the two boys are in beige and brown. The dad is in a brown button-up shirt and tan pants, adding some contrast to the lighter colors. 

black, leather, and camel.

get the look:

If you like the idea of an urban setting for outdoor fall family photos, this outfit combination is a great option. We love the look of black leather, camel, and denim against the city backdrop. 

The mom is in a chic black dress with lug boots, and the dad looks great in jeans and a camel sweater. The little boy looks incredibly cute in a leather jacket, jeans, and sneakers. 

metallic brown and plaid.

get the look:

This gorgeous family definitely knows how to pull off earthy color tones in the fall!

We love the metallic brown dress on the mom, which gives a slightly more formal feel to the photo. But, the jeans on the dad and the relaxed outfit on the little boy keeps the photo from feeling too formal or stuffy. 

beanies and black.

get the look:

This family radiates cool vibes! We love this idea for fall family photo outfits with the boys in matching beanies and everyone in black and tan. 

The touch of burnt orange in the accessories adds the right pops of color to this fall family photo and we are here for it!

Indoor Fall Family Pictures Outfit Ideas

If you’ll be in a studio or at home for your fall family photo shoot, you can still get incredible photos. Below are our favorite looks for a memorable indoor family session.

casual in the kitchen.

get the look:

Fall family photos do not have to be outdoors, especially if the weather isn’t cooperating. Bring the shoot indoors with a laid-back, cozy-at-home vibe and put everyone in denim and casual tops.

We love the feel of this family photo shoot and with the color tones, we definitely think it could work for fall! 

beige, blue, and florals.

If you have access to a funky loft studio like this one, it’s definitely worth taking advantage of for your fall family photos. We love the relaxed look of this family and the outfits are on point. 

The mom is in a subtle blue floral maxi dress and loafers, while the dad wears a beige shirt and jeans. The little one looks extra cute in a sage green jumpsuit and light brown leather booties. 

laid-back denim and white shoes.

All you need is a white space to get the perfect minimalist fall family photos. We love this laid-back look with the mom and dad in vintage-wash jeans, white shoes, and casual tops. 

The little bambino is in a cute neutral knit jumper. The outfits are cool, casual, and perfect for a family who doesn’t want any fuss.

black knits and shades of brown.

Lastly, we have one more studio photoshoot to show you just how nice indoor photos can look in the fall. This family looks great in black outfits and the baby in a monochromatic brown ensemble. 

The outfits are perfect for the fall season and have a chic and elevated vibe. Perfection!
