Everything you need to know about Autumn Family Sessions including What to Wear advice | Jenna Marshall Photography

“Nothing ignites my soul more than Autumn leaves, bonfires, a cool breeze…

All things spooky are eerily nice, a good ghost story and a pumpkin spice”

Autumn is my absolute favourite time of the year!!! Everything about it! From the low glow from the sun, the crisp mornings, the beautiful colours on the trees and bushes, the knitwear, warm earthy tones are everywhere to be seen. Not forgetting hot chocolate, cuddling under blankets, the fun of halloween leading up to the excitement of christmas, there is so much to look forward. It makes my heart feel warm. So of course it is my favourite time to hold family sessions outdoors! My Autumn Mini Family Sessions will take place from mid September until the first weekend in November. 

The package details are below…

If you find it too hard to choose just 2 images to own from your gallery then after your session you can purchase files individually for £30 each or the whole gallery for £165.  


Tips on what to wear

Family: Please, please do not wear matching outfits. Gone are the days of everyone wearing jeans with white t-shirts, it just does not look good. Co-ordinate your outfits rather than match them. Think of the colours that would work well together. Earthy tones always work well like reds, browns, mustard, creams and greys. My favourite colour combinations at the moment are reds, mustards and creams or orange, greens and grey. Compliment each others outfit. Patterns look great in these sessions as long as everyone is not all wearing the same pattern. Personally I suggest no more than half the group be wearing patterns.

Stay away from neon colours and also no logos or character t-shirts!



Layers look great in all kind of sessions. Think of accessories such as scarves, hats and bracelets. Make sure your shoes are practical for the location of the session but also ensure they work with the rest of your outfit. You may want to bring some shoes to walk to the location in then change for the actually session when we are in the right place. Keep make up and hair clean and natural, keep away from heavy eye make up. Knitwear can really be good for adding texture to your images. A mix of Lace and denim can look really lovely too. Floaty dresses are my favourite.

Men can often be less cooperative than the kids when preparing for a photo session lol. Make sure you do lots of bribing! Same rules apply as above with regards to colours and patterns. No logos or sportswear to be worn. Including baseball caps! No running trainers either. Boots, brogues or converse like trainers are acceptable 😉

Stay away from character outfits and sportswear. Knitwear, denim, midlength dresses. Pastels are great for spring/summer. Most of all make sure they are comfortable in what they are wearing. If they feel uncomfortable it will show in their images.
