North Andover Fall Family Photos
There is something bittersweet about the end of summer. On the one hand, I love summer. The sunshine, the long lazy days, it’s all fantastic. But then comes fall. And fall in New England is magical. It’s easy to mourn the loss of summer but keep scrolling and you’ll feel better about fall being here, I promise! I photographed this adorable family last year for their North Andover fall family photos. This mama is actually my hair stylist, which is a sacred relationship (ha!). This made the session a little extra special for me. Plus, how beautiful are her two little girls? Unreal.
Styling Ideas from these North Andover Fall Family Photos
I have this motto when it comes to styling. Gray is ALWAYS a good idea. Seriously, gray is such a great color. It goes with absolutely everything. And there’s something so cozy about the color gray. Whether it’s light dove gray like big sister’s cardigan or darker heather gray like little sister’s super cute poncho, gray is a perfect color.
Mom’s pink vest adds just the right pop of color. It’s not a bright color, so it doesn’t clash with the background, but it brightens everything up. Dad’s plaid shirt sticks with the gray theme while also adding a little contrast. And of course I have to mention the gold on big sister’s shirt. A little pop of gold is never a bad choice. And the way that the light reflects off of it definitely makes this little one shine.
Wall Gallery Ideas
After your session it’s time to decide what prints and products you want. And right now, I’m obsessed with wall art galleries. Chances are you’ve seen examples on Pinterest or Instagram. They’re such a great way to show off your family. Plus, your wall gallery can grow with you. Instead of swapping out older photos for newer ones, you can continue to add to them. Whether you like the super cohesive look, or a quirkier mismatch look. All your photos could be the same size, or a variation. It can be all framed art, or all canvases, or a mix.
And I can help by making a wall mock-up for you. Using a photo of your wall, I can add the photos from your session digitally so you can see how the gallery will look before you buy!
