This Connecticut senior portrait session took place during one of my favorite times of year at one of my favorite places. Fall in New England makes natural lighting just magical. The colors on the leaves vary, and then whatever sunlight pours through changes and filters the light and colors in a whole new way. You could literally do a senior portrait session in the same place each weekend and have them turn out in their own unique way. But! I do like to change up locations to keep it interesting for everyone. Holcomb Farm is a great place for portraits because it’s simple to get a variety of locations without leaving the property. You have the rustic barns and fences, quiet trails, open spaces with hills as a backdrop, and then the grassy fields.
Tips for a Fall Connecticut Senior Portrait Session
- Dress in layers. Fall can be cool or downright cold, depending on the year. So think sundresses with a denim jacket, jeans paired with lightweight shirts and topped with a sweater, and bring flats, sneakers and/or boots.
- Accessorize. Sure, that can mean jewelry, but it also means varying the wardrobe with scarves, sweaters/cardigans or hats.
- Lighting is everything. That late afternoon sunlight is golden, but it’s important to remember that the days are shorter in the fall. (Luckily, you don’t really have to worry about that since I’ll tell you when the best timeframe for photos is!)
My biggest tip? Have FUN! It shows in the photos, and I’m here to help you have a blast and create memories that will be captured in the photos for years to come!
