Fall Portraits at Golden Hour and Warm Sweaters

Now that we’re in the heat of the summer it makes me miss the fall sweater weather! We always seem to want what we don’t have, right? I loved going out on shoots to capture the warm fall colors and my friends in cozy sweaters. Plus doing those fall portraits at golden hour made for some magical moments. Golden hour is about 45min-1hour before the sun sets or rises. Once you find that warm, soft light that’s when your fall portraits will go to the next level. Take advantage of that time so there won’t be harsh shadows on your models face or squinty eyes. Of the shots below, which are your favorite?

I love the upclose shot of Kennadee because you get to see her beautiful freckles and soft smile.  I chose to use the golden hour light as a back light but you can also spice up your fall portraits by using the golden hour light as front lighting, rim lighting, and more. Check out this article for more details of how to take advantage of the light better during golden hour! Happy Shooting!
