Elkridge Maternity Portraits – Fall colors

Fall is a perfect time to get out of the studio and into the great outdoors for family pictures. We’re fortunate to have some great color around our studio in Elkridge this year. The fall colors are nearing their peak! We likely have one more week of this brilliant orange, yellow and red before it’s all gone for the season.

This beautiful couple had some mad styling skills, especially since they traveled from North Carolina for their session! The wardrobe options they pulled together were just perfect for this time of year!  I love how they chose his shirts to coordinate with the dominant color in her outfit. This allowed them to look put-together and to coordinate without looking like copies of each other. It can be surprisingly complex for a family to select wardrobe options for portraits, let’s face it, we don’t usually get up in the morning and coordinate the day’s clothing based on the whole family’s color choices, right?  That’s why we offer hands on assistance with selecting your outfits for your portraits!

One of the things I really like about this session is the weather.  Maryland weather can be so very changeable, especially because of how near to the shore we are.  On this particular day it had been drizzling a half hour before their scheduled session time. Everyone was quite worried that the lack of sun would make for some really poor pictures – which is a very common thought!  I always assure clients that a professional knows how to work in all conditions and that an overcast day is actually beautiful!  Have you ever noticed how saturated and brilliant the colors are after a rain storm?  That’s the perfect time to head outdoors for portraits!

Enjoy some of our favorites from this gorgeous Fall maternity portrait session!
