However, just because it’s absolutely beautiful outside doesn’t mean that it’s easy to pick what you’re wearing for your session! If you’re like me, getting ready on any typical day takes several outfit changes and options. I know that selecting outfits for you senior session can feel like a monster – it’s suppose to be so much fun, but it just becomes SO overwhelming!

A fluffy Patagonia with flannel – such a perfect fall combo! Flannels are the EASIEST way to give a fall vibe to any outfit! You don’t even have to button them up – leave them open with a graphic tee or even tie around your waist! So many options!

Okay, so this is actually from a family session, but I LOVED their outfits!! Such a cute combo! Mariah (on the left) wore a burgundy corduroy mini skirt paired  with a mustard blouse and jean jacket. Susan (middle) paired a gorgeous flannel blouse with a faux fur vest. I love how she paired it with some extra bling in her necklace. Mallory  (right) wore a bold burgundy sweater. I love thicker knit as it adds more detail to her images!St. Louis & Southern Illinois Photographer

This rust color is my favorite this fall, and I love how it truly warms up the photo!Southern IL & St. Louis Senior Photographer

Utility jackets are my favorite nearly anytime of the year, but during fall, I’m wearing mine nearly 24/7! So easy to add something extra to your outfit, but still looks classy! Also, a great way to stay warm during your session without putting on a heavy coat!St. Louis & Southern IL Senior Photographer

I’ve been in love with jean jackets for a very long time, and I’m really happy that the rest of the world is back in the “jean jackets are cool” mindset! I think this is another EASY way to stay warm during your session without looking like you’re wearing a coat. It also helps to switch up your outfits during your session without actually  having to change looks!St. Louis & Southern IL Senior Photographer

Mustard is IN! If you haven’t tried this color now is the time! Southern IL & St. Louis Senior Photographer

I love this combo of rust and denim! If you love a more vintage-y vibe – this is such a cute outfit option!

Okay, I had to throw this one in because I love red, and I LOVE this pop of red! It’s such a great pop of color that still feels warm and cozy!Southern IL & St. Louis Senior Photographer

Patterns are always a great option. Just make sure the colors in the pattern still bring that warm fall feeling.

I love this look! I’m all about cardigans and this brighter, apple red cardigan is JUST the perfect amount of color! Layer your cardigan with a plain v-neck to eliminate a busy outfit and pair it with your favorite pair of denim!
