Your chance to wear your cosiest sweaters

Autumn is a season filled with rich, warm colours and the crisp, fresh air that makes for stunning horse photography. But what should you wear to make the most of your session with your equine friend? In this guide, we'll cover everything from clothing style and colour to the accessories that will help you and your horse stand out.

Weather Considerations

The autumn months can be unpredictable, with temperatures that can swing from summer warmth to a chilly breeze. To ensure that you're comfortable during your photo shoot, it's wise to be prepared:

  • Layering: Consider wearing layers that can be easily added or removed. A light summer dress can be paired with a cosy, oversized, knitted sweater, giving you flexibility and style.
  • Rescheduling: If the weather turns sour, don't worry! I'm always happy to reschedule and ensure that we find a date that suits you best.

Style Guide: Keep It Cosy

Autumn calls for comfy and cosy clothing. Think soft, flowing fabrics and textures that evoke a sense of warmth and comfort.

  • Sweaters and Cardigans: Chunky knits and soft cardigans can add texture and interest to your photos.
  • Boots: Knee-high boots or stylish ankle boots can complete your autumn look.

Colour Palette: Embrace Autumn's Hues

The colours of autumn are some of the most photogenic, ranging from strong yellows to bright reds. When selecting your outfit, you have two main options:

  • Complementary Colours: Choose blues, teals, and greens to contrast with the autumn background.
  • Monochrome Scale: Embrace the season by wearing reds, oranges, and yellows, matching with the natural surroundings.

Accessories: The Finishing Touches

Autumn is the perfect season to flaunt some of your favourite accessories:

  • Hats: From stylish fedoras to casual beanies, hats can add a unique touch to your ensemble.
  • Scarves and Gloves: Warm scarves and gloves not only keep you comfortable but also add a chic flair.
  • Jewellery: Simple and elegant jewellery can accentuate your look without overshadowing your horse.

Dressing for your autumn equine photo shoot is about balancing comfort, style, and colour. By planning your outfit around the season's natural beauty and being prepared for unpredictable weather, you'll ensure a memorable and enjoyable photo shoot experience. Remember, these tips are just a starting point; your personal style and the unique connection with your horse are what will truly make the photos special.
