Top 4 Reasons For Fall Senior Pictures | Norman Senior Photographer

September 6, 2022

Are YOU ready to transition into fall or are you hanging on to the summer? Fall is my FAVORITE season and I’m so ready for cooler weather! Another reason I love fall so much is because it’s the PERFECT senior session weather! Not too hot and not too cold!

Summer, spring and winter pictures are all beautiful in their own unique ways, but let’s take a look at the top reasons to have your senior photos taken in the fall!

  1. WEATHER: For high school seniors who do not like really hot temperatures or really cold temperatures, fall is the perfect season to get you senior photos taken. Late September-late November usually has cooler temperatures, but we aren’t quite to the cold of winter yet. As we all know though, living in Oklahoma, the weather can change in an instant! In the fall you can have a great variety in your outfits. It’s still warm enough for fun dresses, but cool enough to wear cute sweaters and jeans too. You won’t have to worry about sweating from heat or a red nose from the cold…it’s just right!
  2. FALL COLORS: The warm earthly tones of fall make a stunning background for your senior pictures. Leaves in orange, red, yellow, and even some browns make beautiful senior photos. I can never guarantee the dates for fall leaves, as it can change slightly from year to year and one windy day can blow all the leaves off the branches. My best suggestion though, would be to book your senior session the last week of October through the first 2 weeks of November if having colorful trees is a goal for you. Even if you don’t schedule during that time frame, fall is still such a pretty time of year. Neutral, earthy grass, soft golden light (more on that in the next point!), wildflowers are all awesome touches to fall senior portraits.
  3. GOLDEN HOUR LIGHT: Golden hour happens every day of the year, but there is just something extra special about it during the fall. It matches perfectly with the golden tones of fall and it makes photos so soft and beautiful! There is just a different kind of beauty during golden hour in the fall.
  4. FASHION: if boots, scarves and jackets are your thing, a fall senior session is your perfect option. Layers make an outfit super dynamic and the season for a perfectly layered wardrobe is definitely the fall. Remember that if you shoot in early fall, you can still wear transitional pieces like short dresses and shorts since it won’t be too cool for those types of outfits.

Fall Senior Pictures in Oklahoma City

This ivy covered wall in downtown Oklahoma City is one of my absolute favorite spots to photograph senior pictures during the fall! The colors are stunning! Also, these images were only taken a week apart and notice the completely different clothing choices. A cute dress or jeans and sweater are both great choices for this weather and this location.

Look at all the different tree color possibilities in the fall! Bright red/almost pink, yellow, orange, even a little green still in there!

Another example of the variety of outfits you can wear! Paige mixed it up with sweaters, a long sleeve dress, an off the should dress, funky printed pants, and jeans!

Downtown OKC Fall Senior Photos

The city streets/urban settings still feel fall without the fall nature colors! It’s all about what you wear if you want your fall senior pictures in the city!

Even if you choose later in the fall after all the leaves have fallen, look how gorgeous it can still be! You still have the rich tones, the grass is usually taller (which I love!), and the sunset is still perfection!
