October 12, 2022

Filed in: Tips

We’re in the thick of fall photo season over here, and that means a LOT of you are pulling together outfits for your family portraits! While I help my clients with this, if you’re shopping on your own I thought I’d share my favorite fall dresses for family photos that stores have in stock TODAY. Like…drive yourself over to Target or Nordstroms, pick one of these up, and boom, you’re practically done with fall photo outfits! No waiting for shipping times. Add some kids clothing for pictures from this list or just dress the rest of the family in easy neutrals and you’re all set.


Nordstrom Fall Dresses for Family Photos

Nordstrom is always a great stop for a few of my favorite photo-ready brands. Free People, Lulu’s, and ASTR the label are my favorites. Their summer stuff is all on a great sale. Summer ivories and whites transfer so well into fall, particularly if you’re planning on a fall field session.

Fall Dresses for Family Photos from Target

While you’re at Target somehow spending a hundred dollars when you just stopped in to pick up hand soap, toss one of these in your cart. I love their subdued colors and subtle patterns. These are perfect for you if you’re dreaming of a more colorful, but still refined, fall photo session.
