Ryan and Kori’s Home Mini Session | Austin and Cedar Park Portrait Photography

I met this great couple through Team Hurst Realty…they have recently purchased their first home! We did a mini session one evening with their furry babies, as well a few of just Mom and Dad. =)

It’s so fun to family portraits at home. It’s the most personal you get, and there is something special about being invited into someone’s space. Some of my clients have specifically directed me to certain areas, because “it’s my favorite place to hang out,” or they did some unique remodeling and want to show it off. These are great things to consider when scheduling a portrait session at home. Thanks for having me over, Ryan and Kori!

Fall Mini Sessions | Austin Portrait Photography

Since Blake and Aline officially tied the knot last September, the next natural step to take (photographically-speaking) is to do fall family portraits for Christmas cards! We met at Brushy Creek Park, a popular place for family portrait photography. Isaac, you were so awesome! I love this kid. He instructed us all at the beginning: “Blake, smile more. Mom, smile less.” We laughed so hard.

Mini sessions are only $250 plus tax, and get you 5 digital files of your choice, plus a free 8×10 print of your favorite one! I’m booking October 14 and 21 at Brushy Creek Park. Sessions are short (30 minutes) and sweet! Take this opportunity not only to rock your Christmas card, but also to have a beautiful, timeless image of your family in your home.

Krystal and Tony’s Engagement Session | San Antonio Wedding Photographer

Krystal and Tony’s wedding is right around the corner, and I cannot WAIT. I don’t want to call them over achievers, but she’s wrapping up dental school and job-hunting while he’s a busy accountant, and it was a little bit of miracle to reschedule their engagement session due to rain. But we did it!! And I am thrilled. Flexibility is always key when planning a wedding, and especially during the day of your wedding. They totally trusted me to wait a couple of days for better weather, which means better lighting, which means better portraits! Hardberger Park is a terrific, terrific place for portraits, especially at “the golden hour.” Yes there were tons of people, but it’s a pretty big park, so you can always find space that looks like you’re the only ones there.

I freaked out when they arrived because I loved Krystal’s dress so much. Wow! She is originally from Liberia, and her dad had gotten her this custom-made dress with African fabric. Where can I get one?! It was so bright and colorful. And it set off her yellow diamond engagement so well! I love how unique her ring is. Tony hails from the city of Brotherly Love, and all I can say is, I am definitely throwin’ down on the dance floor when “Motown Philly” plays.

I knew their pictures would be amazing. My only instruction to them was to focus on each other and enjoy this time together. If you want magical portraits, then don’t think about where to stand or what to do with your hands–I’ll tell you! Instead, focus on that person in front of you who’s inspired you to risk everything and settle down once and for all, for keeps! They laughed and did exactly that. Boom! Wedding day, here we come!

Kat and Nate’s Home Family Portrait Session | Austin Family Portrait Photographer

Kat and Nate are the sweetest couple! We met for a family portrait session at their home with their darling two kiddos. Morning light worked best for this family as their house faced the setting sun. We had a blast just kicking around in the front yard, letting the kids be kids. The baby was super interested in flowers while big brother was happy to do his best “Hulk” impersonation. We made sure to do some silly faces, too! I met Kat and Nate through Team Hurst Realty Group; the dynamic duo of Travis and Rachel Hurst. They helped us buy our home in Cedar Park, and did a great job helping Kat and Nate, too! Interested in a home family portrait session? Contact the studio today!
