Happy Fall, everyone! This past weekend was the official beginning of Autumn, and we definitely welcomed it in central Texas. A 15-to-20-degree drop in temperature is always appreciated after summer! I’ll be sending out an e-newsletter soon, recapping summer events and dates and times for fall family portrait sessions! Yes, that time is upon us. I’ve barely gotten used to the sounds of football in the background on Sunday afternoons and the return of pumpkin spice everything at HEB.
My good friend Kristi, co-owner of Eclipse Event Co. had all of her family members in town, so we carpe diemed and seized the moment for family portraits in Pflugerville. Heritage Park is a beautiful little green space in Pflugerville, sporting not only an adorable red barn (called the “Green Red Barn,” as it is a state-recognized renewable energy project), but also a historical home-turned museum. There are several terrific areas for portrait photography, which I present to you here for reference. Kristi’s family assembled about eleven o’clock in the morning, which you might think isn’t great for portraits. However, there are great options in shade that still afford great lighting. We piled everyone on the front porch of the Heritage House Museum for nice, clean, bright portraits. Kristi’s kids, ages four and “crawling,” were easily captured on the wide wrap around porch.
Whether a large group or just two or three, between the Heritage House Museum, an attractive white gazebo to its side or the barn farther down the park, it’s whatever you like for your backdrop. We enjoyed getting portraits of grandmas with the new baby, as well as a generational portrait of the ladies (always my favorite) and ending with Kristi and her hubby, Dan and the kiddos. Have a great week!
