After moving all around and finallyyyy making my way back to Austin, it’s only appropriate that this would be the first family I photograph! One of my very best friends, and as a result, one of Savvy Images’ very first clients. I am beyond blessed to have fun friends who whole heartedly support me and what I love doing!! I’ve photographed their cute family from the announcement of their first little Lover, for their first maternity photo session, as well as both of their newborn sessions (you can check their first one here).
Most anyone could assume that photographing little kids definitely keeps you on your toes. But my favorite thing about it, is bringing out their fun *big* LITTLE personalities. And these two, most certainly have those, without a doubt! LOL
We decided to do their photos at Brushy Creek Park. Being new to the area again, I was a bit nervous photographing them there because I hear it can get extremely busy (and even hostile) in the fall. I was actually friends with the only other photographer we ran into! It was so nice to hug her neck after several years. I look forward to rebuilding my little photography network, as well as my list of photoshoot locations here in Austin.
And of course, we had a capture Mom and Dad putting out the vibe. ;-) I was pumped when even Dad agreed that their photo session was a painless as it could be. I mean… what dad like to get all snazzed up to herd cats (umm, I mean kids) into taking family photos in a perfectly overgrown field?!
The week before their photo session, I helped style their outfits. This is a service I offer all Savvy Images clients during their pre session consultation call. Mom had an idea of what she wanted, including several options to choose from and I helped piece and coordinate it all together. I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised how well they unintentionally coordinated with the field we chose! ;-) And the perfect golden hour light, was the icing on their perfect portrait cake.
A great deal of thought and planning goes into a successful family photo session. Therefore, I always provide my families with all the information I can, to set them up for success.
If you know these two well, then you know the sass and silliness I had to embrace. So. Much. Fun. I loved every single moment. I am so excited to reunite with old clients and get back to photographing fun families here in Austin!
