1st Annual Mini Sessions | 2017 | Mayfield Park | Austin Wedding Photographer

MINI SESSIONS were a hit this past Saturday, September 23rd!

1st Annual Mini Sessions at Mayfield Park – Austin, Texas – September 2017

Last weekend I held my first annual mini session event at Mayfield Park. This was a single day event, and clients (both new, and returning!) were able to choose a time slot and book a 20 minute session. Each client received 10 images in an online gallery (with free download and printing rights included!), and because there was a limit of 10 photos I tried to make sure that everybody got a good variety of images incase they wanted to do something like this.

It turns out that nobody really wants to do their family portraits in the middle of the day, while the lighting is harsh and the sun is hot (duh), but my morning and afternoon/evening sessions were completely booked up! (plus ONE daring middle-of-the-day couple haha).

Missed This Year’s Mini Sessions?

I have big plans for NEXT YEAR’S mini sessions!

2018’s mini sessions will be Christmas Card sessions (non-themed), and will happen sometime in late November, after Thanksgiving. I will announce the date for these on my Facebook Page sometime in the summer, and then in early fall I will create a Facebook event with details/location/available times and officially open up booking.

This time, there will be morning and evening sessions ONLY, but there will be WAY MORE OF THEM!!

Follow me on Facebook so that you don’t miss the announcement! 🙂

Mini sessions are great for a quick and easy update of your family portraits, or for kids that don’t have the best attention spans. But keep in mind that these types of sessions are very limited in many ways, and not able to be as in-depth as a full portrait session.

Austin Family Photography

While I specialize in wedding photography, I do offer portrait sessions with families and children, high school/college seniors, etc. A typical portrait session takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour, and produces roughly 50 final images so that you have plenty to choose from to display in your home, in an album, or however you decide to use them!

For more information and pricing for portrait sessions, you can see my portraiture pricing here, and feel free to contact me about any questions, or if you are interested in something that you don’t see listed!

My kids! | Children Photoshoot at Purgatory Creek Park | San Marcos | Austin Photographer

Today I decided I wanted to get out and finally do my own real, outdoors, dressed up photoshoot of my kids for the first time since my son was born. I was impatient and did this at 1 in the afternoon instead of waiting until the evening light, but that’s what shady trees are for, right!?

I realized that I didn’t have anything nice for my 7 month old to wear for the photos, so we took a quick trip to Target first. Big sister ofcourse wanted a new outfit since the baby man was getting one…so $40 and one chaotic wardrobe change in the car, and we were ready for our little photoshoot!

I needed to keep it simple, shady, and easy to access, so we just went down the street from our apartment to Purgatory Creek Park in San Marcos, and used the grassy area out by the parking lot. My daughter was hot and cranky, my baby boy needed a nap, and I really could’ve used another adult with me to help get them looking at the camera…

LUCKILY, I managed to get about 12 good shots in the 10 (or less) minutes that we managed to last hahaha… Here are my faves!:

While I do specialize in weddings and couples, I love to sprinkle some family and children’s portraits in to my schedule as much as I can!
