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!:

A quick post to share this family mini session from last evening, at the Purgatory Creek Natural Area in San, Marcos! We ran into some trouble when I took them down the trail and were caught in swarms of mosquitos…EVERYWHERE.  I am covered in bites today.  But atleast we got some good shots, and I learned to stay away from that part of the trail during mosquito season!_DSC1996 Untitled-1 _DSC1945 _DSC1963

I’m so excited about this mini session from today!!

This was my first session in San Marcos, since I moved here from Austin last month.  We met at the Purgatory Creek Natural Area and the lighting couldn’t have been more perfect.  I loved Harley’s choices in wardrobe and colors, and the way the magenta stood out against the greenery.

William did so well smiling and cooperating for our quick 15-minute shoot, I was impressed by his direction-taking skills!
