,Tips for how to dress your family for fall sessions are a google search away. Plus, since we have a faux fall here in Houston, we have to be strategic with our sweater wearing. Today let’s dive into what to expect from a Texas fall mini session.
If you are new around here you might not have known but 6 years ago I actually ran a High School Senior Photography business right along side my Child and Family photography studio. It was a separate brand that had it’s own Senior style and website. (it’s no longer running now). The problem was, that the Chubby cheek photography side of the business exploded. I had two babies at home and I couldn’t keep up with two brands. One brand had to go.
My Toddlers are Teens Now
There will be a time when…
The weekend trips to Galveston splashing in the waves will be nothing but a distant memory.
The schedule is filled with dinners in the car on the way to practice instead of impromptu barefoot picnics in the backyard.
Their night time routine is late night studying for Pre-Cal instead of bath time snuggles and bed time books.
That sweet sugar voice whispering “mommy” is replaced with one deeper than you imagined and an annoyed “MOM”.
Car keys sit on the counter instead of wilted picked flowers or dirty rock treasures.
The toes that you kissed are slipping into heels on the way to a school dance.
Did you know that I have been capturing family’s on the Texas coast for 14 years? Yall! To say it has changed is an understatement! But let me tell you, it’s just as magical today as it was years ago. And guess what’s even better? A day trip to Galveston is a mere hour drive from most parts of Houston. And, I’m even going to double down here, and tell you that scheduling a family session on said day trip would definitely make you “mom and wife of the year” because beach sessions are effortless fun for all!
What is the best mom hack I could ever share with you as a mom and a family photographer myself?
Book family pics and have fun! If the sound of that sends you into an instant cold sweat then we need to talk, mama. Here is the deal, those little old ladies that told you time would fly by. The country songs filled with lyrics telling you not to blink. It was all the truth! And no matter how much you relish every second, or how much fun you fill their moments with, the only thing that can actually freeze time and core memories, are photographs. Period.
