Austin Family Photographer for the S Family


Sweetest opportunity ever: to get to be Austin family photographer for friends.

Erica got in touch with me because her parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this year. Fifty years, you guys! That’s an impressively long time to be together. I think they’re too cute! We had a great time which is impressive considering how early we had them meet us at a local park. Pretty much the sweetest thing to get to document this many generations in one photo shoot.

It was a blast to get to do these with Jesse by my side! We both enjoyed working with all the S. family members and getting behind-the-scenes little snippets of Lola and Makayla’s interaction. The cousins are way too cute together! And do you not just love the flower crowns by Chelsey made? I mean, ChelseyMade! She’s so creative, I love it and can’t help but want to plug her Etsy shop.

We did so many group shots of each family and couple but we wanted to share some of our favorites.

I think real, lovely photographs are a great way to celebrate a significant milestone, don’t you? Too precious! Oftentimes, mom or dad are often the ones behind the camera so there’s not that many images to remember them by. A session with the entire family is a great way to make sure you all have real, lovely images of everyone together. Let’s make it happen!
