P Family [LIFE] Documentary Session at Home

I have known this amazing family since big brother was born, and have been so lucky to photograph them along each stage of their life together as a family. So, naturally I was totally thrilled when mama reached out to me to schedule a [LIFE] Session. So many of my families that are scheduling [LIFE] Sessions have done the “regular” photo session thing with me before and are looking for something extra special. They want to remember what their life was like right then and there, unscripted and beautiful in all of it’s every day glory.

It doesn’t matter if you think you are “boring” or your life is uneventful, I promise you will cherish every little detail.

W Family at Sekrit Theater | Austin Family Photographer

How magical is this place and how adorable is this family?! They braved out the 100 degree heat to play, laugh and dance with me at Austin’s infamous Sekrit Theater. There are so many cool nooks and crannies to explore. We shot for almost two hours and maybe got to 1/6th of it!

They got me so excited to start seeing all of my fall families. If you need to get your family on my calendar now is the time! Dates are going quickly – give me a shout, I’d love to hear from you!

Laguna Gloria | Austin Family Photographer

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of working with this sweet Cali family! Mom comes into town for work every two years or so and they love to get their photos done in our beautiful city! This time we chose Laguna Gloria for it’s perfect outdoor scenery and beautiful indoor space (had to beat the heat/humidity at the end of the session.) With perfectly coordinated outfits for the location and smiles on their faces…okay, well, 3/4 had smiles on their faces 😉 we had an absolutely delightful family session together!

From mom – “Omg, I am so happy, I can’t even tell you. I can’t believe you made it work so well with my grumpy cute boy. These are just beautiful and amazing, with some hilarious ones at the end! Thank you so much Alissa.”

An Evening Walk | Austin Family Photographer

When mama told me her idea and wants for this session, I was so excited! They live in Lakeway, and mentioned how they all walk down to the dock area in their neighborhood every night together as a family. With their three amazing girls and dog in tow, we headed through their neighborhood. I loved how you can tell distinctly each girls personality through these photos. The littlest – so sweet and mama comfort driven, the middle – spunky, center of attention and dancing her way through life, the oldest –  cool, calm, collected and independent.

Mom and dad also had a super fun surprise for them at the end of the session, though you’ll have to scroll to the end to find out… 🙂
