Texas Road Trip Senior Portraits….wait, what?  ABSOLUTELY!  My first session that took me through the backroads of Texas was last year and I am blessed with having TWO like that this year!  Traveling to different locations, truly building a session around a high school senior’s greatest dreams? I LOVE IT!  Speaking of dreams:  HARRY POTTER MAGIC, we just had to for this incredible gal!

Harry Potter Senior Portrait

We started through the streets of old downtown Bryan.  The charm, the textures and colors set a gorgeous stage for Miss A.  College Station Senior Photography

We found this amazingly happy, teal wall that was in the BLAZING sun….what are we to do?  Basically, have a PARTY….glitter, sass and huge grins. <3Bryan College Station Photographer

After heading north from Bryan, we were on the hunt for some gorgeous wild flowers and we found the magical place just north of Hearne, TX.  While I often try to completely avoid road side shooting for safety reasons, this was in an area of low traffic and a very wide shoulder.  The mix of blue bonnets, indian paint brush and golden sun…..breathtaking!

The Woodlands Senior Portrait

After a quick break at Sonic….a total requirement of all good road trips because the have the BEST ICE ever in styrofoam cups that keep it from melting too fast….HEAVEN!  We hit the Aggie Barn….nirvana for all AGGIES, amiright???!!!  It was right at a blazing sunset and seriously, we had to take a moment and simply take it all in.  BEST ROAD TRIP SESSION EVER!

Portrait session timing that is best for YOU!?!  How do you know when you should book your session?  Now, of course, as a photographer anytime is the RIGHT time, but seriously, it is an investment and a lot of time is spent planning and prepping for your family session.  Many of my clients come to me year after year, but others plan for one special session and that is what I am addressing here in this blog post.

You are thinking it is TIME for family portraits, your loving the stage that your family is at and would like to capture it in formal portraits that will last for generations.  How do you plan when to have your family portraits?  Great question.  First to consider:  what style of dress symbolizes your daily the most?  Layers and deep tones?  Or the lightness of pastels, breezy fabrics and sandals.  Many feel better in one particular season vs, the other.  If this is YOU, have the season guide you.  Want ideas for such inspiration?  Click here for a huge resource of wardrobe styling ideas to get your mind churning.

Should you base it around a special occasion or milestone?  Baby’s first steps, special relatives in town or maybe just after your sweet teen has their braces put on or taken off….there are so many reasons that might lend themselves for capturing your family.  There doesn’t need to be a BIG reason, often a small reason can be enough.

And number THREE?  DO NOT wait for everything to be PERFECT on timing?  Why?  Because, when is anything absolutely perfect, nor why should we expect it to be.  The beauty in the chaos, the love is alive and magic between each of you right now….let’s capture it. <3  Now wait, did I just negate the first two tips?  Not at all, sometimes things can be planned and timed optimally, but other times we can panic and freeze when facing a big decision.

A generations portrait of this amazing family was our goal and these guys knocked it right out of the park!  As a photographer in The Woodlands, TX, area I get all sorts of inquiries and session requests.  This was a first for me and I will be honest, capturing 4 guys can be quite a task.  Guys of most any age are not typically the first ones to jump at the chance to have their picture taken, let alone a portrait session, right?!?  BUT LOOK AT THIS!

Family Generations Portraiture

Generations Portrait in Spring, Texas The Woodlands

Four guys from 6 months to a few (OK, many) more and they are radiating love and joy.  The bonds within the generations of a family are strong, the beauty lies within their connection and you can not fake true joy like this.  What a treasure these images will be for the future….a generation family portrait for them to cherish!

Who was the STAR of the group?  It’s likely quite obvious the little guys has his dad, grandpa and great grafter all wrapped around his tiniest of fingers.  Just gloriously precious and such a keepsake.

Four generations of Family The Woodlands

OK y’all…..this guy stole my heart?  The baby?  Perhaps, but great grandfather MIGHT have been a bigger flirt than the little guy!  His glorious smile seriously made me yearn for days gone by with my own family.  I was not blessed to have even my grandparents around after I was 12, so needless to say I cherish those young memories, but I wish to have had more time with them.  A generations portrait would have been phenomenally special and something that my kids would have likely loved to see for the years to come.
