Selecting an outdoor portrait location: by Mindy Ravines

First rule of ‘Fight Club’…..oops!

Establishing an outdoor portrait location is the first thing on my ‘to-do’ list. Typically, the family is thinking ‘What will we wear?!?’ I like to determine the best ‘location’ look for the family based on what interests them.  This family knows me & I know them so it’s always easy finding a good fit ‘portrait backdrop wise.’ Monica had a few suggestions too (which I LOVE–I had no idea there’s a South Austin woman who painted her fence with cool Octopi Arms + a spaghetti monster!).  The boys loved it!!

My favorite location was the infamous ‘Hi, How are you?’ wall in Austin, TX. I LOVE the fact that Addison assumed the frog position…the imagination of a child is absolutely priceless! I find moments like that when a child feels comfortable to play & pose himself/herself the most rewarding for me!

Enjoy! XOXO
