Austin Photo Spot: Zilker Botanical Gardens

I’ve recently done several shoots at the Botanical Gardens here in Austin, Texas, all of which were portrait sessions and outside of the $50.00 photographer charge, which is steep considering the other great spots in Austin, I highly recommend utilizing this hidden oasis in the middle of Austin. The scenery is diverse and yet consistent at the same time, offering you multiple different backdrops ranging from foliage and pagodas, to the Austin skyline.

Considering that the portraits I recently shot there were in fact maternity portraits with a woman who happened to be 39 weeks pregnant no less, that brings up a major draw back of the botanical gardens for shooting either young children or maternity photography sessions there: it is in fact very hilly and windy and will easily tire your clients if you choose to walk the entirety of the grounds like we did. But of course the end result definitely justified the walk and numerous braxton hicks contractions my client had along the way!
