This is an oldie but goodie. I shot this family portrait back in 2011 when Hat Creek Photography was just learning to walk! Not literally of course. My good friends the Lyons’ family and I went out to the Zilker Botanical Gardens here in Austin, Texas and had no intentions of doing any portraits, but due to some well timed cooperation from their son Ben we fired off some shots and got some lovely candid styled family portraits!
I’ve mentioned it before but I’ll go ahead and say it again: If you haven’t been out to the Botanical Gardens in Austin, AND you don’t mind spending $50 for a professional shoot, assuming you do things on the up and up, then I highly recommend using the Botanical Gardens. You can walk the grounds at a leisurely pace and get plenty of quality backdrops. Of course, if you’re just shooting for fun the Botanical Gardens don’t require you to register as a professional photographer and thus skipping the $50.
