Austin Family Mini Sessions – 2022

It’s my favorite time of year…FALL! Football, cooler weather, pumpkin everything, and did I mention FOOTBALL! This crazy summer heat wave is subsiding and that means it’s time for your family photos.

I am super excited about the locations I’ve picked around Austin for you to choose from this year. For my South Austin families I have a date at Circle C Ranch Park, in the Westlake area I’ll be at Common’s Ford Ranch, in East Austin I’ll be back at Sekrit Theater, downtown I have sessions in the Seaholm District, and north of Austin I am SUPER excited to have booked a new wedding venue call Wish Well House in downtown Georgetown.

Mini sessions are a great option for families looking for a shorter session, wanting to update some family photos, or just looking for photos for their holiday cards. Mini sessions a great for families that can warm up to the camera fast and or have booked with me before. Keep in mind that mini sessions are booked back to back with other families so there is only a small window of time we can shoot together. Mini sessions have fewer groupings and more posed photos than full family sessions. Families that are drawn to the lifestyle images and love those in-between shots might prefer to book a full session with me.


Circle C Ranch Park – is a gorgeous park in south Austin with large fields of tall grass, trees, pathways and the perfect sunset. This location is a great option for families of any kind.

Common’s Ford Ranch – This park is tucked away in Westlake. With an old barn, tall grassy fields and beautiful sunset light, this park has a great country feel.

Sekrit Theater – This isn’t much of a secret anymore…a favorite of many clients with it’s greenhouse, black/white floor, and unique grounds.

Seaholm District – A fun urban location with the old City of Austin Power Plant that give off cool industrial vibes, mixed with the cute Butterfly bridge, the Central Library, and Shoal Creek Trail. This location does require a bit of walking.

Downtown Austin venue for mini family photo sessions

Wish Well House (Georgetown) – A new wedding venue that was just built last year in downtown Georgetown. Clean lines, heavy on symmetry. Repetition through organized patterns. Neutral color palette found in nature…is how the Wish Well House describes their design feels. This venue is perfect for any family looking for something a little different that is still cool and modern. Check out more photos on their Insta page.
