The H Family - South Congress Austinite Portraits

This blog post represents a lot of firsts. Not only is it the first family shoot to be featured since I switched website hosts, but it is my first post that features my new home - Austin, TX. I could not imagine a better location or a more adorable family for all of these firsts! Click to enlarge images - enjoy this brief look at their shoot!

I met Ashley & Jessica and their kids at Roadhouse Relics to to make use of the famous "Greetings from Austin" mural. The mural was just restored a couple weeks ago - it was crumbling and cracking and underwent a $10,000 restoration to bring it back to pristine condition. The amount of textures and cool backdrops that surround Roadhouse Relics in a one-block radius is amazing - we spent some time canvassing the area before heading to our next location.

We soon headed to South Congress to capture Austin as its best. SoCo was my first introduction to Austin's quirks and has a special place in my heart as being unique to the area. Also, if you haven't noticed yet - check out Jessica' artful outfitting! She did an AMAZING job of coordinating her family's outfits and I just loved the innovative and bold color combo!
