A young lady I know just had a birthday and I was lucky enough to be asked to take some birthday portraits.
For this type of photo I like to get started as early as possible. 6-7am. Basically, anytime right before/after the sun rises.
This session happened on a Sunday morning, with nearly zero traffic around. Weekday mornings can work as well. Nearly every shoot is worth having an assistant come along. While they normally act as an extra set of hands, in this case, they’re primarily there to watch in every other direction than the one I’m facing.
I got so lucky that the little birthday girl was in a great mood, not to mention hilarious, and came with a pair of eager and helpful parents in tow.
I thought it would be fun to take a few shots on the empty sidewalks along South Congress.
And of course, we had to stop and admire all of the goodies at the confectionary shop.
Thanks to all of the rain this spring, Austin feels especially vibrant and green this summer. We wanted to try and capture some of that feeling.
We didn’t have to go far.
It’s always nice to take a little break and admire the scenery.
And there’s always time for bubbles.
Happy Birthday Makayla!
