Austin Family Photography
Austin family photographers Nate Hall and Becky Abbott offer a personalized family portrait experience, capturing natural poses and candid moments to create vibrant portraits that your family can cherish for decades to come. Trained in studio and outdoor portraiture, they offer a limited number of outdoor family portrait sessions in the fall and spring and also book studio portrait sessions year-round, plus seasonal mini sessions. Whether you want photos of the whole family or wish to document a special milestone in your child’s life with adorable kid portraits, Nate and Becky will work with you to plan the perfect portrait session. They’re not afraid to sing songs and make silly faces to help kids laugh and feel more comfortable during photo shoots. And after every kid or family portrait session, they spend time carefully selecting and editing the best shots so that families can remember the smiles and precious moments forever. Let us focus on the photography, so you can focus on making memories. Questions before you book? Contact us today to learn more about our Austin family photography services.
Scheduling a kid or family portrait session is easy!
Your session is booked!
After you’ve booked a family portrait session with Austin family photographers Nate Hall and Becky Abbott, we will arrange a pre-shoot consultation to discuss the nature of the shoot, how you plan to use the photos (e.g., wall art, album prints, etc.), what look/style you like, background/location options, wardrobe suggestions, and to answer any questions you may have. We will continue to be available by phone and email leading up to your photo shoot. These portrait tips will also help you prepare.
When you arrive at our studio or a pre-chosen location on the day of the shoot, we’ll start by giving everyone a few general pointers to help them look their best in the photos. During the shoot, we’ll give guidance on where to sit or stand and move through some basic poses, encouraging your family to interact with one another naturally, so we can capture different posed and candid shots. For studio shoots, we use professional lighting equipment to achieve a range of looks — from dark and dramatic to light and breezy, whatever suits your style — while for outdoor shoots, we use a combination of natural light and off-camera flash so that your family and the surrounding scene will look amazing! Our goal during family portrait sessions is to help everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, so they can relax and have fun, forgetting the camera is even there. We want your photo shoot to be an enjoyable experience that allows us to capture your family at its best, so you can look back and treasure these memories!
Within 72 hours of your family portrait session, we’ll share a sneak peek of a few of our favorites from your shoot. Then, we’ll carefully select and edit the best 25-30 images, from which you’ll order digital files and prints. You have the choice of scheduling an in-person ordering session, where we’ll review the proof images with you and help you complete the ordering process, or you can opt for a private online gallery and order through there. Our flexible pricing allows you to choose exactly the images you want — you can get the “whole enchilada” or order a la carte. We offer an array of eco-friendly print options, including fine art prints, metal prints and canvas gallery wraps, all of the highest quality.
