The location of your portrait session is completely up to you! As you’ll see throughout our featured portrait sessions, most of our clients love showcasing the natural beauty of the Greater Houston area. For most of my sessions, outdoor, open-air environments are always my first choice. I love shooting in wide-open natural spaces because the light is divine, especially during golden hour. There are great options all around Houston, so even if you’ve never seen me photograph in a specific place before, I’m always up for exploring a new spot together!
Think Outside the Box
When it comes to choosing a location, don’t be afraid to think outside the box! I encourage you to brainstorm unique places that you might have special access to that most people don’t. For example, maybe you (or someone you know) have access to an amazing location that would otherwise be off-limits, like a beautiful private estate, family ranch, exclusive country club or luxury resort. Spend a few minutes thinking about it and checking around with people in your personal and professional network. You’ll be surprised with what you come up with! If something seems out of reach, just remember: you never know until you ask! You can also consider Airbnb or other property rental sites. In the past, my clients have secured permission to shoot in some pretty incredible places!
If you need some location ideas and inspiration, I have plenty! Check out my Instagram and the featured portrait sessions of my blog. If there’s a certain session you really love, just let me know which one and we can go to that location!
