I had the best time with lovely Kimbell on this lifestyle, portrait shoot. We chose Zilker Park because of its versatility offering both an urban and park setting. Kimbell wore a gorgeous burgundy dress that was the perfect choice to create this airy, woodlands feel.
A few things to keep in mind when prepping for your shoot:
1) Wear something that makes you feel like YOU. It's important to pick an outfit that is your style and you feel comfortable in. Keep your location in mind - if it's a park, you might consider a pop of color or a pattern to add a dynamic element. If the shoot is in a downtown area, you might consider neutrals or solids to not compete with the surrounding signs, lights and urban culture. I love consulting on outfits, so don't hesitate to reach out before you shoot and we can brainstorm.
2) Consider bringing a prop! I always love when clients bring props like Kimbell's sunflower crown. Is there something meaningful to you or your family? My husband and I brought a canoe to our engagement photos, because our first official date was boating on the same lake. Every time I walk by those photos in our house, it takes me back to our beginnings.
