Wonder Woman Carsyn – Halloween Portrait Session

Thanks to the location scouting here and here – we went back downtown for this costumed portrait session. Whether lassoing on rooftops or charging ahead for justice, this Wonder Woman shoot was full of fun.

Please enjoy this sneak peek of her Halloween Portrait session. To see all the photos and purchase prints from her session click HERE.

Max & Miles – The Long Center

After our Batman Goes Downtown location scouting, the boys got to enjoy their reward (bribe) of lollipops at the Long Center. Climbing stairs + rolling down hills led to a good splashing off in the Butler Park fountain (good thing we always travel with spare clothes in the car).

Heather Gandy - Incredible photos. I can’t wait to see Carsyn AKA Wonder Woman out there saving her city!

Kristen Cory - Hello Stephanie, I am a student at ASU and am a huge fan of your work. Photography is my second life and I like to look around and follow different blogs that can help me expand my photography knowledge and expertise. I have two young children, boy and a girl, and I absolutely adore the shoots you do with yours. Any tips for preparation and timing, as well as keeping kids upbeat and entertained?

Batman Goes Downtown – Location Scouting

“Do you know of a good spot where we could take Halloween photos when my daughter dresses up like Wonder Woman this year?”

(so glad you asked)

This past weekend, I took my own superhero downtown to visit three spots: Seaholm Power Plant, Austin City Hall and the Long Center.

If you are wanting your own urban backdrop, I recommend all three.

Mueller Austin – Location Scouting

Trying to decide where to have your family photo session take place? Austin has lots of wonderful urban and natural settings – but if you want one that combines both – try the Mueller Development. There’s a new colorful walkway of umbrellas, loads of brightly painted walls as well as a scenic pond lined by trees.
