lifestyle photography in austin texas
Here it is... my first blog post. Let's jump right in!
If you live in Austin, you know this weekend was full of rain. But boy, do we need it! So what do you do when the weather is gross? Pick up your camera and go shoot! (Trust me, I had to drag myself away from my couch, pups, and Netflix).
I decided on a local coffee shop, Halcyon, for our photoshoot location. It's one of my favorite coffee shops in Austin, as the environment is super cute, and it offers an assortment of coffee, wine, beer, and food! There is something for absolutely everyone.
The second we sat down, it started down pouring. So of course the place was full of people (which isn't always my favorite thing), but we worked with it. We didn’t get too many weird looks and there wasn’t anyone in the back of my shots, which was all I could ask for!
We took a spot by the window, watched the rain delicately fall - and caught the best lighting!
One of my favorite things about shooting during cloudy/rainy days is that the lighting is PURE MAGIC (and a couple hours before sunset is also known as golden hour). Once it finally stopped raining we went outside to shoot some more. There was a soft glow in the sky that lingered and shimmered off of the skin like honey.
I know it sounds all rainbows and unicorns, but the fact is, it was legit raining on us and I was freaking out because my camera was getting wet! This was my first time shooting in the rain, I didn’t bring a bag and my lens was fogging up. Honestly, I had a lot of things working against me, but I made it work.
Look at these amazing shots! I'm loving how the streets have that shimmer and there's a dewey haze everywhere.
This was such a fun shoot! I’m looking forward to doing more lifestyle photography sessions in the future.
