Family Photos - River Session Edition

Have you heard of River Sessions? If you follow as many photographers as I do, you have probably seen gorgeous family, engagement, maternity photos taken in rivers and creeks, along sandy beaches or under awnings of trees. They're beautiful, fun, and offer a little more adventure than your normal photo session.


If you're willing to let go, be a little wild, and get a little wet, then a River Session may be for you!



My first river session technically took place in a creek. Cibilo Creek runs through the Cibilo Nature Center in Boerne, and is a popular spot for families and photographers alike. My friend and her two sons met me at there at 8 in the morning, before the crowds of people showed up (around 9:30 am). It was quiet and still and morning sun spilled through the trees. It was everything I could hope for and more!


Family Photos in a River? Yes, Please!


What better way to take your family photos mid-summer in Texas than to have them take place wading in a river or a creek? Not only do you get to stay cool by dipping your toes in the water, but the backdrop is magical! Plus, I want your session to be about more than just updating your family photo. I want it to be an experience, a time to make memories.


River Sessions allows for your family to spend some quality time together in the outdoors. Your family can only dip your toes in or jump in all the way! It's up to you! My friend's boys could not wait to get in and swim (well one took some convincing, but once he was more awake he was very excited!). I hope it was a time they'll remember and look back
