the way it unfolds, a session with angela doran {austin lifestyle photographer}

If you've never booked a session with me, I'd love to give you a feel for how they unfold, while also sharing one of the many beautiful families that just get me and allow me to create with them. 

First, I'll ask what area you live in, so that I can scout accordingly. I really don't like to add the stress of having to travel across town if I don't have to. There are many, many amazing locations to shoot at. Some are obvious...and some, are on the side of I-35, in front of the Tractor Supply. (as pictured in this blog post.) I'm ALWAYS looking. :) I walk around with my compass, so I know where the light will be, and I make sure it is a safe place for my families.

Then, it's session day! I'll meet you and we'll walk together to our spot. We will most likely start in some sort of traditional pose. I'll snap some photos, I'll talk to your kids, and then I'll start moving around.

I'll keep talking, acting a little silly, and I'll keep moving. I may ask certain family members to love on each other. I'll get close, and then I'll go far. 

And then, we'll need to change it up! Especially if you have young children. I don't like to do one thing for too long. Depending on the location, this could mean, walking somewhere else, or simply changing what we are doing. 

Then, I'll start to break it up, giving other family members a quick break, while capturing different combinations of family! During this movement, I usually capture some of my favorite moments of your session. 

And usually, by this time, everyone has relaxed and things are unfolding quite nicely, which enables me to really SEE you. The way you love your people. And that, is exactly what I want to capture. Side note, I'm probably full-on acting a fool at this point: barking like a dog, running around being silly. ;)

And then, we'll wrap it up! Thank you to the gorgeous families that let me in, that put their trust in me and let me see your gorgeous love.
