What’s better than this Dripping Springs family session? Oh, I don’t know! Maybe spending time with the coolest family in Texas!
Molly is the founder, owner, and artist of Molly Makeup and Hair. I first met her when she styled my hair for my very first Texas photoshoot. We connected immediately! I absolutely love her laid-back personality and how welcoming and warm she is. Let’s not to mention how talented she is as both a hairstylist and makeup artist!
Dripping Springs Family Session
After working with Molly, we continued to keep in touch. We were even lucky to have the opportunity to work together on a styled shoot together (click here to see more of that) when she made a comment about scheduling her Dripping Springs family session with me.
She shared pictures of her kids with me and can I just say, she has one beautiful family! So of course I couldn’t wait to meet them!
It’s Go Time
When they first arrived onsite, I was already immediately taken with Molly’s children. Of course, being the kids of a makeup and hair artist, their styles were on point!
But that’s not what got me: it was how calm and polite they are. Most of the time, family sessions tend to be chaotic. This is understandable as parents are trying to get ready, kids have a tendency to not focus, and usually at least one person is ‘hangry’ haha! I expect this. What I didn’t expect was how chill everyone was!
Not only that, but they quickly warmed up to me and were ready and willing to have their pictures taken. Any of you who have children and tried to have your photos taken know this is not usually the case! 😂
So we walked over to the site Molly had picked out for us and had a great time!
Phoenix, her son, ran out of steam pretty quickly but with count-downs and a little bit of bribery, we got it done!
As a reward, we promised Skylar and Phoenix that they could have some free time on the playground. I always recommend allowing children to be children towards the end of our sessions. This allows me to capture their true personalities and them in their elements.
And so our session ended with the biggest smiles! Also with the promise of ice cream from their favorite place. I’d say it was a very successful Dripping Springs family session!
