You can prepare all you want for your Bull Creek family photo session. From the timing and location to the outfits and props. But you just can’t prepare for when the star of the show has growing pains. In this case, sweet baby Delilah woke up with a fever the morning of our session. It was so bad that this family contemplated canceling the photos altogether.
However, after speaking with a local pediatrician, all was fine and normal. Delilah suffered from teething. With some rest, extra love and attention, and medication, everyone was ready to go for our Bull Creek family photo session!
Which was especially great in this case. For one, this family is visiting their relatives in Austin and were heading back to Michigan shortly after.
Secondly, if you’re a parent, or been around children, you know how quickly they grow! So it’s so important to document all stages of their youth and we wanted to make sure to document this time in her life!
Bull Creek Family Photo Session
You may remember Susan from her Zilker botanical gardens engagement session. Well, with her mother, brother, sister-in-law, and niece visiting from Michigan for the holidays, she knew it was the perfect time to get everyone together for their first formal family session.
And why not show off a bit of Austin while you’re family is in town? If you haven’t been to Bull Creek District Park, it’s a must-see! Between the picturesque scenery, clear water that you can swim in, and hiking paths, it’s worth visiting.
And definitely one of my favorite places to photograph any and all kinds of sessions!
Happy Holidays from the Markose Family
Despite her mouth bothering her and meeting this stranger (me) for the first time, we managed to squeeze a few smiles out of Delilah!
With her aunt Susan:
Lack of smiles often means we need some play time!
The Markose ladies:
How cute is Delilah’s outfit?! And her little booties are 😍
There’s nothing quite like a mother’s love …
Or grandmother’s love in this case …
Taking a quick break to cool off and play in the water:
And that’s a wrap! Thank you to this lovely family for celebrating the holidays with me!
