The BEST Locations for SUMMER Portraits!

You only have 18 Summers with your children before everything changes. 

Don't let another summer pass without documenting your family's journey through a perfectly crafted portrait. Allow me to help you design and create a stunning portrait that will stand the test of time.

When I think about Summer, I think about that scorching Texas heat and what better location to photograph than being near the water.

These 3 locations look amazing during the summer months and provide the ideal backdrop for a casual and genuine family portrait:

The Lake   |    The River    |    The Beach

 I tend to photograph these locations either at sunrise or sunset when the sun isn't blazing onto you and the temperatures are a little cooler. During your complimentary design consultation, we will discuss what works best for your family and discuss all of the details of your family's unique personality.

Top Reasons to Have Your Portraits Made in the Summer:

1. Capture the Joy of Free Time: When the school bells stop ringing, and the children are finally free from their busy schedules, summer becomes a treasure trove of precious moments. Embrace the carefree spirit of the season and let Artistic Images capture the authentic joy and laughter that comes with unstructured summer days.

2. Preserve the Memories of Family Adventures: Summer is synonymous with family vacations and adventures. Whether you're building sandcastles on the beach or exploring breathtaking destinations, these shared experiences create lasting memories. Let Artistic Images freeze those magical moments into stunning portraits that will transport you back to those cherished family adventures for years to come.

3. Relaxed and Radiant: Summer brings a natural radiance that enhances your family's portraits. The warm sun-kissed glow, vibrant colors, and relaxed vibes create an ideal backdrop for capturing the essence of your loved ones. Our skilled photographer, Elizabeth, knows how to harness the magic of summer to create portraits that reflect the authentic beauty and connection within your family.

4. Embrace the Outdoors: Summer opens the door to endless possibilities for outdoor portrait sessions. From blooming gardens to golden sunsets, nature becomes a breathtaking canvas that enhances the beauty of your portraits. Let Artistic Images guide you on an outdoor adventure, where your family can be immersed in nature's splendor while Elizabeth skillfully captures the love and togetherness you share.

5. Timeless Keepsakes: Summer portraits become cherished keepsakes, reminding you of the precious moments spent together as a family. Whether displayed proudly on your walls or tucked away in an heirloom album, these portraits will serve as a constant reminder of the love, laughter, and adventures you shared during those glorious summer days.

6. Limited Summer Openings: Summer, with it's sun-kissed adventures and carefree vibes has a way of  disappearing in the blink of an eye.

It's time to book you BEACH Portrait Session!

 We are heading to the BEACH and we have TWO DATE OPTIONS!

SPRING.....April 15-16, 2023


SUMMER....July 14-16, 2023 

We have been doing beach portraits EVERY year for the past 28 years and we MUST getaway, stick our toes in the sand and feel the ocean breeze. We know so many who feel the same way so Join us this year.

SUNRISE OR SUNSET?  My preference is Sunrise (less people on the beach and the sun rises over the water), but Sunset is possible too if you just aren't a morning person. It all begins with a PLANNING SESSION. Let's get yours scheduled today!

Darlene + Charles.....November 12, 2022


November 12, 2022

It was a beautiful, sunny and chilly November day in San Antonio, and it couldn't have been more perfect for this beautiful couple. 

The venue was the gorgeous Hotel Emma, with it's location right along the river in the Pearl Historic District. So many photo opportunities with this gorgeous couple and their stunning wedding party....too many to share, but here is a little taste of the wedding day and some of my absolute favorite images.

Venue: Hotel Emma

Ceremony: St. Mary's Catholic Church

Flowers: Trinity Flowers

Wedding Planner: Sweet August Events

Let's start with a few images from Darlene's Bridal Portrait session. This beautiful location is called Dunvegan Keep in south Austin and it was truly showing off with all the flowers blooming. Darlene's very unique dress is the perfect accompaniment to this fairytale location. 

Darlene also had a second dress for the reception that we photographed as well. Both dresses were very different yet suited her perfectly!
