When planning a family photo session one thing that you need to consider is the location. Living in the Rio Grande Valley we all know it’s extremely hot and sunny so when discussing the photo shoot with my clients I always show them locations that have both indoor and outdoor areas to shoot in. Now, most of the places are going to charge you to use them so you have to prepare for that as well. I have a rule with my clients; if the location is $100 and below I will pay for it, but if it’s more than $100 I asks the client to split the cost with me. I already have a location fee built into my premium portrait packages just in case we do shoot at a place that charges you to use it.
For this particular family photo session we used the very popular Memory Lane Photo Spot located in Mission, Texas. I love this place for family photos because it has both indoor and outdoor variety and the owners are super nice! The place is a one-hundred year old home with lots of character and well decorated. The inside has a beautiful wood finish with a staircase, a piano, and very nice furniture. The outdoors is lush with beautiful landscaping and rustic settings. I have used Memory Lane Photo Spot for all kinds of photos shoots including bridal, engagements, maternity, etc. Here are my favorite outdoor shots of the Zavala Family at Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas.
