Fall is a stunner in the Texas Hill Country! Summer’s dog days begin to tame and the great outdoors reflects that. Rainy days result in another flush of color to the countryside: yellows and a rich variety of greens that make for stunning backdrops.

Oh, and raise your hand if you’re looking forward to the cooler temps of fall! Because there’s that to look forward to.

Why not take the time for family photos? The timing couldn’t be better. Get in touch and we’ll happily make recommendations for locations that are not only gorgeous but fit your family’s vibe. You bring the love, sass and smiles and we’ll work the space and the light. Just don’t wait too long to schedule a session because spots can fill up quickly!

“Mercedes Morgan Photography took our family photos with our three children and they were so wonderful and easy to work with. Their outdoor “studio” at their ranch is simply stunning and they was so engaging and sweet with our kids. Reasonably priced and an amazing talent – would highly recommend them.”

– M. Billick

Mercedes Morgan Photography is magical. We have 2 toddlers and picture day always is fraught with unforeseen no-nap takers and bad moods. But she has a way of taking a day where you thought you weren't going to get any good ones and voila! the pictures are AMAZING. I don't know how she does it. She is also super responsive and flexible and fun to work with. Can't recommend them enough!

What should we wear?
The short story: be comfortable!
The long answer: Some folks opt for dressy or super casual. Come in costume! Why not? Just bear a few things in mind when you’re deciding. First, we will be outdoors. So if you pick heels, be sure to bring flats with you to walk from the car to the site where we’ll be taking photos. Second: one outfit only, please.

How many people can we fit into one photo session?
The short story: as many as you bring.
The long answer: We can certainly fit in a big group. But since our time is limited, the number of poses may be limited as well. A full session would be best if you have a large family of six or more. That will ensure that we can get one or two poses for each smaller, immediate family group.

Can we bring any props?
The short story: of course!
The long answer: Please, do. Props to tell your 2020 story would be lovely to share with everyone who’ll see your images. I do recommend you limit how much you bring, though, and consider ease of carrying them so we don’t affect our shooting time. Also, please only bring what you can carry home with you. No confetti or things that are impossible to clean up. We want to be respectful of our surroundings, of course.
