Family Portraits With Tori, Nick & Nova in Old Town Helotes

As great as posed photos can be, when I photograph a family, I love highlighting how they interact with each other, especially when kids are involved. They make the images even better with their adorable expressions and innocence, and not to forget, they make the whole session fun too! With just some sweet treats and consideration for their nap time, they can become the perfect little models (that too without any major posing cues!). When I recently photographed Tori and Nick with their little one, Nova, I realized that she was a born model! She was so sweet and calm throughout the shoot, and that naturally made the parents stress-free too. So besides getting some family portraits, I was even able to get some lovely photographs of mom and dad.

Old Town Helotes Family Photography

We did this wonderful photo session with Tori, Nick, and Nova in Helotes. The location was so beautiful and had plenty of spots that made for terrific backdrops for the pictures. The shoot was right in the middle of Texas grounds, Helotes Creek Winery, Simply Yours Gifts & More, and Old Town Depot Antiques. From delicious coffee and fresh pastries to shopping antiques and all the other fun knick-knacks, this place had it all. 

Having photographed so many families in the past, I know that sometimes it’s easy for the parents to get stressed when they want to look good and just hope that their little one behaves! However, with Nova in a good mood, Tori was super relaxed. She was so stylish, and Nick also looked so handsome in his casuals. Besides being so photogenic, Nova was a fashionista too. I loved how Tori and Nick had dressed her up in the cutest little outfit with accessories that matched her mom’s dress. It makes me so happy when the parents consciously make an effort to coordinate their outfits. 

I realized that Nova had Tori’s smile when I was taking some ‘mommy and me’ photographs. But it was clear to me that little Nova was definitely a daddy’s girl. She simply lit up whenever Nick smiled at her. I was super impressed with how comfortable Nova was in front of the camera as she gave me her best (and the most heart-melting) poses for her solo portraits. I also took some lovely photos of Tori and Nick and got to witness the love and strong bond they shared. All three of my models were super photogenic. I wanted to focus on bringing out the bond these three shared, and I am so happy with the result (and so were my clients!).
