Photoshoot Locations in Greater Houston

We all know the location of a photoshoot can help define the vibe and overall feel of a session, so selecting your location can be so very important! And let's be honest, Houston is a BIG city! Working with your photographer to choose a location that best fits your family is key. If you adore tall grassy fields, I got you covered. If you prefer Spanish moss hanging from the trees, I know just the place. If you want a manicured garden look for your session, we can definitely make that happen! Choosing a location that will help you (your family, your significant other, your kiddos) feel more natural can be a great way to be sure that your photos will come out feeling like you!

I know I mentioned these are great photoshoot locations, but did I also mention most of them are free?

Woohoo! Let's get to it!

Photos shown display the same locations in multiple seasons,

so please reach out if you are unsure what the location may look like during YOUR photoshoot season!

Cy-Hope (Cypress, Texas) - free

This spot is so dreamy! You can get so many different looks at this location- there is Spanish moss hanging from the trees, multiple small bridges, a large field, trees, a pathway... the options feel endless here! This spot is perfect for family sessions, milestones, and couples who love that “deep south” vibe!

Mason Creek Hike + Bike (Katy, Texas) - Free

This little park is just adorable! There is a pond, gorgeous fields and trees. This location has tall grass that changes from green tones in summer to early fall to gorgeous gold in late fall and winter. The light always ends up just dreamy at this spot!

Terry Hershey Park (Houston, Texas) - Free

Talk about a large park! There are so many different areas to shoot at Terry Hershey, which allows for lots of variety in the images. There are bridges, creeks, and fields of bluebonnets in the Spring. There are gorgeous trees and lots of playgrounds around if you need to bribe your kiddos with play time after the session. This location is very central in Houston and is a fan favorite for that reason!

Eleanor Tinsley Park (Downtown Houston) - Free

This park has a gorgeous view of the downtown skyline if we shoot East and a beautiful garden to walk through facing West! There are paths, benches covered by gorgeous trees, roses, and a large open grass field. I love this spot for so many reasons! I did my first professional shoot here and I captured a sunrise proposal at this location- sweet memories!

Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve (North Houston)- Free

This spot is becoming a new favorite! The best time for sessions at this location is the morning, so grab that cup of coffee and rise and shine! You can expect a session to begin here around 8:00am-9:00am, depending on the time of year! It's hard to beat the beautiful water and trees with the sun coming up!

The Creative Chateau (Houston, Texas) - Accompanied by Fee($125-$150)

This venue is what classic, beautiful dreams are made of! The way the light comes through each room is every photographer’s dream! While this location does require an hourly fee, it is so worth it to have the beautiful, crisp vibes in your photos! I'm always happy to reserve a time slot here for your session if this style of location fits your family!

In-Home Session - Accompanied by travel fee if greater than 50 mile commute

Well, there really is no place like home! Especially for family photos, milestones, newborn sessions... the list could go on! This can be the perfect location if you want your photos to be taken in the place you spend most of your days together as a family. For in-home sessions, we work together to find the best spots within your home to allow for natural light and beautiful portraits!
