Relaxed, Sunrise Family Portraits in Austin | the Herreras

Ana and Andres are two of the sweetest people we've ever met.  They've held a special place in our hearts since we photographed their intimate wedding back in 2013, and since then they've become a beautiful family of four. As anyone would expect, the two little boys they're bringing up are as loving and charming as both of their parents. We aren't surprised by that in the slightest.

We met early for a sunrise family session in the heart of East Austin at Mueller Park. Andres' mother was visiting from Columbia so we snagged a few shots with her as well. During one part of the session, when I asked D if he would give his mom a kiss-- he leaned in with all the passion and enthusiasm of a 4-year-old boy-- kissing her right on the lips (instead of the cheek as I intended)! I think it's pretty clear that he learned how to love his mom so fearlessly from watching his father do the same. It was such a tender and beautifully innocent moment that I'm so happy we caught as it unfolded. Scroll on to see what I'm talking about and enjoy the warmth and pure joy of this wonderful family.  Your family is simply perfection, Ana and Andres.
