Best Places in Austin for Senior Portraits

Austin Texas…The Live Music Capital of the World…what a beautiful place we live in.  It’s a photographer’s dream. North, South, East, and West…there are so many unique places in this melting pot.  We have our favorites for photographing weddings of course, but Senior Portraits are a blast to shoot around this city.


Here are some of our favorite places to photograph Senior Portraits in Austin in no specific order.

#1 – Radisson – This beautiful riverside hotel backs up to Town Lake and is short walk to the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge.  There are so many places to photograph around the Radisson we couldn’t even pick just one.

#2 – South Congess (SoCo) – This hip strip features an array of eclectic shops, restaurants, boutiques, antiques, music venues and galleries. With lots of color and life down here, photographing in SoCo is a revolving backdrop to play with.

#3 – Mills Pond – Mills Pond is a little hidden gem in North Austin off of Wells Branch.  A nice walking trail outlines this pond as well as cool swings, benches, rocks, and covered pier.  You wouldn’t believe it’s in the middle of the city!

#4 – Texas Capital Building – no explanation needed.

#5 – Brushy Creek – A 90+ acre park.  Where do we start?  This is just a great place if you are in the outdoor mood and want more natural backdrops.  We could even stop for a picnic!

#6 – Chisholm Trail Park – Home of the famous Round Rock, this place it all – a water fall (small),  big rocks, beautiful bridge, interesting trees and even a little old school house looking building with a tall staircase.  You should defintiely check it out if you haven’t been here.

#7 – UT Campus – fun, fun, fun!

These are 7 of our favorite places to photograph your Senior Pictures.  Have a place in mind?  Leave your comments and let us know!
