13 / 31 Epic summer session| Feature by Sara K Blanco

Is this session personal work or client work?

This session was for a client, a fellow photographer, and her daughter. We started by photographing a lifestyle session in their home and ended our day outside to catch an amazing sunset.

Tell us a bit about the magic of summer + the connection to your lens?

I love everything about summer in Texas, especially the long sunny days that are best spent dipping your toes in some water. I used my 35 mm 1.4 for this session, because there was so much movement, light and space that I didn’t want to miss.

What about this session makes it an Epic summer session?

I think this session is pretty epic, because of the connection between mom and her baby girl. I needed to give zero direction, they were so in tune with each other and their joy in each others presence was a delight.

What else is on your summer bucket list to photograph this summer?

I stay busy with client sessions throughout every season that my camera usually stays tucked away when I’m home, but this summer I’d really love to photograph my boys and our time together. They have grown so much over the past year and with my youngest starting kinder, I’m beginning to realize that time will never slow down and I don’t want to miss a minute.

What gear was used to achieve these?

I used my Canon Mark iii and 35 mm 1.4 for this session.

Any summer tips or photographer advice?

Get outside with your clients or the people you love and just shoot. Don’t worry about the sweat and the rosy cheeks, just embrace the magic of summer and have fun. Always have an open mind and heart, allow joy to be a part of everyday!!



I live in San Antonio, TX with my husband of twelve years, our two boys and our rescue dog, Bear. I was lucky enough to know that art was the only path for my life at an early age and have been pursuing photography as a job with as much passion as I had at 17. I adore people, connections and relationships as much as I love this art and am forever grateful to the families who choose me.
