Austin Portrait Studio

We’ve all seen the images of families in a meadow full of tall grass or bluebonnets if you’re in Texas, or family beach session photographs with them walking hand-in-hand. So, why is it that there is an increased demand for studio portraits?

It’s not that families aren’t interested in outdoor photography, because they are – if it’s done right. Outdoor photo shoots should be included as part of your family’s portrait session, but there is something special about having family portraits taken at a professional photo studio that can’t be duplicated in outdoor sessions

What Makes our Professional Studio Portraits Unique?

There are many benefits to choosing an indoor portrait studio for your family photographs:

1) You can be comfortable and relaxed (and wear your favorite hoodie and leggings!) and never have to worry about weather conditions like wind or rain.

2) Your child can sit down – we all know that kids need frequent breaks from standing!

3) Your family can be photographed together without distractions from surroundings and nature.

4) If you are looking for a more dramatic image, you can select from any of our stunning backdrops.

5) You will never have to cancel or reschedule because of weather conditions

6) With professional lighting you will capture the timeless portrait of your family whatever time of day it is.

7) Our studio is fully equipped with props, and accessories so you can choose exactly what you want for your portraits.

We have found that these are just some of the reasons why more families are requesting studio sessions as opposed to outdoor ones. To book your session, contact us today by Clicking Here | We’d love to hear from you!

The quality of professional studio photographers has improved considerably since the days of last-minute mall photoshoots and cheesy “glamour” photos from the department stores. The standard of expert studio shooters is better today than ever before. There are two primary reasons for this.


The photography industry has more and higher-quality educational resources than ever before. Prior to the advent of internet education and social media, these materials were only accessible through expensive college programs.


Consumers’ increased expectations for high-quality work has also driven photographers to improve their standards. People see and share more photographs than they ever have thanks to the popularity of social media, especially Instagram. A photographer in the United Kingdom has influenced someone searching for photos in Austin TX because of the worldwide availability of great photographers.

Rise in Popularity for Studio Portraiture

Another reason studio portraits are so popular is that people’s lifestyles have changed since the days of roll film cameras. We’re more mobile and move around, snapping photos with our phones wherever we go. For this reason, you might not always get a natural photo opportunity or be in the right place at the right time.

Studio portrait photography has become extremely common among families, couples, brides-to-be, maternity moms, newborn phots, pets, events, even corporate headshots. This type of photography is ideal for capturing memories because it offers timeless images full of life and personality. Studio sessions typically last about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how many looks are being shot.


These days, we’re more accustomed to taking selfies and talking selfies than we are to wait for the perfect photo opportunity to present itself. For this reason, portrait photography is a booming business. Visit our Austin Portrait Studio | Zesty Orange Photography by Olesya Redina where it’s always picture perfect!


Both as photographers and photo subjects, the difficulties of outdoor photoshoots combined with a lack of creative resources leave us wanting more. It was our own experience having our image taken outdoors that prompted us to start a portrait studio in the first place. Having your portrait shoot in a studio allows for a far more pleasant, flexible, and enjoyable photoshoot, as well as updated portrait styles.

Our clients believe that the desire for photos with a more modern style, as well as the flexibility of an indoor photoshoot, is the most important factor in selecting a studio photo session over an outdoor shoot. Studio portraits provide a broader selection of style alternatives, from dramatic maternity photographs to more elegant family images. Having access to a changing room, not being at the mercy of unpredictable weather, and privacy are all factors why people want their pictures taken in a studio.

Many of our clients are looking for a more personal touch to their images. Group shots, for example, are often popular in this age group because they want to ensure that everyone is in the photo.

There’s not much you can do when it comes to outdoor photography – unless you have an extremely understanding neighbor with a lovely garden or scenic property, or go somewhere that offers them free reign over the land. Unless you’re incredibly lucky, your outdoor portrait shots will mostly be restricted to family snapshots rather than truly personalized portraits.
