Fall is in the Air

I’ve had the pleasure of getting some snaps of this lovely bunch (who are our close friends) on a number of occasions over the last few years, and it’s so fun to watch their littles grow.  I also get to see their favorite images on their walls when I come over which is a plus :).  We were lucky enough to get some nice fall colors at our recent shoot, which isn’t always a given in Austin Texas.  Here are some of my personal favorites.

 

A Playful Location

I met this sweet family at a hidden gem in east Austin last month.  When we got started, little brother wasn’t really feeling having this picture taken.  I really appreciated how calm and collected mom and dad stayed even though he was resisting.  Unfortunately getting upset with an uncooperative child is a quick way to get zero authentic smiles.  Keeping things fun and playful is the best way to get everyone warmed up to the camera!

A Little Magic

There is something so special about a couple expecting their first baby.  The excitement, anticipation, and imagination of what is to come is palpable.  I had the pleasure of photographing these two on a warm weekday evening, and magic was in the air!  We were even blessed with some surprise flowers despite the dry summer.

My Humans are Getting Married

It’s full on summer here in Austin, TX, with temps reaching the 100’s. I met up with this fun couple a few weeks ago to help celebrate their recent engagement with a photoshoot.  These two steamed it up right from the first shot!  Their sweet one-eyed pup was there to join in the action as well.  Here are some favs from our shoot.

Sunrise Sunshine

A few weeks ago I had two shoots scheduled for the weekend, which is something I rarely do given our own busy family schedule.  One of the shoots was for a gal who was meeting her siblings and parents in Austin (everyone coming from out of town for a graduation).  Given their tight schedule I really wanted to make it work, so we put a sunrise session down.  Even with the early start time, this big bunch came ready for some action!  Here are some favorites from our playful shoot.

 

 

Glowing Mama-to-Be

I had the pleasure of photographing a lovey couple at one of my favorites spots earlier this month.  There was a gentle calmness between these two expecting parents, and mama was absolutely glowing!  It was a warm, quiet evening at the greenbelt, and here are some images from our sunset shoot.

Soon to be Four

I was so excited to hear earlier this year that this sweet little family was expecting a baby girl.  It’s just so fun watching my client-families grow! I can’t wait to see their precious baby in a few months, as well as how big brother handles the new arrival (that one can be tricky!). Here are a few favorites from our mini shoot.  Enjoy!

A Dreamy Setting

I was very excited to meet these two at Sekrit Theater for a maternity shoot a few weeks ago.  This sweet couple absolutely glows with their excitement for the pending birth of their son, and it was such a pleasure to see them again after shooting their birth announcement earlier this year.  This dreamy setting also didn’t disappoint! Here are some favorites from our shoot.

An Unexpected Adventure

Last weekend I met this sweet family at the north-Austin home they moved into a month ago. They’ve been having a blast exploring the nearby trails, so they wanted to capture their family there.  I’d never been to the site before, which can be tricky since I typically need to scout locations ahead of time.  But Dad did an excellent job thinking things through, and he even sent me pictures from his morning hike!  I didn’t realize quite what I was getting into – we literally hoofed it for 45 minutes into the woods!  There were some lovely little nooks along the way, and these kids seemed right at home.  Here are some favorites from our shoot.

A Dramatic Entrance

The newest addition to this sweet little family made a dramatic entrance into this world, with a serious fever scare and stay in the NICU.   Thank God everyone is doing well now!

Newborn shoots are some of my favorite.  Parents are beaming, siblings are bright eyed and curious, and then there is that adorable new born!  This little guy gave me lots of beautiful gazes, which is one of the reasons I like doing these shoots at a month or two old (rather than a few days old).  Here are some favorites from our time together.
