These are definitely interesting times. While working from home with two kids has been challenging, it’s also been an incredible gift- of slowing down and spending time with the people I love. No one knows how long we’ll be at home like this, so we might as well embrace it fully! Obviously my shoots have come to a halt, but I did get to snap this sweet family just before the shut down. Enjoy!
I was so excited to wrap up this gallery for some sweet friends before the holidays. Isn’t this little fam just the cutest?!! They waited to find out the sex of their youngest, and I was so excited to hear that they’d been blessed with a girl after two boys (it’s so nice to have both!)! Here are some favorites from our shoot.
Life has been a bit hectic lately, as I’ve started a new venture in my professional life that I am very excited about. That being said, I’m so grateful for this creative outlet and the lovely families I get to capture!! I did maternity photos for this sweet couple over the summer, and it’s so fun to come back to meet the “resulting” bundle of joy. Here are some favorites from our time together. I just love newborn shoots- give me all the babies!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
