This little fam just melts my heart. We go way back, and it’s always such a pleasure to do photo sessions for friends. Life is so busy, and it can be hard to get together. This has been a great way to catch up with those friends, and see how their little ones have grown! I did little sister’s newborn pictures a year ago. After having two boys, the family decided to make the gender of number three a surprise, and I was SO excited to hear that it was a girl (everyone really should have at least one of each IMO)!! Here are some favorites from sister’s first bday outdoor socially-distanced shoot.
What a strange year 2020 is turning out to be! I feel blessed to be able to fit in a few socially distanced shoots this Spring/Summer. We’d booked this one well before anyone had even heard of Covid, and I’m so glad they were still up for making it happen. Big brother couldn’t be happier, and it was a joy to capture this growing family!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
I recently had the joy of taking some portraits for two sweet friends who my husband and I met in a parents therapy group almost six years ago. She and her husband were there mourning the loss of their twin boys. At the time, they were praying that God would bless them with more children. And boy did He! This was the first time for me to meet their daughters, and it was so wonderful to see their boistrous little family in action.
The memory of their sons is alive and well within their family as well as outside it, as they continue to do amazing things with March of Dimes in their memory. And what a comfort it is to know that they will be a family of seven in Heaven for eternity!
Tristan and Sawyer, you are so loved and always remembered.
