Downtown Austin

I was excited to shoot a new location in downtown Austin. It was a grey, overcast morning, and it took a little while for everyone to warm up for pictures (most of us aren’t exactly excited to have our picture taken at 7a on a Sunday ;). But once we got going it was all good! Here are a few favs from our shot.

The Whole Family

This sweet mama reached out to me recently to capture images of their entire family. Mom, dad, two brothers, pup, and two sweet kitties. Those kitties were very special to this family, and they were both terminally ill. I was thrilled to help them capture everyone together before these two passed on. I really do believe that pets are a part of our family and that we will be with them again in Heaven. In the meantime, they will be dearly missed! Here are some favorites from our mini shoot.

Rise and Shine

I recently met up with this sweet fam to help capture another babe on the way. We opted for a sunrise shoot with big brother’s schedule and the long July days (a 7:30p shoot with a two year old is just asking for trouble!). It was a beautiful morning, and it felt peaceful and quiet out on Bull Creek. With recent rains, there was a ton of water flowing through this area. Here are some favorites from our little shoot.

Babies babies babies!

I was so excited to hear that this sweet family was expecting again! I started with first-birthday photos for their eldest, and it’s always a joy to continue to photograph a family as they grow. Here are a few pics from their mini-shoot in south Austin, and I can’t wait to photograph their new babe in a month!

More Than Just a Hobby

Y’all, I love photography. I mean, like realy love it!!! I know like most moms, having pictures of my family is so important. These memories, this time, caught in an image forever, brings me so much joy. But there’s so much more to it than aiming your camera at a smile. It’s all of those details, color, sharpness, warmth, texture, glimmer in the eyes, that gets me really excited. Composition, light, focal length, editing… it challenges me constantly, and my photography style continues to evolve.

On another note, sharing some favorites from a recent shoot with this darling family. And kudos to mom for styling this bunch so well!! I know from personal experience that part can be challenging!

I’ll Get to It Eventually!

The end of 2020 was a busy one as usual, and I’m grateful for all of the sweet families I got to photograph. And particularly this one since they are great friends! It was wonderful to meet their newest addition, since I hadn’t seen her yet due to covid. This is a very delayed post of pictures are from November, but that’s just life these days! Better late than never right?! Here are a few from our sweet family shoot. Enjoy! 🙂
