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.

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.
Ready for His Close Up
I feel very blessed this year for the opportunity to help a number of families with their holiday portraits. This was my second time to shoot this sweet bunch, and their little guy definitely came ready for his close up! I can’t believe how much he’s grown up in the few short months since I did his first-birthday shots.
Following a Calling
A friend recently shared with me that God has called her family to start an electric bike company for our area. After a number of events/conversations that were too many to call coincidence (and could only be confirmation), she and her husband took the plunge and purchased a fleet of electric bikes. I went for a spin on one with them a few weeks ago to capture some images for their new business as well as their family. I’d never ridden on one before, and it was so much fun! We took a spin across Mo-Pac outside of the Travis Country neighborhood and down the new pedestrian bridge that crosses the scenic greenbelt. They will be officially open for business this fall, and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for their little enterprise!
Let Her Eat Cake!
With their daughter’s first birthday right around the corner, I met this sweet little family to capture some fun images of them together. As a mother of two myself, I certainly have a special place in my heart for one-year-old’s and birthday celebrations!! The shoot of course wasn’t complete with out a cake to mash those precious little hands into. I think it’s safe to say she enjoyed it ;). Happy birthday little lady!
