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.

Independent Gal

I’ve photographed this sweet family a handful of times now (starting with big brother’s first birthday portraits), and it’s always fun to see how much everyone has grown! Little sister was more interested in exploring than having her photo taken, but she played along in between dipping her toes in the water and checking out her surroundings. It seems she’s going to be a very independent girl one day in the not-so-distant future! Here are some favorites from our socially distanced shoot. ūüôā

Boy, Boy… Girl!

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

 

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.
