Austin Engagement Photographer: The Boat Docks

Austin Engagement Photographer: Boat Dock Love. I just wrapped up this adorable engagement sessions in the wee hours of the night last night. I cannot wait for these two's wedding in the fall at Gabriel Springs in Gergetown. They were high school sweet hearts that are tying the knot. I LOVE IT. So many sweet moments came from their engagement session, but I loved this little moment from the boat docks on Lake Austin. Amy wanted a little something rustic for her rustic themed wedding, plus a little bit of Austin. So, we started out by cruising downtown, then moved to a beautiful rustic park and then ended at this…

Austin Family Photography: Girl Time!

Austin Family Photography: Some Seriously Cute Girl Time + Dad I was so excited when I got the opportunity to work with this amazing family. I had been watching these cute little faces for sometime on FB.  Mom and I are actually childhood friends, but we haven't seen each other in years (and by years I mean at least a decade). The family had been in Houston for sometime, but when they returned to the best city on Earth I was asked to photograph their family. I was super excited! Also it was like photographing my family BUT completely opposite. Instead of two rowdy boys, she has two adorable little…

Austin Baby Photography | One Month Sweetness

Austin Baby Photography | Shauna Autry Photography Welcome to the World Baby E. Back in the Spring I had the honor of working with this beautiful family again, and this time they were a family of 4! Baby E had arrived and was being doted on by the entire family. Such sweetness. Big Sister was just as full of life and hilariousness as always, but she was also a glowing big sis. And the new baby was a delight. She was sweet, adorable, calm, and wonderful. She had busy arms and feet and was just ready to take on the world. It is amazing the difference a couple weeks make.…

Austin Wedding Photography: Chateau Bellevue {Betsy + Matt}

Austin Wedding Photography: Chateau Bellevue {Betsy + Matt} This gorgeous wedding at Chateau Bellevue was full of fun, originality, and lots of laughs. I thoroughly enjoyed working with such a fun loving couple. I love the bride's getting ready shots. Obviously, she is gorgeous and fun to photograph but they have this classic vintage feel that I just fell in love with. So pardon me as you go through and I might slip into a black and white sequence. The ceremony was heartfelt and beautiful. The flowers by Bouquets of Austin were gorgeous and the bridal bouquet was one of a kind. Then there was the maple bacon Star Wars…

Austin Family Photography: Loving the Wildflowers {8 Month Baby & Family Portraits}

Austin Family Photography: Loving the Wildflowers Last weekend I had three adorable family sessions. This is from the last of the bunch. When I drove up to meet the family at the location they looked at me like I was a bit crazy. From the somewhat sketchy parking lot you could not see the beautiful lush field that was about to unfold. But, they trusted me and we hiked back to my one of my favorite locations and had the most fabulous session. This little guy was a photographers dream. He was all smiles, no fuss, loved sitting in dirt, and also seemed to enjoy eating it. Haha. He loved…

Austin Newborn Photography: Eye Contact.

Austin Newborn Photography: Eye Contact. Such a Special Moment. This past weekend I got to meet the newest addition to this wonderful family. She was about one month old for her photos and she was just as precious and calm as could be. I just love this shot from our session with mom. She was getting pretty sleepy towards the end of our session and I was grabbing just a couple more shots, when this little moment happened. She was just staring right up at her momma. Precious. I love it. I cannot wait to get working on this session. SO much fun working with this family including the creative…
