Austin Modern Family Photography | A Post Apocalyptic Portrait

Austin Modern Family Photography | A Post Apocalyptic Portrait This is my sister-in-law's family portrait. She came to me with the idea months ago and asked me if I would mind photographing her family in a Zombie Apocalypse session. Of course, I said with some hesitation.  The idea was a little bit out of my comfort zone. But over the last couple months I watched her plan and pin, and create costumes and slowly I started warming to the idea. Then she sent me a photograph of the location and it was perfect. So last weekend I headed out to the edge of a limestone quarry and we made this…

Austin Family Maternity Photography | One Cutie and Another on the Way

Austin Family Maternity Photography | One Cutie and Another on the Way | Shauna Autry Photography I had the opportunity to work with this adorable family over a year ago for this little man's 2nd birthday. He was so little and precious then, and he is equally adorable and precious now! He was talking up a storm, buzzing around busily, and was ALL SMILES. He cracked me up. And now, now there is another one on the way. Another little BOY! Little man is about to be a big brother. And this family of three is about to be a family of four. I love working with this family.  …

Austin Mueller Engagement Photography | Allison + Bobby

Austin Mueller Engagement Photography | Allison + Bobby | Shauna Autry Photography Here is a sneak peek from an Engagement session that I worked on a couple days ago. I am so excited about Allison and Bobby's March wedding at Mercury Hall. I absolutely loved working with this couple. We had a blast and captured many great images. We went to Mueller for this session and we could have used two MORE hours there were so many fun spots. It was a gorgeous night with beautiful light and I couldn't be any more happy with the results. I can't wait to edit all of them. Until then, enjoy this little…

Austin Engagement Photography | A Sweet Proposal | Texas State Capitol

Austin Engagement Photography | A Sweet Proposal | Texas State Capitol   Every once in a while I get the exciting opportunity to covertly photograph an engagement. While these photo shoots last about five minutes and take lots of planning, they are some of my favorites. I don't know what happens, but my heart starts pounding every time. I get sooooo nervous. They are just so EXCITING! Anyway, this proposal was nothing short of amazing. It was sweet, romantic, and just such a special moment to witness.  I feel so lucky sometimes getting to experience such intimate moments. And I feel so honored to be trusted with them. Here is…

Austin TX Family Photography | Pockets and a Giraffe

Austin TX Family Photography | Pockets and a Giraffe | Shauna Autry Photography This may be one of my favorite photos of my littlest. I'm not sure what it is, but it just speaks volumes about him. Hollis is super shy and quiet while in public, but at home he is quirky and hilarious. He doesn't have a lovie, but sometimes he attaches himself to a stuffed animal for the day. Today, it was his giraffe. You never know. And, he discovered the joy of pockets. It's the little things. A hard lesson I am learning with my kids is that you can't stop time, and however hard you try…
