Austin Baby Photographer: Happy First Birthday Bug!

My little nephew turned 1 this month! I have to say, I like this little guy. He is happy, easy going, and just a fun loving guy. This was a very abbreviated photo session. I am 9 months pregnant and about to bust. SO my ability to move around and be where I need to be is limited. I think I was out of breath for 90% of this shoot. However, we wanted to get this in right around his first birthday to capture the moment. These little guys just change so much from day to day. So, we headed to Rattan Creek Park for a quick little photo outing.…

Austin Anniversary Photography: South Congress & Long Center

This photo shoot was SO MUCH fun! The lovely couple was excited and willing to have fun and take some fun photos. Emily and Jason were married 5 years ago and looking to get some fresh new photos. I think that is awesome, so here we have some 5 year anniversary photos! What a great idea you two. We started out on South Congress and just made our way up and down the street looking for interesting buildings and cool textures. There are SO MANY great places to take photos on South Congress. I think we could have probably stayed there a lot longer, but alas we were battling daylight and wanted…

Austin Family Photographer: Memorial Day Weekend

Okay, so I accidently posted a blog from my personal family blog onto my photo blog. I have never done this before and apologize to all those who actually read through it! I'll go ahead and keep some of the photos up. These pictures are from our at home Memorial Day cook out. My son was a little under the weather (not that it looks like it), so we kept ourselves contained to the house and had a blast. We played slip n' slide for what seemed like hours, ate watermelon, made mojitos (or minty limeades), and my husband grilled out. It actually turned out to be one of the…

Austin Maternity Photographer: Rattan Creek Park

I am very blessed this year. Blessed with many wonderful friends having babies. The parents of this little one are keeping the sex a surprise, so I can hardly stand the anticipation. Come on July! We did this shoot at Rattan Creek Park off of Parmer Lane (north Austin). I love this place for its simplicity. It has nice tall trees, well maintained green grass, and a lovely sunset if you go at the right time. We also did some inside shots at mom and dad's house. I had so much fun working with this couple, and hey why wouldn't I they are some of my best friends. They are…

Austin Newborn Baby Photographer: In Grandma’s Backyard

Little babies are the greatest. Mr. Henry is now 7 weeks and we finally had the opportunity to do a longer photo shoot. What a sweet guy. Mom informed me before the session that Henry was in a stage that involved lots of crying and fussing. Well, he was a perfect little angel for me. He was calm, relaxed, and easy to work with. Absolutely perfect. We did this shoot on location at Henry's Grandma's house. I love this house. I love the red bricks, the vintage feel, and the urban location. What more could one ask for? Mr. Henry continues to amaze me with his adorableness. He is too cute…

Austin Children’s Photographer: Mayfield Park

I happen to think this is a beautiful family. This might be because it is my brothers brood. I am so blessed to have all these beautiful children & families surrounding me. What cutie pies. This photo shoot originated in honor of little Mae's first birthday. Originally we were just going to do first birthday photos. But, we decided that it was time for a "real" photo shoot. Mom picked out Mayfield Park, and the rest is history. We did do some extra photos of Mae to capture her first birthday, but we could not resist her adorable and charming big brother. I had a hard time limiting the photos…

Austin Senior & Family Photographer: Driftwood, TX

I was excited about this photo shoot for many different reasons. For starters, my husband and I got married in Driftwood, TX so I always love having an excuse to head out there. Then, I learned this is a family with two boys. I myself have one son and am expecting another late this summer. I have thus found myself fascinated with the all boy families. Well I could not have asked for more. I drove right past my wedding venue en-route to the shoot, and the boys were just delightful. Oh, did I mention they have the most BEAUTIFUL land. I love it out there. There was actually two…

Austin Children’s Photographer: Rattan Creek Park with My Little Love Bug

Okay, so I hardly ever (or never actually) post about my little guy. But I decided to start. While he may not be the MOST cooperative little model in the world, he is pretty darn cute. He also likes to go play in the park. So, I thought I might start blogging about our adventures in and around town. I am hoping it will help give clients good ideas for places to go, and also help me explore a little bit. Last weekend we went to Rattan Creek Park off of Parmer Lane. I pass by it nearly everyday picking up my son from his morning daycare. It is not…

Austin Children’s Photographer: Long Center Park & Town Lake

Some things make your heart sing. This photo shoot has done this to me. I love this family! We had a great shoot at the Long Center Park. It was a good mix of urban and nature. Some of the park was under construction (unfortunately cutting us off from the actual Long Center), but we had plenty to do. The girls had a blast running around the grassy hills, collecting lady bugs, finding big sticks (for fishing in the weeping willow obviously), and dancing. Sometimes you just have to twirl around! We also got our urban fix by crossing the street and walking around the pedestrian bridge that crosses Town…
