Beautiful Mommy, beautiful girl, beautiful location, beautiful light and icy, icy, cold winds. We all stayed warm though with lots of laughter, running around, and Mom and daughter cuddles. I love watching these little ones grow and seeing new siblings come along. You can see this big 2 year old as a 3 month […]

I had the opportunity to work with this amazing swimmer and make some portraits of her right before she left for college. I’ve watched her swim a few times and she is F.A.S.T. easily beating everyone in the pool (including some pretty burly looking dudes) by a couple body lengths.

When planning this shoot with their mom, she told me she wanted the portraits to have bright vivid colors and vintage fun feel. We […]
Here is a sneak peak at some beautiful girls and a super fun portrait session on a lovely spring evening in Austin. Enjoy! More to come.
Fields of Bluebonnets, the Austin skyline, great weather and happy photogenic people… the best recipe for a perfect family portrait session. Often when I am editing, a song will pop into my head that epitomizes the photo session perfectly. Look at these pictures and sing (out loud or in your head,) “Imagine me and you, […]
A lot of the old weather adages that I grew up with in Illinois just don’t fit here in Central Texas. The traditional saying “In like a lion out like a lamb” doesn’t make a whole lot of sense in a city where the average high at the beginning of March is 70°F and the average at the end […]
