This was a really special shoot. Erika, who lives in Florida and Michael, who lives in Louisiana, don’t see each other often as their jobs as aerospace engineers keep them busy in their respective cities. They are welcoming their first child, a boy, in just seven short weeks and I’m so happy they asked me to photograph this rare moment they have together, while visiting family in Austin. We met at Mueller Lake Park in Central Austin under the perfect amount of cloudy skies (natures light diffuser), and when Erika stepped out of the car that they had been driving in since 5am looking absolutely fabulous in 5 inch heels and perfect hair at 33 weeks, I was impressed. Here are some of my favorites from their sweet maternity mini session:
It was so much fun photographing these cousins at their grandparents beautiful home in Northwest Hills, Austin. The littlest one, Devora and her mom came into town from DC to be with family for Devora’s first birthday and I’m so thrilled they asked me to be there to mark the occasion and to capture all the cousins, ages 1-10, together. Everybody brought their own fun personality to the shoot and although Devora isn’t talking just yet, her sweet pink cowboy boots made quite a statement! Here are some of my favorites from this fun kids session.
