Jean called me a few weeks ago to inquire about my services; her two daughters and six grandchildren were all going to be in town (half of them came from as far as South Africa) and they were looong overdue for a family portrait. What started out as a professional conversation about logistics and scheduling turned into a long chat about our families, Texas and children. Needless to say, I was eager to meet Jean in person and she and her family were lovelier than I had imagined. As a lifestyle photographer, I typically don’t give much direction in my sessions, however, Jean was wanting a few more formal shots for her wall and I was happy to oblige. Turned out these siblings and cousins were pros and I found myself not having to do much! Here are some of my favorites from this portrait session with this beautiful family in Buda, TX.
You guys, I’ve been so excited to share these images. Recently I was invited to document sisters Libby, Amy and Nancy together with their spouses and seven children combined while they were on vacation in Horseshoe Bay celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their mother and father. And it was such a dream. As a documentary and family photographer, it was all of my favorite things coming together in the most beautiful setting, even I felt like I was on vacation. I am so thankful to be able to give the gift of preserving this special time in their lives thru my photography and to them for trusting me to do so. Here are some of my favorites from these awesome two days.
Here’s a preview of my recent newborn shoot with this lovely family in the Brentwood neighborhood of Austin. Baby Brayden, born just 3 weeks ago, slept for most of our sweet session despite Angie and Jason gently trying to keep him awake and their pup Sydney, bouncing around reminding everyone she was here first. You’d never know she was 13 years old! I love the huge live oak tree in their front yard; it is just begging to be climbed all over by Brayden soon enough.
This kid is too adorable. Joshua turned one last weekend and I’m so happy to have been asked to photograph his party with friends and family in Austin; here are some of my favorites from this sweet celebration.
