Nola, who turned one last month was such a joy to photograph. I came over early in the morning to her Travis Heights home and she was immediately warm, playful and open to me and my camera. With new clients, especially when little ones are involved, it’s nice to have a longer session to allow for outfit changes, play time, boo boos and cuddles and it allows time for me and the subject to establish a rhythm and gain trust. Love Nola’s sweet outfits as much as I do? Check out her moms downtown Austin shop, Wee. Here are some of my favorites from our sweet lifestyle session.

Alex, a stunning high school freshman with a personality to match, is an aspiring model and actress and what started as a head shot session to update her portfolio quickly turned into a mini lifestyle family session, because, well, I just can’t resist photographing such a lovely family.  Here’s a preview of this fun, spontaneous shoot at their Lakeway home.

Babies are tricky little things. I love my son so much but I’ll be the first to admit that I enjoy him so much more now that he’s walking and talking, however, put me around someone else’s newborn and I c a n n o t get enough. Michelle and Inti welcomed their first child, Azul (love his name!) three weeks ago and he is exactly as yummy as he looks. I love watching new families pad around their homes, catering to their tiny babes and taking note of the details of their new lives: remnants of their recent baby shower, the considered placement of wooden blocks to spell “baby” in the nursery, all those pump and bottle pieces air drying on the kitchen counter (so many pieces). Each still life serves as a time capsule and a reminder that even though the days are long the years are short and I could (almost) be convinced that I’m ready for another baby. Almost. See, I told you babies are tricky.

Here are some of my favorites from my recent newborn and family session with the Gonzalez family in their South Austin home.

Whether you’re a UT alum or not, if you live in Austin chances are you know who Bevo is. The gorgeous 13 year old longhorn who is the mascot for the University of Texas was the guest of honor at Martha Smalls’ open house for fellow Keller Williams real estate agents from all over the country at her stunning Tarrytown home.  What an awesome and certainly memorable welcome to Austin! Here are some of my favorites- Hook Em!
