All that wood, those dogs, that baby, that swing! I can’t say enough good things about this sweet family and their fabulous restored east Austin bungalow that I had the opportunity to photograph recently for Love Child Magazine.  To read the full story about how these two babes met, how they’re preparing for baby numero dos, and all the details on this seriously Pinterest worthy home, read the article here.

If you know me well, you’ll know that I’m my happiest around a lot of kids and a lot of food. Throw in the opportunity to do photography and I’m just in heaven. I had been looking forward to this job for the better part of a year, ever since this sweet momma reached out to me, while only a few months pregnant, to ask if I would document her growing family’s Saturday morning breakfast tradition. Over the months leading up to our session, I had the pleasure of really connecting with this family and after their newest addition, Charlie was born (on my birthday!) I spent the loveliest morning taking part in and documenting their sweet morning routine.

I’ve been looking forward to this event all year.  Austin wine maker and sommelier, Wine for the People’s Rae Wilson and her partner, Jill Posey, not only know how to make an incredible wine but they can also throw a great party! With the perfect mix of friends, family, industry professionals and the general public, this event at Lenior was classic Austin and just like this wine – laid back, comfortable yet classy as hell. Cheers!

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.
