I photographed the stunning Bolin family last week at Zilker Park at sunrise which allowed for many different beautiful lighting situations. It was a chilly start to the day but with some warm thoughts (the kids screamed “pancakes” instead of “cheese” which I loved and inspired post shoot brunch plans) we got some great portraits of this beautiful family. Here are some of my favorites- and as always, all images © Heather Gallagher Photography

I can’t believe this boy is one! I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Eli since he was in utero and many times since and each time I’m so shocked at how much he has grown. Here are some of my favorites from his recent birthday party with friends & family at his lovely home in Austin, TX.

A week ago, Ariston Ellis Golden was born, and it was awesome. This little man kept us all on our toes anticipating his arrival; he was predicted to come early but instead arrived a day after his original due date. How eerily accurate! I was so honored to be there and to document this most important day, and everyone sure made it really easy on me! Nichole, Ariston’s bad ass momma, was so calm and collected the whole time and new Poppa Will was solid as a rock by Nichole’s side. It was also a beautiful, unseasonably warm January day in Austin.  Ariston came into the world at 2:01 pm on January 15 at St. David’s hospital after a very brief and graceful labor and he could not be more loved by his new parents.

As a birth photographer, I’ve been present for a number of births  but now that I am expecting (and soon), I was absolutely overwhelmed with how amazing life is. This came in the form of big, sloppy, blur your viewfinder tears.

Congratulations, Nichole & Will and welcome to the world, baby Ariston!!

This morning I had the pleasure of taking the Graham family’s holiday portraits. They were all warm and cozy on this dreary day in their adorable Christmas PJ’s, trapdoors, footies and all! Here are some of my favorites from this great shoot.
