As I watch my children learn, think, talk and grow, I realize they are observing the way we do the same. They learn more from what we are are than what we teach; Tulsi has Daddy’s discipline and thrives with direction and order whereas Zara inherited Mommy’s ability to quickly adapt in new environments.
Here is one of my favorites from our impromptu back-to-school session yesterday. It was entertaining to execute this all on my own say the least.
Stay tuned for more!
Dear future husbands: please plan a secret photographer for your proposal. Your future bride wants that genuine moment captured on film.
Here is one of my favorite shots of a bridal session I did in northwest Austin last month. Natalie is such a dream to photograph. She is equally beautiful inside and out. I can’t wait to share the rest of her bridal and wedding photos!
Adore this gang and loved doing their family photos / little brother’s 2nd birthday portraits a couple of weeks ago. I can’t believe he’s already two; it was just yesterday that I was doing his maternity photos!
Lifestyle sessions at home make me so so happy. Not only do I enjoy getting to see what my friends and clients have done with the work I’ve produced, but it is a place where children are typically the happiest and most relaxed. In some cases, so relaxed that they start marching around in undies. Pure cuteness.
And we totally bribed our way thru this shoot with things that only moms of boys would understand. But if you ask me, blonde-haired, blue-eyed boys can do no wrong!
That’s right – even superheroes must brush their teeth!! Big brother even sang the birthday song whilst brushing. Seriously. . . CUTE.
I’ve been shooting long enough (pre-digital) to see the progression of smiling, happy faces to backs of cell phones lining the aisle during a wedding processional. It is a bit saddening. As you can imagine, my heart did leaps of joy when I found out Natalie and Michael were having and “unplugged” ceremony. This idea of asking guests to turn away from their devices for 30 minutes meant everyone was truly paying witness and present.. Here is part one of their wedding day, just before the bride walked down the aisle at the Terrace Club in Dripping Springs.
About this time last year, we were all waiting with bated breath for the arrival of this sweet little baby. And, fast forward one year, we have another successful graduate of my belly to birthday photography experience. I have loved photographing this little angelic being in and around my favorite Austin parks these past 12 months. She has truly made the world and her home a prettier place.
A few of my favorites below, not the least of which was her announcement photo from her newborn session.
Happy birthday, Miss P! Hope it is full of cake and giggles. xo
So much to celebrate today – sweet Stella turns eighteen months and another chapter in her beautiful story is complete!! This amazing baby girl bravely underwent neurosurgery shortly after her first birthday and subsequently surpassed all expectations with a quick recovery and gift of mobility over Mother’s Day weekend.
Stella, you are so beautiful and so loved! You and your family are all remarkable individuals we are blessed to call friends. Xo
It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to!
