7 quick takes

1- STEMS Floral Design

I recently had the great pleasure of working with STEMS when shooting a wedding at the W. They reached out for a few shots  and I’m sure you’ll agree these designers produce some of the best bouquets and arrangements I’ve seen in Austin weddings. Be sure to check them out if you have an upcoming wedding in Austin!


2- Friday Confession

I have friends with fine taste in books {and wine} – and apparently so does the little Miss. She plays with a group of ardent readers and I was pleasantly surprised to receive this lovely gift {among many others} from one of her BFFs, Master P. The story line isn’t of much substance but the artwork is just amazing. Awe-inspiring. You can also find Jane Eyre, Alice in Wonderland, and Romeo and Juliet in this collection of Baby Lit hardcover books.

Yes, I am the last person on earth to read Pride & Prejudice. I also have not seen Pretty Woman, Princess Bride, or Wedding Crashers. There, I feel so much better.


3- Bride Spotlight

I received this very lovely Save the Date yesterday. Don’t you just adore the organic feel, clean and modern lines and rich colors of the wonderful design? So tastefully done. I can’t wait to see all the details this savvy couple will bring together for their big day!


4- Mini Sessions Returning this Fall

I’m currently working on nailing dates for my mini sessions this fall. Yay! This is perfect for any individuals, couples, or families/groups with camera shy members or young children who might not last 60-90 minutes for my typical portrait session.  Included is a 25-minutes of unlimited capture, online gallery for viewing, sharing and ordering, your choice of three high-resolution images and a release which will allow you full rights to printing, ordering Christmas cards, and pursuing crafts on Pinterest. Each spot is $75 and availability is limited, so if you want to go ahead and get your name on the list or would like more information, feel free to leave a note!


5- More Cheese Less Whine

Looking forward to some girl time this weekend with my ladies. Henri’s Cheese and Wine, Swifts Attic, Haddington’s. Endless possibilities..


6- The Funeral of Black Dresses in the Day Along with My Disappearing Waistline

For the second week in a row, I finish getting dressed for swim class and proceed to gather our belongings when my offended toddler barks, “No, Mommy, don’t wear that dress. Please take off!” Of course it is met by laughter, to which she responds by attempting to remove said article of clothing. I had intended to snap a photo of my offensive swimsuit cover, but after taking this photo of Miss T in her new swimsuit for her Aunties, my fancy camera received a phone call and I faultlessly let it slip my mind.


7- Notwithstanding Little Person Commands

Without giving away too much, here’s an update on my video bio. I began this project over a year ago, then it managed to fall apart and my very talented friends came to the rescue and revamped it completely. Stay tuned.

Happy Friday! Xo
