Makayla...Hays High School Senior 2018

This beauty was so sweet and fun to photograph. We got some great shots of her in the bluebonnets and then we trudged through the fields and found this old tree that looks like it's been struck by lightning. It made for a great texture in the background of her photos and thank goodness we didn't come across any snakes! Grab a snack and kick back and enjoy Makayla's video. #hayshighschoolsenior2018 #growinup #graduationgirl

Mateo...Austin High Senior 2018

Gosh! I didn't even recognize this guy when he showed up for his senior session. It had been a few years since I had seen him and wouldn't have recognized him if it weren't for his mama being there. These senior sessions are just so important to document this time in your child's life. I know b/c I'm experiencing it, too. My son is a junior this year and we're in the hubbub of getting the SAT test done and starting to look at colleges. Don't wait parents...this is one of THE most important mile stones in your child's life and it's time to be documented. I had so much fun photographing Mateo. He looked so dapper in his sport coat and tie and I LOVED when he wore his mirrored shades in some of the pics. He was a good sport and went along with whatever I suggested. Get your cup of tea and sit back and watch Mateo's video...handsome dude!

Justin Senior 2018

My spring break was filled with lots of senior shoots and I loved every second of it! I can't believe these boys are almost grown. Justin used to live next door to us and play with my son Sloan all the time. I think they moved when the boys were like in 4th or 5th grade so it's always shocking to see them grown when you haven't seen them in awhile. #BowieSenior2018 #BowieHS #Austinphotographer

Karissa's Going Places!!!

I grew up in a teeny tiny town in southeast Missouri and I had this best friend before kindergarten named Stephanie. We went to the same church, were in the same kindergarten class, went to school K-12 and even had EVERY single class together our sophomore year in high school...what are the odds! We went off to different colleges but remained friends through the years. We both ended up in Texas just not the same city. Now here we are YEARS later and she's bringing her daughter who's a senior to Austin so we can do Karissa's senior photos! Eek! We had SO much fun catching up on old times and filling each other in on new things in our lives. And, in the midst of all the laughter we squeezed in one heck of a senior shoot in about 30 mph winds. I have to say Karissa was a REAL trooper b/c these winds were strong and she has very long hair. In many of our photos it looks like we busted out the industrial fans however it was just Mother Nature wreaking havoc on us. ;) I'm so thankful for lifelong friends especially those crazy girls I grew up with from Ironton. There is nothing better than friends who know you inside and out and even when lengths of time pass without seeing/talking to each other you can pick right up where you left off from before. Get yourself a cup of coffee or a glass of wine depending on what time of day it is and sit back and watch this sweet video of Karissa. Karissa is graduating 19th in her class of almost 1000 in Spring, Texas and she's headed off to Texas A&M for college! Like the song says in the video...Go On Girl! #senior2018 #austinseniorphotographer #growingup #lamarunion

Babies Are Growing Up!

I've been photographing these two since they were new borns...yikes I'm getting old! What I love about these yearly photo shoots is that I get to watch these kids grow up right before my very eyes. These two are the absolute sweetest things you could ever imagine. They both welcomed me with a big hug and they're so sweet to each other (at least when I'm around!) and treat each other with respect. They rocked their shoot quickly at Brushy Creek Park and then were rewarded with their Starbucks afterwards! :) Take a look at these beauties! #siblingsshoot #cedarparkphotographer #brushycreekpark #choosekind
