My Fall Photo Special!

Hey everyone, I'm offering my "Mixing It Up Is Merrier" special again. $50 for a 30 minute mini photo session! This year there are a few twists. I'm offering ALOT more slots during the late afternoon week days in late September to accomadate more families and a couple new interesting locations as well. I'll be posting proofs in a secure online gallery for viewing and ordering. My deadline for ordering is November 15th this year. I know it seems early but this allows time for both of us to be more organized this year with our holiday festivities. This is a great time to get some good family shots for your Christmas cards and gifts. Check out some of my new Christmas cards, too (just scroll down a bit)! They're really colorful and cute.

Back to School

It seems hard to believe that it's time for school again. While I love summer probably more than the average person, I have to say I like getting back into a regular routine during the school year. My baby started the 2nd grade and all you moms out there know that it just seems like yesterday we were bringing them home from the hospital. I did get a bit teary eyed yesterday after I dropped Slobo off BUT not for long...I was off like a mad woman conquering the running errands world. I vacuumed the car, went to the carwash, bank, Walgreens, 2 Wal-Marts, Target and Toys R Us. Whew! This goes out to all the mamas out there sending their babies to school on their first day. Oh, Sloan wants to know how many compliments he has gotten so leave him a comment! :)

Holly & Erik's Wedding

This is the wedding that we hauled rear across 5 states for...Holly & Erik. It was a very fun wedding in Atlanta, GA. The wedding was at a beautiful Catholic church with THE funniest, young priest I've ever met. And, the reception was at the Fernbank which is the Natural History Museum. It was so cool! While we ate our dinner and danced the night away there were 2 prehistoric dinosaurs lingering over us the whole night. Congrats to Holly and Erik. I hope they have a life filled with lots of love and laughter.

Warning:This Is What Can Happen On A 5 State Roadrip

A few weeks ago, we loaded up the minivan and drove across 5 states to get to one of our dear friend's wedding in Atlanta. We all know that the time can pass slowly at times. Well, we rely on scanning the radio alot and here's what can happen... By the way, I never said I COULD sing. I said I LIKED to sing. My favorite part is where I add in the fingersnaps toward the end. This clarifies that once a cornball always a cornball. Oh, and look how cute my sassy new haircut looks. :)Stay tuned for some cute photos from the wedding, too.

Cool New Product!

So, I've been working behind the scenes at Brandi Nellis Photography to come up with some cool new products and print sizes to offer. I have found this classic leather accordian album that holds 12 4x6 prints and makes for a great gift for dad's office or for the grandparents. The price of the leather accordian album...$85, the photos of loved ones inside...priceless! Ha! My poor attempt at advertising. Anyway, check them out below.

Our Little Trio

I recruited my crazy friend Jeff (who's also a photographer) to take some photos of our family b/c...well, we don't have very many. Jeff did a good job considering he's not used to photographing families...usually just hot male models. Man, having family photos done is chaotic people! The final product turned out cute but it took alot of work to get those AND it never fails that Jeff seems to always take our photos when it's 200 degrees outside with no wind. You can check out more of his work at Here's a few good ones...

The Walkers Walk Away From Texas

I photographed THE sweetest family this past week before they move to Arkansas. They wanted to preserve some memories in their home here in Austin and I think we did just that. We got some great shots of the family in front of their home and then some really fun shots of them all playing and running around in the backyard. I wish them well on their new journey they are embarking on.
