Spring is Here!

I always know when spring is here b/c my calendar starts to fill up. I have an exciting month ahead of me...old friends coming to visit, my birthday, my first magazine cover shoot, lots of other shoots, a trip to Detroit to speak, a trip to Vegas to relax...or go crazy and then Easter! So, this past weekend was another great shoot with a very fun family in the hood...The Folliards. Their girls were so cute and very cooperative. I just had a lovely time photographing them and we got some really great shots of their family. They actually purchased this photo shoot as a silent auction item that I donated for JD Hartman fundraiser. I will be donating a little something different this year again at the fundraiser this year so if you're going to it this month you may want to bid. Plus, it's for a great cause to help raise money for JD. Check out the Folliards!

Hey Blogger Buddies!

I've been MIA lately on this little blog...I'm going to try and do a bit better. I've got some fun stuff in the works so stay posted. I did just find this business card in my car as I was cleaning things up and wanted to pass this along. My friend, Keili, had bought these shirts from Flyduds on Etsy and used them in her kids shoot and I just loved the way they turned out. Again, I like passing along fun ideas b/c everyone is always asking, "What should we wear for our shoot?" This is a great idea, very fun and colorful for those who love something different.

Talk to you all soon!

Watch Out Kim Kardashian...There's A New Girl In Town!

Desiree and her mom drove in from El Campo, TX to shoot Desiree's senior photos. We loaded up in my car and just started driving. I knew she had some colorful outfits and a super sassy purple dress so we were on a mission to find some really great locations. Downtown happened to be much busier on a Sat. than normal...which made trying to park a little tougher...there was some festival going on which is another reason why I love this town. We managed to find some alley ways with good texture and an awesome wall mural that went PERFECT with her flower shirt she had on. Our second destination I guess was pretty close to the homeless shelter and it was getting close to dinner time so there were quite a few people walking down the alley we were in. They all asked for money and when I told them I didn't have any cash on me (which was the truth) they all wanted their picture taken instead...the one guy wanted his with Desiree. She was a good sport and I think had quite an experience for this being her first visit to Austin! Her photos came out adorable and in my book she can give Kim Kardashian a run for her money. :)
