Super Fun Shoot This Morn!

This week was back to the grind with getting the kids back to school which means getting up super early Monday through Friday. When my weekends roll around, I like to try and sleep in a little but NOT this weekend. Yesterday, my son had a football scrimmage in the morning that we had to get up early for and then this morning my bootie was dragging rear up and at em' at 5:45am. I had to be out in Dripping Springs (half hour from my house) at 6:45am! Whew! That's alot to ask from little ol' me but I did it and we had a blast! Here's a few shots from this awesome tee shirt company I'm working for to help them establish their brand using my colorful, fun photography with their fun,beautiful models and unique tees. If you haven't heard of ATXMafia, then you're out of the loop my friend. Check them out...they have THE cutest tees you've ever set your eyes on! I love the one that says, "Genuine, fun lovin', sweet tea drinkin', boot scootin' Southern Girl". As for the 1957 Chevy, it belongs to their cool.

College Bound!

I've gotten to know this family over the past couple of years and they are sending their baby girl off to college now. We had one last family photo shoot before their baby girl moved off to spread her wings and be on her own. They had picked a really cute wall at an Austin hot spot and wanted to get some shots there with the "i love you so much" saying on the wall. This actually makes the photos extra special b/c I know that this is what the 3 of them are all saying to each other in this new phase of life that they are embarking on. I just loved it. I played around with the color and funked it up a bit and overall I was pleased. I really love the last shot though where she is jumping for joy and mom and dad are in the background and well, they just don't seem quite as happy. :)

Waterways Magazine Covers

So, I have photographed two covers now for Waterways Magazine and I can't believe I haven't posted it on my blog. Poor blogs lose out to Facebook now. Even though I've already posted it on FB, I don't want to neglect my poor little blog. It needs some love, too! I feel so honored that the owner of the magazine chose me. She said that she mulled over Austin photographer websites for a few days trying to figure out who would fit what she was looking for...and she picked me! We've had a great time meeting, working together and building these covers for her magazine. I'm just thrilled.

Haley & Matt's Wedding

Finally! I finished the video and I just love it! I actually got teary-eyed watching the video and reliving it. It was 2 solid days of non-stop shooting but it was so fun to capture some different events than the normal wedding. The first night there, I attended the military graduation dinner that was for family only and got some great shots of the actual proposal! The next morning I tagged along with the bride and groom to the county clerk's office to get the marriage license and got some cute shots there. Then, we can't forget the emergency bathroom trip on our way to the wedding ceremony.

Haley (the bride): "Dad, I really have to pee. I can't believe no one reminded me to pee before putting my wedding dress on! Dad, we've got to stop so I can pee! And, I really need something drink. I've got cotton mouth."

Her Dad: "Well Haley, where would you like me to stop? I can't just stop at some random gas station and take you to some dirty bathroom. Would you like me to find a bank or something?

Me: "There's a Chick-fil-A up ahead! They have clean bathrooms and then we can get her a drink, too!"

OMGosh, the Chick-fil-A roared with clapping when she came out of the bathroom and whooped and hollered for her. Even the ice tea was on the house! It was hysterical. All of that to say, it was a one of kind wedding and I enjoyed every sweet moment!
I wish them many happy years you guys!

If You Like It, Then You Shoulda Put a Ring On It!

And that's exactly what he did! A few weeks ago, I headed off to KY for a military wedding. This is the bride's version of what she calls her "Ring Dance". She was very excited to be wearing her engagement ring b/c she hadn't been officially proposed to until the night before the wedding. More great pics to come soon to show off what a cute couple. Until then, please enjoy Haley's "Ring Dance." And, I ask you or did you have a ring dance, too?
