Dusin & Robin Wedding | Austin, Texas | Life Austin Chapel

I had the great opportunity to photograph Dustin and Robin's wedding on a gorgeous, sunny Friday afternoon at the end of October in Austin. The day could not have been more perfect. They chose @LifeAustinChapel to have their ceremony and it is a beautiful chapel that sits on the edge of the hill country. The chapel sits on a large piece of land that is dotted with lots of oak trees and whispy, golden grass. Upon arrival, I snuck into the bridal suite to get some shots of the girls getting ready curling their hair and doing finishing touches to their makeup. All was calm and bright which is always a good sign. I dashed over to the groom's suite to get Dustin putting his finishing touches on with bow tie shots and the guys attempting to put the Boutonnières on which was very cute. The ceremony ran seamlessly and was really beautiful. After the ceremony, we photographed the families together and then had to do a few of Dustin and Robin alone outside with that fall hill country scenery. Their love shines through on all the photos and I love photographing love! After we finished the photos, it was time to get the party started so we headed to the reception @Eberly. Everyone turned it up a notch at the reception and the fun was had by all! The room was filled with friends, family, laughter, dancing and drinking. A perfect ending to a perfect day.

Lifestyle Sibling Shoot | Bali & Dylan | Downtown Austin, TX

I've been photographing these little nuggets since practically their birth. They have grown into such beautiful, sweet teenagers and I love photographing them every year. The name and age tshirts have become a tradition and we joke about at what year they'll out grow them but not this year! This year I love how the red, black and white tshirts pop off of the black and white mural down at Seaholm and mixed right in with the giant red and white picnic table down there, too. After they changed into their dressier outfits, you know we had to utilize the mini 360 bridge at sunset! It's definitely a challenge to get that shot on a Saturday late afternoon in November. There was a line for all the families doing fall photos to be photographed. Grab your glass of vino and snack and kick back and watch Bali and Dylan's music video.

Blake + Karissa | Austin TX Surprise Wedding Proposal | Lou Neff Point

Oh my goodness! This was so exciting to be a part of! Blake and I worked out all the details before hand to try and make this proposal perfect for Karissa. I felt like an under cover agent working on a top secret project with this surprise proposal. Originally, he had wanted to propose to her at Zilker Park because that is where they first told each other that they loved each other (cue the kleenex). Unfortunately, ACL threw a kink in our plan and Zilker Park was still fenced off from all the concert festivities so he made a plan B to do it at Lou Neff Point. Lou Neff Point is where Ladybird Lake and Barton Springs meet and there's a nice look out with an amazing view of the city. We met earlier in the week to work out our parking situation (thank you @Chuy's) and time the walk over to the point! On the day of, I arrived earlier and got situated in my hidden spot behind an electric pole and apparently some poison ivy, too. Eek. I made sure to clear the people out of the area a few minutes before they arrived. I didn't want anything to spoil this proposal. I moved about 6-8 people out of the way...crackin' that whip! I think they all went and sat up above to view the whole thing. :)) Blake and Karissa arrived right on time and as they walked over Blake gave me a side eye to check to make sure I was ready. Karissa had no idea and he took her over to the spot with the perfect view of Austin behind them and proceeded to pour his heart out and get down on one knee. It was SO exciting especially when Karissa said yes. All the strangers up above that were secretly watching the proposal happen from afar started cheering loudly when Karissa said yes. I hopped out of the bushes and moved closer to get some up close shots. So, without further adieu grab a pumpkin spiced latte and kick back and watch their sweet, sweet proposal.

Lifestyle Senior Shoot | Caden | Austin High

I photographed Caden downtown @Butler Park for his senior session and he knocked it out of the park. Haha! Pun intended. As the sun started to set, we walked over to the Lamar bridge and got some really good shots of him there. He had a little bit of a James Dean vibe happening. Kick back and check out his video.

Theyyyy'rrreee Baaaaacccckkk | The Fletchers This Year Starring Tigerhawk | Austin Lifestyle Family Photography

It's that time of year again when the kids go back to school, the leaves slowly fall from the trees, my family's start to think about their holiday cards and family photo shoots and schedule their annual photos. I love it. I'm always amazed when the kids come rolling up each year and they've grown so much since the year before. This year one of my all time favorite family's arrived and their energetic younger son, Grayson, showed up with his hair in a faux hawk and deemed himself a Tigerhawk. He gave us lots of tiger rawrs and paws through out the shoot. They always keep me on my toes! It was a lively shoot as always with this year containing a bit of dad/son wrestling on the Capitol floors to climbing trees and acting like sloths. So, you better grab yourself a frothy coffee and treat and kick back and watch this cute little video filled with loads of character. Meet The Fletchers! :)

Austin Lifestyle Family shoot | The Roberts

It was my first time photographing this beautiful family. I was referred to them by The Fletchers who is one of my most fun families to photograph so I knew right from the start that we were going to get along great. Aaaaand, they knocked it out of the ballpark. We met down at Seaholm and took advantage of the great weather and places to shoot. Their kiddos are off the chart cute and participated during the shoot like champs. I was immediately reminded how much I love 4 year olds! It was one of my most favorite stages of when my son was growing up. Their personalities and independence start shining through but they're still so small that you just want to squeeze them. Grab your glass of vino and a snack and kick back and enjoy the Roberts video.

Austin Lifestyle Family Shoot | The Ferraras | October 2022

Another beautiful fall day and another great photo shoot of Dr. Mai and her boys! I can't believe how big the boys are getting but I say that of every family that I see once a year. We shot at the trains off of 290 and once the boys started climbing on the railings then we actually got some smiles eeking out. Give the boys some stuff to climb on during a photo shoot and then suddenly they don't mind to be photographed. Grab your pumpkin spice latte and kick back and enjoy the Ferraras sweet video.

Bali | Senior 2023 | Vista Ridge High School

So, it's been a minute since I've posted anything here but the fall photo season has arrived and is in full swing. To get back in the swing of posting shoots on here, there is no better way to start than with Bali! I've been photographing this stunner since she was a wee one and she just keeps getting more gorgeous every time I see her. The shoot was filled with cute outfit changes, jewelry changes, hair and make up touch ups and lugging a black leather chair across the park to get our amazing skyline shot of her! Let's talk about her overalls...these are just the cutest things that I've ever seen! Luckily, they had just gotten picked up from the artist that day of our shoot so luck was in our favor. Apparently, they're somewhat of a homecoming tradition at Vista Ridge high school and I think I love them more than the giant Texas mums tradition! LOL! Grab a sweet treat and an iced coffee and kick back and enjoy Bali's senior video.

Lifestyle Senior Shoot | Ivan | Barton Springs Road

Oh my gosh...this shoot!!! Thank goodness Ivan was super laid back and easy going. We had planned to have his shoot along Barton Springs Road and utilize some of the fun colors and textures on a Tuesday night. All should be calm and all should be bright however who knew that they changed Blues on the Green from Wednesday night to Tuesday night?! We had a rude awakening when we arrived down there and a bazillion people are walking, biking, scootering to get over to Zilker and it was an udder mad house. I had gone a bit early and found parking in the garage but the place got busier by the time Ivan and his mom arrived so she just dropped him and went to try and find parking. This post is going to be how amazing Ivan did during his shoot and how terrible of a company ATX Towing is...please do NOT ever use this company. They are running a terrible racket. So, the shoot with Ivan goes great and he's tuning out all the cars and people walking and driving by and we got fabulous photos of him which you'll see in his video. Long story longer, Ivan's mom parked at the back of Starbucks coffee with a bunch of other vehicles, walked away from her truck for no more than 20 minutes to walk over and pick Ivan up and when they got back to her truck it was gone...towed. They assumed she was going to Blues on the Green event and wouldn't be back until 10-11pm and they towed her truck while Starbucks was still open. Total racket and the owner of the towing company was terribly rude. I took her and her son straight down to ATX Towing to pick up her truck and the owner had said to give him 15 minutes and he'd be there. He made us wait over an hour while he finished his drink/dinner hoping that we would leave that night and she'd have to pick up her truck later. Once he arrived, he shut the gate in my face and wouldn't allow me to walk in with Alma & Ivan and told me that I wasn't allowed in there. I guess he thought I had SASS written all over my face. Now, it's 10pm and he made them sit in his office and wait some more while he laughed and talked on the phone...terrible customer service, terrible man. He proceeded to charge Alma $242 for towing. The Google reviews are spot on with this racket that they have going on. I feel like this is definitely something that @KVUEnews Defenders need to investigate. Enough of my soapbox, let's get to the good stuff with Ivan's video. Grab an Eastciders and some chips and hummus and kick back and watch Ivan's video.

Aaron's Surprise 40th Birthday | Meanwhile Brewery | Austin, TX

What a fun lil' shindig documenting Aaron's 40th surprise birthday party! He was apparently on Dad duty that day while Mama went to "run errands". Secretly, a large crew were behind the scenes decorating the party room with balloons, photos, personalized koozies and kolaches shaped like a bike! When a friend conveniently called him and invited him out for an afternoon beer/playdate with the kids at a nearby brewery Aaron agreed. Thank goodness! :) When they arrived at the brewery, everyone was in place with confetti bombs in their hands. He strolled in casually pushing the baby carriage with a mile wide smile on his face. The confetti bombs spewed colorful bits and sparkle while a big "Surprise!" and laughter filled the room. I think he was pleasantly surprised to see so many of his good friends and loved ones there to celebrate him. Grab yourself a cold one and kick back, relax and enjoy the surprise.

25th Wedding Anniversary Shoot | Brendan + Summer | Sekrit Theater

Oh my goodness! Do you know what I love so so much? To see a couple SO in love after 25 years of marriage together. What a sweet treat to see a couple who respects each other, gets along, laughs together, helps each other and are still best friends. Summer and Brendan have made it through some big hurdles in life together and I loved being able to capture yet another great milestone for them ...a very happy milestone I must say. Three cheers for 25 years of marriage! We had an amazing photo shoot at the Sekrit Theater which I think was the perfect, dreamy background for this shoot. Summer wore her mom's vintage wedding dress in a few of the photos at the beginning of the shoot and then changed into her own wedding dress that she wore 25 years ago! How many people can do that?! Definitely not me! Grab a cup of hot tea and a cookie and kick back and enjoy their sweet, sweet video.

Austin Texas Senior Photos 2022 | Cami | Bowie High School

We are wrapping up the end of the senior season with a slam dunk photo shoot of Cami. She was a bit apprehensive about the photo shoot and was mainly fulfilling her mom's wish of taking senior photos but I have to say this girl is on fire! She participated in the shoot with some coaxing and then the next thing I know I felt like I had a cover model in front of me. Her big brown eyes are so expressive and she's just a natural beauty that photographs really well. Grab a bubbly Topo Chico and some cheetohs and kick back and enjoy Cami's video.

Twins Senior Photo Shoot | Chris & Sammie | Bowie High School

What a fun shoot with twins Chris and Sammie. You would never know that our photo shoot took place at Gorzycki Middle School. We utilized the beautiful green trees, white flowers and wooden fence with a blurred out chicken coop in the background. Who would've thought? They have both knocked it out of the park with their high school career and now it's off to Baylor in the fall for college. I put the song "Glory Days" in their music video and thought the lyrics were perfect. Not only did they get to experience their high school years together but now they get to experience their college years together, too. The glory days and memories will continue on for these siblings. Grab a beverage and yummy snack and sit back and relax and check out Chris and Sammie's video.

Lifestyle Senior Shoot 2022 | Addie | Bowie High School

Oh what a shoot! I had a fabulous time photographing Addie. She showed up and worked every angle of the camera. I love when I have willing participants who are ready and WANT to be photographed. Pease Park didn't let us down either. The art installation with the blue trees just made for a super cool back drop and went perfect with her little blue dress! You'd think maybe we planned that or something! Grab your vino and some cheese and crackers and kick back and enjoy Addie's video.

Senior Portrait Shoot | Caroline | Bowie High School

I had a wonderful senior photo shoot with Caroline at Laguna Gloria -The Contemporary Austin a few weeks ago. She came with outfits in hand and ready to be photographed. She started the shoot in a black floral dress with a heart neckline that popped off of the greenery and European architecture. Once we moved inside to "the room" with the black and white checked floor and teal blue couch, she wore a classic white top and jeans with pearl heels that just looked so cute on her. She ended the photo shoot sporting her college tshirt where she will be attending in the fall...PRINCETON!!! How about that? I think it's pretty fabulous myself. :) Kick back, relax and check out Caroline's sweet video.

Lifestyle Senior Shoot | Luke | Bowie High School

Had so much fun shooting this one! Luke was a true trooper and went along for the ride. His mom and I thought it would be fun to highlight the things that he loves in his senior shoot and that includes working at Alamo Drafthouse and playing video games. I thought it would be fun to shoot his photos in a vintage arcade but we all know the lighting would be dark so we opted for the carnival instead and the light was gorgeous! :) Luke has moved 10 times in his 12 years of school because his dad is in the military so we gotta hand it to this kid for walking into Bowie High School as a new student his senior year and he said this is probably his favorite move out of all of them. With a positive attitude like that he's going to definitely hit green lights all the way! Kick back and grab a bologne sandwich and diet dew and watch Luke's video.

Texas A&M Senior 2022 Shoot | Karissa | A&M Campus College Station

I might've teared up a bit making this sweet video of Karissa. It seems like yesterday her and her mom were in Austin to do her senior photos for high school. You can see that blog post with her hs senior shoot here. Here we are four years later and she has rocked her time at Texas A & M. Not only has she kept a 4.0 gpa her entire college career but is also Chief Madam Justice of the Campus.Not only is she smart and driven but she is also the cutest, sweetest, kindest college kid that I've ever met...sorry son, this one is giving you a run for your money.:) Her mom and I are still trying to figure out how we created such AMAZING responsible children. LOL! If they could have only seen their mothers growing up, they'd wonder the same. I drove into College Station a few weekends ago and they gave me the full tour of A & M campus which I was super excited about because I had only been to College Station a few times to photograph crappy apartment buildings that were going up for sale. They gave me a fantastic tour of the town and we hit ALL the spots to get photographed for your senior photos on campus! I knew A & M was full of traditions but WOW I didn't realize how many traditions they have. It's pretty cool, I must admit! We had a blast the entire weekend and they even took me to Northgate and I went to The Chicken! I do believe our mission was accomplished with the completion of this photo shoot. Karissa rocked her shoot and thank goodness we didn't have near the wind that we had for her high school senior shoot! That was crazy town. I love watching our kids grow up and seeing what their future holds but it also makes me very emotional at the same time because time is screaming by. Anyway, grab yourself a snack (maybe some chicken) and a tissue and kick back and enjoy Karissa's video.

Lifestyle Senior Shoot | Madeleine | Bowie High School

Oh my goodness! I can't believe I photographed Madeleine in 7th grade when she got her braces off and now she's a SENIOR in high school graduating in a few months! Time keeps screaming right by and it seems like these kiddos are growing up overnight on me. We incorporated a tiny family shoot along with her senior photos into an all in one deal and it worked out perfectly. We met at Butler Park late in the afternoon on the Monday of spring break and holy smokes the park was packed. I really wasn't expecting it to be THAT busy but we managed to find pockets of the park that wasn't too crowded and popped off some super cute photos. I'm in love with Madeleine's white sequin dress against the white and silver cityscape. Grab yourself a mocha latte and cinnamon toast and kick back and check out their video.

Lifestyle Senior Shoot | Cassie | Austin High School

I had such a fun shoot with Cassie and her mom right after Christmas. We met downtown and bounced around to a few different spots for a little variety. Cassie loves books and is an avid reader so we wanted to incorporate part of her shoot at the library. I was super excited to shoot at the downtown library which I had never done before. They took me up to the outdoor top deck which had some great views of other nearby tall buildings with great texture and utilized some of the fun, colorful poofs and outdoor furniture out there. Cassie looked so cute and rocked her senior shoot like a natural. Kick back and take a look at her music video.

Lifestyle Senior Guy Twins Shoot | Chase & Ethan | Hyde Park High School | Downtown Austin

Sappy video alert! I need to tell you now that you might want to get your tissue ready for this one. I photographed these twin boys a few times when they were little and ended up incorporating a few of the old photos into this video. The song that I chose just gets me every time! This one goes out to Mama because I know she's been emotional about thinking about the boys leaving the nest so sorry Kristi this video might put you over the edge. :))) Years ago, I offered a mini shoot special downtown near the rail road tracks at 3rd and Bowie. I used the City of Austin smoke stacks in the background and photographed the families next to the train tracks for an awesome urban setting. Fast forward about ten years to today, as I'm parking my car downtown on 3rd Street to photograph these boys it just hit me that we were in the same place for their senior shoot as we were for their mini shoot years ago! Only now, the smoke stacks are partly covered up by tall buildings and the train tracks are blocked off by chain link fences and there's a ton of new businesses AND a zillion people around. Needless to say, it was a bit surreal seeing how much the boys have grown as well as the location where we were shooting. Grab your vanilla latte and bagel and kick back and enjoy Chase and Ethan's video. Turn the volume up and grab your tissue because you're going to need it.

Happy New Year! Cheers to 2022!

While there were a few good moments in 2021, there was plenty of moments that weighed me down and left me feeling heavy with the energy sucked out of me. Anyone else? I'm ready to put 2021 behind me and only look forward at this point. This year, I'm opening myself and my big ol' heart up to love, travel, success and bettering myself to be a better version of me! I'm not big into new years resolutions but I wrote a few intentions down and I will be working on bettering my body with more exercise, dancing and weight lifting. I'll be bettering my brain with setting a goal of getting my drone license and I'll be bettering my soul with taking more time for prayer, meditation and bible study. How about a HUGE toast...Let's open our hearts and minds and receive 2022 with a giant bear hug and let's celebrate that 2021 is behind us. What about you? Have you set any goals or intentions for the new year? I'd love to hear them, if so.
