ATX LIfestyle Family Shoot Video | The Uzzles Rock Downtown Austin

I had so much photographing the Uzzles and watching the boys get so excited to see the metro train run back and forth on the tracks. We went for a bit more urban vibe on their shoot and headed to the east side to accomplish that. Turn your music up and sit back and watch their cute video.

Fine Art America Storefront | My Beach Photos are for Sale!

Hi all! I'm super excited to announce that I've open a storefront at Fine Art America to sell some of my beach photos on products! I've had to get really creative during this Covid-19 lock down and I had a good friend, Shawn Vincelette, recommend that I set up a storefront here. I'm going to try and feature different products of mine that would make great art work to hang in your house, home decor items to freshen up stale spaces or great gifts for family and friends. Today's feature product is my pom pom pillow! Let's brighten up the couch for summer with some cheerful pillows. It's an easy and low expense way to freshen up your living room or even better the kids play room. Don't you LOVE it? You can purchase pillow here!

ATX Senior 2020 Video | LASA High School | Vaughan

I'm so glad we were able to get Vaughan's senior shoot finished before all the shelter in place restrictions happened. This particular shoot is another one that hits me right in the gut because I've known this guy since he was a baby. Vaughan was in the same playgroup as my son so I've watched this guy grow up since he was just a tiny nugget. It's going to be exciting to see what this guy does with his life. He's one smart dude! I think he was doing multiplacation tables at two years old. Haha! I had a great time photographing him and we had some good laughs during the shoot. We incorporated the Austin transit bus system in his shoot because he used to be an avid bus rider and "master of the bus schedule" before he had his license. During the shoot, he still recognized the bus numbers and was telling his mom and I a few of the busses schedules and routes. Then, we headed down the road to the 512 Brewery and got some pretty cool shots of him on some dead end train tracks with his Mac book sporting his UT Dallas shirt where he'll be attending in the fall (hopefully)! The hopefully is for students getting to return to campuses in the fall not hopefully that he'll get accepted. He's already been accepted! Haha! Our last portion of the shoot was a bit more colorful and we had a great time shooting at Ion Art where he sported his LASA shirt from high school. Thanks to the guys from Ion Art who saw us shooting after hours and came back over to turn on the neon sign for us! That's what I love about Austin! I wish it would've been a bit darker out side to see the drama of the signs but they still looked cool in our photos as is. Grab a morning mocktail or a healthy smoothie and kick back and enjoy Vaughan's senior shoot video. Wishing this guy the absolute best to his exciting future.

ATX Senior 2020 Video | St. Michael's Academy | Jack

Like all business right now we're all adapting. We're in the midst of our shelter in place so I'm no longer able to see clients and do in studio photo viewings so I'm posting their videos here on the blog so clients don't have to wait to see their photos. I'm so happy I photographed Jack before all the Covid restrictions happened. We got some great shots of him on his high school's property and brand new football/lacrosse field which looks absolutely amazing. I know this year is a tough year for the class of 2020 which makes it even more important to document this senior year during this historical time in our world. Grab your quarantine drink (which most likely has alcohol in it;)) and some chips and dip and kick back and watch this awesome video of Jack!

ATX Lifestyle Family Shoot | The Uzzles

As a photographer (and a parent), it's always entertaining for me to hear what the parent has set "the bribe" to be to their kids to participate and "be good" during the photo shoot. Some are lavish gifts and some are as simple as an m& m. In this case, we were about 3/4 of the way through the photo shoot and the boys were getting restless and all it took was one reminder that after the shoot they'd be rewarded with... MILKSHAKES!!! In the very first photo you see below is the kids reaction when Mom and Dad mentioned milkshakes. The boys were back in 100% ready to finish the shoot so they could get that reward. Their reactions are priceless. :) Zack gave this photo shoot to his wife as a Christmas gift and then we waited until spring when it warmed up and nature came to life to do their shoot. What a great idea, right?! This is the gift that keeps on giving...forever! Grab your milkshake and some fries (goes together like peanut butter and chocolate to me!) and kick back and scroll through some fun shots that we captured during our family shoot. #familyphotoshootspb #austinfamilyphotographer #familyphotoshoots #photoshoots #photoshootsession #photoshootstudio #photoshootstyle #photoshootselfie #PhotoshootSoon #photoshootsetup #photoshootsarehard #austinfamily #photoshootstyling #photoshootsunday #photoshoots⠀#photoshootseason #austinfamilylegacy #photoshootstylist #photoshootsuper #photoshootstories #photoshootsomething #photoshootsaretough #photooftheday #family #photo #photoshoot #photos #familytime

ATX Maternity Shoot | Baby 2020

We photographed Mike and Sarah's maternity shoot out at Hamilton Pool a few weeks ago and the weather was just perfect for a mid February day! Sarah was looking adorable in her mustard yellow PinkBlush maternity dress and Mike was decked out in his casual wear. I love that Sarah brought a big sun hat as an added accessory to the shoot. The pool made for a great natural backdrop along with all the large rocks and textures and I was pleasantly surprised that we didn't have to dodge too many people in the park that day. I'm so excited to meet their baby in a few months and photograph the whole family together! Here's a few shots from the session. #maternity #pregnancy #baby #pregnant #newborn #maternityphotography #love #motherhood #maternityshoot #photography #family #babygirl #newbornphotography #babybump #momtobe #momlife #babyboy #maternidad #mom #maternityphotoshoot #babyshower #maternityfashion #maternityphotographer #photographer #bebe #prewedding #newbornphotographer #breastfeeding #mama #hamiltonpool #brandinellisphotography

ATX Engagement Video | Sarah + Mike | Love is in the Air

I'm about to photograph Sarah and Mike this weekend for their maternity shoot and wanted to do a walk down memory lane of their engagement session! Sarah had the balloon made special for their shoot which I thought was just too cute and added an element of fun to their shoot. Grab a crumpet and some tea and sit back and enjoy this sweet video of love.
