  • Hello, there! Thank you for visiting. I'm a photographer based out of Austin, Texas. I'm available for any type of portrait session: maternity, newborn, child, senior, family, or pet. Please take a look around to get an idea of my work. I'm here to capture your story. It's your life, up-close.

The Ricci Family – Holiday Portrait Session

Say hello to Jennifer, Audrey and Patrick. Jennifer is the friend who first told me about Mill Pond – which now has been home to many family portrait sessions this holiday season. (Thanks for the insider Wells Branch tip!) If you know of a scenic gem in your neighborhood, please pass it on.

While we were there, Audrey was glad to go exploring – climbing over rocks, collecting acorns and sticks and wanting to greet all the dogs going by. And that adorable hat – can we all just exclaim how 1920s wonderful she looks!

Woods & Family – Holiday Portrait Session

Woods & Family were a treat to photograph – we climbed all around Butler Park last weekend. Woods kept us entertained between wanting to swing on willow tree vines like Spiderman – then keeping an eye out for alligators in the pond (phew – I think we’re safe). Then we ended the session with him showing us his soccer moves HERE.

Max & Miles at Mayfield Park – plus bonus Halloween

We went to Mayfield Park last weekend to check out their trails. I know the Park charges a fee if you want to do a professional photo session there, but I don’t believe that includes the trails (just the Cottage Gardens). And the trails themselves have lots of great photogenic spots, especially for a small group – since the wildflowers are taking over the path in several places. Though you may find yourself, like I did, having to climb up a tree after a little one goes a bit too high on their own. We sighted 6 of their 18 peacocks when we did head over to the Cottage Gardens. And the Park Ranger was so thoughtful and let Max feed the koi fish in the pond, to everyone’s delight.

And Happy (early) Halloween! Here’s 10 month old Miles as the Itsy Bitsy Spider.

The Sorensen Family – Holiday Portrait Session

With all the wide open spaces at the Barton Hills Pumpkin Patch to explore, we had a great family session. We checked out the corn maze, went down by the water and ended the morning as pumpkin heads (here). Larke was a ray of sunshine running from spot to spot until we hit upon the sandbox boat where she was content to stay, dig and play.
