  • Hello, there! Thank you for visiting. I'm a photographer based out of Austin, Texas. I specialize in personalized family portrait sessions. 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 Stooksberry Family – Spring Portrait Session

Due to rain delays, the bluebonnets were no longer around for the Stooksberry’s Spring Portrait Session. Luckily the blanket flowers were in full fielded bloom when we rescheduled. Cori, Daniel and Jacob (age 5) enjoyed exploring Balcones District Park – from the wildflowers to the creek.

Please enjoy this sneak peek of their Spring Portrait session. To see all the photos and purchase prints from their session click HERE.

Carsyn & Heather – Spring Portrait Session

We’ve been waiting out the rain and keeping an eye on the spring blooms – but it finally all came together. I met Carsyn & Heather early in the morning at Brushy Creek Community Center for their Spring Portrait Session. We counted “sugar bees,” watched the koi fish, and did some twirling (Carsyn in her tutu – had the advantage in that activity).

heather gandy - As usual, unbelievably beautiful photos!!!! I am constantly blown away at how you capture the perfect moment. 🙂 Thank you!

The Linden Family – Spring Portrait Session

I’m happy to share with you the Linden Family photo session held at Brushy Creek Community Center.

So even if your kid throws up in the car on the way to your originally scheduled portrait session, then it’s thundering and lighting on your rescheduled date, and you’re texting with your photographer at 4:12am that morning: you can still get lemonade out of your photo session.

And speaking of lemons, I love the bright yellows here that contribute to this happy, playful Spring session. Thank you, Carter, for your curiosity and joy. Thank you, Lila, for your sparkle and willingness to help.

Camp Mabry Pond – Location Scouting

You can live in Austin for over 20 years and still find spots in the city you’ve never been to. Now – I’ve visited the Camp Mabry track – but little did I know until another mom told me – that there’s also a pond to visit there. And as we were pulling up, we got to see some Boy Scouts packing up their tents to head out. The boys were hopeful to find some ducks to share their bread – but ended up eating most of the slices themselves 🙂

And if you go out next Saturday, it’s the Touch-a-Truck event!
