  • 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.

Max at Mill Pond

A friend and old co-worker recommended we check out Mill Pond in Wells Branch. After following Max around the trails and on and off the docks, I was sold. Lots of room for toddler-types to run about, a nice variety of backgrounds for photos (trees! water! rocks!) and not crowded either. I hope to be back there a lot this Fall.

The Hoke Family – portrait and maternity session

You may remember this delightful family – from either Aaron’s first birthday photos, his 6 month portrait session or their most recent holiday photos. Well this time around I was happy to also document Baby #2-to-be (it’s a girl!)

Braving high humidity and avoiding countless ant piles, we explored the loop behind Central Market, with stops to feed the ducks – taking photos all the way.

Please enjoy this sneak peek. To see all the photos and purchase prints from their session: click here. And when dealing with toddlers, in the spirit of – “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” – check out my favorite outtake as well.

Kristin, Paul, Harper and Camille

Say hello to Kristin, Paul, Harper and Camille – last seen here from their mini-portrait session in 2012. For their family portrait session this year, we went to the Texas Capitol.

Switching between summer dresses and tutus, the girls were great sports running over the grass and climbing up and down the stairs. Paul kept us all laughing (and stocked with jelly beans) while Kristin made sure we had everything we needed.
