  • 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.

Emma Long Metropolitan Park – Location Information

I was curious about Emma Long City Park. Would it work well for a family portrait session or just be a fun place to take the boys to play?

So we took the boys out one weekend morning – and I managed to get a few pictures before the thunderstorm rolled in. They enjoyed the small patch of “beach,” walking out on the docks, and just seeing how many campers were out as well.

If you have kids who like the water (and are old enough to be trusted to walk on the docks) – it’s a pretty site to visit (or be photographed in.) It costs $10/car on the weekend ($5/car weekdays) – though there’s a trail you can access for free before you get to the River. We’ll save that hike for our next visit…

Carsyn – Bluebonnet Portrait Session

It was a cold and misty morning. Rather than waiting out the sun (and not sure how much longer the blue blooms would last) -we headed to Balcones District Park and their large patch of flowers this past weekend. Carsyn was a great sport! She told me all about her new hamster, Abbey – and her favorite movies – and just smiled and smiled.

Please enjoy this sneak peek of her bluebonnet portrait session. To see all the photos and purchase prints from her session: click HERE.
