  • 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.

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.

Jasmine - The little one has beautiful eyes. I wish I had fields like the one in your photo where I live. It adds a lot of texture and dimension to your images. Jasmine Photography

Max & Miles – Neighborhood Bluebonnets

There’s a tiny patch of bluebonnets in an empty lot down our street. We walked over last night to check it out. The boys had little interest in the bluebonnets themselves – only by asking them to count them was I able to get a few pics. Instead, Max wanted to build a “campfire” with all the branches around. And Miles liked the pink wildflowers better.

Truman – Spring Portrait Session

What a great kid! It’s been a treat watching Truman grow up – photographing him nearly every Spring. And this year was no different. Minecraft, new puppy and upcoming birthday plans – all topics of conversation that made for easy smiles again and again.

Max and Miles – Butler Park

We took the boys to Butler Park this morning to run around. And run they did: up the hill, down the hill, tag, duck/duck/goose. I was able to slow them down a few times to get some portraits. At the end, Max lay down in the path and declared himself too exhausted to walk to the car. So…success.

Gwparker - Love the B&W of the boy getting ready to do what appears to be a handstand! :)
