The S. Family – Spring Portrait Session

Cori, Daniel and 6-year-old Jacob met me out at Katherine Fleischer Park for their Spring portrait session. It’s a great spot in North Austin with the historical Gault Homestead. We went exploring and talked about Legos, light sabers and lost teeth.

Nursery Rhymes with a Twist – Photo Workshop

Can you spot the Three Blind Mice, Little Boy Blue, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Little Miss Muffet, Jack and Jill, and Jack jumped over the candlestick?

If so, it’s thanks to Color Inc, Sally Kate Photography and Chubby Cheek Photography for the large dose of inspiration, styled sets, creative editing and heartfelt advice I got this week. I’m excited to share my favorite pics from their Nursery Rhyme themed shoot out at Star Hill Ranch. Wardrobe from Rainey’s Closet.

Now who else wants to go play dress-up outside this Spring?

Max & Miles – Painting a Rocket Ship

After reading a school book about monkeys who eat bananas with their feet, Max was inspired to paint his backyard rocket ship the same way. And faster than you can say, “monkey see, monkey do” – Miles loved that idea & both boys were more covered in paint than the original cardboard box.

If any families would like a similar “messy” type of session for their portraits, please let me know. We can paint or throw color powder, chalk or use shaving cream. Starting of course with the clean “before” shots 😉

Harry Jackson - The color seems to edited which makes the scenario too colored. Good work though and great caption, keep up the good work
