  • 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 Hoke Family – Summer Portrait Session

When rain and sickness pushed our Spring Portrait Session into a Summer Portrait Session, the Hoke Family were great sports. They explored trails, climbed trees, didn’t want to come down from trees and happily we never lost the balloon.

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

Max & Miles with Chalk + Rain

1. It was Max’s idea (of course)

2. It’s a mixture of ground up sidewalk chalk and recent rainfall

3. “Thanks for letting us get messy, Mom” – after the second indoor shower necessary to wash chalk bits from hair and ears

4. “You’re just letting them do this to get some photos” –Ted Mentele

5. Pretty much

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.

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).
