Baby Stella – mini newborn photo session

Welcome to the World, Baby Stella! Mom & baby got some sweet snuggling in while I took a few pictures. Their sunroom made a perfect lightbox, and we even braved the heat for a few pics outside as well.

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

The B. Family – Summer Portrait Session

This family of five was a pleasure to work with for their summer portrait session. I brought ice packs, and they had a cooler of drinks to beat the 95+ heat. We met at the Circle C trails in South Austin and stuck to the shade. Whether balancing on high heels, giving lots of hugs or avoiding the sticky burrs/ant piles – the kids were so easy going and fun to photograph.

Circle C Ranch – Location Scouting

We took the boys to Circle C Ranch for some location scouting/hiking. Glad to see some end-of-season wildflowers were still hanging around. There was no water in Slaughter Creek – so we got to explore the creek bed, found a snake skin in a tree and climbed in, out and all over the place.

Baby Juniper – Newborn Family Session

I got to meet Baby Juniper when she was less than 2 weeks old. She was happy and content being cradled under the blooming pomegranate tree in her backyard, laying on her hand-me-down quilt and being loved on by her parents and older sister, Bess.
