  • 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.

Aaron – 1st birthday party photo session

Happy 1st Birthday, Aaron! Thanks for having me to your “You are my Sunshine” party to capture all the fun. And how wonderful to see how much you’ve changed since your last photo session at your half-birthday.

I think this is my favorite outtake during the cupcake smashing.

Allie & John – Engagement Portrait Session

Meet Allie and John (and their sweet dog, Marley). These two recently got engaged at Red Bud Isle. So it was the obvious choice as the location for their engagement portraits. And let me just say, after so many baby & toddler sessions in a row, how refreshing it was to have:

1) subjects who could stand still

2) and follow directions

It was an honor to capture how smitten these two are with each other. Not to mention, the Redbud trees were in bloom, the weather was cooperative and these two just glowed.

I think this is my favorite outtake – since Marley is thinking, “You all are still kissing?”

Ainsley & Family – Newborn Portrait Session

Say hello to three-week old Ainsley and her family (previously photographed here).

I was so happy to get to meet (and photograph) her. She came with hair bows and sweet smocked clothes. But seemed happiest swaddled up tight and held in mom or dad’s arms. We even wrangled her big brother into a few pics with her.

Jerlynn - You have a great eye for this. I really like the photo of the feet with the decorated letter next on the left side. That is a really unique shot that I would never have thought to do. Thanks for giving me some new ideas. I tend to do all of the photography for our family events.

Thanks again,
Jerlynn

Gabe & Family – Portrait Session

Meet Gabe, an almost-two-year old who’s full of energy! When I laced on my running shoes to meet Gabe and his parents at the Katherine Fleischer Park, I hoped to be ready. This charmer climbs, runs laps, and loves to get thrown up, up, up in the air.  Oh, wait, what’s that?- a quiet moment of sitting still? Oh, yes, Mom has just pulled out one of his favorite books. And then it’s good to slow down and give your favorite monkey a hug. Gabe, after exploring every inch of that park, I trust you slept well that night.

Katie - Thank you, Stephanie!
The photo session was great, and I so appreciate the way you accommodated my high-energy little man. The photos are beautiful! I can’t decide which ones to frame!

Katie (and Gabe and Dad)
