This shoot was filled with smirks from Ruby, squishy hugs and Ada who would not stop running around! Also, Nicole always wins at outfit choices for the girls ;). Love this family and love getting to take their pics!
Sweet little cousins with flowers and bows. Such a fun shoot!
I am excited to announce my print shop is live! I have wanted to do this for a while, but never found the right collection of photos. I finally rounded up some of my favorites from the lovely state of Texas. There are so many places dear to my heart in this state and I hope these photos reflect that. Here is a little about each of the photos in the series.

This images is from the Barton Creek Greenbelt where I literally grew up running barefoot, swimming every summer there was water, swinging from trees, saving fish, collecting rocks and so much more. I got engaged here, learned to love trail running, and it's a special spot for my mom and me :). I love when there is water but I also love the way the bleached creek bed looks even without the water.
The next three are from Leakey, Texas. Which is an oh so quaint little town on the Frio River. I've been going there every summer for as long as I can remember and I just love the absolute simplicity of it.
This photo was taken near the Warrenton fields where hundreds of antique vendors set up shop twice a year for a few wonderful weekends of junking, collecting and lots of kettle corn. I try to make this trip every chance I get and the spring weekend is just bursting with bluebonnets.
This winter field is from a beautiful bed and breakfast in Roundtop. I went for a sisterhood weekend with my sister and cousin and this was the view we just couldn't get over.
This cotton field is outside of New Braunfels and a few friends and I had a dreamy shoot that we put together after a rain. The light was just amazing.
Johnson City is on our drive on the way to the Frio River-- one of my favorite antique stores located there is a must stop. I love these string lights haphazardly strung between these gorgeous Texas oaks!
These river rocks from the Frio River are really one of my favorite things ever. I love the worn shapes and the bleached whites and greys and how they get hot in the sun. This is probably my favorite in the series.
I'm no gardner but I'm trying to get better at growing and caring for green things. After our hot Texas summer I'm proud that I have a few patio plants not only somewhat thriving but blooming! I also kind of like the dusty green plants turn at the end of the summer as opposed to the brilliant green of spring.
It was such an honor photographing this sweet summertime newborn! Most chill newborn session I've had to date. Loved getting to know the Kelley family!
Loved reconnecting with one of my favorite high school teachers and photographing her family! These kids were seriously the sweetest.
Even the sweetest kids have to be silly sometimes ;).
I got to take Spencer's senior portraits a few weeks ago. This guy is headed to Nashville for school to pursue his music dreams-- so cool!
This is a collection of sweet mother moments from the past few years. I've been honored to know and work with so many mamas and grandmothers that obviously love their kids so well. Capturing this love and joy is truly one of my favorite things about photography!
Sweet Hannah was a joy to capture. And I'm super jealous of her curls!
I did a lovely college senior session last week for sweet Hannah and realized I've had her sister's senior photos blog lined up for a year and forgot to post it! Beth is a down to earth awesomely Austin-y girl. Here are a few photos we snapped last year at the greenbelt.
This fall senior session was a dream. Audrey is a beauty and the weather was simply perfect!
I loved getting to know sweet Emma and taking her senior portraits at Lake Austin. She's such a natural beauty inside and out.
In just a few weeks I will be offering Austin mini sessions! Get your holiday cards knocked out and have a fun time playing in the park. These are for families, individuals, seniors, roommates... whoever!
30-40 minute session + disk of about 20 edited images
November 8 @ Butler Park with slots starting at 9am
Email me firstname.lastname@example.org to book your slot!
I'm an aunt again! My little brother had a baby and I just can't believe he is a dad. David and my sister-in-law, Ashley are going to be the best parents for cute, squishy, beautiful Scout Mary Anne! I love her so much already!
And now for some stretches...
Ford is at such a fun age. He's all about running around and playing. During our session I had to make sure to keep up! Martha Lynn is a good friend and it was so fun to take pictures of her and her boy!
This little labor of love is finally live on the Raven+Lily website! I worked with a super talented team on this look book and couldn't be happier with the way everything worked out. Please go check out their beautiful fall collection and read the stories of women they are helping employ. I'm sharing a few of my favorites from the shoot but view the entire look book here.
I got to photograph my nieces the other week and these photos just speak summer to me! Grace is 3 and is all about make-believe right now. I love how she pretends everything into a little family and is full of surprises in the funny things she says. Shelby Kate is 1 and her very contagious smiles get me every time. Love them!
It was so refreshing catching up with my old high school friend + getting to photograph her sweet family! Theo is the most laid back baby ever and it was fun to follow them around through some daily family activities. It's always so cool to see your friends become parents!
Here are a few outtakes from a recent engagement session for Kortni and Daniel. I love photographing friends when you can tell just how happy they are! Kortni is a florist and Daniel made the table in the photographs for her so we just had to incorporate that in the shoot.
Styling shoots with flowers is probably one of my favorite things to do. These are some outtakes from a shoot I styled and photographed for Raven + Lily. I love the wild and free bouquet that was created at the end of the shoot. Happy Valentine's Day!
