Family Mini Photo Session | Pflugerville, TX

Holiday and Fall family photo sessions are in full swing around here.  It's just that time of year!

I had family mini-sessions scheduled far in advance for this family.  Unfortunately, I can't schedule the weather too!  We had a cold front that blew in this weekend, and it got cold here in Texas.  The wind was constantly blowing hard, and it was in the 50s.  And for us Texans, that's really cold; especially when the previous day hit the 80 degree mark.

Luckily this family were troopers and bared the cold, windy weather to have their family photos taken.  Enjoy!

Family Photo Session | Austin, TX

Graffiti Hill at Castle Park.  Need I say more?

When this family approached me with having their family photos taken at Graffiti Hill at Castle Park in Austin, I was so excited!  Excited because I had never had a photo shoot there.  Excited because having a family photo shoot with colors galore in the background is quite different from the natural, greenery setting I usually photograph in.  And excited because it was a new challenge for me!

I am thrilled with how this family's photos came out!  Graffiti Hill is very Austin.  And if you have no idea what I mean by that, let me explain.  Austin, Texas is a hip, cool, and weird city.  Keep Austin Weird are not just words but a motto around here.  It's cool, funky vibe separates it from the rest of the cities in Texas.  And Graffiti Hill definitely fits that description.

Plus at the top, is a beautiful skyline view of Austin.

Enjoy these funky, cool family photos!

Newborn Twins in the NICU | Austin, TX

As many of you who read my blogs regularly know, I'm a volunteer photographer with The Tiny Footprints Project.  The Tiny Footprints Project offers free photo sessions to parents who have newborns in the NICU.  They have photographers all over the country who volunteer their time to give parents the precious gifts of photos and memories during an especially difficult time.

I had the opportunity to photographer newborn twins at Dell Children's in Austin at the beginning of October.  They were only ten days old at the time and were so tiny.  Their parents were the nicest people who already adored both of their precious babies.  Photographing their twins was an honor, and I hope they cherish these memories for years to come.

60th Wedding Anniversary and Family Reunion Photo Session | Austin, TX

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a sweet couples 60th Anniversary as well as a large family reunion a few weeks ago.  The whole extended family go together to celebrate their Mom and Dad/Grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary.

This large extended family was hoot!  They had me laughing as much as I was photographing with all the side comments siblings and cousins were making at each other.  It reminded me a lot of my very large extended family.  It's one of the reasons I never shy away from photographing a large family or group.  I just remember how large my own family is and think 'this is great!'
Enjoy this 60th Wedding Annivesary and Family Reunion in Austin!

In-home Family Photo Session | Round Rock, TX

In-home family lifestyle photo sessions are one of my favorite types of photo sessions.  Mainly because, I started photographing my own family in our home.

A person can learn so much about a family from how they interact with each other in their home. The family is already comfortable because they are in a familiar place which makes getting Moms, Dads, and children to relax in front of the camera a little easier.

This beautiful family had a gorgeous home to shoot their 7 month old baby girl, Zoey.  And since their house of gorgeous, it made my job that much easier.  Enjoy these beautiful family photos!
