Family Mini Photo Session | Pflugerville, TX

I shot this family at Lake Pflugerville during Golden Hour.  Golden Hour is a term used by photographers to indicate the last hour of sunlight in the day.  As a photographer, it is my absolute favorite time to photograph anybody.  The sun is a beautiful golden color, the sky turns all these beautiful colors, and I can get a little more creative with the light.

Check out this beautiful family mini photo session!

Family Mini Photo Session | Pflugerville, TX

It's been crazy around my house lately!

With Thanksgiving the week before last and all the preparation that goes into it, plus my kids being out of school for a whole week, I haven't been able to blog about any of my recent (and not so recent) photo sessions.  So bare with me as I try to catch up on all my photo blogging.

I shot a few family mini-sessions out at Lake Pflugerville back in October.  Yes, I'm that fa behind(eek!).  All of the families were a blast to work with!  I got to shoot this lovely family friend of mine and her adorable children.  Seriously, they both are so stinkin' cute!  Enjoy this family photo session!

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!

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.
