Trip to Rome, Italy!

I'm really behind on sharing these photos!  My awesome husband took me to Rome, Italy back in October 2017.  We went with my brother and brother-in-law.  We had an amazing trip!

I stepped out of my comfort zone and focused on street photography.  I photographed all the big landmarks and all the interesting stuff I was able to find on side streets and all over the city.  We hit all the tourists attractions like the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, the Spanish Steps, several fountains, and Vatican City.  We also just walked around Rome and did our best not to get hit and run over by the crazy moped drivers (and there were a lot!).

And the food!  Oh Italian food is spectacular!  I highly recommend going to Rome just to eat amazing food for a week straight!  We ate gelato everyday, and I have no regrets.

Enjoy a photographers paradise (or one of them)... Rome, Italy!

The flight to England and subsequent layover at Heathrow took it out of these three.

Teen and his Labrador Photo Session | Pflugerville, TX

Photographing this handsome teenager and his beautiful yellow Labrador was a lot of fun.  These were a surprise Christmas gift for some family members, so we had to keep the whole thing under wraps until after Christmas.  The Lab, whose name is Baxter, was definitely an active boy during the photo shoot.  It took a bit of bribing and some commands of 'sit and stay' from Mom and I to get him to cooperate.  I'm pretty sure the doggie treats helped out a lot!  But he was a really good boy (and so was his teenage buddy!).  Check out these two handsome young fellows!

Photographing a Baptism | St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church, Pflugerville, TX

Last December, I had the great honor of photographing the Baptism of a little girl at St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church in Pflugerville, TX.  This is a special event for this little girl, her parents, and all her extended friends and family.  She wore the most adorable white baptism gown, and she didn't even cry when the water was poured over her head.

Photographing this event truly was a privilege for me to capture this momentous occasion for her parents.  And they could really jus sit back and enjoy it instead of having to worry about photographing all the entire ceremony because I was there to photograph it for them.  Check out these Baptism photos taken last month.

Family Christmas Photos | Round Rock, TX

Even though it's nearly a month past Christmas, I'd love to share this family photo session I did in Downtown Round Rock.  I love this family!  I photographed their daughter's one year old photos over the summer, and I love seeing how much she's grown in 6 months time!  They really are the sweetest family!  Even though it was pretty chilly, we toughed it out by the large Christmas tree and giant Ornament ball in Downtown Round Rock to capture some great family photos.

Family Photo Session | Pflugerville, TX

Photographing this family was eventful!  It was the first time they had ever had family portraits done!  I was humbled and honored that Mom contacted me and asked me to photograph their family for the first time.

Mom and Dad had the sweetest little girls.  We had a few updates and downs because the girls got a little hungry.  And the poor one year old had a fresh cold, so her nose was a little runny.  Luckily, we had a warmish December day to work with.  In the end, their family photos turned out beautiful, and I was very happy to deliver them to the family.  Enjoy this beautiful family photo session in Pflugerville.

'Dirt in the skirt!' Love it!
