Family Photo Session | Pease Park, Austin, TX

Family photo sessions are some of my favorite sessions to photograph.  The interaction between parents and children, the smiles and laughs, the inside jokes amongst the family, all of this makes a family and comes out through their family photos.

This particular family photo session was extra special to me!  I photographed this family while they were in the NICU.  I volunteer with an organization called The Tiny Footprints Project.  I photograph preemies in the NICU and their families to give them happy and special memories during what can be a stressful time.  This strong, little girl came into the world a bit early and has grown into a full blown toddler.  Her parents are the sweetest people!  And they brought their dog with them, which I got to love up on.  Enjoy this sweet family photo session I shot at Pease Park in Austin.

Family Photo Session | Hutto, TX

When it's cold and wet outside, I was able to shoot this photo session in this beautiful space in Hutto, TX called One Eleven East.  It's a gorgeous venue with white brick walls, antique wood doors, wood floors, and white penny tile floors.  It's a dream to shoot in!  This family photo session featured a beautiful little girl with her parents.  Although after about 30 minutes, it took me acting a bit goofy to get a smile on her face, but it was definitely worth it.

Enjoy this family photo session taken in Hutto!

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!

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!
