To all my clients... Thank you!

As my busy season is slowly winding down, I can’t be more grateful to my amazing clients who return to me year after year!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

When I set off on this journey of creating my own photography business, I didn’t have an understanding of how hard it can be to run your own business. I knew there would be difficulties. However, nothing really prepared me for the constant ups and downs of it. There’s the fantasy version of running a business where it just takes off without any hiccups or perils along the way.

Then there’s the reality of starting up your business from scratch and keeping it going even when you want to hang up your hat and say ‘I’m done.’

Don’t get me wrong, there are still a lot of tough days. I’ll make no illusion of it being all rainbows and sunshine all the time. Because it isn’t. It is hard work, grit, and the drive to keep doing better that keeps me going. And my wonderfully, supportive husband who stands behind me.

For all of my clients who have stayed with me through the years,
All of my new clients who have trusted me with their family photos,
And all my future clients who are dying to hire me ;),
Thank you!

Without all of you entrusting me to do my job, I wouldn’t have a business.

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season!

Merry Christmas!
Happy Hanukah!
Happy Kwanza!
Happy Holidays!
And Happy New Year!

Family Photo Session | Cedar Park, TX

Family photos are wonderfully timeless.

Doesn't matter is you were sporting rainbow bangs in your family pictures or if you were wearing matching jumpsuits. Those were the fashion of the times. We rocked them or they rocked us!

Looking beyond our fashion mistakes of our youth, we still see and remember the good times when looking at photos. Which is why, not matter how painful it might be, you should always make time for your family to have photos. Your kids will want to see the printed version up on your walls and picture frames. they’ll look back and think the same things you are thinking about your family photos. But your kids will remember the good times or laugh at how crazy mom was getting everyone dressed and ready for the photos. Either way, they will have a smile on their face!

Enjoy these family photos of this awesome family!

And remember, photos are timeless and priceless.

Family Photo Sessions | Round Rock, TX

I love photographing large families.  Whether it's large extended families or just immediate family members, the craziness of a family session is really energizing for me.  I know from experience trying to get all your kids to look at the camera, relax, have fun and smile seems completely impossible.  How do I know this?  Because trying to photograph my four children in one nice photo for their grandparents seems near impossible to me.

But getting a large group of kids who aren't my own to do it?  Piece of cake!

These kids were great!  Even the youngest who kept wondering off was fun to be around and photograph.  Family sessions don't have to be stressful.  Just walk in knowing I, the professional photographer you hired, has it under control.  Just sit back, relax, and allow me to capture your family is some fun, great photos.

Family Photo Session | Round Rock, TX

Growing up a Military brat has left me with a soft heart when it comes to Military Families and Veterans.  These people choose to serve our country and are truly selfless.  With both parent's being former Military and now Veterans, I loved being able to photograph their growing family for them.  Plus, they just recently moved to Round Rock, so it was fun to show them a little bit of Round Rock history.

If you are a Veteran or active duty Military, I'd love to be your photographer!  With my Dad serving 22 years in the Navy, it takes a community and I'd be happy to be a part of yours!

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!
