Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s a time to celebrate all of the special women in our lives.  That is why I’ve decided to host a very special Mommy & Me mini session.  As moms we are often time behind the camera, capturing the special moments in our family’s lives, and not in front of it.  So on Sunday, May 21 I’m offering 20 minute mini sessions just for Moms at a private venue in NW Austin.  Sorry Dads…just the moms for these sessions, but if Grandma is in town, please invite her to join in the fun.


When: Sunday, May 21 – morning and evening

Where: Private venue in NW Austin

Who: Moms, Grandmas, and children

Why: To capture images that both you and your children will cherish

Cost: $200 (plus tax)…includes 10 digital images and print rights to your photos



You can sign up using the Signup Genius form HERE. Or you can email me directly at  Once you sign up I’ll send an invoice for the session.  A $100 deposit is due in order to secure your spot.

Morning times:  8:00 AM, 8:20 AM, 8:40 AM, 9:00 AM, 9:20 AM, 9:40 AM

Our mild winter has brought an early spring, and in Austin that means Bluebonnets!  I am now booking for Bluebonnet mini sessions.  This is one of my most favorite times of year when our fields become covered with our state flower.

Mini sessions will be 20 minutes long and include 10 digital images, which you can choose from your gallery.  All photos are professionally edited and you receive a high resolution digital copy with print rights. I will be holding these sessions in the morning and evening of Saturday, March 18 and March 25.   The location will be determined once the fields have bloomed.

***I’ve added the extra sessions on April 1st***

Being an Austin lifestyle family photographer means most of my fall is spent outside in the most amazing city (ok, in my opinion) and meeting amazing families.  The West family is one of the many reasons why I love my job, they were especially awesome! They are such a wonderful example of a joyful family.  As soon as we meet they were all smiles and ready for the camera.  Dad has one of THE BEST smiles, and you can see that their son also got it too.   These sweet kids made their parents laugh and smile as we documented some of their fun-loving family moments.

We met downtown at the Long Center on a somewhat cloudy morning, but as we laughed, danced and had fun…the sun peaked out to give us just a little bit of that beautiful morning light.

Booking Fall Photo Sessions

I’m so excited that fall is almost here and the weather will (eventually) turn a little crisper.  Which means it’s that time of year to book your family photo sessions. Having professional photos taken is not only a great opportunity to capture photos for your holiday cards, but there are lots of fun and creative holiday gifts that can be made with your photos to give to family member.  And it’s also a great way to update old photo frames or create new photo collages for your walls.

I am now booking sessions for October and November, as well as early 2017.  I shoot during the week as well as the weekend (but the weekends fill up fast!).  However,  keep in mind that many popular locations will be less crowded if you pick a weekday for your session.   Locations can be in Austin and the surrounding areas (Cedar Park, Pflugerville, Lakeway, etc) and setting can include parks, urban, downtown views, Austin 360 bridge. Let me know what part of town you live in as well as what type of setting you would like and we’ll work together to pick a perfect location.  For those interested in a full session, in-home shoots are also available.  I  schedule sessions in either early morning or right before sunset.

I am offering both Mini sessions and Full Family sessions.  To book your session, contact me to set a date, time and location.  A deposit is needed to reserve your spot and the remaining balance is due on the day of your session.
