Hudson bend family photography session

One thing I really love about the 4th is that families get all together! Its the perfect time to take advantage of capturing your family , all the grand babies and cousins !

I have had so many stunning Lake Travis sessions this summer , This sweet family session took place in Hudson Bend. It was a warm morning , good thing you couldn’t see all wonderful nasty sweat on my face! This family however looked stunning despite the humidity! You cant even tell it was a crazy warm July morning.

It was 8am and already quite bright , but that did not stop us from capturing the sweetest warm memories !

two toddlers and a ten day old baby where in this mix!

Maternity sunset photography session, Lake Travis

I love maternity sessions , capturing a new mama`s to be glow .

And then getting to meet the bundle of joy a couple months later is the most special thing I think I could capture for a family! Its amazing seeing two people in a tiny little face.

This session took place at sunset off of lake Travis in the Texas Hill Country. Thank goodness weather was on our side and the humidity , for July , was not all as bad as we expected.

Thank you Jesus!

Lake Travis Family session

I love family sessions, I tend to be a speedy photographer , get done before the kiddos are way over it! I love the candid smiles , and I really love smiling baby smiles !

I especially enjoy lake Travis sessions considering that`s basically my back yard!

The best time for outdoor sessions in this HOT Texas summer weather is bright and early or in the evening! This wonderful family was up bright and early for me , and my oh my did their session come out amazing!

Capturing Toddlers

I love toddler portraits. This age is hard mama but oh so amazing. It`s my favorite. They are becoming their own little people. Their personalities blooming ! And man are they proud to do the opposite of what you say haha!

So many people tell me they are hesitant to book a session because their toddler wont sit.

All right first thing, if needed bribes win . I know , I know you don`t want too but if it works , it works! Vitmain suckers for the win! Found at whole foods, Natural Grocers and Amazon ! ( not an ad!) Also , not to brag but I am super speedy. I will set up everything before hand and make sure I am ready when your kiddo is! I will prob look like a fool jumping , playing peek-a-boo whatever but we will get something!

Part of capturing toddler portraits for me is also capturing their personality! There are the shy kiddos , hey that`s my kid, those serious faces that study you , and those goofy kiddos , you will miss these little looks with the big eyes and round cheeks!

I love tiny Oh SO serious little human faces!

If yours is a goof ball , we will have lots of fun getting those goofy faces ! Whatever the personality I strive to capture that for you!

This little boy Grey, is a ham. He warms up quickly to you and gives you lots of cute flirtatious smiles , watch out girls!

This quick 8 min session was just perfect for this on the move 15 month old!

Look at those eyes!

Look at those eyes!

Mommy did it! Graduation Family session

This mama and daughter was a special one.
I love when moms continue their dreams and its so inspiring to see them succeed .
The self discipline it takes to keep on keeping on when your time is no longer your own.
There are so many journeys and learning a little bit about each mom makes capturing their session so so special . 
"A Mom,
one who sacrifices her body, sleep , spending money, eating hot meals , peeing alone , patience and sanity 
all for LOVE. "
Congratulations ! I am so grateful to be the one who got to capture this sweet session out at the round rock University!

Spring

Spring sessions are in full swing.

WOW I have been busy you guys, but it has been wonderful and I am so grateful .

Spring in Texas is stunning. I am obsessed with all the flower fields .It is one of my FAVORITES. I live in the hill country off of lake Travis. SO spring is amazing, I get to see cute little Bambi deer laying in my front yard , blue bonnets , orange flowers , yellow flowers , SO MANY FLOWERS.

Spring is also my little dudes birthday. I can not believe how much he is growing , it was like in one day he decided he was going to copy every word we say and have his own little opinions!

seriously , just one day he this started. He has been stubborn to talk.

I got to be the photographer to capture all the sweet kiddos at his school this year , Oaklees first school photo taken by me! I can not wait to frame his school prints. I need more walls in home, I love hanging prints.

Big things are happening here and I am so excited! Over on my private blog you can see how I have made it to where I am and how I plan to continue to grow and succeed !

I also share mommy motivations, books and podcasts that I am listening to .

Happy Spring ya`ll .

Lachandra and Kenneth , Villa Antonia

When Lachandra emailed after our consolation that they were going to have me as their photographer I jumped up and totally squealed with joy . I was so excited because after a year off from weddings I knew this was going to be such an amazing couple to capture. They are so kind , and you can just feel that they are in love. I love capturing the moments of true connection and love .

I started the day by capturing some details of flowers , dresses , shoes and Villa Antonia , this little gem is a hill country dream. It was breathtaking!

Spring Photography sessions and milk baths

Spring , I am ready for you! I think most of us are ready for some Texas warmth. This is much too cold! I am ready for flower field sessions, blue bonnet drives and some lake Travis fun. Anyone else just love the flowers that pop up that make our commutes to and from beautiful? I think every year I just talk and talk about all the flowers and the fields. Oh how I just LOVE them.

Until then we will take some sweet spring session milk baths where the babies can be warm and leave with soft baby skin from a fresh milk float!

Miss sweet Ella had her 6 month old session here with me. I cant believe it. It feels like yesterday I captured her sweet mama for her maternity photos right here in my back yard on Lake Travis. And it really , really feels like I captured her newborn images yesterday! I can not believe how much this little one has grown already! I am not sure I can get enough of her rolls , baby rolls are seriously the cutest! Baby rolls with flower toes , milk baths and big baby giggles are even sweeter!

Hidden Hill Country Gem /Villa Antonia

When I first walked through the wedding venue Villa Antonia, the sweetest hidden hill country venue, I was just in aww of the beauty and all the stunning details. Every corner has character . I was even more excited that bride and groom, LaChandra and Kenneth, chose me to capture their special day. There was no doubt how much these two love each other, which makes my job easy!

Stunning , beautiful hill country venue that makes you feel like your in another country and a beautiful couple , in love. OH my HEART!

I could not wait to share a mini sneak peak and just say THANK YOU ! I am so grateful I was one chosen to capture their day and grateful for how amazing all the vendors were! I can not wait to share more .

Everyone here was just amazing all the way from the wedding coordinator to the the make- artist and florist. Her bridal bouquets were so dreamy, just wait till I share !

This image that I am sharing first I fell in love with. The romantic low lighting , blue velvet chairs and stunning outdoor lights bursting through the windows , and oh yes, I am a huge sucker for loving, happy candid images.
