Arizona + Saguaro

The Saguaro National Park has been the at the top of my “bucket list” places to visit. You see, for a long time I did not have much of a desire to travel. I take that back, I had to much anxiety that any desire to travel I immediately shut it down ( I know, shocker! I am human too) Anyways, I decided enough was enough and created this pretty awesome bucket list, and it just so happens that I know a incredible amount of beautiful people that I would love to photograph. One’s I have photographed for a very long time and then distance stopped that from continuing. So anyways, without further a due’ here is some of my favorite people, in one of my favorite places (It quickly became a favorite)

If you haven’t been to the Saguaro, please do yourself a favor and go. Pictures don’t do it justice.

Hope you enjoyed some of my favorite travel photos. I somehow wrangled all of these children and got successful pictures of them all together, so if you had any reservations that I couldn’t possibly photograph your family, you’re so so wrong 🙂

Brianna + Portraits | Austin Tx photographer

While I was visiting Georgia, I photographed this beauty. I have known Brianna since she was 5/6? I can’t remember exactly, but lets say I was the one in the yard with her while she was just starting cheerleading yelling “higher” when she was doing her toe touches (like I really knew what I was talking about, haha) .. I babysat her, curled her hair, and ultimately watched her grow into a young adult. I still cannot believe I am photographing her in a adult way. I remember when I grabbed my dads gigantic digital point and shoot camera, you know the huge ones when digital point and shoots just became a “thing”? We snuck around the corner of the house where there were over grown shrubs and trees and had a little photoshoot. Gosh, I think I was 10? Crazy how life turns out and here I am photographing her as a professional photographer.

Enough talk, more looking at this gorgeousness.

Austin + Maternity | Austin, TX Photographer

You would probably never guess that it was 30 degrees outside & we were suffering from hypothermia, ok I’m being sarcastic…. slightly. They were such troopers to fight the cold with me, only for it to warm up the next day. Thankfully they braved the cold with me because their little guy came not to long after our session. ❤

Fall Mini Sessions – Austin, Tx

Well fall mini sessions are in full swing. This is my first official successful fall mini session season here in Austin Texas. It’s been a pleasure. I always struggle with whether I should do fall or Christmas mini sessions. This year I will be doing both because what the heck right? Here are the adorable families I’ve had the pleasure of photographing so far this “busy” season for photographers. Thank you for trusting my random blankets in a tree set up that you showed up too, I kind of love it ❤
