Kneeland + Family – Austin, Texas | Family Photographer

I know the title says “Austin, Texas” because thats where I currently live & I still have a fan base in North Carolina, so I don’t want anyone thinking I permanently live there. In January I traveled to Georgia and added a VERY quick trip to Jacksonville, North Carolina to visit this amazing family. While there, I photographed them of course. The last time I photographed Crystal & her family, it was only a family of three about a year or more prior to conceiving Noah. These four are just a pure joy to be around.  I’m so thankful for the friendship we have and am so thankful that despite being a photographer herself, she held out for me to photograph them<3

Angel+Michael – (Austin, Tx Couples photography)

I cannot believe I’ve never shared these photos. I don’t get to photograph couples very often. My market is mostly newborn, children & family. If you’ve been around a while you know that I mostly photographed couples when I started my business in North Carolina. I miss getting two people madly in love in front of my camera without any other distractions. This beautiful and favorite location is a plus as well. 1 (1 of 1)-21 (1 of 1)-41 (1 of 1)-61 (1 of 1)-71 (1 of 1)-91 (1 of 1)-141 (1 of 1)-181 (1 of 1)-361 (1 of 1)-48

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.
