    good morning austin

    I was beyond excited when my phone alerted me I had received a new message.  Nina contacted me the other week regarding her own photo shoot.  With no hesitation I replied, “I would love to talk details!”  It took no time at all to pick up on her sweet personality!  Our first encounter was a ton of fun but I have to elaborate on our story. Daylight savings has made it near to impossible to photograph clients after 5 pm.  Nina had a great idea to meet in the morning prior to our workday even beginning.  I loved the idea and locked in a date and time.  Of course, Texas enjoys keeping…

    change and tranquility

    A message from Gateway Church was just what I needed today!  Pastor John Burke elaborated on his series called “How to Kill a Relationship in 30 Days.”  John stressed marriages tend to lose their spark after two years of togetherness.  As humans, we all have unspoken rules relateable to don’t take food that isn’t yours, wash your hands, put your shoes away, replace the toilet paper when empty, etc.  When our significant other fails to meet these expectations we become let down.  At times it is hard to look past the action (as little or big it may be). Control gets the best of us!  If we learned to be flexible, willing,…

    Last week I met Aubrey for the first time.  Photographers often say the first booking is the hardest.  Mid-July Aubrey was actually one of the first people I reached out to arrange a photo shoot in ATX.  She eagerly responded back and with no hesitation YES!  Talking with Aubrey, I instantly related to her love for Austin, food, family, and friends.  Her personal blog highlights good eats, fun destinations, and that cute baby boy of hers! We started our morning at Blenders & Bowls.  Each of us ordered a delicious organic smoothie bowl topped with granola and a variety of fresh fruit.  It was fantastic – I will be back soon! …

    ice cream please

      After work this week, I had the pleasure of meeting Aimee – an Austin blogger living in the mix of Downtown ATX.  We walked to the Seaholm Power Plant area which is full of fun restaurants, coffee hangouts, and best of all ice cream.  Seriously, if you haven’t been to The Baked Bear you need to go right this second!  We had a splendid photoshoot considering it was 101 degrees out! Aimee is the sweetest human being!  I learned she is a pug mommy herself and we both agreed a dog date must be arranged soon.  Her outfits were absolutely adorable – she pays mind to the little details/accessories. …

    dear friend

      I’m excited to share my first post with you!  Last week I met Akshaya, a fashion blogger in Austin.  It was a quick meet-up and honestly that’s all it took.  She is a natural in front of the camera!  I learned Akshaya was doing a little personal investing herself as she is a graduate of The University of Texas.  Now with her free time and love for fashion – she started her own blog and Instagram page. I was equally thrilled to try out my new Canon 5D Mark IV I received for my birthday this July (thanks to Zach).  The camera does an amazing job – far behind my expectation!  It’s…
