the cook ladies

A few weeks ago my friend Laura called me to ask if I could take some photos of herself and her two little girls with her mom and her sister. Of course I was totally game and was ready to chat about what type of session she wanted to do. Laura not only has two little ones under the age of two, her sister is expecting a baby of her own and her mom is just beaming with joy with all of these grand babies, so I knew this would be a special session for these ladies. Laura and I decided taking photos of them all interacting at home was best and she was super prepared with lots of bubble fun for the kids. Laura’s mom really got down with the bubbles and I captured some of the sweetest moments of her and her grand babies together. My favorite part of it all though, was definitely the moment Laura’s baby spit up in her hand haha Nothing beats unexpected real moments and Laura’s expression is just priceless.

a blog that inspires the heck out of me

A few days ago I had the pleasure of photographing one of Austin’s newest mom bloggers, Robin Theis. Robin is inspiring people to LOVE where they live, whether that’s in their home or in their own skin! How amazing is that concept?

She was just recently aproached by a Motherhood and Lifestyle blog to write an article to share with their viewers and she chose to write a few tips on how to tackle clutter in order to make improvements to our health. When she told me this I was like, wait, what does clutter have to do with my health? And then it hit me. Most of the time, when my house isn’t in order, and things are untidy, my health is lacking for sure. When I have a pile of dirty clothes to wash (I should say piles), and the dishes are dirty, and the beds are unmade, and I just can’t figure out how to get to it all, those are the days I roll up to Chick-fil-a and order a #2 for myself….it’s so true! But, Robin has figured it out. What an amazing parallel that most of us don’t realize is there. Needless to say, I am super excited to read Robin’s article and can’t wait to see how successful her blog gets!

Baby River steals my heart!

Oh my goodness. What a sweet little bundle of JOY I got to capture last week.

When the Jenkins family asked me to take photos of the three of them I jumped at it. Not only because I was ready to visit Colorado again (thanks Texas heat), but because the Jenkins family and my family go way back. Yeah, we love each other - LOL and as you can imagine, I was super excited to meet little River! And she didn’t disappoint! That sweet smile melted my heart and it was adorable seeing this awesome family that we love interact together, dogs and all. I can’t wait to watch River grow up and hope to snap more photos of her in the future.

The Theis Family welcomes a new baby

This past weekend I got to spend some time with the Theis family and watch as they snuggled their new baby girl, Hollis. What a special time in their lives. I am so honored they chose me to capture these special moments. It was especially sweet to see their son interacting with his new baby sister. You can tell that he was so excited to finally have here here and that he will be an amazing big brother. This is one lucky little girl. Her home is filled with so much love and I know that she will grow up as happy as they come. I can’t wait to watch her grow through the years.

They're engaged!

Oh my gosh. This newly engaged couple was the cutest and made me think a lot about when Jordan and I first met. For their shoot, Danika and her man wanted to walk the street of downtown Austin and revisit one of their favorite bars. Of course I thought this was a fantastic idea…I mean, who wouldn’t want to hang out downtown and have some beers during a photoshoot? Genius! As you can image, it was a pretty fun time, but what was more fun, was watching these guys and their sweet little relationship. I am so thrilled for them and can’t wait to see them as a married couple.
