Austin, Texas: Photographer. Runner. Wanderlust. All art is for sale. Contact me below.
It was a crazy busy last 4 days, so I am behind on updates. But, I had to share this gorgeous girl. If you saw my stories you read the rave review I received from her brothers. 😂 She warned me about them prior to the session and like any good sibling, let me know she was the best sibling. 💕 Happy Tuesday! #siblingrivalry
Happy Wednesday lovely IG folks! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that a photographer only spends about 10%-15% of their time actually taking pictures? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Between now and Saturday I have 2 lovely family sessions, 2 reveal appointments with 2 other beautiful families, and have a holiday booth to prepare and show up for. I am also in the process of editing more family sessions. All will be done so everyone will get their holiday orders and gifts in time. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Bringing smiles and lasting memories to so many people. 💕What are you tackling on your to-do list?
Sometimes there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow 🌈 It might take more than just wishes and hopes, but with a little hard work and a lot of prayers, amazing can happen. Happy Monday y’all! It’s a good day.
Beauty and confidence.
Family...what it’s all about!
Beautiful sunrise family session.
This girl! 💕
This girl right here is not only beautiful and smart, she is extremely talented and will be playing college softball next year. Look out world, one of the great ones is coming for ya!
Happy Halloween 👻🎃 It’s going to be a scary couple of days. Much like this giant Jenga building in downtown Austin...I am just hoping to not topple. What is everyone dressing as for Halloween? Distract me and let me know! 💕
Check out my stories today if you’d like a new screen image for your phone. I always capture extra images on location for my family clients to use when I design their albums. So, I want y’all to enjoy as well. #alwaysgiveback
Running, it's a choice I make every day. Sure there are days that I get bored and wonder why I keep going. But I also know how it feels, how I feel, when I stop. It overcomes the boredom. I change things up, but in the end, nothing feels better than sweating. . . . Running is like crack, not that I know what that's like. But, it gets in you! It dictates what you decide to do. Heck, it's even decided a beach vacation (or 7). . . . You get that rush when you're standing out under the stars as the fall breeze tickles your skin. You look up to the heavens and smile. You start off slow so your legs can wake up. They still wanted to be in bed when that 5:30am alarm went off. But you fought them and won. You are stronger than you think you are. As your feet pound the pavement you feel it...whatever it is. Your legs are finally awake and you just go. You've done this long enough, you're on auto-pilot. You focus on your breathing. Steady does it. In through your nose out through your mouth. Relax your arms. Relax your shoulders. 45 minutes later, you're done. See that wasn't so bad. You are alive! You are ready to tackle the day. Sure you'll come down from that runners high eventually, but that is what coffee is for. . . . I wrote this 3 years ago, a few days out from another island marathon...I updated it for today, as it still rings true and how I felt on my morning run today. #mondaymotivation
Was a busy last 3 days capturing some beautiful memories for some wonderful people...and caught this butterfly 🦋 too! Don’t worry, this butterfly also made it to the family gallery. If you followed along with my stories, you saw some previews...and me going live for the first time (and messing it up too 😂). Looking forward to a break on Monday...and headed home Wednesday. Going to be a long week! Happy Sunday everyone. Hope y’all had a great weekend.
Double tap if you think this Kauai chicken 🐓 is living the good life on Poipu Beach! 😂 So wish I was joining him this weekend! Happy Friday y’all. Any big plans?
I had a nice pretty calming image to share today, but this is more my life right now...a spinning out of control carousel 🎠 If you’re ever in Santa Monica check it out because it’s so cool...built in the 1920’s ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyways, for the month of November I will be back and forth between Austin, Corpus, Kingsville/Riviera...so if anyone wants family portraits back home, let me know. It will be a great distraction from real life. 💜🙏🏼💜
I’m back to color...because that is fortunately how I get to live my life. I don’t see black & white, or even just one color. I see so much beauty in everything...even the tragic. Open your eyes and your heart and you’ll see and feel so much more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I finally started watching the new season of Anthony Bourdain last night. As heartbreaking as it was to watch, he was right...it was his story to tell. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all have our own stories and that is what makes us unique. Our stories shape how we view the people and world around us. I know for me, traveling has opened my eyes and my heart. I know just how blessed I am. Some of the stuff you see sticks with you, engrained in your mind forever. Not everyone lives like us and we can’t fix everything.
