Sweet baby Boy Layton’s 9 month session

You’ve probably noticed that I’m been shooting a lot around water…..well its Texas and its August!!  It is so refreshing to dip your feet in during the session it doesn’t even feel like its a million degrees outside! I love all my clients, but this awesome fam is the bestest!  I started taking their family pics when Jaxon was ONE, then we did an 18 month shoot, then we did Layton’s NEWBORN, 3 MONTH, 6 MONTH, and now here is his 9 months.  Can’t wait to see ya’ll again in a couple months for Layton’s big one year shoot!

“Joy”ful Baptism – Austin Family Lifestyle Photographer

You all met this beautiful baby girl here and here from her birthday back in January.  Now, 6 months later this sweet family asked me to document another milestone in Penny Joy’s life, her Baptism.  I was absolutely honored to be there and I can’t even tell you how much I loved doing something that was a little out of my norm.  It was great to see all Penny’s Aunties and Uncles fawn all over those sweet little cheeks of hers.  She is a very lucky baby to be born into a family with so much love, and not to mention genetically blessed with those amazing lashes!!  Not fair!!

Penny’s sweet mama, Monica went all out and really make this baptism so special, from the beautiful cake, adorable dress, bloomers, jewelry, shoes, favors, everything was so thought out and really elegant and special. In fact, Ms. Penny had such a good time at her baptism she passed out from all the fun at her reception. Too cute!

Amy McLaughlin Field - Amazing pictures, Tara. Just amazing!

Tara Harrison Pottichen - Thanks, Amy!! ♥

Janet Rowlett - Wow, how beautiful and special this moment is.

Crystal Munguia - Absolutely a blessing! Her eyes are so happy all the time and just light up every picture.

Martha Wahl - Amazing photographs. Thank you for doing an awesome job of capturing this beautiful day!

Sneak Peek for {D} family

Just a few sneak peeks from the beginning of my session last weekend.  Do you guys remember this sweet baby boy from his birth pictures?  You can see them here….be prepared for tears!  This lovely park and refreshing stream are the perfect spot to shoot on a warm Austin morning.  Can’t wait to show off this whole session.  Gorgeous family + beautiful location = Magic!  Stay tuned!


Victoria Vocelka Duplantis - AMAZING!

Valentina Vassallo Pollard - oh my gosh, vicki, these are incredible! where did you guys take the first one? magical!

Kathie John - I’m eating up her pictures of that little guy’s birth and seriously considering doing hospital pics as well as new baby pics at home….

Victoria Vocelka Duplantis - They were all done at bull creek

Valentina Vassallo Pollard - you should, kathie!!! vicki is one of my good friends – i need to intro you two…

Craig Vocelka - Wow!

Angela Birdwell - Beautiful! What a perfect family!

Total sweetness ♥

This session has become one of my favorites of all time.  The family was so fun to work with, the 2 girls were adorable, happy and sweet and the location was Austin at its best.  I also love that after I posted the sneak peek, the dad posted on his facebook wall that he was happy his wife made him to the session!  Haha!  I think so many men (including my own hubby) feel this was about signing up for a photography session, but after its all said and done they end up loving it the most!

Rebecca - too cute!!!

Julie - I love it! My favorite is the one when they’re all in the water. Gorgeous!

Leilani Rogers - WAAAYYY too cute! Oh my gosh I love them all.
