The wildflowers in Abelingland

These boys are so much fun!  I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them 3 years in a row.  It is neat to see how much they change every year and it is also interesting to see my photographic style/skill change over those 3 years! You can absolutely see the friendship and love these little boys have for each other.  It is so sweet and what an adventure for my amazing friend Victoria to have 3 BOYS 3 and under!  If you want to read about her adventures, check out here blog here!


2011: (The drought made blue bonnets this year not possible….we found these sweet little yellow flowers, but even they look a bit dry!!)


Liz B - Love this family, love the boys, love the flowers and love these pictures, Tara. So fun to see 3 years’ worth!

Waiting for baby…. Austin Maternity Photographer

I absolutely loved photographing this beautiful mama to be.  I’m so excited that I will get to document this baby coming into the world in May. This mama is glowing and you can totally feel the love she has for her baby already. For me personally, my pregnancies were difficult and uncomfortable….I can’t say that I’m one of those woman who feel great the whole time and *love* being pregnant…but looking at these pictures I actually miss feeling that sweet baby growing inside me….it is such a magical time in your life and I’m so happy that these memories are captured forever.

Sneak Peek for {D} family | - [...] sweet baby boy from his birth pictures you can see here and you can see more of this BEAUTIFUL mama here.  This lovely park and refreshing stream are the perfect spot to shoot on a warm Austin morning.  [...]

Surprise baby girl!

I got the pleasure of photographing these sweet new parents for their maternity session back in January (you can see that session here).  At the time they didn’t know if that cute baby bump was a girl or a boy…(kuddos to them for holding out for the big surprise…I’m WAAAAYY too impatient….but I think its so cool for people that can hold out!).  Here are some things that mommies recommend. I guessed girl….and I was right!  Here is sweet Molly Amelia Aho, born 2/28/12 when she was just 6 days new.


Katie - Love the photos! Such a sweet baby girl!

Lena Dusa - If I had to chose one picture for myself I wouldn’t be able to make a decision. All of them are soooo good!!!! Thanks Jared and Katie for our beautiful new additional to the family. Can’t wait to see her myself. I need to figure out a way to see her soon.
