Sneak Peek – Cindy & Mark

One of my New Year’s resolutions has been to blog more.  So, in that spirit, I am sharing my first session of 2011 here.  Cindy has been a friend of mine since I first moved to Austin almost four years ago.  She and her husband Mark are expecting twin boys in just a couple of months!  We spent a few hours on the first day of the new year traipsing around Austin taking some super cute maternity shots.  Here is the first of many more to come!

Thanks for trusting me to capture this exciting time in your lives, Cindy and Mark!  I can’t wait to meet your little ones soon!

Bourbon Street Takeover

The groom for the fantastic New Orleans wedding had an image in his head… a shot he really wanted me to get:  him, flanked by his groomsmen, walking down the street all Reservoir Dogs style (minus the guns).

Only one slight, teeny tiny problem…

The street he had in mind?

Bourbon Street.

Halloween Weekend.

About 4 hours before a huge parade was supposed to take place.

As you might imagine, the street was completely packed.  I had no idea how this was going to work with literally hundreds of people around us.  (Including one woman who desperately wanted me to photograph her *ahem* assets.   I politely declined.)

But these boys rocked it.  They just stood in a line and blocked the foot traffic and did it.  And they even re-did it when I realized one of the groomsmen had wandered into a shadow.  Rocked.  It.

I cannot begin to tell you how much fun I had shooting this wedding… it was a blast!  I’ll have the rest of it up on the blog soon, but I wanted to get this post up for a little sneak peek.

Gift Certificates Available!

‘Tis the season!  Next week officially begins the holiday shopping season.  It’s one of my favorite times of year – I love the hustle and bustle and festive mood.  Even here in Austin, it’s finally starting to get cooler and bundling up is starting to be an actual option.  For this New Hampshire girl, the change in weather has been very welcome!

As you begin your holiday shopping list, consider giving the gift of custom photography to someone you love.  Do you know a couple that is newly engaged?  Expecting their first child?  A family that is growing?  These moments are precious and giving someone the gift of forever capturing them is priceless.

Gift certificates are available in any amount, are good for one year,  and can be used towards session fees or prints.  Gift certificates for session fees that are purchased before December 20, 2010, will be given 2010 pricing when the session is purchased in advance.  That is 25% off what the 2011 pricing will be!  If you are considering a session as a gift for someone else or even yourself – now is a good time to make that purchase.  And, if you have any questions, just contact me through the contact link at the top of the page!

May the holiday season be sweet to you and yours,  and may you remember to take a few moments during the hustle and bustle to enjoy the season!

Texas Rowing Center Fundraising Photoshoot

As I posted a few weeks ago, I was given the wonderful opportunity to work with Texas Rowing Center on a project to raise money for Texas Rowing for All.  Texas Rowing for All is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing Texas Rowing Center’s mission to be the most inclusive rowing and paddling organization in the nation.   Today, Texas Rowing For All is a national leader in providing rowing and paddling recreation for people with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities.

In order to raise money for this wonderful cause, I and another photographer, Alison Krause, donated our services to provide holiday photos on the dock in return for a small donation to Texas Rowing for All.  It was really inspiring to see some of the rowers with Texas Rowing for All in action, and in general, a whole lot of fun.  Texas Rowing Center was awesome to work with, and I really hope they will have me back out next year.

Don’t these pictures make you want to hop in a boat and get on the water?  I know I can’t wait to get rowing!  Thanks again Kristin and TRC!  You rock!

Santa’s Little Helper

A few weeks ago, I had this cute little guy (and his fabulous mom) over to the house for a little pre-holiday photo shoot.  He is such a sweet baby – so calm and even tempered.  He made me work for his smiles, but it was so worth it… don’t you think?
