South Congress Peddi-Cab! 

Grandpa and baby at a North Carolina picnic

My sweet Baby Katie doll! I accosted this poor woman in Ann Taylor and basically begged her to let me photograph this sweet baby! Now you can all see why! I have done two shoots with them now, and hope for a third as they are expecting a second child any day. So glad my stalker instincts kicked it! 

Ben, Elle and Blane. Love is all you need.
I ADORE this family.
Their mother, Danielle, (pictured later) makes beautiful,
one-of-a-kind jewelry that you will rarely see me NOT wearing!
A Happy Jake Sandwich! There are some parents that really get stressed out before and during a shoot. These are NOT those parents. They are as relaxed and calm as one would ever want to be. Their main goal? Loving this precious child... and loving each other. Not a single other worry. : )

AH, a loving Mother and her three perfect BOYS!
And THIS is why this was one of my all time favorite shoots! I had NO idea what I had captured until I got home. It was a total blur of swinging, soccer balls, swimming pools, tickling and wrestling. It was WONDERFUL! And it made me realize that although it can be VERY tiresome and frustrating, there is no greater excitement and energy that what comes from a BOY!
A truly beautiful family,  inside and out.  And not a prettier day or spot to be had in Austin, Texas.
Really? Whoever said the eyes are windows to the soul had just met this child....

One of my all time favorite children- she is as spunky and yet sweet as they come. I told her
mom she reminded me of Eloise....

Ah....this red-headed darling...She is as tall (her dad is 6'7!) as she is sweet and beautiful (as her mom!)...
but she's killer on the bball court, swimming pool and soccer field! Be warned!

My Eloise again...

Beautiful, Blue-Eyed Olivia

For the love of BEVO!

Is anything more precious that this family? I adore them all! They are truly joyful!
Sweet baby Ned who just got baptized in Barton Springs Pool! Maybe one the coolest events I've ever been too (literally, as i was IN the water at 9am!). His twin sister,  Lela, is just as perfect and beautiful and took it all in stride. And kudos to the priest who was up to his robe ties in 68 degree water! More photos from that magical morning to come!
One of my very favorite families! I've had the privilege of photographing this family 3 times! Their boys are SO big now, I can't even believe it.  I've also had the honor of photographing the very large extended family which I desperately tried to claim as my own. You gotta love a family that serves you wine while you're shooting them!

New new favorite shoot: what a beautiful family! And a perfect fall day to boot. : )
