As I sat down to blog about this session, it hit me that I have known these three amazing people for a bit over ten years. A decade. Pam and I met in late summer of 2007 at our local Moms Club meeting. She was the President, I was expecting our second son, and my … Continue reading Ekrot Family | Austin Family Photographer
As a parent, I know all too well the days of childhood are fleeting. The days, when we are in the thick of it may feel endless. Having a family session, in any season (of life and/or the actual calendar year) can feel overwhelming - it's one more thing to add to the laundry list. … Continue reading Courtney Family | Austin Texas Family Photographer
This lovely mom and I met a few years ago at a birthday party (at one of those hoppy houses that make any breathing mammal have an anxiety attack... No? Just me then?) We had a few mutual friends and the 'you two should meet, you both have 4 kids' introduction was made. Let me … Continue reading Hight Family | Austin Texas Family Photographer
It may sounds totally cheesy but it's true - my session with the Leeper Family was easy, like a Sunday Morning... even if we did shoot on a Sunday evening. This adorable family of 4 were naturals in front of the camera. Their joy and family connection is so genuine; I love how they truly … Continue reading Leeper Family | Austin Texas Family Photographer
It's have been so lucky to work with this family since before my business was really open! Lissa was one of the Assistant Directors at the preschool my boys have all attended, and where I had taught off and on. Watching their three kiddos grow up has been a gift - at our first session … Continue reading Holguin Family | Austin Family Photographer

I have ‘known’ Lisa for a little over a year as our boys attend the same school, so I was thrilled when I got to work with the Barnes Family. When chatting about their session, I instantly felt Lisa … Continue reading Barnes | Austin Texas Family Photographer
Gwen and I met days before she gave birth to their handsome son. We definitely clicked and realized we were liked minded in all the right ways - love of family, styles of parenting, and of course (the most important) all things craft related! Oh, and our deep passion for really delicious dessert food. Gwen … Continue reading Rubenstein | Austin Texas Family Photographer
Earlier this month, I was blessed to attend the highly coveted Blair + Thurston Retreat that was being held on Bainbridge Island (swoon!). To say I was craving this retreat is an understatement. I needed it - I felt it in my heart, soul, and bones that THIS was what I needed. A few days … Continue reading Retreat. Soul Search.
With the oldest boys in school full time - a reality I still struggle to face - I am blessed to spend a few great hours with our youngest. My baby. The baby. Who by the way is NOT a baby. We always thought our third was the strongest willed child we'd have (still affectionally … Continue reading The fleeting days
I have come to realize my heart has the ability, and capacity, to madly love more than one city. Officially, my heart now spans from the East Coast (where I was born and spent countless years of my life with family) to the great State of Texas (where my heart shines as bright as the … Continue reading To Seattle, with love.
