It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas - Austin Photographer

A little Christmas cheer from our house to yours! 
I had a few spare moments tonight while the rest of the family was watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and I was able to get in some shots with my "real" camera of our Christmas decorations.  Most years I am running behind and life is crazy and the only pictures I ever get are with my little point and shoot camera.  I'm not sure what's different this year, but this week has been...relaxed.  It is wonderful to step back and enjoy my family and this season. 

Merry Christmas to all of you!!

These are some of our favorite ornaments and our Christmas cards.

Fisherman's Park - Bastrop Photographer

I met this lovely family at Fisherman's Park in Bastrop, Texas.  We had originally planned a morning session, but decided to switch to an evening session at the last minute to try to avoid a chilly morning.  I'm so glad we did!  The weather cooperated with us and we got some really lovely evening light. 

Y'all enjoy!!

PS - I am starting to like Bastrop more and more every time I visit the little downtown area.  Really cute shops, great places to eat, a pharmacy with a REAL ice cream counter and genuine small town feel.

Celebrating Life - Austin Child Photographer

I was so excited today to see the completion of a project that I started earlier this summer.  The Celebrating Life Calendar 2011 is available for purchase with all proceeds going to support the Austin Pregnancy Resource Center.   In addition to that, the center also decided to display all of the portraits in their entry way for everyone to see as they walk in the door.  I got to help hang them today and snapped this shot to share with you.  (Just a point and shoot camera, but you get the idea!)

If you are interested in supporting the center by purchasing a calendar, let me know.
 They are $10.00 (if you pick one up from me) or $12.00 with shipping.

Family Photo Session Giveaway - Austin Family Photographer

It's been a little over a month since we had our last giveaway around here, so I thought something fun was in order to celebrate Thanksgiving!  I am thankful for MY family, both immediate and extended.  They are so very special to me.  I am also thankful for all the families I've had the chance to work with over the last couple of months - they are such fun, wonderful people.  It has been a busy month!  I have been all over Central Texas doing sessions in Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Bastrop, San Marcos, and Gruene and it has been a BLAST!!  Thank you all so much for letting me capture your sweet families!

I'm including below some of my favorites from recent sessions.  (I had to limit the number of shots so there wouldn't be way too many on this post, so please don't feel bad if yours wasn't included - there are so many more I would have LOVED to include.)

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is post a comment on THIS blog post telling me which picture is YOUR favorite.  If I reach 200 comments by the end of the day on Friday (11/26/10) then I will use to pick a winner.  The winner receives a free mini-session.  (A mini-session is 30 minutes long and includes 5 digital negatives.)  Only one comment per person, please.  Your comment is your entry.  (If you already won a mini-session from me this year, you will not be eligible to win, sorry.)

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!!









Share this giveaway with a friend so we can be sure to reach 200 comments!!  Thank you!

Welcome Baby S - Austin Newborn Photographer

Welcome to this precious baby boy!!  We love him and his family and are so happy that he's arrived!  For some reason, I was just in love with so many of these images in black & white that I kept picking them for this sneak peek... maybe I am just in a black and white mood?  Who knows why, but I hope you enjoy!
