Tanya and Michael | Starhill Ranch wedding

What better way to brighten a gloomy Monday than to show you one of the brightest, most fun and happy weddings I have ever shot?

When I first met Tanya on hot day here in Austin, she told me that her wedding was going to colorful.  I’d say that was an understatement!  Tanya and Michael’s wedding was colorful not only in style but in character.  So many amazing friends and family that knew how to celebrate and party.
Tanya’s bubbly personality and Michael’s humor- you just know the guy is a blast- and of course the fact that they had the cutest wedding party, just made this wedding so much fun to shoot!

I have to give props to Tanya’s Sister Sofia for Tanya’s amazing dress!  So so pretty!! That bow is to die for!

Ok- here are just a few of my favorite photos!

Shirin and Manzur | Austin Maternity photography

When I first talked to Shirin on the phone, I knew I was going to have a good time photographing their maternity session.

I just love their style, all the color and the sweetness!
If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for polish and I love a fun manicure.  Seeing Shirin’s mani that day, I just knew we would get along! I mean how pretty is that?

Since we shot these photos, these two lovely people became three by welcoming their sweet baby girl into the world!

Congrats you guys!  I loved hanging out with you!

Oh and if you scroll down to the “shoe” shot…it was totally Manzur’s idea to do the photo with the baby does on his shoes!
I think he is pretty excited about being daddy to a little girl- don’t you think?

So sweet!!

Stefanie and Pete | a Mercury Hall Wedding Austin, TX

Sometimes we all horde the best stuff!
I’ve been sort of hording this wedding! ha!
Stefanie and Pete’s wedding was one of my absolute favorite weddings of last year!
These two got style, they’re fun, creative, got great friends and family and of course that all led to a lovely, amazing and super fun wedding!

I had a amazing time with these two and I’ve got to say that it’s been so fun for me to revisit their wedding photos!

Spring session with Sofie | Austin children’s photography

It’s Spring time in TX and that means we take photos for no reason at all!
I mean does one need a better excuse than beautiful weather, wild flowers and late evening sunshine?  Don’t think so!

So I let my girl wear what she wanted, take along an umbrella her grandma got for her last summer and we just had fun!  Sometimes it’s nice to do a shoot without a plan- because those are sometimes the ones that turn out the best!

And I just have to mention here that the girl came up with all this fun posing and twirling all one her own!  I guess having a lens pointed at her since day one has some benefits!!

Thank you so much Shelley! She styled this shoot- need an apprentice? : )

Thank you so much Shirin! Just a couple of year and you’ll have one of these little stinkers running around your house! I hope your little one is doing great!

Shirin trisha - April 6, 2014 - 10:30 am

Omg !!! Sherry she is precious!! Loved the photos and the whole vibe of it!! Great team work indeed.

Shelley - April 2, 2014 - 8:12 pm

I love these, they are so sweet!

Rebes - April 2, 2014 - 6:53 pm

Melts my heart. Such an amazing photographer and model. She is rocking the super star posing! Love them all. That serious one with Cardigan off the shoulders is money. How gorgeous!

Suzanne Louzau - April 2, 2014 - 4:44 pm

She’s obviously a natural – beauty and model. Methinks you should consider pursuing this if she enjoys it. And the pictures make me think she enjoys it.
