Meet Catalina | Kiddos

3 06 2010

I met Jess and David two years ago when I came to Austin with a friend for the CapTexTri.  They let us stay at their beautiful home that weekend.  Between the late night two steppin, the boys competing in a triathlon and an Indiana Jones marathon we had a great time.  As most people do, we became Facebook friends so we could keep in touch.

Flash forward two years, I now live in Austin and David sent me a message on Facebook about the city, where I was living and working.  After the post of my second cousin, we ended up talking about my photography.  He said he wanted to have some photos taken of his daughter, Catalina.  Her first birthday was coming up so we set up a session.  It was a big week for Cat not only did she turn 1 she also became a model.  I mean, come on, are you kidding me with her cuteness!?!

Check it out, gettin her horns up already!  She’s a Longhorn for life!

Happy Birthday Catalina! 🙂

Meet mi familia

11 12 2009

This year, the day after Thanksgiving was turned into family photo day!   Mainly because I wanted/needed the practice and my family loves me so they were willing. 🙂  It was such a nice relaxing day.   We went out to my grandparents’ farm and looked through old family photos, drove over to Brownwood to eat at Underwood’s (yum!) and ended up back in the big ole town of De Leon.  We posted up at the old train station for most of the shoot which was once the heart of the town.  We played on the tracks and the platform where my Papa said he used to catch the train as kid.  So much history in such a tiny town.  Here are my favorites from the day.  Enjoy!

And last but certainly not least, my favorite picture of the day.





Val + Andrea | Mother + Daughter

9 12 2009

Andrea and I have been friends since our freshmen year of college.  We both went potluck and the good Lord above put us together.  I really do feel blessed to have her in my life; not  only is she smart and beautiful, she’s also caring and awkwardly hilarious.  I love her and her family dearly.  So when she asked if I could help out with her Mom’s surprise party, I jumped at the chance. 

“The Plan:” Mother, daughter photo shoot/ practice for me

The Actual Plan: Keep Val distracted until 5:45p.m. for her surprise birthday party being set up at her own house. 🙂

We had a fun time playing decoy.  Luckily during their outfit selection Val suggested Andrea and I come over for dinner since her husband, Mike, had been making so much food earlier that day (gee I wonder why he was doing that 😉 ).   So we didn’t even have to make anything up!  She invited us to her own party!   Once we got downtown we only had about an hour or two before Andrea and I had to start “acting hungry” so we made good use of our time.  We were able to test a couple of different spots and we even found a hillside straight out of Ireland right here in downtown Fort Worth.  Greatness, definitely using that site again!

Special thanks to these ladies and Happy Birthday to them both!!!   They did a fantastic job and I was very grateful for the opportunity, decoy or not.
