TYP Austin – August Event | Networking

8 09 2010

Max’s Wine Dive was the perfect place for Austin’s TYP, Texas Young Professionals, networking event.  It was such a great venue!  We had our own private event room downstairs which gave us and our partnering organization Austin HYP, Habitat Young Professionals, plenty of space to mix and mingle.  We don’t usually pair up with other organizations for our events but I think it was a great idea!  It really allowed everyone involved to expand their social and professional circles.  It also gave HYP a chance to tell us about their upcoming event, Urban Ranch Round-Up!  Tickets are only $25.  There will be live music, great food, and bingo!   Make sure to check it out!

Week 31: Reflection

7 09 2010

This reflection is Austin’s skyline on Town Lake.  I was going for the “butterfly effect.”  You know, like when you were little and you’d create a design with paint on one side of a piece of paper.  Then you would fold the paper in half so the paint got on the other side and duplicated the pattern.  Then you would unfold the paper to show a butterfly or in most cases identical blobs. 🙂  Well that’s the effect I tried to create with this photograph.     

It was taken right at sunset.  I love the color the sun created as it bounced off the buildings.  So pretty!

I’m excited to photograph this skyline at other times and see the difference it makes in the reflection.  This time of night the water was still a little active from kayakers and tour boats.  

What did you think about the reflection being used for the butterfly effect?





Randy Rogers Band CD Release Party | Music

3 09 2010

Love the Randy Rogers Band! 1.) Because their music is great and 2.) Because they remain humble even though their latest CD, Burning the Day, debuted at #2 on the country music charts!!  Way to go guys!

The CD Release Party was held on August 23rd at The RANCH on West 6th.  It was a night full of celebration.  Not only was it Randy’s 2 year anniversary of life without a cigarette(Congrats!).  It was also his Birthday!! 

Side note: Little known fact about me, I LOVE birthdays!  So this other guy and tried to rally the crowded to sing Happy Birthday to Randy but we totally failed.  Sorry Randy.

They played a couple of my old favorites “In My Arms Instead” and “Buy Myself a Chance” along with some new songs from the album.  I really like Burning the Day; it’s a great album!  I’ve had it playing in my car since I got it that night.  Still trying to decide which song I like best.  It’s a close race between “Interstate“-so sweet, “Damn the Rain” -classic heart-break, ” Too Late for Goodbye” -a stand up anthem, “I’ve Been Looking for You So Long” – love and “Starting Over for Last Time” -my new motto.  Ok so that’s almost the entire album… but those are my favorites.  If I had to pick, “Interstate” steals my heart every time.

Another cool thing, our passes from this show also get us into sound check for next week’s performance at Hill’s Cafe as part of KVET’s Free Texas Music Series.  CAN NOT wait!!  Super excited!  Don’t worry there will be pictures covering that event as well 🙂

Are you a RRB fan too?  Have you heard their new album??  If not, it’s a MUST!  If so, what’s your favorite track?





Waiting for Sage | Baby Bumps

27 08 2010

Meet Taly, a soon to be first time mom and a fellow newbie to Austin.  She and her husband, Peter, moved to Austin a few months ago from Vegas.  They have settled in nicely and  are patiently waiting for their little bundle of joy, little Miss Sage Madeline, who is due the beginning of October. 

Taly and I had a lot of fun on this shoot.  She was the perfect model.  She was so laid back and did anything I asked!! Even if it meant laying on a picnic table with block letters on her stomach while people ran past us on the Town Lake trails.  We got a couple of funny looks but mostly awes.   Anywho.  Point of my rambling:  Taly was great, the pictures turned out awesome and I can’t wait to meet Sage!  Enough from me, enjoy the pics!

 

For those of you who follow my work, consider Goal#5 complete 🙂

 

I love how peaceful this picture is especially considering all the activity that was going on around us.

Below: My favorite pic! Peaceful and pretty with a side of great light.  Love it!

So about half way through the shoot we were faced with a major distraction…

We just meant to stop in for a quick wardrobe change but we were soon lured in by the hauntingly delicious aroma of the Cinnabon cinnamon rolls.  She, being a soon to be mom with cravings, and I, having little to no will power when it comes to sweets, decided it was inevitable; we surrendered to the Cinnabon.  It was the best dinner I’ve ever had, all 880 calories of it(and yes, although depressing, that is actually how many calories are in a regular size Cinnabon.  I looked it up) sigh.  Ok, enough with my Cinnabon tangent, back to pictures.

Below: So we ran out of E’s but we just had to, as Tim Gunn would said, make it work.

I would like to give a special thank you to Taly for being an awesome model!  The Austin heat was harsh but she was such a trooper.  Also, thank you to Cinnabon’s online nutritional guide for giving me ample movtivation to hit the gym!

If you’re a soon to be mom, a new mom or you have kids and want to do family portraits, whatever the need, send me  a quick e-mail (larimieleigh@gmail.com) or leave a comment and we can set up a shoot. 

For those of you stopping by to check things out, I would love to hear from you!  What are your thoughts?  Did you have a favorite photo?  Just let me know!  I look forward to hearing from you!

Week 23: Friendship

9 08 2010

This picture cracks me up every time I look at it!  No I didn’t take this pic but it’s my photo challenge so I can bend the rules a bit 🙂  I have been friends with these two girls for over 15 years.   We’ve been through it all…braces, pimples, glasses, boyfriends, ex-boyfriends, birthdays, weddings, traveling…you name it, we’ve been through it together.  I love these girls!
