Emilie is growing up! | Kiddos

13 09 2010

My cousin’s little girl, Emmy, is 8 months old and growing up fast!   She has been crawling like crazy and getting into everything.  She’s gonna be a handful once she starts walking.  She loves to explore.

For Em’s shoot we played at a park just down the street from the house.   We went early in the morning so the weather was nice and cool.  She had a great time and she had quite the story to tell. 😉

Starting things off with my favorite pic from the day.

Isn’t she adorable?

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! 🙂

Thanks for a fun weekend guys!

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.





Meet Garrison | Children

29 09 2009

Garrison is your typical little boy, full of energy, curiosity and absolutely no fear.  I ran into this little guy on a Sunday afternoon at Fred’s over off of 7th.  He was running around and having a great time.  Lucky for me, his parents were more than happy to let me take his picture.  So, special thanks goes out to them for giving me a chance to practice!  He was such a great sport.  I truly enjoyed trying to keep up with him.

And so it begins…

24 07 2009

So my first official post goes to my first couple of outings with my camera.  The first was a trip to Possum Kingdom for the weekend back in May.  We stayed at my friend’s place which was beyond words.  Next to his cabana was a little seating area with a fan in the tree.  Odd, I know but I thought it was neat.  On our way home I asked if we could stop if we saw any deer.  It was like God smiled on us that day.  We came around a turn and there were 10+ deer just chillin in an open area full of yellow, purple and red flowers.  So beautiful!

My favorite picture from the trip was actually a reflection.  We were walking into Skinny’s in Weatherford(great burgers!) and the guys walked past a puddle that struck my eye.  If you look closely the picture is upside down.  The reflection starts where their legs stop.  I didn’t get the total body shot b/c well, they were hung over so that would have just been cruel.  Turned out to be a cool pic though.

The other pics are from a Sunday fun day at Fred’s Texas Cafe over off 7th.  They also have a great burger, expensive but good.  One pic is a quick shot of a little girl playing around.  The other pic is of a good ole boy.  I like to call his pic, portrait of a patriot. 🙂

Well that’s it for the first post.  I’m still trying to figure out wordpress so hopefully my posts improve over time. 🙂  More to come soon!  Please enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
