A Common Bond

It's always an honor when a close friend asks me to photograph their family, wedding or engagement.  I always feel a bit of pressure in attempting to capture real smiles and attitude so hopefully I succeeded!  I love this family!  Each one of them is special and wonderful in their own way.  We bond over all things un-American as they hail from Germany. We love you guys! x

From Austin with Love...

I had the pleasure of photographing my lovely friend and her awesome family the other day.  With three young girls, life is never dull for Mindy and Nathan.  Avery, Emerson and Irene had us giggling and playing through most of this session with some bubble blowing and lively, little girl dancing and posing thrown in for good measure.  We'll be sad to see them leave our rainy west coast but warmer climates beckon...  Good luck my friends, we'll miss you!
