Sugar and Spice: Little Kaylin

I’m always honored when a friend asks me to photograph their newborn.  I’m even more thrilled when it’s their first child.  This was the case with Kaylin. She was born in the heat of the Texas summer, but her gorgeous parents were cool as cucumbers — especially for being first-timers. Thank you Ishan and Opal for allowing me to document this special moment for your new family.


Sharing The Goodness – Sarah and Daniel

Last week, I spent a day in the lovely little town of Kyle, Texas with 9 other photographers.  We were at the studio of the talented photographer, Clayton Austin, as hosted his “Share the Goodness” workshop.  It was a great experience, full of knowledge sharing, inspiration, plenty of discussion and a few laughs (thanks to the awesome white sangria). We had a short live shoot with Sarah and Daniel in the late afternoon.  Here’s some images I shot under the big oak tree with my 50mm 1.4 lens and my 85mm 2.8 tilt-shift lens. I also shot some images with my iPhone in and around town.


Our Pretty House in the Texas Hill Country

We will miss this place, we call “The Yeller House”, when it becomes home for another lucky person.  Our pretty house in the Texas Hill Country is on the market.  The MLS listing has all of the standard photos. But, I wanted to share some of the more artsy photos I’ve taken of our house over the years.

The house was built 5 years ago using a vintage Texas farmhouse plan. The rest of the houses in the development were also constructed using vintage plans.

The street is named Primrose for a reason. Lots of primrose bloom in the spring.

Harper: The Prettiest Little Girl in Georgetown

Jason, a friend and co-worker recently had his first child, a little girl they named Harper. We’re all so excited for Jason and his lovely wife, Jenna. This child is so beautiful and is so loved. I’m honored to have been chosen to take the newborn photos of little Harper. She’s my youngest subject to date at a mere 9 days old. Welcome to the world, sweet Harper!



Family – Jonathan and Julie

I was very pleased when I got a note from Julie requesting that I take their family photographs. Her husband, Jonathan, is also a photographer (he takes amazing shots of bands performing, especially at SXSW). He’s often photographing his family but Julie mentioned that Jon is often behind the camera rather than in front of it (I can relate).  I consider Jonathan and Julie dear friends and I’ve worked with Jonathan for many years (we’re cube neighbors). I hope these images have captured the beautiful spirit of their sweet family. Happy Mother’s Day, Julie!!


Mas Colores: Spring in Texas

Photographing wildflowers during springtime in the Texas hill country  has become an annual tradition for me. After the drought last year, Mother Nature made a splendid recovery by gracing us with soothing rains and a bounty of colorful wildflowers.  This is one reason why we made our home in the Texas hill country.

Here’s a small set of images taken near New Berlin, TX.
