** Risky Business Workshop **

I had the extreme honor and pleasure of attending the Risky Business Workshop this week.  My mind is packed full of knowledge.  I learned so much about business, marketing, shooting, editing, networking and just plain ole life in general.  Many many thanks so Caroline and Ben of the very talented and amazing Caroline + Ben Photography and Adam and Sarah of the equally talented and WOW’ing In Tandem Photography for leading us and helping us grow.  I enjoyed meeting everyone and can’t say enough wonderful things about the experience.  Check out just some of the stuff I learned on shooting, lighting, composing and editing.  Again….Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

** Stonehouse Villa Styled Groomal Session ** {Austin Wedding Photographer}

I have been doing weddings for a while, but really started booking like crazy this year. So, I decided to try something new and do a styled Groomal Session, which is a WONDERFUL way to do relaxed pictures of a bride and groom AFTER their wedding instead of trying to rush around and get the perfect shots on the day of the wedding. Thank you to everyone that was involved in pulling this together. I appreciate everyone’s help, time and talent. Thank you SO, SO much to the wonderful couple Avery and Jeff who are soon to celebrate their very first wedding anniversary.

** A Day in the Life of The Cooks ** {Austin Lifestyle Photographer}

I have been doing photography for my entire life, professionally for 6 1/2 years and I have ALWAYS wanted to do a session like this.  One that details the “every day” of a family.  And since this little family is so important to me, they agreed to be my test subjects.  I kinda love every single bit of this. Thank you Cook Family for letting me document your special things you do each and every day.

 

Grocery Store Shenanigans…

On to the homefront to start preparing dinner to grill for when Daddy gets home…

Playing on the iPad, Arts and Crafts, Feeding the Fishie, Watching TV, Playing Hide and Go Seek…waiting on Daddy.

Daddy’s Home!!!!!!

Going Outside to Grill…

Time to Eat!!!

Someone got in trouble for “not picking flowers”…

Dessert at Yogurt Experience…

Bathtime Routines…

Family Hug Tradition (they must ALL be present or no family hug).

They read to the boys every single night.

Mickey, Bunny and Dog…

Goodnight Mommy and Daddy…

Riley is the first one up to get snuggles and back scratches from Mommy…

And then Kace is soon to follow…

Bubba and Baby Brother…

Mommy Makes a YUMMY Breakfast…

Swim Lessons…

This was by far one of the THE MOST fun sessions I have ever had the pleasure of doing.  Thank you to the entire Cook Family for letting me into your lives for the day. I love each of you guys with all my heart.

** Carrington Crossing Styled Bridal Shoot #2 ** {Austin Bridal Photographer}

My second session of the day was equally as amazing as the first!!  Thank you to Jordan Monday for modeling for me.  I met Jordan almost 3 years ago at a wedding she was the coordinator for and I knew when I met her that I had to photograph her one day.  Thank you for coming to the new venue to help me out.  You are no only a knock-out but a very sweet, fun, hilarious and generous girl.  Thank you to Vannessa with Makeup by Vannessa for coming and working in the heat and standing on your feet for several hours straight.  You are a true artist, my dear friend. WOW, WOW, WOW is all I can say.  Thank you to Monica of Monica Roberts Photography for letting me borrow this gorgeous dress for Jordan to wear. You are the BEST!!  Thank you to Wow Factor Design Co. for going above and beyond in the bouquet department.  Not only do I want to say thank you for donating your time and materials, but your BEAUTIFUL artwork in the form of the bouquet you guys made for my shoot.  I will recommend you to ANYONE that asks if I have a Floral recommendation.  Thank you again to Cari of Carrington Crossing for helping me with posing and “getting it right”.  Without all of you there is no way my shoot would have been as wonderful as it was.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
