Engagements at the Natural Gardener in Austin, TX Lindsay & Marshall

Right away at our initial meeting when I heard that Lindsay and Marshall met through their love of gardening, I immediately felt like we should incorporate that in to their engagement sessions. Before I knew it, we were meeting up at The Natural Gardener in South Austin. I literally had no idea what to expect, having never ever gardened myself and therefore, having never been to a huge gardening supply store.

It was beautiful. There were plants everywhere, colors everywhere, a random goat house, tree swing, beautiful pots.. I could go on. I felt inspired right away by the location and lucky to have clients who love to try places that mean something special. We had a lovely afternoon exploring the grounds and I’m more than excited to do part two of their engagements at their comfy home in just a few weeks:)

Hollie’s Maternity Portraits at Zilker Park

I was at my dear friends Todd and Hollie’s home on Monday evening for their son’s first birthday. I loved being able to celebrate Micah. While I was there, I was so happy to see photos of their cute little family on the wall that I had taken. It made me think back to all of the sessions that I’ve been so lucky to document for the Meador family; maternity, newborn, and family with more to come. Then it made me think to my blog and… wait a second.. I haven’t posted any of them?! So, we’re back tracking so that we can get current with this lovely family.

Hollie is amazing. She is beautiful and KIND (so kind) and easy to talk to and glowing, at all times. She’s just the type of person that you are so happy to know, that makes your life that much better. Back when these photos were taken, she was SO pregnant and SO excited to meet her baby, Micah. I could already tell that she was going to be one of the greatest mothers.

Portraits of a Julie in Austin, TX

Last Sunday, my friend Julie asked me if I wanted to take some pictures for fun later in the evening. FOR FUN!? Heck yes. It’s really awesome being friends with people who share your same passion and who understand that driving around until you find the right side road is a very important task. And that finding that golden light is like finding a pot of gold.

Julie is gorgeous and I was so inspired by her colors, her love for life, and the trees that we were surrounded by. We found this road down the street from my house and although there MIGHT have been a no trespassing sign.. we had to.

The first picture on the right is one of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken. So the rash I’ve had for the past week on my neck, arms, and face from the trees we played in.. worth it.

April & Tanner: A wedding at Vista on Seward Hill

April and Tanner are freaking cute. They giggle together constantly and smiles do not leave their faces for hours on end. Literally, April is one of the happiest looking people I’ve ever had the pleasure of being around. I had so much fun with them at their engagements, which made me even more excited to be a part of their wedding day. They are so kind and full of love that I never once saw anything phase them in the whole planning process and through the craziness of the day. They were so excited to see each other before the ceremony, and then they were just happy to be together.

Their day definitely did not feel like a job. It felt like I was just celebrating two friends who are SO right for each other, while holding a camera the whole time.
