Emily ~ Austin Senior Portraits

An Austin senior portraits session at One Eleven East in Hutto, TX

This girl! I must say, before you ever meet Emily, you always, always, always pick up on her really open, friendly vibe. She has a way of making anyone she talks to feel very at ease and comfortable.

And you know what? That made my work pretty easy! Ha! I called it “work.”

Any time spent with Emily is = fun. She’s ridiculously sweet and animated and all kinds of fun to photograph. She puts on joy and wears it so well.

The fun wasn’t just in having Emily as a subject but she picked One Eleven East for her venue. I am not sure there’s a more fun venue to use as a studio out that way. They are amazingly accommodating hosts! The main room in the venue is lovely with a huge window but we were also able to use the new outdoor area. Super pretty! There’s no shortage of pretty light and it’s not hard to find a bit of nature to traipse around in. Love it so much!

Our time together was such a blast and it was really hard to pick favorites. Emily, wishing you all the best when you are at Baylor. By God’s grace you’ll do amazing at whatever you set your mind to do. It will be fun to watch what you do!

Just a little tip: when you pick a location for a senior portrait session—or any session, really—pick a place you absolutely love and enjoy spending time in. That element of happy familiarity instantly makes you comfortable and it translates so well into the images we make together. The aesthetics of a place you love is really a part of your personal story and that’s such a joy to share in photographs.

Seniors: get in touch. It’s never too early to plan for your portraits!

Josh R ~ Austin Senior Portrait Photographer

An Itty Bitty Mini Session works perfectly when your schedule is tight

We were very fortunate that we had great friends refer us for Josh’s Austin senior portrait session. It’s such an honor to be friends’ photographer and find they’re happy and our name gets shared. That’s how we get the lion’s share of our work, and we love it.

Josh’s mom, Pam, saw the senior session we did for Vicky (super fun session so you should go and see) and decided to get in touch. It’s super hard to tell, but Josh isn’t the kind who is very comfortable in front of the camera. Not to mention, we had to fit the session between school, mom’s work schedule and Josh’s work schedule. Even though our time slot wasn’t that long, we got some pretty awesome images of him and want to share our favorites:

Sometimes it’s just difficult to schedule a photography session because of a busy schedule. Our lives can be full of to-dos, events and, well, stuff that needs our attention. And usually NOW, am I right? It’s really important to us not only to draw out someone’s personality in their portraits but also be sensitive to our clients’ needs. So we try to make it really easy to fit in a session. Give us 20 minutes and we’ll get you real, lovely pictures of you!

Get in touch to schedule your Itty Bitty Mini Session. It’ll be fun!

Simi ~ Austin Portrait Photographer

So love this girl! Feeling so super blessed that I get to do Simi’s portraits each year. Austin has so much to offer, we had a fun variety of backdrops to compliment a creative, fun person.

Speaking of fun, you should check out her site! Or her previous session here and here.

As usual, she delivered a ton of personality along with her signature colorful, big wardrobe of outfits to play with. It’s so not work with this friend. It’s all fun when she lets me play and experiment and the results are so awesome because *she* is!

What I love the most: she smiles with every bit of her being. One of my favorite real, lovely people.

Keeping your portraits updated regularly is a great idea. Updated imagery keeps your social media profiles current and fresh. Get in touch if you’re ready to schedule yours!
