I'm always so excited to take some Sanderson family pictures.
I know that I'm biased, because I'm their aunt and I've been photographing them since they were born, but these kids are the greatest. And I kind of like their parents too.
I love this family.
I've photographed them every year since moving to Austin.
They're just as fun, delightful and colorful as you'd imagine they are from looking at these photos.
Love you, Cottams!
You know how you just love people from the minute you meet them?
Emily is that kind of people.
Good to the core. Grounded in who she is. Loves her home and her people. And writes some of my favorite books I've ever read.
Whenever I'm asked where we should take family photos, I always steer clients toward their home. I think capturing your family in the place where they feel most comfortable is just magical.
This was a magical shoot.
We planned to do the shoot around the exterior of the Lay's home, but then torrential surprise rain drove us inside and forced us to get a little creative. And it was such a fun morning.
This little crew fiercely loves each other and the home they've built together, and it was an honor to capture some of that with them.
I'm a child of the 80s. So, when Whitney Houston sang that she believed the children were the future, I think I really internalized it.
After putting in 13 years as a public school music teacher, I feel like I've got pretty good radar when it comes to spotting kids that are going to take the world by storm.
Braden is one of those young men.
He's charming, he's talented, and most importantly? He's kind. He notices people who need help. He loves he's family.
I guess I'm pretty much saying that I believe that Braden is the future.
I love it when families are committed to capturing their family in all its stages.
The Oldhams are at such a cool stage of life - two kids in college, two kids in high school. And while faces don't change much at this age, love and learning and relationships do.
Here's to capturing and recording the good stuff at all ages and stages of life.
Meeting new families and spending time getting to know them while we take photos is pretty much my favorite thing. ESPECIALLY when you know from the moment they step out of their car that they are your kind of people.
Yep. The Jones family. They are my kind of people.
Totally easy going. Love each other and are unafraid to show it. Laugh together constantly. And the real clincher?
They were totally game to keep taking photos when a huge cloudburst popped up.
Wet. Skipping. Laughing.
My kind of people.
I love all my client families, but this family? We're cousins.
Not really. But they're the Robinsons and we're the Robisons, and our kids are almost the same age. We both have spitfire-y red headed daughters that are the same age, and we just love them.
I was so honored to get to capture this moment in time for them - welcoming another little redhead to the family.
I've heard it said that you can't possibly love a child too much. I think that's true, but I have to say, I worry that it might be possible with this little guy. *grin*
Phasellus a imperdiet turpis, nec varius orci. Phasellus rutrum sapien non lobortis efficitur. Aliquam sem libero, tempor vitae interdum non, malesuada sollicitudin nunc. Nam finibus est id tincidunt mollis. Morbi sagittis ultrices turpis, eget aliquam purus aliquet sit amet.
It's a Texas tradition.
It's a family tradition.
We shout "Bluebonnets!!" when they start to appear on the roadsides, and then it's a waiting game. Waiting for our favorite patch to have just enough flowers to head out and capture our annual photos.
We love it. Love the yearly look back. And love the frozen yogurt (AKA bribe) when we're done.
Taking the hassle out of family photos since 2007.
I have been so excitedly showing off your photos, I have been remiss in saying, thank you and what beautiful work you do. You have captured the family and have made all of us look better than we deserve and we appreciate your talent!

– Ashley L.
Oh my goodness, they are so FABULOUS! thanks so much. You really captured them…don’t know how you do it!
– Natalie C.
This woman is so gifted! I watched her bring the shyest, most hesitant child to blooming life before her camera. She has such an ability to make connections with children that she really brings out the inner spirit -- the child you love....
