Bull Creek District Park Portrait Session // Austin Minis

“There is a freedom you begin to feel the closer you get to Austin, Texas.” // Willie Nelson

As most of you know I recently I was fortunate enough to photograph a wedding out in Austin, Texas. And as a first time traveler to Austin I was both terrified and in love with the city. While Austin is downright beautiful this midwestern girl struggled a bit traveling on the highways in Texas. Needless to say, there are a lot of overpasses and they can get quite scary! Sorry Austin peoples... these are just the facts.

However, traveling on these terrifying roads led to a lot of fun and amazing things though. Like my first time trying In-N-Out Burger, making amazing new friends, and catching up with some awesome people for my Austin Mini Sessions!

In June 2014 I second shot a wedding with Conforti Photography where I met Leslie + Amanda. Two amazingly beautiful women with equally beautiful souls! When Leslie saw I was going to being ATX she definitely wanted to book a mini session! And then Leslie told the woman she nannies for about the sessions and she booked too!! It was definitely fun catching up with Leslie + Amanda again and then meeting Leigh + Robin and their adorable little kiddos!

Robin + Leigh + The Kiddos

This little family was so stinkin’ cute. Their little boys were so fun and the oldest reminded me of my little guy. Who I missed very dearly while I was away in Texas!

Mama and her littlest boy, he’s got the biggest and cheesiest smile. And then also... those eyes!

Leslie + Amanda

These two girls are just the sweetest and the cutest. Leslie had one request. A photo of their shoes (*cough* her boots *cough*) with them in the background. Boom. Happy to oblige. Plus, how cute are they?

When I asked Leslie + Amanda to do a walking photo they reminded me of the struggle they had at their engagement session and wedding. I remembered their wedding day it came off a little awkward. No awkwardness here. Just two beautiful ladies.

When these two walked up to their session with a bottle of champagne and two glasses I was like.. “Yassssss” you two know me so well. So we popped some champagne and made some beautiful photos.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious to me that my smoke bomb photo from Lindsey + Eric’s wedding is becoming super popular. So when Leslie + Amanda asked me if we could do one I was super excited to try my hand at it again! Plus, purple smoke bomb?! Yes please!
