One Eleven East || Austin Family Photographer

I had the honor of shooting at the beautiful One Eleven East in Hutto, Texas for a precious family session. It is a historic building that was built in 1893 and is now an event/studio space! It is a natural-light photographer's dream because of the ample light that pours into the space from the beautiful windows. 

As we walked into the venue and set our stuff down, little Annabel was already on the move exploring the space and wanted to run around the bottom floor since it's a big open area. Since she preferred to be on the move, we moved with her! We were playing chase, spinning in circles, and dedicated a lot of time for tickles :) I love sessions like this because they require me to be on my toes and constantly ready to capture moments, but also because they are REAL moments! These moments are not posed or positioned, but simply photographing her as she wants to be. Does this make it more fast paced? Sure. But is it worth it? ALWAYS!  

Champ family, you guys are so precious and I love when you guys are behind my camera! Thanks for sweating with me during this session as Texas decided to be about 90 degrees this day. 

Coincidental moments || Austin lifestyle newborn photographer

I love walking into a home and meeting clients for the first time but get the feeling like we've been friends for years. This family was so welcoming and down-to-earth and I instantly felt at ease. There were so many moments throughout this session that stood out to me. Firstly, their daughter's first name is one of my favorite baby names because it is my grandfather's middle name. Their daughter's middle name is a shortened version of my late mother's name and the same as my nieces middle name. Lastly, when I walked into their home, I overheard a familiar song playing in their living room. "Mama's song" by Carrie Underwood was playing, which was mine and my mother's favorite song. I knew in that moment that this session would be special, and it definitely was! As the session went on and we got to know each other more, I looked over and saw one of Trevor's construction hard hats. I asked about his work and then noticed the company's name on the side. I happened to know someone who worked there and we just started laughing because we had so many coincidental moments! It's such a small world...

Breanne's sweet mother was there and it was so refreshing to have an extra set of hands! She quickly became my "assistant" for the session and was eager to do anything to help! I loved being able to meet her and to see her hold her granddaughter with such pride! Grandmothers are the absolute best!  

Breanne and Trevor, you two have an amazing family and are so blessed with the sweetest little girl! You guys already have a hold on parenting and are doing it so well! Thank you for welcoming me into your home and into your family! I will always remember your session and hold it close to my heart. 

P.S. This vintage red couch has been passed down to Breanne from previous generations. What a precious piece of furniture to treasure forever!
