This momma to be was absolutely glowing tonight, she’s gorgeous!  I think it’s pretty clear her husband adores her, would you look at that look of love in his eyes?!

There are very few things that make me more giddy than living in Texas in the spring and a momma who show up for their maternity session in cowboy boots.  I so love living in Austin.  Have I mentioned that before?  Yeah, I guess I have 😉  I hope you like these K & J, I can’t wait to meet your little one!!

soon to be three | leander maternity photographer

I was so excited about my mini maternity session tonight with Christy & Dominic.  Christy and Jase used to work together and she was a big part of getting my family over here to Austin, so I was super excited to meet her!

Christy & Dominic, thank you for enduring the cold and wind tonight, you were troopers!  I hope you like your sneak peek and I’ll see you (3!) in a few weeks!!

so worth it | austin pregnancy photographer

I know it can be a total pain in the butt when I ask my clients to get up reallllllly early in the morning in an effort to “catch the good light”.  I always appreciate it when they humor me.  This beautiful couple was more than happy to meet just after dawn as the dad-to-be was headed out for one last camping with the guys weekend before baby comes just as soon as we were done!  Motivation!

I must confess that I thought of this mom-to-be enjoying a quiet weekend with her feet propped up, relaxing, reading when I walked into my crazy house after their session….screaming kids, diapers to be changed, toddlers to wrestle, sippy cups to fill.  I was a little envious in that moment.  I don’t even remember what all those things feel like!  LOL!  Its such an amazing thing to be right on the cusp of change like this sweet couple is…..


This post is why I aim for those early morning hours…..light….sweet, perfect, beautiful, light.  Oh I wish I could bottle it up and unleash it at my whim.


I’m pretty sure I sounded like a blubbering idiot as I gushed over the light that morning….








M, you look so beautiful pregnant!  Thanks to you both for getting up so early!  I can’t wait to see you again in just a few weeks and meet your new little one 🙂

ETA:  This was a mini session…..did you know you can add on a mini maternity session when you book a newborn session?  It’s a great way to document your pregnancy without the need of 25-30 images that a full session produces.  Especially when you are about to fill your walls with images of your new bundle of joy!  If you would like more info on adding a mini maternity to a newborn session, just email me for details!

As the sun peeked out from the horizon this morning, I took a look out the window and told Jase I had a feeling the light was going to be amazing for this session.  It was.  It soooooo was…..


This sweet couple is expecting their first on Thanksgiving and it was such a joy to meet up with them first thing this morning to capture their last days as a family of two.  I can’t wait to meet their new little one!  Congrats M & D, I’ll see you soon!!
