fall | austin family photographer lyndsay stradtner

Fall has managed to find it’s way to Central Texas and our house.  To this I say ‘Thank God’ and ‘Adios 110 temps!’

I love this time of year.  So crisp, the smells, the fresh air, temps you can actually go outside in, pumpkin spice latte’s, fall crafts and projects.  Our family embraces it in a big way….




our front door…..this is the kids new favorite spot, they gravitate here.  Teagan loves to pat the scarecrow on the top of its head, rearrange the pumpkins, sit on the haystack and fiddle till his little heart is content.


Jase loves fall projects too….he and the kids made these.  We still need to put the lights in them but they turned out great and so easy to do!


And imagine my surprise when I came home from working this weekend and found they had all made this super cool haunted house out of an old box.  It even lights up!  I was super impressed!


There are too many things about this shot that I love to list.  Way too many.


And my other fave thing about fall at our house….the view from our living room as the sun rises each morning.  Its a blessing and a curse.  Obviously, the blessing is how beautiful it is….the curse?  I’m up early enough to see it.  Ha, not really.  I do love my sleep, but our family is adjusting to a new whopper of a schedule starting this week.  Oh how I miss my precious morning sleept.  But, I think I can say this is my new favorite part of the day when we enjoy it as a family each morning….


Happy fall y’all!

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!!

i feel guilty | austin newborn photographer

i have promised several times to come back and showcase some of my sessions from busy season….yeah, i haven’t done that yet, and i feel kinda guilty.  i also haven’t posted our family snapshots from christmas or my top 10 for 2008.  i will.  promise.  someday lol.

anyway, i was working on finishing up this little guy’s coffee table book tonight and thought i’d share a few more (here is his sneak peek).  he was my last session of 2008 and i can’t think of a better way to end the year….

i just love his pouty lips here….

alright…now i’ll try and come back to share more, working my way backwards to october maybe 😉
