Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Today is Thanksgiving and I kicked off the day with some of my best friends at the Austin Turkey Trot.  It’s become a tradition.  I don’t do long runs usually, but when I do, I like to do one downtown.  It’s my city and I love it.

I’m thankful for many things in life.  My family.  My amazing kid, Dylan.  My great husband.  I’ve known him since I was 17, now going on 45, it’s pretty awesome.   They are my boys.  And for the past couple of days, they went to Houston to visit in-laws and cousins.  This is the busiest time of the year for me as a photographer, so I’m thankful for the time to get some work done.

As mom and wife, there are responsibilities.  Let’s not kid ourselves, it’s a job.  So I’m glad I’ve discovered fitness as a hobby, which has given me back some me time.  I think we all need a little of that.

I’m extremely thankful for my friends and workout buddies.  They really give me the support to do what I really enjoy everyday.

These are my people.


The Nutt Family | Miracle Book 2018 | Austin Family Portrait Photographer

This portrait session with the Nutt family last weekend was not just for their holiday cards, but also for the Dell Children’s Miracle Book.  This project raises money for the Dell Children’s Hospital.  I’m thankful to be a photographer for The Miracle for the 5th year.  And also thankful for the wonderful clients who participate in this charity.


The Bui Family | Austin Family Photographer

It’s been a really busy couple of weeks.  Lots of clients are taking vacation time while the kids are out of school, so lots and lots of portrait sessions happening.  Today I’m thankful for my great clients like the Bui’s.  I’ve been their photographer since they had their first baby.  They’ve changed jobs, moved, and back.  I’m still their photographer every year.  I get to follow their adventures and Facebook too.  They are my clients that I feel are my friends.

The Moreland Family | Austin Family Photographer

Gorgeous family right?  Kristi is one of my favorite girls.  Cute, funny, and totally fun to be around.  I met her at the gym, we have the same trainer.  There is never a dull moment with her at the gym.  I haven’t gotten to see her much this year since she’s been busy with new baby, but glad she’s back at it and now I’ll finally be able to see her more.
