This award winning print (1st place in a photo competition at the local Professional Photographers Association guild.) is from a session I did awhile ago of a couple of adorable cousins. Obviously much of the award credit goes to the handsome dude model! I love photographing families and babies. Although I am really known for my commercial fine art prints, there is nothing quite like creating custom artwork for families that they can enjoy for generations.
I recently had the opportunity to shoot some portraits of Rose along with her family. As an Austin photographer I have the opportunity to shoot everything, including Austin stock images, Austin commercial photography, family portraits baby portraits & senior portraits. It’s all fun and I love the opportunity to make each of them look their very best. Of course when you have a subject like Rose, my job is pretty easy!
You would not know it by looking, but it was probably 100 degrees and about 95 percent humidity when we did this photograph. This is one portrait from a family session I did a couple of weeks ago. (More images from that session to follow.)
My client ‘s sister was in town on a quick visit from New Zealand and his children were about to leave for college so we did a Brother Sister & family session while we had the chance. We got some great shots and everybody seemed to have fun. I am hoping to do another session for the sister and her family in New Zealand soon.
I did a posting a few days ago with a portrait of Jessica’s roommate Jena, stating how I was hoping to be able to do another session with them before they leave for LA at the end of this month. Well, I got my wish. I did a two hour session with Jessica a few days ago & I am doing one with Jena on Friday. For this session I thought we would do a couple of looks that are completely different from each other and from our previous retro looking session. We got a bunch of great images but I thought I just post one of each look for now. (You can see another great photo from the retro session here.) I believe we succeeded nicely. I am quite happy with how all three of these totally different yet great looks for Jessica turned out. Best of luck in Hollywood!
I had the opportunity last week to do some new portraits of Austin, Keisha & Brooklyn. The first portrait I did for Keisha was a maternity session a few weeks before Brooklyn arrived. (You can see that portrait here.) They live out of state so I really don’t get to do this as often as I would like. It’s sure fun when they are here and I can try and capture another phase in the life of the rapidly changing Brooklyn.
Wow, what a smile! Actually, with Jena to title this post “Jena’s Smile” is somewhat redundant. Jena is pretty much always smiling. She tends to brighten any room with her infectious smile. This is another photo of Jena from the portrait shoot we did when the classic cars were in town. I am trying to arrange time to do another session with Jena and her roommate Jessica before they leave for the lights of LA at the end of this month. Wish me luck!
Children’s Portraits can be fun! They can be especially fun if the children can be doing what they want to do verses asking them to sit still & smile. Holly & Maddison were great! I wanted them to have fun & play, and they did a spectacular job of both. I just took a few images while they had fun. As it turned out we all had fun & ended up with some pretty adorable portraits in the process.
When I was shooting Eilya’s family portraits I came up with some suggested settings for her parents portraits as well as settings for her two sisters & little brother. Eilya was pretty specific where she wanted her portrait taken. Eilya wanted to be photographed sitting on her tire swing. It was perfect.
This is the beautiful son of Liliana & Gary at twelve days old. I’ve learned that the younger the infant is, the more cooperative they are. Under two weeks old is best. Brandon was great! He slept, (which is exactly what I wanted) and made all those adorable little baby expressions as he had his little baby dreams. Both of his parents are wonderful so it is no real surprise that he is so adorable. Do you know anyone that is expecting that needs to get an infant portrait on the schedule?
No doubt this lad will some day soon have the ladies singing Kenny Chesney songs. This is one of the individual portraits I did as part of a recent family session. This young man (Judah) was amazingly patient and absolutely adorable. Typically you can not expect a lot of endurance from a two year old but Judah seemed to have fun and could always come up with a great smile.
