Ning + Diana | Engagement Photos Austin

These are crazy Covid-19 times y’all.

Before we had ever even heard of Coronavirus or “shelter in place”, Ning and Diana booked me for their engagement photos here in Austin.

This session happened the day before we went into full stop quarantine so we were already being cautious.

One thing I never realized is how close I get to my clients or how often I’m making little adjustments to their clothes and hair.

I remained 6 feet or more away from this lovely couple and didn’t touch them even once!

Fortunately these two were easy to pose and photograph from a distance!

Ning and Diana are planning (fingers crossed) a Disney Cruise Wedding for next year!

I’ve been watching Disney Dream Weddings while editing so I’m a bit envious!

So hoping there’s headway on this crazy virus soon so these cute kids can get married!

In all sincerity, I am so thankful for this one last great engagement session before quarantine.

Thank you both so much again and stay safe out there everyone!

Jeff + Gabby | Austin Vacation Photos

Jeff and Gabby celebrated their anniversary here in Austin last summer and yours truly is just now getting around to blogging them!

These two cool Michigan kids have four sons and three of them are teenagers!

Hence…..these guys definitely need a vacay away!

I love this idea of getting a professional portrait session while traveling.

My husband and I would have so many amazing sessions if we had done this!

They started their South Congress date at The Continental Club and I met up with them after they had a quick drink!

It was a Monday so we were able to shoot on South Congress without it being a total sh*tshow!

Thanks so much for visiting the Lone Star State, y’all!

Brannon | Austin Headshot Photos

You guys, this project is amazing and I was honored to photograph the engineer from it!

This is Brannon Veal of ICON Build and he’s an engineer involved with this amazing 3D printed home!

Y’all this entire house is 3D printed on the Vulcan II! How insane as that!??

This amazing structure was featured a few different places like Dwell and Compassionate ATX!

This home exists at the Community First! Village that is a very cool place offering permanent homes to people coming of chronic homelessness.

For our purposes, I concentrated on photographing Brannon, but know this house is just adorable!

We did these branding headshots in the heat of Austin summer and at this point….there was no A/C at the house!

Brannon looked so hip in that green jacket that we toughed out the gnarly heat.

Brannon, thanks so much for having me!

I truly love this project and can’t wait to see what you do in the future!
