Studio Headshots Austin

In the photography world, headshots can get a bad rap.

Seen often as boring, un-emotive work, I guess I can understand where this negativity comes from.

Initially I’m sure I thought the same thing but now I really love photographing headshots.

Here’s a few examples of images I’ve photographed in my studio on South Lamar over the past few months.

This is my super hot friend Lindsey. We refer to the above images as her “women in yogurt commercials” look.

Henrik is also super cool and graced the cover of Counselor magazine last year! Person of the year was in my studio y’all!

I would still completely consider these to be headshots but definitely a lot more fun and creative!

Here’s my buddy Caroline who decided headshots were exhausting.

Miss A | Boudoir Photography Austin

I’m happy to share a bridal boudoir session from 2017 with you today!

This gorgeous woman was the first boudoir client to be photographed in my new-ish studio on South Lamar!

Miss A came in for a bridal boudoir session and I loved all the white lingerie she chose for the shoot!

Her long, thick, dark hair and and gorgeous bone structure were a dream to photograph!

Also, so jealous of those long legs and killer shoes Miss A owns!

And can anyone not adore these shoes? There the Follies Strass 100 bridal Christian Louboutin!

Eat PB & J only for a couple months and buy them here!

Many congrats on becoming a Mrs. and thanks so much for being brave for me!

Hair and makeup done by my girl Lauren of Hint of Shimmer!

Jeff + Shay | South Congress Engagement Austin

It’s no secret that this was one of my favorite engagement sessions of 2017!

We had talked once or twice on the phone but I hadn’t met handsome Jeff or the sublime Dr. Shay until the day of their shoot.

The moment they stepped out of the car, I was pumped! Look at these outfits!!!

Bright, primary colors that work amazingly well together!

The clothes are fitted and no one is “wasting a waist”!

Shay’s lips, nails and shoes are all the same bitchin’ shade of red!

I was floored by their style!  Jeff even wore my favorite color, bright mustard yellow!

I know bright colors are not everyone’s cup of tea but I do think that they photograph better in many of the environments I like for photography.

These two both moved here from Florida (Shay’s original from Michigan) rather recently and I loved seeing my stomping ground of South Congress through fresh eyes.

Jeff and Shay are getting married on Maui in 2019 and it’s definitely going to be a killer experience!

After blowing my mind with their more casual outfit, they then put on this elegant attire!

I know right, it looks like the cover of Forbes Magazine’s “Top Power Couples to Watch 2018”.
