Michelle + Greg | Austin Engagement Photos

It’s funny how you can shoot at a location over and over and each time it’s a bit different!

I’ve been photographing couples on South Congress for the better part of seven years and it is always a new experience!

Many of these locations I chose after seeing Michelle in this smoking hot red dress!

It’s no secret red is one of my favorite colors to incorporate into a portrait session!

The only negative thing is that I’ve had that cheesy 80’s song “Lady in Red” stuck in my head for a few hours! Hah!

So wrong…yet so right?

Greg is a rad dj/musician so lord knows he prolly knows that classic hit!

These two have been together since meeting in booming Lubbock, Texas and I love Michelle’s unique engagement ring!

These guys were great to be around!

We talked Game of Thrones’ fan theories, the merits of fake laughter and kitchen slow dancing!

Many congrats to these two cute kids! 

Doesn’t Michelle kinda look like Kate Middleton in the above photo?!

A little B & E is a great way to break up a portrait sesh!

So mama fell in love with a new lighting system recently and had to blog a few of these innovative headshots!

While I photograph a ton of traditional headshots, it’s always a great time to branch out!

Your girl also adores a black backdrop so hard!

The above photo of my girl Lindsey is probably one of my favorite portraits ever!

Her “focus” tattoo, the strong red lip, green eyes, the flattering light…….I love it!

Here’s mi amiga Caroline with her great smile and rocking my faux diamond earrings.

I own an absolute ton of oversized earrings and these are some of my favorite to use in boudoir or headshot portraits!

This witchy woman is Nathalia and I am over the moon in love with her Little Mermaid chest tattoo!

Natalia’s gorgeous makeup was the work of Lauren from Hint of Shimmer!

These photographs were taken using a very portable large black backdrop and I love the ability to create a mood anywhere!

Annabeth | Austin Branding Head Shots

Ever sit around and wonder to yourself, “huh, I wonder what Blake Lively and Liz Phair’s love child would look like…..”?

Probably not since they are both ladies, famous in different eras and you are a very busy person with many very important things to do.

However, I do think that perhaps Annabeth would be the result of said, torrid love affair!

Annabeth teaches, jams and looks fetching in coral hues at the Red Leaf School of Music which is a funky place down South First!

This creative portrait session took place on one of the first few sunny days here in Austin and I love the results we created together!

Annabeth is also involved in circling which is something I don’t know much about yet but hoping to learn more!

Thank you so much for trusting me for these images, Annabeth!

See you again soon!
