ELLIS KATE | NEWBORN | DENVER, CO

Ellis Kate is the beautiful daughter of my beautiful cousin Katelyn and her awesome hubby Aaron. I was honored to have them ask that I come up and visit the new little munchkin and take some photos while I was there. We had what I would consider the perfect afternoon/evening hanging out at their fabulous home playing with dogs (Ollie and Thatcher) and new baby while listening to records. Yup, that right. It was totally perfect.

DULAK FAMILY | FAMILY PORTRAITS | AUSTIN, TEXAS

Early early morning sessions always turn out so great...maybe it doesn't feel that way when the alarm goes off before dawn, but there's a weird sense of accomplishment when you beat the sun to McKinney Falls Park.  We had a lovely time exploring, running around and playing a game that involved throwing rocks into the water that little June made up as we went along. Biggest splash wins. 

Aren't they the cutest trio?

RILEY | SENIOR PORTRAITS | BOERNE, TX

Riley is so many things. She is gorgeous. She is SO smart. She is the hardest working person I know. She is hilarious. She is one of the top junior downhill skiers in the nation. She is my niece.  Also, she is not a senior yet, but since she's a teenager going on 25, I thought the category was appropriate. I could brag about her for hours. She and her mom (my sister Kim) came to Texas for a visit last summer and while sitting around on the back porch the light started doing that special thing it does in the late afternoon - so I grabbed her and my camera and went on an impromptu photo adventure. I was so sad when the sun went down because we could have taken 1 million photographs for a thousand hours. Love you RileyRoo.
