Cold


I didn't get much rest last week and now I have a bit of a cold. This What the Duck really made me smile.

Granny


Very sad news. My grandmother passed away yesterday. She had been very sick for a couple of weeks and it is a blessing that she is no longer in pain. I will miss her terribly. In the last year we got to talk on the phone almost every day. We had lots of inside jokes and laughed often. She loved sports, doing crosswords and spending time with her overweight Pomeranian, Bella, and parrot, Bird. I am endlessly thankful that she was able to attend my wedding and my life will never quite be the same again. Goodbye Granny. We love you.

Snap Jundgments

There was a great piece about photojournalism on NPR this morning. Here is the description.

What are the rules that govern journalistic portrait photography? Wide-angle lenses, nonstandard lighting, shooting from below – they’re all fair game and frequently employed by photogs working for major publications. But what obligation is there to the subject? Bob searches for answers.

And a link to the story.

Holiday Cards!


t










This was a fun shoot! If only all of the kids I photograph were this well behaved. :) Also want to give props to the nanny, Andrea, who was a HUGE help in getting the kids to smile. She even wore a Micky Mouse hat and did a little dance for us.

Erin and Seth

















Erin and Seth got married a few weeks ago in Driftwood! I could not have asked for a more easy going and relaxed couple. The BBQ was excellent. The cake was yummy. The bouquet was AMAZING! Great wedding. Thanks you two!

I'm married!


It is official. We are married! I can safely say it was the best day of my life. I'll post more when we return from our honeymoon. Some of the photos are already on David Hill's blog.

Allie + Rusty






Must say this was one of those weddings that made me smile and think about how much I love my job. I don't have time to post more than a few, but here goes. I'll put up more later.

Pink Avocado











Yesterday I had the great pleasure of photographing the grand opening event for the Palm Door, a new event venue in downtown Austin. The in house caterer, Pink Avocado, did the catering. Everything was very yummy!!! Good news because they will be catering my wedding in just a few short weeks. :)

ACL






I'm photographing ACL for Rolling Stone and having the time of my life! Festivals usually get me down because of the excessive walking, heat and rude security guards, but this festival has been going surprisingly well. I can't share any images yet, but my wonderful wedding photographer (and friend) David Hill sent me these today. I never realized just how large my cameras look until I see them in a photo or have someone else pointing one at me. :)
