After a wonderful spring of photographing so many cute families, preggo ladies, and couples, I thought I’d give another photography update and touch on my “Small Baby + Small Business” triumphs/struggles! Being a stay at home mom = not easy. Being a work at home mom = definitely not easy! However, both are SO very rewarding and I thank my lucky stars every day that I can do this! In my last post, I mentioned how I was really getting into a wonderful rhythm with shooting and editing. And thank goodness for that! However, a large part of my job is spent emailing. I’m constantly responding to inquiries, discussing location ideas or clothing options, or verifying print orders with clients. And I think it is insane how long it takes me! Any other photographers/business owners/bloggers out there feel me on this?? I’m not sure why I haven’t streamlined this process yet, but it’s officially my new goal! Hopefully with the next update I’ll have news to share on that! Here are a few shots from some of my recent sessions!
Jamie & Keith’s engagement session in Gruene, TX was so much fun. Jamie is a photographer as well, so I was excited and nervous to take their pics!!
No, your eyes do not deceive you! Julia is REALLY holding her fiancee, Tyler, upside down hanging from a ribbon! Oy! This engagement session was insane in the membrane (in a good way)! You’ve got to check out some of the other shots we got as well! And we did all of this in about 30-40 minutes! We actually just met up the other day to snag a few more shots outside so you’ll see these two again! :)
Oh, Caleb. I love these senior portraits. By the end of the session he turned all J.Crew model on me and it rocked my world. Check out the shots on the railroad tracks!
I love it when clients will walk into random woods with me and completely trust that I know what I’m doing! This gorgeous couple was so easy to photograph! PS – all engagement sessions should include an ampersand (see blog post. also, see my own engagement photos!). Ashley, a girl after my own heart :)
…I just realized I’ve blogged so many sessions since the last update! I can’t post them all here, but here are a few more!
This is one of my bff’s, Christyn, who is having a baby! Like, any day now! Woohoo! I love this picture, I love these two, and I know I will love their little munchkin. Bring on the babies! :)
Isn’t this little guy the cutest? I don’t know what it was about this particular day but the light was so perfect for this sweet family session.
Absolutely loved this sweet maternity session. If you click over, you will probably recognize this family! Their Christmas photo that I took a couple years ago now made it into this magazine article! :)
Seriously, the hardest part of my job is picking favorites for blog posts. I’m not even kidding. I know it sounds silly, but I usually have so many favorites and not enough time to post all of them! It’s a horrible problem to have! ;)
I’ll catch up with a few more favorites in the next installment of “Small Baby + Small Business”!
