Sherry and Perry have been in a long distance relationship, while Sherry lives in Germany, Perry is in Austin, Texas.This elopement wedding was even more special for the very fact that this meant these two love birds will be moving to the same country in 3 months Time. Sherry has already send out her resignation letter to move to Austin to join Perry and start a new life together.
For the wedding portrait sessions, I offer a makeup touch up before the shoot to make sure the skin and colors are flawless on the photos. We shot this session in Mckinney Falls State Park at a sunrise session as the couple had their luggage packed in their backseat of their car ready to fly to Miami after the shoot for their honeymoon. Could it get any more romantic?
Victoria and her six month old baby Noah reached out to me to take their Christmas card photo, we showed up for a sunrise session at Circle C park, the weather was around 40 degrees and despite it being cold Noah never cried or showed any discomfort which was such a relief. Victoria has recently moved to Austin from Los Angeles California and this is her first winter in Austin. She is a working single mom at the same time she is a student working on her career, She is definitely a perfect role model for handling a young baby, a job and studying all at the same time by herself. It is only a matter of time for Noah to grow up and for Victoria to have her career path set in front of her, I hope these photos are a beautiful reminder for them that they made it through this phase of their lives together.
This past weekend, I had the privilege to the makeup for this beautiful bride and her bridal party at Camino Real Ranch (18829 Camino Real, Dale, Texas 78616) Kate from Last Satellite Salon did the fantastic job of the hairstyling for these ladies.
I did the makeup for this photoshoot that Josh set up, it has been a while that I did the makeup for someone else's photoshoot so it was refreshing experience.
This was the most emotional portrait session I have ever taken, A week before, the owners of Copper found out he was diagnosed with cancer and they asked to schedule this portrait session before they had to say goodbye to him. They were in the middle of moving and we drove to Georgetown to their family house to take these portrait session. Copper was the kindest sweetest dog, despite he was blind and probably in a lot of pain he cooperated amazingly this shoot and listened to all of my cues. I cannot imagine how much his family is missing him right now, I can only hope these photos can bring some sort of memory of Copper's last days to help heal their hearts.
In spring time I had the privilege to work on a branding collaboration with the local brand Latika. Beautiful and talented Vallen agreed to help me out with this project, where we spent the day between the downtown Austin and lushes green fields in the Circle C park. I hope you enjoy this session as much as I did creating it.

I tagged along with my husband that had set up this shoot with wonderful Chie. I had recently purchased my Canon EOS R and I wanted to test out the video on it. I shot the photos on my second body which they tuned out so beautiful and the video on EOS R. However, unfortunately I didn't realize the camera didn't have internal stabilizer so there is a visible shake hand hold and I am forever sad at the video result.
