Beautiful | Austin Family Photographer

I met the beautiful “M” family last weekend for an outdoor session at the Wizard Academy, my new favorite venue for outdoor photography! It’s located near Driftwood, TX and has lots of beautiful Tuscan style buildings, fountains, lookouts, benches, flowers, waterfalls, ponds – all in a hill country setting. The session proved to be a workout for all of us, keeping up with and 18 month old and a 2 1/2 year old and all that goes along with that!:)Dina, you and your girls are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for spending part of the morning with me. I hope you enjoy your sneak peeks!

I am just loving all the adorable newborns that have come my way lately! Meet baby boy “B” – a little over a week old. He was an absolute angel during his photo session, slept almost the entire time! His handsome big brother just turned 2 years old last weekend too! A busy month in the “Y” household! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!

New Baby Girl | Austin Newborn Photographer

I really enjoyed spending the morning with the “R” family last week and their adorable new baby girl, Miss “E”. I’m in love with her name! (Makes me think of one of my favorite country songs every time I hear it.) This new family of 4 is absolutely gorgeous! They were so much fun to photograph. Congratulations on the birth of your second daughter and I hope you enjoy your sneak peeks!

These 3 are Turning 3! | Austin Child Photographer

My favorite trio is turning 3 years old this weekend and last weekend they made the trip to Austin for a photo session with me! It was a lot of fun chasing them around the park, asking them questions about life as a three year old, and watching the excitement in each of their eyes over selecting their favorite gummy bear treat at the end of the session. Their 3 month old baby brother was super adorable and full of smiles too! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek, “G” family! (We’ll have to stop by your house on our way to Destin this summer so you can meet my boys!)

I asked them to show me how they are on their fingers…:)

Quintuplets {Joneses Quints by Surprise Photographer TLC}

I have been following the Jones quintuplets blog for many months. They are an amazing Christian family with a beautiful 4 year old daughter and now the proud parents of five adorable babies. Four baby girls and one bouncing baby boy. Born on January 16, 2009, they all spent significant time in the NICU and began coming home one by one in March. The 5th baby came home a few days ago on Saturday, April 18th. The quints “newborn” (3 month old) session took place a couple days later. It was a blast to have an opportunity to photograph these adorable babies! I bought along my photographer friend, Kristen Moore, to assist me. She was a fabulous help! Each baby had a little one-on-one time with me for their individual portraits and then we attempted the group portraits at the end. By the end of our 3 hour session, the babies and their big sister were ready to be left alone and all of us grown-ups were ready for a shower and a nap! But the end result made it worth it all… Enjoy your sneak peek, “J” family!

Here they are in birth order (L to R – First born to last):

And one sneak peek of the whole “J” family together!

Squeaky | Austin Duckling Photographer

Meet our new duckling, “Squeaky” – 10 days old. He was near death on day 7, left for dead by his mother, so we took him home to try to feed him baby formula. He was so weak, he couldn’t even lift his head. Within 3 hrs of drinking some formula, he was flying out of the box we had him in. He’ll be going back to the pond this weekend, but not before he had his official “duckling mini session” with Ella Bella Photography! Look at that eye contact too! He’s a natural in front of the camera!

Your pictures are so beautiful. We live near Dallas. If I was closer, I would be calling for a session for my daughter.
