Our Family Session | Bethany Dawn Photography

We just got back from a quick trip to Albuquerque, NM to see my family and to go to the Balloon Fiesta! While we were there, we met our awesome photographer friend, Bethany Dawn for a holiday family photo session! She completely blew me away with the photos she was able to capture of my family! She rocks!!! My boys suffer from a bad case of PCS (photographer’s child syndrome) and they are also going through the whole throw-yourself-on-the-ground tantrum phase of life! Not to mention they are lightning fast and well, it was a workout but look at what she captured…. (Thank you so much Bethany!!!!) A big shout out to my sister Ashley who came along for the photo session and got some great smiles out of the boys too! Love ya sis!!!

PS. Hunter is turning 3 and Hayden is 18 months old in these photos!:)

Baby Love | Austin Newborn Photographer

I love newborns. Especially this one. So sleepy and bendy and beautiful – a newborn photographer’s dream! Can I say beautiful about a newborn baby boy?:)

He has two handsome older brothers who are so super cute! I thought I had little boys pretty well figured out and could talk the lingo (since I have 2 little boys of my own!) but I soon realized that I have a lot to learn about Bakugan and Star Wars and all the things they are into once they outgrow Elmo, Dinosaurs and Diego…;)(or have an older brother to show them what’s really cool!)

Despite the slightly cooler weather on this day, I was able to capture these sweet outdoor portraits. Love those lips!! Enjoy your sneak peek, “D” family!!

Expecting | Austin Maternity Photographer

I met this cute family at Mayfield park for their mini maternity session last week. I love the excitement and anticipation that pregnancy brings.

Hookem! | Austin Newborn Photographer

First off, I must apologize to this gorgeous family for taking so long to get their sneak peeks up! Sooooo sorry! I’ll include a couple extra sneak peeks for being so patient! Isn’t this family gorgeous??

Mom is especially beautiful and sweet miss “C” looks so much like her mommy…

Before you start thinking I’m on a b&w kick, here is a color one for you.:)

Okay, I am on a b&w kick tonight! (it’s 1:44am!)

Miss “C” has an older 3.5 year old brother who is seriously the *biggest* UT fan I’ve ever met! (He has this rad UT guys playset (think army men but in football outfits) complete with a football stadium playmat with real goal posts. During the session, big brother was eating his lunch and watching UT football game reruns (1993) on their kitchen TV! (Now you believe me he’s a hardcore fan?) Well… it may run in their genes – look what baby sister did all on her own during the session… Hookem!

It’s the details that I love so much! Such a sweet beautiful baby girl. One last sneak for her proud parents. Enjoy!!

Guess what? | Austin Childrens Photographer

I have a few announcements to make! First, I am booked for the rest of 2009!!! Thank you to all my wonderful clients who have sessions scheduled in the coming weeks/months – I am so excited to meet each one of you for your Ella Bella Photography sessions! If you are wishing you could get in on the fun, I am opening up a waiting list in case we have any session slots become available. If you want to get on my wait list for 2009, please send me your name, phone number, email address, # of children you have and your city (Austin or San Antonio).

Second announcement! Hayden, my almost-18-month-old is *finally* walking!! He was a laaate crawler (started crawling after his 1st birthday) and he spent the last 6 months building up the strength to start walking! I’m so excited for my little man – mommy is so proud!! I just might celebrate this milestone by going out to get him a pair of boots this week!

One last share of them together – I had to act crazy silly to get them both laughing which interfered with my focusing but I love it just the same.:)

Adorable | Austin Newborn Photographer

I can’t think of another title for this sneak peak other than “adorable!” This sweet 9 day old baby boy is so super adorable and has the cuuuutest newborn cry I’ve ever heard.:)He stayed awake for the beginning and the end of his newborn session, but once he was asleep, he was a dream to work with! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek, “C” family – ya’ll are gorgeous!!
