Downtown Round Rock Lifestyle Portraits

I worked with author TJ Wolfe to craft lifestyle portraits featuring her impeccable sense of style, her love of writing, and the perfect way to relax on a sunny day. Shot in downtown Round Rock.

Like these lifestyle portraits? Slice of life sessions can feature you, your family, your spouse, your partner, or your pet - or just include everyone! It's a perfect way to preserve memories that doesn't feel forced or cliche.

Year in Review: Best of 2014

2014 was my first full year in Austin. I have had a blast shooting my way around central Texas. A big thank you to all of my clients this past year - you guys are the reason why I do what I do. Here's a round up of some of my favorite shots, in no particular order, from the last 12 months. Click to enlarge.

ATX: Around Town (New Lens Edition)

Over the last 10 days I rented a a new lens to try out - the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM lens. I shot with it every chance I got - and fell in love. Here's some of the results:

Sasha, the bride-to-be from this engagement shoot, agreed to be my first test subject. We went to the Hope Outdoor Gallery, a super cool repurposed art installation on Baylor Street- it's basically a wall of graffiti. The colors and shapes got turned into a dreamy bokeh to serve as a backdrop for our portrait session.

I also was able to shoot part of the Austin Fashion Week event. There are so many talented independent designers! Of course, my main interest was the wedding gowns.

After being bribed with bubble tea, Anjanee, one of my friends, volunteered to model for me for a quick mini shoot to work with some interesting lighting situations. She has such a gorgeous smile!

In the last couple days of my rental, I used the lens in day-to-day photography - miscellaneous shots of Austin, some wildlife, and a walk by Lady Bird Lake. All in all, I was really happy with this lens and will likely be purchasing it in the future.
