Dora asked me to do a few quick headshots for her since she was updating her website. I was more than happy to help. These kind of headshots are perfect for model comp cards, LinkedIn, professional websites, and acting.

Mariel was great to collaborate with for this shoot. A little sexy, a little 'out there' - it was perfect for her! Mariel did her own styling and (amazing) make-up. Click to enlarge.
TJ Wolfe is an author, political activist, member of the Human Rights Campaign and Equality Texas. She recently published Unwanted Heart and wanted some new headshots. TJ will tell you she's not good at taking photos, but the images below lead me to disagree. She has the warmest smile and a personality that shows through the images. It was truly a pleasure working with TJ - and a special shout out to Red Horn for letting us shoot in their space. Click to enlarge.
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.
