Black Friday SALES - 2014!

Due to some upcoming fun where I will hopefully be unplugging from my computer most of the time, my Black Friday sales are coming a little early this year.  Maybe I'll start a new thing and call it "Turquoise Tuesday Sales" or something.  You know my love of turquoise... 

Anyhow... here are the sales I am offering this year.  Grab some goodness while the sales last!!

Sale 1: Ends 11.24.14 (Monday)!  {For new bookings only.}
 FAQs: "What is a Mounted Wall Print?"  It is a print that is given a mounting/durable backing that makes it last 100+ years.  It is beautiful, colors are vibrant, and it is ready to be framed (with or without glass).  {A paper print will bend, rip, and buckle, but when mounted, it will not.}  Even with the backing/mounting, it will fit in a regular frame just as a paper print would.  If you have any questions about Sale 1, be sure to email me by 11.24, as the sale ends that day.  

 Sale 2: Ends 11.29.14 (Saturday)!

Superhero Mini-Sessions are COMING! Calling All Superheroes...

I don't know if you're like me, but in my house, I see (and clean up) about 6 different superhero outfits every day.  My sweet little boy is just into ALL things superheroes.  And I loved capturing it for his 5th birthday invitations and party decorations that I made from images we took downtown and in my studio.

Cutest part?  After the session downtown (and 6 outfit / costume changes), he looked up at me with his big blue eyes, and goes, "Mommy - I loved that.  Can we do that again tomorrow?!"  Melted my heart, but I politely said no because that was a LOT of work for this mama.  :)

But - here is YOUR chance to capture your superhero(es) on camera!  Valued at over $600 and offered at just $250, these will fill quickly, so book your spot by emailing me here.  And note: If you have siblings, you get a $50 sibling discount, and twice the goodies, time shooting, and fun!   See bottom of this post for a sample collage.

IN-STUDIO: Saturday, Jan. 10

DOWNTOWN: Sunday, Jan. 11

Here is a sample collage.  (Collage that is included is a digital collage that you may print an 8x10 or 16x20 of.  Valued at $130... Pretty sweet deal!)

Our Canvas Gallery Wrap Displays (Updated): Renaissance Women's Group

What a fun road it has been since I did my first portrait install back in the summer of 2012 at Renaissance Women's Group (Dr. Mills' exam rooms).  Dr. Mills has been my doctor since I first moved to Austin in 2004, and I just adore her.  I have so enjoyed photographing her family since my business started, and so appreciative of her support and the opportunity to display my work there.  In 2013, I expanded into Dr. Montalvo's exam rooms as well there at Renaissance Women's Group.

I think about how far my business has come since 2012, and I just feel my heart overflowing with such a feeling of gratitude.  (And I understand why I might have been so tired since then too.)  ;)

Our displays have come a loooooong way since the first install (click here) in 2012.  I just did a huge overhaul of all displays up there, and installed my new line of AH-mazing Canvas Gallery Wraps.  They are like no other you will find out there... I adore them, and so do my clients!

Here is what the exam rooms look like after my latest install this week.  Let me tell you... installs like this count as two workouts!

My Canvas Displays (Updated): Austin Regional Clinic - South OB

I first installed canvases at Austin Regional Clinic - South OB back when they opened up their new location in January (click here).  The staff there is so awesome, and so much fun.  And so are their families!  I got to work with about 15 of their families last year for mini-sessions.

It was time to update and move some canvases around to OB/GYN locations, so last week I enjoyed installing some updated canvases at Austin Regional Clinic - South OB.  Here are some pics.

My Canvas Displays: Austin Maternal Fetal Medicine

I first heard of Austin Maternal Fetal Medicine (AMFM) when I started working with this adorable family below.  This mama brought a stethoscope to her maternity session because she wanted to do an image where we could create a gorgeous canvas gallery wrap to give to her husband as a surprise in his office (at AMFM).

And over the course of the last year, I have enjoyed doing their newborn portraits, a few family mini-sessions, and most recently, their baby's one year Cake Smash session. What an adorable family they are, and I feel so blessed to get to work with people like this and enjoy their friendship along the way.

A few months ago, Dr. H asked me if I would like to put my Canvas Gallery Wrap displays in their new South Office.  And after months of planning, updating my other 2 OB/GYN office canvas displays, and moving some to this new location, I am (very) excited to say it is complete!

Here is what Austin Maternal Fetal Medicine offices look like now.  And isn't my little assistant cute?  Sweet Miles wanted to help his mama with this project.  I love showing him things like this so he understands a bit more about what his mama does for work.

Charlie's Cake Smash {Austin Baby Photographer}

Charlie was such a doll at his one year Cake Smash session!  {Click here for our Cake Smash Gallery to see other adorable Littles we've photographed.}  He was so sweet, and I just adore the little dimple in his cheek.  What a fun way to cherish celebrating his first birthday milestone!

His mama said he had no interest at his birthday party wearing the  birthday hat, but there was enough going on in my studio with the cake, me behind the camera, etc. that he wore it during the session not once, but twice!

Everyone needs a little milk break now and then... especially during a cake smash.

Want to soak up the cuteness of your own baby's 1st birthday cake smash?  Contact us to schedule your session.  Our calendar is almost packed for the rest of 2014, and we usually schedule 2-3 months in advance.
