A fun summer photo session with Sidney, St. Andrews Class of 2020. {Austin's Premier Teen and Tween Portrait Photographer}

We met Sidney last year when she played on my daughter's Advanced Performance volleyball team.  She is a great outside hitter with a killer vertical and we loved watching her kill the ball.  But what really stands out to me about Sidney, is how very charming she is.  It's like you can see through her eyes right into her soul.  She is guileless.  So it was fun to juxtapose her sweetness with a vintage Indian Chief motorcycle.  I just love what she was able to do with those shots while still keeping every single one very classy and appropriate for her age (she's 14, y'all).  And of course, when I think of an all-American sweetheart and summertime, I think of snow cones and ice cream so we had to cool off at the Ice Box in Kyle.  We covered a lot of ground on this blistering July day, and had a ton of fun in the making of these images.

A night to remember, the 8th grade dance {Austin's Teen and Tween Portrait Photography}

Our 8th graders loved getting dressed up for their 8th grade dance.  And I loved taking their picture. What a sweet group of friends.  I love these girls!  Thank you Shawn for doing Payton’s hair & makeup, and for making her feel special! The girls had a fantastic time at their first major dance. And man, they sure did look grown up and gorgeous! I’m such a lucky mom. And I loved lending my hand as their photographer too.

Bluebonnets | {A teen mini session}

This week I took my oldest girl out for a few photos in the beautiful bluebonnets.  I love this season!  My girls are growing up way too fast. This was a fun time on a somewhat cloudy day without much sunshine and I didn’t have my reflector with me. But her sweet light shines bright in any situation.
