{ it’s a Spring sale } Austin Photoshoots in May

If you haven’t checked out my site, check it out at www.MauiBeachPhotographer.com

Because I am soooooo excited, I figured a little Springtime Austin Sale was in order. If you haven’t reserved your Austin photo session yet, now is the time!

happy new year! happy new decade! | Austin Family Photographer

As I sit and ponder all the wonderful things that are ahead in 2010, I’ve realized that not only are we saying goodbye to 2009, but to an entire decade.

This decade so many things happened in my life… I got married in 2000, started my business in 2002, had my first child in 2006 (and another in 2008!), moved to another state… so many things. This has been an amazing decade for me and my expanding family.

As we begin 2010, I have a few announcements and updates (yes more! haha) I am becoming an LLC! I am waiting for the final Texas paperwork to go through. I hope in the next few days it will be finalized. Just as a reminder, this means that any and all payments will need to be made out to Photography by Mariah Milan, LLC instead of Mariah Milan.

The next announcement is that I have (sadly) decided that I’ll need February off. I am just getting so huge and uncomfortable in my last trimester that I won’t be taking on any further work in February. If you’ve already booked a February session – not to worry! – you are still on the calendar and everything is a go unless I go into labor early.

And the final update is a new Mini Session program! I’ve had requests so here it is!

The Wednesday Afternoon Mini-Session

Perfect for those who don’t need or want a full session!

Half Hour Shoot (South and Central Austin)

10-15 full resolution images on disc

one 4×6 of each image

$500 (plus tax)

*not available for newborn or studio maternity sessions

And here’s a look at a couple of my favorite family portraits from this past season… I didn’t want to post these earlier and spoil any Christmas cards!!

Happy New Year to you and yours! May you all be blessed many times over!



Vintage Wedding Anyone? | Austin Wedding Photographer

I’ve been a wedding photographer for around 7 years now… always the feel people are going for is contemporary. What is new is great. And this is true… BUT… I have been studying old family photos recently. Old wedding photographs draw me in every time. I love old photos.

After a wedding hiatus I’m now offering my wedding photography services again. I’m happily doing Austin Wedding Photography, Wimberley Wedding Photography, and Maui Wedding photography.




I think Vintage Style wedding photography is magical. The texture… the emotion… I just love it.
