So Amazing | Austin Family Photographer

Susan gets the honor of traveling the farthest for her session. 🙂

I met Susan and Scott 5 years ago when they came to Maui for their 10 year anniversary. We had a beautiful session on the beach…

Over the years we’ve exchanged Christmas cards, read each others’ blogs, and just kept in touch forming more of a friendship. When she let me know that her husband had to come to Austin on a business trip, we were excited at the possibility of a photo shoot. It got even more exciting when it became a reality and we counted the days until her arrival.

The day before the shoot I was a wreck. It was pouring rain and everything was muddy. I kept telling myself that the weather would pass. Susan and Scott flew in from Iowa the following morning and we met at my parents amazing property in South Austin. It was extremely humid and muddy, but we were thankful that it wasn’t raining!

We chatted about our kids – Max is just over two months older than Cruz – our last time on Maui, and thoughts of plans for a future Maui trip where we can get our entire families together. It was absolutely amazing to reconnect with Susan in person and I am incredibly honored that she would fly over 900 miles for a photo shoot with me. There is no higher compliment than that!

Max is an absolute doll baby. He charmed me and he charmed the lens. He knew how to work a session! I can’t fit everything in the sneak peek, but I just couldn’t resist showing everything in a slide show.
