These photographs perfectly capture the magic of childhood to me and showcase the lightheartedness of being a kid in a family that loves you so well.

One thing has remained the same— she is her own beautiful force of nature and I’m pretty sure she knows it. This is the beauty that ensued.

My goal with family sessions has been to let the session unfold with less resistance and more openness from all of us present. Let’s be honest, the kid(s) tend to run the show at these things and have their own ideas of how the session should go. Sometimes our initial ideas of what we were wanting or hoping for don’t always take shape in the same way, but that can allow for the session to feel uniquely honest to the family, which is a rather beautiful thing.

When planning your session, I always recommend considering when your kids are their happiest and brightest selves. For this little girl, it’s definitely mornings. She wakes up bright-eyed and bubbly so we always schedule her sessions for sunrise and it never disappoints.

You know me, I think all women deserve to feel better, to feel beautiful, and to be celebrated, especially a woman who supports others. When planning this Austin maternity session, I encouraged Nazley to embrace her natural boho-style and beauty. We both felt like the Sekrit Theater was the perfect location to do it.

Sweet Maya contacted me after reading my about page and realizing her and her husband, Jeffrey, were the same as us in so many ways. (I love when that happens!) She is pregnant with their first baby, a girl, and wanted to plan an Austin maternity session that was artistic and nature-inspired.

Meet the lovely Miller Family, a party of 3! We recently joined this sweet family for an Austin Sunset Family Session at Walnut Creek. Tiffany and Ryan said they wanted photos of their family to capture where they are now in their lives and celebrate their baby girl being a year old. Like it does with all new parents, time had slipped away more quickly than expected and they didn’t want to miss any more chances to document their family as they are now.  (<—That last part is so important, folks. DOCUMENT. DOCUMENT. DOCUMENT. Then Document some more.)

We recently met up with the Andersons near their favorite family park for this Austin family session to celebrate their new family of FOUR! Sarah and Wade just had their sweet baby girl this spring and her big brother is delighted to have someone to help look after. It’s so endearing to watch how he naturally dotes on his sister like you would hope a big brother would.

During one part of the session, when I asked D if he would give his mom a kiss– he leaned in with all the passion and enthusiasm of a 4-year-old boy– kissing her right on the lips (instead of the cheek as I intended)! I think it’s pretty clear that he learned how to love his mom so fearlessly from watching his father do the same.

Countless times, Stella and I have talked about womanhood and the struggles that come with it, what we would change, what we would tell our younger selves if we could, and what we would want for our own little girl should we ever have one.
