Jenna and Seth – Expecting – Austin Maternity Photographer

A handful of years ago, I photographed Jenna and Seth’s engagement photos and then their wedding. Naturally, I was floored when Jenna contacted me again. It is a blessing to experience love like theirs. It’s so obvious how much they love each other. That I was chosen to document their journey into parenthood is truly humbling. Thank you, thoughtful, giving, caring and happy people! I am so excited to meet baby Ella! What a lucky kid to have parents so loving and kind as you!

The journey begins…

Breathe – Austin Family Photographer, Austin, TX

Sometimes, we try so hard to get the perfect family picture, the group photo where everyone is looking and smiling at the same time. Every time a camera is pointed in our facial direction, we can’t help but smile and tell those around us to do the same. Frankly, unless you’re all trained models, it’s not going to happen. I might be giving away my secret here, but I can’t help it. I want you to know…I search for the moments in between the trying. The moments when you take a breath and regroup. For, that is the moment you relax and forget about me, the camera, you enjoy your baby and the fresh breeze. For me, when I get moments like this in my camera, I feel like the most successful photographer in the world.

Happy Mother’s Day!
