Layla’s bat mitzvah was a terrific party. Her friends and family gathered for her reception downtown at the AT&T Executive Center for a fun-packed night. Disch Events did their usual job of gorgeous florals and uplighting, including a personalized vintage car gobo above the dj booth. So cool! Guests had fun posing by a vintage car in front of the hotel before coming upstairs. The Cupcake Bar had a yummy doughnut bar AND candy bar (you can never have too much sugar) and a popcorn bar and drink stand awaited guests on the other side of the ballroom. Premiere Events provided beautiful rentals and furniture for the henna station and Hype Rhythm kept the kids busy with dance contests, singing contests, races and other games. Layla was honored with a slideshow of her parents’ favorite memories, the traditional hora as well as family blessing. The AT&T Center provided catering. Many thanks to Jessica Frey for helping me on this one!

Carly and Shane met me for what turned out to be a really pleasant day in late December for their engagement session. It was a little chilly, but Carly was game! She is the cutest thing ever! Put a guitar in her hands and she’s ready to be a country music star! Gruene is a sweet little spot in south Texas for down-home, Texas-style portraits. Cow fields, hay bales, a darling little white chapel and you’ve got a recipe for romance. The light couldn’t have been better for some truly stunning portraits at the end of our session. I love a good silhouette! I’m excited for their wedding later in 2017 at Branded T Ranch.

Oh. My. Gosh. Jenna was soooo beautiful for her bridal session! Now that her New Year’s Eve wedding has passed I can share some of my favorites! We met in December for The Fastest Bridal Session Ever; her wedding was just THREE WEEKS away, Christmas was upon us, and our venue changed three days before! Whew! Props to Jenna and her mom for being the coolest, laid-back pair ever. Carrington Crossing proved to be an absolutely perfect place for her session. Soft, crumbly walls, perfect window lighting–yes, please!

I was in love with her Rebecca Schoneveld gown and Sara Gabriel circlet she purchased from Unbridaled in downtown Austin. I’ve known Jenna since she was in high school: I did her senior portraits for graduation and, as she was in theatre with MY daughter (eek!!) I was excited to bring out her artistic personality for these portraits. Jenna loves the camera, and de camera loves her! I literally said, “oh let’s do Girl With a Pearl Earring,” and she nailed it! Stay tuned and check back for Jenna and Andrew’s wedding! Happy New Year everyone!

Hi all! I was fortunate to be part of the most uh-MA-zing team for ILEA’s October monthly meeting! Tracy Collins (Events by Tracy Collins) pulled off a technicolor dream; her inspiration was Lady Gaga as the meeting focused on loyalty lessons by Lady Gaga. Enjoy the crazy beautiful eye candy. Here’s your vendor list to know who can make this happen!
