Mr & Mrs Jones - Austin Wedding

I have been dying to get this on the blog! A few weeks ago I traveled to Austin for Darla and Ricky's wedding. It was at this beautiful venue called Chapel Dulcinea, it is out in the Hill Country and just breathtaking! Darla had to of been the most laid back Bride I have ever seen! She was so chill and just took her time enjoying her day - she was so fun and not to mention GORGEOUS! There are just certain people that are naturally beautiful both inside and out and she is one of those people. I mean seriously....

Thank God the weather was nice and it wasn't too hot yet. It was perfect ;)

How funny is this family photo (don't worry I took a normal one too) but I love the fun one - it shows their personality - plus i love that the daughter on the right is basically making the same face as her mom. 

Let me tell you just how important it is to take a few minutes after the ceremony while the guests leave for the reception to have a few minutes with just you and your photographer. It is insanely important people! I can not stress that enough, not only does it give you a few minutes to take a break with you and your new husband but it also gives me a chance to document this amazingly, special day and the opportunity to capture your crazy, head over heels, love! Trust me when you are 60 you are not going to care about tons of different pictures of you and your wedding attendants, but you will cherish the ones of you and the man you fell in love with (you're children will cherish them as well!) Ok so enough of that soap box - really I should just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Oh good grief - that last photo is on FIRE!

It was so sweet to get to spend a few minutes with Darla and Ricky alone at the Chapel - everyone had already left for the reception and it was just so sweet and intimate.
Speaking of cool are they? They had their reception at Austins very own Nutty Brown Cafe. This place was fun and had some great areas for pics - it was another perfect Texas wedding!

Darla & Ricky - thank you thank you thank you for allowing me to be there on your special day! You make a beautiful couple and seem to fit perfectly. I wish you and your family a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness!

PS - don't be strangers!

Newborn Session: Cameron

Last week I had the privilege of meeting adorable little Cameron, he was about 7 weeks old for his pictures and was just so sweet. Even though we didn't get any sleepy pictures we still got some great ones! He was wide eyed and laid back...

I am taking captions for this pic - I would be scared to know what he wanted to tell me if he could talk! ha! I'm sure it was something along the lines of "this is ridiculous"... you're right Cam - you are ridiculously CUTE!
Speaking of cute - meet Cameron's sister, Kaitlyn, who is 90 miles per hour all the time! She was so much fun - I seriously loved hearing all she had to say and of course, all she wanted to do was take "silly face" photos - which are the best ;)

I love feet pictures - this one just screams LOVE to me...
Ok so I really REALLY love this last pic - it stopped me in my tracks actually - I love how Cameron is holding on to his dads hand so tightly, and at the same time his dad has such a firm, yet gentle, grip on his sons hand. Just made me do some thinking...and some smiling ;)

This will not be your typical "pumpkin patch" fall session. There will be numerous picture areas set up in the wooded area - think very whimsical/enchanted garden type of feeling. There will be some basic areas such as an antique chair for your child to sit on with lots of leaves and pumpkins scattered around. There will also be places like a tent made from a quilt with an antique bicycle, or a perfect little reading nook complete with your favorite childhood story books, as well several other options. Your child will get to explore all the different areas, so your pictures will include several different scenes. This will be great fun and perfect options for Christmas cards or even Christmas gifts ;)

Contact me to book!

Kaylyn Olivia Capehart

Meet sweet baby Kaylyn - you may remember her parents baby bump shoot several posts back :)

Can you believe she was only six days old during her shoot?!? She has so much hair and was SO alert! I honestly didn't know if I would be able to get many squishy, sleepy baby pictures out of her - but we managed ;) She has such a sweet demeanor, I seriously cant wait to see what she is like next year at this time!

Congrats Dave and Johnna - you have a precious little angel :) Oh and for the record my favs are #'s 2 3 6 and 7!
