This summer, I spent a day in Austin, Texas
with the Budde (pronounced Buddy!) family!
I met Paige back in 2011-12 at a photography workshop!!
On this specific day, everything C L I C K E D
and F L O W E D in the best way possible.
I don’t know why or how, but when it happens,
its M A G I C
and I am so proud of the work I create!!!
Thank goodness Meng loves to pose and model
and was game for alllll of my ideas! ahh!!
Her style was so so so inspiring to me!!!! Take a look!
The most smiley, laid-back baby award… goes to Tatum!!
That’s why this session was so amazing: unlimited smiles and flirty ‘lil looks!!!!
Her mom being a photographer and understanding photogenic outfits helped too: )
Also, let it be known: the 5-11 month-ish age range is so freakin great
because babies are expressive but DONT MOVE YET. They just SIT THERE.
AND, they like being held! A toddler? NOPE.
I could cry because its so much easier than a 2 year old hahaha
The first photo shoot in our brand new guest suite / photo studio!!!!!!!!!
This place has THE. BEST. LIGHT. EVER.
Here is the listing on Airbnb to rent the space for photo/video shoots!
During this session, I caught myself shooting super close up because they’re sooo beautiful,
instead of wider to show off the photo studio… oops. :)
this is the truth of toddler sessions: always running away… and playing with keys:
