Blooming in Austin!! {Austin Maternity Photographer}

I have had the pleasure of photographing this family several times, and I was SO excited when she choose me to capture her in this beautiful time!!!!  We had our session planned out, and then that morning I drove by these AMAZING trees, I knew right away our session was going to change a bit!!!   I am not sure what kind of trees these are, but I have found it is so rare to have several blooming trees all together in Austin.  I KNOW that these are my favorite maternity images ever!!!  MOMMA was so easy and willing to do whatever:)  I brought this dress, from Roses and Ruffles and I can’t tell you how much I love them.  I know a lot of women are tentative about shooting maternity pictures.  I really wish everyone did them, because each momma should have the chance to feel beautiful, because they are!!!!!  My goal for maternity pictures is to create something that 20 years from now, each momma can show they child they are carrying the images and the child is proud to know that was them inside.  I want them to be timeless and beautiful, and I hope we did that for this momma!!!!

The Everyday Photographer Workshop!! {Family Photography Workshop}

At last I am ready to announce that I am offering limited mentoring spots in 2014!!!  So before I was a photographer I was a teacher and a coach.  When I had my twins I decided that I wanted to spend more time with them, so I quit teaching and became a full time mom.  I progressed into being a photographer, all the while coaching club volleyball.  So teaching is in right up my ally:)  I am so excited to get back into teaching and essentially coaching other photographers!!!  So.. here is the information about the workshops.  Please note that there will only be 1-2  per month for a mentoring opportunities.  There will also be ongoing help after the mentoring session takes place, so it is not over the day we finish shooting.  Please email me at abbygphotography@gmail.com for more information regarding a workshop type and dates that are available.

This workshop is for families and children, there is no newborns during this workshop.  A non refundable deposit will be required at time of booking and the rest is due 30 days prior to the mentoring.  Only photographers located 100 miles or further away are eligible for a mentoring spot.

Editing Examples:  I want to teach people how to shoot as close to the picture that they want so it is just a quick edit and it simply enhances the shot but doesn’t change it completely!!

But everyone makes mistakes, here I messed up my white balance, but in most cases you can fix it:)  So here I forgot to change my white balance between locations, but I LOVED this shot!!!  So I just had to fix it!!
