This photoshoot took place at the Long Center for Performing Arts in Austin, Texas back in March of 2010. We met through a mutual friend, Laura Caldron, who was also a photography enthusiast and classmate at The University of Texas at Austin.
Tawny and I met before the shoot on campus to plan the shoot outfit. I found out that her and dresses didn’t really mix much, she told me she was all about metal band t-shirts and jeans, which is totally badass because of her relationship to a certain metal guitarist but I challenged her to step out of her comfort zone and see if she can wear a spring style dress.
Although in 2010 I was an okay photographer but I was still learning. I made the mistake to setup the photo shoot 3pm. I remember dealing with a hot ass sun and sketchy cloud coverage and my strobes were no help because of how windy it was. I had to think on my feet and so I decided to go to the next resource, my handy dandy reflector disk. The good thing was I had my best friend Israel assisting me that day and his personality really helped us get this shoot of the ground after our setbacks.
Tawny was a lot of fun to work with. She was very talkative and actually knew how to pose. I might look for my RAW files from this shoot to take another look at them in a editing software. Special thanks to Tawny Hammett, Israel Cavazos, and Laura Caldron for making this happen.

When I lived in Austin, Texas while attending the University of Texas at Austin I would take walks and search for light. I loved exposing to the available light really capturing true contrast in real life. None of these photos are edited, they are JPEGs straight from my classic Canon 5D. I recently found these photos while backing up file online and I thought it would nice to share them! Enjoy!

Traditionally my photography leans toward portraiture and photographing people. I’ve noticed that the majority of photographers start off their photography careers photographing nature and I don’t blame them because photographing people is very intimidating, especially as a beginner.
There was a time when I would photograph butterflies on my college campus in between classes but that was as far as my nature photography would go when I was first starting my photography career.
I find it kind of hard to photograph nature and I have learned it’s because I don’t have any patience and because nature doesn’t respond to you. Recently I have had a want to shoot more nature but I just don’t feel like I have the time to do so. Hopefully that can change soon. In the mean time here are some of older “nature” photography I captured when I was living in Austin, Texas attending the University of Texas at Austin.
Austin has beautiful sceneries in every corner so a lot of my “nature” photography was done when I would need to walk / commute somewhere. The majority was also taken on the UT campus because it’s such a beautiful mix of landscape, nature and architecture.
Hopefully I will be sharing more of my nature photography after this post. I feel excited to go out there and shoot, hopefully I find the patience and make the time. Thanks for reading!

Photographed this beautiful model in Austin, Texas at this gem of a spot also known as Waller Creek. While studying photography in at The University of Texas at Austin, I would actively seek to build my portfolio and this photo shoot was definitely one of my best while I lived there. Michelle was such a great sport willing to go down into a creek in heels and pose on dangerous rock beds feet from water. Check out my favorite shots from this photoshoot.

A few weekends back while in Austin, Texas my clients and I setup an engagement photo shoot on a day that was suppose be be pouring rain but honestly all that was pouring that day was these bomb a– photos!
I really love how this little engagement-family photo session turned out. A good looking couple with their good looking son in a good looking city only results in some good look portraits! We chose to take the photos at Lady Bird Lake Park because a few months back I had taken Roslyn’s maternity photos there, so it was a special location. These are some of my favorite shots from this session. Enjoy!

A few weekends ago we traveled up to Austin, Texas for two things; music and photography! We attended ACL for a day and the next day (Sunday) we filled the whole day with photo shoots and this one was one of them!
Ashley is actually a returning client. When she was 15 her parents hired me to photograph her quince and now I am going to be photographing her wedding. She recently moved from the RGV to Austin, Texas for work and school, so we decided to take her photos in her new city and I don’t regret it one bit because they came out beautiful! The couple chose special and fun places they enjoy about the city such as Mount Bonnell, Downtown Austin SOCO area, Nada Moo, and Jo’s Coffee for their photo shoot. Here are my favorite shots of Ashley and Juan in Austin, Texas.

One of the most beautiful laid back couples you will ever meet! My assistant, Jessica Musick, and I enjoyed photographing these two in Austin, Texas. We decided on two locations. One would be at a local park named Mayfield–Gutsch Estate, which is known for having free-roaming peacocks. The second location was at their home, where the couple said they spend the most time together. Although we are not showing some of those photos because they are more private to the couple it was a special setting.
These shots below are some of our favorite photos from our adventure with them at Mayfield-Gutsch Estate that day. Enjoy!

Dallas has been the most difficult but cutest model I have ever worked with. She just didn’t care for photos. On the other hand; Ms. Jennifer was as Grace-full as she’s named. She flashed her beautiful smile in all her pictures while holding her furry love. Trust me…these photos may look gracious and dandy but that little fur-ball was really hyperactive but Jennifer tamed her well enough to capture some great shots.
I have photographed subjects with their dogs before but never with a cat. There’s always a first for everything right? Jennifer is from San Antonio, Texas and is a respiratory therapist. She and I became aquatinted via Instagram. One day we talked photography and she mentioned she wanted a photo shoot with her cat Dallas. If y0u know me. I am always down for an adventure. So we planned it and this is the result of that conversation.
This photo shoot made me want a cat even more. I have been eyeing Chartreux for a very long time now. Very happy to have met Dallas and Ms. Jennifer Grace. Enjoy these beautiful shots of a cat-lover.

I had the pleasure of photographing Ms. Brittany in San Antonio, Texas at the beginning of October and the results are beautiful. Brittany is a mother to her beautiful daughter Maddy, she’s also a Herbalife Wellness Coach and aspiring model. Brittany has a very unique style and photographs so well. One day I came across one her Instagram posts and I commented if she was willing to take photos with me. Well, she agreed and we have these beautiful images to share with you.
Special thanks to her wonderful mother who assisted me and helped me throughout the photo shoot! Enjoy.

Yesterday I photographed this lovely family in Forth Worth, Texas. What caught my attention while editing these photos was how it took me back to images my parents have of me when I was a one-years-old. Watching Jackson as he played and took in all that was happening around him made me happy, it made extremely happy! The way a one-year-old observes the world is phenomenal. Jackson took us through different emotions during the one hour session at the park. He cried, he laughed, he made angry faces at me, and few times he looked confuse, but most importantly he was extremely alert. Jackson’s curiosity is what made this photo session so natural and fun. I kept telling Linda, his mom, that I absolutely loved that we ‘let him be’ because it’s what made the session flow so well. As you can see in the photos, Jackson dominates the energy and his parents follow, and that is very important when photographing a family with a young child. If the child is happy, then mom and dad are happy. Mom and dad will remember these special moments because they let their kid be a kid.

The University of Texas at Austin Campus is beautiful and has such great locations to take senior / graduation portraits. The textures and scenery makes for amazing backdrops. When I photographed Cassandra we walked around whole 40 acres as much to find all the sweet spots. We made sure to get some of the iconic UT-Austin spots as well. Here are my favorite shots from this UT-Austin Grad Photo Session.
