So much to say. So little time to bore you with. Hang with me.
First, I have to say that I had a most wonderful one night getaway to Austin, Texas to scout locations for upcoming shoots. Between spending time with beloved friends, eating dinner outdoors at Zocalo's, cupcakes from Sugar Mama's , shopping on South Congress, and a Leslie sighting I was a little nostalgic for life in central Texas amidst the rivers, the hills, and the culture. Thank you, Katy, for being such an awesome hostess and to the Roeders for coming to my rescue when lost or fear-stricken on the side of the tollway.
Second, I think I'm ready to firm up the Austin dates and locations in July. I'm sooooo, sooooo, soooo excited about the possibilities.
Friday July 16th Taylor, Texas (near Round Rock) 5 pm and 6 pm
Saturday July 17th St. Edwards University (in Austin) 8 am and 9 am
Saturday July 17th South First Street (South Austin) 5 pm and 6 pm
Since this is a trial run for me, I'll be charging the same base price of $250, but I need to at least book 3 shoots in order to pay for the trip. Also, the shoot must be paid in full via paypal by July 2nd. Should I not be able to make the trip because I don't have at least 3 shoots booked I will promptly issue a full refund.
May I ask a favor??? If you have any friends or family in the Austin area that might be interested in a shoot would you mind directing them my way? I'll be most thankful. Throughout the week I'll have pictures up of the three locations I'll be using so check back!
Taylor, Texas was not on my mind as far as being one of the locations I use, but it was too cute to pass up. I met the Roeders (long time friends) in Taylor for a family shoot and I think you'll agree that the character of the town is so unique. Jonathan and I grew up together and ran in the same circle of friends throughout high school so I must say that it's a little weird to see him be fatherly and act like an adult. I kind of wanted to sock him in the arm and tell him to quit pretending to be mature. I restrained myself. Vanessa, his gorgeous, and oh-so-talented wife has long been an artist that I admire and respect. Aside from being beautiful and talented, she's sweet, too. Their little ones are adorable in every way and it was so nice to see them all.
