Last month I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Willie Nelson. Not only did I get to photograph him, but also The 4th & Goal Gala that he was playing at that evening. Their goal was to help raise money for Darrell K Royal’s Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Austin City Limits Moody Theater in Austin, Texas. Such a scary disease, but a very cool event. Two air gymnasts kicked off the evening, and lots of University of Texas Band and Football Alumni made an appearance, as well as lots of other important folks! It was such a moving and emotional event, as there were SO many folks there to celebrate the life of Coach Royal, and raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness. And my goodness, did they raise some money!! Seeing how many people’s lives he touched in such a positive way was just incredible. I’m beyond grateful that I was given the opportunity to capture so many wonderful moments honoring “Coach”, as well as take lots of cool photos of Willie Nelson. He put on such a great show, and even his brother and sister were there to play with him. Some seriously raw emotion, and SO many great hits! His fans love him, and he loves for his fans to sing along with him! Since it happens to be Willie’s birthday today, I thought this was the perfect blog post. Not only did he play and help raise money for The 4th & Goal Gala back in March, but he also had an 80th Birthday Party Bash this past Sunday night to raise money for the victims in West, Texas. I would say that it’s clear that Willie is a pretty incredible (and talented) individual. I hope Willie has ONE HELLOFA BIRTHDAY today, and that everyone jams out to their favorite Willie tunes in honor of his 80 years of awesomeness!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLIE NELSON!!!!
I was thrilled when the Ducote’s hosts asked me to not only attend, but to photograph their baby shower. The gift of professional baby shower photos is definitely a good one to cherish those special moments with your friends and family. The little man decor was the perfect fit for their fall couples cocktail style baby shower. There was a good selection of great food and libations. Their baby bundle Carter will be styling for quiet some time with all the nice clothes and baby must-have’s they received. And to keep things interested there was a contest for all the guests to decorate a baby bib for Baby Carter. If you know Crystal and Drew, then you’ll understand why the winner’s bib said “I’m formal but I like to Party!” LOL Such a good time, and definitely a fun crowd. Keep an eye out for the Ducote’s Maternity Photos on the blog in the near future!
consider the gift of professional baby shower photos.

Every year the Travis County Medical Alliance gets together and has a picnic for all of it’s members. This year, I was asked to take family photos there. I had such a great time doing so, and I met so many different fun families! The weather was beyond ideal for a mid-day picnic at my favorite park in Austin… Mayfield Park!! There was a clown painting faces, live music, a tractor train, and of course the infamous/beautiful peacocks! Below are some of the MANY fun photos and good looking families I photographed. So many cute little characters and I hope to shoot some of them again one day!
I was super excited when I was asked to attend and photograph Super Kamren’s 4th Super Hero Birthday Party!! His super hero mom (aka Bat Woman) didn’t miss one single super hero detail when planning and decorating… from a super big coloring wall, to a super cool bouncy house, to a super yummy cake and super cute party favors (I could go on, but I won’t…lol). Kamren (aka Batman) had a blast with all his super hero friends, and all the grown-ups had way too much fun with the photo booth! I know there are lots of supers in this blog… but it really was a SUPER great birthday party!
We set out on a three day adventure to soak in as much of Austin’s infamous SXSW as we possibly could. After shooting KGSR’s SXSW Live Morning Broadcast each morning, we sought out endless shows and even more weird sightings. I’d say it was a huge (and incredibly fun) success! And needless to say, Austin is definitely still weird! You can check out a bit of our adventure in the photos below.
I am SO glad that I had the opportunity to see and take so many great photos at the KGSR SXSW Morning Broadcast Concert Series at the W Hotel here in Austin (click here to see a list of each days music line up). For a $5 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas, folks got to enjoy a tasty breakfast snack and 4-hours of exclusive, live interviews and performances from featured SXSW artists! I was introduced to MANY amazing new (to me) artists and have since drastically improved my music library. Click here to see live video of some of the performances from the concert series.

Austin is such an amazing place to live… I think we can all agree on that! The Zilker Park Kite Festival is one of the many cool events put on each year that makes Austin such a unique, outdoorsy, fun loving city! (www.zilkerkitefestival.com) If you’ve never been, you absolutely should. My photos do little justice for the sensory overload of awesomeness that you will experience. This years conditions were perfect and there were SO many creative kites! I’m already looking forward to next years festival, and I may actually even bring a kite!
I am very excited to be a part of such a wonderful celebration! Lydia’s wedding shower turned out absolutely beautiful. Family, good friends, a few non-cheesy games, lots of great shower gifts, good food and mimosas… what else can a girl ask for?! I’m looking forward to shooting her bridal photos in the near future, but of course, those won’t be going out until after her big day!
I was very excited to shoot this little man’s 1st birthday party! His super creative momma Amber, really outdid herself and didn’t miss one little detail when planning his big carnival. It was definitely one to remember!
