Sarah Ellison Lewis for Austin Monthly

This month I photographed Sarah and a few of her most treasured items for Austin Monthly's Favorite Things feature. I first photographed Sarah about 5 years ago. It was awesome to catch up with her and see she is killing it just as she was when I first met her. Her homes are always so curated with the most amazing pieces. To read the article and see her favorite things make sure to pick up this month's issue of Austin Monthly.

Tribeza cover + Women in music feature

I am beyond honored to have shot the cover feature for Tribeza's 15th Anniversary issue. I got to photograph 6  talented women in the field of music making their mark in Austin. It was a long day filled with all kinds of crazy colored gels and one beautiful serenade (scroll to the bottom to see video of Tameca Jones singing to us for that cover shot)  

they also asked me to shoot a little bts of things on my desk. here's a view of all the essentials.

  • actual prints- need to print more!
  • my midori with my lighting sketchbook
  • coffee!
  • micron pen (size 01 only)
  • cf case
  • masking tape that was used to put all the colored gels on the ligths

Sunroom x South Congress Hotel

Sunroom is one of my favorite boutiques in town, I always look forward to shooting together. Since they recently moved into the new South Congress Hotel it just made total sense to shoot there. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day or a more beautiful location.

Last weekend I got the opportunity to do a really fun shoot with the very talented Sara Domi. She wanted to explore black light reflective makeup and I was excited to play around with the black light source. We were so excited about the final product.

SBJ spring look book

Austin clothing brand SBJ asked me to shoot their Spring 2016 photos. We shot at a beautiful home on Lake Austin (that was once owned by Drew Barrymore) It was a long -and HOT- day of shooting but super happy with how these all turned out.

Summer Adventure

Bill, Pilot and I decided to take a very last minute road trip to New Mexico and Colorado, to get out of the Texas heat and into the mountains. We found some great Airbnb homes, including an Earth Ship in Taos and a cabin on top of Mt. Evans in Colorado. It was an amazing trip for our little family, so happy we didn't let another (two) years go by without a vacation.

Esby

We had a blast shooting the Esby Summer Look Book at secret beach.  You can catch the Esby girls inside Billy Reid at their Summer pop shop until mid-August.
