Laura and Travis and Sammy and baby

Congratulations to Laura and Travis and Sammy on the new addition to their family! They welcomed their baby girl last week. I was so glad they came to Austin (all the way from Corpus Christi) to grab some family and maternity photos at Bull Creek before baby Adeline arrived!

Laura and Travis were one of my first wedding clients, and it’s been amazing capturing so many memories for them over the years. They’re like family to me now. I’m always sad when our shoots are over and they have to go home… But, I can’t wait to see them again!

Laura’s Maternity Session

One of the perks of being a wedding and portrait photographer is being a witness to (and capturing) two people coming together and starting their own family. Laura and Travis have been with me since the early days of James Dvorscak Photography (six years and counting!), and it’s been such an honor to work with them over the years to capture their engagement, wedding, and now maternity photos. Here’s a little peek at Laura’s recent maternity session!

Portrait: Alexandra

Last week, I collaborated with some of my favorite people on a model shoot.  Alex was her charming self, doing double duty as wardrobe stylist and model. Vanessa (my first time meeting her) rocked her mad hair stylist skills, and Lisa knocked it out of the park with her incredible makeup artistry.

If you’re getting married, do yourself a huge favor and book Lisa (Faces by Lisa) to do you and your bridesmaid’s makeup — she’ll help you all look flawless on your big day!

Model: Alexandra Vara
Makeup: Lisa Jauregui (Faces by Lisa)
Hair: Vanessa Bustos

Hallie’s Senior Portrait Session in Memphis

I had the opportunity to shoot Hallie’s casual senior photos when we were in Memphis several weeks ago… yes, Memphis…. Tennessee? Elvis?  Bar-be-que?  Mississippi River?  Does any of this ring a bell?  My wife hails from Memphis, Tennessee, and her family still lives there. So, naturally, we visit on a pretty regular basis.

Anyway, Hallie’s mom had contacted me a few months back and told me that her daughter was really into soul music, and that she wanted to take some photos in front of the old Stax Records (which, if you’re not familiar, was the recording company responsible for Otis Redding and some other pretty big names back in the day)… and, oh yeah, she also mentioned that Hallie had a vintage VW Bug too. Say no more! Sign me up!

Hallie (and Pam) — I had a great time hanging out and getting to know y’all.  I hope you did too!

To see more photos from Hallie’s senior session, cruise on over to the gallery. (it’s password protected, but if you know Hallie’s last name, then you know the password!)

If you live in Memphis and would like to schedule a photo session the next time I’m in town (travel advisory: it’s sooner than you think!), contact me.  And if you’re in Austin, well then, what are you waiting for?

The Mighty Mighty Parker / Bowman’s

What can I say about the Parker / Bowman’s? You guys rock my world. If a pack of wild dogs ate my family as a kid and I was left as orphan, I would have so wanted you to adopt me.  Come to think of it, I still want you to adopt me…

It was such a pleasure working with Jennifer (can I call you mom?) and her family, and I’m so honored that they chose me to capture the spirit of their close-knit family.

While I’m waiting for the adoption papers to go through, I thought I’d show some photos from The Parker / Bowman’s family photo shoot downtown Austin.   Enjoy!

If you’d like to see more photos from their shoot, head on over to the gallery.  (It’s password protected; but I’ll give you a hint: it’s Tiffany’s nickname.)

If you’d like to schedule your own photo session, contact me.  Skipping lessons are free!

Angelica and Stroud and their kiddos

The first time I met Angelica and Stroud was on the day of their family photo session. And when we showed up at the location that we had planned on, we found that it was being prepped for a wedding.  Yikes!  But sometimes plan B works out better than plan A; and a spot that I would have overlooked on any other day turned into the perfect backdrop for a perfect little family photo shoot… (added benefit: an awesome soundtrack to shoot to thanks to the bluegrass wedding band warming up).

Angelica and Stroud, I had such a good time hanging out y’all and photographing your little family! Thanks!

To see more images and to order prints head over to the gallery. (The password is Angelica’s son’s name.)

To schedule your own family photo shoot, contact me.

Sofie’s studio session (finally)

When winter rears it’s ugly head in Texas, sometimes it’s just best to move indoors. (Not today. It’s 85 degrees and sunny outside. Go figure!) So when it was cold (back in November), I did some studio work with the lovely Sofia and the super-talented makeup artist Dee Azlan.  I’ve been kicking myself because I never got around to posting these.  Well, here are the results from Sofie’s studio session, straight out of “the vault”. Enjoy!

ps — I’m currently booking February photo sessions. If you’d like to play, contact me.
