i can’t resist | austin newborn photography

July 31st, 2008 , Posted in Austin Newborn Photographer, sneak peek


I’m totally beat (I can barely hold my head up tonight) and I should be in bed. And, I have NO business messing around with pics right now when the re-launch of my website 4 photographers is just days away, but….I had to edit just a few pics from my newborn session today. I mean, c’mon. Can you blame me?



Give peace a chance.

That is how many openings I have left for the rest of 2008.



Please visit and check out the “availability” section to see when those openings are.

By the way, that little design up there is a also a sneak peek of one of the holiday card designs I’ve put together for this season.  Isn’t it groovy?  I can change all the colors, too. I might actually use it for our cards this year!

And since it’s against the law to post without pics and because I need a smile today, here are a few more that make me smile from one of the MOST fun family sessions ever last week:




This last one really appealled to me for some reason.  It is SUCH the picture of motherhood and how I feel most of the time. Life with little kids is a blur. It’s hectic. It’s fun. It’s unpredictable. It’s a new definition of beautiful.

pink is the new green | austin portrait photography

July 15th, 2008 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam


You may have noticed a push to go greener with my business over the last several months. From moving into digital files and online proofing (less travel, less pollution, less paper) to creating online brochures and info packets to trying to reduce the amount of printing/paper I use in general—well, I don’t know if it’s the pregnancy talkin’, but I sure like the idea of cleaning up this place just a little bit more. I’m not claiming that I’m going to save the world here with just little ol’ me, but they always say every little bit helps, right? 

Now, I’m thrilled to introduce my new *pink*green bags. (I’m such a geek!) Instead of packaging your CD’s and products in paper or plastic bags that typically get tossed, I will be delivering your Pinkle treats in these nifty little reuseable *pink*green bags. I’ve recently gotten into the habit of using green bags myself and I just LOVE it.

Want more?
Of course, I had to invest in a large number of bags and I don’t think I’m going to need them all. So, if you’re in the Austin area and would like some of these cool *pink*green bags, you can nab a set of 5 for $10 + tax (free shipping). To all my previous clients: I’ll add in an extra free bag with your order. This is less than cost, but I don’t care. I want these to see some use!

A contest!
And, to help get you into the habit of using these bags, I propose a little deal:

1. If I see you out in public USING your *pink*green bag(s), I will waive the Creative Fee for an ’09 Pinkle Toes photo session.

2. Or, e-mail me a pic of you (or the kiddos or significant other) in a public place USING your *pink*green bag(s) and you’ll get $10 off an ’09 Pinkle Toes session for EACH *pink*green being used (up to $100).

Easy as pink pie.

A little tip: the trick is *remembering* to take the bags into the store with you. I started keeping mine in the passenger seat of my car. I rarely forget now.

Terms and Conditions
– offer and contest good through 12/31/08 OR while supplies last
– prizes valid 3/09-12/09
– prizes are not transferable or redeemable for cash
– one photo entry per household
– one prize per household
– offer valid in Austin area only.

Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck to ya!

For fun
While we’re on the subject of pink, we should find out soon what we’re having…

Did some work today with these fabulous ladies of Vivid Design Group. I was so drawn to the vivid colors of their website and was so excited to see that come to life in their wardrobe choices for today’s shoot.





Now if only they could come do some vivid design work on my house. ;-)

The title says it all. And you’d think so even more if you knew this little one just drove in from CA (with her family) yesterday and was operating on very little sleep in a very new environment. I was amazed at what she gave us considering the circumstances. Just a beautiful child!


Selective coloring isn’t my most favorite thing to do in the world, but I thought it was pretty cool for this image. Reminds me of “Through the Looking Glass.”



My fav!




This turned out to be the perfect way to end the session. She LOVED her little bath!
