Austin Maternity Photographer | Charity and Chauncey

Charity and Chauncey are two of our closest friends. They are our next door neighbors. They recently welcomed baby Jax into the world. I’d promised them I would do maternity and newborn pictures for them, but with the iffy weather and hectic Christmas schedules, we didn’t photograph their newborn session until the middle of January. It was freezing cold and my fingers felt like ice, but these guys were troopers. Only as the sun began to set did we all feel the effects of the cold.

We went to a location I haven’t been to in over a year – a falling down red barn. I love the light there, but I was even more excited about seeing the luscious green grass in the middle of January. We had such a dry year in Texas last year that the beauty of the grass took me by surprise.

I’m so excited I’ll get to so closely watch little Jax grow up. He’s already changed so much in the time since I photographed his newborn pictures. I’ll have those up soon to share with you, too. First things first, though. Enjoy the maternity session!

Greece, One Frame

Yesterday I spent a lot of time reminiscing about Greece. I am yearning for a vacation away with Dustyn this year, dreaming of where we could go. I’m not sure where we’d like to go, but I know any time I have with him is perfect. Going to Greece seems like it was a dream, moreso a mishap. It all happened so quickly – the planning, packing, and booking tickets.

We always have a great time together. He makes me laugh so hard my cheeks hurt and I can’t breathe. I miss him even when I know he’ll only be gone for 8-10 hours while he’s at work.

I cherish the times we do have together. Times absorbing sights like these, especially.

I am going to be out of town this weekend at a conference. While I’m away, check in on him. Make sure he’s alive, please.

[And in case you're curious to see more of Greece, I put up two photos on Urban Grey today. Check them out here.]

Austin Maternity Photographer | Charity, Preview

She’s one of my best friends.

She’s my next door neighbor.

She’s due to have little man in two or three weeks.

She’s always wanted to be a mom.

Charity is one of the sweetest, kindest people I know. She’s selfless and always thinks about everyone around her. She and Chauncey’s baby boy is going to be one of the happiest little guys around. I made this photograph yesterday, and it’s the only one I’ve edited so far. It’s definitely a favorite though. Dad-to-be Chauncey will make his appearance in the whole post, but I’m definitely wanting to celebrate this gorgeous mama for a minute or two…

In September, I photographed their beautiful mom’s wedding. We had been planning a session with the two girls for a while. When they said they were interested in doing a session at the beach, I jumped at the chance. Being with these two girls was fun, inspiring, freeing, and perfect. I can’t even explain how much I’m loving working through these photos.

To me, this is the epitome of sisterly love.

Portrait and Family Sessions

Hi, everyone!

I wanted to write you a little hello to update you on something that I’ve been pondering lately.

After much thought, I have decided to take a little break from booking family, children, and newborn portrait sessions. I am in a transition stage here at Magan’s Lens. If you’re interested in weddings, engagements, couple’s, or anniversary sessions, please head over to Urban Grey Photography and take a look around. I will continue blogging here about personal life things and DIY projects.

I’m not sure if I’ll re-introduce portrait sessions, but for now I’m on a little hiatus from them. I need some time to brainstorm.

Thank you for  understanding and for being so supportive.

xo,
Magan
