STEFANIE MOORE PORTRAIT SESSION

Portraits of Stefanie Moore in Austin Texas. Bonica Ayala Photography.

My portrait session with Stefanie Moore was a dream! Stefanie is gorgeous, talented and so much fun to work with. Stefanie’s vocal talents can be heard in Conspirare, Seraphic Fire, and other chamber groups across the country. Stefanie and her delightful entourage (Beth Beauchamp, Tynan Davis, and Blood and Glitter Makeup) were all-pro and fabulous to collaborate with.

AUGUST BIX

A few weeks ago, I had the lucky privilege of getting to spend a few hours with the very handsome and well behaved August Bix while his mother gave a radio interview and big poppa was away with work. So of course I brought my camera, and when momma Beth returned we did an impromptu little session. I love these guys, and could capture their special moments all day. I am also aware that I’m a little obsessed with Bix’s toesies… Enjoy!

YVETTE + MARIO: HERE COMES PIPER RAY!

Yvette and I go way back – to the days when recess was the most important part of the day. So when she asked me to shoot her maternity photos, I was thrilled.

I’m so excited for them and this new adventure they’re ready to embark on with little miss Piper Ray.

MARFA, TEXAS

Marfa, Texas. Love it. I love the seven hours it took to get there from Austin. I love that the trip was a birthday gift from the most amazing person ever – Laura – who also happens to be my wife (lucky me). This birthday year was a special one.
