Meet my BFF Lisa ~ Austin Family Photographer

Remember when I wrote that it was nerve-wracking to photograph another photographers’ family? Well, photographing your best friends’ family might be a tad more scary.

A very determined little girl.

Our sweet Sabrina is such a determined little girl. While we were on vacation she decided that she was going to learn how to ride a bike … and she did just that. She has shown absolutely zero interest in learning how to ride her bike without training wheels until now. She was perfectly content...

    Hi Jane, Sabrina is so definitely her mother’s daughter. So many things she does, says, and “the look” all remind me of Katie when she was little. It is so fun to have a granddaughter.ReplyCancel
