Now, I should tell you that I HATE having my picture taken. I mean really detest to the core of my being having my picture taken.

Enter Lisa Woods of Now and Then Photography. Photographer extraordinaire/miracle worker. I did a shoot with Lisa earlier this week here in Austin. We met up at 7am to beat the Austin heat and headed out for our morning shoot. I was excited but apprehensive... And the shoot was so incredibly fun! I mean really fun! Lisa put me at ease right away and we just had a great time going from location to location and chit chatting. Smile, snap, smile, snap, smile, snap. Laugh, snap. Before I knew it, the shoot was over. And it didn't hurt one tiny bit :)
Lisa sent me over a few of the shots, and I wanted to show them off! This woman is just simply brilliant with a camera. The angles, the light, and the color saturation is just outstanding. So if you are anywhere close to Austin and need photos, make sure you give Lisa a call. Check out Lisa's blog for examples of the beautiful baby, wedding and portrait work she's done.
I was positive that I was too heavy to sit on that suitcase and I was convinced I was going to break it... :)
And mom, when I get the rest of the pictures back from Ms. Lisa Woods, photographer extraordinaire, I promise I'll get you a few new pictures :)
