Shameem's peaceful and loving - Austin Maternity Photography Session by Melanie Grizzel


Shameem and Amaar met on a blind date  years ago and the couple had to date long distance fora long time while Shameem worked for her residency in New England. The couple married in the California wine country with an intimate group of family before they threw a blow out wedding reception in Austin in December 2012 click here to see their gorgeous wedding reception at Barton Creek Resort. They bought a house in the sweetest little neighborhood (perfect for thier coming family) in South austin while she wrapped up her time in Bostom. They finally get to be together all the time when she took a position near San Antonio and moved to Austin full time. We had such a wonderful time together for their wedding that they vowed to always keep me in the loop when their family had milestones and here we are. We haven't seen each other much since then, just casual conversation (and recipe exchanges) on social media, until now. The incredibly lovely, and almost sticky sweet, Shameem is expecting their first child. A baby girl coming soon. My all time favorite thing about this session is the second shot in the collection. I asked Shameem what kind of a husband Amaar is turning out to be and and her smile was so rich and spoke volumes about their happiness. I am so thrilled to follow my couple's (new family's) paths as they go through life reaching goals and hitting milestones. It's more rewarding than I ever imagined. 2015-11-17_0001.jpg 2015-11-17_0005.jpg2015-11-17_0003.jpg 2015-11-17_0007.jpg 2015-11-17_0008.jpg 2015-11-17_0004.jpg 2015-11-17_0027.jpg2015-11-17_0009.jpg 2015-11-17_0010.jpg 2015-11-17_0014.jpg 2015-11-17_0015.jpg 2015-11-17_0011.jpg 2015-11-17_0012.jpg 2015-11-17_0016.jpg 2015-11-17_0013.jpg 2015-11-17_0024.jpg 2015-11-17_0021.jpg 2015-11-17_0018.jpg 2015-11-17_0019.jpg 2015-11-17_0023.jpg2015-11-17_0022.jpg2015-11-17_0028.jpg2015-11-17_0017.jpg

Charlie Heras - Austin Children's Photographer by Melanie Grizzel

austin infant photographer Charlie Heras. The newest addition to the Heras Family. We had the pleasure of photographing Linsey and Marcos' wedding last year and they are a positively delightful family. So we were honored when we were asked to photograph sweet little Charlie and big brother Ben for their first family portrait. Unfortunately, Marcos was working.  Next time for sure.

11-17-08 Pregnancy by Melanie Grizzel

11-17-08 Since I am officially going to stop shooting for the moment until after the baby comes in January, I am going to fill my time with giving you a daily update of things that have happened over the course of this year. Namely, Steve and I are going to have a baby boy on January 2, 2009. So about 2 weeks ago my good friend Alyssa Kirsten was in town from New York to throw me a baby shower with Suzanne another good friend. The shower was outstanding and we'll cover that this week too. While she was here, I asked Alyssa to shoot some images of myself and Steve for posterity, and all of my pregnancy glory. She had to go to Houston first thing in the morning so our shoot had to be before first thing. Which should explain my hair ;)

Thanks for looking, talk to you tomorrow.

4-23-08 Meg's Baby Bump by Melanie Grizzel


I mentioned in a previous post that Meg and her husband Corby are expecting their first in May. We were scheduled to photograph them last weekend end but there were some scheduling issues so we pushed it off until later. So Meg heard from her Doctor that she was having small contractions so we had to shoot it this week just incase Faith decided to come early.
Here are my favorites from our Session on Monday.
