I was asked by a mentor of mine in my first year of business where I saw myself in 10 years. Not really a huge fan of questions like that, I gave a some fluffy answers that were enough to appease him. Then at the bottom of the page, where no one could see, I wrote to have my own studio before my 10 year business anniversary. I was too afraid to even share my dream back then, in fear that it wouldn’t ever really happen or that my business wouldn’t even last a whole decade.
Fast forward 9 years. In this year, my 9th year to own and run Brittany Dawson Photography, all on my own, I’ve checked off a big dream of mine. Something that I’ve wanted for so long. Just a space, outside of my own home, to call my own.
I’m thrilled with the choice of space, the natural light and huge windows. I’m excited to make it even more my own that reflects my photographic style. But in the meantime I would LOVE to photograph you all there!
All summer I’m offering some beat the heat specials – All ages and styles of shoots from Maternity, Newborn, Children, Family, Boudoir and Headshots – I’m down for it all!
Since having the keys as of June 1, I have shot 9 shoots already and learning how great the space is with each one.
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! I can’t WAIT to see what is store for my new studio!
One of my favorite shoots on the summer, Kelly and Tyne chose a wonderful venue in Luling, called Zedler Mill, filled with beautiful light, right on the river. I’m so excited for my 2016 wedding clients. The year is filled with beautiful couples, the most beautiful brides and some great wedding events to photograph!
With all the gloomy weather lately there was one day where the sun was bright and it was for this sweet couple. They trekked it all the way from Houston for this shoot and I’m so glad the weather came to show off and it was worth the drive! I’m looking forward to their September wedding.
With just a few weeks away from this sweet couples wedding, I thought it would be a good time to show some of their engagement pictures we took during the spring. The lush grass and overflowing bluebonnets made a perfect backdrop for Jamie and Dustin’s shoot!
Playing softly in the background of my office I can’t help but relate the lyrics of a song to the couple I’m seeing on my computer screen.
“Living the best days of our lives, these are the best days of our lives…
I know this happiness depends on if we share it with each other.
So when this craziness is through, I’ll spend my happiness with you.These are the best days of our lives.”
Spending the morning with Emily and Rich, I couldn’t help but see the love and happiness between the two of them. Always touching, smiling, laughing and genuinely enjoying each other, they are truly living the best days of their lives. It’s so true the lyrics “when this craziness is through, I’ll spend my happiness with you” – weddings can be crazy and a tad bit stressful, but instead of being sad that the wedding is over, be happy that the result is spending your life and happiness with the person you married. I think that’s a pretty perfect result of your wedding.
Mostly what I remember about Kassi is that tall, gorgeous girl with the legs from Flatonia who played Softball. We had a few mutual friends, so over the years I’ve always known who she was but haven’t ever gotten to know her. During their engagements, Kassi showed me how warm and sweet of a person she is – and I see why Andrew choose her. Their wedding is later this winter and I can’t wait – Kassi is going to be a bride goddess!!
I knew each of these two separately first, much like they knew one another, as friends. Sometimes without expecting, friendship can lead to much greater things, like finding your life partner in one another. That is exactly what happened with Kaylee and Michael and I was so happy to finally see the two of them together, as a couple and soon to be husband and wife. I’m greatly anticipating their wedding at Senglemann Hall this coming fall – it should be a good one!
I’m so excited for Lesley and Rocky! So excited for their love, wedding and what their future holds. It’s so wonderful to see family friends find what they are looking for and Rocky is just that for Lesley!! We spent the afternoon at Rocky’s family land, trying not to fall in the river, blow over from the wind and chasing the light. It was a afternoon well spent.
I’ve known Lesley since we were babies and her smile and laugh is how I would most describe Lesley.
Rocky and Lesley are so playful with one another. It’s fun to watch!
The sunset in a pecan orchard? Yes please!
