About Me

Austin, TX, United States
rubigirl photography was created out of my desire to capture special moments for my friends and family. i found so much pleasure in it that i decided to make a career out of it. i shoot in a photo journalist style as i love candid shots and feel it is the best way to capture a moment. the name rubigirl photography was born out of my love for my dog rubi. when she looks at you with her big amber eyes you know that you are the most important person in her life at that moment. i feel the same way when capturing a special event or time in a person's life, you are the most important person in my life at that moment. if you would like to contact me for information you can email me at RubigirlPhotography@gmail.com

my beautiful sisters and i went to embellish for a relaxing pedicure on thursday evening. i love this place, all pink and girlie. they don't use the throne like chairs you see in the typical spa. instead they use big bowls full of pink water and you sit in comfy chairs, or if your lucky like i was, on the pink couch. i love this place.

mothers day

mothers day weekend my sisters, mom and i had our second annual mothers day brunch at the hyatt downtown. the food was so-so this year, which was a little disappointing, but the new decor was beautiful. i've always loved this hotel and am so glad they're proactive in keeping it a beautiful place to visit. i grabbed these shots of my daughter and nieces looking up into the atrium as we were leaving. i hadn't really felt like taking pictures that day and was really regretting lugging my heavy camera to what was supposed to be a relaxing morning. however, i was so glad when i saw the girls sitting on the couch that i had it.

baby aiden

this sweet boy and i share a birthday. i think it was touch and go there for a while, but he came april 30th. we're friends with his mom and dad so i was excited when i signed up to take them a meal that i'd also be taking my camera. darren and joel teach middle school so they are well equiped with the patience needed to be a parent. i've no doubt they are going to be rock stars.

karen's girls

this photo shoot came as the result of a referral from my hair stylist tara, whom i love. karen contacted me wanting to get photos of her two daughters, step daughter and granddaughter...as well as herself. they were such a gracious group of women. i have a hard time remembering names, two of these gal were victims of my memory. they kept telling me not to worry about it and finally with word association by the end of the session i had all the names down.

i love the relationships women have with each other within their families. this one was especially sweet. had i not know ahead of time i would never have guessed that there was a stepdaughter/sister in the group.

thank you karen, donette, dawn, carissa and ashlee for a fun morning at laguna gloria.

asher + adeline with mom + dad

asher and adeline are really great kids. ashers energy allowed me to capture a wide range of emotion, which i love, and adeline's laid back personality allowed me to capture her sweetness. once again i had a hard time choosing just a few photos to post, so there's a lot to look at here.
