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

austin snow day

i mentioned the snow in my previous post. it really is a novel thing in austin. pretty much most of the state will get snow at some point in the winter months, but not our city. our terrain is a major reason for that, i think. anyway, i was driving through a shopping center when it started coming down and had to laugh. i felt like i was watching a hallmark commercial and strangers were about to start hugging in the parking lot. it was great to see the childlike joy on their faces.

my daughter was super excited too. she's two, almost three, so the perfect age to see her first snow. she played long enough to get the cutest pink nose.

jessica's one year session

i was really happy to get to have my second session with jessica, this time for her one year portraits. she's such a sweetie and was all smiles. she loved looking at the peacocks and i loved photographing her with her mommy. the weather was crazy beautiful in the 70's. we had snow three days later. it make my job so great when the weather cooperates.

i've never seen a peahen with her tail feathers open before. she was actually "courting" a male...or showing her son how to catch a lady himself, i'm not sure which. regardless, it was unexpected and kinda cool.

baby lola

kristy and i used to work together. it was such a breath of fresh air the day i meat her. we share the same faith and i loved her sense of style. as soon as she asked me to photograph their new baby girl, lola, i knew i wanted to make sure to include the beautiful tattoo on kristy's arm.

i am so in love with the first three photos. they turned out exactly as i envisioned they would.

kristy and justin, i had such a great time hanging out with you in your home. i can't wait for our other sessions.

justin grew up with this old piano in his home. it has beautiful character. i just couldn't help but to snap off a few shots of it.
