Sold in Barton Hills

This new construction in Barton Hills didn’t even last a week on the market with Kim Fry @realtyaustin. Still had to share images of its beautiful design by Root Architecture and construction by Brodie Builders. 

That's a Wrap... on Bluebonnet Minis!

This is my first year to do bluebonnet mini sessions and I can see what all the fuss is about. The bold colors of the bluebonnets makes for such an amazing backdrop. Only downfall is how to plan outdoor mini session in advance during the rainy season. Here are some of my favorites of the season!

Portfolio Shoots For Elite Austin

This month we had several portfolio shoots with an Austin-based luxury staging company, Elite Austin. We absolutely love working on their shoots and trying to capture the talent of their designers. Portfolio shoots are especially enjoyable for us, because we get to be a little more artistic. Interior designer shoots focus on the quality of the work and furnishings rather than selling the home. Below are some of our favorite images from their July shoots. 

White Interior Walls Make a Great Blank Canvas

We had a busy month but I wanted to make sure I posted a blog of some of our favorite June shoots. White interior walls really provide a blank canvas to showcase these property. 

Gorgeous modern, new construction home in Rollingwood on Riley Rd. Featuring 5BD/5.5BA, pool/hot tub, three-car garage, and much more. Listed with Kim Fry at Realty Austin and built by Brodie Builders.

 

Brentwood new construction duplex built by MX3 homes on Wild Street. Unit A includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and garage.

 

Another modern, new construction duplex coming soon to MLS off South 3rd with Carl Shurr at SEED. Large corner lot with gorgeous oak trees, Unit A is 3BD/3BA, and Unit B 2BD/2.5BA.

Sleek and Modern in 78704

This sleek 78704 home will not last long on the market. The u-shaped design, white walls, and several sets of sliding doors and windows brings the outdoors in throughout the first floor. New to the market this week, listed by Kim Fry at Realty Austin.

Modern Construction in 78704

Another beautiful new construction home listed with Kim Fry at Realty Austin. This home was sold before it ever went on the market, but we still managed to capture some great pictures of this beautiful space.

We had the pleasure of shooting this beautiful residence in Pemberton Heights, just three short miles from Downtown.

Property is also available outside of these events with a minimum five-night stay. Nightly rates range from $1,200 to $2,000. For additional information regarding this property or other luxury short-term rentals contact Ashley Pigg with Den STR.

Random Sunday in Austin

After being cooped up in the house for two full days, it was time to take the cameras and see where the day would take us. We started at Austin Java for amazing pancakes, headed to the Lamar pedestrian bridge, then to the state Capitol. When leaving the Capitol we were found ourselves in the middle of a refugee rally. After spending some time pretending we were news journalists, we headed to the Lake Austin-360 Bridge Overlook. If you haven't been, you have to go. The views are amazing and it is a short walk to the top.

River Place Nature Trail

We were looking for a somewhat vigorous hike (at least for us) nearby with elevation changes. Boy did we find it, in the form of several, several (did I say several) steps. River Place Nature Trail was a beautiful hike and can't wait to go back in the spring when the creeks aren't dried up.

KGSR ACL Live

Who wants to pay $100 for and ACL day pass, when you can go to KGSRs ACL Live show at Threadgill's for a $5 donation to HAAM. We got to sip bloody marys and listen to Milo Green, Shephard, Echosmith, Glass Animals, and my favorite Houndmouth.

Mayfield Park Peacocks

Who knew there was a park full of free-roaming peacocks near Mount Bonnell? Well, we didn't. We went to Mount Bonnell to enjoy the view and stumbled upon Mayfield Park. This park was a private residence that is now open for the public to visit. It includes a historic cottage, two acres of gardens, and beautiful peacocks that will just walk right up to you. This would be a perfect spot for a small wedding!

HOPE Outdoor Gallery

Downtown on 11th/Baylor is a great place to feel inspired. The Hope Outdoor Gallery is a three-story outside gallery where graffiti artists and muralists can display their work. It will even impress your teenagers. You can climb to the top for some outstanding views or just stay on the ground and admire the work. If you plan on climbing to the top, we recommend wearing comfortable shoes. It can be muddy and slippery in some areas.
