Family Portraits in Cedar Park, Texas by Mindy Ravines Photography

January 2nd, 2018

OMG…I’m horrible at blogging. Truth is I typically like to wait until after the holidays to blog about a holiday session as I don’t want to ruin someone’s Christmas surprise (family portraits to a loved one I’m friends with on social media or….their holiday card image is released before the holiday cards are even mailed to their loved ones-deep gasp!!! NOT ON MY WATCH). Needless to say these are oldies, but goodies! I <<LOVE>> this family…their souls are warm and loving, playful parents bring out the best in their kids during a portrait session (proof below), and look at them…they are a beautiful couple with beautiful babies! XOXO

Photographing families is the best. Families that live in the moment & play are my absolute favorites. This family is near and dear to my heart. When I was pregnant with my first child I introduced the gorgeous couple. Fast forward a few years and look at the joy on their faces, the sweet babies they created, and the love that they share. My heart is full.

It’s a huge compliment to have your ‘regular’ clients. It’s an honor really because seeing those genuinely happy faces fills my heart with joy. Joy. Fill your life with joy. Find your joy.


North Oaks Preschool Graduation Portraits by Mindy Ravines Photography

January 16th, 2017

The preschool age is the one of my favorite ages to photograph. Their expressions are natural, honest, and almost edible. Makes me want to have just *one*more*baby!

Young love in Zilker Park….by Mindy Ravines Photography

March 20th, 2016

A wonderful teacher friend of mine contacted me regarding her daughter’s recent engagement. I was honored. Without mentioning any names…I’m wondering if anyone will figure out which teacher friend of mine contacted me…she looks just like her momma! Beautiful inside and out. I couldn’t be happier for these two! The day of our shoot it was the ONLY cold and abnormally windy day in Austin’s mild winter. They were troopers. Here are my favorites:

Birthday portraits-Anisa….tween-age dream!

March 14th, 2016

This little angel is so beautiful inside and out! I love how she could care less about her outward appearance. Her beauty is real, pure, & completely oblivious to her.  Van Morrison knew how special ‘brown eyed girls’ are….I’m certain I sang that very song with the band at Crossroads (during my good ole days at Stephen F. Austin).  Oops…random trip down memory lane.


Here are my favorites of this brown-eyed girl:

Cheeks galore!

This three year old is comprised of joy, fearlessness, and shear raw energy. His cheeky smile is infectious. If you’re having a bad day this is your man!

His big sister has some sweet cheeks as well. Her inquisitive nature, positive personality, and love-filled smile will warm your heart instantly.

These two together is a fun filled portrait session! Here are a few of my favorites from our time together:
