Elsa & Violet

Being a photographer gifts me with all sorts of opportunities. Those of you who don't know anything about Rockport (Other than, "Oh yeah, I got a buddy who goes fishin' down there") should know that our nickname is "Charm of the Texas Coast." It's a small beach community that loves the local artist. Tons of retired artists come here to nest. You need no more proof than walking down Austin Street Station. Gallery after gallery of local artists with their best work on display for locals and tourists to enjoy. One of these prolific galleries is Estelle Stair Gallery. I'm sure you can imagine my excitement when one of the gallery's employees contacted me for a family session - IN THE GALLERY. She has two girls, Elsa and Violet, who were bubbly and giggly and everything feisty that little girls are. Jennifer and her husband were patient and loving and unbelievably sweet with their girls. They booked a mini session, but I ended up with over thirty images in their final proofing gallery. I cannot tell you how much I loved photographing this family. Thank you, Shatraws, for allowing me a peek into your family's love!

From the mama: "I can't thank you enough for taking such wonderful photos of our family.  When I looked around my house, I realized that all of my photos are old...these kids are growing fast and I must keep up with them in the photo department!  I'm just so glad I can remember these moments  with your beautiful images.  Truly, Mae, you really have done an amazing job.  I appreciate your sweetness and hope to be able to make a habit out of putting your images on our mantle.

With Warmth,

*Rockport/Coastal Bend families* I have ONE session left for the remainder of the year! Email me at maeburkephoto@gmail.com to get on the schedule!
