Paurus Family Session at Sekrit Theater | San Antonio Family Photographer

Julie and I connected through photography - She is a local photographer here in San Antonio and I thought I saw her one evening out at Cibolo Nature Center and messaged her on Facebook to see if it was her.  Well it wasn't, and then my pocket requested almost $4,000 from her and we became fast friends.

We immediately started talking about Sekrit Theater - this amazing, unique, beautiful and fun venue to shoot at in Austin, TX and planned a family shoot for her and her crew.  Almost every day of those two months Julie and I talked about their shoot, clothing choices, family and our friendship grew.  The week of her session we were both ecstatic - Texting non stop about final outfit choices and the fun we would have out at Sekrit.  

To say we had a blast is an understatement.  We really enjoyed our time together; I got to hang out with her beautiful and loving family and capture these sweet memories for them and it couldn't have gone any better than it did.  The love everyone has for each other is outstanding, the way her babies kiss her and hug her left my heart in a puddle and her and Sam, her husband, have this chemistry that bounces right off of them.

I loved loved loved not only shooting Julie and her sweet family, but my time spent out at Sekrit Theater.  Beau, the owner is kind and amazing and deserves so much respect for this beautiful venue he HAND BUILT.  If you get a chance to get to Austin, visit Sekrit, hands down, you will not regret it!
