These portraits at the Driskill Hotel Austin are so special. Not only because it is for a dear friend of mine, but because it’s her birthday celebration, and a celebration of beauty, life, and confidence! More about that …
Morgan’s Birthday at the Driskill
“I’m a multi passionate entrepreneur who specializes in creating warm, loving, safe & comfortable spaces for celebrating special events (Rambling Rose Ranch) and in creating a relaxed safe container for mind, body & soul in social settings (Classy Confidante).
My goal for the session was two-fold:
To treat myself, and to have images for my developing social coaching & consulting agency.
The session was part of my “happy birthday” gift to myself. I booked two nights in a balcony suite at The Driskill Hotel Austin. I spent my 18th birthday there so why not do it again, 36 years later?!”

“Part of the birthday gift to myself was a full day of professional makeup with Cody from Makeup ATX and hair with Alissa Shores. Followed by my awesome branding photo shoot with Naomi.
I had a dear friend long ago who said he saw an elegance to me. While I didn’t see it then, I definitely saw elegance mixed with my heart centered nature in my photos from the shoot.
The shoot itself was so much fun. Being a Capricorn, I struggle to get out of my head and just have fun. Naomi was a huge help with that. She was so encouraging, and her joyful spirit made it much easier to relax. So much so the time just flew by.
To say it was the best birthday ever is an understatement. Being pampered and then seeing yourself through the “eyes” of a professional photographer is something I believe everyone should do at least once in their lives. It’s a way to step outside of the societal view glasses we look at ourselves through to see the real you in all your magnificent unique beauty.”
“I wanted to play with my sensual, playful femininity. I have a heart for helping heal the masculine heart. Just as women have believed so many lies about their value, so have many men.
In order to heal our society, both the masculine and the feminine need to come back together as a cohesive whole of creation. This is my small part of helping towards that goal.”
