Texas’ Big Sky

Texas sure does live up to it’s reputation for having big skies! I took this panorama tonight at sunset during a Bluebonnet session. It’s just incredible to take in! This photo was taken at Mule Shoe Bend Recreation Area in Spicewood Springs, TX (about 45min drive from Austin).

In years past, half the water you see there was lower and full of Bluebonnets. But with all the rains this past year, and Lake Travis filling up, the lake levels are much higher and all the Bluebonnets are under water. Luckily, there are plenty of beautiful patches of Bluebonnets available, just not as big as previous years. The remaining patches of Bluebonnets are currently peak as of today and will have a beautiful bloom for another week or two before wilting and dropping seeds.

I look forward to going out there again and hope the existing fields bloom and grow with what area is available!


Timeless and Classic Paintings Recreated

Teodora’s Portrait Studio’s new department of classically refined old masters photography and artistry, Reverie Fine Art Portraiture, has some new work to share!

I’ve always wanted to try re-creating a painting by one of the old Masters and this was my chance! I’ve had a profound influence by the romantic painter, Waterhouse, and the realism of Dutch master painter Vermeer.  My set was designed with as much luxury, rich color palette and romantic elegance as I could put together. I truly hoped to give the session the look and feel of a timeless piece of art. My sweet model embodied the beauty of old with her gorgeous cheekbones and the wardrobe helped give it a place in period. 

In the end I had my final piece painted and will be on canvas. Here are some of the images from the session, the first being my painted piece!







Time for a wardrobe change!
