This past weekend, we had a normal Austin weekend. We spent Saturday afternoon on SOCO (South Congress for you non-Austinites) and had some drinks at this place called Docs. I’ve loved this place for a LONG time. It’s super chill, food is wonderful (try the fried pickles), and the beer is cold. After we hung out there for a few hours, we made a pit stop at my favorite shaved ice place in Austin: Sno-Beach. It is one of Austin’s original food trailers, and the ice is so smooth and tasty. I had the sugar-free coconut add cream, and Luis had blue bubble gum. Yum!
Sunday Luis wanted me to try this place in Round Rock called Greenhouse. I commonly refer to Round Rock as “Chain City.” He hates it when I call it that but Round Rock is different from Austin, Austin thrives on mom and pop, local, anti-chain atmospheres and every chain created lives in Round Rock. So, at first I was a little skeptical when he said let’s go here, but he had me a local craft organic food. So we went Sunday morning and holy moly, this place is AMAZING. First off when I walked into the door, I didn’t think I was in Round Rock, I thought I we were visiting a cute little farmhouse cafe in Fredericksburg or Boerne. The decor was the cutest ever. Fresh flowers in mason jars, all white tables, the cutest light fixture I’ve ever seen and then I looked at the menu. Affordable plates where everything is made with the freshest ingredients and they are all from Texas. That’s right, they support TEXAS. The food was delicious, and the wait staff and employees were super kind. Check this little gem out if you are ever in the Round Rock/Austin area.
Saturday we found out the Texas Stars were in the playoffs, that is our local minor league hockey team. I told Luis that I’ve never been to a hockey game and being the sweet guy he is, we made plans to go! I have to say I am now a hockey fan! It was sooooooo much fun. They won the game 7-1 and are now in the finals!! Woohooo! I think we are going to go this weekend to another game, I need to find a hockey jersey and sport it. Hahaha. Now, I just have to figure out how I can become a hockey photographer, that would be SO cool!
I hope everyone had a fun week like we did! Check back for some music photos!

After Gary Clark Jr wrapped up outside at Stubbs, Jonathan Tyler + The Northern Lights took stage inside and I was able to photograph TWO photo bucketlist bands in ONE night! Heck yes! Here are a couple of sneaks from their set. One of the photos might be in my top 5 photos I’ve ever taken. 🙂 Check back soon for the fulllllllll album!
I love everything about this photo. I like the color version too, I’ll post it with the rest!

This past Friday I was able to mark another artist off my Photobucket list! I was introduced to Gary Clark Jr over a year ago and I immediately fell in love with him. His talent blows my mind! I’ve been trying to get to a show of his for a while but he’s been touring all over this world. He finally came back home to Austin this past weekend and played 2 sold out shows at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q. I was lucky enough to get a photo pass for his Friday show. I got there and realized there wasn’t a pit for us photographers, we were in mixed in with the 1400000000 general admission people. Yup, Princess Photostar was thrown a different element! I end up actually enjoying it even though I was stuck in one spot for the show. I met some cool photographers and was really grateful they took me under their wing to make sure I got some good shots. SEEEE we aren’t all competitive stuck up, aholes. :). I also go to go back to the days of only shooting the first 3 songs! Here are the photos I took Friday night! Let me know what you think and look back for another BUCKET LIST band I photographed after Gary Clark Jr.

Happy Thursday! I wanted to share this photo as a sneak peek. I’m so busy with work and often times generally overwhelmed and so I’ve been making myself find ways of relaxation and calmness. I’ve been documenting it as well and I thought I would share this photo with you until I’m finished editing. This photo when I look at it, makes all my stress just disappear. I think because it reminds me as a kid when I would lay in the grass or swing on my swing in the front yard, I would lean back, close my eyes, look into the sun and just breathe. Sometimes with all the stress, anxiety and other issues I deal with on a daily basis, breathing can be a difficult task. This picture helps me remember the fun times I had in my childhood. Hope you like it and look for the full album soon!
P.S. Look for me on the sidelines at the Texas Tech vs Baylor game! I’ll be the one with a camera standing next to Kliff the whole time 😉 hahahahahaha. JJ. But, I really will be on the sidelines photographing the game, I apologize in advance for the amount of Instagram photos that will be on your feed. I have never been to Cowboys…errr… AT&T stadium, so I’m just a WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE bit excited! WRECK BAYLOR!

Hope everyone enjoyed the sneaks from yesterday! Here is the FULL album of photos! I’d like to apologize to Kyle Park, I accidentally erased all photos from his set. I’m horrified, I have never had that happen at a festival before. UGH. SO sorry. Please forgive me. Come back tomorrow and check for a sneak of Cody Bryan Band!
