My Passion & My Work

Hey there and welcome to the Blueye Photography blog. My name is Troy and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer located in Austin Texas. I love making photos that are real... real moments, real smiles, real love. I'm not sure that I can put my photography style into a single category, but you can be sure that I'm looking for the best light and the most creative angles I can.

In my blog you'll find everything from sneak peeks of client sessions to personal information. My life is (almost) an open book and I like to share as much as I can. Most entries will include photos... this is a photographers blog after all. I also love feedback about my photography/posts/website/life so please comment as much as you like. I read them all and try to respond to each and every one.

After you've read through some posts and gotten to know a bit about me feel free to check out my portfolio site using the portfolio link above. The blog is updated more frequently than my site, but you won't want to miss checking out my portfolio either.

Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

In all of my traveling over the past 2 weeks I neglected to make a Christmas post on the 25th (oops!). Here’s a make-up post to cover Christmas and New Year.

I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Christmas full of warmth, love, and surprises and that you found some time to just lay back and look at the lights. Best wishes that 2010 proves to be even better than 2009 for you and yours!

Where does the time go?

It has been ages since I last posted (yeah, I’m a big slacker). Since I’m not taking bookings right now I’ve been spending a good amount of time photographing my son… he’s kind of irresistible :) Please forgive me and go visit our family blog to see more photos and videos of the little man.

Where oh where have I been?

I think Ferris Bueller said it best: “Life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Things in the Schneider house have been going full steam ahead. Our little one is expected in the next few weeks so Melanie and I have been working on the house… last minute preparations… and working on choosing a pediatrician and childcare/pre-school. It’s much more daunting than we thought, but the best we can do is make an informed decision and see how it goes. We can always change if something doesn’t feel right.

Due to the imminent arrival of our son I’ve also been trying to fulfill any open orders and close up my open albums so if you are a client and want something printed in the next 3 months you should really try to get your order in now.

Speaking of photos Melanie and I had a session with the awesome Wiebners (Joel and Rita) while in Lancaster in June. Here’s a sample from the session and if you click on it you’ll link to their blog where you can see more of us.

Also, if you are interested in seeing a couple of the maternity photos that Michele at Pinkle Toes Photography took of Melanie check out this post on her blog (hint: she’s the beautiful one in the bright green dress). Michele is awesome and will be doing our newborn session once the Peanut arrives. You can bet we will be sharing all of the wonderful photos from that session along with the many, many, many (did I say many?) photos that I will be taking once he’s here.

That’s all for now. I’ll post some photos of the nursery once we get it all finalized… it still needs a few more things (couple of wall shelves and curtains)
