sabrina bean photography attends The White Party

Being a photographer for Whole Lifestyle magazine has many perks, like  being able to attend the most anticipated party of the year hosted by Lifeworks! Lifeworks transitions youth and families from crisis to safety and success.  They offer  a safety net of support to more than 10,000 youth and families every year and provide the most comprehensive network of services in Austin through its 17 different programs. They also provide youth housing and homeless services that provide a pathway from street-life to self-sufficiency. Their services also provide  free and affordable counseling and numerous other support services. To learn more about Lifeworks please go to their website. So glad I was able to attend the White Party and meet some of Austin’s fine  philanthropists. Helping out a great cause and looking amazing while doing so… priceless! Some of the sponsors included Tribeza Magazine, Kendra Scott Jewelry, Grey Goose Vodka and delicious appetizers from Bess Bistro, Paggi House and Word of Mouth Catering which had me at their fried oysters! Mouth Watering good! I would also like to give a Huge Thank you to Leighelena on SOCO for lending me one of her gorgeous wrist cuffs to the party! I felt like a celebrity showing off my jewelry! Here are just a few pics from the night. To see  the rest of  photos from the party please visit my FB page.

Daily Austin Love for Austin Daily Photo by sabrina bean photography

This past nine months have been very eye-opening for me  in all aspects of my life. I’ve  had the opportunity to see a lot that Austin has to offer and it has been beautiful, weird, gorgeous and at times breathtaking, for me at least. There is so much to photograph everyday that it overwhelms me at times. I am so blessed that I get to do this everyday. To witness life through my lens is what I love to share with you. The pictures in this little montage I made are just a few daily photos of Austin that I share on the Facebook page Austin Daily Photo. I recently found this page and love that I can share my passion with other photographers and those who love photography in general. I wish I could have put more pictures in the movie, but you would be sitting for hours. I hope you enjoy the ones tha made the cut. The music is one of my favorites from John Mayer.

Ava really got into the play

Thumbelina at Ruta Maya with sabrina bean photography

This past Sunday my sis and I took Ava to go see Thumbelina at Ruta Maya coffee-house on South Congress. A fantastic play put on by the Violet Crown Company. A friend of mine was in the play and was a terrific country mouse. This was such a great little play for kids. My sister even had a little tear at the end of the play with its great message about independence and equality. Ava even learned some new words like “abscond”, “stationery” and “abode”. I was so pleased to see how many Austinites enjoying the play. By the time the show started there was standing room only. I’m so glad we got to see this adorable play.

Excited for Thumbelina to begin
