Engagment: Melanie and Joel

Engagment: Melanie and Joel

This precious couple had their engagement session about a month out from their wedding at the wedding venue itself. How romantic! The venue was a rustic outdoor sort of place that suited them so well. As we walked around, they spoke of the big day dreamily while telling me what decorations would be where and how they would enter, and it was just the most perfect sort of feeling to have for an engagement session.

Finally back to posting!!! I’ve had these sitting in my computer for months now, and I feel terrible denying the world the gorgeousness of this extremely photogenic little family.

These were taken back in August, so you can imagine the extreme heat of Texas and marvel at how they seem unfazed–might as well be cool spring day–which is quite a feat for this lovely woman who is nearly 9 month pregnant!!

Sisters!! You can clearly see that the gorgeous gene is genetic.

Wedding: Erika and Terry

Wedding: Erika and Terry

One could not have asked for a more lovely day to have a wedding as when Erica and Terry tied the knot at the Bingham House– a perfect backdrop to display the sweetness of this couple and their amazing and lovely girls. They are one of those couples that fit together so comfortably, so lovingly, that you could never imagine them ever having been apart. Not just in a peanut butter and jelly kind of way, but in a sun to sunshine kind of way. And seriously, their girls were the best! Gorgeous, kind, and absolutely hilarious! Can’t tell you how many times I was trying to hold my camera still while laughing. 

So happy I could be a part of their day to document all the gorgeousness!

Wedding: Sam and Angie

Wedding: Sam and Angie

A Disney Princess, that is what Angie wanted to be on her dreamy wedding day.  Let me spoil it now for you: she raised the bar for Princesses everywhere.  Everything from the tiara to the sparkles on the dress made her the most glamorous gem matched only by her enchanting persona.


The fabulous day started off with hair and make up for her and her bridesmaid and was followed immediately by a fun quick tribute to books and fairytales (and looking amazing) in a nearby books store.


Such a fabulous entourage


And then the fairytale really began

Family: The Franklins and a little more Christmas

The sweet Franklin family invited me over to their house to get some fun family portraits.  It was around Christmas time, so I am very sorry to be getting these out on the blog so late!!  But, it’s too precious to hold off, so enjoy just a touch of Christmas in February.2015-01-20_0017

2014 was their year to have Sam’s little brother Milo and move into a cozy neighborhood with a big back yard.  It’s a perfect home for a family of four (and a little room to grow…*hint).

This family!  Oh those two CUTE little guys!  The baby brotherly love is killing me! 2015-01-20_0021 2015-01-20_0022

This might be my favorite part: PJ’s and Dr. Seuss.

Happy New Year!!  I’m only a few weeks late…with the way things have been that is an improvement!  I’ve promised on Facebook to give you an update on some changes happening in my life and career, but that shall have to wait its turn as I am months behind on photography posts!  I’ve got some beautiful stuff to come, and to celebrate the brand new year, here is an adorable new born shoot.


Lucas was born September 2014, and I got to meet him not too many days after.  I had done a maternity shoot with Evelyn not even a month before, so I was very excited to meet the little guy.  He was probably the most laid back baby model I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.

Mom and dad are so sweet doting on their precious bundle of joy.

I am so very happy for my friends Evelyn and Brett!  They are expecting their first child any day now.  This is going to be one luck little baby boy having such sweet (and gorgeous) parents.

We started off the session inside for some lovely homey portraits.  The evening lighting coming in the windows really made it feel cozy.
