Jane reached out a week before she was due with her second baby. It was a tight month with back to back sessions, but she was a referral from a recent (and awesome) client, so I made it happen! And I’m SO so glad I did! They are the most fun, lively, spirited, and happy […]

Vanessa wanted a relaxed family session with some bluebonnets. I worried so much about possibility of not finding a decent bluebonnet field in town because so many of our fields didn’t come back this spring like they usually do! EEK! This is likely because of our harsh winter freeze. Needless to say, we found a […]

I got to experience a beautiful family reuniting again for the first time in over a year. They stayed apart during the 2020 because of COVID. Grandparents meeting their baby grandchild for the first time, cousins meeting their new baby cousin, toddlers playing with their fun older cousins- so sweet! I’m really grateful I get […]

Wow, what a winter! I know in one of my previous posts, I mentioned how much this Texan loves to see snow. Well, scratch that! Ha. After this past winter storm, I’m not quite sure I’d like to see snow again! Thankfully, we all survived the long, dark days of power outages, water shut-offs, and […]

I just wanna leave this post up to celebrate such a memorable day for all. Our kiddos have never seen snow like this before…ever! My hubby use to live up north and saw snow regularly. He says this was “real snow”! But when you’re a lifelong Texan, you’ll take those once-in-a-blue moon tiny flurries and […]
