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 […]

Emily and Evan were in pure parenthood bliss when their sweet baby boy arrived. We had a lifestyle at-home newborn session and baby boy was so peaceful. His nursery was decorated beautifully. We went out back for some Vitamin D and heard beautiful birdsongs and chirping. Congrats, you two!

There were tons of senior grads doing their photos as well. Such an exciting journey to celebrate, […]

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 […]

This season I’ve mostly done families and newborns, so you can imagine my excitement when I got to photograph these two love birds on their special marriage day! We had the most beautiful overcast morning light, some sprinkles (which in my culture symbolizes blessings for a lifelong happy marriage), and so many folks walking past […]

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 […]
