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 […]

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 […]

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.
