Nicole & Patrick

After meeting and falling in love with Patrick, Nicole packed up her whole life and moved across the country to be with him in South Dakota…on the condition that they come back to Texas for the wedding.  I felt lucky to be a part of the day and to get a front row seat to watch a friend of mine enter a whole new chapter of her life.  Many congratulations to you both!  May your future together be as beautiful as your wedding day.  

Custom Photo Books

Choose your favorite photos from your online gallery and even provide a few quotes and facts, like Brody’s mom did, and our personalized photo books make a great keepsake or gift.  These hardcover albums with photo quality pages are such a great way to display your images, I have a shelf full of my own.  I loved getting a peek through Brody’s book of photos, chronicling a day in the life of a one year old.  I had to take a few shots to share on the blog before I passed it on to his mom & dad!brodybookweb

Baby Easton

Easton and his mom are a photographer’s dream…sweet, laid back and so, so stinking cute.  I enjoyed spending the afternoon with these two and love the photos we got from Little Easton’s newborn session even more.  Just wait until you see his Christmas picture!


Congratulations Felix & Jeffrey!

After over 3o years of commitment, Felix & Jeffrey finally got to say “I do” in front of friends and family in their home state of Texas!  The ceremony and reception last month at Riondo’s, on the The Strand in Galveston, could not have been more perfect.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such an important day in your lives, Felix & Jeffrey.  I wish you many, many more years of love!FJ2flowersFJposedFJceremonyDSC_8012bwcake

Living Yoga Program – Austin, Tx

This past July, I attend the Living Yoga Program, held at the beautiful  Radha Madhav Dham ashram, in Austin.  Nestled in the Texas Hill Country, the grounds of the ashram spread over 200 acres and serves as the home to many devotees.  It was unreal. The all day yoga, the temple, the artwork and carvings, the peacocks, the scenery…we even saw a shooting star one night!  During my 9 day intensive, I fell in love with this place and the beautiful people there.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to go back later this month to finish up my training and attend the Texas Yoga Retreat!  I can’t wait to see my little yoga family…webLivingYogaProgramwebshivasunsetweb_butterflywebbabypeacockattemplewebtemplesignswebbreakfastspotwebaprilpeacockswebmandalawebhammockbreakwebmorningriverwebjessicawebpeacockjency webbutterflyeats

Brody is One!

The Martins make me smile.  They are totally natural in front of the camera, have a pretty cute kid and always keep me laughing.  That, and they can serve up some mean BBQ.  It’s so neat to see how much Brody has changed since his newborn pictures last summer.  I love how their family pictures always reflect what a sweet, silly, fun family the Martins are in real life!    

Jamie & Jarrod

When our friend told me that his wife referred her cousins to me for maternity pictures, he described Jamie as “…a super cute prego lady”.   Sure enough, even after running late, getting lost AND shooting in Texas July heat, she still looked like this!!  I, on the other hand, did not look this cute when I got home & made it to a mirror…totally unfair.

It was so nice to meet you guys, Jamie & Jarrod!  Thanks for being such good sports.  I can’t wait to meet little Noah!

Welcome home, Luke!

I had a great time meeting this cute, little nugget last month!  Luke spent a few extra days in the hospital, but we were able to squeeze in a last minute newborn session at their home.  He totally turned it out!   Max, the family’s dog, closely supervised while Luke napped and smiled the afternoon away.   Thanks for having me take these first pictures of your new little family, Chrisy & Mike!



How gorgeous is this girl?  Maddie makes an awesome little model and is every bit as sweet as she is pretty.  Thanks to Maddie & Jennifer for playing along…I love these photos!

The DuPonts Get Married!

The DuPonts throw a mean party and can definitely shake a leg!  I had the best time photographing Shirley & Joseph’s beautiful wedding at the Omni La Mansion del Rio, in San Antonio, a few weeks ago.  These guys really love each other…and their friends.  Their day was beautiful and Parker could not have done a better job as Dog of Honor.  Congratulations, Mrs. & Mrs. DuPont.  Thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your day!DuPont7DuPont5DuPont8DuPont6DuPont9DuPont10DuPont4DuPont11DuPont1DuPont12DuPont3
