In a Whirlwind I Need A Moment, 5 Things

At this very moment I have 100 things to do, but I need just a moment to post a personal blog. To make it short and sweet I’ll go with the 5 things format because that’ll give me the moment I need without this taking up too much of my time and so… 1. Large […]

Abbey, Our First 2015 Senior Photo Session, Spring, TX

Abbey is our very first senior for 2015. I love when seniors decide to shoot in the fall, the weather in Houston is perfect for photo sessions, the skies are beautiful and the plant life is still full and green with just the slightest nod that it’s about to change seasons. Bill and I loved […]

A Photo Session Family of Three, Tulsa, OK

I have waited to take pictures of this peanut for one year. I’ve taken pictures of her parents when they were dating, while they got engaged, their engagement photos, at their wedding, and a couple’s family photos. Their photos not only document their lives but also the course of my artwork as a photographer. It […]

Baby CoraLee, a Spring, TX Newborn Photo Session

I’ve known these two for some time. They were students in our youth group years ago. I was Amie’s camp counselor and Bill helped teach Corey to play the drums. We’ve watched them grow and mature and now they’re parents themselves. Which all makes me feel very old. It was an honor to capture their little […]

Photo Class Pricing Change

Since this is our very first every photo class in this format I’ve decided to make a big change on the price. If this class goes well I definitely would like to offer it again in the future, which makes our very first attendees our trial run. I feel like that means they should pay a bit less […]

Issa’s Very First Day of School

I definitely thought I’d be more emotional. The hardest part was leaving her while she was crying, but sighing a great sigh and meeting up with our parent friends (who also have kiddos in Issa’s class) made things much easier. I’ve learned something about myself over the last year and half of being a mom, […]

Below are all the details. WHERE WHEN […]

I shot my husband.

Not too long ago Bill and I were either driving in the car or sitting in bed, or one of those places where toddlers are either in bed asleep or tied down and thus somewhat distracted. He looked at me and said, “you know, you’ve never photographed me”. And other than just shooting our lives and […]

So, do I just get a CD of images?

This post is long over due. I get this question a lot, “So, do I just get a CD of images?”, and when I hear it, my heart hurts. This is a loaded question, way more loaded than any client or potential client probably intends it to be. It’s loaded because it’s personal and because […]

Baby Judah and His Family, a Spring, TX Newborn Photo Session

This is a family who is near and dear to my heart. They were some of the first people to reach out to us when we moved (back) to Houston. They took us out to lunch after church one Sunday, neither of us had kids yet and Bill and I had only been married for […]
