The one about our 5 year anniversary.

I'm one of those people that you might call "uptight." I like things to be a certain way and I have a borderline phobia of germs. Organization and list making helps me sleep at night so I don't wonder if there are things that I'm forgetting. I forget a lot of trivial information and I'm SUPER directionally challenged. It's pretty ridiculous, and not in the least bit funny, when my phone is dead an ...

Singleton Wedding – Girdwood, Alaska

Alaska holds such a special place in my heart and life. Alaska is where I spent most of my formative teenage years. I learned to drive, met my husband, graduated from high school, started college, started dating my husband, and even came back from Texas between semesters and got engaged. I met some of my closest friends during my time there and still question whether or not we will end up moving b ...

Babies Birth Photography


I'm a picture junkie, I always have been. I have 2 large, flat rubbermaid tubs that live under my bed filled to the brim with prints and negatives from growing up (labeled meticulously and organized by date and event. I used to keep a spreadsheet of photos that I had given to people so that I could make a print from the negative to put back in the box). I would take my little point and shoot film ...

Mary’s 1st Birthday – Dallas, TX Children’s Photographer

Being a parent is one one of the hardest, but most rewarding experiences I've ever had. The first few months are filled with so much love and doubt that it's a bit of a roller coaster of emotions. One minute you are just so in love with your new baby and the next you are just so, SO sad that you can't sleep or eat or shower or do anything without the little monster baby right there with you. Then ...

Ray Wedding – Corsicana TX, Wedding Photographer

Maddie and Cody were married just outside of Corsicana on a warm spring evening. With all the rain Texas has been getting for the past couple of months we were seriously worried that the wedding was just going to be a soggy mess. Not good when the ceremony and reception are both outdoors and there is no indoor space to hold the wedding guests. Thankfully we had some sun and some clouds throughout ...

Bag Gardening – Waxahachie TX, Lifestyle Photographer

Some of you may remember one of my first posts on this blog about our little herb garden. In case you missed it, let me fill you in. We are not gardeners over here in the Baca household. We have a house plant that is hanging on for dear life (although it is about 6 years old now) and we grew a small herb garden last summer in a wooden planter box that Chris had specially made for my birthday the y ...

Meeting Blaire – Waxahachie, TX Birth Photographer

Some of you may remember a facebook post I had a few weeks ago where I talked about how I was considering throwing in the towel with this whole photography thing. In case you missed it, basically I was severely discouraged and probably tired and hungry... I don't make good decisions when I lack sleep or need some food - ask anyone who knows me... I get grumpy, REAL grumpy. Anyways, so I decided to ...

Funchess Family – Dallas, TX Family Photographer

This family is so special to our family. We met Calvin and NiCole almost 6 years ago when we moved down from Alaska to Waxahachie to attend Southwestern Assemblies of God University. Calvin was Chris's dorm pastor and I became good friends with NiCole when I was her student worker before Chris and I got married. They have walked with us through some of our biggest life moments and hardest challeng ...

Meeting Preston – Plano, TX Birth Photography

Being a photographer lends me the privilege of being a part of really big life events. A couple's wedding day is something they will likely never forget. I still remember several weddings I attended as a child, the dress I wore and the bow my mom put in my hair. When families hire me to take photos of their newborn baby or their senior graduating from high school, I have the job of capturing these ...

Snow Day – Waxahachie, TX Family Photographer

This has been a weird week. It started off with a snow day. We had been anxiously watching the weather all week as soon as we saw the little snowflake appear on Monday's forecast in the weather app. Like most forecasts in Texas, you can't really rely on anything that is said (no offense weather forecasters), but most people start to get their hopes up as soon as anyone even mentions the chance of ...
