Charis turns 1

I have a little confession to make. Texas is kinda growing on me. Although the beauty that I see here in Texas is nothing compared to the beautiful, majestic, mountains of Alaska (where I moved from), there is a unique undeniable beauty here. One thing I have really fallen in love with is a warm southern evening, with a slight breeze... perfect. Some dears friends of ours are mostly responsible f ...

Matt – Senior Prom

My homeschool career started in 7th grade. Somehow I ended up going to 4 proms... yes, four.  I still don't know how that happened, but it did. My husband, Chris, was lucky enough to escort me to 3 of those. I even wore a Versace dress to the last one (such a great thrift store find if I do say so myself). Looking back it's so nostalgic and it's hard to believe the last one was 6 years ago. For yo ...

Lake Travis – Austin

I'm a military kid. Moving to Texas from Alaska in 2009 was my 9th major move. I've lived all over the place and pretty much hate the heat. But, since I've had kids I've realized how much easier it is to play outside in 90 degree weather as opposed to 20 degree weather. So for the first time (maybe ever) I'm excited about the summer months. Swimming, grilling, sitting on the porch swing... I can a ...

Aaron + Daniela Downtown Dallas

These two were meant for each other. I've known them both for the past few years through Southwestern Assemblies of God University where we attended and Royal Family Kids Camp where we all volunteered, so when they asked me to shoot their wedding I was thrilled! Aaron and Daniela are silly, playful, and just downright cute together. Their wedding in July is going to be a sweet, memorable day and I ...

Chris + Priscilla

Priscilla and Chris were coworkers, friends, and now they are getting married. We met on a sunny spring day at Getzendaner Park in Waxahachie then headed to downtown. There was so much laughter between these two, they had me cracking up.  I'm so excited to be a part of their wedding day in just a couple of weeks.

Weston – 4 Months

This is my little nephew, Weston. He is my very first nephew and the squishiest little  baby I've ever met. He's so mellow and sweet compared to my two little ones and he squealed almost the entire shoot. He makes me so happy to be an Aunt, Tia, or whatever he's going to call me.

Paisley

There are so many things I can say about Paisley. She is my sweet little girl with such a silly personality. This little photo shoot was just a spur of the moment decision before her afternoon nap. She is the most smiley when she first wakes up and when she is super sleepy. We are so happy she is a part of our family.

Herb Gardening

I've never been a gardener. I kill plants. All plants, except one. My mom gave me this plant we affectionately call "planty" and I can't kill him. No matter what I do, even when he doesn't get watered for 6 weeks straight, he still lives on. SO this whole herb garden thing was quite the experiment. I was pretty sure I was going to fail. But, it lasted about 2 months. We ate the cilantro 4x, and I' ...
