Brent and Alicia | Dallas Engagement Session

Jeremy and I had so much fun on this engagement session! Brent and Alicia are a blast to be around and we were shooting on such a gorgeous morning. I love when clients choose to have an early morning session, the cool weather and the lovely morning light always make it fabulous. We had a blast though the whole session and got some awesome pictures of these two. I just have to point out that Alicia is stunning and is so natural at posing, I didn’t have to coach her much because of how naturally graceful and beautiful she is. I just know that she is going to be a stunning bride in June. Jeremy and I are so excited for this wedding!

My Random Life #13

There are some great things about working from home, as we speak I am wearing yoga pants and a tank top with my hair in the messiest bun known to man…but that is in, right??? Don’t worry though, my toenails have a fresh coat of Essie nail polish in Watermelon…aka, hot pink.

You see, when I had to go to the hospital last week I was totally embarrassed, not by the fact that I looked sick and had to wear one of those wretched hospital gowns that doesn’t quite close in the back, but by the fact that my nail polish was chipped. With my growing belly my toes have seemed just so much farther away, but that is where Jeremy comes in. He didn’t volunteer, but he did agree to help me out and paint my nails for me…and I have to say he did a pretty good job. Thanks babe :)

I have a new current obsession with gas station icees. There are only two gas stations that have the kind I like, and we have been strategically stopping at those gas stations when we need to fill up, or when I just have to have one. My new love for icees has prompted me to tell Jeremy that there is a huge difference between smoothies, icees and slushies. Please tell me I am not the only one that knows the huge difference between them!

Here is one more sneak peek that Jeremy captured of Brent and Alicia’s engagement session that is coming to the blog tomorrow!

You are not the only one… they are definitely different! :) Oh, and btw, I really enjoy reading your blog. :)

What a cute shot!

Mary Marantz

So what is the difference between an icee and a slushie? I’m dying to know! :)

Kristin Schmucker

Haha…an icee is very finely shaved ice and you can’t separate the flavoring from the ice, but a slushie is more like a snow cone with larger chunks of crushed ice, and just like a snow cone you could drink all of the flavoring and be left with chunks of ice. Hope that helps @[307649:2048:Mary Marantz]…it is hard to describe. I will have to buy you one of each sometime to show you the difference!


I miss you guys so much! I’m glad to hear everything is going well. Business is booming, I see, and little Stella is blooming! :) I love Icees, too. My fave-orite flave is White Cherry…and sometimes I even mix in some coke for cherry coke. ;) *hehe*

Keep up all the great work. Prayin’ for you guys! Pretty soon you’ll be taking pics of someone a little closer to home. Can’t wait to see her. I have a feeling she’ll be gorgeous AND talented, just like her parents. :D Miss you guys, and love you lots! <3

He takes care of me…

Sometimes I just sit back and think about my life and thank God for all He has given me. I have a job I love, a family that loves me, a precious little one on the way and a husband who is my biggest supporter and very best friend.

I have been a little extra grateful for Jeremy in the past weeks as I begin to slow down a bit at the end of my pregnancy, he has been in overdrive. He picks up whatever I can’t do and makes sure that I am not pushing myself too much. From helping me with editing, to cleaning the kitchen and even painting my toes since it seems almost impossible to reach them these days. He works hard, goes to school and loves me and our little girl every day.  He takes care of me and I am so thankful for him.

My Random Life #12

I know these posts are supposed to be on Thursday’s and it is Monday, but let me just tell you it has been one of those weeks.

Last monday after coming down with a virus, I had to spend a few hours in the hospital and then it took a few days of recovery that involved lots of chicken noodle soup and some long naps on the couch. In the midst of all of the craziness I still managed to post Victoria’s lovely bridal session and Kwenje and Cele’s gorgeous engagement session. If you haven’t checked those out, you should!

With just a bit more than 2 months left till our baby arrives things are a bit crazy around here. Trying to finish up the nursery and collect the baby items that we still need, taking lamaze classes, editing photos, and scheduling lots of last minute sessions the next few weeks are going to be a little insane. It is a good busy though.

What do we do to get through it…well in need of a little relaxation on the way to one of many engagement sessions in recent days we popped in some Christmas music on the drive…I mean how can you not be happy when listening to Christmas Music? You might think we are crazy and you would probably be right…but that is just how we roll.

I posted a sneak peek of Alicia and Brent’s engagement session yesterday…aren’t they adorable? More to come very soon.

Your work is lovely Kristin! I’m so glad you are full time in the industry! Miss A.

Jeremy Schmucker
