Sneak Peek | Michael and Christi

Here is a sneak peek of what I am working on right now…Jeremy and I had so much fun with Christi and Michael this past weekend. These two have such a laid back approach to life and love and I tried to capture that in their photos. Their wedding is coming up in less than a month and I just know it will be a ton of fun!

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.

The blues and greens work wonderfully in these photos. Great work!

Kwenje and Celeste | Dallas Fort Worth Engagement Session

I can’t say enough good things about this couple. I met Kwenje while we were both in college, and we were also both camp counselors at the same summer camp during college. He is one of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met, so when he contacted me a few months ago telling me he was engaged and wanted us to photograph him and his fiance, I couldn’t wait for the oppurtunity. These two drove all the way from San Antonio and Houston for this engagment session all over the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex! I met Cele the day of the session and knew right away that the two of them were perfect for each other. These two have an amazing ability to make each other smile and when these two smile the people around them can’t help but smile.

Kwenje and Cele, Thank you so much for allowing Jeremy and me to capture your love, we had so much fun with the two of you. We are always on the lookout for genuine and fun people in this world and the two of you are it. You are individually amazing people and together you are even better. We couldn’t be more happy that God has brought the two of you together.

Victoria’s Bridal Session | Granbury, TX

This session was just so much fun. Victoria is so sweet and we had a great time and her precious mother in law who came along for the session. Victoria and James (Spud) got married yesterday at a destination wedding in Las Vegas, and I am so happy for them! We shot this session in the beginning of July and I have been dying to show off what a gorgeous bride Victoria is, she is truly stunning! Her Watters gown looks like it was designed just for her, and I was tempted to steal her gorgeous purple shoes! To view even more pictures of Victoria CLICK HERE for a Slideshow.
