Brandon and Kristen are not only a stunningly gorgeous couple, they are also some of the sweetest people you could ever meet. I loved shooting these two and I think you will see why. They are getting married this month and I couldn’t be more excited for the two of them.

My Random Life #14

Can it be Fall yet??? Yesterday here in Dallas/Fort Worth the temperature was 101 degrees! Yes, 101 at the end of September! Today the high is 83 and I am hoping that the 100s and the 90s are finally gone. I just want to wear a sweater and not feel like I am suffocating when I leave the house.

There are so many new fall tv shows that I just don’t know what to watch. We have been amused watching the great and not so great auditions on The X Factor and Jeremy has been forced to watch America’s Next Top Model with me again this year. My poor husband knows how to smile with his eyes and booty tooch. The poor guy.

Only 8 weeks until the expected arrival of our little girl and our house is in full swing getting ready for our little girl. There is just so much to do. Last weekend we had 12 hours of lamaze class, we were a bit skeptical but we learned so much. On the itinerary for this coming week is to put the finishing touches on the nursery…it is almost there!!!

Do they make those outfits in adult sizes?! So cute, and I love that owl decoration!

Gina Long

Wow, Kristin! I thought FL was bad. Hoping you can get some cooler weather soon.

Krista Morgan

The heat is bad but pregnancy makes it more unbearable. hopefully you soon get cooler weather.


Can’t wait to see all the pics of Baby Stella’s Room!!!!!

cute, love the dresses! :)

I am in love with…Custom DVDs

One of my favorite things to do is to send out the disc of images to a client, I remember how exciting it was for Jeremy and I to get our disc of wedding photos and I love being able to do that for our clients. When clients receive their images they get them on a custom designed DVD imprinted with a photo from their session. A few days ago we got a whole batch of DVDs in the mail for our amazing clients and Jeremy and I just love them.  I hope that our clients love these DVDs as much as we love sending them out to them!

Hi Kristin, These are amazing! Love your work, where do you have the photo put on the discs? Do you have your own burner or send them somewhere? Is it a label? I want to do something similar…. :) Thanks!

Hey Kristi, Hope all is well with you. please dont tell your husband but i’ve got a crush on you LOL. But on another note i have a question. I saw your custom dvd blog post and they are perfect. Do you order them from some were or do you print them at home. I’ve always wanted to do something like this because I hate handing clients an empty dvd or cd. Just wanted to step up the presentation a bit.


The DVDs are printed directly to the disks through Miller’s professional lab. They do a fabulous job!

These DVDs are printed directly to the disc by Millers lab. They are awesome.

Little things…

Jeremy and I have a few rituals and traditions that we always do, and one of our newest is stopping on our way home from photoshoots and other trips around the Metroplex for our favorite things. For him that means a huge Mountain Dew and for me, it is a cherry icee (unfortunately on the day this photo was taken the gas station was out of Mt. Dew). We find one of our favorite gas stations and somehow the drive home seems so much shorter. I have also been known to ask for these when he is on his way home from work, or really just about anytime of day. I would blame the fact that I am 8 months pregnant, but that would mean that I would have to stop this tradition when the baby arrives, and I really have no intentions of doing that.

It is the little things in life…right?
