{Audrey} class of 2011

This is probably my top meaningful session I have had. Probably more so for me than her, but needless to say it is! Audrey is so smart, caring and beautiful! She will be attending Rice university. Way to go Audrey!!!
Im going to share a little back history and some really meaningful and low moments that her family has made it through. This post has been very hard for me to write because of the emotion and I have been putting it off as to make it through the whole thing.
When Audrey was younger, she and her sister used to help babysit my 2 oldest sons when I REALLY needed them, Usually at the very LAST moments notice. Her mother hired me to work for her in apartment leasing, MANY moons ago. If it would not have been for her, I would not have been working at the place I was when I met my sweet husband. If I have never told you, Thank you! Those were some great times, and some sad times. Through it all, it was great to see her grow up into a BEAUTIFUL young lady!
SO......there has been a very traumatic time in there life that they have been through and completely trusted in God. It is amazing to see their faith and love through it all. Audrey had a beautiful older sister Taylor. She was full of life and happiness, a true testament of life. Taylor met a very sweet young man and fell in love. She was pregnant with her first baby and on her way to have lunch with her mom at a family members house, the weather was starting to get rocky, which happens very often in Texas and at a drop of a hat! Taylor got out of the car to go into the house, and when she stepped out, she was struck by lightening. It was then that Jesus gained a beautiful girl and sweet baby.  She was rushed to an intensive burn unit but the damage was too great.
Audrey and her mom are such warriors. I love you both. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life, and thank you for being in mine!

Look at all her cords! She has accomplished so much! I can't wait to hear what you accomplish at Rice University!

 The one below is The most special. The peace sign was for her sister! Something Taylor would have done! Love it!

Dallas {wedding}

I have been second shooting a lot for my Friend Amanda at Mulberry Lane Studios and I have not been able to post as many of the pictures as I would like. I have a lot more editing of those sessions to do, however...I could not NOT edit a few of these pictures of this bride and groom I shot this past weekend. I came home and started to edit! They were so cute and they had no problems letting us play! We got a chance to play with light. This particular wedding was actually shot with Chris Herbert at The Modern Mutt. The three of us have really been working as a team getting through this busy wedding season! It sure has been crazy! But also Amazing. I LOVE weddings. So here a few from that night. I will post some more later!

 I LOVE this one!!!! {below}


family {wedding day}

Last month I photographed my brother in laws wedding and I was so thankful that they asked me to do it! It really meant a lot to me! We drove down with the family for a little bit, got away and I was able to do what I love while I was there! It really was a lot of fun. Of course any time that I get to be with my family is wonderful.
So my new sister in law had a fabulous wedding dress and my brother in law was dressed up so nice. They had just moved in their new house and decided to have their wedding in the back yard. Now they do not have just any ordinary back yard! They have lots of trees and a perfect spot right in the middle of them for an isle and chairs! It was PERFECT! She had the trees decorated with really cute signs. Her and I have very similar taste so it was really neat to see all her great finds and furniture she has refinished! If anything was going to be missing, she would know where to find my car!!! I would never REALLY take anything from them but she did have some really cool stuff! I can't wait to visit and go antique shopping!
Anyhow, Im really hoping that we get to do a trash the dress session because I think that it would be a ton of fun around there! I have LOTS of ideas!!! the pictures......

wasn't her dress Beautiful???
 saying I Do!!
 She has a beautiful ring!!!
 the bridesmaids were their daughters! And the groomsman was his best friend!
 I got a chance to have fun with the girls before cutting cake! Unfortunately we had TOO much fun and they had to know on the window to tell us to come inside! *oops*

 this was just one of the signs in the trees!

Baby {L}

Another one of my friends recently had her first baby and I was able to photograph him in his first week. He looks just like his daddy and he was such a good baby! He let me snuggle him for a while and then we got to work. My sweet little ankle bitter was getting a little jealous of his mommy holding a different baby. It's funny to see them get like that at such a young age. Anyhow, I had some new props and enjoyed getting to use them with baby {L}. Mind you his name was one that I wanted but my hubby wouldn't let me have it so I was SO happy that my friend used it!!! Thank you {E} and {M} for letting me photograph your sweet baby boy!


a special maternity session

So I had the opportunity to photograph a maternity session with one of my friends that I have known the longest. And when I say...the longest...I mean back from Kindergarten. We won't go into how long that is! :) wonderful friend {A} has the sweetest husband! I love them both and I am so very happy that they have found each other. But let me just tell you, they made my job very easy. And their love emanates in everything they do! Here are a few pictures from our session.

{little I's} first Birthday!

Im going to be doing some back blogging in the next few days. But right now I am going to start off with the session I finished up today! Little I is the chillest little boy I have been around! He was so easy going...but boy did he love his cupcakes! I had the pleasure of going to school with his sweet momma and photographing her when she was pregnant. This was also when I met her sweet Hubby. Between the two of them, I can easily see where he gets his calm attitude from!

 This was the coolest dinosaur I had ever seen! He loves it and was not scared of it at all.
 He loved his birthday hat!

 He was on ready to pounce on cupcake number two without a second thought!
