Happy Birthday Mila!

Happy Birthday Mila!

Earlier this month, I photographed, perhaps the cutest shoot and subject to-date. Mila, her family and I met at the park early one Saturday morning to take some pictures for her upcoming 1st birthday. And Monday she turned 1! A couple of weeks ago I shared a Fave Photo Friday post with y’all of sweet Mila, but I didn’t want to share too many pictures until after her birthday. Well I can’t bear to wait any longer! What a doll! Her expressions throughout the shoot were just “Awww” worthy. It…

It’s Fri-day, it’s Fri-day! < insert happy dance > Well it’s been way too long since I last had a Fave Photo Friday post! But I just had to share this one from a shoot I had earlier this month. I will have more to share of sweet, happy Mila, but that will come later when she turns the big 1 year old! But this picture. Y’all I absolutely adore black and white pictures. And this was a picture that accidentally got taken during an outfit change and camera adjustments!…

God is Good. Yet another post about being blessed.

God is Good. Yet another post about being blessed.

God is good. Though it may sound like an original phrase, possibly under- or over-used depending on how you look at it, but after the week I had last week, I am reminded yet again by the dear Lord how blessed I am. From the seminar for work I attended last Monday to the 4 days I spent out in the middle of nowhere with my family then to the float trip with my fellow Ags on the Comal River and finally to my trip to Luckenbach, Texas, on Sunday….

A Getaway in the Hill Country

A Getaway in the Hill Country

Unplug and unwind. That’s been the theme of our family vacation this year. This is the third year in a row that one of my grandparents have turned 80. In 2013, we threw a big party for Grandpa out at our house that included a dance out on the patio. The next year, it was Granny’s turn. For both of these parties, we sent 100+ invitations. We had to turn fields for grazing into parking lots and have all of our relatives bring a picnic table so everyone could have…

Came, Saw, Conquered

Just a headsup, we are only a few weeks away from being halfway through 2015. How is that even possible? Does anyone not feel like time keeps flying by faster and faster? Oh the days when summer vacation seemed to last an eternity. Now a whole month flies by and in a blink. In all though, May was one heck of a month. I accomplished a lot both professionally and personally. Life has been pretty much a blast. Like I’ve said countless times, I live an extremely blessed life but…

Juxtaposition

Juxtaposition

Juxtaposition is precisely how to describe my life sometimes. Here, on Tuesday, I posted how dearly I love taking pictures of cattle and being out in the wide open spaces, and then below, you’ll find my most recent pictures of the concrete jungle that surrounds me from 8-5. Ok, concrete jungle is quite the overstatement. Actually my view is quite beautiful most days out of the year. Sometimes I find it hard to keep up with my photography habit. Not that I don’t love taking pictures, it has just, lately, it’s felt…

So yes, today isn’t Friday. Whoopty shi…. I mean I am sorry. haha. It’s been an incredible last few weeks. I have taken on more photography projects outside of my real- big-girl-job. It has made for a whirlwind of work on top of work, but I’m in the prime of my youth and that’s what we are supposed to do, right? Anyhow, this pictures I took a couple of weeks ago out at my family’s place. This is a beautiful first calf heifer. She’s pretty unique to the rest of…

I am still so stuck on Karissa & Richard’s photo shoot. I am absolutely in-love with the pictures of this stunning couple. So blessed to get to work with such happy, beautiful people! This is my absolute favorite, also great in black and white but I stuck with this one. I caught them when they weren’t even expecting a photo to be taken. I was supposed to be going to get the mule to bring around to them, but when I happened to turn around, I found them in one…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 6

Holy moly! Where the heck did this week go? No complaints, just amazed how with each year that goes by, time only goes by faster! This week’s Fave Photo comes from an engagement photo session I had the opportunity to do a couple of weeks ago. I love, love, love the pictures! But for some reason the simplicity of this one stands out. It’s a gorgeous ring that needs it very own picture to be appreciated! And again, who doesn’t love a soft black and white photo? I can’t wait…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition 5

I’m back! Real work life has been busy to say the least, but the greatest news ever is that I have been taking more photos than ever! This past weekend I had a couple coming out to the place to take some engagement pictures. SOOO who better to use as models to get in the photography-frame-of-mind than my beautiful, little sisters? Below may be one of my most favorite pictures I have ever taken, but I probably am partial due to my choice of models! Don’t worry, soon I will…
