Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 30

Edition 30: December 25, 2015

Merry Christmas folks! Yes, I’m a day late. But let’s pretend it’s Christmas morning again! Finally, I can post some of my favorite pictures I have ever taken! Earlier this month, I had several Christmas pictures shoots. But because I didn’t want to take the surprise away from the people receiving the Christmas cards, I refused to post any until after Christmas. Possibly over-thinking this, but ah well. Anyhow, I had the privilege and the pleasure of taking pictures of the Crisp family for the second year in a row.…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 29

Edition 29: November 27, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to take engagement pictures for this wonderful couple, Eric and Kelsey. They were so much fun! Even Ellie got in on the action acting as our guard and my assistant, obviously. With all of the green grass around, it is hard to believe this picture was taken in November! This had to be a quick post, about to head off on a road trip to Louisiana. Let’s pray that my Aggies BTHO lsu tomorrow. Fingers and toes crossed!

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 26

Edition 26: October 30, 2015

I don’t know a better way to close out the month than with a picture of such a great, beautiful couple. Amanda, a friend of mine since childhood, met Josh on our city league softball team, Cleats & Cleavage, this past year. Ever since we’ve known this would come. So excited I could be apart of this special time in their lives!

Happy Birthday Mila!

Mila's 1st Birthday

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…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 24

Edition 24: October 16, 2015

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.

Family at Quiet Hill Ranch

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

Sunset at Quiet Hill Ranch

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

May Favorites feat image

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…


Beauty, Beauty On the Wall

Juxtaposition is precisely how to describe my life sometimes. Here, on Tuesday,ย 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 hasย just, lately, it’s felt…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 12

Edition 12: October 31, 2014

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…
