An Evening In Salado| Anniversary Portrait

There is nothing better than having clients who are willing to go all out for a shoot. Trekking through dust and water, sitting on the ground and rocks, balancing precariously on a bridge railing all out. This couple gave their all for this rockin' session, and it really shows in the end result! Of course, it probably helps that they are clearly completely, head over heels in love with each other. :)

{C+S} | Engagement Portrait

I'm not going to lie: Sometimes, immediately after a session, I worry about if I have captured what I intended to capture. I wonder if the smiles will be genuine, or the poses natural. But, with clients like these, I find those worries to be frivolous. As much as I would love to take full credit for the end result, I am only a small piece of what makes these photos some of my favorites so far. There is an abundance of love and good humor that defines them as a couple, and to have it in every frame really speaks to the strength of their relationship. I can only photograph what I see, after all. From my viewfinder, their future looks quite rosy.

Birthdays Are The Best! | Toddler Portrait

Okay, birthday-themed photo shoot would probably be more accurate, but this sweet little guy's day is so close I think it counts! And cake, pudding paint and presents certainly make for a convincing display. It was such a joy to bring a smile to his face with all the colors and new activities (Pudding? On paper? Madness!). It was messy, but aren't the activities where we get our hands dirty the ones that are the most fun? :)

Waiting On Baby

There is nothing more beautiful than an expectant mother, and nothing more thrilling for me than to be able to immortalize that beauty for a friend. Like any mother, she probably has the occasional worry. But, for our session, she was cool and collected, securely in the calm before the storm of doctors, diapers and Desitin. She is ready (as are we all!) to meet her sweet baby. It won't be too much longer now. Congratulations, my friend!
