and baby makes four

Call me biased, but my friend makes one adorable pregnant lady. She’s just too darn cute. I knew Amanda wanted some maternity photos, but I also knew she didn’t want the run of the mill session either. Something relaxed, casual. A lifestyle session was just the ticket and it kept everything simple and laid back. Since this session Amanda has given birth to one incredibly cute, chubby, happy baby boy and we’re all just smitten over him.

Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.

Last October two of our dearest and closest friends got married. Nothing fancy. In front of immediate family they exchanged their vows and committed themselves to one another in a tiny Jim Wells county courthouse. Amanda asked me to be there simply because she wanted her best friend to partake in one of the most important days of her life. I was honored. I as well as my husband were the only nonfamily members there. So I toted my camera along and captured what I could for her and her soon to be husband.

Amanda + Isidro, we love you guys so much. So, so much.

Generations

One of my favorite sessions. This shoot was extremely sentimental to not only my clients, but to me as well. Jenny contacted me and asked me to photograph her kids with her grandparents belongings out on their old ranch. I practically shouted YES. But then I became a little nervous, I wanted everything to be perfect, because I grew up on this ranch too. Jenny’s grandparents, Momo and Popo, were like my grandparents. All of Jenny’s cousins were like my cousins. I really, really, wanted everything to be perfect. And it was. From the lighting to the family items we used, these images are some of my best and favorite to date.

It’s A Girl!

So I’m finally updating my blog with a new post after a year (yes, a year!) of neglecting it. Correction, not neglecting, a year of being caught up in other things and just letting the blog sit on the back burner for a while. Sorry about that.

But here is Alyssa’s gender reveal we shot in May and good grief is she one cute expecting mama. The definition of glowing.

One of my favorite sessions. The kind of session that makes me smile ear to ear while editing because the images are so stinkin’ cute. These adorable girls are always camera ready whenever I show up and really do keep me and their mama laughing the entire time. To their mom Zyda, thank you so much for supporting me from day one and trusting me to capture your girls. I’m already counting the days until Christmas for your family portraits!
