Spring

Spring sessions are in full swing.

WOW I have been busy you guys, but it has been wonderful and I am so grateful .

Spring in Texas is stunning. I am obsessed with all the flower fields .It is one of my FAVORITES. I live in the hill country off of lake Travis. SO spring is amazing, I get to see cute little Bambi deer laying in my front yard , blue bonnets , orange flowers , yellow flowers , SO MANY FLOWERS.

Spring is also my little dudes birthday. I can not believe how much he is growing , it was like in one day he decided he was going to copy every word we say and have his own little opinions!

seriously , just one day he this started. He has been stubborn to talk.

I got to be the photographer to capture all the sweet kiddos at his school this year , Oaklees first school photo taken by me! I can not wait to frame his school prints. I need more walls in home, I love hanging prints.

I got new backdrops in for all my spring newborn babies and I am so excited, This was one of them . I think its so cute!

I also still plan to paint some again but I have not quite figured out how and what materials I want to use this time!

Big things are happening here and I am so excited! Over on my private blog you can see how I have made it to where I am and how I plan to continue to grow and succeed !

I also share mommy motivations, books and podcasts that I am listening to .

Happy Spring ya`ll .

Lachandra and Kenneth , Villa Antonia

When Lachandra emailed after our consolation that they were going to have me as their photographer I jumped up and totally squealed with joy . I was so excited because after a year off from weddings I knew this was going to be such an amazing couple to capture. They are so kind , and you can just feel that they are in love. I love capturing the moments of true connection and love .

I started the day by capturing some details of flowers , dresses , shoes and Villa Antonia , this little gem is a hill country dream. It was breathtaking!

Spring Photography sessions and milk baths

Spring , I am ready for you! I think most of us are ready for some Texas warmth. This is much too cold! I am ready for flower field sessions, blue bonnet drives and some lake Travis fun. Anyone else just love the flowers that pop up that make our commutes to and from beautiful? I think every year I just talk and talk about all the flowers and the fields. Oh how I just LOVE them.

Until then we will take some sweet spring session milk baths where the babies can be warm and leave with soft baby skin from a fresh milk float!

Miss sweet Ella had her 6 month old session here with me. I cant believe it. It feels like yesterday I captured her sweet mama for her maternity photos right here in my back yard on Lake Travis. And it really , really feels like I captured her newborn images yesterday! I can not believe how much this little one has grown already! I am not sure I can get enough of her rolls , baby rolls are seriously the cutest! Baby rolls with flower toes , milk baths and big baby giggles are even sweeter!

Oh dear those little toes!

Hidden Hill Country Gem /Villa Antonia

When I first walked through the wedding venue Villa Antonia, the sweetest hidden hill country venue, I was just in aww of the beauty and all the stunning details. Every corner has character . I was even more excited that bride and groom, LaChandra and Kenneth, chose me to capture their special day. There was no doubt how much these two love each other, which makes my job easy!

Stunning , beautiful hill country venue that makes you feel like your in another country and a beautiful couple , in love. OH my HEART!

I could not wait to share a mini sneak peak and just say THANK YOU ! I am so grateful I was one chosen to capture their day and grateful for how amazing all the vendors were! I can not wait to share more .

Everyone here was just amazing all the way from the wedding coordinator to the the make- artist and florist. Her bridal bouquets were so dreamy, just wait till I share !

This image that I am sharing first I fell in love with. The romantic low lighting , blue velvet chairs and stunning outdoor lights bursting through the windows , and oh yes, I am a huge sucker for loving, happy candid images.

52 date nights , valentine gift !

These cute decks will come with 52 date night ideas , and cute packaging ready to gift!

Past clients use one of your images and create this cute gift for just $59 , add on any mini session for just $120

Each deck will be customized by me. I will have it wrapped and ready for you!

I decided I wanted to offer this as a gift because this year one of the things my husband and I are going to work on is going on dates. We have so many excuses about why we were not going on dates last year and I am sure ya`ll have the same! I know for a fact that my husband and I feel so much better, so much more connected when we take the time to go on a date. Even if its just going for a walk with a bottle of wine down by the lake! I feel like its so important to keep that fire we had when we were first dating . How much we would look forward to spending time with each other and going to dinner or the movies or mini golfing whatever!

So my hope is that I can create something cute that makes your both smile and feel special but continues through the year!

Spreading some love 2019!

Happy Halloween Texas !

Of course the weather was no good yesterday with a day of sunshine today , but no worries we had a lot of fun ! Oaklee was so excited to Trick or Treat this year! He was the cutest bambam I ever saw! I wish I took a picture of his matching bambam jacket for when the rain started, but we were out and about running from house to house dogging rain droplets!

I know , of course I would say he was the cutest , but seriously look at this little boy of mine!

What where your Halloween costumes ? Did ya`ll stick it out and trick or treat ?
