I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful lady - Tracey! Isn't she gorgeous? While I was photographing her, I asked her if she had children - she told me she had grown children. I had to stop and be all rude "How old are you?" I couldn't believe this fresh face was old enough to have grown children!!

Tracey graduated with a Bachelors Of Science in Nursing. She is so kind, I know she is going to be a sweet and compassionate nurse!!

Congratulations Tracey! Wishing you all the best!!!

Ashlyn and her husband Marcus are very treasured clients of mine.  I met them before their wedding and we became great friends.  They are very loyal clients of mine.

I am so excited that Ashlyn is graduating as an RN this December!  I know she is going to an amazing and compassionate nurse.  She is such a sweetheart.  I am so proud of her.

We had our Collegiate Session on the VC campus.  Ashlyn was so happy to be finished and we had a sweet, wonderful time.

Thank you Ashlyn for choosing me to capture this proud chapter in your lives!!!

The month of December is a blur to me. Between my business and personal life I felt like I was on a roller coaster all month long.
As many of you already know, my beloved daughter Desiree delivered two beautiful baby boys on December 5, more than three months before their due date. She and her husband Tony named them Noah & Luke. They were teeny tiny at birth but miraculously healthy. They were placed in NICU where they remain today. They are gaining weight and getting stronger and stronger every day. I am in awe of God's goodness. I am over the moon in love with both of them.
I also had a lot of health issues at the end of 2019. I had knee surgery in October that hasn't fully healed to this day. I am still limping around. The inflammation around my knee caused a flare up on this cra...

Join me in congratulating Jesseca on her upcoming December graduation!! Jesseca will have a Bachelors Degree with a Major in Psychology and a Minor in Criminal Justice.

Jesseca wanted to include her adorable daughter Miley in her session. You can tell these two have a very special, loving bond.

I asked Jesseca what she wanted to do with her degrees and she replied that she didn't know as long as she was serving and helping people. That is so awesome. Good luck Jesseca - I wish you the very best.

They met at a Schroeder Hall when Sam was a senior and Ireland was a freshman. They dated for a couple of months and then both went their separate ways. But they never forgot one another.

A couple of years later, they finally made their way back to each other and this time they fell in love. They have been inseparable ever since. Sam was Ireland's first dance, first kiss and first love. On July 12 of this year, while on a family vacation in Johnson City, Sam led Ireland to the top of a wine bar in the Hill Country. He got down on one knee and proposed to Ireland with a beautiful, sparkly diamond ring. Of course Ireland said YES!!

I was so happy to be asked to photograph their engagement session. Ireland loves old rustic buildings and led us to a little community that I've never been to (an...

So proud to share photos from my session with this sweet family!   Of course, baby Freddie stole the show of every photo.   Freddie thought I was very fascinating, as you can see by these photos.   He was very calm throughout the session, but every single time - as soon as I would pull the camera down from my face, he would give me the biggest smile.  I think I caught one or two smiles on camera, the rest of the photos he was just studying me intently.

But he is precious and so are his parents.  Thank you Kylie for choosing me to capture your family memories!!!

I am probably going to over-share from this photo session. There were so many good ones, I wanted to just upload them all for you to see.

Meet Macyn - a young lady who as born to be in front of a camera. Macyn is very involved in pageants and needed some professional headshots to submit with applications. This little girl knows how to work some poses! She is so much fun to work with!! I did guide her into some poses, but most of the time, we just let her have fun. You can see why she is a little beauty queen!

Special thanks to her mom Lucy for bringing this little gem to me. We had a blast playing dress up with Macyn. We had too much fun and you are just a sweetheart.

I don't know why this young lady isn't a super model.  That long flowing hair!   Those long legs!  Those eyes!  That smile!   OMGeeeee!   I'd like to introduce you to Kendal, my beautiful Senior!!

Kendal is a quiet, elegant young lady.   I would pose her and be struck with her dazzling smile.   She just seamlessly moved from one post to another.  But while she was elegant and poised during our session, she's a force to be reckoned with at school.    She's a member of the varsity Vollyball and Track team.   She also coaches her little sister who also plays vollyball. 

When Kendal is not playing sports, she loves to hang out with her girlfriends.  A night watching a scary movie and having dinner at Whata...

Gabby & Tim went to school together.  They were in the same grade. They graduated together.   But NEVER MET.  Isn't that crazy?  After graduation, they each enrolled in Austin Community College where they finally crossed paths.   

Gabby naturally gravitated to Tim.  Tim is a super goofy guy who loves to make her laugh.  While dating, they found that they have a lot of the same interests - like they are both movie buffs and started going to the movies almost weekly.    Tim may be goofy but Gabby found out he has smooth dance moves so dancing is another thing they enjoy together.   All of these common interests created not just a spark and a friendship between them, but it caused them to fall in love.   Deeply in love.

Another thing they...
