The Beauty of Underwater Photography

I’m a big advocate of trying new things, but, of course, it’s never as easy to dive into something new.  Life tends to get in the way of your best laid plans – at least I know it definitely does for me!  Especially when you’re trying to run a business, be a full time mom,…

Ginger & Jamie: Cavaliers!

I absolutely love Cavaliers. They are one of the sweetest and most loyal breeds, and it doesn’t hurt that my furry brother and sister are Cavaliers too! Meet Ginger and Jamie. These two could not be more different in personality, but in cuteness they are pretty on par. Jamie is just two years old, and…

I’m Still Here!!

I have definitely been out of the loop in the last few months.  I haven’t posted to my blog or Facebook page.  Every time I look at it, I feel so guilty!  But, I have to keep reminding myself that there is a reason why I have not been very active lately…  I had a…

It’s that time of year in Texas when all the wildflowers are out.  You can see beautiful landscapes of blue, red, and yellow popping up for a few weeks every April.  If you’re a Texas native, you probably know that having your photo taken in the bluebonnets is a Texas tradition.  I know I have…

Well hello there!  First… Let me apologize for my blogging absence! The end of 2015 was crazy busy, as I’m sure yours was as well. 2015 was an amazing year for me, and I can’t believe how quickly it flew by. Things were slammed at the studio, family life was jam packed with Wilhelmina starting…

Olivia’s Newborn Session

Sweet Olivia came in recently for her newborn photography session.  She has one of the most adorable faces I’ve ever seen and quite a head of hair!  There isn’t much sweeter than a brand new baby.  I know I’ve said this before, but it’s amazing how tiny newborn babies can be.  It amazes me every…

Lacie & Kiefer

I love Shelties.  They are the perfect size dog.  Not too big and not too small.  Just like Cavaliers.  Of course, I am traditionally a big dog person, but I am always happy to make an exception for such sweet pups as Lacie and Kiefer.  These two came in with their mom, Karen, to have…

The Baby Plan Featuring Miss Penny

There is nothing more special than bringing a new family member home, both human and furry.  I love babies and puppies, and what is better than baby breath and puppy breath?  Off hand, I can’t think of anything sweeter than the smell of a brand new baby or the smell of a puppy.  I wonder why I decided…

A Little Something About Me – The Perfect Evening

It’s been a while since I did a post in my “A Little Something About Me” series, so I thought I should get to it and share a little something else about me.  If you read my “About” page on my site, you probably saw this: “MY IDEA OF THE PERFECT EVENING IS A BIG…
