Little Auggie is such a love bug and was excited for his newborn shoot! After a couple cat naps his big blue eyes were wide open staring at Mama! The family dog, Ruthie, is just as cute and glad we got some photos of them together. Auggie got some pretty cool handmade blankets from family that we used. I also love the bear hat and booties Anne found on Etsy! So cute! I love getting to photograph new happy families!

I can’t get over that I have photographed this little munchkin (Caleb) since he was in his Mama’s tummy! I have had so many wonderful shoots with him, they are so photogenic and make my job so easy. This time around Caleb is 2 and wow the change in a year is astonishing! He came running up to me and hugged me, then held my hand randomly throughout the shoot. Such a sweetie. Krysta surprised her boyfriend, Jeremy, with photos for Father’s Day! He has never had any done with his little one, Peyton, who also just turned two! It was a great shoot, I’m so glad I can always capture these memories for them to always look back on! I absolutely love the colors they wore too!

Gage is 2 weeks old and the cutest little baby. I think he was going through a growth spurt or something because he would not stop eating that morning! I am in love with the nursery they put together and all the baby books they have to read to him. Erika asked in her baby shower invite that everyone bring a kids book. Such a clever idea and I’ve now stolen that idea and use it for a lot of my baby gifts. Watching new parents is so much fun and their unconditional love just radiates! Congrats to this cute family!

I’m obsessed! Blonde hair, blue eyes and dimples makes the perfect little Ava. Then giver her the cutest outfits, sunglasses, umbrella, bicyle and bubbles plus her super cute parents and her two year portraits are complete! In love!  I’ve been able to take photos of Ava a couple times now and it’s so fun to watch her grow!  She first was obsessed over the water fountains by us and kept saying, “water, water, water, water” then she found out I had bubbles (thank goodness they were hidden until the end) because then all she said was “bubbles, bubbles, bubbles, bubbles” in the cutest little toddler voice!  She was SO happy when Daddy was blowing them at her and Mama!

Taylor and I love to do fun things together! Like going on fun adventures and see new places! It’s so important to take time for each other in a marriage or relationship and just have fun. I had been wanting to do the Georgetown Loop forever and we finally found a time. I was happy to see they had a wine and hordovours train! Although it wasn’t small hordovours, we had crab bisque, hot wilted salad (way better than it sounds!!!), elk & risotto and a chocolate turtle cake! All paired with different glasses of wine. The ride was about two hours long and made stops by beautiful sights and we’d eat a course. It was a beautiful night and we had a great time getting away into our beautiful mountains! We took some fun photos of each other before we got on the train!  I haven’t taken any good ones since Taylor got the decal on his car!  P.S. I changed into jeans for the train, it gets chilly up there!!

My Mom & I had such an awesome time while in New Orleans for our destination wedding.  We added some extra days to check out the city.  We’re hardcore tourists that like to see as much as we can!  We walked 21.5 miles in 4.5 days!  We had a blast.  The weather was pretty rainy but that didn’t stop us!  We loved the designs of the buildings and all the flowers everywhere.  There was lots to do just walking around all the streets in New Orleans.  We took a street car sometimes to get us places.  2014-06-02_0002 2014-06-02_0004 2014-06-02_0003 2014-06-02_0006Beautiful Cathedral! 2014-06-02_0007 2014-06-02_0008 2014-06-02_00112014-06-02_00092014-06-02_00102014-06-02_0012 2014-06-02_0014 2014-06-02_0013

We also tried the famous Beignets at Cafe Due Monde!  Open 24/7 and they’re these white fluffy doughnut things.  Pretty good!  Make sure you have cash…cash only.  That’s a story. 2014-06-02_0022 2014-06-02_0024 2014-06-02_0023

Then we found all of these old, old cemeteries!  It’s crazy how they’re buried above ground because of sea level!  These cemeteries were everywhere!!!!  We loved walking around.  I think the oldest one we saw was 1825!  2014-06-02_0027 2014-06-02_0036 2014-06-02_0035 2014-06-02_0034 2014-06-02_0033 2014-06-02_0032 2014-06-02_0031 2014-06-02_0030 2014-06-02_0029 2014-06-02_0028

After that we found the Garden District with all these gorgeous houses!  We walked up and down the street and found a cute coffee shop. 2014-06-02_0037 2014-06-02_0042 2014-06-02_0041 2014-06-02_0040 2014-06-02_0039 2014-06-02_0038Our last day we went out to some plantations and took a tour!  They were so cool and we had fun in Oak Alley taking lots of photos.  We also finally had some Alligator for lunch and well as hushpuppies and catfish!  Everything was fried so it tasted like a chicken nugget to me haha but it was good!  What a wonderful trip!  Thanks Mama for everything!!!

Elizabeth and John are both Colorado natives who transplanted to Texas for John’s job.  That couldn’t stop them though from planning a long distance wedding and returning to Colorado to exchange vows in the state where they first fell in love.

The outdoor ceremony was Saturday, May 17, a time of year when Colorado weather can be so unpredictable.  In fact, Colorado had experienced a heavy wet snow just five days earlier.  The sun was a tease all day long, peeking in and out of the clouds, then as if on cue, an overcast sky gave way to shimmering sunlight just as the bride and her Dad made it down the winding pathway to her groom.  

The colors of the day were navy and gold, with beautiful bouquets of white hydrangeas and roses for the bride and her bridesmaids.   Even the ring the bride wore on her right hand which was gifted to her from her grandmother years ago, fit right in and also served as the “something blue” for her special day.

After a Rocky Mountain wedding, it’s on to London and Paris for their honeymoon before returning back to Texas as husband and wife.

Sweet Milania is 1 year old!  I met her Mom when I was getting married, she worked at the venue!  She then hired me for their maternity, newborn & 6 month photos.  I love getting to see them.  I can’t believe how pretty Milania is, those big blue eyes!  She is so sweet and did so good during photos.  Her Mama dresses her so cute and brings awesome props!  Can’t wait to see them next time!

2014-05-16_0001Kim is a great friend of mine and I’ve been along for the ride since the very beginning!  I couldn’t be more happy for them and this next chapter they’re starting in July!  They are so excited for their baby boy, Blake to arrive!  The nursery is set and they’re having and BabyBQ at the end of July so everyone can meet him and celebrate while some family is in town!  I think Layla is going to be a great big sister!    2014-05-16_0002 2014-05-14_0003 2014-05-16_0003 2014-05-16_0004 2014-05-16_00052014-05-16_0006 2014-05-16_0007 2014-05-16_0008 2014-05-16_0009 2014-05-16_0010 2014-05-16_0011 2014-05-16_00122014-05-16_0013 2014-05-16_0014 2014-05-16_0015

2014-05-20_0002.jpgJust last June I was taking their wedding photos and now they’re about to welcome a little girl into the world in July!  I am so excited for them!  They’re going to make the best parents, they’re really looking forward to a girl and knew it was a girl from the beginning!  Liz is glowing.  I love getting to follow my clients on their journey and become great friends.  Can’t wait to meet her soon!!  We took these photos in the same spot we took their wedding photos.  So fun reminiscing and what a great way to look back on your milestones.      2014-05-20_0005.jpg 2014-05-20_0004.jpg 2014-05-20_0003.jpg2014-05-20_0006.jpg
