We took a road trip this summer as a family from Waco, Tx all the way to Milwaukee, Wi. It was such a long trip but we had so much fun as a family! We got to stop in Chicago on the way for a few hours and see the bean! Amelia loved it! We did NOT love the price to park! Sheesh, it was crazy! I am not cut out for big city life at all, but I think Hank would thrive in one! Opposites really do attract! But we still had a ton of fun there and found a great vegan restaurant.

Hank was in a wedding in Milwaukee, so while Amelia and I waited for him to take all the pictures we explored the most beautiful neighborhood and found this house with the best garden and flowers I have seen! This is my dream for my house someday!!!

Milwaukee is so beautiful and the weather beats our Texas heat any day! We stayed in the cutest Airbnb over some sweet shops! Amelia and I loved exploring and trying out different cafes and indian restaurants! Long road trips can take a lot out of you but overall it was such a fun trip and Amelia did so good! Can’t wait to plan our next trip!

This session will tug on your heart strings! This sweet family has been fostering Gavin  and I got to document and witness him officially becoming legally apart of their family forever! I loved all the emotion and support this family has for one another. And of course after you join a family you have a sweet party at the water park because its his favorite! 

brian & lauren: wedding

I LOVED being apart of Brian and Lauren's special day! Being able to capture a bride and groom's wedding day still gives me butterflies. Lauren had such a clear vision vision of what she wanted her day to be and she nailed it! I loved all of her sweet details that helped her guests focus on her and Brian's love for each other! So happy for their marriage and to see their love grow! Congratulations Brian and Lauren and best wishes on your new life together! 

kara & barrett: wedding film

Still swooning over this sweet and simple wedding ceremony. I had the privilege to film this special day and capture a few before photographs for some of my dear friends Kara and Barrett. This wedding was about their love for God and their love for each other. My favorite part was how they honored one another by washing one another's feet at the very beginning of the ceremony. Such a humbling beginning to a marriage. I still am in awe of this sweet union and cannot wait to see their love blossom and grow! 

Congratulations Barrett and Kara again on your beautiful day and your beautiful marriage!

"It's bigger than clothes for me."

Rachel's heart and reason behind selling Lularoe is so powerful! Every goal she has for her business and for her life is always focused on impacting those around her. She was such a joy to work with and I love how genuinely passionate she is about what she does! 

barrett & kara: engagement video

Magic! This session was pure magic! They are such a great match it was so easy to capture their love and excitement! I have known Kara for quite some time and am so excited to see her getting married and to be apart of capturing their special day!  Also engagement videos should be a normal thing! The great thing about this shoot was they were getting their engagement pictures done at the same time and the photographer and I got to work together and bounce some cool ideas during our time with this couple! You get two amazing things with one session, amazing pictures to frame and also a video to watch many years down the road!

This shoot has me swooning!! I had the pleasure of capturing the sweet romance between one of my dearest friends and her fiancé! They are truly made for each other! And it makes my job so easy! They had me laughing so hard during the entire shoot my cheeks hurt by the end! I LOVE capturing love! Congratulations to the happy couple and I cannot wait for your wedding!

Sweet little Lana's newborn home session was so sweet! Home sessions are one of my favorites because its very natural and easy going. Everyone is comfortable and relaxed especially baby which makes the shoot a lot smoother with a happy little one! Taking her pictures was so neat because I have known her mother ,Mikala, my whole life. Being able to share this sweet moment in time of us becoming mothers so close together and being able to share the good, bad, and exhausting parts of motherhood has been so incredible. I am so blessed to capture these special moments in peoples life and it makes it sweeter when they are your friends.
