Caitlyn + Preston

Caitlyn and I went to college together at Houston Baptist University. We only had one class together: a speech minimester. and it was the greatest class ever. 2 weeks, all day, lots of public speaking. Everyone in that class became friends, even though we were all over the spectrum as far as class, major, friend groups. 🙂 I was so glad when she called me about engagement photos! After also meeting at HBU and dating a few years, he proposed on Christmas. They were eager to get one step in the wedding planning process complete.

She initially told me they weren’t super lovey-dovey, but I beg to differ. 🙂

Congrats Caitlyn and Preston! Enjoy this season, it’s extra special. 🙂

Family Shoot in Small Town Main Street

I absolutely love this family. She’s been letting me take their family and milestone pictures for a few years now. It’s so fun to watch the change in family dynamics as the kids have grown. 🙂 Not only are they stellar clients, but they’re also great friends. I’m so thankful to have them be part of mine and my kid’s lives.

Last year we took some great images in a beautiful sunlit park full of trees, so this year we wanted to change things up a bit. Downtown Richmond is hopping with photographers, especially this time of year, but I’ve only shot there a handful of times. I love the neutral colors of the brick walls and concrete contrasting with the sun flowing in through the big, mature trees. Plus, these kids are so photogenic, even when they’re not having this “photoshoot thing”.

Family Maternity Session

Chelsea initially contacted me to schedule a newborn session for her little arrival in April…As we were chatting she mentioned wanting maternity pictures with the family too! Let me tell you, if I looked as good as Chelsea does at 8 months pregnant I’d be signing up for tons of maternity pictures too! She looked amazing was so full of energy! She was up for anything! I’m a little bit jealous…haha! Mr. Harrison was not the biggest fan of pictures but once we let him play with some sticks he was happy. Little Molly was super super sweet though, you can tell she just adores her mama.

I can’t wait to share their newborn session when Baby Margaret gets here!

Aldana Family

Sweet Abbey and her family are good friends of ours (it helps that our husbands are related haha) We get along very well and our kids are only a few months apart so it makes for some very exhausting playdates…
This family is so easy to photograph. You can really see the love between Jonathan and Abbey when they look at each other. I had to tell them to calm down when I asked them to kiss! “WHOA! That’s a different kind of photo session, okay?” Their little boy is a big ham, especially when you bring up superheroes! Baby Ruby is the sweetest little thing, she smiled almost the whole session and never once cried! Hallelujah!

Titcomb Family : : “Fall” Begins!

I met the Titcombs when their older daughter started taking piano lessons from me. She had been coming a few months when we discovered we had already met once at church! I was leading worship at the church Corey’s parents attend and I didn’t even realize they were the same people! Haha, small world. ☺️
I love the location of this photoshoot – the sun is setting perfectly between the trees. Little Sister was not having the posed pictures but after we got her dancing and chasing Big Sister, she warmed up to the idea of giving me a few smiles.

Luka Antonio : : Two Years Old

I have always liked photography -even when I was a kid I would set up my camera on a tripod and try to take 1998 style selfies. But I never had much inspiration….until this guy was born.
I can’t believe he’s already turning two. I’ll blink and it will be 22…..and he will still be living at home because he’ll never leave me. (just kidding, I’m kicking that kid out on graduation day)
