11/29/09-Joyous Occasion

Candace and Jeremiah's wedding finally made it here. I took their Engagement/Family Portraits about a month ago. One their wedding day the cool front came in; it was so chilly out that everybody waited until the last minute to go outside to blow bubbles to send them off. I am glad; I was able to be part of their special day.

11/27/09 - Hill Country

We drove down to Hillsboro, TX to take family portraits. Lets just say working with children and pets can be very challenging, but at the same time very rewarding. We had a fun time capturing the portraits.


11/22/09 - Fairy Tale Wedding

Once upon a time there was a young girl named Stephanie who fell in love with a handsome man name Ben. They decided to have a wedding in November under the fall trees at the Wildwood Inn in Denton, TX. Stephanie and Ben's wedding was beautiful and intimate. And they live happily ever after. Thank you for allowing us to come and capture your day.


11/17/09 - Camera Shy

I took Joel's Newborn portraits a couple months back, and had the pleasure of coming back and taking family portraits. Joel was just not into the lights and attention of getting portraits made. Even with a camera shy infant I was able to capture some timeless portraits.

I meet Candace, Jeremiah and their son at the lake for engagement and family portraits. It was very important to them to have a father and son portrait; we decided on doing a fishing portrait because that was a favorite past time of theirs.

10-31-09 Lady in Red

What can I say? So far Stephanie's Bridals are my favorite. I know I should not be bias but she looks gorgeous in all of them. We just drove around and look for an area with nice fall colors, and took some indoors at her friends home.


10-24-09 Pretty in White

I love Texas Fall Weddings, the weather is so prefect and so was Crystal's and Shannon's ceremony. They wedded at the Northeast Wedding Chapel in Hurst, TX. Crystal was beaming with excitement and Shannon was cool and calm. I am so glad that they allowed me capture their joyous day.

9/30/09- Barefoot at the Lake

I meet Debra and Aaron at TCU for the first location of their Engagement Session. They both went to TCU and meet at TCU. The second location we went to a park on the lake in Fort Worth. Debra mention that they were going to have a barefoot wedding, and I thought that it would be fun to do some barefoot at the lake portraits. I had such a great time talking and photographing them and I am excited about the upcoming Bridals and Wedding next year.

9/30/09-Home Sweet Home

I meet up with Crystal and Shannon at their home in Fort Worth. They live in a beautiful neighborhood with trees and landscape all around their home.

9/12/09- Lucky Day

Hindu's believe that rain on your wedding day will abstain a strong marriage, because a wet knot is harder to untie. If rain is good luck as the Hindu believe then Erica and John will have very long marriage together.

In April, my church ask me to volunteer to be the Church Photographer, and I gracelessly agreed. I have enjoyed meeting the new church members and doing special photography assignments. We recently got a new Worship Team Leader, who is awesome, and they ask for some new photographs of the worship team in action.



5/30/09- Dance Recital

My nieces had a dance recital in McKinney, TX. There were multiple mini recitals, then a production of "Snow White", and then another multiple of mini recitals. My nieces both preformed a ballet and jazz routine. It was a long night but worth every tiring moment.

My Brother and Sister-n-law threw a Birthday Party for my very cute two year old nephew.

My husband and I decided at the start of 2009 that we would make a go at Wedding Photography. We have taken previous photographs of our family and friends' weddings and loved doing it. To get our name out there we posted a free wedding package listing on Craig's List, and was able to get a couple of responses before being flagged.

3/17/09- Sheri and Duffy

Sheri and Duffy responded to our free add on Craig's List. Come to find out we were neighbors at one time, and lived across the street from each other. They had a Irish Theme wedding, there colors were green and white, and wed on St. Patrick's Day. Sheri was a beaming bride; she had a smile on her face the entire day. It was a beautiful ceremony that took place at White Chapel Estates & Garden.


3/19/09 -Family Fishing Trip

My family had a week long fishing trip at Lake Somerville this year. It was the first time my parents, brothers, and I have been all together without the spouses and kids. We got up and were on shores of the lake ready to fish before sunrise and left right before sunset. It was peaceful, exciting, and fun. I hope we do it again next year.


4/4/09- Frankie & Jerry

We headed east to Springfield, TX to photograph Frankie & Jerry on their wedding day. The ceremony took place on their gorgeous land in front of a small lake. They were a lot of fun to photograph. The wind would die down just long enough for us to get so great portraits.

4/19/09- Jennifer & Bryan

We were honored with being able to celebrate with Jennifer & Bryan on their wedding day. The ceremony took place at The Dallas Arboretum at the top of a hill, overlooking a lake. They were such good spots going all over the garden and taking portraits at a dozen different spots.
