Summary of Work - May thru June

5/14/09- The Dallas World Aquarium

My husband and I went on a date to The Dallas World Aquarium. It was unique. I really like seeing the different fish from around the world. It was a great day and we got to see some new creatures.

5/17/09- Chapel Creek Fellowship Worship Team

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.

6/6/09 - Noah's Birthday

My Brother and Sister-n-law threw a Birthday Party for my very cute two year old nephew. The theme was the jungle; they hung moneys off the lights in the dining rooms, and had jungle animals all over the house. There were lots of activities, watercolor painting, masking making, and coloring pages. I had the pleasure of capturing him for his two old portrait.

6/13/09 -Engagements of Sara & Michael

We meet Sara and Michael at the Fort Worth Stockyards for their Engagement Session. They were such good models. We had a great time taking the portraits and getting to know them.

6/14/09- Wedding of Ashley & Chad

We headed out to Willow Lake Gardens in Weatherford, TX to capture Ashley & Chad on their special day. We were able to get some very colorful photographs and Ashley looked stunning.

6/21/09- Happy Father's Day

We went down to Somerville, TX and visited my parents for Father's Day. While there I took a portrait of them.

Summary of Work - January thru April

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.
