The bonds of friendship and brotherhood (Nick was in Theta Xi) in college are unbreakable.  You meet each other during the best season in life where everyone is growing into the adults they want to be.  We step out of our parent’s home, move away from our family and create a new one.  And no […]

Little Miss Olivia | A St. Louis Newborn Lifestyle Session

A tap on the shoulder, full of anticipation, Byron turned around to see his beautiful bride for the first time.  His look of surprise quickly turned to awe, washed over by a sense of how lucky he feels to be standing in front of the love of his life, on his wedding day.  As he […]

Byron & Lauren | A Classic Chapel Ana Villa Wedding

She was in utter shock!  How did he do this without me noticing?  How did he plan such a beautiful set up, hire a photographer, and plan a weekend away for us in Fort Worth?   These were some of the questions that rolled through Blythe’s mind after a whirlwind proposal in Fort Worth.  Josh […]

Josh & Blythe | A Fort Worth Surprise Proposal

I love how social media allows you to befriend your clients before you ever meet them in person.  🙂  Tyler, Kristen and I met via FaceTime video chat while they were wrapping up their last semester at Oklahoma University.  I knew right away that I wanted to be their photographer.  They are just the sweetest […]

Tyler & Kristen | A Dallas Engagement Session

Lance & Lauren | A Springs – The Lodge Wedding in Aubrey, TX

It’s amazing how the friendships you created ten years ago reemerge into your life down the road.  When Nick and I first moved to Texas, we both worked in Irving, TX supporting the Citi group corporate wellness account.  We were both so lucky to be a part of this team of ten amazing health professionals.  […]

Amanda & Jana | An Ennis Texas Bluebonnet Engagement Session

I think Jim Croce said it best… “If I could save time in a bottle The first thing that I’d like to do  Is to save every day ‘Til eternity passes away  Just to spend them with you”   Those lyrics kept popping up in my head as I edited this sweet family of three’s […]

Conkle Family | An Arbor Hills Family Session

One of my favorite things about this session is that it was Nick’s first solo Senior Portrait session.  Our roles reversed today and I got to play with the kids at the park while Nick did  all the work.  Can I get an AMEN!?!?  LOL!  Isaac is one of Nick’s best friend’s kiddos, so it […]
