365 Project | Week 3

Made it to week 3! Yay!

I actually missed a few days since I was traveling from Mont Belvieu - Addison - Greenville - Mont B. That's ok though! I went ahead and added an extra pic for day 12 just because he's so darn cute! Day 13 isn't candid but I did his 5 month photos that day. Taking his monthly photos by myself wears me out! My family might kill me for posting our Thanksgiving pic but it was too funny to pass up. It was a rainy holiday this year, but so glad we got to spend it with our crazy people!




Bed head. We're starting to practice on sitting up!

Happy Thanksgiving.

365 Project | Week 2

Week 2 of the 365 Project! I am loving this project more and more each day. The only bad thing is is that it makes me want to purchase a macro lens so bad for detail shots! Maybe one day ;)... I did miss day 11 due to cleaning the house and having an engagement session that afternoon. I'm just proud I made it this far lol! Enjoy! XOXO


He tried bananas for the first time and he approved!


It was a rainy day and we were stuck inside.


He woke up at 9:45 am a happy boy! I was a happy Momma! :)




Multitasking. This is why it takes me forever to get things done.. and why my coffee gets cold. ;)


Morning snuggles.

2016 KNP Senior Model Team | Part 1

I'm so happy I finally get to show off the 2016 KNP Senior Model Team shoot!

We were supposed to have the photo shoot back in October but it got rained out (story of every Southeast Texas photographer's life right now...). Thank the Lord the sun was shining and it was a beautiful day when we rescheduled for November! We started the day at Bridgette's makeup studio, which is amazing by the way. I had cookies made by Baking Up A Storm that said "2016" and "Senior" on them. I have to admit that I ate more than one... they were so good!! Thanks Emily!

We decided to go with more of a fall look for their makeup and used a darker lip/smokey eye. Bridgette never disappoints! She did a different look on each girl and their makeup was flawless! It's always a good time working with Makeup By Bridgette Gil :).

The girls were so much fun to work with! Here are some of my favorites from part 1 of the photo shoot... come back for part 2!

Makeup: Makeup By Bridgette Gil

Venue: The Laurels  -- Thanks Lauren for allowing us to shoot at your venue!

Aerial & Carver | Palestine, TX wedding

When I first spoke with Aerial about her wedding and was told the venue was Elmwood Gardens, I was ecstatic! I've only seen pictures and I knew it was just right up my alley. When I arrived it was everything and MORE! It was the perfect day for a fall wedding in East Texas. There were many sweet moments throughout the day, but my favorite was their First Look. Carver turned around and immediately was brought to tears. I'm pretty sure we all melted. After the first look, we took photos of the bridal party and family. The bridesmaids looked gorgeous in their plum and lavender dresses. The colors really popped! Once the group pictures were done, Aerial asked me if it would be ok if we snuck out of the reception later to take a few photos under the chandeliers... ummm OF COURSE! My kind of bride! ;)

7 years ago they became high school sweethearts. On October 16th, they became husband and wife. From the plum colors to the amazing weather, I'd say Aerial & Carver's day couldn't have gone any better. Thank you for having me photograph your wedding and I'm excited to share some of my favorites. It was a beautiful day! XOXO


Aerial's little sister was the best flower girl!

Such a special moment between the groom and bride during their First Look.

Blooper! haha! The bees were everywhere! Carver stayed calm while we were freaking out!

Can't you just feel the LOVE the groom has for his bride? Great shot of Carver by my assistant, Kayleigh.


2016 KNP Senior Model | Michaela

Last but not least is Michaela! She is a girl who loves to laugh and is always there for her close friends to cheer up. Michaela is a senior at Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School. She is involved in the Pink Club, Anchor Club, WyldLife, and is a member of the Kelly Dance Force. In her free time she likes to "eno" with her close friends at the park. If you are like me then you probably thought what the heck is "eno"... it's a portable hammock.  Now I want to "eno" lol! I'm so glad this sweet girl chose to be on the KNP Senior Model Team!
