Baby Bee J at 9 Months

I could just pinch her cheeks and rub her bald little head right now.  Baby J did wonderfully for her session.  She was so smiley and sweet during pictures, they were a breeze. I'm having a hard time believing that our next session will be the birthday cake session!

Someone asked me a while back...why do I photograph babies in just their diaper so much?  My answer went a little something like this...Babies have the softest most buttery skin.  Not getting them down to their skin is missing the opportunity to capture this quality about babies.  I remember cuddling with my tiny little boys, and rubbing their soft little baby backs and I am so happy that I have their pictures to remember this by.  They are so big now!

The Hedge Wedding available online

 This was an amazingly sweet wedding.  I wish Brian and Samantha the best and hope they love their images!   Click below to see the images from the wedding.

P.S. Did you know???? Tear jerker

When I photograph a couple and their wedding, they become so special to me.  They have a little place in my heart.  For every couple that I photograph their wedding, I offer them a free Newborn Baby Session for their first child.  Photographing their baby is like completing a circle... I was there in the beginning of their marriage and also at the beginning of their journey into parenthood.  Sniff, sniff, I am tearing up here...

Congratulations Brian and Samantha!

The wedding was so beautiful!  I'm so blessed to have met this sweet couple and photograph their most important day.  Such an honor!  I will very soon be posting a few sneak peeks from the wedding.  This is the announcement you will see on the main website:    Search galleries for Brian and Samantha.

Wedding Preparation

My photographer friend and I have a wedding tomorrow!  There is so much behind the scenes that a photographer does before the wedding, this list also serves me as a checklist...  charging about 24 hours of many many batteries, clearing all memory cards, packing bag, packing backup camera bag, tripod, make a "timeline" (in quotes, because we all know that a wedding can never really follow specific time), speaking with wedding coordinator of the the venue to go over details of where we can shoot, flash allowance, positioning, one last call to the Bride or Groom for last details...  all this and the wedding hasn't happened yet. 

I really get as excited for every wedding as my own wedding day, really.  Images coming soon.

Baby Bee S at 8 Months

In 2006, I photographed my friends getting married... and here is their sweet baby now.  She is so smiley and beautiful.  Here are some of my favorites from this group.

The Hedge Wedding Coming Soon

The Hedge wedding is coming soon!  On this site, you will see "teasers" of images from the wedding before they are actually posted on the website.   All images of the wedding will be posted within one month after the wedding.

This image is a sample of the custom wedding cards passed out at my weddings as a keepsake for the guest.  Wedding is this weekend!

Fish Market

On the way home from Tyler last week, I stopped by a spot I've been wanting to photograph for years.  It is off the road somewhere by Trinity, TX.  Just a hole in the wall fish market.  My oldest son has a vintage fishing themed bedroom and he would love to have these printed as huge posters.

taBbiE's beLLy

My sister's pregger belly.  I absolutely love the location where we were.  So urban, vintage, funky, bright, artsy...  The location is Mineola, TX... You know, just outside of Tyler.  My precious little niece is center stage in their world, and she loves it.  She will make an awesome big sister.  She is a 25 year old 3 year old :)  When I talk to her, it is like talking to one of my girlfriends.  Baby will be here around my birthday in April.

My first post!

I am going to give this blog thing a try.  I've seen other photographers' blogs and enjoy reading them to see what they are up to, newest images, etc.  I have to say the movie Julie/ Julia inspired me to just go for it.  After all, my mom will like to see what I'm up to...

So, I'll be working on this and my first images will be of my sister's maternity session.  As for now, it is time to help my son with his homework.
