Cade – TTU Graduating Class of 2015

Such a proud moment, not only to see your child graduate high school, but then to go on to graduate from college as well.   Meet Cade, Texas Tech University graduate of 2015.   Granted before our session, I honestly had never met Cade before; however, I have know his parents for many years.    Gosh, I feel old when I say, these two were my teachers when I was in high school *cough* 26 years ago.   I am a grown adult, but I will tell ya, when I saw these two walk up to me before our session, I felt like that 17 year old kid again.   Two very special people, with one amazing son!   It  was wonderful getting the  chance to visit and catch up with them.     Congrats Cade for earning your degree!     You have a wonderful future ahead of you!

Laughter and Fun

THIS family is so much fun! We spent the entire morning laughing and playing.   When I brought the wagon out,  I fully intended for big brother to give little brother a ride around the park, but it ended up just the opposite which was hilarious. Despite little brother’s 100% efforts in pulling, he could barely make the wagon budge. Nonetheless, the two boys had a blast. Over the last two years, I have come to know the mom through my work at school. I have enjoyed coming into her classroom –  it’s an organized, peaceful place where all her students are working hard on their assignments. After talking with her a bit more deeply, I have found that we are both kindred spirits.  During the session, her husband was razzing her about just how overly organized she is at home (as well as in the classroom) and I just kept nodding my head in agreement. I could totally relate; I do the same thing as well. I have always said, “everything has it’s place.” I am a happier, calmer person when things are clean and organized. It was nice to know that I am not the only person with such crazy, possibly over exaggerated tendencies.


I am looking forward to our next session.  I have a feeling that next time, little brother will be able to pull his big brother around in circles all over the park!  🙂


Adored by All

This sweet baby girl has everyone in this family completely wrapped around her little finger.  Even when I got the two older siblings on the couch for some casual photos of them playing and singing to the baby, they both sat down and forgot all about me, taking turns stroking the top of her head, completely enamored.    This little angel was such a joy to work with, sleeping the majority of our session and only a few times waking up to see what we were doing.  I cannot wait for the next session when she is sitting up and I get to see how much she has grown.

[…] It really does amaze me every, single, time at how fast my milestone clients grow within the first year.   It was just a few months back that I first meet Miss K during her newborn session just a tiny, sweet baby wrapped in pink. […]

Graduation Time

It is that time of year again – graduation time! I was honored to be able to photograph this young man commemorating his senior year. We had so much fun during our session, even his sister got in on the action.   This senior guy has an amazing mom who is a very dedicated teacher for Round Rock ISD.    My own son had the privilege of having her for his 4th grade year and to this day says that she was one of his favorite teachers.   Congrats to you all!



Sweet Sisters

Such sweet sisters, and then in a blink of the eye, they are no longer newborns. Here is Miss J’s newborn session and then soon after, I got to photograph Miss E’s newborn session. I have been watching these two since they were born and I have a soft spot in my heart for them and their Mommy and Daddy. I get to meet so many wonderful families in my line of business, and I am such a sucker and tend to fall head over heals for my clients. It’s a bonding experience for me to watch a husband and wife transition into their roles of Mom and Dad.  I look forward to our next session to see these two sweet sister’s relationship grow!
