Classen Family

Sometimes you have a family that you just connect with instantly. I knew right away after meeting the extended Classen family at their families’ ranch in New Braunfels that their group would be a blast to work with. Big group family sessions are often hectic because when you get that many people together (especially with young kids), it’s hard to maintain focus and still get natural looking smiles. This was not the case with the Classens! I truly had a great time working with the whole family. We walked around on their beautiful property and were even blessed with a few moments of sun after a mostly overcast and rainy day. Scroll down to see a sampling of the images we captured.

Spradlin Family

Thanks to my regular trips up to East Texas, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the Spradlin girls for several years. It shouldn’t be such a surprise to me to see how much they’ve grown because they are nearly exactly the same age as my two kiddos! But nonetheless, it still surprises me to see the kids I’ve photographed change and grow over the years.  This time was a little different because we actually had the whole family together! Always fun to work with, I had a great time walking around with the four of them and finding spots with pretty light around Synergy Park in Kilgore, Texas. Granted, the girls were freezing, but we made it work and it really was a lot of fun. Scroll down to see more.

Jackson is One!

Warning: this post contains the cutest little man and may actually cause elevated levels of happiness. How can it be that Jackson is already one? It seems like yesterday that I was taking his newborn photos. For this session, I met Jackson and his parents out at the always lovely Pearl in San Antonio. A little nervous at first, I drove through some nasty rain storms on the way in. Lucky for us, it cleared up just in time and we were able to use some of my favorite spots near the Stables away from the craziness of the farmers market. And let us all just take a minute to soak in how stinking cute he looked in all his little outfits — but, that JACKET! C’mon, can there be anything more adorable?!? Scroll down to see more…

Juliann Maternity

Juliann looked absolutely stunning in all of her maternity pictures. Spring sunset sessions can be so unpredictable. For weeks, we were looking for the perfect location with wildflowers; however, they just weren’t blooming enough when it was time for her session. I wasn’t sure if the weather would cooperate for us when we decided to take the photos at a secluded spot at the back of our property–but, it turned out to be a truly picturesque day. We had an absolutely immaculate sunset and no wind! 

Nick + Taylor Engagement

A recipe for the perfect Texas engagement session is as follows: take one ranch, add in a great couple (cowboy included), bring a horse, an awesome vintage couch and accentuate it all with an epic sunset. I was pretty excited to see all of these details from Taylor’s and Nick’s engagement session come together. They rocked it big time with most of their photos looking like they were ripped straight out of a magazine.

Rease is 4!

I was able to spend some time with this sweet little girl recently to capture some portraits commemorating her fourth birthday. Individual portrait sessions are often one of my favorite things—especially with younger kids.

Ronnie Joe + Sarah

Ronnie and Sarah were surrounded by a great group of family and friends for their wedding on February 10, 2018 at the Geronimo Oaks Wedding & Events venue in Seguin, Texas. With an outdoor ceremony in February, you never know what the weather may do; however, we were blessed with no rain (even if it was a bit cold). Ronnie and Sarah were troopers and toughed it out long enough for us to get some stunning portraits. As you scroll down through the day, you can see they were all smiles. From the ceremony, portraits, first dance and beyond, you can feel the joy in each image. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Beck and here’s to many more years of happiness!

Garth + Jessica

Garth and Jessica’s wedding at Branded T Ranch in Kendalia, Texas was a charming wedding to photograph. Take an easy going bride and groom, insert a fun wedding party, beautiful location and great vendors — and you have a recipe for the perfect day. Texas weather being what it is, we weren’t sure that an outdoor ceremony would be possible; however, the sun graced us with it’s presence long enough to make it all possible. Scroll down through the images below to see more of Mr. and Mrs Rodgers on their special day!

Cooper Turns One

I challenge you to find something more adorable than this little man in blue overalls with eyes to match! Cooper’s one year session was so great. He did wonderful with several different outfit changes–including the A&M jersey and football. Seriously, he’s too cute for words! Scroll down to see more.

2017 Year at a Glance

I can’t begin to express the gratitude I feel for having the ability to photograph amazing families, couples and individuals near my hometown. This was a busy year! From lifestyle newborn sessions to high school and college seniors, maternity sessions, anniversaries, weddings and beyond, I was able to work with hundreds of individuals across all ages. 

Jordan is 1!

I’ve been able to work with the best families! I was fortunate to work with Kayla for her maternity photos and now, Jordan is already turning one. He did so great for our session together. I rarely get such direct eye contact from the little ones under two. And, let’s talk about those eyes! Such a dreamy blue color. Scroll down to see some more of the adorable shots we captured.

Stanush Family

I had the pleasure of working with Kelsey a few years back to capture images to celebrate her graduation from college. This year, she asked if I could work with the whole family while they were together for the holidays. We met at one of my favorite spots after Thanksgiving for a quick walk around the park and we even managed to sneak a few smirks out of Mr. Stanush! So much fun. Scroll down to see more 🙂
