Mother’s Day is just a few days away, so this post seems very timely 🙂  Christine is expecting her first baby in just a couple short months, and I could not be more excited for this gorgeous mama-to-be!  Welcome to the club, C!

I love love love photographing high school seniors, especially when they are as cool as this girl!  Anais is an amazing athlete and was accepted to UNT and will be throwing for their team!  So not only is she super talented, she’s absolutely gorgeous too (that hair <3 <3 <3)

Congrats Anais – I am so excited for you!

What a fun evening spent with these two adorable kiddos!  I had a blast chasing them around in this beautiful field full of bluebonnets.  Spring is gorgeous here in Texas, isn’t it?

Courtney and Travis met through mutual friends, and their love story is one of a kind!  On their first date, they were pulled over on the way to the restaurant – while Travis was worried about getting a ticket, Courtney, being the jokester, thought it was hilarious and took a picture of them and even tried to high-five the cop 😉
Travis proposed to Courtney on a beautiful hillside in Fredericksburg overlooking the gorgeous scenery. As Courtney dreamed out loud about wanting to build a house right where they stood, she turned to look at Travis and he was holding her ring!  It was there that he asked her to be his bride.
Courtney and Travis were married at Twisted Ranch in an intimate chapel ceremony. They utilized all areas of the gorgeous property to entertain their guests, from a photo booth in the jail, to a candy/snack bar at the general store. We even got a visit from the resident buffalos!
Courtney and Travis, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your special day!

A girl who likes to laugh this much is OK is my book!  I had a blast shooting Courtney’s bridal portraits at her venue, Twisted Ranch in Oatmeal, Tx. It was a chilly day, but she was a trooper and could not have looked more gorgeous in her stunning fitted dress.

 

 

When Kayla Burgett of Makeup by Kayla Nichole suggested the state capitol as the location for a styled bridal session, I couldn’t help but say yes! The Texas state capitol is an absolutely beautiful building, and the night we shot this session was just perfect.  Thanks to Melange Bridal for loaning this stunning dress!

Before moving out to Texas, I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing styled bridal shoot in Colorado Springs. There was anything from a vintage inspired vignette to a steampunk themed vignette 😉   Here are some of my favorites from the day

There are few things sweeter than seeing a mother with her children, and Natalie and her sweet brood were no exception. Natalie wanted a mommy and me session with all 4 of her adorable kiddos. I hope she is able to cherish these portraits for years to come 🙂

I’m often reminded of just how fast life’s little moments pass us by. For us moms, we often focus on pictures of our kids, and rarely want to be in the photos ourselves. I personally want to make it a goal to be in more photos with my kids in this precious time in their lives – I know I will treasure the memories years to come, as I’m sure they will also! If you are on the fence about a mommy and me session, let me encourage you to do it!  You’ll be glad you did 🙂
