Honest. Raw. Legit.
Country girl....which means I love to feel the mud between my toes on a warm summer day....
Loved to meet you!
I LOVE capturing romance, turning engagement sessions into a fun date, and enhancing chemistry with my couples.
I mainly specialize in working with couples and weddings--and love seeing marriages succeed. Be sure to check out my Monday Marriage Matters blog posts. :)
My 2nd specialty is working with highschool senior girls. And my passion is to see one girl after another see the true beauty within once seeing their images.
Inspired by The Creator and His nature all around me. Inspired to impress. Inspired to inspire others.
I have been told that I am known for drawing one into the artistry of the moment, fluidly arresting an instant in time, while enabling the audience to continue the moment in its mind's eye. There's a magical impression left on one's soul after viewing such photography, as it becomes visual food for the soul..... poetry in motion.

I still have not taken my daughter’s official 2 year pics, but the weather was so nice yesterday I asked if she’d like to go take some pics in the backyard. She likes the camera.I was able to capture all of her personality in about 5 minutes. She was silly, serious, and showing who was really in charge…you will see which one shows that at the end.
But, I hope to have her official 2 year pics taken in the next week, I just wanted to wait for all the fall colors. Here is my bright eyed little 26 month old!
There’s just something about the vibe a bride gives off when she is doing her final make-up touches before walking down the aisle…… these are some of the most emotional shots, the ear rings were her grandma’s which had passed a week before her wedding day. Kate wore them proudly as something “old” to wear, and was able to feel as if she was still right there with her….
How bout this eye candy?! Right when I looked at my screen on my camera after this shot I knew it was the fav of the day…..so dreamy! Get ready for more images like these from my Austin, Texas wedding on Lake Travis!!
It’s funny how many seniors in high school actually don’t get their pics taken, and then a year later decide…or mom decides, you need some updated pics. Well, the past two single ladies I had taken pics of, were in somewhat of that category. I was one of those crazy seniors that had my pics taken the summer right before my senior year began…..with one of those lovely 2001 signs I got to stand by in a studio….Yuck!
Well, everyone if you want to meet a TRUE southern bell–Kirsty is your gal. I just can’t get enough of her when I am with her, she is full of life and truly is going somewhere. She loves the Lord with all her heart, and has chosen to use her singing ability to glorify Him as well.
Please leave some love for this gorgeous lady!
The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams.
~ Elizabeth Gilbert
Is it the inability, or is it the lack of wanting to? The fear that ties us down, the judgement that may be placed upon us. The thought of failing. But, honestly…..in the big picture, if you let fear, judgement, thoughts control you–where will you get in life? The inability to let go of the reins, is the reason for blighted dreams…or in other words–ruined, frustrated, or destroyed dreams. How many times do you hear of someones life that was once “going” somewhere, and then their dreams were shattered, destroyed due to some sort of lack of trust. I’ll go a little deeper….
“Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 This was my first memory verse in college, and I have never looked back, but forward with my trust in God. If we are blocking out God, then who will we trust? The world will fail us, because that is our nature, but God stands true and faithful always.
This picture seriously got me that inspired, and that is what art is suppose to do. It truly speaks to me, it truly inspires me to dream and to trust….
