Christeen

In my entire career, i have only approached three people at random and asked to photograph them. The very first time i saw Christeen, she was at a wedding i was photographing. I wanted to run over and beg her to let me photograph her. But i didn’t. And i left that day regretting it.

But the stars aligned! Our paths crossed again and again and again and again over the years. We’ve become friends. And have the best time together.  And here we are. Taking pics

i just LOVE her!

Christeen asked me to take some photos of her just because… and nothing could make me more excited.
Christeen is a hottie for sure. But i love this candid moment of her feeling shy!!! Christeen, dollface! You give me life. Or whatever it is the cool kids are saying these days. Thank you for bringing me so much joy over the years and being an instant source of happiness when i see you! Shine on, you beautiful diamond!

Stephanie. You are the coolest gal i know. i am so glad our paths crossed and that you have given me the opportunity to photograph you. i am thrilled to be on this journey with you and cannot be more excited to meet this baby!!!

Ryan and Hailey | Married

If you could tell me that every wedding would be as fun to photograph as Ryan and Hailey’s wedding was…. you could sign me up to do this every day of the week.

The whole day was spent laughing and celebrating their relationship and marriage. It was one of the most peaceful weddings i have ever photographed.

In case i haven’t mentioned it lately…. i LOVE me a first look!Ryan and Hailey. From the most sincere parts of my gratitude… thank you for sharing your memories with me. For being so kinda and gracious with your time and story and for welcoming me into your celebrations with open arms. You have truly blessed my career and life with your friendship.

Taylor and Berklee | Amarillo Wedding Photographer

I have photographed over 250 weddings in my career. And while each one holds a special place in my heart and memories, there are a few here and there that will really hold a unique sentiment for me. For Taylor and Berklee, it had a lot to do with the fact that i had photographed her 7 years ago and had been smitten with her since then.

Taylor and Berklee had a sweet and intimate afternoon wedding celebration. As expected, they spent the entire time laughing together.

i just love this girl. and a first look. i looooove a first look!

Taylor and Berklee. Knowing you has been such a joy and photographing you through the years is a true honor. Your new life together is a great cause for celebration and i am honored to have been a part of your love story! Thank you for choosing me

Emma | Three Months

Please excuse my Texan. but y’allllllll….. we put a baby in a milk bath!

and surprisingly lived to tell the tale.

Emma is a complete doll.  I have yet to share her sweet birth story, but i couldn’t wait to post these. I’ve only ever done milk baths with big humans. So when her mom, Leslyn and I, were tossing around ideas for her three month photos…. we had this brilliant idea. Dad was there too. Mostly waiting to laugh at us and say, “i told you so” and/or catch a slippery baby.

But …. if this isn’t the cutest dang thing…. then i don’t know what is.

oh. phew! she loves it. she really loves itReally. Emma is the perfect way to spend an evening. I’ve come over just to hold her. Squeeze her. and coo over her. thank you for freely sharing her with me and for always being so supportive and encouraging and the best kind of humans to have in your life.

be infinitely blessed
