Seriously. photographing this family for the last 5 years has been such a blast. They have all claimed very dear spots in my heart and i am so happy to be along for the ride.

the Pigg Family | Amarillo Family Photographer

i don’t always agree to photograph multi-family sessions because it’s intimidating. Luckily when i do… they’re awesome peeps. like the Pigg family here. we met last month in the last few bits of fall loveliness and updated their family portrait since they have added new family members of the daughter-in-law and squishy mini human sort.the grandkids!this little girl has more fashion sense than i do.i wish all families were as funny, amusing, hip and entertaining as you all were! thank you for asking me to do this for you! i had such a great afternoon and have enjoyed knowing you all for the last couple of years!

Baby Koulter | Amarillo Birth Photographer

i met with Ross and Ellyn  the night before their scheduled delivery. We laughed and giggled about the woes of pregnancy as Ross shifted uncomfortably in his seat. But, there was no denying the excitement that could be felt as they both spoke of brining their baby home. I am so honored to have been there to share in the first few hours of this little boy’s life.

this baby’s lips are the cutest.thing.ever.Ross and Ellyn – thank you for allowing me to witness your little miracle. You are going to be outstanding parents and i cannot wait to see how your family grows!

Evan & Bailey

A few years ago, this quiet young lady came to help me with editing and computer work. She is one of the most creative and talented young artists that i know.  She is an art student in dallas now and has a wonderful eye for fashion photography.   I really enjoyed getting to know Bailey and love watching her create and grow as an artist. When it came time for her senior prom, i suggested that one of my sweet ALT Academy students ask her to prom.  Evan is one of my most favorite people on the planet. He is charming and talented and sweet.  It really is no surprise that they get along so well and that their prom date has lasted almost two years!  the rest, as you can say, is history.

when bailey contacted me last month to photograph them while she was home for the holiday, i was nervous. but couldn’t turn down the opportunity.

Bailey… seriously… i can hear your sweet little laugh every time i look at this photo.one thing i noticed about these two is their playfullness. Bailey tends to be serious while Evan is spontaneous. It’s a perfect symmetry.too sweet.evan and bailey – you both are so special to me. i am so glad you found homes with one another. you represent such a great model of understanding, love, and cooperation in a relationship and i am so excited to see what your futures hold. thank you for allowing me to not only have “couple credit”  but now also “photo credit”

be infinitely blessed

Daniel and Jerica | Midland Wedding Photographer

There really are no adequate words i could write here that could possibly give you even a glimpse of how amazing Daniel and Jerica and their families are. I  have never felt more at home, welcomed, and included as i was on their wedding day.  Not only do Daniel and Jerica share this crazy love for one another, but they share it with their family and friends. So what you get on their wedding day is a room full of people are are just in love with them and their marriage as they are with one another.

There’s a small part of me that wants to share all the wonderful emails and messages i get from Jerica. Every time she speaks of Daniel, or her family, or their wedding day you can just FEEL the love and committment she makes to everything.  She is one of the most caring women i have ever known and i look forward to seeing this smile for a lifetime to come!this group. so much fun. and laughter. and jokes. LOVE ITas the reception began to end and their family and friends made their way downstairs, Daniel and Jerica stayed in the room for one last dance as a couple. I have never seen anyone do this before and tears filled my eyes as they took that special moment to really let the excitement and happiness of the day settle within.Daniel and Jerica… i am so soooo sooooo honored. thank you. thank you for being so wonderful to each other. and for allowing me the opportunity to experience a wedding day as lovely as yours.

Enjoy your slideshow
