Jordyn & Micah | One Year Old

i can remember photographing Patricia’s maternity session like it was just a few weeks ago. but in reality, a year has gone by and these little loves were due for one year photos!

Patricia is so creative. She brought out a fruit picnic in lieu of a smash cake. This stole my heart!

thank you so so much for having me along to celebrate your milestones with you. i am infatuated with your precious little family and love the way stephen watches after his little sisters. you are all so fun and beautiful and it has been such an honor to witness your family’s growth! thank you a million times over for blessing me with the goodness of your heart and smiles.

be infinitely blessed

Nick | NYC Bound

the very first time i met him, he was just a teenager. and he knocked over his drink at our weekly Taco Tuesday lunch. i was annoyed (at best) by this kid.   And then he grew up into a young man. and then he had a role on the ALT stage for Over the Tavern. but… then he was in Equus. and he blew my mind.

shortly after graduating, nick moved away for college. i would literally count down the days until i would get to see him again. I traveled to ACU to see him in plays and each trip home, he’d make sure to call me. He became the little brother that i needed in my life and i… i cannot be more proud of the man that stands before me today.

As we speak, Nick is in NYC meeting and networking… and while there’s a part of me that misses him and wants him here where i can see him and hug him and love on him… there’s also a part of me that knows NYC is a much more deserving place for his talent and passion for theatre. Nick… you …

yeah.

and because nick is so generous, he allowed me to take a few shots of him in a more relaxed and casual environment… Waffle House.  I made this joke that these photos were “just for me” – meaning i wanted to take some non-posed photos… candids. But then we realized how creepy it sounded to keep saying “just for me”….  “these are for me”nick. i don’t have to tell you. cause you know. times ten.

now go get ‘em.
