Beckham @ 3 Days ~ Pasadena Newborn Photographer/Travel – Waco, TX

I’m just going to state the obvious here, Bryce and Emily make beautiful baby girls!!! I met these sweet people a couple years ago when they hired me to photograph their second daughter, Parker. I was SO thrilled to be in Texas just 3 days after sweet Beckham made her appearance! I know its awful of me to do, but I asked them right after having Parker if they thought they’d have more and they said yes (and I was thrilled b/c I’ll never tire of photographing this sweet family), and I did it again…I asked if they might consider more now that sweet Beckham is here and they didn’t say “no” so, I’m officially holding out hope for more beautiful girls from these two!! :) Thanks for having me out to your home again, guys, it is such an honor to capture your family as it grows throughout the years. xo

Felicity @ 3 weeks ~ Orange County Newborn Photographer

I honestly don’t even know where to start, I could write a novel here with all I could/want to say. So as to not go on forever I’ll just say, it was truly my honor and privilege to photograph my friend Tracy’s miracle baby. This baby was prayed for by many (especially her parents and big sister) for about 10 years. I’ve watched my friend on this crazy journey to be blessed with the most wonderful surprise when least expected, God’s timing is so….unexpected sometimes. This sweet baby is such a perfect addition to this sweet family! Welcome to the world, Felicity Joanne, we’ve been waiting for you! xo

Sarah + Josh = Married! ~ Pasadena, CA Wedding Photographer ~ Travel, Waco, TX

My dear friend, Sarah married Josh at the end of July, this wedding was special for LOTS of reasons, among them (for me) – it was my last wedding to shoot while living in Waco (sniff). Their day was heartfelt and lovely to the last detail and I’m so honored to have been a part. Sarah and Josh, to say “I’m THRILLED for you” would be an understatement, so happy you two found each other and wishes for a lifetime of happiness to come. xo

Jonna + Josh = Married! ~ Waco Wedding Photographer/Travel ~ Dallas, TX

If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you’ve already heard me talk about how my husband and I have led a small group of Baylor college students in our home each week for the past 4 years. This experience has been a highlight of my life and an absolute honor and privilege to walk along side my 20ish “kids” as they have done their college experience. Josh has been around for the long haul, and when he started dating Jonna, she came too. I instantly adored her and loved watching she and Josh fall in love. When they asked me to shoot their wedding I was so humbled, what.a.treat. Their day was nothing short of lovely in every way and I’m so so thankful to have been a part. Jonna and Josh, thank you for doing life with our family and for letting us share in your joy as you two start your new life together, we love you and wish you all the best the world has to offer. xo

Sarah + Josh = Engaged! ~ Waco Engagement Photographer

I don’t use the word “deserve” very often. I think we often get good things that we don’t necessarily “deserve” and I think bad things happen to all of us that no one “deserves,” but I’m going to use that word here. My dear friend Sarah has been through a lot of heartache in her life, and I have watched her pick herself up and move forward day after day for the sake of her daughter and for honoring her late husband, Seth’s, memory. Sarah found love again in Josh and I am so happy for the two of them as they prepare to start a new life together at the end of the month. I love watching Sarah and Josh together, so happy and in love, and excited to say their “I dos” on July 27th, well deserved indeed. xo

Jana @ 27 weeks ~ Waco Maternity Photographer

When I moved to Texas 4 years ago, Jana was one of the first people I met. She greeted me with the most sincere, heart warming smile and I knew instantly I was a fan of hers. She was very pregnant with her second daughter at the time and I offered to shoot her newborn photos -a way of saying “thank you” for being nice to the new girl. Well, here we are 4 years later and as I’m leaving this special place my dear friend is pregnant with her third daughter and because of my move (T-20 days!) I won’t be here to photograph her newest sweet pea, so a maternity session it was! This time it was a thank you for her friendship over the past 4 years and for loving me and my family so well. Oh sweet Jana, how I will miss seeing you on a regular basis, you light up any room you walk into and I’m so honored to call you my friend. Sweet baby girl #3 is so blessed to have you for her mama ~ love you, friend. xo
