"D" Family ~ Waco Family Photographer/Mini Session

Happy New Year, everyone! It was so nice to step away from the computer during the holidays but a new year is here and its back to work! I'm so thankful for all the people that hired me in 2016 and that have allowed me to capture important moments in their lives! I'm so excited for another year to be a photographer and look forward to all that is to come in 2017! Lets kick off this year of blogging with this cute fam, twins and a toddler -so busy and so fun!! xo

"L" Family ~ Waco Family Photographer

It was so fun meeting this (hilarious) family at their home for their shoot. I was laughing pretty much the whole time, they were so fun and their interactions with each other was about as good as it gets. Thanks for the fun time, y'all! xo

Erika + Garrett = Engaged! ~ Waco Engagement Photographer

I love when good people find each other and are so excited to get married, and that's exactly the case with these two. It was so fun to spend the afternoon on Garrett's family's beautiful ranch with he and Erika (and his parents...and a bridesmaid...it was fun to have an entourage during the shoot! :)) I'm SO excited for these two and for all that's in store! Congratulations Erika and Garrett! xo

B is 10! ~ Waco Portrait Photographer/Mini Session

Every year I do a mini session with my daughter in the month of November to commemorate her birthday and another year of life. This year was a big one, the big 1-0, double digits, a whole decade, etc..! She was looking forward to turning 10 for a long time, I on the other hand think it sounds really old and it came really fast (insert crying face)! My baby girl is 10, and she is the sweetest and most beautiful 10 year old I ever did see! Happy 10th birthday, Brennan Grace, I'm so thankful I get to be your mom! xo

Harp Family ~ Waco Family Photographer

Whew! Sorry for the blog lull, y'all! I've had some technical issues that were getting sorted out and now, I'm back in business! What better way to break a blog lull than with these cuties?! I adore this family, not only are they dear friends of mine but they're also pretty dang cute!

Audrae + Travis = Married! ~ Waco Wedding Photographer

Here is a peek into their lovely country wedding in central Texas, all the best you two! xo img_1947x-jpgweb2img_1939x-jpgweb

Love Makes A Family ~ Waco Family Photographer

I feel like I could write a novel here about these two but I'll try to keep it short and sweet. Kaley is the real deal, this gal's heart is one that makes you want to be a better person just by being in her presence. I've listened to a podcast she guest spoke on, I've read her blog, I've followed her story on Instagram, I've watched her on HGTV as her house was transformed by Chip and Jo, and one thing remains constant: her heart for people. This gal fights for kids who need a voice and she walks her talk and its really inspiring to be around her, I'm the lucky one that I got to capture this sweet time with her and her son. If you want to know more about foster parenting, adoption, how you can help, follow this gal (@ukulelekaley) and get ready to have your heart moved and changed. Thanks for being you, Kaley. xo img_1481xx-jpgweb

Diana + Kyle = Engaged! ~ Pasadena Photographer

I was THRILLED for my cousin when he texted me and told me about this cool new girl he met! Not too long thereafter I got to meet her and I could easily see why he was so smitten, she was GREAT! Thankfully not too long later he proposed and she said yes and now she's joining the family this summer -who hoo!! We are so excited to welcome Diana into the family and it was been so fun for my husband, daughter and myself to get to know her and to watch she and Kyle fall in love. Awwww... :) I'm sure it will be obvious from the photos below but lots of smooching was going on and these two can hardly wait for the big day!! Congrats Diana and Kyle, we're so happy you two found each other!!! xo IMG_6909x.jpgweb
