Last Summer, Vivi and I went on an adventure to see my dear friend Sarah and 5 or her 6 kiddos in Alaska! Sarah and her family are having an adventure living in Kenai, Alaska and it was such a treat to get out of the August Texas heat and spend the week before school started outside! I haven’t posted persona photos in a while – so indulge me! We saw… Keep Reading
More Palm Springs for your viewing pleasure – because this place is just the absolute best. While at Alt, I squeezed in a few headshot sessions for some other attendees. how could you even think about resisting the bright colors and cool vibe at the Saguaro? Headshots below – and a few other favorite images from the hotel. I can’t WAIT to return – again and again!
On the last night of Alt this past February, a few of my blogger friends and I were hanging out on the porch of the conference room at the Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs when I noticed an impromptu iPhone photo shoot happening. Fully embracing my word of the year (it was gumption) and completely ignoring the quickly disappearing sun, I offered to shoot! The model is Reachel Bagley from Cardigan… Keep Reading
It’s been a while (like a long while) since I shot these images of my beautiful friend, Candice – but they are some of my favorite portraits ever. Candice makes life a party – and she has every reason in the book (literally) to be just the opposite. If you were to flip to the author bio of Candice’s just published book The Con Man’s Daughter, you might recognize this… Keep Reading
Oh the heartache when dear friends move away — and the delight when they come back to visit. Caitlin and her crew recently relocated to Cali and stopped through San Antonio on their way to a destination wedding. While dad was in meetings, I practically begged Caitlin to come by the studio for some quick pictures of her and the boys. It’s hard to let go of a friend and… Keep Reading
Watching littles ones from the womb to their first birthdays (and beyond!) is such a special part of this job — and I think it might actually be cheating when it’s a friend — but still! Isn’t that the most adorable shirt?? A surprise piñata was the hit for the “big” kids! I think Theo’s beautiful and simple first birthday was perfect!
When your PBFF (photographer bff) who happens to be an awesome food photographer calls you and invites you to tag along on a shoot at your favorite bakery, there is only one answer! Misha and I had such a great time photographing one of San Antonio’s most amazing bakeries – and you better believe that we taste tested as we went along!
I adore peonies. I have since 2002 when I came across a bouquet of them in the grocery store. The sweet, heady smell and voluminous petals – not too fussy and not too wild. They are one of my favorite things. Sometimes it’s nice to shoot something that stays perfectly still and doesn’t grimace when I make bad jokes…
It takes a lot of guts to agree to taking an un-retouched, pared and stripped down, portrait designed to show off what a mom’s body looks like. I was beyond grateful to collaborate with Alamo City Moms blog and shoot their photo essay for “Motherhood: More Than Skin Deep”. Along with the beautiful images, each mom answered a few questions about motherhood and her journey and those answers were posted… Keep Reading
