    Happy Halloween
    Spooky and silly
     
    This is the year that I convinced my husband to wear a mask for Halloween!  I know, it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but it REALLY is!  Lee has always been pretty laid back and understated when it comes to Halloween costumes.  But for some reason he agreed to my outrageous…

  • Abby’s 8th Birthday Extravaganza

    Abby’s 8th Birthday
    Sometimes  you just need to throw a big silly party to celebrate your birthday!  We surprised Abby by decorating the dining room like crazy.  I’ll admit that I don’t think I’ve ever spent that much time in a Party City coordinating decorations.  But the fact that you could buy Sixlet candy in 5…

  • Texas Photog Returning Home | Thank you, Virginia!

    Moving to the Austin Suburbs
     

    If you’ve been following me for any length of time then you know that I’m from Texas.  We’re not known for our modesty when we talk about our state.   Why would you keep something like this a secret!?

  • Snow Sledding in Virginia

    Where Are My Hat and Gloves?
    My kids love snow when it’s fresh and new!  They love to sled for hours and will work up a sweat doing it.
    For this little outing at our local park I was extra prepared with hot chocolate in 2 large thermoses.  I highly recommend doing this and wish I had…

  • Proposal at DC Marina

    Josh messaged me sometime in July-Early August and told me he was about to propose to his girlfriend, Bethy.  I met Josh last year when his brother Matt and (now sister-in-law) Linnea got married.  Here’s a link to their August Wedding.  Josh and I emailed back and forth for weeks as he was developing his…

  • Urban Engagement | Winter

    A huge thank you to these two wonderful human beings for understanding why I needed to reschedule our Engagement Session by a couple months.  When I realized I was needing to have another foot surgery to correct the previous one, they didn’t blink an eye.  Esther even reached out to me following my surgery to…

  • Reception Lighting

    During every Wedding Day, I know that I have to stay flexible and pull the right combination from my bag of tricks. When I first started shooting Weddings, I only had a flash on my camera and I would use bounce flash to get reception photos. Sometimes this is all you need, but most of…
