Jill is one of the most radiant brides I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Her smile is perfect every time and that joy is just unmatchable! It’s been such a joy to walk alongside her and Ryan through their wedding planning process and I’m so excited to share her bridals now that she’s officially […]

Growing up in New England, spring was always my favorite season. After enduring months and MONTHS of bitter cold, countless snow storms, ice, and a general hue of gray cast over the earth, spring was the season of the new. Lush flowers, the smell of the ocean, and a little sunshine can cheer up even […]

This past weekend, I was shooting a wedding with a friend and the videographer asked if, with how good cell phone cameras are getting, we thought we’d be replaced by them. It’s an interesting question and honestly one that’s circled around for awhile. I cringe every time I see the Apple commercials that make everyone […]

Why professional photography is still worth the investment

Apr 17, 2018

Between expecting friends and clients, there are bumps all over the place these days and I love it! I’m happy to share this maternity session at the Dallas Arboretum and I’m obsessed with the pink dress Lauren wore! I love how Lauren and Shaun’s winter maternity session turned out (though you’d never know it was […]

My guess is you know someone with a photography horror story. Or maybe you are that person. The wedding photographer didn’t get a photo of the mom and bride and barely knew how to work their flash. The amateur newborn photographer/nextdoor neighbor did the session in his garage and it took four hours and not […]

How to choose your family photographer

Apr 10, 2018

I don’t know about you but I soo miss the days of the TV show “What Not to Wear.” Stacey and Clinton had such a knack for turning train wreck fashion no-no’s into beautiful works of art simply by transforming their wardrobe and how they saw themselves. Talk about POWER. I, like a lot of […]

Spring photo session wardrobe guide

Apr 6, 2018

The sweet Alvarado family met me early a few weekends ago on a gray morning for their family portrait session. I knew from the second Taylor started sending me their outfit options that they would be one stylish and well-dressed clan. I was not wrong! Their color palettes of blues, gray, whites, khaki, and a […]

We live in a world of image overload and I know I’m not the only one who feels the weight of that. You’re sitting at your desk all day, browsing Pinterest and Instagram for wedding inspiration and simultaneously becoming beaten down by all the possibilities. On the one hand, you want a beautiful wedding. Who […]

Your wedding day details PLUS a free checklist!

Mar 21, 2018

Lauri Ann has been a friend for a long time — we both started as newbies at our job together six years ago and formed a tight friendship. Though we’ve both moved on, I’m so thankful we’re still friends! Last fall, I had the honor of doing her maternity session at Arbor Hills in Plano. […]

You’ve got all your plans in place: vendors are booked, dress is altered, hair and makeup styles are chosen, and those loose ends are tying themselves up quite nicely. You’ve thought about where you want photos of you and your hubby-to-be on the wedding day and how pretty the bouquets will look against the bridesmaids […]
