I have prayed for this little boy for over two years. I still remember how excited I was when Brittany told me they were ready to start trying to get pregnant, and we began dreaming of her future little family. It has been a long journey of waiting on the Lord’s timing, and mourning the […]

I still vividly remember the day Brooke told me she was pregnant. It was a Sunday morning and I was getting ready for church when she sent me a picture of a positive pregnancy test and a text that said “Aunnntieeee Beccaaaaa. Good morning from our little Samuels adventurer #2!” Needless to say, I immediately […]

It’s no secret that I love spring. The minute it starts warming up, trees begin budding and flowers bloom, I’m in heaven. I live for warmer weather and get so excited for all the spring photoshoots. I’m a huge fan of the tall grass, green trees and flowers everywhere. It’s my favorite time of year […]

My first job in high school was as a waitress at a local all-you-can-eat cafe. I was in charge of filling (and refilling) drinks, bussing tables and running the cash register. It was a lot of work, but I loved it. I’d end the day exhausted and my feet would be killing me, but there […]

And it was seriously the perfect evening for a session. The wind was gently blowing, making the leaves rustle above us. The […]

I am so excited to share this shoot with y’all! I had the greatest privilege to work with one of my high school classmates the other day to celebrate Mother’s Day the best way possible… By taking maternity pictures for her soon-to-be-here baby. When she first reached out to me, I was thrilled. Not only […]

I first met Brooke years ago when we were both living in Denton. I was mailing a package at the post office and she was in line in front of me. I knew she looked familiar, but wasn’t sure if she just looked like someone I knew, or I had just seen her around town. […]

The other day I had the greatest honor of doing this maternity session for one of my coworkers and friends, Valerie. Have you ever seen such a gorgeous soon-to-be mom before? She was radiant, and her love for her little family was already so evident. And I bet you didn’t even know she is pregnant […]
