Senior Photoshoot

Let me introduce the beautiful, magnificent, talented, and hilarious Emily - my little sister! She is a senior this year and is so grown up I can hardly believe it! My funny little sis who used to walk around in her bathing suit and my moms pink pumps is now a full grown woman deciding on colleges and working in the real world.
She just turned 18 at the beginning of this month too!

My family lives far, far away in Texas and so I flew out to see them for a weekend and we took Emily's senior photos while I was there. It was way fun because their little downtown had all these cute run-down homes where we went and set up a mini studio.

We also had a blast with the crickets in a massive hay field with GIANT hay bails!

I am so glad I got to take some time with my sis and do these pictures for her. She should just forget school and go into modeling but I don't think my parents would approve... he he. I can't wait for her to go off to college and have a blast experiencing those years!

We all love you, Auntie Em! *More beautiful pictures to come...*

Wedding Bells for Nate and Xana!

My husband's best friend from elementary school got married a few weeks ago and they asked me to be their photographer! It was a lot of fun and both of their families were a blast!
I don't really understand what is going on with this picture - once I get it fixed, I will re-post it so you can see the true colors... right now it is doing that weird negative coloring.

Xana looked amazing in the dress her mom made! Her mother also made all the bridesmaid dresses, ties for the groom and groomsmen, vests for the little boys, as well as her own dress. I was WAY impressed! The colors they chose for the wedding were the beautiful rich colors of fall so everything looked very elegant and warm.

It was so fun to be with these two on their wedding day. You could tell they were SO excited! Everyone was way tired because they had all stayed up REALLY late the night before putting last minute touches on everything from the wedding video to the dresses. It all went off without a hitch!

Thanks Nate and Xana for allowing me to document your beautiful day! Best wishes!
