Tips, trends and pretty images live here. Sometimes, my musings and lessons learned get spilled on these pages, too.




Emma & Spencer | Wedding at Chapel Creek Ranch, Denton, TX

Uncategorized, Weddings

The day began with rain.  I looked outside early on May 20th to find storm clouds threatening.  Knowing Spencer and Emma’s guest list spanned the globe, I began praying for the storms to subside so they could have the outdoor ceremony they planned.  That they could say their vows in wide open spaces and their […]

Candace & Jeff | Engagement Session Grapevine, TX

Engagement Photography, Uncategorized

Jeff and Candace drove from Houston to meet me on a bright morning at Grapevine Lake.  I’d spoken with Candace several times, but this was the first time in person.  Immediately, I felt so comfortable with them both, like we were old friends.  I had every suspicion it would be this way.  When inquiries come […]

Caetyn & Henry | Texas Hill Country Engagement


It was a bright, chilly, Wednesday afternoon when I met Caetyn and Henry at TMI Episcopal school in San Antonio, Tx.  While this was our first face to face encounter, I felt like I already knew Caetyn.  Caetyn found me through our mutual friend of Katherine Swain.  She’d seen Katherine’s bridal images and wedding gallery and contacted […]
