Last weekend I went to Lubbock and I photographed my best friend, Danica and her beautiful family. And then I had to snag some images of Danica by herself, because she just looked too gorgeous not to. Just to let ya know-I do travel to Lubbock for sessions ALL the time. And there is no travel fee. So...If you want a session for you Lubbock peeps, just let me know! email@example.com
This morning I got to play with these two sweet girls.
I have so many images from my Alice in Wonderland shoot I did two weeks ago. The best way for me to get these image rolling for you to see is to do them in parts.Let me first start off by saying everyone who helped rocked my socks off. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Check out part one here.

Alex is from Lubbock and came down today for her senior session. Here is one from her session. She is glowing and looks so stunning in this image. More favorites to share later. Thanks Alex for a fun morning!
Saturday I hung out with the McWilliams family. This is a super sweet family I met at Byron and Lindsay's wedding back in August. Lauren (below) is Byron's sister. It was nice seeing Lindsay and Sassy too!
Let me just say if I looked like this when I was a senior, or even now, then I would be living on cloud 9. I would first have to get a tan though :) This beautiful girl is drop dead gorgeous. And ya know what she told me? She said she wasn't very photogenic! Say what!! I am gonna strongly disagree with that one.
This is what I did last Saturday at 8 am. A sweet engagement session...
It is time to order senior cards. These can be used for your announcements or graduation party. I have several options to choose from for guys and girls. Cards start at $60 for a pack of 25 Flat cards with front and back Available in semi-gloss or recycled paper
Senior sessions are by far one of my most favorites. I'm just sayin'. Laura's family came along for her senior session, and I loved that. I love it when the family keeps it real and gives support. We did her session in good 'ol Farwell, Tx. I love that little town :)Here are the favorites from her session...
This is one of my favorite shots to date. It says, free, let loose, have fun and just dance. If I weren't so tired, I would just dance.Night night.
I have been blessed with great clients over the past 3 1/2 years I've been in business. My clients honestly have become friends of mine too. I have been thinking today about them (you) and they (you) put a smile on my face.A few things they have done that make me smile: Thank you letters in the mail: One girl sent me a thank you note that she had made. She loves to do scrap book stuff and and made me a beautiful card. I so appreciated her creativeness. Last year some sweet clients gave me a basket full of my favorite things, and I was totally blown away. It made me tear up. I was so thankful for them. Sweet letters from wedding clients Recently a client told me how excited her husband was AFTER the session. Yes, after! I love hearing that. He had so much fun with his family taking pictures that he looks forward to doing it again. I am NOT making this up either. Cross my heart. Another fun thing I love about my clients is I get to go to Zumba with them :) SO FUN! I love learning from my clients too. When I'm photographing them, I'm looking further into who they are as they connect with each other. When I see a deep connection, it makes me want to know them more and be apart of their family.
I might be rambling a little, but I was just thinking of you today and I wanted to say thanks for being wonderful clients and further more for your friendship. Have a blessed day my friends.
This morning I woke up in a [panic] because I remembered I wanted to update my Senior Music playlist. I don't know names of songs, or music artist and I was having a hard time thinking of great songs that make ya want to dance. Thanks for facebook because I had lots of people give their suggestions, creating a very fun and energetic playlist for my two H.S seniors today. Here are some from the playlist people suggested: Another One Bites the Dust-Queen Rapper's Delight-Sugarhill Gang Barracuda-Fergie Tik Tok-Ke$ha Down-Jay Sean According to You-Orianthi
Thank you so so much friends for your suggestions. First senior is Laura-beautiful girl and sweet family Second senior is Stephany-she is the senior who won the senior giveaway back in the fall. Another beautiful girl with a great dad and supporting boyfriend :)
Today while Benson has been sleeping, I have gone through some of my family, kids, babies, and maternity sessions to update my portrait website.Go check it out! You might be on there if I've done a session for you!
And yesterday I had a session with one of the sweetest little boys. He would hug on me and climb up in my lap while I was taking his pictures. Such a sweet heart. He reminded me of my little BB.
Saibree is a beautiful senior in Clovis. She braved the cold air back in November and worked it like she wasn't scured...
