This morning I got to play with these two sweet girls.

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.
Tonight after Benson went to sleep I sat at my computer editing through some images from Sarah's bridal session back in November. I have about 20 something images to share and I can't wait to do that tomorrow. So, stay tuned and have a great night.
Isn't she lovely.I stayed with Sarah and Thomas last weekend and shot a maternity session for them while I was in Austin, Texas. *I added a few more for Sarah because she asked so nicely.
Let me just say that I LOVE this family. Aimee is so sweet and dear to me. We grew up together in Texas, painting our toenails like water melons, going to church camp together, and crafting it up in the summer sewing shirts for the 4th of July.Back in November I was able to see Aimee, Mike and Meryl (meeting Meryl for the first time). And I had the pleasure of photographing their family for two days. I LOVED it. I just hung out with them and had my camera with me to snap shots in a laid back atmosphere. While Meryl selpt, Aimee and I went to Anthropologie twice. And THEN, Mike made us a very delicious breakfast. Can you say monkey bread! Oh it was so so so good :)
Gab's session aloud me to be more creative than normal with senior sessions. We thought outside the box. I have lots of favorites I want to share with you, and I'll be doing them in different groups. Here is another of Gab, the artist.Click here to see the first post of instax film
Do we get our inspiration from? Here are my inspiration ideas I used on this particular image for Gab's senior session. Inspiration for this image: -Gab was first of all my inspiration for this session. She is creative, therefore I wanted something very creative for her session. -magazine images of models jumping -JCrew -Anthropologie (that is my new fun circle rug from anthro) -newspaper idea came from a fun backdrop I found from an editorial photographer, then we added our own flare with the pattern paper which was designed by Gab. -I wanted something care free, so we used the pom poms to add a soft touch.
