A confession... and a softball team

I am a terrible blogger. I always have been. I start out strong and then fall by the wayside. Doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy, because I have, but it means that life gets in the way. :)

So, today is the day for mass blogging! lol. Starting with a fun and freezing shoot for Sachse High School Varsity Softball! We had to work around all the teen schedules, and the day that worked for them, well, there was a high of 34 degrees. 😳

But these girls rocked it and made it look effortless!


Forever Family (Take One!)

I met this precious family when their oldest was around 9 months. They had just brought him home and I had the honor of capturing their first professional portraits as a family of 3.

Since then, I’ve been there through out the years, when they added their second son, pictures with extended family, etc. It’s been so much fun to watch their family grow and change.

This couple has always had a huge heart to grow their family, so when they adopted their daughters, their friends send me a message. They wanted to purchase a gift certificate so that I could capture their first professional portraits of their forever family, their family of 6!

We thought we had picked a good weekend…. but well, this is Texas and the weather changes in the blink of an eye. So, instead of warming up a bit and the sun peaking out, it was overcast and chilly! Which is not ideal when working with kids, am I right? lol. So, this is “Take One”. We will be shooting “Take Two” in a month or so, in the sunshine! :). Still, I love these images and the personalities of these babies!! <3

Senior Season!

Senior season is here… or has it been here? I tend to have senior sessions year round! No complaints here, they are some of my favorite sessions to do!!

This lovely lady is Carol. I have known Carol and her family for a while now. Her younger brother was in my 12 year old son’s kindergarten class! Her father was then the boy’s baseball coach. She and her sister were then my daughter’s teammates once my daughter started volleyball in high school. So, I was honored and thrilled to capture her Senior Portraits.

These, however, are just the beginning. Her mother reached out and asked if I would do just a quick session with her letterman jacket before we do her longer session in the Spring. Makes perfect sense to me! Get the jacket pics out of the way when, you know, it’s jacket weather in Texas! So, we met up at the high school one afternoon and in about 20 minutes, captured these lovely images! <3
