“Back in the days before motherhood, during our long wait to the world of parenting, I used to listen to a song by The Civil Wars titled “To Whom It May Concern”
I believe the song is about a woman waiting to meet her future husband but when I listened to it all I could hear was the waiting to meet YOU part. I heard a mother waiting to meet her future child and had no idea when that blessing might come in my life.
This one line in particular held my heart:
《I missed you but I haven’t met you oh but I want to》
Every minute waiting for him was worth it. Every single time I listened to this song I imagined a beautiful baby face in my achingly empty arms but even my imagination couldn’t make up this perfect little man. Now I look at him everyday. he is so handsome and I love him so so much. How can this life be real?”

I stole this from mama Briana’s instagram post the other day and thought it was perfect to share with their post of first family portraits. Baby Xander came blazing into their lives and hearts. I am so very happy for them!

Getting to know this awesome couple and their story made this one of my favorite shoots ever. They were wanting to have professional portraits done for their adoption profile and I was the lucky lady who they chose to work with. Loved capturing them and getting document this part of their journey. Not to spoil the ending, but they now go by Mommy and Daddy. Wait until you see what’s up next on the blog!!

 

Little Lucy is growing up and so very beautiful. Loved getting to work with the Walters family years later… a different cat this time, but the same awesome people I remember.

This tiny 5lb beauty came to the studio for her newborn portraits a few weeks ago. I have absolutely enjoyed getting to know the Dalrymple family and know we will be forever friends. She was sleepy and cozy her entire session!

I had the honor of photographing a very special wedding yesterday in the beautiful Texas hill country at Chapel Dulcinea. Jeremy & Tina vowed to spend the rest of their lives together with their immediate families there to witness. It was sweet and beautiful in every way. These 2 are so in love and planned the perfect intimate wedding. I grabbed a few of my favorite images so they could share their big news with friends and family. Congratulations and thank you guys so very much for choosing me to capture this beautiful day.
