these two were such a joy to photograph. i could feel their love and happiness radiating with every frame. it was so much fun coming back to an old location with a fresh look and creating something new.
a beautifully intimate september wedding
eff colonialism and the foundation that this holiday is built on. hopefully we can change that and address the negative history while bringing awareness and change to the present. however, i hope everyone had a good holiday filled with good food and family (given or chosen). this year has been filled with ups and downs but i’m thankful for all the people in my life that have made it infinitely worth it.
Yashmeena + Joshua.
i enjoyed a gorgeous spring morning amongst beautiful rose bushes and japanese maples documenting yashmeena and josh's love for each other. i mean seriously, look at those gazes!
this was definitely one of my favorite grad shoots to date!! hey may grads, i'm still booking some shoots! you still have time to send out announcements and invitations!
a lovely saturday morning spent amongst tulips and cherry blossoms with my family.
there's just something about soft light, trees, and art... my cousin acacia was in brazil before the wedding so we actually took their engagement photos a few days before the actual ceremony in dallas! she got married on saturday and moved to brazil today... i'm sad she's gone, but excited for her to start her new life with adriano. can't wait to visit brazil and eat ALL the korean food!!
my cousin's engaged! welcome to the family ela~ i took their portraits on christmas and luckily downtown plano was completely dead. not a single car or person in sight. every photographer's dream ♡
pumpkin patches. pumpkin pie. pumpkin soup. pumpkin spice lattes. pumpkin curry. PUMPKINS! my day with chloe was the BEST, but that's to be expected when you have the same love for pumpkins and coffee. if you can't tell, fall themed photoshoots are my favorite.
i had the pleasure of shooting terry and kaili's engagement photos two years ago, and now i'm taking their maternity pictures!! this gorgeous light and comfortability between them made my job so easy. i know it's cliché to say, "time flies", but it really does. and exactly one day after kaili posted these, she had the baby early. so i'm pretty much magical.
i am so lucky sometimes! my clients sure know how to throw a party. the simpler, the better in my opinion. i never knew this little gem was here, but it was the perfect sunny day for the lake. these are some of my favorite moments to share. enjoy!
as i patiently wait for the third installment to their family, here are some shots i took pre-Levi.
i didn't win the contest, but i got some good photos!
"i'm with you. no matter what else you have in your head. i'm with you and i love you."
"you can't help it. sometimes you just look at someone and realize they are one of the best things that ever happened in your life."
