Ashton & Emma | Engaged

Ashton and Emma are high school sweethearts to be married this summer. I have had the pleasure of knowing Emma for a few years now and have recently become closer to her. She is the sweetest and kindest soul with a beautiful laugh and smile. To now have the opportunity to learn more about Ashton, is a total joy. He is so good to Emma. You can tell in the smallest of expressions how much he loves and honors her. I am more than humbled to be on this journey to marriage with them.

Ashton and Emma honestly spend much of their time laughing and joking with each other. They are light hearted and fun and are truly present in their moments with one another. Ashton and Emma – honestly. It brings my heart so much joy to see a love like yours. I am so honored and flattered that you would give me the opportunity to be your memory keeper and story teller. Thank you for opening up over the years and here recently.  My career and life improve every time i get to spend time with you and i am so so so excited to see your love and marriage be celebrated!

Caitlin | Portraits

I have been photographing this stunning young lady for a while now. She ALWAYS blows me away. Caitlin is quiet and reserved and to herself.  But once you point a camera at her, she opens up and really lets herself be vulnerable and open.

Caitlin, you amaze me. I loved catching up with you and hearing about all the fun and exciting things that have taken place this year for you. I have the utmost confidence that you have many many more blessings to be poured out over you. Thank you for sharing your milestones with me and allowing me to be in close proximity to all the joy in your life! You will always be one of mine!

Fender | Amarillo Birth Photographer

I have been on the life journey with Derrick and Meg. They are the best kind of people to celebrate. I have been with them from engagement and bridals to wedding to maternity to delivery and family portraits… and now the arrival of their second little miracle, Fender Grey.

I cannot tell you how much joy it brings me to be able to witness all of their miracles. But more importantly, how meaningful the moments in between our photo meets up are. A few days prior to Fender making his grand entrance, Meg and I went to get pedicures. She opened up candidly and honestly about her excited emotions to welcome another baby into their lives and hearts.

Hearing her speak of him and how she hoped to see her family grow, made me feel so peaceful and…. lucky. Lucky to know her. To have her share her heart. And lucky enough to have her welcome me into her celebrations and memories.

When i got the call that Meg was in labor, i made my way up to the hospital praying that her delivery would be smooth and calm. I am so so sooooo grateful that God honored Meg through this delivery and brought the most precious baby boy into his dad’s hold. I will truly cherish this delivery forever.their on-call doctor is known to let the Dads “deliver” their own babies. This is, hands down, the most emotional i have ever been; watching Derrick be the first person to touch this little miracle.  Derrick’s expression was priceless. smiling at his mommaDerrick, Meg, Coral and families…. from the most sincere places in my heart, i thank you. For everything. for always being so kind and generous. for extending prayers and hugs. for sharing your joys with me. for sharing your truths. and spirits. for being all-around, the best kind of humans i know. thank you for welcoming us into your memories. I am so grateful that this camera of mine has taken me into the most sacred places in the lives of others and allowed me to witness the true beauty of creation and love. thank you for being so generous with everything you all are. i will forever be humbled to have been your photographer.

Its the beginning of wedding season and i am so thrilled to be capturing couples during this time in their life! I had so much fun with Zach and Stephanie. And even though i say that all the time, I truly enjoyed our time together. They are so playful and fun. Most of their time was spent laughing and giggling together… making jokes.

I love when couples relax and just enjoy their engagement session!

Livi | Amarillo Children’s Photographer

If taking this little lady home with me would’ve been ok with her mom and grandmother… and/or if it wasn’t illegal to just snatch her up and take her home with me… well… she’d be here with me eating snacks, painting our nails, and being silly.

This little doll face is so energetic and full of life. And has just the right amount of 4 year old sass.

waiting on the weekend? i feel you livi. i feel you!thank you SO much for sharing this little nugget with me! i cannot wait to see her again!!!

be infinitely blessed
