My oh my. It’s been a while!

While we have been BUSY BUSY, we have neglected our blog oh so much.

We have been busy shooting weddings at some of THE most gorgeous venues in Texas, as well as some of the most AMAZING families in and around San Antonio (dare we say it….even in Texas!). We feel so lucky and incredibly blessed to have been frolicking around the Hill Country, doing what we love and making people happy.

Here are just a few of our recent favorites, and we promise to be back more often!!

A turns ONE! {San Antonio Photographer, San Antonio Baby Photographer}

My my Mr A – how you have grown! Feels like just yesterday I was talking with N about her maternity session, and now here we are, celebrating A’s first year of life with us here! Such a sweet, cuddly little teddy bear, A seems to love the camera. We did a quick shoot at the studio with his custom outfit, and then we let A dig into his adorable blue and white cake. He isn’t shy. Obviously! N, it’s always a pleasure seeing you guys again – I’m so happy to be enjoying watching A grown and look forward to what brightness he brings to everyone’s future!

HAHA – show me your muscles!

Grand Opening! {San Antonio Photographer}

June 14, 2011 · 2:53 am

A few years ago, I thought “Hey, self – it would be awesome to have an amazing commercial space, centrally located and with fab decor”.

My thoughts and dreams are now a reality!

I would LOVE it if you would join me at the Grand Opening/Open House of my new studio space – bigger and better than anything I’ve had before. Food, drinks and music will be a-plenty (did I just say “a-plenty”??). And no Grand Opening would be complete without a fantastical give-away for thos who attend! Curious what it is? You’ll have to stop by to find out!

A new little love…..{San Antonio Newborn Photographer – San Antonio Studio Photography}

May 31, 2011 · 4:44 am

Ohhh I have been a terrible blogger!

Can I blame the crazy amounts of sessions, the move to the new studio (which, by the way – Open House plans for June 30 will be coming in the next few days! WOO HOO!) and my love of Facebook for the lack of blog love lately? Well…I am.

This image is from my first session at the new studio – so happy with the new space! I love how roomy yet cozy it is, and the ability to have all my props available for easy access by clients, a comfy space for you guys to hang while I enjoy your little ones, and not to mention how easy it is to get to! No complaints from me at all!

Meet this handsome little love – but don’t ask if you can keep him – his Mama already told me no when I ask if I could.

More to come soon!
