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!!

My kids are not exactly cuddly little newborns anymore. In fact, they are precocious little kids who would rather play iPhone games and race Hot Wheels most of the time instead of cuddling with me…. Lucky for me, I have an amazing career where I get to cuddle babies anyway! Go me!

Meet Cole – who, if you can believe it, is even sweeter than he appears in these photos! Thanks to the H family for having me and letting me hang with y’all for a few hours!

Grand Opening! {San Antonio Photographer}

June 14, 2011 · 2:53 am

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!

{Family} San Antonio Family Photographer

November 13, 2010 · 8:08 am

I met J & her family through a client of mine and as it turns out, J & her mother are fantastic business women here in San Antonio! Creating some adorable knit items, you can find her stuff at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ritzyrugrats – I adore their items!!

So J has the MOST adorable daughter C, and a very kind husband D – we got together to get a family photo and a few updated photos of the precocious Miss C. I’d say Mission Accomplished. We met at the local neighborhood community area and got these great shots – just goes to show ya, a little space can go a long way!

Thanks for allowing me to be your photographer J – I can’t wait to watch your family grow in the years to come!

A personal post – What Custom Photography is to Me – San Antonio Photographer

June 7, 2010 · 5:01 pm

Custom Photography. It’s a phrase thrown about SO much it seems. Lightly, without regard to what CUSTOM truly means.

What does custom photography mean to me? And how do I ensure your experience is a fabulous one?

It means client receives my utmost attention to every single detail. Their vision for the session, paired with mine, is considered, well thought out, and executed with care & precision. From the initial contact, my client is my priority. I happily discuss options for location – not just any old park will do! We discuss visions, investment, but most importantly, we discuss YOU. The client. What are YOU looking to receive from a session – a more traditional feel, or something more carefree, relaxed. Are you looking for indoors, our outdoors? Natural or a more funky urban approach? We’ll discuss what to wear, depending on the location. We’ll discuss how to approach the session. At the time of the session, we’ll have a great time. We’ll talk, we’ll laugh – I want you to feel like you are the only family there is! Because at that time, you are. You will have 110% of my attention. I want you to feel a warm fuzzy feeling from beginning to end! After the session, I will carefully select the photos that represent you & the vision we set for the session. They will be edited to bring out and highlight details, to provide you with family heirlooms. After the gallery is complete, we’ll get together in a comfortable environment. You will watch a slideshow of your gorgeous images, set to music. You will review your proofs and we will discuss wall display options, print options, fine art products and digital collections. When your products arrive, they will be packaged and prepared for you, with special touches to remind you just how much I enjoyed the experience. Why? Because I do! This is my job, sure. But this is also my passion! I thoroughly enjoy meeting each and every client, getting to know personalities and opinions! My business is capturing your life, one click at a time.

When you are looking for a photographer, it’s important to look past the initial investment. Look at their portfolio, see that they are a member of a professional photographer association (such as Professional Photographer’s of America or “PPA”) talk to past clients (if possible), do your research, including reading online reviews such as on Google and other search engines. With fly-by-night businesses running rampant, it’s important to do your homework and ensure that your investment is in a reputable professional registered business. Don’t fall prey to the false claims of those who promise something that seems too good to be true – it likely is. Truly CUSTOM photography is an investment. And for your investment, you will receive an experience, not just a photo session. You will receive heirlooms, treasures to last a lifetime.

I look forward to meeting you, and making you feel like a star!
