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!!

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!

C returns home….San Antonio Family Photographer {OpLove Photographer}

April 14, 2011 · 3:01 pm

So many words to say about this family…..how I was there to photograph J’s maternity session, S’s newborn session, her growing up during her first year, and now, as C returned home from a deployment overseas….

How J is so much more than a client now, she’s a friend. And how S is like family to me, like a niece!

How this family has made it through two deployments in just over a year, with a smile (most of the time).

So many words. But I won’t bore you with words – let me show you a little sample of what family means. What love means. This family….they KNOW love. And it shines here.

There is so much to be thankful for.

Our family. Friends. Loved ones. The annoying people that make us strive to be better people (yes, I went there).

We should never forget to be thankful for the basics – in this case, our freedom. Because our freedom is not free. Our freedom costs so much sometimes. We should be thankful for the people who are out there defending it, making our country a safe, desired and FREE place to be.

Meet the H family. M is currently deployed (he left for deployment shortly after this shoot). A is here, holding down the fort (figuratively speaking, of course!) with these two AMAZING boys. I only wish the sun would stay just on the horizon longer, so we could have shot longer – this family is amazing.

Without further adeiu, this is the H family. And I really, really like them, and I cannot wait to see M come home!
