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!

The King family….I just adore them! Everything you would imagine a good San Antonio family should be – caring, loving, and funny to boot! The boys are super sweet, and while little man gave me a run for my money, big Brother didn’t have a problem showing us his awesome personality! K & B, you guys are amazing! I’m so thankful to not only have you as clients, but as friends as well!

Natalia's Senior Session {San Antonio Senior Photographer}

September 6, 2011 · 5:00 am

I met Natalia at the studio where we got started with her senior photos. She wanted some more relaxed less formal photos, so we took the 2 minute drive (it was 105* – no way were we walking!) down the road to wrap up the shoot in a natural setting. These are some of my favorite senior photos – Natalia’s beauty both inside & out truly shines through these, don’t you think?

I just can’t pick a favorite – I’d love to hear which is your fav! Please be sure to check these out on the Facebook page at

Thanks for checking them out!

It’s truly indescribable – the birthing process it truly something words cannot possibly nor accurately describe. Joy & pain, it’s a roller coaster of emotions and physical being. I was honored to attend & photograph this recent birth – I’ll be posting maternity & newborn images in the coming days as well.

Thank you J for having me attend your beautiful daughter’s birth!

L Family {San Antonio Family Photographer}

June 14, 2011 · 4:20 am

The L family came to San Antonio for a bit of a stay-cation – they are from a city just a little outside Houston, but decided to head out to San Antonio to enjoy some fun family pool time here in good ol’ San Antonio! It was the perfect opportunity to update their family photos, as the little guys just keep getting bigger. I just loved their coordinated outfits and the grounds of their resort provided the perfect setting for their family portraits!

L family, it was a pleasure working with you! Your boys are true joys, and you are a beautiful family both inside and out!

I just love this image....

Aren't they GORGEOUS?!

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!
