WOW! It’s been a while! {San Antonio Photographer}

February 6, 2014 · 3:04 am

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!

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!

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!

While each of these amazing little munchkins, gorgeous families and incredible people will get their own blog post soon, I wanted to post a little catch up to show just a few things I’ve been up to over the past few months – between sessions, weddings, holidays and personal time, blogging hasn’t been easy!
