Welcome to my new blog!!I'm so excited to be able to have a place to share my images aside from facebook :]

My old blog [When I typed that, I heard "She Who Must Not Be Named" in my head] was such an eye sore! I couldn't bring myself to send people there, honestly! But NOW, beautiful clean blog!

Here I will be sharing recent sessions, some going on's of my home life with my two beautiful girls and hubby and hopefully encouraging images to inspire mamas everywhere.

Take a minute to look around! There's a little bit about me, all you need to know about booking a session with me, galleries of some of my favorite images ever, and a way to reach me from anywhere in the world! [...that's probably a little bit dramatic...whatever]


I just finished up the images from this oh so lovely session and realized something...



My maternity portfolio is TY-NEE!!

I have only done a handful of maternity sessions [thanks to a few mamas who decided to go into labor when they were supposed to be taking their pictures, silly ladies] and very few of them are recent! I was unbelievably blessed last year with about 50 nursing mamas and their babies, but didn't seem to take many maternity sessions! So while I have the largest nursing collection in Texas [outside of birth photographers, of course ;)] I think I might have the smallest maternity collection...OOPS!


This is where YOU come in. I kept thinking, "What oh what can I do to start my blog off with a BANG!?" And it all of a sudden hit. I need more pictures of big, round, lovely bellies, and you [more than likely, I'm totally assuming right now] need pictures taken of your beautiful belly! So to celebrate, I have an amazing deal for FIVE mamas!

If you have checked out my "Details" page, you will see that my rates for most portrait sessions [excluding Nursing] is $300. For five lucky mamas I will shoot a full session with you for $150. You'll recieve everything you normally would for a full session with the exception of prints. This is a one time offer that I am incredibly excited about


Here's the details:
