Rachel Is Rockin' It!

Another awesome high school senior shoot that was filled with fun, laughter and creativity. She wanted "outdoorsy chic" and I think we did it. We found some new locations that I had never shot at before and it was so great letting the creative juices flow. We started shooting before 8am and I have to say the light was GORGEOUS! I usually have to shoot in the late afternoon and I just loved the way the light radiated off of her hair and eyes. What a doll! Honestly, I had a hard time choosing which ones to blog b/c they were all so good! Without further ado...here's RRRRRRAAAAAACCCCChhhhheeeeellllll!

Kim is a Win!

Kimberly came to me to get some updated photos of herself to use for social networking and a future blog she's been working on. She's working on fulfilling her dream to write...ugh, I wish she would write for me on this blog. I know my writing is not that exciting but thank God my photos are! While Kim is still young and has plenty of time to achieve her goal of writing, I still find it inspiring when people chase their dreams at all ages. I think it's really important to keep dreaming at all ages of your life b/c if you don't have any dreams then what keeps you going? I, too have dreams left to fulfill. Some I think I will achieve (shooting for Islands magazine or Coastal Living), some I'm not sure if I'll ever attain (being on the Ellen show) and some I pray will happen before I die (opening a small hotel in the out islands of the Bahamas. They all make me smile when I think and dream about them. Here's to Kim fulfilling her dream and I hope these photos help that process happen!

A Texas Farewell

My friends/clients are moving back to Kansas so I wanted to make them a farewell video of the photo shoots that I've done over the years. Grab some tissue b/c it's kind of a tear jerker!

Mom's Cruise 2014

I just got back from my cruise to Cozumel with 21 other crazy and fun mama's from Austin, TX. It was so fun to get away, sleep in, be served breakfast, lunch and dinner and not have to think about doing one errand, chore or clean! The weather was a bit iffy when we left Galveston but by the time we made it to Cozumel it was hot, sunny and perfect. A group of us had booked a beach get away from the cruise ship and it was awesome! We did get a bonus day on the ship due to heavy fog once we returned to Galveston. They had closed the port so we couldn't dock so we literally got to stay an extra day/night on the ship. Here's a few pics from my trip taken with my point and shoot camera :).

The hairdryer looked like a small vacuum attached to the wall.
