Uptown Dallas Senior Photoshoot

Shooting Brandon’s senior photos felt like a model shoot and we joked about submitting a portfolio to GQ. Proud of this young man—almost called him a kid since I’ve known him since he was 2! We found a bunch of fun locations in the Dallas Arts District and Klyde Warren Park. Thanks to big sister Sarah for her Pinterest boards and planning, this couldn’t have turned out so well without her.

Savi & Eli Engagement Photos | Martins Mill, Texas

My sister Clara and I did an engagement photoshoot for Savannah and Elijah in Martin’s Mill, Texas in November 2016. The very first time I saw this land (especially the pine tree-lined driveway) I wanted to do a photoshoot. I’m so glad we got to take photos of Savi and Eli! May the Lord bless your marriage and your life together.

Enjoy this sampling of photos.

the final hallelujah photoshoot

Clara and I concluded our 365 projects with a Sound of Music inspired photoshoot. Specifically, the I Have Confidence song.

"I have confidence...."

"How do you solve a problem like Maria?"

"Let's start at the very beginning, the very best place to start"

"When you sing, you begin with Do-Re-Mi"

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens..."

We pulled together her look from things we have at home.

Blue polka dot skirt: square-dance dress handed down from our grandmother

White-collared shirt: Gap, garage sale

Green jacket: Target, handed-down from a friend to a sister to me

Straw hat: estate sale

Tights: Walmart, I think

Boots: thrifted vintage  

Carpet bag: Thrifted + handed down

Guitar + case: Garage sale

Ooops. That’s me.

we saw armadillos this weekend

While we were camping! My family and I spent our weekend at Cooper Lake State Park, and had a lovely lake view from our campsite. The weather was beautiful, and we enjoyed the fall colors, the stars, and time as a family.

Armadillos are so cute. When they’re not roadkill.

We forgot to bring a broom, so Clara made one.

The lake view from our campsite

Potatoes for breakfast burritos

Delicious hot chocolate and marshmallows

We can never see this many stars in the city. God is amazing.
