brie + kiwi – sneak peek

November 12, 2009

Brie’s family lived in Clovis (where Jordan is from) back in the day, and they moved to Arizona when Brie and Jordan were in junior high (right?) It’s early… I might be getting this story wrong :)

Anyhow, let’s fast forward a couple years. Say, 2007. Jordan and I got married in July, and you could say we had a little trouble getting to our honeymoon destination. For starters, we got stuck in the Phoenix airport because yours truly somehow lost her passport. So, after many phonecalls and tears, and TINY chuckles here and there, Brie’s brother, Jerrod, came to rescue us. He picked us up from the airport – probably not what he had in mind for his day… Haha.

Then it gets good. You see, our new and improved plan consisted of riding a bus from Phoenix into Mexico. So we spent the afternoon with Brie and her family, and then she took us to our chariot later that day so we could right off into the night to Mexico. I REALLY wish we would have taken a picture with sweet Brie, but she did take a picture of us as we were boarding our bus. For good times sake…

Ahh, sweet memories. There’s some history for ya. Now, to the REALLY good stuff. Here’s one of Brie and Kiwi… Briwi if you will :)

dunnihoo family

November 10, 2009

I love making small world connections. I mean, I’m completely aware that in West Texas, it’s not a huge surprise that so many people are connected in one way or another, but STILL!

After I met the sweet Dunnihoo’s, we started talking about where we were from and whatnot, and what do I find out? My best friend and roommate through college was best friends with Jessica in third grade. Haha I love it.

Anywho, SUPER cute family. Here are some from our Mini-session

hastings family

November 9, 2009

Laura and Brent definitely have a special place in my heart, as cliche as that sounds. Laura and I were youth interns together back in the day, and we both got married the same summer. We’ve got to experience a lot of fun stuff together, and a fair share of tough stuff, too. Now we’re in the same small group at our church, so it’s fun to be a part of each others’ crazy lives again.

These two are taking advantage of the Mini-session Christmas Card Extravaganza! Check out the Christmas 2009 tab for more details on that.

Here they are with Ace.

nichols family

November 6, 2009

Now, onto the other Farwell family session I had. After playing in the cotton fields for a while, I went to Ashley and Logan’s house. Their sweet boy, Cooper, was ready to go, already cheesing it up for me.

Ashley and Logan had a little contest going because they both chose some rustic places where we could take pictures. Both locations were equally as rustic and awesome :) Good job, you two.

williams family

November 6, 2009

A couple days ago, I went to Farwell, TX, and did a couple family sessions, and was introduced to the world of cotton farmers. It was pretty awesome.

There’s something about standing in the middle of a cotton field. It’s SO beautiful and peaceful, too. Then you had a sweet, precious family to the mix and it’s a good time for everyone!

hubik family

November 5, 2009

Jordan and I met Jacob and Julie back in the day when we were a part of the Southcrest University Ministry. I actually went to a small group that met at the Hubik’s, and I remember we switched locations at one point because they were about to have a baby. Now, we all go to Redeemer, little Hays is so grown up, and Will is a part of the precious Hubik family, too!

And a little side note, Julie is the owner and doctor of Audiology at Cornerstone Audiology, so if you are ever in need of an Audiologist, she’s your girl :)

Onto the cuteness!!

alison – senior

November 4, 2009

Alison graduates from Texas Tech in December and she graced Lubbock with her beautiful presence yesterday! She REALLY rocked her session. I mean, really. See for yourself.

But first, I want to share a little something we talked about. We were saying how funny it is that high school senior pictures seem so much more important than college senior pictures, but why? You’re graduating from COLLEGE, for crying out loud! And making your way into the “real world!” And one thing Alison said was, “It’s not like in five years I’m going to have an excuse to randomly go get pictures taken of myself, so it just made sense to do them now.”

So, with that, I say to my college graduates out there… Let me take pictures of your beautiful self! It’s an exciting time in life, and your family wants your face on their fridge. :)

love love love this one!

smothers family

November 3, 2009

I know this family all because of Starbucks. Christa started out as my intimidating shift supervisor :) then quickly became a dear friend. And even though I don’t work at ol Starbucks anymore, I still see Christa often, and I still love being a part of her family’s life. I started working there right when Christa found out she was pregnant with Elijah, and I think I gained 10 pounds throughout her pregnancy… she always had the best food up at work :)

One thing about Christa… she always supported me as I pursued photography. She knew I loved working at Starbucks, but she always knew my goal was to do what I love, photography, full-time, and she always stood by my side as I made that journey. So thanks for that, Christa. It’s because of people like you that I am doing what I love.

But before I start getting all emotional, I better just get onto the cuteness overload of these photos.

Azam Family

November 2, 2009

We were determined to go through with our scheduled session last week, and by golly, we did it! It may have been a bit chilly, and little Brady had a red nose by the end, but it was fun to get all bundled up and enjoy the fall weather.

This family is beyond precious, and it really made my day getting to spend some time with them. Here are some of my favorites!
