becky + keith – wedding

March 30, 2010

What a FUN day this was! Courtney and I headed to Midland Friday night, so we would be ready to hit the ground running Saturday.

Becky and Keith were both so laid back the entire day, and it was fun to really see them take in every moment and enjoy it fully. These two are in love, folks. Like, bigtime.

Here, we’ll skip ahead, just so you can see right off the bat. CUUUUTE.

But look. They can be serious, too.

Everything started out at Becky’s parents’ house – a Bridal Brunch, getting ready, pictures with the girls… It was so simple and relaxed – I loved it!

Everyone all piled into one big bathroom + good tunes + awesome ladies = so much fun!

One thing I REALLY appreciated about Becky was that she was always open for my suggestions. So instead of Mary Kathryn doing Becky’s makeup in the bathroom, we moved our location in front of this magically-lit window. Pretty, huh?

Same story on this one. Two huge glass doors? Uhhh, yes please!

patterson family

March 26, 2010

It’s amazing to me how much babies grow and change and learn in the first year of their lives. And it’s even more amazing when parents choose me to be the one to capture that first year. I begin to feel so connected and so much a part of something so so so awesome. And then the family tells me that they’re up and moving and I feel like I’m being cheated on…. Haha I’m kidding. But really… Sad day!!!

Yes, the Patterson’s are up and moving to Dallas. But don’t worry, we already have our 9 month session scheduled :)

You might remember Lorelei’s sweet newborn session. Then her three month session. And now onto her sixth month session!

These two are ADORABLE. They both have a dang good sense of style, too. Amanda works at Anthropologie, so you can only imagine the amount of inspiration she gets every day :)

And by the way. I absolutely LOVE it when couples bring along ideas and props. It makes the session extra special and you end up with fun stuff like this.

March 25, 2010

Erin and her sweet mama came in from Pampa the other day. Only in Lubbock would it snow one day, and then be an absolutely perfect day for pictures the next day (with a little wind, of course…)

I loved getting to spend some time with these sweet ladies! Erin has some crazy natural beauty going on, she was soooo photogenic. I love when people have no idea how photogenic they are.

kelli + teddy – wedding

March 23, 2010

Where to begin with this lovely day!

The girls were upbeat and happy even at 8 a.m. Now THAT’S when you know it’s going to be a good day! Lot’s of giggles and dance moves and burritos. All things that are good.

And the guys were just as giggly and happy – jammin’ to Pandora and playing chess… wait, what? :)

Kelli and Teddy chose to have a First Look, and those moments together were SO special and full of emotion. We had plenty of time for fun wedding party portraits and even time to spare before the ceremony started.

Everything was just SO them. They were giddy and adorable throughout the ceremony, and danced their way onto the reception. LOT’S of dancing on this day. I loved it!

I’ll just let the pictures do their job and tell the story…

And it is most definitely worth mentioning that everything on this day came together with the help of Dana from Eventfull by Dana K. She was an amazing coordinator/planner!!

Ella’s Tiny Two

March 22, 2010

Our little “niece” Ella turned two. And the shindig that ushered her into her toddlerdom was UH-MAZING.

Allison is most definitely known for her party planning skills, and I think she’s told “hey you really need to go into business” about once a day.

The theme for Ella’s party this year was Tiny Two, so of course Allison made a little town out of cardboard boxes, which were absolutely precious. Then the food. Ohhhh the food. Tiny kid-friendly jello shots, mini caramel apples, mini cupcakes, the cutest little homemade “2” cookies you’ve ever seen… the list goes on! But seriously, check out Lullaby Lubbock for the full low-down on the par-tay, because I was just an attendee :)

Here’s the tiny town

FOOD!

Hey party people.

I’m actually leaving town (again) bright and early tomorrow morning. This time it’s not photography related. I’m headed to Austin with some girlfriends to go camping, kayaking, hiking, dancing, who knows what else! It’ll be a solid good trip though, and I’m super excited about it. Although SO bummed to be saying goodbye to my hubby once again. He’s a miss-able guy, I tell ya! I love that man.

Anyhow, I wanted to post a little something from Kelli and Teddy’s wedding before I left town. They chose to do a First Look, so we had plenty of time to capture them on their wedding day.

March 5, 2010

Yo peeps,

I’m leaving today for a wedding in Phoenix, then I’m off to Vegas until next Friday for WPPI!

I’ll still have access to e-mail and whatnot, but if I’m a little slow on getting back to you, that’s why :)

Enjoy your weekend, my friends!
