I just got in 2 new portrait CD cases and I am really happy with the new style that Millers came out with, so I thought I would share!

First is a Wedding CD that this awesome couple ordered!


And the 2nd is the CD for the Hoston marathon committee.


Just a reminder that you can order your portrait CD and it will come in a really cute, personalized CD case!  It’s like the icing on the cake!  It’s the blue box and white ribbon around the jewelry.  It’s the inspirational, reusable bag containing the yoga clothes! …you get the picture.


Have a great weekend!

bald_eagle_adult2Look at this beautiful bald eagle!

Do you know who took this photo?

NOT ME!!!!!!!!

So we went to our ranch this weekend for a short little getaway.  It is always nice to take a short drive out of the city and get into some open space!  We already live outside the city pretty much and have space…but this is even more so.  Anyways, to get to the story of the one that got away..

I am standing outside taking in the peace and quiet when I look over at the lake about 100 yards away and see a giant bird swoop down and glide over the top of the lake.  What really caught my eye was the size and the fact that it was flying so low and parallel to the water.  Thats when I noticed the white head and yellow beak and called out for someone else to look!  It was so close, it was unmistakably an eagle, but I needed back up!  The family that lives next door was standing outside with me and the husband is our ranch hand who has LOTS of experience out there.  He assured me that is was a bald eagle.  So my husband and kids all come out to see it.  It has now landed on the top of the tree right across the lake from us.  See the gorgeous photo below…








Oh, wait!  THAT’S RIGHT!   I DIDN’T HAVE MY CAMERA!!!!!!!!


and it gets worse…or better.  Depending on your perspecitve.

Suddenly we look over and in the sky ANOTHER bald eagle is approaching!  ANOTHER ONE!!! On our property.  In Texas.  It was crazy.  And as if to say, “Na Na Na Boo Boo” to me, it lands on the top of the tree right next to the one that is already there!  See that gorgeous photo below..








oh, yeah…once again….

Well, as if it couldn’t get worse…it does…

As we stood and looked at them for a few minutes and then decided to leave them in peace, we got in the Kubota to head off and what do we see in the sky heading our way…

yep…another one.  Seriously.  3 bald eagles.  No camera.  I hang my head in shame.

I did find out that there was a bird rehabitation not far from there and I figure that’s where they all came from that day.  Perhaps they were released together?  I have some gorgeous photos in my head and ultimately, I am glad that I lived in the moment with my family.  You can’t capture everything.

As promised, I am posting some more of my favorites from my wonderful clients of 2012!  Each and every one was a memorable experience for me!  I love discovering the individuality of every family and client!


You will have to forgive my “cut and paste” technique!  I’m still learning this blogging thing!  Thank you!

To celebrate my 4th year in the photography business I am finally getting a blog!


I’ll tell you now, I’m a much better photographer than I am a writer!  I type too fast and skip capitals and puncuation all the time, but I will put lots of photos in here!

I want to start by genuinely saying a big,


to all of my wonderful clients in 2012!  It was a big year for my business and I really appreciate all of the moments I got to share withevery family and every actor!


For anyone who may not know me, I take picures. Artistic, bright, colorful, full of light, photojournalistic photos!  My portraits are primarily natural light.  My headshots use a little of both (studio and natural!)  My goal is to capture the “moments” not just the smiles…although I get quite a bit of those!


So to say “thank you,”  I thought I would include a few of my favorites!  There are so many, I will have to make this a week long project!  So here is day 1:
