I’ve had the joy of following this girl, photographically, from the time she was about ten till now – a senior in high school!  Here are a few favorites from our time on Friday!

I am really super pumped that this couple chose me to document their day.  They are one of the nicest couples I’ve ever met and had such a great attitude, despite coming down for their engagement session from Dallas, only to find Lubbock submerged in water.  It poured the entire session, but they rocked it! We will do Part 2: The Sunshine Session whenever we get another chance.  Because I’m pretty sure it won’t rain again all season.  Just when I have a shoot with people who can’t reschedule :)

Just a few favorites from my wonderful time with the effervescent couple, Alison and Jason.  They are so much fun to be around and I can’t wait for their wedding!

As always, I had a great time hanging out with my buddies, Whitney and Ben.  And by “great time” I mean, we nearly got eating alive by mosquitoes.  They were great sports (well, Whitney was ;) and we made it out alive with some wonderful moments.

Austin and Nina wanted something very specific for their one-year anniversary shoot.  They wanted to convey the concept of how they met and how they felt like they were the only people on the planet.  We started out with just one shot idea in mind, and the entire shoot ended up developing that isolated, last-two-people-on-earth feel and I love it.  This shoot was so much fun for me.  I shot in ways I’ve never shot before (like at ISO 26,000 for one frame and one shot was 6 seconds long) and I’m thankful for clients that are easy going and trust me completely.  This mostly all-night shoot was outside my usual comfort zone and I think I could get used to it :)

I adore these people, their families and felt so happy to be there with them, eating cheese and laughing at dancing babies.  Here are my favorites:










Just gorgeous


I loved these two.  Above: both moms looking on.  Below: I saw Cristen say “okay, breathe” to herself to keep from crying :)









Coolest bouquet ever
