rio frio

Even though we only got to spend about 24 hours in this beautiful place I was grateful for every minute! Love spending this time with my family every year and love the beauty of this river. 

...like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in due season and its leaf does not wither... Psalm 1

mother's day moments

This is a collection of sweet mother moments from the past few years. I've been honored to know and work with so many mamas and grandmothers that obviously love their kids so well. Capturing this love and joy is truly one of my favorite things about photography!

LIFESTYLE | summer play

I got to photograph my nieces the other week and these photos just speak summer to me! Grace is 3 and is all about make-believe right now. I love how she pretends everything into a little family and is full of surprises in the funny things she says. Shelby Kate is 1 and her very contagious smiles get me every time. Love them!

LIFE | rio frio leakey, texas

Going to the Frio every end of summer is one of my favorite things ever. My grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins and my immediate family all pile into cabins and just CHILL for 4 days straight. Nothing is ever on the agenda except some rock skipping, book reading, coffee drinking and family dinners. We found a farm one night with the sweetest animals and of course I just had to get some pictures of those too!

PORTRAIT | betsy + carson

I got to spend the morning with Betsy and Carson and couldn't get over their little mannerisms. They are the cutest! Also, was somewhat obsessed with the outfits... kind of want to find Betsy's blue romper in my size (kidding-- right?).
