.one more for tonight.

It was crazy cold the afternoon of our shoot, but this family had a great attitude about making it through our session. They also did a fantastic job on the clothes. I love the colors they chose... New clients take note. ;)

Thanks, Lise and family, for making my job fun... even if the weather doesn't want to cooperate.
Until next time,

.great family.

Great family, easy afternoon, fun kids... all make for a great Christmas card.

Thanks for a great shoot!

Until next time,

.giving is awesome.

Thank you so much for all of the incredible emails that you guys sent in... I was so touched by the stories that I read. I am in contact with the family who won and I am really excited to meet them. I wanted to make sure and keep my promise to post something tonight.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this important event.

Merry Christmas to you and your families.

Until next time,

.harlee- 4 days old.

Meet sweet Harlee. I think she might be a dream baby. The night before our session she slept 5 hours in a row. At three days old. How is that possible? (lucky mommy :)

So worth the drive to Waco. So sweet and squishy...

Until next time,

.one more for today.

Now that things have slowed down a bit, I'm going to work on getting the blog caught up. Like I said a few weeks ago, I've had a bunch of families of five and they have all been so fun. It's neat to watch how families interact with each other and it's interesting to see the difference in families with one or two kids and families with 3 or more. This family was was just as fun as the rest and once I got Mr. Jake warmed up, he pulled off that "model look" quite well. All kids seem to enjoy it when all eyes are on them. :)
Thanks Richard, Claudine, Seth, Jake and Rachael for laughing at me even when I look ridiculous and for making my job fun.

Until next time,

.giving is awesome.

Please don't forget to nominate someone you know for the Giving is Awesome giveaway that I'm participating in. If you are still wanting to nominate a friend or family member, please know that there's still time. Just take a few minutes to email me a short paragraph about the family or person in need. The cut off is midnight on the 23rd. (That's this Tuesday!) The winner will be announced on the 24th.

Remember- the person nominating gets a $200 print credit- so email me!

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season.

Until next time,

.North Texas Real Estate.

I had the privilege of photographing the nice folks at North Texas Real Estate right here in Denton a few weeks ago. Their web designer needed updated photos of them so they called me. I enjoyed our laid-back, easy morning of shooting.

Know of someone who needs head shots for their business or portfolio?
Give me a call!
Until next time,

.giving is awesome.

You know someone.
You know someone who's experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone who can't afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family's spirit, love, and beauty.

You know someone. I guarantee it.
I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography -- $500 worth, to be exact. Whether it's canvas or albums, or prints for Grandma, it's in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.
Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $200 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be?
The rules:
You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
The nominee must reside in Texas. Tell me who you know, what they're experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.
Leave a comment on the blog to let me know you have entered and email me at
The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve... Get nominating! I can't wait to read all of your entries!
Open your heart to someone this holiday season and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.
I can't take credit for this... Click here to read about this epidemic. If you're a photographer maybe you could be a part of this? Maybe this is your way to give back this holiday season. Just an idea...
Thanks everyone! I'm am super excited to see how this affects one deserving family's lives.
Until next time,

.holiday orders.

If you are planning on ordering any more cards or prints, and need them before Christmas, please, please, please order before midnight on the 10th. Any order placed after the 10th will NOT be guaranteed before the 24th. I am going to try my very hardest to get all of your prints back to you within the week that you order but please DO NOT WAIT.

Thank you!
