Amy + Trevor | Colorful and Bright Fall Engagement Session

Amy and Trevor's engagement session was full of nonstop laughter, especially during the beginning when they were first getting their nerves out. I loved it. They are the kind of clients that I love being around, taking pictures of, and serving. There were times when we should have been taking pictures but we were talking too much!

The Medina's | Palo Duro Canyon Family Photos

This is my fourth time taking pictures of this sweet family! The first time was two years ago when the littlest one wasn't even born yet! I've so enjoyed getting to know them over the past couple of years and documenting the girls growing up. They keep getting prettier and prettier and I hope I get to take their pictures for years to come.

Anna + Josh | Amarillo Country Club Wedding

One of my favorite parts of any wedding day is the speeches. It's the time of the day that always shows everyone's true personalities. It's a chance for those present to express their love for the bride and groom and it often ends up with everyone in the room wiping away happy tears. I love to learn the stories and hear about the amazing friendships that have led up to this day. A wedding day is about more than the bride and groom - it's about two families coming together.

Belle | Palo Duro Canyon Head shots

Gosh, this girl is so pretty! She is graduating from West Texas A&M University this December so she did a graduation/head shot session with me. She needed some fresh head shots because she is leaving for Los Angeles after graduation where she is moving to go to film school and pursue a career in acting. She told me she wants to start out in commercials. I hope these pictures will help get her where she wants to go!

Rachel + Matt | Engagement Session at Texas Tech University

I first met Rachel a few months ago when she booked me for her upcoming wedding and the first time I met Matt was during their engagement session. When I saw them together I instantly knew that they fit perfectly together. I mean, just look at them! Matt is from all over the United States but he moved to Lubbock to accept a job at Texas Tech's library. He then met Rachel at church and they fell in love.

Brenna + Landon | Autumn Santa Fe Wedding at The Club at Las Campanas

Brenna and Landon got married on the most perfect, not-a-cloud-in-the-sky, 65 degree day surrounded on all sides by New Mexican mountains. Brenna is from Tucson and Landon is from Texas so for them, Santa Fe was a place for them to meet in the middle. It was the place where they fell in love and the place where Landon would eventually propose to Brenna. About a year later, they became husband and wife in the one of the most beautiful places that I’ve seen.

The Weber's | Palo Duro Canyon Family Photos

Tyler is one year old and all of his grandparents came all the way to Amarillo from Ohio and Oregon to celebrate his big day! While in town they decided to honor the occasion with a family photo session. We battled the crazy Texas wind during their photo shoot but overall, we made it work and we all had a ton of fun together. This family has a lot of love for their youngest grandchild and it was a joy to see.

Sydney | WTAMU Senior Photos

Sydney is on her way to graduate from West Texas A&M in a couple of short months! I love shooting college senior photos because it's amazing to see people nearing the finish line and accomplishing the huge goal of graduating college. You can see the relief on their faces! We ran around WT's campus and had a lot of fun together celebrating her success. She's a sweet soul that I loved getting to know.

Kambra + Tanner | Autumn Wedding at Walnut Tree Weddings

Kambra is a teacher and Tanner is a Texas cotton farmer. No, these aren’t the lyrics to a country song - it’s the real life love story between two amazing people. They got married a few weeks ago on an autumn day and it made sense that they chose Walnut Tree Weddings, a venue that is surrounded on all sides by miles and miles of cotton fields.
