It has been said that "a picture is worth a thousands words." I believe that a picture that captures a moment is worth so much more. There are things in life that can't be replaced or relived, but a photograph can bring back those feelings in a rush. To me photography is more than just angles and lenses, its about the little things that become unforgettable.

Danielle & Dustin ~ Engagement Session


I met Danielle back in August when she emailed me to get more information about wedding photography. After a bunch of emails and having to reschedule a couple times due to illness, we were finally able to get together to talk wedding and do an engagement shoot.

They have an incredible location for the wedding. A gorgeous, rustic, western church with tons of space and even rodeo grounds in the back! We took some shots there as well as in down town Wichita Falls. It was a perfect evening and we got some great pictures as well as a chance to get to know each other.

Photography Challenge–Sunset


I love sunsets! I love watching a sunset with my hunny even more! :)

A couple of weeks a go we took a drive to a local lake and wandered around as the sun was setting. We (and by we I mean Mule) found all kinds of “interesting” things on  the beach, including a fish head. Yummy!

Here are some of my favorite sunset pictures from that night…

Photography Challenge–Orange


I’m not usually a orange person, but when I came across this adorable fabric and a great Idea for something to add to my vendors booth for the fall and Christmas fairs coming up, it seemed like the perfect match.

I missed the perfect evening lighting by about 20 minutes. Grrrr! I blame the dishes. With a little editing, they’re better, but I may try this again some time.

I also took a few other product photos while I was at it
