favorite of 2016

In 2016, I got to photograph quite a few couples. I was there for my sister's pregnancy & my niece's birth. I even got to do her newborn photos, which I learned wasn't the type of photography I would want to take on full time. Kudos to all the birth & newborn photographers out there; birth & newborn photography is hard ass work. I switched over to offering prints & products, which has been the best decision I could have made. I absolutely love seeing my work in print. And I know my clients love seeing their loved ones in photos on their walls & photo albums. <3 

The images you see below are just a few of my favorites from 2016.

Once Christian finished school & Summer rolled around, we finally moved back home to be with John after he spent several months in Korea. Then we moved to Austin, where Christian started second grade & John started college & making videos. I got to photograph my cousin's second pregnancy, which was super awesome since I took photos of her first pregnancy. We visited with family in Georgia for the first time since moving to Texas in Summer 2011. 

I am ready for 2017. I am ready to meet new people & create amazing art. I am ready to check off the few goals I have on my photography bucket list. I am ready to print my work more often. Hopefully, I put myself out there a bit more in 2017 because I know amazing things will happen when I do.

christmas 2016

My family & I traveled to Georgia to see family we had not seen in over five years. I loved watching Christian interact with his grandparents. <3

Basically the visit consisted of eating a bunch of delicious cookies & staying up super late. I took a bunch of photos of our airplane rides & of John, Michelle, & Ben talking about video games. We opened awesome presents for Christmas & ate delicious food.  I had an awesome time visiting with them. Felt like we never even left. Hopefully, we will go back sooner than five years.

My sister in law, Michelle, & her boyfriend, Ben.

Christian & his gramma built & painted some birdhouses! 

Kinda weird to see someone using a phone attached the wall, right?
Gotta document that for the future.

I really had an awesome time photographing Michelle & Ben. They just celebrated their one year dating anniversary. Seriously one of my favorite couple's photo shoot I've done so far. Click the link below to see their photos. <3 

Michelle & Ben

The day after Christmas, I finally got to meet Elizabeth & Abby. And then I forced everyone to stand together to take pictures. I can't wait to print these ones out!

liz + brendan

Aren't Brendan & Liz the cutest couple? I learned during the photo shoot that they actually met on Instagram. Crazy stuff. I'm so happy that they trusted my vision during the shoot because I absolutely love all of these photos. The tree shot is my favorite. <3
