Regarding Fall Scheduling.....

Hello friends!  Hope you've had a wonderful summer!  I have a few important announcements to share today....

1) Unfortunately there was not enough interest in Back-to-School mini sessions for me to schedule a sign up.  If, however, you would like a mini session for Back-to-School, you may still schedule that privately with me, on an individual basis.  The price will be the regular price of $100 for the mini session.  For more info, please email with questions.  

2) This is the big one.  This Fall I have accepted a full time, long term job with the school district.  Some of you may know that I have also been a substitute teacher for the school district for the past few years.  However, starting the very first day of school next week, I will be employed as a full time/long term sub for the first part of the school year.  

What does this mean for you?  Well, first off, I am not...repeat NOT....ending my photography career.  I am, however, putting things on hold just for the Fall, until my schedule is back to 'normal', when I am back to subbing only part time, and am available for sessions more regularly.  I look for that to be sometime mid-October (ish), though I am not 100% sure exactly when due to circumstances beyond my control.  Therefore, I am not scheduling Fall sessions as of right now.  As the time draws closer when I can be sure of a date, I will provide updates and send out emails and communications to let you know where things stand and when you may start booking again. 

I know that many of you will need to turn elsewhere to ensure your family photos get done this Fall and I completely understand.  What I do hope is that a few of you will wait until I am more available later Fall.  I also hope that this does not mean I lose you as a client permanently.  I value and treasure each one of you more than you know.  

Now, for the good news!!!.....

3) I do still plan to do Pumpkin Patch minis in October!  I do not have a date for those as of yet, but if you'd like to be first on the list to know when sign ups are available, make sure you are on my email mailing list.  

4) And last but not least, because of the uniqueness of this situation, I plan to offer Fall Family minis for the first time ever!  I will schedule these in the very near future, for those of you that do need your family session done sooner rather than later.  I am super excited about this option because it allows me to still hopefully get to photograph a lot of you for your Fall pictures!  Again, if you are not already on my email list, be sure to get on it now to be the first to know of these.  They are sure to fill up quickly!  

Whew!  Thanks for reading this long update.  And thanks for hanging in there with me.  It is worth repeating - I value each and every single one of you and your families so much!  I treasure getting to photograph your growing families and it is the single most favorite part of my 'job'.  

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns or to get on my (email) mailing list at  Thanks so much!

Fall Booking Information...

Fall booking is now officially open!  Please read below for more information and how to schedule...

Firstly, please remember, no session date/time is official until I have received the $50 retainer.  I know a lot of my clients I only see once a year and some of you may have possibly missed the pricing change I made the first of this year.  Please review pricing details here.  A family session is $200, with $50 of that being due as your retainer.  Newborns are $250.
Also, please note: I refuse to overbook myself this year as to not miss out on MY family during this special time of the year.  So if spots get full this Fall, they are full.  Pictures typically take about 2 weeks to be returned from the date of your session.  Please plan accordingly if you need Christmas cards and such.  There are no rush options due to poor planning.  However, images are now being returned via an online gallery which speeds up the return time (please still allow 2 weeks).  And with this new process you also get a mobile app with every session included free!  

Keep in mind, I will still be scheduling pumpkin patch mini sessions during October.  Mini sessions are normally $100, but with the special, pumpkin patch minis will be discounted to $75.  If time or opportunity allows, I always like to hope I can schedule the same kind of special for holiday sessions in December.  These sessions fill up very quickly.  The clients on my email list always get first notification of these events.  So if you'd like to be included on the email list, now is the time to let me know!

Please contact me at now to schedule your session!

Bluebonnet mini sessions

Short notice this year!  (sorry...)  But SAFE bluebonnets are sparse this year.  Everyone keeps saying how they see them all along the highways, but I am NOT comfortable holding mini sessions just off the highway.  My usual spots weren't sprouting the beautiful fields of bluebonnets this year.  But I've finally found a safer spot and will be holding mini sessions this week!  Below is the link to sign up and please email me right away after you sign up so I can send you detailed instructions and directions right away!  Thanks!

Click here - Bluebonnet Minis Sign Up!

Don't forget to sign up quickly - these spots are already going quickly!!!

Valentines, a sampling

Here's a few images from each of my Valentine mini sessions I held back in February.  Enjoy the cuteness!

Reed, newborn

I've done these older boys pictures before with some mini sessions.  This time, they welcomed new baby Reed to the mix and I was so honored to get to cuddle with this sweet little guy.  I think he already knows he's the third child.  He was so laid back and easy going!

Kayci and Jace

Had a great time with this family.  All too often soooo many people want to do their session with a rustic feel - in a field, a pasture, next to a bard or such.  However, unless YOU have access to a place such as this, we can't just go to some private property for a session.  I would argue that's my top request is for a place like this.  This family however, did have access to this kinda place and I LOVED it.  So many different scenarios and places, made it hard to choose!  Plus they were great subjects.  :)

Normally, I prefer a sun lit day.  Just makes for some beautiful lighting scenarios.  However, with this family, fortunately we shot on a cloudy day.  Little guy Jace has some light sensitivity issues so even with the clouds, he had to keep his glasses on for the most part.  However, I did get one image of his big beautiful blue eyes!
