Christina Everyday...

Christina has accomplished what many in my generation have found hard to do... she stuck with her dream and with hard work and determination succeeded. She now has graduated with a degree from the University of Phoenix. I was so excited to capture this special accomplishment in her life. I admire her and her desire to succeed. Her and her boyfriend Jason are also high school sweet hearts. Jason came along on the shoot for support and I loooove how he can make her laugh and open up. If you can still make each other smile and laugh the way these two do after ten years you know you have something special. I had so much fun with the both of you and I look forward in watching what the future holds for you! Have fun at your Grad party and CELEBRATE!

Congrats Christina!
Up Next... Family Love.

Baby Love

I recently featured Melissa and Jim's wedding on my blog and I was so excited to spend more time with them and capture some late birthday pictures of their daughter, Ava. The name Ava is a name that is very close to my heart. It is my grandmothers name and if I'm blessed with a girl (fingers crossed) her name will be Ava as well. So hopefully someday the two little Ava's will be friends because I am absolutely in love with this one. Those eyes just steal your heart and her little personality brought me to tears laughing.

Linda & Joe... Married

One of the latest trends in the wedding industry is to have a bridal portrait session after your BIG day. With the stress and chaos a wedding day sometimes brings, you don't always capture the images you were hoping to walk away with. So many couples are recreating the magic from the day they became husband and wife. Whether it be the day after or a year after... it's always fun recreate your special day and capture some beautiful images that you will cherish forever.

Since my husband and I are high school sweethearts... I always have a soft spot for people who share the same story. Joe and Linda Escobar have been together for well over a decade and in my opinion are one of the most adorable couples I have ever met. I watched throughout high school as their love grew and to be honest... they still have the same spark and love that they did back then. They were married almost a year ago and had an AMAZING wedding. Since their wedding was HUMUNGOUS they decided to capture some more intimate portraits of just the two of them. And they just take my breath away....
