Yobo Master's Graduation

Her email came out of the blue.

 

She was a college student studying photography and she wanted to work with me.  I had received requests like this before, but hers seemed different.

 

After a phone chat and coffee meet-up, I invited her to assist me on an engagement session.

 

I remember the couple we photographed being very surprised that this was our first time working together. Even from the very beginning we clicked and were in sync. 

 

And now, years later she has seen sooooo much of the behind the scenes of my photography journey. The moments of panic, the breakdowns, the joyous fist bumps, and elation.  I’ve been so grateful to have her at my side. 

 

And it’s my honor to celebrate her achievement in completing her Masters!  Yobo, I can’t tell you how proud I am of you. You have worked so hard and persevered through so much. Congratulations to you!  I pray that all the ways you have given to my business and me come back to you a hundred times over!

A Flower Crown Party

My friend Evie of Evie Morgan Events recently hosted a Flower Crown Making Party at Times Ten Cellar in Dallas and it was so much fun!  Ashley with The Rogue Rose taught everyone how to make the most darling floral crowns. 

 

Opportunities to create and release your inner artist make me oh so happy.  And you can call me cheese-y, but I couldn’t help but get so many little aha moments while photographing. From seeing everyone helping and celebrating one another, to each flower crown looking beautiful in its own unique way, to seeing the ladies assisting each other with their crowns; literally!  I felt like there were sprinkles of inspiration everywhere!  Was I reading too much into a girls night out and pulling lessons out of thin air?  Perhaps.  Or maybe the lesson is this: always take an opportunity to have fun with friends and flowers! ;)  Judging by the smiles and laughter, a good time was had by all. 

 

Enjoy the photos from the party!

Wheeler Extended Family Portraits

If you’ve followed along for many many years now, you will remember this post from six (six?!?!?!) years ago where I photographed Audra and Phillip’s wedding.  Well last year I had the chance to photograph them again plus their extended family! I love when I get to see families after the wedding day for portrait photography!  And can we talk about this amazing gene pool here??? Y’all are some good-looking people!

 

 

Wheeler family you all are such sweet people and I loved getting to photograph your whole family!
