Nikita+Saurabh [Anna, TX Engagement Photography]

I am so glad to have met these two beautiful people earlier this year at an Easter event. I feel like their beauty and love for each other really shine’s through in these pictures we took at Klyde Warren Park and I am so blessed that they chose me to be their photographer. I can’t remember the last shoot where I laughed this much while bossing around two amazing people. It was a good time for sure. I hope you love your engagement photos Nikita and Saurabh! Thank you again for asking me to take them!

Just for fun… [Anna, TX Children’s Portrait Photography]

I am so relieved that my little gal is finally letting me take her picture– and she even smiles…sometimes. In the past, as soon as she saw me with my camera she would either run in the opposite direction, or holler at me to stop taking her picture. So this was huge. Oh and don’t even get me started on how excited I am that she allowed me to put her in something with ruffles, haha! This girl has a mind of her own and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

But don’t get me wrong, this tomboy loves nothing more than getting down and dirty, too. And this is where you will usually find her outside: playing in the dirt.

Class of 2015: Ruthie [Anna, TX Senior Portrait Photography]

Choosing which images to sneak peek was hard with this one. There is something about her– an intensity in her eyes, or the trace of a smile…I just loved them all. I hardly had to give her any direction, which made this session a total breeze. And added bonus– we found some cool new spots to shoot in downtown McKinney that I never would have known existed if not for Ruthie’s familiarity with the location and all the little side-streets and alleys.  Thank you Ruthie for asking me to take your senior portraits. I hope you love them!

The Squad Prom 2015 [Anna, TX Senior Portrait Photographer]

I was so honored that these kiddos asked me to take their before prom pictures. I love seeing them all dressed up and headed out for a fun night of dancing and making memories with their classmates. This was one of the most fun sessions of the year. We had so many different personalities and ideas, so of course things got a little goofy at times, but that’s what I loved most about this session.

Class of 2015: Sydney [Anna, TX Senior Portrait Photographer]

I confess. I was so stressed the day this shoot was supposed to happen. According to the weather forecast, this day was going to be perfect for crawling under the covers and taking a long nap, as you listened to the thunder roll outside and the pitter-patter of rain on the roof. But then…the sun came out. The clouds parted…and I breathed a BIG sigh of relief. SUCCESS! Not only was it a beautiful day to take pictures, but WOW! My subject was STUNNING, y’all. I know I say it a lot (mostly because it’s true), but taking pictures of beautiful people is easy, and this shoot was a piece of cake. Sydney seemed like such an old soul and we hit it off right off the bat. We talked about fashion, Saved By the Bell (ummmm, best show ever!), summer camp– so much randomness, and so much fun! The two hours just flew by.

Sydney, thank you so much for trusting me to document this special time in your life. I hope you can see just how beautiful you are in these portraits. I’m so glad to have met you and your family.:)Enjoy the rest of your senior year!IMG_1441 copyIMG_1444IMG_1483IMG_1486IMG_1504 copyIMG_1638IMG_1670IMG_1686
