just one.

 i’m pretty sure this little one belongs on the cover of a magazine. from her big brown eyes to her perfectly messy hair…not to mention her headband and dress. wow.

Do you remember?

Do you remember when there was green in San Angelo? When the sun warmed you and wind was a welcome breeze? Before the ice and snow and crazy non-Texas weather froze us all? Well, that’s when this shoot was…It was a beautiful warm day spent photographing an equally warm and beautiful family…

I adore this shot..sweet baby expressions. :)

three years in a row...

 This was my third session with these adorable siblings. I love them so. They have this brotherly sisterly love that just amazes me. I’ve loved seeing them grow over the years. And I hope I get to for many many more years…

one more post for today.

 This lovely senior was so very easy to photograph because, well, she’s just cute as can be and came with a car full of super cute clothes! It’s becoming kind of detrimental to my pocketbook to photograph highschool seniors. I have such a strong desire to go shopping after their shoots! :)

I desperately seriously want this colorful dress. Like crazy bad. :)

I heart this shot. lots.

gotta start somewhere!

 I, Jenny, haven’t posted in well, like 10 million years. Crystal has done far better with the blog updation, but I have failed miserably! And, see, what happens when I don’t post forever and ever yet I’m still having shoot after shoot after shoot, I  get so backed up, I don’t know how to ever catch up again. And then it snowballs into this huge overwhelming thing and I sit at my computer and wonder, “How did I ever let this happen?” It’s all very dramatic. :) So, I just decided I’d go back through and try (please take notice of the word try) to post a few of the sessions from the distant past until eventually, maybe, just maybe, I would catch back up to the present time. So…enjoy!

First up, this adorably sweet beautiful couple who just tied the knot a few weekends ago!

maybe my favorite shot in a while…

Hailee was from Abilene, so we took advantage of her trip to San angelo and did her bridals as well. She was ridiculously beautiful and elegantly classic in her gown. And I swooned over the feathers in her hair. perfection.

i’ve had a vision for a while of taking pictures on a tree-lined street with all the pretty fall colors. i think we found it! jenny came along and captured my vision perfectly!
