I’m struggling to find the right words for this session. It seems that when I’m writing about someone so dear to my heart, I can’t even find the words to describe what I feel. Shameela and I have been friends for 6 years. She was my first REAL friend that I made after moving here and it took me over a year to find her. When I say real friend, I mean the one that you can call day or night, tears or laughter and know that she will know the right thing to say or know when to say nothing at all. The friend that doesn’t judge, just loves. And even as I write this, I’m thanking my lucky stars that I have that kind of friend. Of course, since I feel so strongly about this girl and think so highly of her, there were no guys that quite measured up to what she deserved….except this one.:)Chuck is everything I ever imagined for her. Strong, yet sensitive, open and thoughtful, absolutely adores her and…he’s a musician. ­čśë If you know Sham, you know that it just wouldn’t make sense for her to meet “the one” and him not be an artist. I remember going to visit her one day and she shared with me a poem she had recently written that was inspired by her relationship with Chuck- (not only is this girl a fabulous friend and beautiful person, she’s also a very gifted poet and writer). I remember reading this poem and being brought to tears. I looked up from it, smiled, and said “I’m just so happy for you!” Everything in it shined with this new joy she had found and it was all brought about by this wonderful, loving relationship. Any of you with great friends know how much it means to see your friend who you love so happy with someone. And now, I’m so honored to have been able to capture a piece of that with my camera.

We planned this session for a couple of months and when the day came it was cold, rainy and foggy. Any of you who follow my work regularly know that my specialty is typically beautiful, golden sun backlighting the scene. We didn’t have that, but decided to push forward, one because there weren’t any other times in the near future to do this and two because the love between these guys is so special that it just warms everything up on it’s own (cheesy, but totally true!) So, here are my friends. I love you. You mean the world to me. Keep being happy.:)

    Shauna - I really dig these Teresa. You totally captured who these two are as a couple. And I love his jacket and hat, true vintage vibe :)ReplyCancel

When my friend Kelly with Sweet Pea Events emailed me to see if I was available for a client of hers, she told me I’d love them and that they were super laid back and sweet. Well, sign me up! And when I met with Jen and Taylor, they were exactly that. Laid back, sweet, obviously crazy about each other and fun! Since all of these are words that I like to hear or say when describing the people I work with, I really could not have asked for a better couple to work with

Taylor and his family have a lot of history in Grapevine, which happens to be one of my favorite places to take photos, so it worked out perfectly and this was a backdrop that is very special to these guys. I loved that Jen and Taylor laughed the whole time and were really awesome in front of the camera! There are so many romantic photos here!! Thank you, Jen and Taylor! You guys are awesome:)

It’s 2013!!! I am so excited for this year and I just know it’s going to be spectacular! Do you even just feel that way? You just know and feel that something is going to be absolutely amazing? That’s exactly how I feel about this year and I can’t wait to share it with all the wonderful people I will work with and meet this year. So, let’s get the ball rolling with a fresh new blog post, shall we? First up is a super sweet, fun and in love couple….

I had such a great time on this session with these guys! Sunhea and Joseph were so sweet and funny! The best part is that they really make each other laugh. We were downtown, surrounded by strangers, but for these two, there was no one else in the world. I love couples in love.:)

This blog post has a not-entirely-accurate title. This is not all encompassing because if I were to truly do a blog post of my favorite images from an entire year, it would be pages long. So, I’ve chosen the images that have stood out the most to me as what I think are 1) reflective of the style of work I do and the type of image/mood I like to capture 2) have beautiful or interesting light in some way or other and 3) that step outside of the box sometimes of what I would “normally” do. So, these are not about which clients were my favorites, because that would make no sense either since I absolutely adore ALL of my clients!:)

This was a lot of fun for me! It forced me to look at what I truly LOVE about an image. I also realized in choosing these that I am very attracted to my black and white photos. There is just something moody and drawing about them. I love the simplicity of a black and white. No distraction from the moment or subject, just the beauty of the people and the moment.

2012 was an absolutely FANTASTIC year! I am so glad I took the time to go through and relive it and revisit each of my clients and their stories. How truly blessed I have been to work with such kind, honest, generous and loving people. Every person I have worked with this year has been a joy and my life has been made richer by them. Thank you all for bringing me into your lives and I hope we will continue to be in touch and share moments together.:)
