WHY am I not having specials or discounts today? :)

Because there are AMAZING things ahead for the dreams of my business in 2012.  I aim to give TIME to you....for ALWAYS an amazing price.  I am spending the rest of my year gearing up for the dreams that are ahead...and the things on my list that need to happen.  I cannot wait to share them with you as time goes.  I am excited to meet the future people that I can share my passions with.  The faces I'll capture, the moments I'll embrace.

If you are needing ANY kind of portraits right now, I have just a few slots left in December. :)

For those of you that participated in the EYES project, keep a look out - this is going to start happening soon.  I still need to secure a gallery to show at, but first - I must get the pieces completed. :)  Stay tuned for THAT!!!! You are going to love it, I just know it. :)

Meanwhile, if you are someone you know are getting married or are about to get engaged!  Please have them contact me for my package for their wedding day.  :)  I have some more amazing stories coming up in 2012 that I cannot wait to capture!!!!! 

I look forward to hearing more amazing stories this next year...and meeting some of the coolest people in the world, yes YOU. :)

Take care, and talk soon!

Inside Portrait : The Artist.

i've noticed....while most seem to jump into the flow....i seem to want to swim against it.....and make my own way. lol. I dunno - I move slower than most...but what I do - has meaning to me now. I fail and succeed. But, mostly succeed.
because failure does lead to success.
some may call it stubborn, but what i see it as now....I want to know what i'm doing and WHY. I don't want to blindly "copy" things to get where I'm going.

i still have my many seas of doubts...but in the end...i'm free, i love...and i learn...i think if i ever stopped learning and growing, i would be in "failure" mode. The light is green. So I'm GOING! :)

I'm thankful for all of you. 
I'm thankful for my husband.
I'm thankful that I have a life to live, and a creative gift to explore.
I'm thankful for quiet times.
I'm thankful for crazee times.
(inside and out) 
I'm thankful for forgivness.
I'm thankful for redemption.

A wedding summed up, in HEART sparklers.

Hey I thought it was super cool, these sparklers were heart-shaped.
But more than that, I think it FITS with the whole theme of this wedding.
We all had a little SPARKLE that nite. :)

From the surprise, Princess Bride, 20's themed costume party turned wedding day.:)

A fun-filled weekend! HIGHLIGHTS here!

So! I had a fun fun fun filled weekend with a TRIPLE action packed wedding weekend.  This normally doesn't happen to me, actually it is rare. My professional goal usually, is to stay at one a month..... :)  However, with the weddings that came my way this weekend - it was a plan that fell in place with such precision, that I could not help but surrender to it all and embrace the challenges and most of all the LOVE that came out of these events. :)


A long time friend of married.  It was a true celebration of finding love and committing love...before all to see.  I was fortunate to be called up to shoot the wedding and meet the man she would spend the rest of her life with.  We went to Biz school together (CTI Business) , so I have a fondness and a story with this lovely woman!  I would like to say congrats to Kabinda, my friend.

A quick picture of them together (L) and her getting ready and adjusting the veil (R)

Another long time friend of the family. ;)  I'm very fond of! I got the call one day...about a secret wedding...NOT to be shared with anyone til the day of.  It was masked underneath a birthday party...and later I found out - a costume party. :)  So everyone was AMAZED when we walked in...and there stood the officiant, the bride and groom, best "Maam"....and MOH. :)  There were gasps...squeals...tears....and I actually hope to share their entire story with you.  I could not stop tearing up.  How is one supposed to take pictures and cry? :)  Congrats....Nathan and Kathy. :) This is the video of the will be coming soon .... :)  The video is important - because of the VOWS.  Take a listen. :)

Kellie found me through a sometimes hit and miss channel in craigslist.  I love surprises like this.  She and her family were so welcoming and fun.  They were partying it up out at the La Cantera ranch...and the weather, while chilly, was quite amazing.  We had a super overcast of cloud cover with just enough time and NO thunderstorms!!!!...and it was gorgeously beautiful and fast. :)  Thanks to her and all the friends & family for having so much fun.  We truly enjoyed our time!  Congrats to Jason & Kellie!!!!  And thank you for the lucky bamboo!!!!!
The announcment! Mr & Mrs (here comes the bouquet) (L) -

Thanks again, to all the friends & family of all the couples.  You helped make their day VERY SPECIAL!!!!!
I could tell in each event, LOVE was present in all the greatest forms!!!
Lots of smiles and laughter. :)

Until next time...............

Engagement Art.

Herez some ART for a recent engagement session! :)  fun times. :)

Kindof a mishmash of stairs. 

Architecture and color overload - I didn't really change THAT much of the original coloring.  But the blends brought out new things, as always. :)

And couch FOR THE WIN!

There are days...where things seem to come together...after many years...of collecting and using pieces of furniture that did their part.  I gave away 2 couches this past week...and left myself open to receive a new one.  Actually, I received more than that!  I was dreaming of a couch with legs...but I did not dream up this FANTASTIC shape...or COLOR!!!! WOW!  I'm a fan of what I call "Blue Man Blue"...or sometimes called Cobalt Blue.  It really truly is an amazing shade of blue, made just for me.  Colorful, bright and homey.  It is a little sectional couch, and all together probably about 8ft long - but apart pretty easy to manuever.

I made a quick stop downtown after having a late nite inspiration search online and on Facebook.  I found this couch on a website that I had seen the previous couple of weeks, but THIS couch was not on there. :)  I needed something multi-functional - and able to be used as a prop for photography - at my leisure.  This double win came as a big surprise...and def. a huge blessing.

These 2 you CANNOT find at Ikea...not even close.  Matter of fact, Ikea's cheapest couch is maybe $300 or so....and the 2 of these together were a great price, even on sale. :)  AMAZING.  They definitely have been loved and used, but still remain in really good structure and soundness.  I'm excited to present to you....a more "finished" look for my living room/studio. :) 

My car is filled to the brim with Cobalt Blue Couch!!!!
Fabulous vintage find at a local Dallas place..."sectional"
Using my 13yr old 1950's lamps as accessories, plus my lovely glass decanter.  I have bought various objects over the years, and it is really really NEAT to see them all come together in the matter of a day.

The wooden cube came from my previous full-time which as we were downsizing, extra furniture was being tossed out.  I had ALWAYS loved that cube.  Well, that was 2008 when I got laid off and I got to take it home!!!!  It has been in a corner and un-used since 08.   The lamp is a twin from a find in Paris TX in 1998.  It was the year I saw Titanic for the first time...and these lamps have traveled EVERYWHERE with me since 98 and have survived!  They never really "fit in" per say - but at the heart of it - they are totally my style and I was ALWAYS in love w/ the lampshades!!!!  I also added the little glass decanter, because I bought that also many years ago.  Probably in Oklahoma somewherz, because in 1999 I lived in the Adair/Tulsa area and often found cool things to buy.  I probably bought it there. :)  But it was not the whopping $40 that I see ppl charging for it - it was like $8. :)  Definitely a great find in my wild life of moving.

I said all of this to say.
In one day, all these pieces I've had for years - made sense. :) 
I was envisioning the completed project in which I could make various scenarios from these couches...leaving room for creativity and fun.  I'm in awe that God hears and knows our simplest desires to illustrate a point.  He is out there, and if we let him - he will be a part of our life and live through our every joy and our every moment of despair. :) Thank you God! U are awesome. :)

And yes, even when couch shopping. :)
