Wednesday Doesn’t Rhyme with Anything {July 4th}

As it’s turning out, maybe I’m only doing the Wednesday thing every other week ūüėČ I know I won’t post one next week as I’ll be on vacation. Maybe later on I’ll get a better hang of it and it will become a weekly publication. Until then…..This week’s¬†topic was pretty easy to decide on.¬† Buuuutt, to spice things up today instead of highlighting several shops I’m going to post snapshots of Etsy Treasuries by other members in a July 4th theme. Confused??…just scroll down.

Happy 4th to all of you!

Katy M.

This girl is so darn sweet! I wanted to post a couple sneak peeks from our session last night, boy was it hard to narrow it down!! unfortunately (and for Texas, fortunately) a storm was approaching just as we were getting started, no pretty sunset. Soooo we are going for round two this evening to catch some golden rays! Miss Katy is an aspiring model and asked me to help get her portfolio started to send to agencies. Isn’t that so exciting!!! She worked the camera like a pro let me tell ya!

Little Cal’s Sneak Peek

Since beginning my photography journey I have had the most fun being able to photograph my dear friends’ children. The fact that they trust me and hire me to do so is such an honor!! I’d like to introduce to you, Mr. Calvin, 1 month old.

These are done under my Creme de la Creme newborn sessions that are $165. This particular session was done in the client’s home using natural light. I find it’s easier for mom and baby when I’m the one traveling to them. All baby’s things are there and mom doesn’t have to pack up the nursery!! However, I do newborn sessions at my small studio space in Weatherford as well. I’d love to discuss your little arrival¬†with¬†you, so please see all my¬†information under the Contact tab!!


I know, I know…

…it’s Friday and I don’t have my “Wednesday Doesn’t Rhyme with Anything” Etsy post. I’ve been thinking about it and I’ve got all the info and pics ready to go, just need to type it up. I’ll try my best to have it up in the next day or so!!!
