It's only fitting that I kick off this week with a senior session. Most college graduations were this past weekend and I would like to say congratulations to all who were able to walk across that stage! It's such a great feeling after years of hard work. Carleigh and her family lived right across the street from Derek and his family growing up. It is awesome that they have all kept in touch and I was able to do some photos to celebrate Carleigh's big accomplishment. We walked around the UNT campus for a bit, and I realized how much has changed since I've been there. After our nostalgic stroll we went to the square in Denton, and I realized how many great photo ops are there. Downtowns are usually great for photos, but the square in Denton always has new gems to find. Here are some of my favorites of this beautiful grad:
Her cap is the prettiest cap I've ever seen!
I adore these next couple of photos. I wish I had this idea a few years ago when I graduated!
I love her boots!

Those of you who know me well know that I'm a big nerd at heart. I'm an artist through photography and a scientist fueled by curiosity. My nerdiness is something I share with Dawn. I love bacteria, she loves bugs. We became close friends while working together in a lab, and I'm so glad that our paths crossed. She is so fun and loving, and will brighten any room in minutes. I got to meet Drew at our company Christmas party, and I could see right away how these two love birds get along so well. They are both so funny and laid back. Spending time with them during their engagement session was wonderful, and I found myself laughing almost the whole way through. I'm so excited for their upcoming wedding! It's going to be so much fun, and yet a classy event at the same time. Here are just a few of my many favorites from our time together:
I love the next few photos... with their babies Goose and Maverick. They got dressed up too
Goose and Maverick were wonderful models!
LOVE session outtakes... I think that should have it's own blog post!
And of course, Dawn found a bug.
Thanks to Dawn and Drew for a session full of laughs! I can't wait until your wedding... it's going to be a blast!!!!

About 20 years ago I started playing soccer because word on the street was each player got a free drink at the concession stand after each game. Word on the street was true, but it also turned out that soccer was fun and I got to meet some great friends. The friends that I met while playing soccer are still to this day some of my closest friends. Through elementary school, middle school, awkward transition times, breakups, successes, and those crazy college years, Monica and I have remained friends. Her friendship is dear to my heart and to be the one to capture her wedding day is an honor I can't describe with words. When I got to meet Scott, I knew right away that Monica had found "him". The one she was meant to be with. My heart was so happy to see them together and their wedding day couldn't arrive fast enough. When the day finally arrived, I was giddy. Like a little girl on Christmas eve. Not only was it an exciting day for Monica and Scott, but I was also thrilled to be photographing a wedding again! It had been about 9 months since I had shot a wedding and I was ready to get back into the game! This wedding could not have been more perfect as a jumping off point. The couple, wedding party, venue, and details were all fantastic. Everything about this wedding makes me smile. I found my cheeks hurting after hours of editing because each image made me smile. Without too much chatter, I will get down to the main attraction. Here are my favorites from this amazing wedding day:
A best friend leading a bride to her soon to be husband
I just love first looks!
Monica was such a stunning bride
One of my favorite wedding party photos of all time
Just a few laughs before the ceremony
Monica's cousin prayed before the ceremony, and it was a beautiful moment
Ava did a wonderful job as flower girl!
My husband, the impromtu fireman. A petal went haywire and caught fire.
LOVE this image!
Now there is a HAPPY groom!
The newlywed game was so much fun
I'm a huge sucker for Daddy Daughter dances
Everyone voted for Scott to receive cake in the face
And then the dance competition got serious
It came down to a "hammer-time" dance off
Last dances with only the bride and groom are a perfect way to end a perfect evening
Thank you to Monica and Scott for allowing me to be a part of your amazing wedding!
