The Hall/McCollum Family :: Extended Family Session

Several years ago, I was able to attend an event hosted by Kerygma Ventures (Successful Christian Living Ministries at the time) and was so blessed by the heart of this ministry.  Since then, I have kept close tabs on this ministry, and have loved seeing how God has worked through this ministry in a myriad of ways.  I also have been so blessed to have a chance to develop a friendship with the family behind the ministry, and they are fabulous!!  I had the pleasure of taking Karis and Brian’s engagement pictures (check out the love birds here!), so when she asked me about taking pictures of the whole extended family, I was so excited!  Check out what is going on with this fabulous ministry at www.kerygmaventures.com!

Madison :: Senior Session

Natalie has been a dear friend of mine since I was in college.  She is the kind of lady that speaks truth in such a gentle and loving way that it completely disarms people.  She has walked through many seasons with me, and I know that the Lord has used her greatly in shaping different parts of my heart!!

Natalie also has a rock star daughter who is just absolutely breathtaking! Madison is one of the sweetest girls I have met, and it has been so fun watching her grow up into such a striking lady who loves the Lord with all her heart!!  She is going to take Texas Tech by storm!!

Jeremy & Deanna :: Engagement Session

I love engagement sessions!!  I so enjoy getting to meet couples who are in love and all starry-eyed, and this couple is a perfect example!!  We had so much fun experimenting with settings and poses, and I so enjoyed our time together!  Jeremy was so attentive to his fiance and it is extremely obvious how much they care about each other.  I am so excited to see their story unfold!

Adams & Hicks :: Family Session

Susie and I have known each other forever, and I am so incredibly grateful for the gift of her friendship!  When she told me that she needed new family pictures with her son and daughter-in-law, I knew we would all have a blast together!  Honestly, I have never laughed so hard during a photo session!!  What a joy to be with a family that so loves and enjoys each other!!

Brian & Karis :: Grapevine Engagements

Karis is one of those women that once you meet her, you never forget her.  Her sweet disposition and compassionate heart just melt me every time I am around her, and I am so grateful for the influence she has had on my life.  I knew that when she met her Prince Charming, he would be fantastic, because fantastic is what she deserves.  When I met Brian, I just knew he was perfect for her!

I am always so amazed at how God can orchestrate such beauty in relationships, and Brian and Karis are no exception.  They compliment each other so well, and it is so fun to see how much they just enjoy being together!!

The Earl/Bernhardt Family :: Extended Family Session

I love it when families get together and really enjoy each other’s company, and this family knows how to celebrate their time together!  Heidi had shared with me that they wanted some updated family pictures together, and I always jump at the chance to spend time with them, so it was definitely a win-win for us all! After the Cox family session, we were able to capture pictures of the whole gang, as well as a few of Heidi’s brother and sister’s family.  Such a fabulous family!!!

The Coxs:: Family Session

I love Danny and Heidi, and when they expanded their family with the addition of Ella, we all were excited to be honorary aunts and uncles!  This is Ella’s first Christmas, and what better way to celebrate with a fun family session in downtown McKinney, which is all decked out for Christmas…Charles Dickens’ style!
