Callie is one of those seniors that makes me feel old! This lovely lady is my husband’s cousin and was maybe 7 years old when I first met her, so the fact that she is somehow already a senior in high school doesn’t seem possible! Yet here we are! I am so honored that they […]

We did Jacob’s session out at Argyle which is starting to pop that fall “yellow” color! (YAY!) We had a great time highlighting Jacob’s passion for hunting, being […]

Senior season continues! We have had a lot of seniors in front of our camera these last couple months, but we can’t complain about that since seniors are our favorite!
