Dew Drops – Early Morning Delight – Shiner, TX

When I woke up this morning, I went to swing on the porch with my precious four month old, joining the rest of the family outside since it feels so amazing this time of year! My oldest daughter was helping my lovable two year old pick wildflowers while my six year old climber was in a tree. So then Mr. Cutie Pie, in his not so terrible two’s, proudly brings me this tiny bouquet in his hand saying “Mommy I have a present for you!”

I noticed the dew drops on it and I was immediately inspired to grab my camera and my macro lens, one of my favorite lenses I purchased when starting out about 7 years ago, and went in search of any remaining flowers they hadn’t picked yet! ๐Ÿ˜‰ While searching around the house and property, I dodged the almost invisible spider webs and happened upon this dew covered grass. Now, I don’t know about other people, but I have a thing for grass, for some reason, it brings me a calming, peaceful feeling just looking at it…and Josh is like “it’s just grass, all I think about is having to wait for it to dry so I can mow it…” ๐Ÿ˜‰ Needless to say, I updated my desktop background to this dew covered grass this morning! <3

Well, I was about to just go back inside when I glanced over by my studio (still in progress) and there it was, one single white flower, standing tall. I went over and squatted next to it, trying to keep my balance and keep the camera steady…if you’d ever photographed with a macro lens, you know what I’m talking about, like seriously, don’t breathe! ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyhow, what a pretty little “rain lily” covered in dew drops, it’s even better getting to view it zoomed in all the way. I barely made it back up after squatting for what must have been too long, apparently my legs aren’t what they used to be…man I need to start working out again!

Brittany & Jeremy’s Engagement Session – Witting, TX

We got to meet Brittany and Jeremy, a sweet couple from College Station, last night and photograph their Engagement Session in Witting TX, literally just a few miles down the road from our place, and gosh it was a beautiful evening! They brought their playful pup Harleigh along…isn’t she cute?! Excited for their St. Mary’s Wedding next year! <3 ๐Ÿ˜€

Jessica & Kyle’s Wedding Preview – Pearl City, Yoakum TX

Friday night was such a beautiful evening for Jessica and Kyle’s Wedding Ceremony! Out “in the middle of nowhere” was just as breathtaking to me as the painted churches we get to photograph…the best part of all is always capturing the genuine love our couples have for each other!ย ย 

We were glad Jessica & Kyle asked us to photograph a couple of hours of their Wedding Reception at Turner Hall the day following their beautiful outdoor ceremony…and we saw a lot of familiar faces! What a good looking couple, and gorgeous Jessica in that red dress! I thought their wedding rings were so neat…Kyle’s mom gave him this Texas shaped ring that was his father’s! <3 We really wish we would have been available to stay for the party and hear Kyle’s buddy Kevin play with his band!

This was one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten! Love Andy’s Catering from Shiner, TX! I get super excited when I see Andy Kocian and his son Tim show up to cater a wedding, like Jessica & Kyle’s wedding last Saturday!
