Prom! It is such a magical time!  I was lucky to be asked to photograph these seniors on their special night. Randolph High School Seniors met at the La Cantera Resort for Prom Portraits. There was so much excitement in the air to see each girl arrive in their beautiful prom dresses. The girls wore such gorgeous gowns in colors of purple, pink, turquoise, black and white.  It was so fun to see them swirling around in their pretty dresses, we just had to capture the moment in photos and video. It was so obvious these girls had spent so much time and effort on their hair and makeup and special elegant dresses and looked amazing. Each dress was so special and unique to to their personality that I was sure to capture every detail of the front and back in special poses that brought your attention to these details. And of course this stylish young man looks peak in his blue suit and pink tie. The location was so gorgeous casting a beautiful glow of sunshine framing each of the girls. Moments they can remember forever.

Randolph High School Senior Juliana posed for her Senior Portraits at the La Cantera Resort in San Antonio. She looked "pretty in Pink " in this beautiful pale pink gown and a very grown up chic updo hairstyle. We captured great detail shots of her beautiful gown with the intricate strapping in the back and her sparkly formal heels. But the most special detail of the day was the diamond studded "R" in her floral corsage in loving memory of someone very special and dear to her heart.  The La Cantera was a gorgeous location with the natural light streaming through there big windows. We also captured family photos for special memories of the day at La Cantera. Julian will be attending Texas State University, and we wish her all the best!

I had no idea what a fun adventure I had begun. I took portraits of her at the stables with three gorgeous Georgian Grand Horses. She wore two western themed outfits with riding pants.  The horses were so loving and gentle! The horses were Major 17.2 hands high and look at how grand at 8 years old.  Lyra at 16.3 hands high at 7 years old, and Orion at 18.0 hands and 5 years old.

 I loved watching and capturing the nuances of the horses personality, expressions and their loving spirit. Linda never lost a smile throughout the entire portrait session as she looked lovingly into the horses faces. She was surrounded by 4,323 total pounds of love

She has always loved dancing and being physically active. She is also the sweetest, most outgoing, most determined girl that you will ever meet.

Photographing Ashley was such a pleasure. We had so much fun scouting out great locations. She is always so well put together and has such fabulous style. Those beautiful eyes and that gorgeous hair makes her look simply stunning in every image. Ashley is such a natural in front of the camera she made my job so easy.

I am just a native Texas girl, but my dream came true for a destination portrait session for a Parisian woman in Paris, France!


I styled our destination summer session in Paris with the backdrops of the beautiful streets, majestic bridges, charming cafes and, of course, the Eiffel Tower! Together we planned her magazine styled session and styled her wardrobe to be full glamour choosing red as our statement color to enhance her beauty and make her feel confident, bright, and bold from her red lips to her red stockings. It was an amazing experience and I made a beautiful friend for life.


                                                                                 Bon Voyage!

Winston Churchill High School Senior/Pearl Brewery/San Antonio 

Winston Churchill High School Senior, Patrick Elizondo is a very accomplished young man.  Patrick is heading to Baylor University this fall to pursue a degree in Engineering.  His tireless energy, great sense of style, and great smile made our time together awesome and our images pretty amazing too. His parents were so supportive and sweet, that I felt so comfortable around them as if I known them my whole life. I am sure Patrick is heading for great success in his future.

This amazing couple, Danny and Jackie Gomez, are so excited to be expecting their first child. I had the pleasure to photograph and document this amazing special time in their life together.  Jackie makes pregnancy look so glamorous. She just glows cradling her their precious little girl to be. I loved seeing how Danny just dotes after his wife and soon to be mother of his child. Danny recently expressed  " I can't wait to see everything that is so amazing about you in our little girl."  Francesca will be the name of their baby girl that is due early January.  What a perfect name for this little girl as the name Francesca means "french" and this couple were married in New Orleans at the beautiful Terrell House Bed and Breakfast.

Our maternity session started on a cloudy gloomy Sunday, but this couple were certainly glowing with love and excitement over the arrival of their little bundle of joy. Our session started on the porch and grounds of the San Antonio Landa Library then on to the San Antonio Botanical Gardens.  Jackie wore this opulent rich plum fitted gown to and Danny in these cool shades of gray.  These colors will definitely complement  the decor and colors of the nursery which are pink and gray.  Every detail has been planned to perfection waiting for this little girl's arrival. This baby will be loved.

       The Pearl Brewery/Custom Styled Fall Session/San Antonio 

San Antonio's Historic Pearl Brewery district was the backdrop to our outdoor child session today.  The industrial-chic motif along with the historic vintage original brewery dating back to 1881 seemed to set his style. And this boy has plenty of style. This custom styled fall session displayed the colors of fall with browns, rust, golds, and a pop of color green. These old massive boilers containing vegetables and lettuces kept with our color scheme complementing that perfect pop of color in his tie and sweater. This beautiful boy's relaxed style and perfect posing make him total hip and rocking this industrial styled session.
