Halloween! {Child Photographer – Midland & Odessa, TX}

Had my annual Halloween pictures with my girls! We had Twilight Sparkle from My Little Ponies and Sofia the First from Disney. I made both their costumes this year. I sewed the Sofia skirt and crafted the unicorn ears and horns. A friend made the iron on decals for me, saving me a bunch of time! I am really liking the way they both turned out and the most important part is the girls love their costumes.

Hope everybody has a safe and Happy Halloween!


Baby Z :) {Newborn Photographer – Midland & Odessa, TX}

I was thrilled when my neighbor asked me to take her new baby girls newborn pictures!  I absolutely adore the way they turned out.  I got to try out a few new props too as well as some cute headbands her mommy had from her two older sisters!  A week later, we had a sisters mini session.  Both girls just loved holding their new baby sister.

WIldflowers in West Texas! {Family and Child Photographer – Midland & Odessa, TX}

Before we moved to Midland, I followed several Texas based photographers on Facebook and they all take bluebonnet pictures.  After we moved here, I looked and saw that this particular flower is not native to our very hot West Texas climate, and is mainly located in wild fields on the eastern half of the state.  Much to my surprise and delight, a house that we often pass had planted wildflowers outside their fence line.  Included in these wildflowers was a patch of lovely Bluebonnet looking flowers!  If I can’t have the real thing, these would be a wonderful substitute.   I have been eying these flowers, trying to figure out the best time to go would be.  My oldest daughter decided two nights ago was the night, so off we drove with a trike and little chair in hand!

Go Cards Wedded Bliss {Wedding Photographer – Midland and Odessa, TX}

This St Louis, MO wedding was held during one of the World Series games.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day.   The ceremony and the couple were beautiful, but the last picture taken for the night was of all the guests waiting with bated breath as the Cards pull out a win!  You certainly can’t tell this couple are huge Cardinal’s fans 🙂  They also had a St Louis Cards and St Louis Blues baseball caps as the grooms cake.   Go Cards!
