Natalie + Devyn | College Station Couples Session

These two were so much fun to photograph! Natalie and Devyn are pretty much naturals in front of the camera, and I loved that they made each other laugh the entire time I photographed them. Those smiles are genuine, y'all! I love the moody romantic contrast of the final images from their session. The sun was just about to go down, and even though I usually prefer the brighter, happier sunshine that appears an hour or so before sunset, I can't help but love the feeling that light helped create in the last few images. 

Special thanks to Leanna Duran of Naturally Flawless for doing an amazing job on Natalie's makeup!

Ben + Ashley | College Station Couples Session

 

Say hello to one of my favorite sessions from 2016. Ashley emailed me asking if I'd be interested in photographing her, her boyfriend, Ben, and their pup, Bear as a gift for their families for Christmas and to have professional photos together to celebrate their relationship before Ben moved to El Paso for work. Her email was so warm and friendly, and I could just tell how excited she was to have these photos of their little family. How could I say yes fast enough was my initial thought? After a bit of planning, we met up at Lick Creek Park on a gooorgeous November day (hello beautiful sunshine), and had such a great time finding perfect little spots and watching Bear romp around in his natural habitat. These two are mad for each other and I loved that about them. Their personalities just fit, and they are so comfortable together, which makes my job literally the easiest thing in the world. 

Also, how adorable is Bear?! He's like a walking teddy bear, and he's so darn photogenic. I think he may get it from his parents. ;) 

I'm so excited to be sharing these, so I hope you guys enjoy!

Darren + Brooke | Maternity Session at Arbor Hill Nature Preserve

751e2-img.jpg
 

I've known Brooke + Darren for about six years now, and their relationship has always been such a blessing to watch throughout the years. First to know them as high school sweethearts dating in college, then to watch them get engaged and shortly there after married, and now to see them in this time of growth and joy as they prepare to become parents for the first time, it's so amazing to be able to be a small part of those life stages. I was so excited when Brooke asked me if I'd be interested in doing their maternity session after they announced they were expecting! We were blessed with some of the best sunshine, and Brooke just glowed throughout the entire session (not to mention Darren was a total gentlemen and loved on Brooke soo much)! I can't wait to meet their precious baby girl who will be here in December. Congrats you guys! You and your families are so special to me, and Curtis and I are so excited for all that is to come!
