I heart Sharp's Motorsports

I don't normally post things about my personal life in much detail or go very deep here on my blog. There's really not a reason for this other than I hardly have enough time to post sessions and events let alone the book I could write regarding my life as a wife, mother, believer, dork, etc. I felt that this post was needed though...so here goes! :)

As you all know, Jeremy has left Sharp's. I think that I may have hurt a feeling or two by the way I worded something in my last post regarding his departure. When I said "Can I get a Hallelujah?", it had nothing to do w/ Sharp's or the people there. Jeremy worked there for 6+ years and was shown extreme favor by Rick, Keevin, and Alvin. To say that Jeremy was blessed in that place and by that place would be an understatement. His leaving was on very good terms and we hope to continue the relationships that were built over the years with everyone there. We are so excited about Jeremy's departure b/c we know that it is in God's plan for our lives (we spent months praying and seeking about this). Another huge reason is that Jeremy has never really stepped out in total and complete faith knowing that our precious Lord is going to take care of him and his family. Please know that I am not speaking for Jeremy by saying this...he would be the first to tell you this (plus he knows I'm writing this post). ;) Jeremy was so terrified of leaving Sharp's before having another job to go right into that he put off putting in his two weeks for months. I remember the first time the people in our church life group voiced that they thought Jeremy should step out in faith and quit...it was like 12 or more weeks ago. Like I said, we have been praying and seeking the Lord in this for a long time! So I can not tell you how amazing, exciting, stellar, rad it is to see my husband take that leap of faith and put complete and total trust in the Lord!

With all of that said, I hope I didn't offend anyone that works or shops at Sharp's (and I'm deeply sorry if I did). I'm just so excited about the unknown. I can not wait to see where the Lord places Jeremy next and the level at which He propels him spiritually! These are exciting times and we are growing so much in the Lord right now not to mention this has been great for our marriage!

Jeremy does not have a job right now nor does he have one 100% lined up. However, there is a job/place he is talking to and hoping for. In the mean time he is taking some much need time off. We are also going to take a couple of small family roadtrips, learn how to live on a budget, and I'm gonna be his sugar momma...lol. :) Funny story: we paid for Sonic drinks the other day w/ the spare change that we dug out of my purse, car, and Jeremy's pockets (I didn't want to pay $2-something w/ my debit card) and had a good laugh about how we did that when we were first married. Seriously, we didn't eat unless we had spare change hanging around b/c we were stupid with our money and new-found "freedom" in being grown-ups (which just meant that our bank account was almost always at zero or in the negative). I should probably mention that we got married very young (I was 19) so we didn't have any life experience to know better. We were just stupid kids...haha! :)

See, I told you I could write a book about my life! Keep us in your prayers and refer ALL of your friends and family members to us for their photography and graphic design needs...hehe. ;) Peace+Love!



I have been so swamped I have had like no time at all to add all of the super fun products I offer to my shopping cart. But I FINALLY did it y'all! :) So head over there...run don't walk...and check it out (go to my website, click on Client Log-In, then click on Products).

In other news, Jeremy doesn't work at Sharp's anymore! Can I get a hallelujah?!?! We are stepping out in faith b/c we know that God has something bigger and much better in store for him (details on that coming soon!). In the mean time Jeremy is being a super fab hubby and working for/with me this month! He is also in the middle of a ton of design projects (click on the link to the right to see his on-line portfolio) and playing his sweet heart out at church every weekend. Not to mention I have him doing like a million projects around the house. :) Who knew that not having a job could be so exhausting...haha.

I have two stellar weddings this weekend: Keely+Kyle and Micah+John. This is the biggest weekend of my wedding season! Check back soon for more photos from this summers weddings and sessions. Until then...




I had the pleasure of photographing Hunter a couple of Sundays ago. He had just endured a long car ride back home from a trip with him Mommy. He was a little cranky at the beginning of our time together but as soon as his Daddy showed up he was the happiest little boy I have ever seen. We had fun playing peek a boo and spinning on the merry-go-round. It's cute kiddos like this that make me think about having another baby. Wait...did I just say that out loud? ;) Here are some of my favorites from Hunter's session.

Btw, one of these days I WILL post photos from the many weddings I have yet to blog. If you'll notice the only time I get to blog anything is when I really should be sleeping. But who needs sleep??? :) Peace+Love.



I had so much fun with Lex and Leah! They came from Lubbock to have me shoot their super rad maternity session. I was pumped that they wanted to do a big long session instead of the typical half naked maternity shots indoors (although we did get some absolutely fabulous photos of that type, too). Leah is such a cute preggo and I loved the way Lex just couldn't keep his hands off of Leah's tummy. Again, I had SO MUCH FUN w/ this couple! I told my husband that if they lived in Amarillo we would totally be like bff's...lol. :) Thanks for a stellar time you guys! I am excited to meet little miss Annerson in September!



I am so behind in posting this summer's fabulous weddings. :( Between weddings, maternity sessions, bridals, engagements, album design, chasing a two year old around, and making some serious life decisions with my hubby (he quit his job :) Yay!!!)...I just haven't had time to keep my blog updated. I will try to go back and blog the sessions and weddings I have missed but in the mean time here are just a few fun images from Staci & Clay's wedding on the 5th. Staci & Clay have been a blast to work with. I'll see you guys in a couple of weeks at Keely's wedding! Peace+Love.
A few details...


Some grainy flairy fun...


Vacation::Biltmore Estate

More pictures from my recent vacation to the Biltmore Estate with Ella, my mom, sisters, and nephew. Click here to see my previous post about my trip. I have TONS of pictures and might share more soon so check back! Peace+Love.

Silly car-ride pictures. :)

Ella at the Biltmore Estate farm yard. This little girl LOVES animals so much she didn't know what to do with herself here. She introduced herself to the horse and it proceeded to try and lick her face off with it's ginormous tongue. She laughed and said, "Silly horsey". She held a baby chick and was so excited she looked like she was in a trance. Haha...I love my Ella!

The farm made her sleepy.

The front door of the Biltmore House. This place is HUGE!

There are statues all over the estate. I am always amazed at the great condition they are in...especially being well over 100 years old.

We let the kids throw goldfish crackers in the reflecting pools for the fish. I'm pretty sure we're not supposed to do that though. :)
