Im in LOVE with white pumpkins.

I'm a summer girl. I love summer. I mean I dont just like it, I LIVE FOR IT. I have always thought that summer was just a magical time. As a kid when the school doors opened and they set us free from Labor Day to Memorial Day so much magic happened! Barefoot, sleeping in, sleeping outside under the stars (in our backyard in our sleeping bags), riding bikes all day. Going to the American Legion swimming pool from 1-6 Every day all summer. Vacations to the mounatins and the Oasis in west Texas  BALMORHEA State Park near Pecos and Marfa.  Carefree, days on the porch swing eating popsicles.... then fall came and it was back to school and getting up early and cold and snow and rain and ugh.

Now that I'm older ,i am starting to appreciate Fall. Its a respite from the heat (I now live near Houston and let me tell you the HUMIDITY is UNREAL!) The humidity goes down, you can sit outside, the bugs dissappear and the hummingbirds play.  I watch the Monarchs flying South, i watch the geese and ducks flying south and I can nap in the hammock and enjoy the lower temps that feel like Southern California or Hawaii. Weather in the 70s and low 80s. ahhhh.

So anyway living in a "Beachy" house on a lake just an hour from the Texas Coast, I didn't want to do ORANGE and Black decorations. Or Even Orange. I want to strech the summer out a bit, and i stumbled upon some great Pintrest boards with WHITE PUMPKINS! WHO KNEW? WHITE? I love everything white. Our Great room is 95% white. I love white HORSES, WHITE Furniture, White Rugs. white bathroom and kitchen tile. ALBINO Animals (Don't get me started on White Barn Owls, or Albino anythings... White is just MAJESTIC) so when I saw these WHITE Pumpkins at HEB (ok they are bit yellowish white) I knew they were mine.  and after perusing about 100 Pintrest boards with white pumpkins I came up with this centerpiece.

I love it. I have laundry to do, dusting and cleaning before hubby returns from a 4 day trip around the country and a sink full of dishes but all i can do is photograph and admire these white pumpkins. 

Im such a dork.  I feel it still needs something? A white starfish? a White sea shell? I got the whites Hydrangas i could find.  not sure yet. but in the meantime..I guess I better get to crack a lackin on those dishes. Only 3 hours and hubby will be home and say "What did you do for 4 days? The house is a wreck?! "   and ill turn red and sheepishly say  Pintrest again. Sorry. (SOOORRRREEEEE)

Kirstin & Josh say I DO!

First of all I first met Kirstin when she came in for her Senior Portraits. Kirstin was a beautiful Senior, with fair skin and crystal blue eyes. Her Sr. Portraits were some of the prettiest Ive ever created.

SO I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her wedding and Bridal portraits.  I knew Kirstin would be a beautiful bride, but I had NO IDEA exactly HOW BEAUTIFUL. Like a Princess. 

I didnt get to meet the Groom Josh until a few hours before the wedding. A Stapping Handsome quiet guy who obviously has deep feelings for Kirstin. The Strong Silent type. The location blew me away, a PLANTATION in the middle of the Hill Country nonetheless!  Everything was perfect! Here are just a few, pics from the wedding.  Id also like to thank my 2nd shooter Christine Wright of Houston, she did a great job and where I zigged, she zagged and vice versa. (They say Do not Hire someone like yourself, or One of you is Not Necessary) Christines work complimented mine. And she was all over the place, getting detail shots and seeing angles I would not have seen. Thank you Christine!

The weather forecast was rain in the morning and then sunny skies in the afternoon. The weatherman was right and it did not dissapoint. Perfection.

Id also like to thank my son Scott, who drove down from College Station to provide the Aerial photos for the location images. Great job Scott!

and without furthur adieu... I give you Kirstin and Josh's wedding Day.

Is this a Romantic Location or What? The ceremony was held in between the Mansion and the pond. SWOON.
I love the wrap around porches and the Coupala on the rooftop! The windows were amazing and the grounds were groomed. A great mix of Texas with the Old South.

The Enty to the Plantation was lovely with double wood doors, and do you see that Lovely Large Bridal portrait of Kirstin to the Right? She was a vision in White!
Every detail was Perfect!
More to come later today! Internet is slow.. BRB!

My beautiful Grandaughter!

I have been a terrible blogger since before we moved to Houston and after. 
In August my daughter gave birth to her third child, my precious little granddaughter ABIGAIL!
Its so much fun having a grandaughter! Shes beautiful and perfect in every way. Whats amazing is her eye color, They are green like her mothers, and light brown like mine. She is a good baby and is happy most of the time. She has dark hair and fair skin. I love her so much.
She reminds me of her mother in some ways and brings back all those wonderful feelings of being amother the first time. Of course her brothers are nuts about her. Speaking of them
here is a portrait I took of them one day after Church.  
They are pretty special to me too!
We are still remodeling our Lake home, we have lots done and weve done a lot of work ourselves! Ill be posting photos soon!
Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope to hear from you! my email is
