Alyssa & Adam’s Hummingbird House Wedding

From the moment I met Alyssa & Adam, they were both so warm, kind, and welcoming. They’ve been together for a super long time, and everyone at the wedding was so excited that they were finally getting married! Even though I just met them that day, I may or may not have been tearing up during the ceremony because I was so happy for them 🙂

The Caroline Logan Workshop Recap

One day I was scrolling through Instagram when one of Caroline Logan’s photos popped up in my feed. I’ve been following Caroline’s work for awhile now and admire her beautiful work and the way she runs her business so much. I decided to look on her website to see if she had any sort of business mentoring available, and in the process of doing that, I came across her workshop! As I skimmed through the information about it and saw there were still spots available, I immediately called my parents to make sure they were cool with it if I skipped a couple days of school to go. My parents, being the incredible people they are, were totally on board and encouraged me to sign up right away!

What to Wear for Your Senior Portrait Session

I don’t know about you, but picking out the perfect outfit to wear for a special occasion stresses the heck out of me! I’m totally fine picking out an outfit to wear to class, chapter meetings, or church, but choosing something to wear to a friend’s wedding or to formal is a whole other thing. And if you’re anything like me, picking out my outfits for my senior pictures was one of those stressful moments.

How to Create a Cohesive Instagram Feed

I wanted to tackle the whole cohesive Instagram feed because it’s something that has been SUCH a struggle for me and one that I just recently felt like I’ve sorta gotten a handle on (and I’ve by no means reached the level of cohesiveness I desire for my feed)! I used to think that editing everything using the same settings or preset was enough to make my feed look cohesive, but I just kept coming away disappointed. There’s actually a whole lot more that goes into it!

Six Reasons You Should Take College Senior Photos

To be totally honest, I didn’t know college senior photos were even a thing until I started getting approached my sophomore year by girls in my sorority who wanted me to take their graduation photos! But after 2 years of being booked solid during senior photo season, I actually wonder why more people aren’t making them a priority!

Shayna + Rebecca’s Best Friend Senior Photos

I took Shayna’s engagement photos several months prior to this, so I was so excited when she contacted me again about taking her graduation photos, along with her best friend, Rebecca! I actually love it when best friends or sisters decide to share a photo shoot because who doesn’t love getting more cute pics with their bff??!

Roots Boutique | Lifestyle + Commercial Session Spotlight

I get a lot of questions about what it is I do for Roots Boutique and what all these photo shoots look like. Basically, we spend a couple of hours every couple of weeks driving to various locations around Waco—they bring the clothes, and I pick out the locations and take the photos.

How to Edit Photos on Your iPhone + A Free Preset!

I’ll be the first to admit that I rarely carry my DSLR camera around with me these days. It’s pretty bulky and heavy, and I just don’t feel like making my arms do all that extra work. As someone who tends to opt for my iPhone camera for everyday life, and someone who runs multiple Instagram accounts (my own, my dog’s, my sorority’s, etc.), being able to edit my photos easily on my phone is a must.

Rachel’s Downtown Waco Senior Session

Now that summer is here and I finished my summer classes, I’m finally getting around to blogging all the sessions I had throughout the spring semester. It was a busy season, but such a wonderful one! This spring was my busiest yet, and though it was overwhelming at times, I am so grateful for all the wonderful clients I got to work with.
