For the love of Summer and Watermelon

IF you are in Texas, then you know that in order to survive summer one must have watermelon. So without further ado, I decided my free mini session would be a watermelon photo shoot! Super excited about all the props and most of all the yummy watermelon! 

Glimpse of my FB "only a few spots" left ad
Yes those are my precious little ones!

Yes it is still drying...took an old suit case and painted it Watermelon. Then took my trustworthy can of chalkboard paint and blue painter's tape and made a stripe on my watermelon. Wasn't sure this was going to work but as you can see it did! 

Now to charge my batteries, cut up watermelon and rest up for tomorrow's very busy mini photo shoot! Previews soon!

Adding a little splash to my photography

I am always looking for a new "great" idea. A while back, I came across Wish Photography, an amazing photographer in Utah. Yes if she was in Texas, I would follow her everywhere! So I took her idea and tried. 

I am super thankful for the friends that took a chance and met me at 6 am to try this. Without these amazing ladies, I would not have had the confidence to try this or continue all morning getting "one more shot". So thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

Enjoy and please remember this is my first attempt and will continue to learn and update! To see more updates, check me out on Facebook:

The O Family

The love between a brother and a sister is something I wish everyone could experience. These two definitely have the typical love-hate relationship at this age. They are without a doubt, two children that are loved so much by their amazing parents. This session makes my heart smile thinking about how much they have all grown over this last year. 
Blessed to capture sibling love!
To see more go to

Of course she is a teacher's child and knows the importance of my favorite book! 

Details my dear!

I laugh now but this morning at 5 am, I didn't see the humor. As a mother of toddlers, hold 2 different jobs and one just happens to be a photographer, I am also not known for my great organization skills-as you can see from my cabinets. 
My husband woke up using what I call his "I.S.S." (In School Suspension) coach voice. "Why is your lens in the kitchen cabinet? That is an accident just waiting to happen." My first thought of course was, am I that exhausted that I left it in the kitchen? I left my nice perfect bed to see what he was talking about...there was a lens all coffee cup that looks like a lens! Silly goose! 
At least I know he is looking out for me!
