Welcome Spring

Welcome Spring – Transitioning your look with colorful, statement making accessories.

Oh Spring….. you have my heart! Cool days, bright sunshine, green grass, flowers, and patios…… it is the perfect season, if you ask me! A few days ago, I met my bestie Jess for one of these cool, bright, patio enjoying days! Cupcakes and coffee, yes please!! BIRD Bakery is just the cutest! A yummy almond milk vanilla latte, my DIVINE gluten free vanilla cupcake, one of my very favorite people, and an adorable patio….. I was (and AM) SOLD!! I’ll drive to Dallas every day for that, thank you!! I won’t lie though….. watching Troy Aikman walk right in front of me as I parked my car was a fun perk too! šŸ™‚

We were even able to squeeze in a few photos after cupcakes, with my new camera…. Hello Canon! My Nikon has been very good to me, but after 10 years I decided to make a switch I have dreamt about for at least, half of my career!

One of my favorite parts about Spring is adding new, fun, and colorful accessories, with my seasonal (still a bit chilly outside) outfits! For this look, I immediately knew I had to wear my newest teal, fringe earrings! I’m only sad that this color isn’t available for you guys right now…. but I am linking LOTS of beautiful options that are all in the same style! If you ever need accessory help, I am SO your girl!! (*Internet shopping fanatic*) (oooops) lol

Besides having my camera turned on me, thank you Jess (She’s so awesome!!!)…… I also shot her cool/cute look for the day! She is seriously SO gorgeous, and always puts the coolest looks together! If you’re new here…. she is a designer, stylist, and online boutique owner….and you HAVE to get to know her! She is doing it all, and is the quintessential #momboss and my true blue soul sister!! <3

Galentine’s Day with American Greetings

Galentine’s Day……
I’ll admit it, Galentine’s Day which is celebrated on February 13th, hasn’t always meant very much to me until this year. It’s amazing how connected we become to those we surround ourselves with once we truly find OURSELVES!! I won’t make this too long and sappy, (because I’m saving that for another blog post šŸ˜‰ ) but I will say that when you find your tribe, your girls, your squad, or whatever you call them….. embrace them, support them, encourage them, love them, and fan those flames and watch those relationships grow!

American Greetings gave me such a wonderful opportunity this year, to really highlight what “Galentine’s Day” means to me and for that I am so thankful! I had already scheduled a day date with a very dear gal pal and decided to enlist her help in showing how special these cards really are! And because of American Greetings‘ generosity, I’ll be adding a couple of their adorable cards to my Galentine’s Giveaway that I am announcing tomorrow!!

For me: Galentine’s Day is about celebrating your girls and what they mean to you. It doesn’t have to be big and spendy, you don’t have to throw a party or do a fancy dinner out….. just a card to tell them how much you care, or how much they make you laugh, or how needed they are in your life!

Lifestyle – Breakfast with Sis Podcast

I am going to call this one of my life highlights. A blip of time that shined for me and felt really special. I was a guest on a podcast. A podcast called ‘Breakfast with Sis’. Two of my favorite people run this fun podcast, and it was such an honor to be on with them! We started the morning with a photography session to capture this adorable father/daughter duo for promotional purposes and it was so much fun! Here is the first sneak peek!!!

.

Once we finished the photo session, we headed back in to Chick-fil-A (have I mentioned their intense love for the Chick?) and had our breakfast before recording the podcast. It was truly, SO much fun, and I would love for you to check it out when you can! It’s a perfect listen for a workout, drive to work, or anytime you can spare about 50 minutes šŸ˜‰ I think I may have the ‘on air’ bug, because I really, REALLY want to do it again!
Breakfast with Sis – episode 31 with @Thefamilyof3

After the podcast, we all drove over to Alli K Designs newest Dallas wall(s) mural in Uptown! Here are some pictures from our trip over!

Alli K Design is such an incredible artist and it has been a whirlwind few years for her! Watching her grow this business and see her success has been incredibly fun! You should follow along, because who doesn’t love florals?! šŸ˜‰

Photography – Alicia + Daniels’ Glamorous Turner Falls Engagement Session

Photography – Alicia + Daniels’ Glamorous Turner Falls Engagement Session. As a photographer, I have always dreamed of shooting at Oklahomas’ Turner Falls! The beautiful blue water and falls, natural stone formations, mountainous terrain, natural lush landscape….. it just has such a strong aesthetic appeal.

Alicia and Daniel knew they wanted something special for their engagement session. After almost eloping last fall at a south Texas falls, they set their sights on an actual wedding this fall in Portland Oregon. These two are so stylish and hip and I knew after the choice of elopement location, water had to be involved for their engagement session. We settled immediately on Turner Falls, in Davis Oklahoma which is a mere two hour drive for all of us. It was worth every mile and more! It was a very warm day, but the still cold water added just the right touch and refreshment during the shoot. When it came to wardrobe, renting a gorgeous Badgley Mischka gown from Rent the Runway added the perfect hint of glam to perfectly pair with his oxblood suit from the Suit Depot! You’ll also notice her exquisite and unique emerald engagement ring, made especially for her by Effy. This session was a dream come true and the fact that this girl is one of my very best friends, made it that much better.

We’re now less than two months away from their incredible destination wedding in which I get to be a guest! BUT…. there WILL BE A BRIDAL SESSION, to show off the dress she is making with her own two hands!!!!! You had better believe I’ll be featuring those here as well!

Without further ado….

 

I cannot wait to see these two get married next month and I am so honored that I was able to photograph their engagement session! Cheers, you two! Love ya!!!

Travel – Malta in April, a Family Travel YouTube Video

In April, we traveled to the stunning island of Malta for both work and family vacation time. We first stayed in Valletta, where we explored for 3 days. We then visited the beautiful city of Birgu, and the island of Gozo to see the remains of the once “Azure Window” and the stunning Wied il Ghasri. We also visited the awesome Playmobil factory and fun park in the town of Birzebbuga. Parents of kiddos, this place is a MUST when visiting Malta!

We moved to Sliema for the remainder of our trip and stayed at the Palace Hotel (stunning views), and took small trips throughout the city and just beyond, while there. One of the more awe-inspiring destinations was Mdina, which is also known as the “Silent City” . We loved wandering through the quiet streets, spotting sites that were filmed for Game of Thrones, and just enjoying the architecture. Malta was rich in history, rich in kindness, and rich in beauty. We will definitely be back!

Travel – Malta Family Vacation Part One

Travel – Malta Family Vacation Part One

Malta. You know all about Malta, right? And you can totally find it on a map I bet!

I will be the first to admit that while I had definitely heard of it (that counts, right?) I honestly had no idea where Malta was or what Malta looked like! It wasn’t until months ago that I started doing research on this lovely little island, and I’m so glad I did. Did you know that they filmed Game of Thrones in Malta? More on that in a later blog…

This was D’s 2nd trip there in 2 months (lucky butt), and this time we were adamant about tagging along and extending his work trip, and extra thanks go out to his awesome Boss man for letting us make this work!!! We really enjoyed getting to spend some time as a group of 4, in between meetings, the first few days we were there.

Here are some of my favorite captures in the first few days while in the capital city of Valletta! And be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the continuing series!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed a tiny look at our first couple of days in Valletta, Malta!
