Luke & Melissa: e-session

Meet Luke and Melissa!

These two are so fun. They have such a relaxed and easy-going spirit. I literally felt as if I have known these two for years and we just met!

The photo shoot was in Independence at the Old Baylor Campus and the railroad tracks nearby. For some reason, I thought it would suit these two. When Luke showed up in a cowboy hat, I KNEW it was perfect.

We almost had to cancel due to a storm approaching, but it took a turn to east and gave us the most gorgeous sky and clouds.....a photographer's dream. However, it did not bring the wind with it. It left that in Independence with us.

Overall, I was super excited at how their pictures turned out. Here are some of my favorites from the day. Thanks for such a fun time!

Ross King!

We were super blessed to attend a Ross King concert this past Friday night.

I love the songs that he writes. They are so real and in your face. I need that. They speak to me. The Lord has truly gifted him musically and poetically.

It was really awesome because I was outside walking around taking some pictures and there were people walking by on the streets of Downtown Bryan wondering what was going on at The Palace. The conversations went something like this.

"Who is Ross King?"

"I don't know, but he sounds pretty cool."

"You want to go check it out?"

"Sure. I'm game for whateva!"

And in they went. Praise the Lord!

The Palace was a groovy place for a concert. The kiddos had fun running around together and we had fun worshiping the Lord outside.

The funniest part HAD to be the train. If you know anything about Downtown Bryan, you know that there is a train that runs right in the middle of it. A very loud train. Ross was in the middle of his 5th or 6th song and this blaring horn overpowered everything. The band totally stopped playing. How could they even continue? It was rediculously (is that a word?) loud.

I didn't have my 'bread & butta' zoom lens. It is too big for me to tote around with a gigantic 7 month old on my hip. So, I didn't get in as close as I would have liked to. I did get some wide angle stuff. This also means I didn't get any of my groovy Hope Group leader on the drums.....the rock star, Craig Weaver. He is sick on the drums. For real! I just learned that in teeny bopper terms, 'sick' is a great thing. It is the equivalent to us saying 'awesome' in the 90s.

The W Family

A few weeks ago, I had the blessing of photographing this family.

They are precious friends of mine. Our plans were to head out to the local rose gardens, but after this bunch saw the hay bales that Jason baled the week before and the gorgeous views, they were thrilled to pose for a few pictures in our pasture. The evening was absolutely stunning with an amazing sunset!

Here are a few of my favorites!
