Life:: A Baby Shower in Austin

My friends all moved away, which sucks. BUT I am not tied down so I can do ALL the traveling and visit them which makes me so happy. And so traveling for each others’ baby showers are becoming a thing and it’s fabulous. First Briana in San Francisco, then Amber in Winston Salem (which I regret I forgot my camera **rolls eyes**), and now Adora in Austin! And man, it was adorable. Adora and her husband Josh are expecting a little boy named Jett in less than 5 weeks!

So when Briana had a chance to return the favor of throwing a baby shower for her best friend, she really dove in and came up with a fabulous camping-themed shower, complete with s’mores and an actual tent. Not to mention, Adora’s sister Michelle is an INCREDIBLY talented calligrapher & artist who makes custom signs (check out her adorable shop MillionAyres) so we utilized her talent to make cute signs to label everything!

Anyway, we had a great time and every time I’m with these girls, my heart is full. Adora, I cannot WAIT to meet baby Jett – he’s already going to be the coolest kid on the block with parents like you and Josh (and a killer name like Jett). Cheers to you both!

Photography:: Frank + Daniela

“Yo, that’s the hottest asian I’ve ever seen!” Those were the first words Daniela ever spoke about Frank to her best friend Nia when she met him at school orientation. But she had no idea that man would be her husband just 5 years later. They went through ups and downs, misunderstandings and hurt feelings but they eventually found their way to each other. And you know after spending just 5 minutes with the two of them that God had brought them together. I’ve known Daniela since she was in 6th grade and I knew it would take no one less than a goofy, easy going, strong man of God to win her heart; and that’s exactly what Frank is. You can see God’s hand in their relationship and it’s beautiful.

I had the opportunity to hang out with them in Miami while shooting their engagement pictures. We drank coffee, ate empanadas, and got eaten by mosquitoes.  It was a great time. Their happiness radiates from them and it’s a joy to capture. Cheers to you Frank and Daniela – I have a feeling 2017 is going to be very special for you both!

Life: A Baby Shower in San Francisco

I was friends with Briana for years and eventually her roommate. I was a bridesmaid in her beautiful wedding and now a soon to be aunt to her baby bun. A few great friends and I had the opportunity to fly out to San Francisco to throw Bri a fabulous baby shower and that’s just what happened. We ate donuts dripping with caramel, drank mimosas, and painted stenciled onesies for baby bun Lyndon. It was a fantastic time celebrating Bri and Jim’s new chapter and I couldn’t be more happy to document it.

I can’t wait to meet him; we all know he’s going to be quite the charmer. Cheers to you friend!
