I have always been fascinated by photography. I have spent countless hours studying photographs of people, while considering the angles, the lighting, and the editing the photographer used. I love the fact that photography has the amazing ability to transport us to a different time, or place with one single shot.
It was not until I started blogging that I decided to take photography more seriously. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of my apartment, of friends, and family. It was after experimenting in this way that I realized my passion for photography. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I realize that passion can open your eyes to the impossible, so not only did I invest in the proper equipment I also spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to enhance the skill it takes to be proficient with this passion.
I enjoy, and appreciate the opportunity to photograph bloggers, couples, influencers who make an impact in their profession, families, and also lifestyle type setting. I take an individual approach to each person I photograph. I make every effort to embrace and highlight the focus of what they are trying to convey to their audience with each session.
I look forward to working together and capturing the potential magnificence of your moments through my eyes and the lens of my camera.
I have mentioned before how rough this time of year is. From the fickle weather, monstrous allergies, and confused fashion I think we all breathe a sigh of relief when spring has officially sprung. In Dallas the weather will literally go from 90 to 55 in one day, as we are experiencing right now. Since I can’t predict how hot or cold the end of the day will be I have been wearing a lot of jeans (these in particular) and blouses. This way I am cool enough for hotter temperatures and can throw on a jacket if it should get suddenly chilly.
This blouse is by far my favorite new purchase! Trust me, you will see it a lot! It comes in three colors, is super soft, and is under $70! I really want this green color for my safari this summer! And the black would be so chic with black jeans or a black skirt and my new shoes!
I have really been to art lately and this face would be the perfect addition to our very small collection! After falling in love with Sally King Benedict and her work I have noticed how intriguing face
Travel • EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE VISITING ANTELOPE CANYON
Ever wanted to visit the site you’ve been seeing for years on Pinterest? Antelope Canyon is breathtaking but there are certainly things which would be helpful in knowing before you book your trip. Don’t worry, I learned the hard way for you!
To say that I was nervous to go skiing was an understatement. However, if you look the part you can be the part. My first order of business before my trip – find the perfect outfit! I had been lusting over ski outfits for months and I knew there was one place that had it all – Saint Bernard. I found exactly what I was looking for! An outfit that was chic, not ordinary, and would stand the test of time. My favorite part of the look were my Erin Snow Slim Leg Ski pant (which are on sale). I literally had women stop me and ask where my pants were from! Each woman said she hated how baggy her pants were and had been searching for a skinny pant. My husband was worried the pants wouldn’t be warm enough but his worries were unnecessary as the pants were extremely warm! They were perfect from the slopes to après ski! Not only were women on the slopes wanting to know about my pants but women at the Ritz also came up asking where my cute red pants were from!
If you need ski outfits or any type of ski gear I would recommend going to Saint Bernard now. Everything is on sale which makes it the perfect time to stock up. There is nothing worse than regretting not buying something on sale and then having to pay full price later.
Although I don’t gravitate toward overly feminine items, a perfect bow is an exception. I used to have every ribbon color under the sun and would tie them in my hair everyday for school. I love how classic, beautiful, and quick they are to pull together any look. buy it here
at home • Cactus Gummies
My love for cacti continues! Call it the Texas roots but if I see one, I need it! I even purchased a three foot cactus vase just because I couldn’t pass it up! These gummies would be so cute on a bar cart, in a guest room, or for a southern themed party! Yee Haw! shop them here

There are a few things that I will never not have in my closet. A good pair of skinny jeans, a classic white button-up blouse, a leather jacket, a great pair of sneakers and my cashmere crewneck sweaters from Everlane. Besides my obvious love affair for Everlane, with their minimal and classic approach to clothing, I love that I can wear these sweaters from fall to spring and again the next year. The quality, cashmere, and craftsmanship is amazing! I literally wear these EVERY week in the cooler months. You can wear them alone, over a blouse, under a blazer, dress them up or down. They are the quintessential “closet staple” item.
If the word cashmere, because of the price tag associated with it, has already lost you. Stay a bit longer! Cashmere can usually be anywhere from $200-$700, making it quite the investment piece. Guess what? Everlane sells these sweaters for $100! Now you can have classic at a bargain! It doesn’t matter when you purchase these, just that you do! I promise you, you will forever be grateful you did!
p.s. If your sweaters ever pill, I use this magical tool given to me by my dear friend Debby. It is amazing at removing any pilled fabric and doesn’t damage your garment.
* I also swear by their 100% silk blouses! I have this one in three different colors!
