Another Photo Shoot

After I did Jill & BIlly’s Engagement pictures, Jill’s sister asked me if I would take some pictures of her daughter.  She was so cute & her mom had the cutest little outfits picked out for her.  Here are a couple of my favorites:IMG_0521IMG_0501  IMG_0197_edited-2   IMG_0372_edited-2 IMG_0399_edited-2 IMG_0350 This last one was so funny….she started chasing this squirrel and literally was looking around a tree at him!

T minus 32 days!

Yep...that's my official countdown until my favorite Holiday...Christmas!  And yes, I have already gotten into the "Holiday Spirit"!  We put the tree up last weekend (stop shaking your head!  We are out of town every weekend until mid-December and if we didn't do it then we wouldn't have done it at all!).  I love putting up a Christmas tree...I love looking at my Christmas tree....I love buying ornaments that won't even fit on my tree anymore...plain & simple - if I wouldn't get the "your are crazy" look from people when I told them I kept my tree up all year, I would!  So anyways, here is my tree:

Another favorite part about the Holiday season is getting Christmas cards in the mail!  I love seeing the cute cards people pick & more recently all my friends are having babies and they have precious pictures of their babies or their families or even their dogs on the cards.  The past two years I have also sent out Christmas cards...and since I don't have babies or dogs, they have been of my oh-so-precious cats dressed up in Christmas hats. 

This year Shutterfly is giving away 50 FREE cards to bloggers!!  Their Christmas Cards are awesome this year...they have a huge variety & are super-affordable!  Here are some of my favorites:

These are my four favorites & I think I've narrowed it down to two for my Christmas cards. Now I only have to decide if I'm going to put another rediculous picture of my cats on it or one from one of our wonderful vacations this past year!

Jill & Billy’s Engagement Pictures

One of my good friends, Jill, asked me earlier this summer to take her engagement pictures.  I thought she was halfway joking when she asked ( I am nowhere close to a real photographer), but when she asked in September when we could schedule it, I knew she wasn’t joking.  So I told her I’d be happy to but gave her many disclaimers that I could not guarantee anything on how they would turn out but, I would try my best.  Lucky for me, & her, they actually turned out pretty cute! 

Here are some of my favorites:

Erin & Rickey’s Wedding Day

I guess it’s been a while since I’ve posted & I have a lot to catch up on.  Since my last post was of Erin’s bachelorette party in LA, I thought I’d post a few pictures from the wedding day.  Unfortunately I only have pictures of us getting ready, and none of the actual wedding & reception – I left those to the real photogs! :)  The wedding was absolutely amazing and the reception was held at the Houston Museum of Natural Science…we danced under the dinosaurs! 

  Here are some pictures of us getting ready for Erin’s big day!IMG_5853_edited-1 IMG_5863 IMG_5867 IMG_5872  IMG_5878_edited-1

We folded programs while getting hair & make-up done. IMG_5881 IMG_5884 IMG_5888_edited-1 IMG_5889_edited-1 IMG_5890 IMG_5891 IMG_5898 IMG_5899 IMG_5901 IMG_5902  IMG_5907 IMG_5914 IMG_5916_edited-2 IMG_5919 IMG_5921 IMG_5940 IMG_5944 IMG_5947 IMG_5949 Our bouquets! IMG_5959
