I bet this isn't what you expected when you read Paris in the title :) this is Paris, Texas, not Paris, France. And this is Maria and Sean at their beautiful home in Paris.

Maria and Sean are lucky to live in the country, surrounded by nature and horses. Yes my dream life basically.

Maria is also a photographer, which can sometimes be a little intimidating. But we had so much fun and they let me get creative with their Jeep after the sun went down, which was really cool.

I also got to snap a few portraits of Maria in her second outfit right before the sun went completely down, and there are some of my favorite portraits to this day, and not just because they include my favorite animal :)

Thanks again Maria and Sean for allowing me to capture some memories for you and ride your horses too :) Best ending to a shoot EVER!

PS: you don't have to let me ride your horse when you book me for a shoot, but you do have to allow me to love on him/her, but I will be wearing riding pants just in case :)

When Holly reached out about birthday photos for Cora's second birthday, all she had to say was "I have 3 outfits, is that too much?" for me to be completely onboard.

We don't have a dog because my husband is highly allergic. But I grew up with dogs and horses, so I love animals and when I owned my horse, I loved dressing him up to match me:) So yes cute animal outfits are awesome and pet birthday celebrations should be completely normalized. 'cause how cute is Cora???

When Holly adopted Cora, they said she might not even make it to living until she was one year-old. But here she is: 2 years-old and HAPPY!!

Outfit #1

Totally worth celebrating, Right?

Outfit #2

Outfit #3

Birthday Suit :)

Favorite Mom, Favorite Toy, and Favorite Siblings

Thanks again Tommy and Holly for trusting me with your precious fur babies.

When Haley and Curtis reached out about their engagement photos, I knew I was going to have my work cut out for me because he didn't like photos, but add a fun theme, and some McDonalds French Fries, and let's just say I think he actually had fun, even though he probably won't ever admit it:)

And yes that is a prisoner and a cop's costume. Did I mention that was the theme? And sure, it's not for everybody, just like rock climbing to say I do isn't for everyone, but I personally think they look adorable and every couple is unique and your photos should be a reflection of you. I also think Curtis just likes to pretend that he is being coerced into marriage.

Plus, marriage is about compromise: he wanted the above costumes for the Save the Date, and she wanted cute photos for their house. So we did both.

And of course we had to take one in the Time Out Chair.

Thank you TruckYard for being cool about letting us take pictures!!

And Congratulations again Haley and Curtis.
