The recent rains have kept my delivery guys from driving down my road. Instead they leave my packages at the video store. I haven't been to my video store, since before Christmas Eve, but I stopped there on the way to my wedding Friday, and look what I found!

Macy and Mark's Asuka Book (finally)
and Mr. John Lee's Parent Album

I thought this would be a good time to share just exactly what a Parent Album looks like. I love them! I think it's because they are simple in design and very classic, so I don't get tired of how they look or feel.

You can't go wrong with black leather, baby!

This album is 10x10 in size and all you have to do is send me 24 of your favorites from the wedding, or a private session. They will be printed, bound and delivered! It's that simple! You can choose your favorites straight from your online gallery. Just click add to album and when complete, it sends me the list!

I love that!

Mr. Lee, your book will be shipped on Tuesday morning! I just know you are going to LOVE it. I do.

Now, Macy's E-session Album is an Asuka Book. A 7x7 20 page Asuka book is included with all private sessions. Many of you have yet to choose your images, and you shouldn't wait! These books are sooooo cute!

They come with a cute cover to protect the jacket.

I did Macy's in the orange from her wedding colors. Something fun to spice up the book! Although with their pictures, it didn't really need it. LOL

They feature a jacket that you can write on to personalize the book if you would like. Great way to celebrate Mom's birthday! Choose your pictures and then have everyone sign the jacket!

This shot shows how glossey the pages are. I love the EX! (a kind of asuka book) You can choose the matte finish too if you perfer. Your choice.

The colors just POP!

And the double page spreads lay very nice.

So, Macy and Mark? I'm mailing this one Tuesday morning, too! I just know you will love it!

If you are interested in ordering an Asuka book or a Parent's Album from your session or wedding, email me and we can start the process.

lindsay + andrew


a dream wedding for me. Lindsay and Andrew were so laid back at this thing, completely laid back. Well, except for the freezing cold, oil drill thing. That wasn't completely laid back for anyone. But they knew they wanted to capture their day but didn't want to waste tons of time doing it. Photography was important to them, but spending time with family was too.

We managed to do both. And do it well.

I'm fading fast, time wise. Ready for bed. But wanted to get these posted tonight for you and your family to enjoy!

Lindsay at the salon getting all "gussied up".

Okay, you must understand. Lindsay was cold. And she had her mother dress her. I swear the girl looked good on Friday and she looked amazing when I left her this afternoon. But this morning? Not so much. HA! It was totally cracking me up and making me think of rodeo clowns. Those are her mom's hot pink socks down below!

Of course, when she put on that dress, that was it. No more laughter.

Getting laced up in that corset! She looked fab!

This is Julie who flew in that day for her wedding from Dallas. She was quite worried about the weather and thought her flight might be cancelled. But she was there! And Lindsay and Brittany were so glad. (Brittany was Lindsay's bridesmaid and high school friend.)

love this shot in the bride's room of Lindsay (who never wears makeup, by the way) putting on her lipstick. LOVE IT!

techno geeks?

85 shot wide open, 800 iso (I think...) and spot metering. I love spot metering!

Dad, 5 minutes before the walk down. He came to see her really quick.

Such a great moment! One reason I feel so privileged to be a wedding photographer. I have the BEST job. I really do.

I was thrilled that this family allowed me this opportunity to photograph this wedding according to feel and not method. Many times, right before a ceremony, when I'm shooting alone without Jodel or without Stephanie, I have a choice to make. I can stay back, with the bride and get moments like this. Or I can go out and shoot the processional.

Don't get me wrong. Shooting Grandma being seated is important. I understand that. But Marc, Lindsay's Dad is always gonna remember this day and this moment every time he looks at this photograph. And it will hit that place in his heart, that sometimes hurts, yet makes him remember the whys in life.

why we Live.
why we love.
and why we Laugh.

And just how darned blessed we are to have the "whys".

I love that I stayed behind.

They were so cute together. And gosh! So many words and touches and glances. I was in the vestibule photographing the bridesmaids when I heard them laughing and giggling. Such a great day!

Ceremony was quite lovely. And so much personal stuff was said by the two ministers. They had so many great stories about these two to really bring in the guests and make them feel welcome. We witnessed these two saying very simple, yet heartfelt vows and just a great service.

Lindsay surprised EVERYONE with a Star Wars Theme Recessional! Including Andrew who had no idea. He's a pretty introverted laid back kinda guy, but this one got him beaming, too!

Congratulations you two! I'll call you soon!

To see more of their photos, click HERE. There's only a sneak peek up right now. The remainder will up soon!

christmas with brooke and jack

and the twins!

Jason and Emily are here and my kids are sooooo excited they can't stand it!

I didn't get the chance to post this before I left for the wedding this weekend, but I'm home now downloading cards and wanted to get these up before Tre went crazy! (Tre is Teresa Alford, mom to the famous, adorable, non-aggressive Caucasian male and his lovely counterpart, Presley!)'ve seen these adorable faces before. Presley and Jax, The Alford Twins (on my gallery page of website.) They referred to Jax in the NICU as Whimpy White Boy, because when preemies arrive, the white boys are the last in the line up. Meaning they get better and thrive at a slower rate than the girls or boys of other nationalities. His Daddy, Cody really didn't like that term, I mean who would? (snickering) so he came up with,

non-aggressive Caucasian male


They stopped by after the Slaton BB Game and before our Family Christmas for sandwiches and some fun! The kids sure enjoyed each other!

Jax working out with some might cute baby toys!

Devin is always good to have around for the entertaining stuff. Keep babies from getting fussy. Or maybe it's the other way around? Only way he can be around them without getting fussy himself! LOL

hmm...not sure what he thought of Devin's "walrus imitation". LOL

awww...he likes it.

Miss Presley enjoying some goofy time with the big girls.

The entire Alford Family.

Jason and Jax enjoying the football game. They start them young around here.

Brooke and Kalyn hanging on the couch.

Jack got a new digital camera from The G's. (The Grandparents)

Summer's new horse from Chief and Grandma! She loves them! She's wanted a horse of her own forever. I can totally relate, but way. So, this will have to do.
