My First Wedding Photography Shoot… I Think I’m in Love.

Grandparents' Kiss by Sprittibee, Austin Wedding Photographer

I said I would never shoot a wedding. As much as I love portraits and event photography and art shots, I was listening to that little voice of fear about how stressful a one-time event like a wedding would be. The voices we listen to can be intimidating. Can I hack it under pressure? I […]

Austin Senior Portraits and Bluebonnet Fever

Best Buds

My oldest son is a year behind in school, so his best buddy is graduating a year ahead of him. Granted, his best buddy is about 6-8 months older, but they have grown up together and it is a difficult time for teens when their friends are finishing up and they still have books to […]

Sundays and Signs of Spring

Mansions Over the Hilltop

I don’t know about you, but I am overjoyed that I have a mansion just over the hilltop. Sundays may not be perfect all of the time (rarely), but I feel so blessed to be able to rub shoulders with other saints on Sunday. I love my church family and being around other Christians. They make […]

In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a native Texan… and we Texans have a little crush on our state. Especially lovely are the things we think make Texas wonderful: like bluebonnets, which happen to be the state flower. This year’s bluebonnets were THICK, y’all. Maybe it was the drought last year? That’s what we […]

I know I’ve shared quite a few of our Pinnacle Mountain adventures already (see links below)… but this one was unique.
