Olivia {Stephenville Senior}

AHHH! Did I ever mention how much I LOVE senior sessions?!

The photos you are about to see are some of my most favorite photos to date. Of course, I cannot take all of the credit. Why?

1. Olivia is one beautiful girl with a fun, sweet spirit. I have known of Olivia and her family for what seems like FOREVER but it wasn’t until the day of the shoot that I got to see who Olivia truly is.

2. My sister, Macy, came with me to the shoot and did AMAZING. Seriously; I was shocked by how many great images she took of Olivia. Some of her photos are my favorites! Again, I am super excited about this session!

Olivia: Thank you SO much for choosing me (and Macy) to capture this fun time in your life. Good Luck at Texas State! God has amazing things planned for you.:)Enjoy your pictures!

I ♡ NOLA!!!

Spring Break 2011 was amazing. I had the privilege of traveling to New Orleans, LA for my first mission trip EVER.:) Because of the awesome things God has done and is doing at Paradigm, I (along with 90+ college students) was able to go to NOLA to do work for God’s kingdom.

My time in NOLA was, by far, one of the best things I have ever experienced. God revealed many things to me over the break. One of the main things God showed me was that my camera (and equipment) is not mine. This hobby, passion, and love for photos I possess, is an undeniable gift from the Lord. He chose to give me this gift so I could bring glory to his name.

I have so much more to say about NOLA and I know the other “road trippers” have stories of their own! If you went to NOLA with Paradigm and want to share something fun about your experience, feel free to leave a comment on this post!

To view pictures from the NOLA ROAD TRIP:

  1. Go to the “Clients” tab on my website
  2. Create an account
  3. Use your username and password to login
  4. Enter ‘NOLA‘ as the access code for the gallery

***If you went to NOLA and would like to have some of the images on DVD. PLEASE BE PATIENT with me as I try to figure out the most efficient way to make this happen!

(Forgive me for not posting this at the beginning of the week, TSU has been keeping me BUSY this semester!!!!)

RENOVATION: Hobby Lobby Vase with a fresh coat of paint

Purchased: I’m not sure… I bought it over 3 years ago!:)

RENOVATION: Full-Sized Bed w/Dresser

Purchased: Another find at my Nana’s house!:)

These before and after pictures were an after thought… I might have tried a little harder had I known it would be making an appearance on my blog!

Sadly, the pillows I bought cover up the unique shelves on the headboard… but I do like my candles! Thanks Wal-Mart!:)

Notice the black dresser…:)my mom and I did A LOT of sanding that day…
