Ah, the joys of hunting...

You cant hear him too well, but he says "beth, you made me miss"
uuuuummmmmm no sir, i didnt
but, im not one to talk, since i couldnt hit the broad side of the barn today. I can usually beat the whole family at shooting clays, but for some reason today, my game was completely off. I mean, I couldn't hit a single thing!


I'm allllllllllmost caught up on my homework...

So you all should be getting your CD's HOPEFULLY within the next 14 days

Whew, just had to throw that out there. Im so excited to get it and start shooting with it. Okay, this sounds terrible, but I haven’t even got to really play with it yet. I had a senior session and shot with it, but I haven’t really got to play with HD video and my crazy ISO speeds.
With me getting my new camera, comes the overwhelming feeling and knowledge of how truly blessed and lucky I am to be able to even have this creative outlet. I love love LOVE taking pictures. And I truly love all my clients, and I am so honored to have them come into my life. I have had some really great times getting to know each and every one of them. It’s because of them that I can continue on doing what I really love and what makes me so joyful. Let me tell ya, there are no words to describe how I feel behind the lens. Peace. That’s all I can think of. I’m at peace with everything, and it is an amazing feeling. That’s not to say that there are the occasional butterflies when Im shooting a wedding and freaking out over how to get across the room full of people in about 4 seconds to get the shot I want. Weddings are a whole different ball game though, and they need a post all to themselves.

So, I didn’t want my clients to think that I’m holding their pictures for ransom and wanted to give you guys a heads up on what’s going on right now. Usually my turn around for getting your CDs to you is really quick, usually within 7 days of your shoot. But right now, wow. I’m so backed up on school and editing, it’s ridiculous! I’ll go do a shoot, then come home and do homework. I’ll upload the pictures from the session, then I get behind on my homework. I take some time to catch up on my homework, and I get behind on editing. Then I edit, then homework…you get the picture. It’s a vicious cycle really.
But school is almost over! YAY!!!!! And I’m seeing a light at the end of the tunnel! YAY!!! And I’m getting caught up on my homework! YAY!!! And I’m getting caught up on my editing! YAY!!! And I keep starting each sentence with a preposition! NOOOOOO!!! Haha

Wow, this has turned out to be a long post…

Okay, I am a list maker, and I need to make a list on here for upcoming blog posts.

-Summer plans
-Senior session info
-Overhaul of website & blog
-Music I love
-What I shoot with/and how I shoot (maybe even with a video)
-Session pictures
-Friend post - Shelbie & Cindy

I think that’s all I have for now. So on to the pictures!!!

The feeling of free

Absolutely filled with joy

Karson & Lacy

I have to say that this had to be one of my favorite bride & groom couples I have ever shot!
Lacy is my old roomie's sister

Here are a few of my favorites from their special wedding day.
By the way, their wedding location, TO DIE FOR!!!

Lacy & Karson



Does the texture on this one look okay?

And this is the bride's absolutely fabulous sister, as well as my old roomie from college

I wanted more of a "romantic-ish" feel to this one...

Playing around with different processing...

I cant believe im actually writing more than a sentence...

I hardly ever write on my blog, and I’ve been inspired to do a bit of writing, lol, weird for me, I know. I’ve also decided to not only feature pics from my shoots, but I want to include pics from my life as well. Why, you ask? Haha, because it’s my blog. So, I will start introducing some very special people, places, things, and anything else that I like and love.

(im pretty sure I have a gazillion run on sentences, and this is prob killing you to read, and im sure my old English teacher would have a FIT right now if she were reading this huge, long, certainly unnecessary disclaimer about how I really should have someone proofread this thing…)

: )

Over the years, I learned that people will come and go, but there are some people you cant just get rid of. Jk jk
These are two of my most valuable friends. I miss them so so much, and I think that’s the reason for me wanting to share my life with you guys. I met Christina and Travis my freshman year at A&M. We had studio and a few other classes together, and were a pretty tight group. I love love love them with all my heart, and I know that I can call them for anything and they will be there.

It’s part of our degree program to do a semester away, that’s how I ended up back home doing an internship. Christina went to Spain, yes, SPAIN!! The girl is having a blast, and I get phone calls, which is AWESOME, and it makes me feel like I’m there, well, kinda not really, but still, it’s AWESOME! I sent her on a mission to bring me back old keys, not just any keys, but I’m talking old castle like skeleton cool antique keys. Christina is an absolute joy and blessing to me. This girl is so inspiring and creative. I just feed off of her energy for life and adventure. When we are together, you better watch out, there’s no telling what we’ll do. She knows my life. And she lets me shoot her.

I totally snagged this pic of her from her facebook and edited it, lol
This is her in Spain
Christina in Spain

We dressed as the green monkeys from the Legends of the Hidden Temple for halloween this past year, and won the architecture departments costume contest! We even bought the knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, and spray painted helmets. It was so much fun!
Christina's victory growl


Us out on the town one night
Me & Christina

Meet my sweet pea, Travis. He also answers to babe, darling, t-rav, t-man, hottie, and many other names I have given him. This guy is one in a million, let me tell ya. He has a heart of gold (and the prettiest blue eyes), and he puts up with me and all my silly-ness. He is in landscape, and I think that suites him so well. Travis is a easy going, country boy. He loves the outdoors, and he LOVES TO TAKE PICTURES TOO!!! He completes me. : )
We have so many adventures planned for this summer, and I can’t wait!

I adore his whit and sarcasm
: )
It makes me so happy

...im going to get in trouble for posting this one maybe...but oh well!!


These two are really amazing, and I hope that one day you will have the joy of meeting them and getting to know them, because they are truly amazing individuals.
