Avery Drew Schilling


She is so precious. Sometimes I think that she looks just like BJ. Other times she looks more like Mandi. I just can’t decide. Avery came over for her 7 month portraits and to have a little Halloween fun. Once she morphed into a duck, none of us girls could control our giggles. I mean, how cute is she?

Happy Halloween, Avery!

Here are some of my favorites. To view all of her pictures, CLICK HERE.

Mr. and Mrs. Trenton Cornehl

Wow. That’s all I can say. Wow.

You both are wonderful and I wish you so much happiness, yet, I know I don’t have to because you have so much happiness in your heart.

Trenton, you have such a beautiful bride.
Amanda, you have such a loving husband.

I guess I need to not get to know my clients so well anymore. My eyes were full of tears the whole time. That could be an occupational hazard!

Get home from your honeymoon, I want to hear all about it.

This image was taken before the wedding. They chose not to see each other, but I still wanted a picture of the “engaged couple.” No, they didn’t see each other during the making of this image.

This is their childhood slide show on the jumbotron at Jones.

Angela and Burr are Married!


A beautiful bride, a handsome groom, and the most perfect chapel ever! Angela and Burr were married at the West Texas A&M Chapel in Canyon.

Ok, here is the funny part of the story. I photographed her cousin’s wedding quite a while ago. She was a bridesmaid, he was a groomsmen. And when I did a fun picture of the wedding party I placed them together as a “couple.” That is when they started dating! So, I am responsible for making two people fall in love! Ok, there are a few factors other than me, but it sure does make me feel good. Here are a few of my favorites. To view all of their images, CLICK HERE.






The Garland Family

Just so you know, I have been trying to post this all day. There is something wrong with blogger and I couldn’t even get all of the images on this post. So, if you are waiting for your post, please be patient, it will be here soon.


Ok, I am really behind again, but I am going to catch up, mainly by not writing much and just posting images. This is Cadden’s family. After we did his session, Amy felt like we needed to get the whole family in on the action. Now Christmas Cards are designed and everything looks great. Which reminds me, if you want Christmas Cards or a special order for the holidays, please call me now!

The Kilgore’s

Stacey wanted a beautiful family portrait of his family. Well, that was no problem with beautiful children like this!

This was one of my shorter shoots, but the kids were so great, it did not take long to get many wonderful images.

Here are a few of my favorites. Stacey, I will see you soon to view them all!

Shannon and Dustin Nelson


What a blessing. I don’t know how they found me, what made them want my images, but I am so glad that I got to meet every singler person that I met on Saturday. I had already been speaking with Shannon and two of her bridesmaids and when I got to the church on Saturday, it was hard to believe that I had never met any of them. I hope to see you all in Fort Worth very soon!

The ceremony was held at Westmont First Christian Church and the reception was elegantly put together at the Historic Lubbock Woman’s Club.

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson. The day could not have been more perfect.

Kristene and Aaron and the flight of the mosquitoes!


Kristene and Aaron are getting married June 30, 2007. That is, if their photographer doesn’t get them eaten up by mosquitoes. We went to one of my super secret spots and I know why there was no one else in site! The mosquitoes have gotten so bad that Aaron and I joked that this must be the sequel to “Birds.” We had a great shot and went to many different places. I cannot wait to photograph them both again. I will see you Tuesday for your viewing!

Locker Johnson


Locker Johnson is the precious 3 month old cousin of Tucker, who you have seen on my blog numerous times. Their mom’s are sisters and couldn’t be sweeter. I can’t wait to photograph Locker again. I think that my favorite part of the photo shoot is when it is over and I get to hold him! I think that these two boys are going to have a lot of fun times together, just like their mom’s did when they were growing up.

John and Dinah

If ever there was an artistic, creative person, it would be Dinah. If ever there was a loving husband who wants to live for his wife, it would be John.

We had so much fun during this shoot. We started out at Hodgepodge Design in the shopping center at 26th and Boston. Dinah owns Hodgepodge and I promise that you can find anything for anyone in there! We then went to the Ice Cream Shoppe next door and then to a sunflower field. That is where it got interesting.

There were people in the field next to us hunting dove, a small barbed wire fence accident, and a warm glass of wine for the couple.

All in all, it was one of the most fun shoots ever.

Thanks, Dinah and John! I can’t wait to do it again!

The Hodges Family


Heather, John and their girls are new to Lubbock. They received a session from their realtor, Nathan Jordan at Century 21.

Heather and John were so sweet and they have such a love for their entire family. They are so happy together. And, not to mention, they are such a great looking family!

I had so much fun with all of them. Madison picked flowers for the entire family. She sure is a ham until the camera comes out! Here are a few of my favorites.
