The Clark Family, 11/2/14

The aroma of toasty tortillas, clinking forks–and sweet little Taytum asking me if I still had the flower she placed in my ear–succeeds our family photo shoot. Matt, sitting across from me, places Corbin in his lap as I thank everyone for inviting me out to dinner.

“It’s a much better day than last year!” Mark mentions, and it doesn’t even take me a second to realize what day it is.

I had unintentionally scheduled Matt’s family photo shoot on the exact anniversary of his tragic motorcycle accident one year later. I begin to feel bad for mindlessly scheduling the shoot on what is a blurry memory of tears, family and friends holding hands, hope, and hospital hallways. I contemplate ways to appropriately apologize when he says, “…And we’re so happy we could all be together today.”

Video Premiere: Fox & The Bird

So, this post is only somewhat actually related to me, but first off, I just wanted to post that my good friend, Paul Grass, is in an amazing band and was recently featured on American Songwriter (Written and posted yesterday by Evan Schlansky) and just wanted to share it.

The reason it’s related to me, is that I get to photograph sweet Paul and his fiancé, Charleigh (who has done hairstyling for one of my shoots in the past), next month and the cute ideas are just getting me too excited.

Please enjoy and share! :)

The Story of Leslie & Jaxon Willis 12/30/12

“It’s raining a little outside,” was definitely a statement I remember hearing as I was adjusting my camera settings.

“It is?!” Leslie looked back to see Amy, the wedding coordinator, peeking through the door of the Bride’s dressing room. Usually, it’s not always a good thing to hear when it’s raining on an important event, but this was different. Rain on your wedding day symbolizes good luck in the sense that it is bringing water to a dry place, for example, like watering a plant–causing a flower to bloom.

Back in August, Leslie and I sat next to each other during a Fever Dreamer show. I hadn’t even met Jaxon yet, but I recall constantly hearing about about how “awesome” he was. ( Blog post from that day with photos of Leslie and the show )

“Have you met Jaxon yet?” she said. This was the first time I had ever heard Leslie talk about him. I could tell she was already head over heels for him. Leslie has  definitely always been one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen, and Jaxon happened to be the lucky one who swept her off the market.

“It had been a month since I had seen him because he had been off in Atlanta for work,” says Leslie, describing the significance of the purple chair at White Rhino Coffee House in Cedar Hill, Texas. “It was sometime late April that I saw him over my laptop from the couch and he was sitting across from me in that chair. I awkwardly told him I loved him because that was the first thing that came to mind. It was only natural that I profess my love for him right then and there. I mean, he came back from Atlanta looking like a Greek God. That’s when he started laughing it off, so I attempted to save that moment by saying he was tan… and I liked his tan skin. I started working on my government paper after that because I was mortified. Six months of repressed emotions and I felt like I blew it in one phrase… but it worked!” For those of you who do not know Leslie… she has a great sense of humor, lol. I asked her if they had a “special song,” and she replied, “‘I Just Do,’ by Dear And The Headlights. It’s almost identical to the beginning of our relationship.”

“In the coffee shop, you sipped your drink

and we all sat and talked.

My mind had wondered off

alone to find a thought

as beauty poured out when you talked.

You stand still in my sight,

a switch got hit somewhere back in my mind.

Just then I realized there what I had to do,

’cause I couldn’t stand to look at you

across another crowded room”

and know that you would not be mine.”

I feel so fortunate to have gotten the chance to be in charge of Leslie and Jaxon’s memories. I also feel honored to know that years from now, my photos will be the ones they will always look back to.

“Liz On Top Of The World” was the song Leslie walked to down the isle. My face was hidden behind my camera, but I looked like a sad, sad sour patch kid and couldn’t help by cry. :.)

“Now, ladies and gentlemen… Leslie & Jaxon have something to show you.”

“Midnight City,” was a song that Leslie and Jaxon booty danced to on their wedding night (I got some great photos from that).

However, it turns out that this song has a story too: “On our way down to get our engagement pictures done,  Jaxon was trying to cheer me up because the curl in my hair fell… So he made up some ridiculous dance moves to that song, and it stuck with me.”

Time Flies

Christina & Lee Buchanan celebrate their first year with their little man, Christian, and once again are welcoming a new family member! :)

I’m so grateful to have the opportunity of documenting the growth of their new little family–-Thank you, Christina and Lee.

The sunlight beams beautifully through their large windows, letting diffused rays of soft, pink light shine through the curtains. They have the perfect quiet little house in Waxahachie, contemporarily decorated with their mismatched dining chairs.

I cannot wait to continue on photographing the happy family as long as they’ll let me. :)
