Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a fun Valentine’s Day!  Last minute I decided to get some heart-shaped cookie cutters (like, I got the last heart-shaped anything at Michael’s) and since one of them was metal I though it’d be fun to try and make heart-shaped fried eggs (boyfriend’s favorite) and heart-shaped french toast bites!  Rounded out with orange juice and super delicious super crispy bacon, just the way he likes it; I prefer mine chewy!

I’d love to find some fun V-day traditions that I can incorporate into the holiday (I’m not a huge fan of too many traditional traditions :)).  How did you celebrate??

Houston Winter Wonderland

It’s not a hurricane… It’s SNOW?!! This will be my first Winter in Houston, TX. It looks like I won’t be able to escape the snow no matter where I live. 🙂

Typically, Houston will get a bit of snow every 4 – 6 years during the Winter. There have been estimates that some areas of Houston will see 4-5″ today. Snowball fight anyone? :).

This is the earliest snow in Houston since 1889. Measurable snow has NEVER been seen in back-to-back winters. We’re breaking records here, people!

Happy Black Friday!

Instead of spending Black Friday heading to the stores and acting like animals, it seemed like a better idea to head to the Houston Zoo to actually see animals.  My boyfriend thought it would be a good idea (it was free) 😉

He thought I should have more photos of myself on my blog so I let him practice.  This was his first time shooting with manual controls!  He did an amazing job and enjoyed the opportunity of making me feel awkward by posing me in busy walkways :).

My bf kept asking for directions to the evil petting zoo.  He really wanted to see a goat eat a can. I just wanted some hand sanitizer.

This duck had a lot of attitude. The bf really thought this bird should get some gold chains and a posse.

I taught him all about finding good light (even in a bat cave).

One of those busy walkways where he made me stand for 5 minutes (he tricked me into looking happy). 😉

He really wanted one of us to get a picture petting the large cats, but I didn’t think it was such a good idea.

Oh my…

All pictures shot by him, edited by me.

New Proofing Site!

I’ve been working on my new proofing site for a while now and, though it’s not 100% I’d like to share it with all of you! You can see it here. You’ll have to create a login when you get there so you can use the features such as marking favorites and so you can see pricing. The old one is still up, but I will slowly be trying to move all of my shoots from that site to this one. Let me know what you do and don’t like about it and I’ll see what I can do. Thanks!

San Francisco Trip

Hey all you friends from the state I love so much! I haven’t been able to schedule as many shoots as I would have liked for my upcoming trip to the bay area so I’m going to be shortening my trip. If there is anyone out there who’d like to schedule something let me know soon so I don’t accidentally cut off the days you might be available :). Thanks!
