LOVE Texas.

LOVE road trips.

LOVE these girls.

Pressly, Raleigh . . . I had the BEST day with you. We did what we wanted to, ate where we wanted to, ate what we wanted to, stopped when we wanted to, stayed as long as we wanted to . . . I want to remember it always.

and, a sweet friend recently said to me that my girls were the perfect models. . . so to prove a point that I really only get a few good shots of them at any given time . . . Here’s a little slideshow of some of the more “typical”  images from this day! click here

“I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection

and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like Him in His death,

and so,


 to attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect,

but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”

Philippians 3:10-12 (NIV)

“Lay your sorrows on the ground . . . “

and be still. and pray. and listen.

We kind of had a whole heck of  a lot of fun doing this engagement session:o) Hope it shows!







I could easily get use to this. It’s fun to be on this side of the lens watching them start this chapter. I can’t wait to see where life takes them.



blue bonnet mini sessions Tx

The blue bonnets will be here so very soon (probably 2-3 weeks)! I saw 1 yesterday!!!

We are not even playing around this year with the same old blah, blah blue bonnet pictures. This isn’t, “here’s the pretty family all dressed in white sitting in the middle of the blue bonnets smiling and squinting in the sun.” Uh-uh. Seriously – bring on some personality please.

 no more BORING.

 (I mean seriously? when did blue bonnet pictures become synonomous with boring?? break the cycle.)

This is going to be something fun, unique, & nothing you’ve ever seen before (as far as blue bonnet pics go). I’m not going to tell all the details here for obvious reasons. oooh, I really want to tell you though! It’s good stuff!!  If you must know more – call me & you might be able to get some hints out of me! I’m not good at keeping these kinds of secrets:o)

BUT, if you miss it – you miss it. Much, much cooler than the pics above. Trust me.

Ok- focus, the DETAILS . . .

LOCATION?: we aren’t messing around I told ya! I have private property in Chapel Hill. Oh, and it’s like the bestlot btw. It’s been featured in the news in the past. The best.

TIME/DATE?: Well, who the heck knows. We’re stalking wild flowers dude. I’ll let ya’ know when it’s time. It will be 1 week day & 1 weekend day (probably 2-3 weeks away).

COST?: 250 (that’s it – it includes EVERYTHING!! yes, I know, you’ve never seen prices this low from me. jump on it! I’m only taking a small number.)

WHAT DO I GET?: Well, besides some really unique and cool pictures that you aren’t gonna find anywhere else, you get a 8×8 inch custom made art gallery mount as seen above! It can have between 1-4 images printed on it. It comes ready to hang or you may rest it in a pretty little easel. Valued at $135. You will get an online gallery & you may choose your images!

 (Digital files & additional prints are available at up to 75% off regular a la carte pricing if you need more.)

WHO?: absolutely anyone (except newborns); perfect for a mini maternity session, family, kids, photographers, parents who almost kill each other trying to take their own kids pictures, babies, grandparents, really – anything! (except boring stuff).

SIGN ME UP?!?   

slow down . . . just email me & we’ll get it all taken care of:o)

allison{AT} or use the contact form above. This list has already started . . . so don’t piddle around.


I have a lot of favorite things about these albums. These are hands down, the best album available on the market. The list is forever long of the things I love about them.

I’ll stick with my top two so as not to bore more than necessary. . .

1) I love, love, lovity, love the lay flat spreads. BECAUSE, it gives your book endless ‘display potential’ . Bored with that page? Just turn to the next! The images stretches across 2 pages. And, you really almost can’t see the page break at all.

2) These bad boys are thick, strong, sturdy & better made than any other album I’ve ever seen. Their worth is obvious when you hold one.

I fall in love with every album I make. So much time goes into their design & choosing the perfect images to tell the story. 

This family totally gets it. They cherish the small things & know they’ll need images to remember every single thing about their little guy. All the routines; the sink baths, the clever games that carry us through the cranky hours, the smushed potatoes in a jar for convenience and reliance on a hand or two to walk just  fast enough.

Well, they’re all fleeting.

And, I can promise you, you won’t be able to remember all of those moments once you’re on the other side. The other side that involves a lot of new memories toting the kid that replaced your baby to soccer games. You’d have never seen the love in those hurried moments. Later, when the moments have passed it’s obvious . . . but then they’re gone.

Now, they have a book with their story. . .

to enjoy . . .


one moment per page.
