The Full Story...






These two cuties have been married for almost 30 years!! We did a quick anniversary session at the San Antonio LDS Temple after getting some headshots done for them both. Kyle and I just passed our 4 year anniversary and seeing Heidi and Scott interact with each other makes me wonder… What will mine and Kyle’s relationship will be like in 26 more years? Will we know each other even better than we do now? Most definitely. Will we better understand what it take to have a successful fulfilling marriage? I certainly hope so. Will the trials we’ll undoubtedly face cause us to turn towards each other and towards God? Or will we allow it to harden our hearts and distance us from each other?

I hope that it will emulate a lot of the wonderful things in Heidi and Scott’s relationship. I love the quiet respect and affection that is present in every interaction between them. The soft chuckles and shared humor during their anniversary session. The sense of having leaned on each other through the hard parts of life. I’ve loved observing them separately at our church (before covid when we actually went to church). They both radiate a love of Christ and a desire to serve His children wholeheartedly. I truly believe that this is one key ingredient to happy, successful, lasting marriage: keeping God as the 3rd member or your marriage.

God in Your Marriage

In a marriage class I took in college (yes, I took a marriage class even thought I was still single at the time, and it was BOMB) they talked about the importance of viewing your marriage as a three-party arrangement. The 3 members were you, your spouse, and God. They stuck this diagram up on the white board and explained how, in your marriage, as both spouses independently draw closer to God, they grow closer together.

To me, this is so evident in Heidi and Scott’s marriage. You can feel the love they have towards God. And it shows in how they interact with each other and with others around them. 26 years from now, that’s what I want for me and Kyle. I want people to be able to look at us and just FEEL how much we love God and each other. I want to inspire people through our relationship just like Heidi and Scott have inspired me.

Thank you, Heidi and Scott, for inspiring me with your love! Enjoy some of my favorites from this super sweet anniversary session! 🙂

Y’all this colorful, energetic, hilarious session with the Castro family brought so much laughter and light into my day! Their family session at Market Square in San Antonio taught me something that I’ve suspected for a long time: boy moms have so much fun!! Where are my other boy moms at? Don’t you agree?! It […]

GUYS GUYS GUYS!! I think I’m in love 😍 I mean obviously I’m in love with my husband (4 and a half years already?!) but I mean with this family session at the Pearl!! The Langelands are some of my very favorite repeat clients and they killed it at their session last week! Between the […]

Jillian and Bryce’s small, rustic wedding in McAllen, TX was a beautiful mix of elegance and intimacy. Kyle and I walked into the church building, and our jaws dropped. We’ve been to so many weddings and receptions in church buildings before, and it was always so OBVIOUS that it was just a church gym masquerading […]

This family session was the stuff that photographer dreams are MADE of! The lovely Brinkerhoff family came dressed perfectly in complimentary (not matching!!) outfits. The sunlight during golden hour was super creamy and dreamy. And every single member of this family could’ve been a model. Seriously! When I finally got to see the whole ensemble […]
