This summer, I did some work for IMG Artists, an international company in the performing arts management, tours, festivals, events and consulting business. It was really neat to get to learn a bit about each artist so I create a one page promo sheet that would represent them well. Below are a few of my favorite creations.
you may remember morgan’s rehearsal dinner shots from a few posts back. she called me a few weeks ago and wanted to take some cheerful, fun bridal shots. i was excited about the chance to see her again and to see what all we could capture. there are three great things about doing bridal shots after the wedding:
- all the stress of the wedding is over
- you get to wear your dress again
- you don’t have to worry about getting the dress dirty–meaning more opportunities to get great shots
morgan is so precious and i always enjoy our time together. her mom came along and was awesome at fixing hair, veils and trains and making us laugh. glad i got to photo morgan’s gorgeousness again!
after several scheduling hurdles, I finally got the chance to photograph will and his parents. can you believe this big guy just turned one?! let’s just start by saying summers in texas are HOT (i think they get hotter every year), but these guys were troupers. they loaded up the wagon and we headed to the park.
they’re such a sweet family. glad i got to help them capture another stage in their lives. i love getting to work with clients over the years as their families grow–it doesn’t seem like it was three years ago that I was taking katy and bruce’s engagement photos.

luke was born on may 8, 2012. brandon and i got to go over and spend some time documenting his early days. he wasn’t too happy about all these strange people with big black things in his face, but once he got some food, he was less bothered by us. his daddy had the idea for the fishbowl and got everything all set up for the shoot–so cute! such a precious little guy with a wonderful family!
