The Pavilion at Plaza East, Granbury Texas

We love our small towns and business owners.   A couple of weeks ago, The Pavilion at Plaza East reached out to me about photographing their new venue in Granbury, Texas.  I love having the opportunity to meet new businesses and connect on a more intimate level…so heck yeah I’ll come out and photograph it.  We are now excited to share that we have partnered with The Pavilion at Plaza East as one of their preferred vendors and we just couldn’t be happier about this!

Local Business Spotlight: Easy Sliders Deep Ellum, Dallas TX

Local Business Spotlight: Easy Sliders Deep Ellum, Dallas TX

If you follow along with me personally on social media – you will know that we are foodies.  We LOVE to eat.  We LOVE to try new places.  And then… there are some places that we go back to any chance we get.  A few years ago when we worked on a food truck, Chez Flo, we met and became friends with several other food truck owners.  Food Truckers are an incredible community of people.  It was then that we met the beautiful women who owned and ran Easy Sliders Food Truck.  Such a smart concept – burger sliders with an incredible twist on them.  We’ve tried almost all of them and we always fall back to our favorites.

The Roadside and The Sweet & Lowdown.  Seriously… you just can’t believe how amazing the flavors are together.

Flash forward a year or so… and they have now opened they very own brick and morter restaurant.  They are located in the heart of Deep Ellum in Dallas, TX.  A perfect location for this girls.  We stopped by last week after I had completed a session for lunch and to congratulate them on their new space.  Seriously… such a great space.   Not only is it big and open, it also has a patio.  A bar placed right in the middle allows you to easily grab a drink while chatting with friends and still easily move around.  One of the best parts of the new location… As you are walking thru, take a look at the pictures on the walls. All of the images were created from life on the food truck.  I love the story it tells!

Of course we got our usual choices (creatures of habit) but we also tried their tator tots.  Doesn’t this picture just make your mouth water??  I could have eaten the entire order myself.

BE Necklace {Woolard’s Custom Jewelers}

BE Necklace {Woolard’s Custom Jewelers}

A project that is incredibly special to me is officially live.  ONLINE and in person.  It’s real.  What seemed a dream or maybe just a really cool idea has finally come to fruition.

Several months ago, an idea was created between myself and a fabulous woman named Coralee.  For my local people in Burleson, Coralee knows someone for everything you could need.  What started as her asking Woolard’s Custom Jewelers for a donation, quickly turned into an idea based on what they do best.  Custom jewelry creation.  Let me back up and give you the back story behind the idea that sparked it all.

While I will always photograph people in general – my passion is women of all ages.  From little girls to mothers to the women who lead us by the lives they have lived.  The passion behind what I do is fueled from having a desire to show women how beautiful and strong they are.  To remind them that you will never be the perfect weight or size, you will never be the perfect shade of tan, you will always be tired from running here and there and taking care of others… however, take a step back and see yourself as those around you view you.  You are strong.  You are worthy.  You are making an impact on someone else, even when you don’t see it.   It’s important to me to remind women of this when they step in front of my camera.  It’s important to me to help the little girls see this and not get lost in what society says they should be.  There is no perfect woman… the world would be so boring if we all were.

While brainstorming about how I wanted to take over the world (kidding… kinda), Coralee and I talked about … What would a woman BE if she could BE anything?  (get it… BE  = Beautiful Evolutions… keep up with me now)

After asking some of the women in a private Facebook group that I have… these were some of the words that were given to us.



Each and every one of these words has a story behind it.  For me… my word was Inspiring.  I want to inspire others, I want to show women how amazing they are, I want to show our daughters growing up that they can truly accomplish anything if they are dedicated and driven, I want to show women that no matter what size, shape, color, or age they are… they are beautiful.

These words have been hand created into necklace pendants.  Each necklace has two pendants.. a BE and a word… you can actually, add as many words as you would like.  These are a small reminder to BE the person you are intended to be.  A gentle nudge to keep you moving in the right direction.  A gift to help someone else remember that they are worthy and they are loved.


And now… they are real.  An idea that has been created and is actually on the market to purchase.  An idea that is no longer just living in our minds.  Thank you Woolard’s Custom Jewelers and thank you Coralee for creating this beautiful reminder for women of all ages and at all stages in their story.

{Proceeds from the BE charm will be donated to The Women’s Center}

Engaged, Erica & Austin

Earlier this year, I was blessed with an opportunity to partner with a local jeweler, Woolard’s Custom Jewelers,  on a few projects.  One of those is a beautiful way to thank their customers; for each custom engagement ring that they create, they gift an engagement session to their customer.


Meet Erica and Austin.  Austin had a ring custom made by Woolard’s a few months ago.  He asked this gorgeous girl to marry him and they are now currently planning their wedding for April of 2017.  Their story is super sweet, they met while waiting in line at a local restaurant in Fort Worth, realized each other was eating alone and decided to eat together.  They’ve been inseparable ever since.beautifulevolutions_0608 beautifulevolutions_0609

The love the share for each other is absolutely beautiful.  The laughter they get caught up in, is sweet to watch.  Austin doesn’t like his smile… but, Erica… she just adores it.


Congratulations to you both.  I truly hope that your wedding is all that you dreamed it would be.  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to create some beautiful engagement photos for you.
