Jo & I are going to Haiti. Wanna Help?
Jo & I are going to Haiti.  Wanna Help?


Last year I had the honor of traveling to Haiti. It was an amazing trip and one that confirmed so much of what Danielle and I have been dreaming of since we were first married. It was my first overseas mission trip and I knew the minute I landed in Haiti that I needed to come back. Over and over. But coming back alone was not enough, I needed to bring my family along on the journey. This year we are hoping to take one step closer in that direction by having our 10 year old son join me on the trip. We are both super excited about the possibilities and can’t wait to see what God has in store for us.

(This is the part where you come in.)

We are funding the trip ourselves and are still a bit short of the full amount. So I thought, why not see if anyone out there is interested in contributing?!? As a little thank you for your gift, I’ll come out and shoot a mini-session of your choice. Family, baby, maternity, senior, kittens? You pick it and I’ll shoot it. I’m only offering 10 of these so get em’ while they last.

10 mini-sessions, $100 bucks each. All proceeds go to getting Jo & I to Haiti.

Two more things…

1. If you don’t need photos, but still want to donate. That’s allowed. (Email me here:
2. If you don’t need photos, and don’t want to donate. That’s also allowed, passing this post along to others would be a HUGE help.

Ready… Go!

(Email me here: if you want to book a session.)
Here is a little video I put together from my trip last year.

If you wanna see photos from last year’s trip take a look here.

Engagement / Family / Awesome Session
Engagement / Family / Awesome Session

it’s been a long time since i had this much fun during a session.  angela, bj, and addy were the best.  i started by having them “walk towards me”.  they decided to run.  :)

then to make this next photo i had them literally walking backwards.  i know.  i just blew your mind.  backwards!

slamball!  someone (bj) got dunked on.  (bad)

family time!
while watching a movie.
while bj checks his phone.
(don’t judge, we’ve all done it.)

angela is a couple years older than bj.  which technically makes her a cougar.

thank you 3 for a killer session.  the wedding is going to be a blast!

Lauren & Brent | Anniversary Shoot
Lauren & Brent | Anniversary Shoot

I shot Lauren & Brent’s wedding a little over 3 years ago.  They are one of my favorite past couples but it’s not because of their great style or awesome taste. (Although this things don’t hurt.)  The reason I love them so much is because they were and are still totally into each other.  Every time I’m around them I leave ready to go home and love my wife better.  They are killing it at being married.

Back in August Lauren E-mailed to say they wanted an themed anniversary session every 3 years and that this one would be a “vintage style shoot with a 50′s-60′s style dress and hair, bowtie and suspenders for brent, old fashioned bicycle, etc etc..”

This was my response: “you + brent + galveston + vintage = i’m in.”

6 months later here are the results.

If you think this shoot is great wait till you see what we come up with in 2015. ;)

Colette & Nathan | Austin Family Photography

I was lucky enough to be able to shoot my sister-in-law and her family this past week.  They have been overseas in Hong Kong the last few years and just recently moved to Austin where Nathan is the preacher man at Milwood Baptist.  They have a fantastic little family and my kids just adore getting to visit and play with their cousins so a min-vacation/family shoot was in order.

After a while we dropped off the rug rats and had some “adult session” time.  These are some of my favorites.

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined C – Sorry it took me like a whole day-and-a-half to show them to you. :)  Thanks for being SOOOOOO patient.
