Our TTD Teasers!!

We finally did our Trash the Dress session! We did it this past Sunday morning in Galveston, TX. It is about 45 minutes from Houston. Not the prettiest beach, but hey it works!

We went to the Sea Wall and found a great spot that we thought were great photo opportunities (jetties, lifeguard stands, under buildings, etc.). We didn't want to drive all over the place. I have to say...I was so proud of myself! I did my own hair and makeup (I really wanted to get it done, but time didn't permit.) It turned out great! Then I maneuver somehow into my wedding dress in the back of our truck! Lots and twist and turns to make that happen by myself. My photographer and husband were amazed when they came back to the truck and I was fully dressed and zipped up!

We had a ton of fun! I always wanted to do a couple TTD session and not just session by myself; nothing wrong with doing the TTD by your self. I just wanted to share this experience with my hubby. Also, I think TTD sessions with your husband are soooo romantic and another excuse to have some beautiful portraits as a couple.

Weather was great! Had an awesome breeze and water nice. We did some cool shots with my cathedral veil & blue shoes since I didn't get a whole lot of photos of them at the wedding. Perfect time to get some shots I wanted without the rush of a wedding!!

We didn't get into the water till the very end because once you are wet you are wet and you won't be wanting to do anything else. The water part was the most fun. Trying not to get fully wet was hard, but we managed to get all wet with out trying hard. All I have to say was sand was everywhere once we were done! So uncomfortable, but at least my feet were soft from the sand. :-)

Here are a few teasers of our couple TTD! Enjoy!!

This one if my favorite so far!

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.

The card that I got through Love them!

This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.

Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....

Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 

The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.

Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!

I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
