A cookout with friends- and a little music


Blake and Kyle got their hair done

Backyard lax

EvQ was here

Headed to Savvy Workshop and the plane had plugs- bonus

Some of my housemates


I so want a Jimmy like this

The chefs were awesome

One of our photoshoots

I missed them

Came home to find the lax team airsofting in the backyard

We got drywall upstairs


I want this painting

soaking up the sun

Hanging at 470

wiring for front porch speakers

The girlie is ready for our house to be done

When you have a million 8th grade boys running around your construction site and then a million 10th graders show up too sometimes the WoPo show up to make sure they aren’t getting into trouble.

And sometimes one of them gets into trouble. Just kidding- this was totally staged. When you live in a small town it turns out the cops coached some of the kids in lax when they were younger and volunteer to do selfies with them.

Love these two

My car is in the shop so we have this Dodge Charger for a few days- Austin was all over it.

And that’s a wrap

Savvy Workshop

I have been home for well over and week and I still haven’t been able to go through my images.

End of the year craziness and our landlords deciding to put the house we are renting on the market (so therefore we have to put the stuff in this house in storage and move into a hotel for the next few weeks) has made me a bit crazy.

I just want my house.

I thought I would throw up some images from the workshop- I haven’t done any editing but honestly this chick didn’t need much editing!


Her name is Emme and she is awesome


And she’s only 15


I chatted with her mom for a bit about their decision to move the fam to 30A- something we would love to do!!


She was such a sweet girl- beautiful and living an awesome life at the beach


So many more pics to go through…..

Elizabeths - 15???!!!!!!!!! Holy cow! And lives at the beach too?? Ugh don’t like her already LOL

Monday evening lacrosse


Blake is #62 on the right with the long pole. He plays defense so he stays by the goalie.


I realized that I had no pictures of him playing for probably the last couple of years so it was time to grab a few.


I love this one of his bud Brendon- he plays attack and scores the goals.



This one cracks me up. Just a bit of a size difference


And for the grandparents if you want to see him play- here is part of a game from last week that one of the dads recorded. You can see him on the left side about 50 some seconds into it. Once you find him he is easy to follow. We won:)

Hannah - He’s a giant! You did a great job catching action shots. I try to with the kids soccer, at least one game a year i’ll take my camera and the 70-200, but mine always look like the kids are having seizures or something.

Susan/Gramma - Thanks for the game shots. This is a strange sport in Texas tho starting to catch on in spots. Andy gave me a good recap of how they play during a visit last year – and we love to see Blake in action.

Elizabeth - he’s a big kid! Hope all is going well for you and your having a wonderful week Elisa!!

Happy Birthday Eva!

This is late and I didn’t take any real pictures this year- it was busy few days plus I got sick…

You know how it goes.

The girly turned 5 on Monday. Five.

She picked Rusty Bucket for dinner so we headed over after Blake’s lax game.

She got new wheels

The next day she was way tired- and a bit grumpy

All in all a good birthday.

And just some random stuff.

I feel very fortunate to have this by my house. Stress reliever

I want this light to go over my tub

The boys used the house as basecamp for a day of airsoft wars- this is Eva’s new room upstairs.

I did some prom pictures last weekend for a friend.


Next week I am headed to Alys Beach with my college roommate for a photography workshop- can’t wait!

Video from last year:)

Hannah - Happy Birthday to Eva! I love that light. Did you get it?

Have fun this weekend! Come back Savvy :)

A little more Texas

I’m trying to clear off my memory cards so I can shoot more tonight and this weekend. Still have more Texas to go.


We took Austin over to University of Texas so he could check it out. The picture below would be cute if Cole would stop making his weird face.


He still claims it would be weird to live in Austin since his name is Austin.


We assured him that he probably isn’t the only one….


Someone was a little tired and grumpy


And someone else was hungry- again.


Then it was back to Fort Worth


Where the kids did a lot of this


And the big kids did this


That smirk….


And that


This makes me laugh every time- see the tiny bug??





It started to rain, but then it stopped and we enjoyed the last of our outside time in Texas


Gretchen P - great pictures! The last one of Miss E is frame worthy. Everyone I know that lives in Austin, love it. I’m sure A would be happy there if that is what he decides.

Hannah - These are great! When did Cole get braces? Maybe it’s been a while ago? I’m old and a bit foggy anymore.

Love the pictures of Eva, but my favorite is your son and the bug. We’d get along just fine :)

kelly - My daughter is starting at UT in the fall. She couldn’t be more excited!!

Laura H - Your pictures and family are gorgeous!
