This session was a dream.
Let me start by saying their sweet, sweet son Dustin, gifted them with this anniversary session. THE SWEETEST YA'LL <3
We had so much fun during this session. Julie was very much into her creative side and came prepared! LOVE IT. They were completely natural in front of the camera. They exuded love and romance. They made me want to work harder at my marriage ya'll. This is what 40 years looks like.
Roger and Julie Kindly gave me a snippet of their story to share. <3. Prepare yourself.
" Our love story began on December 14, 1974. Roger and Julie met at the Sam Rayburn basketball tournament. Julie was talking to another boy and then they got to talk for a short time before her basketball team left to go home. After Julie got home she told her mother about the boy she met. Her mother encouraged her to write him a letter to Delmar School where he attended. Julie could only remember his name was Roger Mc….? She looked in the tournament program to get his full name.Julie wrote the first letter to Roger on December 16, 1974 c/o Delmar High School. Shortly afterward Roger wrote Julie back and they continued to write off and on through high school. One week they would receive 2 letters and the next week 3 letters. The price of a stamp was 10 cents.
The second time they saw each other was when Delmar School went to the Bonham Skating Rink in March of 1975. Julie’s parents brought her to the skating rink. So this was the first time Roger met her parents. Later that summer they started going to the race track in Bells with Roger’s family.
Roger and Julie’s story continued with a lot of letters and a few long distance phone calls (once a week). There were no cell phones or computers to e-mail with.
They got married on June 2, 1978 at DeShong Chapel in Paris, TX. Their first home was in Brookston, TX. All their neighbors referred to them as the “the Kids”. They paid $50.00 a month for their rent and Roger was making $2.00 an hour working at Sambo’s Restaurant.
Their love story continues on as they build new memories to cherish with their 3 children and 8 grandchildren. They love spending time together even if it is working in the garden or hiking the Harding Ice Field in Alaska. They give God the glory for the love he put in them for each other and putting them together. They hope and pray that their children and grandchildren may know the love of God and find their perfect mate.
And now they are ready to write their next chapter…..
Just Married 40 years."
These senior girls have killed it this year!
Drop dead gorgeous.
Heart of Gold.
Summer Andrews rocked it.
Just last year Alannah went into labor at 25 weeks with their first baby girl, Ophelia Grace. She fought hard for 49 days.
Nearly 14 months later and her sister made her way into their arms. Miss Alessia Hope Pannell made her way earthside at 7:07am on April 22. She was 7lbs 4oz 20 inches long.
A perfect miracle and answered prayer.
Maddie's spring session did NOT disappoint.
We even got to throw in some of her and the BF.
They my favorites.
We have a new baby cousin!
So excited to welcome Creede Alexander into the family <3
Congrats Desi and Family! He's just the cutest lil man!
This sweet girl came a day before she was suppose to. I have a special love for this family and was too excited to meet miss Emeri Grace.
I love these sessions. They are magical and evoke such a child like whimsy.
This year I did a giveaway for one and Kaci Ratliff was our winner.
Laken was hamming it up ;D
Oh, this girl!
Beautiful inside and out.
She has one of the most amazing voices I have ever heard.
She loves Jesus.
She is funny.
She is Maddie and I love her!
There's something humbling about a fellow photographer being a client. Deanna has such a gift and talent. I was very excited when she reached out to me about doing her maternity session. Her family is absolutely adorable and I know they cannot wait to welcome that baby boy into it.
Oh this toot!
It's bittersweet every time Strykers momma messages me about pictures. Our boys are one week apart in age so I always know it means my little man is also turning a year older. Hurts my heart our boys are growing so fast! It's also sweet because I love this sweet sweet family! I have had the privilege to photograph them for 3 years now! It is such an honor and I am so thankful.
