The State Capital

Also while Dustin and I were in Austin, we stopped by the state capital. I have been there several times, but Dustin had never seen it. Since he has his bachelors in history (he just finished and graduated magna cum laude so congratulate him next time you see him)this was really interesting to him! Here are some pictures I took...

Kandi and Brion

I did pictures this weekend for Kandi and Brion Owens in Austin. They got married at this beautiful facility outside of Dripping Springs. They wanted to have the ceremony outdoors, but the cold and drizzle kept them from that. But the day was still beautiful!! Their love for one another was so evident.

Meet Cowboy

Cowboy is my anniversary present from Dustin. He is hilarious!! He is so chubby that he waddles when he walks. He is also a golden retriever like Cassie. They sure played hard last night. Cassie got a little jealous when Cowboy tried to play with her rope, but other than that, they make a really cute pair!!

The Supremes

We put on a Christmas program each year for the residents at Carillon. This year we did the Ed Sullivan Show. We were The Supremes. After seeing this picture, I am strongly considering dying my hair black. What do ya' think? :-)

What a Morning!!

I took pictures for this family last year around this time. The little boy was SO adorable, I used him on my business card. Now, they have a precious 2 month old. They came to our house this morning for potraits since it's so dang cold outside. Carson (3 years old) was a little harder to chase this year, but I still think I got some good ones. Brantley (3 months old) is so cute and squishy!! I love those baby rolls...

A Mouse in the House

I guess the cold weather has caused these little creatures to invade our house! We caught one on Tuesday night, and I about FREAKED! I would not go near it. But when we caught this little guy on Wednesday, I took a closer look. As much as I hate them and want them out of my house, you have to admit, he's kind of cute! I know you think I'm crazy to take a picture of a mouse, but I thought it would be funny to post. So, we are doing everything we can to get rid of these little pests. Hopefully this cold weather will go away, and so will the mice!!

Senior Portraits

Some of you may know Nancy or her mom from Broadway. I really did not know her much before today, but what a cool girl to hang out with! I did her senior portraits this afternoon. Yes, we braved the wind, but it ended up not being that bad! My favorite place was this cool Coca Cola wall we found in the depot district. Nancy was really fun and photogenic. She let me try some new things, and only looked at me like I was crazy a few times!!!
