Eleven years ago, my mom bought a house. I was a sophomore in high school and she was a single mom, working two jobs so that we could have somewhere safe and warm to call home.

We built so many memories in this house.

This is where I hung posters to decorate my hot pink bedroom. (But only on the back of the door- If you know Rhonda, you know she was not about to let me have nails in the wall! Haha!)

This is where I first learned to cook. (Or make margaritas – potato, pototo…)

This is where I helped my little brother with his homework.

This is where my best friends and I hung out, drinking on the porch.

This is where Robert became part of our family.

This is where I packed up my things (with my mom crying in my bed) as I prepared to move out on my own for the first time.

This is where I told my mom that I was getting married while we stood at the bathroom sink. 

This is where I truly grew into a woman. 

As nostalgic as it may all sound, it truly has been such a wonderful home to call mine, even as an adult with my own house now! As sad as I am for this chapter to close, I am beyond THRILLED that my mom and Rob will be moving to Lake Charles! I can’t wait for quick drop-ins, dinners that don’t have to be planned weeks in advance, and random lunch dates! 

I’m also excited for whoever gets to call this place home next. I know the next owner will start their story here and build memories of their own. 

Thanks guys for dropping by and reading through all of this, even though I know you probably only came for the pictures. 😉 I can’t wait to photograph Mom and Rob’s NEXT home since I’m sure they will want to pull a Hailey & Ben and have a session as soon as they move in haha! 

Until next time…

This afternoon I had the pleasure of photographing my brother-in-law’s adorable family. 

We had a ton of fun and I am so happy with the pictures that we got.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Thanks for being so easy to work with guys!

Enjoy! 

Isaac is graduating from college! His sweet sister booked this session for him and it was a blast! His adorable dog even joined in on the fun and we got a ton of great photos! Check them out:

 

Isaac and Kaylee- it was a pleasure to work with you guys! Congrats Isaac and I can’t wait to work with y’all again in the future!
