Georgia...Incarnate Word High School Senior!

I had so much fun photographing Georgia a few weeks ago! What a gorgeous girl she is and beautiful on the INSIDE too. I have known this young lady since she was just a sweet little baby. Her mom came to me for portraits 17 years ago and many more times as she was growing up. I feel blessed and honored to be able to capture her SENIOR portraits now at these 
two amazing locations in San Antonio.
Here are a few of my favorite images from her Couture Senior Experience Session.

Look where we are headed in 2018! {San Antonio Destination Photographer}

2018 is looking like it will be a HUGE travel year for us!

Check out the incredible places we are going and decide which one is best for YOUR family.
Keep scrolling after the images to see the details of doing a Destination Portrait Session.

How Does This Work?
It all starts with YOU reaching out to US about a potential location.
We must have 2-3 families committed to going to the same general location 
for us to waive our travel fees. If not, then simply pay our travel expenses and we will go anywhere in the world with you!

How much will our investment be?
Our Destination Session Fee is $650 and that generally covers several locations within the same destination at a sunrise or sunset time frame.
In addition, there is a minimum portrait order of $2500 worth of printed products.
First half due upon booking the session. 2nd half due 30 days prior to travel.

When do we book these sessions?
As soon as you know you want to do a session at a destination, give us a call. These sessions sometime don't happen because we need another participant to make it go, so the sooner we can start sharing this adventure with the world, the better chance we have of it becoming a reality.

What if I have never been there before?
Quite possibly, I have not been there yet. I am pretty good thinking on my feet, but I will do research ahead of time (thank you Google Earth) and get to the location at least a day ahead of the session so I can see it for my own two eyes.

If you are interested in going on our Inspirational Photography Workshop in Ireland, it will be happening immediately following our portrait excursion above. June 16-24. It will be amazing.
No, you don't have to a professional.
You might want to have a real camera to capture the beauty of Ireland though.
If you are interested in this workshop, hop on over to our Inspired Workshops page and check out the details. INSPIRED WORKSHOPS

A Gift Of Love {September Secret Door Session Sale}

Ladies, let's get real.
We are not perfect. As we age, things sag, lines appear and we are not all that enamored with the way we look in the mirror. We see ourselves with an extremely critical eye, scrutinizing every vein and laugh line we see. Well STOP it!
You are BEAUTIFUL just the way you are! 
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to allow yourself the luxury of having a Secret Door session. I promise, you will LOVE the experience and LOVE the results.

Since September is my birthday month, I want to do MORE SECRET DOOR sessions!!
I LOVE doing these and cannot wait to photograph YOU!
I have cut the price to only $99 (reg $250) during the month of September.
Add a makeup artist for only $150.

Call now to make a personal consultation with me so we can discuss the possibilities.
This session is whatever you make it but it starts with you making the call.


xoxo, Elizabeth

Salvaging Photographs the became wet during the Floods

Save those precious memories!

A friend of mine is busy helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey with their wet photographs and I thought I would share. If you know of anyone that needs help with their priceless family photographs please send them here.

Do NOT pull dried photographs that became wet out of their albums or apart from the thing they are stuck on. This will destroy the images.

If you follow the link, you will see the process of restoring them so they can be seen in the future. Anyone can do it.

In Honor of Mister Cheeks

We would like to introduce you to a young man named Alan, also known as Mister Cheeks because of his face-busting smile. Alan’s interests are the same as many of our children’s. A passion for monochromatic animals like zebras and penguins; Sponge Bob Square Pants; Chuck E. Cheese games, pizza and tickets; Krispy Kreme; Morgan’s Wonderland; letters and numbers; super heroes: star wars; rocket launches; soccer and pandas……we cannot forget about the pandas! Alan had a gift for numbers and loved learning about them. Reading and counting numbers, typing numbers, adding numbers and of course saying his parent’s age.

When Alan was only about a year old he was diagnosed with a sarcoma tumor in his hip. He spent four long years fighting this unwelcomed visitor. It was at this time that Alan and his family learned how prolific childhood cancers were, yet how little funding is actually available (less than 4% of federal grants). They learned that child cancers are very
different from adult cancers. Furthermore, evenkids who survive will ultimately face many long term side effects, secondary cancers, and relapse as they grow.

The family found answers to their questions from the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. St. Baldricks
is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research in the United States, if not the world. Unfortunately Alan lost his fight with sarcoma
just two months after this portrait was made.

We would like to honor Alan and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation by helping to raise
money for cancer research. Alan loved numbers, so the goal is to raise $12,345.67 by his birthday on November 7th. For the month of October clients will have the opportunity to purchase social media files of any image from any current or past session for $10 each. Then in honor of Mister Cheeks birthday on November 7th we will donate the money raised to the St. Baldricks Hero Fund established in his memory. So give us a call, heck, we are not even going to wait until October……September is Child Cancer Awareness month!

In Alan’s own words the “FIGHT’S ON!” Learn more about Mister Cheeks at WWW.STBALDRICKS.ORG/HERO-FUNDS/MISTERCHEEKS

A Wizarding World...BACK by Popular Demand!

A couple of months ago, I decided to create a portrait of my 13 year old son that really depicted what he absolutely LOVED at age 13....all things Harry Potter!

He has read ALL the books (several times), seen ALL the movies many, many times AND even been to the London studio where many of the movie scenes were filmed. Let's just say he is slightly obsessed.

Seeing that I have never watched a full movie and never read a page in the book, I relied on him to help me set the scene for his themed portrait session. Thanks to my friend Google, I drew inspiration from the movie posters and stills from the movie scenes and we created A Wizarding World!

Now Jackson is not a huge fan of being my model, but for this session he was ALL IN. We had a blast creating these images, capturing flying books, and he loved putting spells on me. Of course.

Everyone we have shown these to has RAVED about the images and wished they had ones just like them. So....we have decided to create an event just for all the Harry Potter fans out there.

These sessions are 20 minutes in length and designed especially for kids and young adults.
While the set is designed with one person in mind, we are able to fit up to 3 people at the most.
Robes and Ties will be provided, in addition to Books and Wands. 
Have your own outfit, wand or HP stuff? Great! You may totally use your own things!

The session fee is $50
Minimum order of $200
We have a Create your own Collection system, allowing you to purchase whatever fits your needs.
Our products include small prints, wall portraits, albums and digital file collections and much, much more! In order to book your session, simply call our studio and we will be happy to let you know the availability.

The Wedding of Lyndsie and Aaron...August 4, 2017

I was so blessed to be the photographer for this beautiful wedding on August 4, 2017 at Hidden Falls, a lovely wedding venue just north of San Antonio.
The story goes WAY back, when the groom's mother hired me to photograph her four small children. Years of portraits followed as the kids grew and one day, the oldest, Aaron,  got engaged to the love of his life, Lyndsie. 
Since then I have photographed their engagement portraits and Lyndsie's bridal portraits and we have gotten to know each other very well during all the planning that goes into getting married. 

Here is a little sample of some of my favorites from this beautiful summer wedding. 

Venue: Hidden Falls
Flowers: Eden's Echo
Hair and Makeup: Prim and Powder
Dress and Shoes: Impression Bridal One of a Kind dress by Victor Harper
Wedding Coordinator: Country Sugar
