Ocean Month Inspired my Latest Personal Project {New Braunfels Underwater Photography}

June was National Ocean Month and I wanted to do something that was eye-catching to illustrate the pollution of our oceans. If you follow my work you know I love memraids. And most of my images are of beautiful, colorful, happy mermaids. I thought this time I'd switch it up and illustrate mermaids who were not happy. Why would they be happy about the destruction of their world?

It was heartbreaking to create these images, especially the first two because they use my favorite mermaid model, my own little girl. She has actually gotten tired of modeling for me lately so it took some convincing. I told her the concept and she only agreed because she supports my purpose -- to draw attention to the pollution of the seas. But it was difficult for me to tell my daughter to act dead. To put that blank look on her face and pretend she was killed by the pollution around her. She performed well, although I had to remind her several times to stop giggling "dead mermaids don't giggle," I'd say.

The rest of the images were willing underwater clients who supported my message as well. I'm going to continue working on this project in the future so, hopefully, next June I'll be able to put some more out there. The more people see it, the more they'll hopefully be inspired.

In This Case, Better Late is Better {New Braunfels Wedding Photography}

When COVID hit last spring it threw the wedding industry into a tailspin. A lot of brides and families were devastated when their venues shut down and weddings were canceled. Some have been able to hold their weddings a little later at the same venue. While others, like Jordan and Kyle, decided to change it all up and make it more them.

This beautiful couple was supposed to be married on April 4 last year. But they got word just a couple of weeks before that the wedding could not take place at their venue. They decided to cancel altogether and just elope. But as the weeks went by and COVID got worse and worse. They found that those plans weren't going to happen either.

Fast forward more than a year later. Jordan and Kyle were finally able to tie the knot. But they did it in a low-key, backyard way.

They gathered just the people who are closest to them and said their vows in Jordan's parents backyard. They even had their little Dog of Honor and Best Dog take part in the festivities.

The evening was full of homemade pot luck food, coolers full of sodas and plenty of fireflies. It was the perfect kick off to the summer where things get back to normal. I was so happy to be a part of it!

Congratulations Class of 2021 {New Braunfels Senior Portrait Photographer}

I love getting a chance every year to meet so many seniors and photograph their sparkling personalities.

Last year turned into a bust and I had so many cancellations from seniors because the end of the year happened right around the time of the shut down. It was a scary time for the class of 2020. The class of 2021 had a year like no other but they made it through.

Here are just a few of my favorite images from this year's senior class. Congrats class of 2021!
