Live Oak

















Tucked in the arms of a great oak tree, she dreamed of the things this tree has seen.
There is something spectacular about a great live oak tree.
The south wouldn't be the same without them.
I've been coming to this tree ever since I was a little girl and I never get tired of looking at it.
I recently took my little cousin to this favorite place, for pictures.
As you can see it was a magical time and we had the tree almost all to ourselves.
Stay safe this Forth of July and go on an adventure!

Wind Tossed

 Sisters are forever.




This outtake was too cute not to share!!!
She made this face when the wind blew her hair out of place! haha

 Sometimes magic happens when you stop fighting the wind.  
 My mom's mini me!



Just keep dreaming.



 Your sister is your first best friend.

 As you can see my cousins made my job very easy!










 Our family is multicultural and none of my Grandma's grandchildren really look the same.
(Except for Colton and Chase #twinning)
These Cousins have a 1/2 Filipino dad and their mom (my mom's sister) is 1/2 Korean.
When you combine all of the genes it really is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get!
Of course the results are stunning and the girls so special inside and out.
One is a kick butt athlete, another a total genius and last but not least, one has the makings of a top chef.
Each has her future in her hands and can accomplish anything she sets her mind to.
I might be a little bit biased but I do believe in them and I wish we all lived closer so we could see each other more often!

Two of the girls have left with my aunt today but one remains and we will be taking more pictures!!! :)
Keep a look out!

Wistful


I love the sights of summer.
And of course capturing them with my camera.
This gorgeous lavender gown was made and worn for a wedding in the 1950s.
It's beautiful when people wear fun colors on their wedding day! 
I adore tulle and this soft color was just perfect. 
The dress is from SassySisterVintage click the link to see this dress and many others while they are still available!!!

Almost There.










I Love my family and as cliché as it sounds, They grow up so fast!!!
My Cousin is graduating from high school next year and while her family is visiting us for the summer we did a few senior portraits!
In no time at all she will be graduating.
The question isn't, "is she ready for the world?" but "Is the world ready for her?".

While I was putting on her makeup before the shoot we were talking about life and love and I told her that I didn't really believe in soul mates.
I told her instead I believe in many people that you can have a strong connection with and a love for.
But I take it back!
I believe that your soul mates are the ones you are born with, your family, the people who drive you crazy but you wouldn't want to be without them.
We are loud when we get together and our schedules revolve around mealtimes.
We love unconditionally and we laugh at each other's corny jokes.
Without my family I am not myself.
