Katie+Brian+baby=Gaeth

It's baby time again! Katie and Brian are about to be parents. When we met up for these pictures I asked her how far along she was, she said 9 months! I was actually a little nervous to walk too far away from a car because I was just thinking OH MY GOODNESS WHAT IF SHE HAS IT NOW?! They assured me we were fine though. ;)

Allyson+Daniel+baby=Gonzalez

Allyson & Daniel will always be special to me. I photographed their wedding about four(ish) years ago. I had just starting my own business and they trusted me enough to let me photograph their wedding. I always look at their wedding as a turning point in my photography. I was shooting weddings but I was shooting "in my own little box" and not venturing out for new looks, ideas, and poses. Allyson sent me an email with several different things she wanted to do. I tried them, and it worked out great! We were all so happy with the pictures and I'm so grateful she "pushed" me.

They are expecting a little baby boy now. I can't wait to meet him! She said they will be back next May(they've moved to Alaska since the wedding) and she wants me to do his first year pictures too! I'm stoked!

It kept raining off and on;)

I love the way they laugh together...

Matt+Monica+Abby

HEY!!!! I've had so much going on in the last month. I've been so excited about this blog post and I've finally been able to do it today! Monica & Matt are my best friend Michelle's sister & brother-in-law.

Location: Huntsville, Texas aka my second home!

Let me tell you a little story. Monica & Matt met at Kaldis (a small coffee shop in Huntsville, Texas - GO SAM!). It was there that they started getting to know each other, talking about their mutual desire for Christ, sharing their testimonies and well, falling in love with each other.

Three years ago this month I flew to Texas to shoot their engagement pictures. I went through my old files and found these!

At Kaldis, doing their favorite thing.

A few months later....they got married...I did their rehearsal pictures & their wedding pictures....

This past November (2009) Abby came into the picture!!! I met up their family in Panama City Beach, Florida and did a maternity shoot of them.

Last month they flew me to Texas to do Abby's very first photo shoot!

Monica reading the Bible to little Abby.

They are such amazing parents! I'm so proud of them! It has been SUCH an honor to photograph the story of your lives. I love y'all so much!

Love,Β  Ashah
