The Ruby family: sneak peek :D {fort randolph, pineville, la portrait photographer}

A few days before Sam and Brianna's wedding weekend, I visited my best friend Allix and took her maternity/family photos. :D Remember the first time I did that? Over two years later and they now have another daughter due to join the outside world on St. Patrick's Day :D <3. 

I'm so honored and happy I got to capture this special time in y'all's lives. <3 Love y'all and see y'all in March :D :D.

Sam and Brianna: wedding sneak peek :D {sherwood baptist church, newcastle, ok wedding photographer}

Last May at a Bible camp in Arkansas, Brianna and I were in the lunch line and she asked me "Hey, you remember that guy we met with the beard?" Me: "Yeah! Sam Barnhart." Brianna: "He has the eyes of Zac Efron!" I look over at him sitting at one of the tables: "...he does! Haha." Brianna: "I want to tell him!" Me: "You should tell him!"

Later that afternoon, we and a few others are sitting on the grass watching the ultimate frisbee game, and Sam walks up. Brianna: "Hey, you have the eyes of Zac Efron!" Sam's mouth drops and he just stands there. Mrs. Kulis looks up at Sam and asks "Who's Zac Efron?" Sam: "Like the most good looking guy on the planet." Hahahaha.

This past weekend was the first time I had seen them in person as a couple and it brought me such joy: they truly are best friends and love each other so much <3 <3.

Sam and Brianna, I praise the Lord for bringing y'all together and I'm so glad I got to be a part of y'all's wedding day!! :D

Ethan: senior portraits sneak peek :D {mt. pleasant, tx senior portrait photographer}

Yesterday I had such a fun time taking senior picture for my good friend, honorary little brother, and brother in Christ: Ethan Newbold :D.

We've gone to church together for around 7 years and I sure am going to miss him when he goes to College of the Ozarks this fall!!

Ethan, I'm super proud of you and am so thankful to God for His work in you. And I think you'll do great in criminal investigation :).
