It was exactly one year ago when (after a heck of a storm) I watched teary-eyed from the sidelines as Samantha + Nick tied the knot. And now here they are, so full of love (and a little bundle of something else).
It was my first maternity shoot. I was BEYOND excited! I spent hours researching poses and coming up with a game place (yes, all photographers work hours before and after the shoot!).
And then night before I got a text from Amanda Light, "Going to have to swap maternity shoot for newborn shoot... Had baby this morning. :)"
Well ok then! Bring on the cuteness. #bestlaidplans
It was a gorgeous day in Driftwood, TX -- just another affirmation from God that this was *THE DAY* he created day for Haley and Zach -- a day to promise their eternal faithfulness to each other at the historic Stonehouse Villa. As both best man, Joshua Zamora, and maid of honor, Erin Scheler, said in their toasts they knew instantly that this couple was different together than they had ever been apart.
I've watched this family laugh in the face of life's storms before, so I was not surprised to learn that it takes more than a little rain to phase the Salinas family (Nick, Sam, Jasmine, Kasidie, Nichole and Lauren).
Recently, they allowed me to capture their sweet personalities on a rainy Friday at Lick Creek Park in College Station, TX.
