Mini Session at Mandalay Canals — Sunset Hour

Phoebe and Leighton booked a mini session with me, to capture some fun moments they could look back on and remember this time in their lives. (Not difficult at ALL when the couple is as natural and fun-loving as they are!) Like me, they made the move from California to Texas. They have been together for over 11 years!

During their mini session, the sunset was the perfect compliment to Phoebe’s bright pink dress and Leighton’s fun banana-yellow socks. And after our session had ended and we parted ways, Phoebe sent me a message saying “Thank you so much for making us feel so comfortable during the shoot!” And honestly, how could I not with such a bright, loving couple like them?

What’s great about mini sessions is they are perfect for couples, families, and even proposals! You get to spend quality time together, with zero worries about reorganizing your entire afternoon for picture-taking, and move quickly from site to site at our location. With Phoebe and Leighton, we got some detail shots, candid and gorgeous images, romantic feels, and lots of laughter and joy.

“She is a 12/10 photographer.

She was absolutely wonderful to work with and made us feel really comfortable. I got her information from a friend and they said she had the exact style we were looking for. She really encapsulates real couples. She isn’t someone who is going to over-edit, create over dramatics and make a stuffy atmosphere. She is the sweetest, honest and really down to earth person who loves her job! After getting my engagement photos back I cannot wait for my wedding!
