Kristen & Jonathan’s Maternity Session: Family Ranch in Poteet, TX

Okay guys, so life has been nothing short of crazy. In the last couple of months I was able to experience a new chapter in life for my sister, Kristan and my brother in law, Jonathan. THEY ARE PARENTS! Yes, I said it! In the cold month of January, we went out at the Family Ranch where Kristan & I grew up and photographed their maternity session.

Our homestead where we grew up will always be special to us as not only is where we spent our time as kiddos, but it’s where our journey started to find our inner selves. Growing up we would petal our bikes to the top of this hill (where this gorgeous tree is) and ride around going on adventures. We would pretend our bikes would transport us to somewhere exotic, somewhere beyond the ranch. Then on other days we would take our backpacks and load them with plastic tea cups, one too many Lil’ Debbie Snacks (#starcrunchesforlife) and have a formal ranch tea party under the trees. Now, I loved our tea parties but sometimes I was little extra and Kristan was a tomboy. So we compromised with our tea parties aka sandwiches and coke & my Lil’ Debbies, taking place at the old tank. Kristan along with our pup, Pistol, would fish and fish until practically we #1) ran out of snacks or #2) ran out of daytime #3) ran out of energy and didn’t want to haul the red wagon up the hill to the house. So fast forward, many years later after high school, college, we met our soul mates and are now wives and mama bears.

It’s still crazy to think that we are “adults” as we were just kids that were just seeking adventures. It was within this moment, I really started to look at Kristan different. She was about to be mother, a caregiver, and she just glowed! Our memories will always be ours but now the start of new memories as mothers to our kids taking their bikes (and likely my Parker will hoard all the Lil’ Debbies like I did) and going on their own adventures. Also we will understand why Mom would preach to us about not being able to see us from the kitchen window.  Ha! Oh the worrying has already begun! And I am looking forward to the memories Parker & Lexi will make together! Til’ then take a look at these beauties – holy cow I could have cried.

"Jessicas passion for photography radiated from her soul the moment I met her. When looking for a photographer, We decided that we would call a few to get a feel for the type of people they were and if they (the photographer) would fit into what we were looking for in our wedding vendors. We saw your work, we LOVED your work, but we didn’t know you. From our first conversation up until now you made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day! Day of you made me feel like the prettiest bride to ever walk this planet! Your photos blew my husband (I love saying “husband”) away! You captured the uniqueness and beauty of us, our surroundings and our guest! This review, nor my “thank you”, will ever be enough to show you how grateful we are for your talent!"

"I was so lucky to have Jessica as my photographer. I am absolutely thrilled with my engagement and wedding photos. The first time I spoke to her on the phone, I immediately liked her. It was important to me for me to actually LIKE my photographer because you really do spend a lot of time with them on one of the most important days in your life. The reason it is so important to be comfortable around them is because IT WILL show in your face if you’re not. My husband and I really enjoyed our photoshoots with Jessica. It can be kinda awkward to take a lot of photos but she is so funny and goofy that she kept both of us laughing and relaxed. As for the photos, they are BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, these are the nicest pictures anyone has taken of me. The pictures are light, bright, and airy. I feel like a beautiful bride when I look at them. They are so nice in fact, that the company that made my wedding dress, Jasmine Bridal, has featured my photos several times! Jessica is also a really creative person and will find ways to make your photos look amazing. During our wedding reception, I was kinda tired after a LONG day but she had a great idea to do these romantic night time shots. I am SO GLAD I decided to do them. They are absolutely gorgeous. It’s hard to believe it's me and my husband! Like, that’s us?? She made us look SO GOOD! And really, that’s all you want. You want to love your pictures and be happy with them because they are an investment. I know that I’ll look at these photos many years from now and still enjoy them - that’s how happy I am with them."
