It’s almost time, I’ve also been tying up loose ends with the Dealing for Duchenne fundraiser that is this coming up Saturday at the UT Golf Club.  I know Julie and the other co-chairs have been working so hard to get ready and it’s going to be SO worth it!  It’s not too late to get your tickets, it’s going to be an awesome night, famous people, casino gambling, an auction, all for a great cause!  I am donating a full session to the silent auction, I can’t wait to see who wins it!!  More than anything, I can’t wait to see Tim, Laura, Timmy and Andrew surrounded by love […]

I want to live.

Laura and Tim are in the fight of their lives.  Every day.  They are fighting to save their son.  Working, looking, praying for a cure for Duchenne.  Sadly, there are thousands of other families, just like them, who have a son with Duchenne, fighting the same battle.  They are fighting time.  And my heart aches for them.

Duchenne is fatal.

There is no cure.

But there is hope.

I knew from the moment I was asked to photograph this family that they would change me.  I knew I’d learn a lot about Duchenne, something I knew very little about.  I knew I’d come home and hug my children tighter, appreciate the smaller moments a little more.  I knew I’d cry proofing their photos.  More […]

Timmy is back!   Going to UT and photographing Timmy and his family with Mack & Sally Brown and having the run of the field was so much fun (for all of us!).  But I wanted to give this family something more.  I spent the afternoon today with them at their home in an effort to capture real, everyday moments of their family.  Casual, fun, just being themselves, doing what they do, loving their boys, running around, exploring dirt and rocks and sticks, going for a walk, sippy cups and hugs.  And I’m so glad I did, it was such a nice way to spend an afternoon.  I didn’t think Timmy could steal my heart any more than he already […]

With all of this talk of cancer research and MD Anderson and kicking cancer to the curb, Alex has been on my mind a lot.  I know many of you were touched by his family and their story, so I wanted to post an update with his permission.  Alex celebrated his birthday on the 4th and I left him a happy birthday message.  I was so, so sad to hear the news that cancer has spread to his liver and he has started another round of treatment.  I know they can use all the prayers we can possibly send their way as he fights for his life.  So if you are the praying kind, please keep Alex, Danielle, Lexi […]

Are you sitting down?  You’ll never guess how much we raised.  I’m still in shock over it all.  Shock.  No really, it’s amazing to me that just a few people can spend a little time on a weekend and do something GOOD.  It sure does make all my other weekends feel very unproductive.  Can you imagine what a difference place we would live in if people would just DO something.  Anything!  Use your talent, use your skill, use your time, just DO something.  It feels awesome.  I feel so good that so many people showed up for this event, gave with their hearts and that so many people entered this giveaway.  The number is big.  BIG.
