My Wish.

1.29.16

Before my grandma left us, I spoke with her over the phone about Jeff and I’s journey to start a family. She said, “I hope you have one boy, one girl, maybe even twins. But most of all, I hope you have a healthy baby.” She left us two weeks later, the same time I found out I was pregnant. Somehow I feel like she already knew and was ready to depart us, making my mom the new grandma, and me, a mom. I miss her dearly and wish she could have been able to see our baby grow up. But God’s timing and plans are perfect and I must trust in Him and His ways. Jeff and I are delighted for the arrival of our baby girl. We hope she will be a loving and faithful servant to the Lord and His Kingdom.

“God has more in store for you than you can even imagine.”

We got married three and a half years ago. We now have a goofy pup named Sydney and a wiggling baby on the way. I can’t see what’s in store for us in the next few months and more. xo

One.

ANDREA + RAYMOND met at TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY as freshmen. For the proposal, RAYMOND decorated a small area in TURTLE CREEK PARK in Dallas, TX with mason jars and baby’s breath. He popped the question to ANDREA with all of their family and closest friends nearby, waiting to congratulate them. From the moment the couple drove into THE GROVE at Aubrey, TX, they immediately knew that this was the place for their wedding. They were taken by the beautiful trees leading into the venue, its spaciousness, and yet intimate feel. I loved photographing RAYMOND + ANDREA’S wedding at THE GROVE. It was such a sweet and gorgeous wedding!

Thank you ANDREA + RAYMOND for the chance to capture these memories for you and your loved ones to enjoy!
