Welcome to Texas Y’all!
Hello friends. After a long much needed break I thought I’d fill you in on what Vintage Creek Photography has been up to the last few years. I’ve been silent when it comes to blog posts so you can expect to see a lot more of these now that we are up and running again. We’ll talk about everything from Fashion and make-up choices, to the right kind of dress and material for your underwater photo session. I’ll even go over editing tips and pool tricks!
First, let’s see where I’ve been the last few years.
In 2014, Dan, my husband, Audrey, my daughter and I moved from Loomis, California to Schertz, Texas, a suburb of San Antonio. Not only did the photography business move with us, but so did a large portion of the family. My parents and brother joined us in this exciting adventure of relocating halfway across the county. They now live about 30 miles from our new home.
To our surprise and joy, my mother in-law and sister in law also moved to the area a few months later. The move was long and painful; 3 dogs, one cat, one 4 year old and a grandma….it was crazy!
A few weeks before we moved I found out I was expecting my second child. We decided that the photography business would be put on hold, while we figured everything out. This turned in to a huge blessing as I was sick almost my whole pregnancy and would not have been able to give my clients the time they deserved.
We welcomed Emmalyn Grace to the family in April of 2015.
I had a wonderful photography friend named Kim Shuck take these amazing images of my new baby! If you are in the Schertz/Cibolo area I totally recommend her for newborns!
We moved out of the rental and into a home we could call our own just two weeks later! Yep, it was a busy month. The next year was spent bonding with baby and creating memories as a family. Always having the photography business in the back of my mind but never feeling like the time was right.
Now that our newest addition to the family is old enough to not need constant care. I decided that it is now time to start doing what I love again. Being able to capture photographs of high school seniors that they will cherish their whole lives is what I get most excited about. I love the way a photograph can make you feel, how it can bring back the best memories in an instant.
I’ve also decided to continue to specialize in underwater photography. This is a new and unusual style of photography that is something that I absolutely LOVE. I’m all about making each and every session unique and what better way to do that then offer my clients a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
In just the short time that I’ve been back to photographing since moving to Texas, I’ve had some amazing experiences. I have a few publications coming out very soon and I can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!
