Jessica Shae: portraits // dallas, tx portrait photographer

So, remember those portraits of Jessica I promised you the other day?
I didn't keep my promise to post them in a week.
But two weeks instead of one isn't totally it?
Forgive me?
Still Friends?
Good. :)
Oh, and I also feel like I should briefly mention the redesign going on around here. I was way beyond fed up with the old one. To be blunt - it stunk. Don't be shy to think the same thing. It did. Changes were down right necessary. New logo, new color scheme, new picture size...the works. So, what are you thinking so far? Give me some feedback. Nothing is in the "STOP RIGHT THERE AND DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING I LOVE IT!!" stage so feel free to be honest on what you love, what you don't love so much, or what you sorta kinda like a little bit but it would be better if I changed it to something a little more like...well, whatever you think. :)
Ok, I'm done yakking now...on to the beauty. :)

And when one is talking about Jessica there is indeed a lot of beauty to address...both inside and out. :)

She is a deep soul...dear friend, lovely person, wildly creative individual, dear sister/daughter, darling girlfriend to Joshua Caleb {hehe ;) had to add that}, awesome photographer, faithful follower of Christ...

And be careful,  her smile is very contagious. :)

Her laugh is also the most adorable thing ever. :D

I'm serious. The.most.adorable.

Love ya, Jessica girl :)

You're really great. :)

P.S. If you're wondering why I didn't get to post last Monday its because it was my first day at my new job at my pastor's {who is also a dentist} office.

sorry...its kinda a leetle exciting. ;)
P.P.S. Scrubs make an individual feel like 25 years older. Its a strange phenomenon. My mother says they make me look older...but that theory is yet to be proven. For now I'm just trying to get over that feeling that I'm just a little kid pretending to be an adult. My normal coping mechanism is taking 37 deep breaths and trying not to hide under the desk when the phone rings... while still remembering where all the bathrooms are and where all the doors lead to...all this while still maintaining consciousness and being able to put intelligent sentences together. ;)
P.P.P.S. If you're reading this and its Monday morning, I'm actually working while you read so if you could stop laughing hysterically at my cowardice for like two seconds and pray that I survive, that would be stupendous. ;) 
{Juuuuust kidding...For real, I have the dearest, most darling bestie for a coworker and super amazing boss helping me stay afloat in this ocean of scaredycatishness. I'm really blessed beyond measure and am so very very thankful. :D}

Joshua Caleb & Jessica Shae: boy meets girl // arlington, tx couple photographer

Couple pictures accompanied by some quotes from a few choice love songs on Valentine's Day.
Precious? Yes! Cheesy? Maybe a little.
Call it what you will; either way you're still about to behold a post full of pictures of a couple so adorable, I'm quite sure you'll never forget it. :)

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I've never seen the sky before
Everyday I love you more and more
Come what may || David Baerwald

It's my caution not the cold
there's no other hand that i would rather hold
the climate changes, I'm singing for the strangers about you
don't keep time, slow the pace
Honey hold on if you can
the bets are getting surer now that you're my man

Love is Waiting || Brooke Fraser

Would you walk to the edge of the ocean
Just to fill my jar with sand ...

Would you catch a couple thousand fireflies 
Put them in a lamp to light my world
All dressed up in tux and bow tie hand delivered to a lonely girl...

Well, I don't want the whole world 
The sun and moon and all their light
I just want to be the only girl, You love all your life

All Your Life || The Band Perry 

Take my hand, 
Take my whole life too
Cause I can't help
falling in love with you.
Can't Help Falling In Love || Elvis Presley

Love songs aside, this looks like they just saw each other for the first time. Like really saw each other for the first time. You know that moment that it hits both of you? That crazy feeling of:
This person is just about the most wonderful I've ever met.
You make me feel so young.
You make me feel there are songs to be sung,
Bells to be rung, and a wonderful fling to be flung,
And even when I'm old and gray
I'm gonna feel the way I do today
'Cause you make me feel so young...
You make me feel so young.
You make me feel so "Spring has sprung",
And every time I see you grin
I'm such a happy individual.
You Make Me Feel So Young || Frank Sinatra
They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this...
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will
Lucky || Jason Mraz feat. Colbie Caillat
You look like summer
To these winter eyes
I can't keep them off you
I do apologize...
You're the creme de la creme
You're the sugar in my tea...
You've conquered me entirely
Creme de la Creme || Annie Brooks
I needed the shelter of someone's arms 
And there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs
 And there you were...

With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotions
I want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How Sweet It Is || James Taylor

Don't know how I lived without you
Cause every time that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile...

You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Smile || Uncle Kracker

If you were a melody
I'd sing you all the time
And if your hands were poetry
I'd memorize every line

And if every look you gave me were
A different hue or shade of color
I'd learn how to paint you

Try || Jillian Edwards

If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I'd find a match.

If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I'll make it better.

I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.

Cause I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.

The Way I Am || Ingrid Michaelson

There is no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a, shoebox of photographs
With sepia-toned loving...

Love is the answer,
At least for most of the questions in my heart

Better Together || Jack Johnson

Do you hear that love? they're playing our song

Take my hand, I'll teach you to dance
I'll spin you around won't let you fall down
Would you let me lead? You can step on my feet
Give it a try, it'll be alright
The room's hush hush and now's our moment.
Take it in, feel it all and hold it
Eyes on you, eyes on me.
We're doing this right.

'Cause lovers dance when they're feeling in love
Spotlight's shining it's all about us it's all about us
And every heart in the room will melt
This is a feeling I've never felt
But it's all about us
All About Us || He is We feat. Owl City
Chances are birds on the branches
Are no match for soaring hearts caught in romance
Is there anything stronger or higher than love when it's true, so true?
And the glorious thing is that when we get wind
We can soar in the place where the daydreamers dream
Let's refuse to stay here on the floor
When they're is more to be had, we must see what's in store
Steal Away || Jimmy Needham
When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.
When I Fall in Love || Nat King Cole
