Houston Engagement Portraits :: Candis and Jason

November 30th, 2010  |  Posted in engagement, portrait

I’m excited for you to meet Candis and Jason.  These two cuties said they didn’t want a mushy photoshoot for their engagement session and I was thrilled to oblige!  If you’ve been following this little blog you know I’m biased toward authentic truthful images that reflect a couple as they really are and these two are  fun and laid-back so the beach, putt-putt golf and a little construction equipment was perfect.   Stay turned for more of these two.  Bridal portraits and their wedding are coming soon!

I am truly thankful for so many things in my life. I thought I’d just show you a quick fun thing. It’s the little stuff that always makes me smile and I like to smile. I hope this will do the same for you and have a great Thanksgiving.

Fun Food Friday :: ASMP BBQ Road Trip Part 2

November 5th, 2010  |  Posted in fun food friday, personal

Welcome to Texas, the land of meat and BBQ. This past month the Houston ASMP decided, after many requests, to do another BBQ road trip to Luling and Lockhart. This time ASMP Austin San Antonio had a strong showing too. It was a lot of fun and I found couple new yummy things. Take a peek and please let me know if you ever want to make a trip out to the BBQ Capital of the World!

I love how all the BBQ guys wear the hard hats. It’s a tough job.

I love this sign. The smoke has colored it over the years and it just makes me smile.

Todd Spoth knows the secret of a good Texas BBQ experience, Big Red. I wish I had a tally of how many Big Reds people drank on this trip.

Sausage Sandwich at Luling. I so want one now.

The crowd at my favorite place, Luling City Market.

Waiting at Smitty’s. Mmmmm…pork chops.

Dave Einsel’s Meat order.

Dave’s tower of meat, yes he finished it.

And so Dave thought he’d do a little exercise.

To cap off the day of meat we stopped at Black’s for dessert. There are two great things here, peach cobbler and the BBQ turkey. Probably the best turkey I have ever had. yum yum yum.

Also, I’ll share in closing a great quote I saw today. “Stressed? Spell it backwards for the cure. Desserts,” author unknown.
