{ extend a memory } - mama. photographer. stylist. yogi. austin, tx

To prolong a memory you must recreate it again and again in your mind. A photo is the easiest and most effective way to deepen and savor a passing moment. I hope these are never lost. The loves of my life, the greatest gifts of all, the reason I try.

It can't always be serious...not in our world anyway.

go. play. love. live. hug. kiss. take a lot of photos. xo y'all.

{ lovers and such } - yogi. mama. daughter. austin, tx

to whom it may concern,

I watched her drop her chin,
shrug her shoulders to protect her cheek from his lips.
Shudder at the touch of his hand to her back.
What joy you missed.
Self prescribed punishment.

I saw his heart fall to his belly,
rejection leaked like tears at the corner of his eyes.
So much tenderness to give and no alter to receive.
Love turned to fear.
Lessons learned only very late.

I've seen the boys strategically half naked,
the girls in their well planned garments for attention.
A precious dance they step and sway as children on the brink.
Endearment grows as lust.
They know not a difference.

I have felt a hand at my face,
pressed my skin into the pressure of a tender touch.
Fallen heart first for kindness and the lack of.
Given my all to nothing.
Lingered in sweetness of exchange.
