Sarah Schnakenberg | Portraits | New Waverly Texas | March 2014

“Dear old world', she murmured, 'you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.” ― L.M. MontgomeryAnne of Green Gables
On the day before Sarah's 14th birthday this March, the air was frozen. It had rained all day, and then it froze and rained again, the wind was full of ice and it stuck in our lungs and held onto our coats and hands like kisses. We had been bundled up inside all day, watching tv, mulling through another day of school work and the storm halted and the sun broke out. We threw on our boots and ran out the door as soon as we could and took these for her birthday. It was fun. (Cold! But fun.)

Breeze Mardis | New Waverly Texas | January 2014


“She turned to the sunlight    And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor:    "Winter is dead.” ― A.A. MilneWhen We Were Very Young
On the day we photographed for Tanner Mardis' MAKE shirt, I took some portraits of this great lady and we had fun (despite the cold.) Let's do it again sometime, eh?

Booking for the rest of April and into the beginning of May right now! I'm leaving on May 20th for Chicago, so if you want portraits with be between now and then, get in touch! I still have free dates.
