The new location opened earlier this year in March.

Owner Aubree Snipes has had her business on Port Neches Avenue going on five years, but now she is able to move into a bigger building.

Formerly a teacher with a bachelor’s degree in English, Snipes began her photography business as a way to spend more time with her children making memories, and as a way to help others make memories of their own through photography.

Another of Snipes’ new businesses, The Cotton Candy Bar, also provided a light, and sometimes alcoholic, treat for well-wishers.

Snipes hopes the all-organic, gourmet cotton candy will be a staple of modern events.
