I loved getting to work with this family last weekend. It was especially fun to watch the boys sweet (and funny) personalities come out as we got to know each other….their smiles were so contagious! We had so much fun playing around, I’m pretty sure they forgot their pictures were even being taken…and that’s the way I like it!
I love getting to see my repeat families year after year…it’s so fun to see how much the kids have changed and grown…and everyone is usually a lot more comfortable just being themselves and having fun…I love to see that come across in pictures.
I cannot say enough great things about this family! I started working with them a little over two years ago when we moved back to Houston, and LOVE any chance I get the opportunity to hang out with them. They are clients turned friends in the best possible way. I was so excited to do an in home session and their brand new, gorgeous home last week!
I think it’s so important to capture stages of life in the places so dear to your family….that one reason I LOVE these in home sessions. Pressure is off, kids feel free to be silly…you have access to snacks, and WINE….and air conditioning!
I met Emilia just past her 1 week birthday last week. She is beautiful in every way, and it’s easy to see why her family is already head over heels for her.
I loved getting to meet Knox and his family a few weeks ago. We were celebrating a pretty big birthday…the big O.N.E.
He was not so sure about me at first, but as the session went on, I’m pretty sure we became friends…and we got lots of smiles until….we had the audacity to give him cake. =)
One of my very dear friends, Kat, asked me a few months back if I would take pictures at the birth of their fourth sweet baby. I think it took me a few moments before I caught my breath again because ..WOW. What an honor. I was overwhelmed at the thought of even getting to witness such a beautiful day, let alone having the opportunity to take pictures and capturing these important moments…..I mean, that’s a little bit of pressure!
Kat and Craig were both so unbelievable and open….and I just told them to pretend I wasn’t there. Ha!
And if that wasn’t enough….both Kat and Craig wanted to wait to find out if their last little one would be adding more blue or a splash of pink to the family….we were all in a bit of suspense. They did know that either way, Garner would be the perfect completion to their family…one they had been waiting and hoping for for a very long time.
I also decided to try something a little different…something that I haven’t done before.
I added a “life in motion” aspect to this session, and I think I’m hooked y’all. I hope to be doing lots more of these in the future.
A few weeks ago, I got to spend some time with Maverick and his parents. He was pretty perfect in every way.
I loved getting to meet little Eli and his parents a few weeks ago. Eli is well loved…not only by mom and dad, but his sweet grandma and dog, Riley too! I love getting to incorporate family members into newborn sessions…because it’s not only about this little one, but those who love him more than they ever did imagine.
This photo session was a long time coming. We originally scheduled in back in May, but that was around the time it rained for a month straight. Then we moved it to July, and that was when we realized that our original idea of an outdoor photo session was probably not going to turn out so great in 100 degree heat.
Well there were just too many good ones from this morning session, so I’m sharing quite a few with you!! I know I say it all the time, but I love getting to see my “newborns” grow up! This little guy is almost ready to celebrate his first birthday and I love any chance I get to photograph him and his family. Look at those baby blues!!
