One-of-a-kind {Richmond, TX Custom Child Photography}

In 2010 dare to be you! Everyone has their own unique quality that makes them fantastic. Don't be afraid to be yourself. Love yourself and you will be loved.

That fearlessness to be one-of-a-kind is the thing I treasure most about my oldest daughter. She dances to her own beat and what a lovely tune it is.

Boys { Richmond, TX Custom Family Photography}

BOY do I have another generation session for you!  This Grandma was given a surprise photo session of her and her grandchildren for her birthday.   I have never photographed so many boys in one family.  Not one little girl.  I  promised the boys that we could do some silly shots at the end if they were well behaved.  I have not had a better behaved group.  They were really great and I had so much fun.  They had me cracking up at the end with all their own poses.

I had a ton of fun at our session.  Boys, you better treat your Grandma like the queen she is!
Love, Chryshelle

Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa "M" {Richmond, TX Custom Generations Photography}

Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa "M" came to town for a visit to meet their newest great-granddaughter.  We had time for a mini-session so we headed into Richmond to the Railroad Museum.  I had such a wonderful time photographing the happy bunch.  I always enjoy grandparent sessions and this one was extra special since it went even a generation further. 

How lucky you are to get to see and enjoy your great-grandchildren.  I hope I will be so lucky one day.
Love, Chryshelle {Custom Generation Photographer}

The "M" Family {Katy,TX Custom Family Photography}

This weekend I headed over the the "M" Family's lovely home.  I couldn't wait to meet their newest addition Jonah.  We shot some photos in front of the family Christmas tree and then pulled out the backdrops for some fun time.  Lauren is definitely a portrait pro and her little brother Jonah is on his way to being one, too. 


I had a great time spending the afternoon with you all and look forward to future sessions with your beautiful family.

Asher's First Christmas {Richmond, TX Custom Holiday Photography}

Asher will be celebrating his first Christmas this year.  He had a great time playing with the bells, and feathers during our holiday session.


Enjoy your holiday session preview!  I am looking forward to photographing his first little teeth during our next session.
Love, Chryshelle


Asher, 6 Months {Richmond TX Custom Infant Photography}

Today I had Asher in the studio for his 6 month session. He is so cute and full of smiles. That is until he sees the camera.  I had to pull out the tripod, remote control, and every funny noise I could muster up to trick the smiles out, but it was definitely worth all the sweat to see those precious dimples of his. Look for his Christmas sneak peek coming soon.

Thank you for choosing me to be Asher's photographer.  I look forward to our future sessions with the whole family!

Love, Chryshelle

Punk Princess Boutique {Commercial Photography Richmond, TX}

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing 4 beautiful little girls during a boutique session for Punk Princess Boutique.

We spent nearly three hours at the park rotating clothing, poses, and of course lots and lots of hair bows.

I absolutely love photographing little girls.

I just can't get enough of the pink, ruffled, bowed, fanciness that come paired with the twirling, sweet silliness of a little girl!

Thank you for choosing me for your all your commercial photography needs.  I am already coming up with ideas for our next session.

Love, Chryshelle

The Thinker {Custom Children's Photographer Richmond, TX}

Those of you who know Tyler know that he is never without his big old smile.  Today I captured him deep in thought.  This photo is one of the very few times I have photographed him without the huge grin on his face.

Eyes so blue {Custom Photography Katy, TX}

Ember has the most amazing blue eyes to photograph! The depth of natural color and a sparkle that seems to dance for the camera. A rare pair.

WELCOME to my blog!

I have decided to create a blog in order to journal my experiences of seeing the world through my camera lens. I hope that you enjoy sharing in my journey!
