A Half-birthday {Custom Infant Portraits Richmond, Texas}

Today little Miss Paige came to the studio to get her 6 month portraits.  She was SO good and only started to fuss at the very end.  Loved all the outfits Mom brought along!  What is not to love about pink, frills, and bows?  I seriously could have squished this baby all day long. 

Thank you for choosing me to photograph your sweet little girl.  Happy Half-birthday Paige!

A little girl and her pup {Custom Child Portraiture Richmond, Texas}

You may remember Zoë from our session back in February.  She is such a cutie pie!  This time we got together to take some photos for her Grandma.  Zoë brought along her dog Kuppholder for the session.  Talk about one cute little pup.  He was so well behaved and he kept wanting to love on Zoë.  Adorable.

Thank you for another fun session!  I am looking forward to your family session.

Mr. Handsome {Headshot Photography Houston, Texas}

Jared and I met up to do some photos for his modeling portfolio.  He is so much fun to photograph!  Jared is not only very good looking, but also has the most fun, outgoing, fantastic personality.  A photographer's dream model. 

Jared, I cannot wait to photograph you again soon!  I had a blast.

The sweetest little button {Custom Child Photography in Richmond, Texas}

A friend of mine called my first client today "a button so sweet" and after meeting her today I couldn't agree more. Meet Janaki. She was a super sweet, little bit shy, dancin' like Word Girl, twirling like a princess cutie pie.

 Thank you for choosing me to photograph your little sweetheart.  I look forward to meeting the rest of the family!

Brown eyes {Creative Senior Photography in San Antonio, Texas}

I had a great time getting to know Jillian during our session and watching her come out of her shell. She was a little bit shy at first, but has spectacular brown eyes that spoke right to my camera.

I hope you enjoy your preview!

A name twin {San Antonio, Texas Custom Child Photography}

Meet Susan's daughter, Ember. She shares a name with my daughter and they are only two months apart in age. Funny thing is, both girl's dads (who have never met) got to do the naming this time.  Well, she recently turned one, learned how to walk, and no longer likes to sit still.  So, I set my camera speed really fast and danced like a monkey to keep her attention long enough to get some absolutely adorable shots.  

See you again in the summer! I am sure you will have grown tons.

As stunning as ever {San Antonio, Texas Custom Portraiture}

While in San Antonio, I met up with an old friend of mine for a session downtown. I have known Susan for about 14 years and she has always been beautiful. She is doing a bit of modeling now so we did some fun shots to add to her modeling portfolio. Who would ever guess she had a baby a year ago. She looks amazing!

Thanks girl for such a fantastic session! You are great in front of the camera. I can't wait for your family session this summer!

And one more makes four {Richmond, Texas Custom Maternity Photography}

It has been a while since I last photographed a maternity session.  Today's session made me realize how much I have missed it.  There is something so beautiful about a woman who is expecting.  I know everyone says there is "a glow", but I really do feel like pregnant women do have a glow about them.  And there is such a mood of excitement and anticipation in the air. I just love it!

Meet the "F" family!  They are expecting their second baby in a few months.  This time a little girl.

Congratulations "F" family!  I hope you enjoyed your preview.  I can't wait to meet your little girl very soon.

There's no place like home, except Nana's {San Antonio, Texas Custom Children's Photography}

Every once in a while I get a session booked by a grandparent.  This one happened to be particularly close to my  heart.  This session was for my mom... our Nana.  Between me and my sister we have five children and we have very few photos of all the kids together especially one that would be "wall worthy".  So, my mom scheduled a session with me to do a group session with the children to update her frame above the TV.  It was chaotic, to say the least.  Ha ha. 

I hope you enjoy your sneak peek Nana!  I promise to have the whole session gallery up ASAP.  :)

 Thank you Mom for still paying me because you know it is my livelihood even though I am your daughter.  :)

A mother's treasure {San Antonio, Texas Custom Family Photography}

My first session in San Antonio was a super fun mother-daughter pair. Lindsay and Chloe were such a blast to photograph! When I asked Lindsay her portrait style, she said "anything FUN". Chloe was such a little model and not at all shy in front of the camera. 
"A mother's treasure is her daughter."

Thank you Lindsay for choosing me to photograph the special bond between you and Chloe! It was such a joy capturing the two of you interacting. I hope to see you again on the next visit to San Antonio.
