Three generations {Family Photography in Katy, TX}

Nothing can compare to the love of a grandma. And I was so excited to get to capture not only Granny but also GREAT-grandma (Mimi) in this session. I just loved getting to see the warmth coming out of Mimi's eyes when she looked at those babies. A very special evening indeed.
 Happy 90th Birthday, Mimi!!  Thanks for choosing me to once again be a part of such a special occasion.  :)

Lollipop {Child Birthday Photography in Katy, TX}

Members of the "H" family have been showing up frequently on the blog this year.  This time, we got together for Ava's 2 Year Portraits (and a very special session that will be blogged tomorrow).  She loves being in the spotlight and getting all the attention just like my middle child.  She was SUPER excited when Mom handed her a lollipop halfway through our session.  That white dress didn't stay white for very long.  lol
I will have your special session sneak peek up tomorrow. :)

Neigh and Baa {Maternity Photography in Richmond, TX}

Yesterday, the "S" family came to the studio for a maternity session.  They have the cutest little boy who is very close to becoming a big brother.  He was much more interested in playing than with getting pictures with his little sister's baby bump.  Funny thing was that he didn't want to be in the pictures, so that meant Dad couldn't be in them either. We were able to sneak in some great shots of the whole family.  Even Neigh and Baa got to make a cameo appearance.  :)
I am looking forward to meeting that sweet little girl of yours in just a few weeks!

The big ONE {Children's Photography in Katy, TX}

I met up this morning with the "C" family for Madison's 1st Birthday Portraits.  She has gorgeous blue eyes and everything mom brought for her to wear brought out those blue eyes like you wouldn't believe.   We also had some time for a few shots with her older brother.
Enjoy your sneak peek.  :)  It was nice meeting you all today and I look forward to future sessions with your family.

Not too long ago I was a sponsor for Win-it-Week over at and one lucky mom won a free session with me.  If you are a mom in the Houston area you should check the site out.  It is free and you have the opportunity to win a bunch of free stuff!  Mrs. H was the lucky winner and we got together yesterday in the studio to shoot her session.
Congratulations!  It was so nice to finally meet you in person.

A gorgeous graduate {Graduation Portraits in San Antonio, TX}

I had a great time photographing Chelsea in her cap and gown for her graduation portraits.  She is absolutely stunning and very relaxed in front of the camera.  When those two traits combine, it always makes for an awesome session.

Congratulations Chelsea!  Have fun at Cal State!


Need a realtor? {Custom Headshot Photography in San Antonio, TX}

While in San Antonio, I met up with Donnie Hathorne of Premier Properties and Real Estate Ranch for a session. He was looking for some updated headshots for his business cards and website.  It had been years since I had seen him and he drove in all the way from Midland, Texas to work with me. Okay, maybe he had planned to be in town for Father's Day, too.  We are both originally from San Antonio.  :) If you are looking for a Ranch, Residential, or Commercial property in West Texas, Central Texas, or South Texas, Donnie can help you out.

It was great to see you again after all these years.

Isn't she lovely? {Custom Newborn Photography in Houston, TX}

I have been waiting months to meet this little sweetheart! I photographed the family for a maternity session

Congratulations!  She is so darling.  I enjoyed my evening with you last night and look forward to future sessions with your family.

Chubby Yummy {Newborn Photography in Richmond, TX}

Let me introduce to you baby Chase.  At 11 days old, he is over 10 pounds and full of chubby yumminess.  I mean, can you even stand it!?  I just wanted to snuggle that little guy all afternoon.
Congratulations "K" Family!  I look forward to your family session in a few months.

Cake {Custom Birthday Portraits in Katy, TX}

I was so excited to photograph Vivienne for her one year session!  I love birthdays and first year birthdays especially.  It is so fun getting to do the "smash the cake" session with the little ones.  They either hate it or love it.  Well, Vivi LOVED it!  I have never seen a kid go after cake the way she did.  A girl after my own heart.  The last one is my favorite.  She is looking at her hands like she is concerned about being dirty, however her feet are sitting IN the cake.  lol
Happy 1st Birthday sweet girl!

My three sons, cont. {Custom Maternity Photography in Richmond, TX}

I am sure you remember the "F" family from their maternity session a few months back.  Well, the testosterone level in that family has increased just a bit more with the birth of their third son, Bode.  He is so cute with his old man jowl.  Once he settled, he was so easy to pose that I was able to put a few different hats on him, too.

I enjoyed photographing your precious baby boy and look forward to future sessions with the whole gang.

Early arrival {Custom Newborn Photography in Missouri City, TX}

I got a call earlier than expected for this little beauty and I couldn't wait to photograph her while she is still so itty bitty.  Meet Olivia.  She was super sweet and cooperative for our session tonight.  I really think she could have spent all night in the stork pouch.
Thank you for choosing me to photograph your precious baby girl.  I had a really great time photographing your beautiful family and I hope to capture Olivia's growth throughout the years.

A Blessed Day (times two) {Child Baptism Photography in Houston, TX}

This weekend, I was honored to photograph the baptism of beautiful Lily.   It was a lovely intimate event with their family.  Her mother wrote a touching post that I thought I would share here since I couldn't have found a more beautiful way of saying it. 

"Welcome, precious little child so fresh from God above. Baptized today in Jesus' name, held in His arms of love. May angels guide your tiny feet and bring you smiles to wear. And may our Heavenly Father always keep you in His care my sweet Lily Grace!"
What made the day even more special is that Lily's cousin, Luke, was also baptized alongside of Lily. 
How cute are those little socks?  
Thank you for choosing me to capture such a special day in your lives!  Your children are precious and I am so glad that I was able to share in your happiness.

All smiles {Custom Child Photography in Houston, TX}

You may remember little Miss Avery from her bluebonnet session back in April.  She was a bit reluctant at our last session and took some time to warm up to the idea of being photographed.  Well, all of that has changed!  This time she was all smiles. 
Thank you again for continuing to choose me for your portrait needs.  Hope to see you guys again in July.  ;)
