A perfect little pucker {Newborn Photography in The Woodlands, TX}

I recently photographed the "S" family for a maternity session and have been patiently awaiting the arrival of their little girl.  Welcome to the world Ava!  She is such a beauty with those chubby cheeks and perfect lips.   And isn't she so lucky to have such a sweet big brother?
Congratulations "S" family!  Guy's birthday sneak peek is coming up soon.  :)

Michael and Molly {Engagement Portraits in San Antonio, TX}

The main reason I scheduled a second trip this summer to San Antonio was this next couple. Molly and Michael are getting married! We woke up early and headed out to the McNay Art Institute for their engagement session. It is such a beautiful place and they were really easy going and lots of fun. I can't wait until the wedding in September!

Congratulations you two! See you in a couple of months. :)

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 new favorite color {Children's Photography in Richmond, TX}

I got together with Wyatt and Ashlyn for a model session this weekend and mom decided to tack on a full session so after we got done product modeling they changed into their "normal" clothes and we had some fun.  I have absolutely fallen in love with this orange wall!  Isn't it gorgeous with the blues in their outfits?
See you all again soon!

Just in the nick of time {Newborn Photography in San Antonio, TX}

I have been in contact with the "F" family for months, but this session was down to the wire with scheduling. Elleri made her introduction into this world several weeks too early and was released from the NICU just two days before I was to head home from San Antonio. I am so glad that I got a chance to meet her and catch up with mom!  She is so tiny and sweet.

Congratulations "F" family on another beautiful little girl!  Hope to see you again soon.

Brothers {Children's Photography in San Antonio, TX}

I couldn't believe when I got an email from someone to schedule a session that I hadn't seen in years.  And when I say years, I mean probably about 12.  I am so glad she did!  It amazes me how there are some people in this world that you can automatically reconnect with like no time has passed.  Well, a lot has changed since the last time we saw each other.  Mostly, all the kids we have.  lol  Funny thing is, both of our oldest children share the same name. 

Meet Tyler and Ryan.  The absolutely most fun and adorable pair of boys ever.  They were a joy to photograph and get along so well together.  They truly have a special bond.

I can't wait until you guys move back to Texas so the boys can become regulars on the blog.  :)

Freedom {Custom Child Photography in Houston, TX}

We headed out to the park for this little cutie's first birthday session. She just started walking recently. She is so excited about her new found freedom that she can hardly sit still a minute. So, I just followed her around like her own personal paparazzi. lol I love natural photojournalistic style photography, so this session was right up my alley.

Thank you again "M" family. I look forward to your family session in a few months!

Terrific Twos {Children's Photography in Richmond, TX}

Emery came in to the studio this weekend for her 2 year portraits. She is your typical two year old. Full of energy, experimentation, and boundary testing...wait, that sounds a lot like me and I am almost 30.   I guess some of us never grow out of it.  lol  In any case, I love a child that keeps me on my toes and constantly creating new ways to capture attention.  Some of my favorite images are ones that show the true personality of my clients and I think these came out perfect. 

While Em was changing, I got to flirt with her baby brother for a little while.  Isn't he sweet?
 Happy 2nd Birthday princess!  Hope to see you all soon.

Yummy Toes {Custom Baby Photography in Richmond, TX}

A while back I photographed the "M" family and have been looking forward to getting to spend some time with just Sidney.  She is one of those chubby yummy little babies that I adore.  They headed over to the studio for her 6 month portraits - one of my favorite milestones to capture!  It is so much fun when they just start sitting up and you have to be quick on the trigger before their rolie polie rear causes them to wobble over.  lol
She couldn't get enough of her toes.  Another thing I love about 6 month olds!
I had a great time this weekend and look forward to future sessions with your family.

Pink Ruffles {One Year Portraits in Houston, TX}

I headed out to Hermann Park this weekend.  It was the first time I had ever been to this location.  I love the way the images turned out! 

You probably will recognize these two beauties.  They have become regulars on the blog.  This time we met for Madelyn's 1st Birthday pictures and the always fun "smash the cake" picture.  Her raspberry pettiskirt was to die for!  While mom went to get the cake out of the car I had a little fun photographing big sister, too.  :)
I always have a great time with you all.  Thanks for choosing me for all your photography needs!!

Little Lamb {Creative Newborn Photography in Richmond, TX}

The "G" Family came in from Dallas this past weekend and mom called hoping she could get in to get some baby portraits.  Well, you KNOW how much I can't resist a newborn session so of course I worked her in.  It is my pleasure to introduce to you William.  He was a little bit older than the typical newborn that I photograph, but was very laid back and easy to work with none the less.  I absolutely love the way this session turned out.  
It was so nice meeting you this weekend.  Hopefully, I can catch you again on your next trip to see how much that precious little boy of yours has grown.

One little monkey {One Year Portraits in Richmond, TX}

This morning Liam came over to the studio for his one year pictures. I cannot believe how big he has gotten since the last time I photographed him a few months ago. He is so cute and in about 15 years those big blue eyes are going to drive all the girls crazy.

 Happy Birthday little monkey!
