Perfectly content {Custom in-home Newborn Photography Pearland, TX}

I am so glad that people are spreading my name to their friends because I love meeting new clients! Meet Ariana. An itty bitty little 5 lb. princess and the youngest of three beautiful girls. She was super sweet and perfectly content through our entire session. Even when she was wide awake she didn't make a single peep. I only had to hold her to get her to close those wide eyes for a while so we could get some sleeping pictures.
I cannot wait until your family session. All of your girls are so good in front of the camera!

Timeless {Infant Photography in Richmond, TX}

Maxton was the first baby I photographed in 2010 and he has grown by leaps and bounds.  He is still as sweet as can be and a happy little guy.  The session was very timeless using a washtub and an adorable romper. He did so well for his portrait session, that we were also able to use him as a model for the cute line of Fall owl clothing from Knotty Baby Wear at the end.

See you guys soon for your family session! :)

A beautiful surprise {Creative Newborn Photography in Katy, TX}

I had the pleasure of meeting the next family at the Mommy Swagger Expo.  Mom was very excited to set up a newborn appointment for mid-September.  I guess the little baby was so excited to have her cameo that she made her appearance early.  Mom went into labor less than 24 hours after our meeting at the Expo!  I love newborns teeny tiny and this little girl is so petite and beautiful just like her mommy.  Meet Anna.  She was so lovely that I used her to model some new headbands from Karley's Kloset
I am so glad you made it out to the Mommy Swagger Expo.  Your family is beautiful and I look forward to our session in the Fall.

While You Sleep I Crochet {Giveaway! Commercial Photography}

It is no secret that I LOVE everything over at While You Sleep, I Crochet.  Most of my crocheted newborn items in my studio have come from their shop.  But, there is much more than newborn items in the shop.  I like the fact that you can choose your own color combos or email with a custom order and in no time flat you have exactly what you wanted.  I have enjoyed working with Krys to design some really cool photography props that are (obviously) very popular with all of my clients.  There is seldom a newborn session that goes by that I don't use at least one of the things I got from While You Sleep, I Crochet.  Here are a few of my favorite things...
Hat with detachable flower clip and Cocoon
Twin Pod ( I also have a single baby pod!)
Bear Hat which I use with or without a bow to make it more boyish or girlish.
Stork Pouch (I have a light and a dark one)
 Hooded Cocoon (I have two of these, also)

Nick's Senior Session {High School Senior Portraits in Houston, TX}

After being rained out on our first attempt, we were lucky to only catch a few sprinkles the evening of our second try. Meet Nick. He attends St. John's this year and is looking into a couple of different ivy league schools or UT Austin for next year. Of course I am pulling for UT since it was my alma mater. :) We had a great time chatting about what life on campus will be like. Once I figured out how to make Nick laugh, it was tough to get a serious picture. lol
Good luck getting into whichever school you decide on!

Pros at the unposes poses {Children's Custom Photography in Richmond, TX}

The "H" family won the silent auction session that I donated for the Layla Grace Legacy Relay for Life team. I had a blast working with their boys! Meet Garrett and Landon. They were seriously great and up for anything. They posed their "unposed" looks perfectly. If only every session could be so easy. :)
I absolutely cannot wait for your family session in a few months!

Chase's Model Session {Custom Children's Photography in Richmond, TX}

Chase is the next model up for The Perfect Stitch. He LOVES to fish with his dad so the fish birthday shirt was {for lack of a better word)perfect. After we finished his product session, we moved on to their family session. This location turned out to be a great spot. We found a stick and Chase practiced his fishing skills. Gotta love a boy with imagination!
Thank you "P" family.  I had a great time "fishing" with you.  :)

Charlee and Brett's Model Session {Custom Children's Photography in Richmond, TX}

I am loving all of the outfits being modeled for The Perfect Stitch! Next up is Charlee and Brett. Charlee LOVES being in front of the camera. Brett, not so much. lol After they modeled their Social Butterfly and lollipop shirts, they got fancy and we had some fun with a session add on. I am in love with the outfits mom chose for their session. So in love that I actually bartered with mom to get the pettiromper for the studio! :D

It was great to finally meet you!

Friends {Child Photography in Richmond, TX}

The first thing I have to say is when you get 5 one year olds together it can get loud.  lol  But this session was so much fun even through the chaos.  I love the reason for it.  The session was the result of an office baby boom.  All the moms are nurses in the same hospital, all were pregnant together, and all delivered within weeks of one another.  We met to celebrate the little one's first birthday together.  Hopefully, they will all grow up to be great friends just like their moms.
See you all again next year for the two year session.  ;)

I had a great time with you guys at my new favorite location.  ;)  Hope to see you again soon.

Brooke's Model Session {Custom Children's Photography in Richmond, TX}

Brooke is the next model up in The Perfect Stitch Model Search. I haven't seen her since I did her newborn pics and she has gotten so big! I loved her initial shirt paired with the bright tutu. So cute!
 It was great seeing you two again!
