Happy One Year to this little guy and his parents!!  What a huge milestone to celebrate.  About a year ago, I caught up with this family as they welcomed home their little guy.  You can see his precious newborn post here-  Newborn Preciousness

One year later, a lot has changed.  He’s crawling, cruising, smiling, playing, eating, and talking.  He’s moved homes, changed schools, and grown into a little boy.

But the core of his life is the exact same.  The over-the-moon, heart swelling love his parents had for him as a newborn is the same, if not bigger.  He is perfection, and he is surrounded by a fantastic mom and dad.  I don’t think the number of his years will ever changed that.

I LOVE kids. I love their unbridled emotion. They don’t censor like we do. When they are happy, they are giddy and silly and free. When they are sad, they melt and scream and cry. They are honest and spontaneous and always fun.

These 2 exemplify all the wonders of childhood. Aren’t they adorable? We had a quick session last week to catch exactly that and the tremendous love of their family.

It’s always a pleasure to see this family. They are so dear and wonderful and fun.

The most precious baby in Houston is finally at home with her adoring family.  She just takes in the love and kisses and doting in the most peaceful way.  She’s gorgeous and as sweet as can be.  She’s curious and calm and incredibly adored.

We spent a sunny Saturday morning together, and it was truly a pleasure.  When a family’s love for each other is this honest, you can feel it, you can see it, and it’s easy to capture.

Enjoy, congratulations, and blessings to you!  You have an amazing daughter and family (of 6 :-)!

It was no mistake that this little guy was baptized on Valentine’s Day – God’s love bestowed on his child, the parents’ love for their sweet baby son, and no doubt, the grandparents excitement of being together and celebrating a new life.  Such a fantastic ocassion to gather and celebrate!

And isn’t he precious!?  His beautiful blue eyes, his engaged and curious gaze, and his smile each time his mama kissed him.  He was so happy in his mama and daddy’s arms!

I’m often asked if grandparents can join in a photo session, and I aways reply YES!  The more the merrier is my motto.   Family pictures help us remember important moments in our lives.  They are beautiful and fun to look at now, but in the years ahead, they’ll become increasingly more precious.

This little guy will have these photos of this special Valentine’s Day weekend for a lifetime, which is pretty cool.

We took a family winter walk at the Houston Arboretum last weekend. It was the perfect mini-nature getaway we needed. A peaceful place to be together, uninterrupted.

I had a wonderful weekend away visiting dear friends in Georgia. Lots of talking, lots of resting, and lots of great food!

A second bonus to seeing my friends’ pretty faces, is seeing their children. Because of our distance, I miss knowing them on a daily basis; I miss seeing them grow.

There is something special about seeing my dear old friend’s little ones. There’s something in their eyes and in their smiles that is so familiar- so their mom- and there is also their unique spark. Those special qualities that make them their own adorable little selves.

January – especially January in cold cold weather – is the perfect time to pause, reflect, and rest.  Part of that process is going through my highlights (and lowlights) from the year past, and start to looking forward to the next.  I posted some of my favorite images of 2014 last week (see here) and am satisfied and pleased with my first full year living in Houston.  I met so many fabulous people!

I’ve followed I Heart Faces from almost their beginning- 6 years ago- and it’s been a tremendous source of knowledge and encouragement.  Great for all photographers.  This week their theme “Best Face.”

For this one, I dove into my personal images.    My fashionista in the moment.

It was a real pleasure to meet this perfect newborn this weekend. Her sweet lips, clear eyes, and button nose will make you swoon! She’s quiet and incredibly alert, looking and enjoying the action around her (especially her big sister’s infectious smile, doting touches, and awesome dance moves).

She is such a delight to her family, fitting in perfectly, as if she’s always been there. The peace and love and joy in the home was so evident. It was an honor to be there.

I’m so happy for you all- she’s incredible, and your family is too.
