It was a sincere pleasure to meet this new family of 3 on Monday morning.

Lovely, kind parents (with a great sense of style) welcoming their newborn daughter into their family.  Newborns always amaze me- the miracle of life, the overwhelming love and joy of a family, and the wonderful sense of hope the child represents.

This baby girl is perfect.  She’s captivating, beautiful, and sweet, and best of all, she is really well loved.

Welcome to the world, sweet sweet baby girl.  Welcome to a loving family, an adoring mother, a proud father, and a fun-loving sister.  You are totally precious, cute as can be, and above all, you are completely 100% loved and cherished.

And I know in time, that love will even grow.

I love that with this family, there’s doesn’t have to be a big occasion for pictures.  Just life.  Growing another year… maturing, learning, accomplishing, and living.  Celebrating these sweet faces and the great joy they bring to the world.

It was fun to meet up with them early last week.  We got up early to beat the heat, and I think it paid off.  We got some wonderful portraits of some super sweet children.  Here are some of my favorites.

Enjoy!

I love taking family pictures.  They say something to the effect, “in this place and time, our family looked like this.”  Family pictures are nice to have around in the present, but in the future they are priceless.  (No wonder “Throw Back Thursdays” are so popular on Facebook and Instagram.)  Looking at pictures of our families in years past brings brings us emotions of happiness, joy, wonder, nostalgia, and maybe even sadness.  They help us remember.  They help us feel.

BUT, my most favorite images, are the ones we get behind the scenes.  The moments before the family picture.  The tickles during the family picture.  The unwinding, silly fun that happens after the family picture.  I call them the “in between moments,” when the smiles are brightest and the personality shines most.

I LOVE the “in between moments” of this family.  Such happiness and beauty!

9 days old and perfectly adored.  I’m admittedly biased as these are some good friends, but I think this family is pretty special.  I’m so excited for this little boy…  he’s got some awesome parents and a great big brother.

He’s sweet, he’s loved, and he’s perfect.

I’m honored to know him, and I can’t wait to watch him grow.

Running, giggling, skipping, splashing, and playing all weekend long.  These children and their awesome parents know how to have a great time, to escape work in the big city and relax on the beach.

It was so fun for me to meet up with them in Galveston and to capture their growing families and enduring friendships.  In just a short time playing in the waves, I think we got some spunky, fun-loving, and action packed images…  just what we wanted.

Saturday afternoon at William’s Tower was bustling!  Quincenera parties, tourists, boys playing football, and these adorable 1 and 2 year old siblings.  We were all moving, all the time.  30 minutes of running and playing and experiencing the waterfall, which is quite the rush.  And 30 minutes of smiling and just being so stinkin’ adorable.

It was a blast.  Plus, I think we got some great pictures along the way.

Pictures of what life is like when you’re 1 and 2 years old, and everything is so exciting and new.

While I don’t usually photograph weddings, I can be persuaded when the right couple comes along.  A happy couple, together for so many years  and ready to be married.  They had a perfectly relaxed and intimate wedding with their closest family and friends in Kingwood with the bride’s father performing the ceremony.  It was so special.  And their reception was at her sister’s home, no-fuss and fun.  (If you look close enough, Batman makes an appearance on the cake.)

But even with the personalized details, the picturesque church, the warm sun and breeze, the gorgeous bride stole the show.  She was simply stunning.  Gorgeous and giddy.  Happy and complete.

I’m so happy for this great couple.  Congratulations again, and many many blessings on your marriage in the years to come!

This girl is all mine.  Or, “MY!!!” as she would say.  She’s mine, she’s her daddy’s, she’s her sisters,’ and she’s now 2.

Happy Birthday, my baby girl!  

We love you so much.

At 18 years old, I met this couple.  Of course, they weren’t a couple just yet.  From across our freshmen dorm hall, I watched their relationship begin.  From college dates and parties to a long distance relationship and much much schooling (meet two brilliant people) to a gorgeous wedding and blossoming careers, they’ve had a beautiful relationship.

But nothing beats this moment in time.  Mommy and Daddy for the first time, and their love is overflowing.  Their son is perfect in every way- handsome and sweet and cuddly.  Perfect upon arrival.

I’m thrilled to be sharing the same city with them again, to be friends in the same space again, and to grow our families together in Houston.  At 18, I could never have seen this day coming.  But I often think our reality is better than our dreams.

Now, without further ado, meet their little man.  Their blue-eyed wonder.
