With 3 children under five, life can be crazy, but it’s the most joyful, beautiful crazy there is!  It is abundantly full, leaving you in tears of happiness and fulfillment and tears of exhaustion.  It’s a time to remember and love and cherish.  I know it is hard to get everyone dressed and ready to go, so I think getting everyone’s picture taken is nothing short of heroic.

I loved hanging with this sweet family.  They played together, laughed together, hugged and squeezed together.  It was sweet to see them love each other-  sister and brothers- and parents and children.   In this family, there is lots of love to go around!

Thank you all for a fun afternoon with you!

I had the real pleasure of meeting this tiny baby at 4 days old.  So young, so beautiful, and so perfect!!  Her parents are overjoyed and already acting like pros.  I was particularly struck by their teamwork and calm.  It was a beautiful scene to watch.

But enough about her sweet parents, isn’t she a dream?  Her cheeks, little hands, nose, and lips, and her sweet curious eyes just opening and learning to see the world. She’s sweet, cuddly, precious, and perfect.

It was an honor to come meet her at home, watch you be loving parents dote over her, and take her first pictures.

Congratulations and Blessings!

This is one of my favorites–  joyful, fun, full, giddy, warm, real, comfortable, at home.  Happy children doing what they love most!  (Not to mention with their adorable puppy.)

Thanks to you all for being awesome.  I loved this session, and I love you guys even more.

You’re the best!

For this Father, Son session, I had a recipe for success. An adorable, happy, and alert 2 month old, a loving father, a gorgeous morning, and of course, a doting mother who helped with all the smiles. I just had to show up and record all the happiness and beauty that was already going on in their home.

They are all so lovely and sweet and wonderful!

I love everything this session represents-  the love parents have for their children, the treasures these images will be in 5, 10, 30, 50 years from now, and that forever, the child will have an image of how much he is cherished.  I just love family photography.

Thank you for inviting me into your home and for inviting me to capture your very palpable love for each other.  It was a sincere pleasure.

Do one year olds get any cuter!? This little guy and his stylish hat are heart melting. He is so sweet, curious, and happy, and I think his parents are pretty awesome as well.

It was a privilege to take their pictures again and help them add to their growing collection of family pictures in their hallway.

Thanks, friends!

We enjoyed a wonderfully long weekend in Dallas – part vacation / part photographing. This family includes both- my big brother, his beautiful wife, and their spunky, fun-loving, gorgeous daughters. I love them all!

I also love this location. They are an urban family, so they needed an urban setting. I love the textures, the colors, and the modern feel it gives.

I love you guys!

3 babes under 4 years is not easy, but this wonderful mom does it with ease, beauty, and so much love. We had the perfect Saturday morning together playing under the Live Oaks.

It was a real honor to take their pictures-  a special gift to this mom for her birthday.  I hope they are framed around their home and enjoyed for many, many years to come!

She is one of the cutest babies I’ve seen … 4 months, still such a baby but so strong, expressive, interested, and happy.  Grabbing her toes, sucking her fist, watching her mommy, and laughing at her daddy.

She’s wearing a very special baptismal gown.  If I’m not mistaken, her beautiful gown has been worn by 4 generations and about 20 babies in all– an incredible history!  I know her baptismal day will be special.

I loved taking her pictures.  I also loved spending an hour with her wonderful parents.  It’s fun to be in the same city with them where our paths will cross much more often.  Thanks guys, it was a fun morning… Enjoy!

I think photographs make such great gifts.  I recently did this session for this beautiful extended family, expanding 4 generations.  It was a Christmas gift for their mom, and it was a wonderful time of not only getting great images of everyone together, but also quality family time spent over Labor Day.

I really enjoy bringing families together, celebrating the life and love we have today, and sharing it for the generations to come.

I hope these are images they cherish for decades to come!  Thank you to you all!

We had such a sweetly serene summer at the pool.

The relaxing heat, the sunlight through the trees, the floating and soaring through the water.

We didn’t want it to end.  So with these, I hoped to stop time a little, to capture the essence of our first summer in Houston.  With just a Kodak underwater camera, I think I did just that.

Hasta luego, verano, hasta pronto.
