On her first birthday, her parents took the day off from work to spend the day together, celebrate their precious daughter, and enjoy life. It was a privilege to meet up with them at one of their favorite parks to take pictures of this big day.

The big numero UNO! She is one years old and as happy as can be!! She’s full of joy, smiles, and laughter. We had the most cheerful time at the park!

Happy Birthday, little one! You are one special girl!

We had such a good time getting this whole family together! When the idea of including grandparents in a session comes up, I say, “the more the merrier!”

I love multigenerational photo sessions because they bring a deeper dimension and sentiment. They are images that will be passed on to future generations and enjoyed for a long time. Plus, these grandparents know how to make the little guys smile. Chasing, playing, singing, reading- they did it all. They help make the images come to life.

Thank you all for a fun session! It was a pleasure!

I love this family sessions from Saturday! With three beautiful children, fun-loving parents, and a quiet Saturday morning setting, we were set-up for wonderful pictures. I love their personalities shining through in these images. Happy, fun, and super cute!

For me, this session was especially fun. I started photographing this family when we both lived in DC. Now, we’ve both settled in Houston, and I still get to see them grow. Thanks for another wonderful session together!

I’ve had my hands full this week with the newest member of our family- Rocky the Wonder Dog! We think he is adorable! Our little one isn’t so sure about having a new “baby” in the house, but she’s coming around to the idea.

More family blog posts will be coming soon (the holiday family photo rush is starting!), and I’ll enjoy having my new buddy sleeping at my feet while I edit away.

Meet the most beautiful, peaceful baby girl. She’s perfect in every way- aware of the world, soaking in her families love, and still super dreamy. She moves in and out of sleep and happiness so easily and loves to be loved on.

Next, meet her fantastic big sister- a bird loving, pig tail wearing, gorgeous little girl. Becoming a Big Sister is not an easy job, and she is handling it like a champ.

And, her parents are doing a really great job, too. Their love, patience, and wisdom for how to love their girls was so evident. It was really a pleasure to witness.

Your family is gorgeous, many congratulations!

What a delight it was to meet this beautiful little girl last weekend. She is perfect in every way- her tiny nose, her sweet lips, all 20 fingers and toes- a gorgeous, miracle of life! She is strong, active, and already very curious about the world.

I loved meeting her, and I really loved watching her mom and dad and grandmother admire her every move. They dote and love and are completely consumed by her beauty. What a blessing she is to many!

Many congratulations to this new, beautiful family of 3!

I’m often asked what type of photography I do, and I answer that I specialize in family photography, especially families with little ones.  But honestly, most families stop taking pictures after the first few years because life gets busy and time moves too quickly.  (Not a real specialty, just the market.  :-)  Then, when teens start approaching their senior year (HUGE milestone), families start coming back for pictures.

I loved meeting up with this family to not only get this awesome senior’s pictures, but also grab shots of the entire family.  My motto is “the more, the merrier!”  Why not throw in mom, dad, and sister?  Let’s get everyone fresh, beautiful portraits!

Plus, these two teens are really awesome.  They’re low key and fun to be around.  Their self-confident and comfortable, and they are really great friends.  It was a refreshing morning hanging out with them, learning about high school traditions, and talking about what the future might bring.

Thank you to you all- it was a pleasure!

September 25, 2015 Family Holiday Time

Fall is here, and we are taking lots of family photos . . . Especially families with preschoolers! Here’s a fun sampling of the some of Houston’s finest youngsters. They are fun, sweet, full of life, giggly, and joyful.

And, their parents are pretty awesome too.

I met this beautiful little girl last week, and had the pleasure of spending some time with her lovely parents. What perfect little baby!  She’s already alert and absorbing the world around her.  With her big brown eyes, cute little lips, and dainty fingers and toes, you just want to hold her tight.

Her parents are impressively calm and collected as they bond with her.  Their abundant love pours from them as they hug, kiss, and cuddle.  It was a real privilege to help them capture these images of their sweet little one, images they will cherish for many years to come.

Your family is precious, many congratulations and blessings!

What a pleasure to meet this gorgeous family. Mom and Dad are so kind, big brother is handsome, doting, and super fun, and baby sister is PRECIOUS. She is perfection! Perfect with the cutest little features and sweetest demeanor. All I heard from her were sweet coos and sighs with tender smiles and cuddles.

I especially loved seeing how much everyone adores her. How precious are these pictures of big brother taking care of little sister? No doubt there will be many, many years of him looking out for her.

Love abounds in this home, and it was a pleasure to be there. Many congratulations to you all!
