My sister is getting married, my sister is getting married! And I couldn’t be more excited for her and her fabulous fiance. Love them both! And, I love them as a couple. So, while in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday, we hit up Klyde Warren Park  in the Arts District in Dallas to get some fun-loving pictures of them together.

I love the movement and joy and love these images show.  They’re full of holiday cheer.   And how pretty!  Aren’t they a beautiful couple!?

Congratulations on your engagement, you two, I’m so happy for you both.

What a pleasure it was to be with this family on Sunday afternoon.  Meet my kind friend from high school, her preciously animated baby boy, and her light-hearted husband.  (How adorable is her little baby?!)  It’s been years since I’ve seen my friend, and it was special to see her again, meet her family, and see her as a new mom.

We dodged this terrible weather that hit Houston- cold and rainy for days- to get some family pictures of them at their warm home.  After some great pictures on their stoop, with their pup, and by their new oak tree, it started to rain, so we returned indoors to warm up.  I love meeting people in their homes, including their pets, and I especially love capturing little babies giggling with their parents.

I love how these images are so real, authentic, so them.  Enjoy!

Fun, fun, fun!  That’s the only way to describe this wonderful family.  I loved the approach we took to this past Saturday afternoon.  Let the children play, enjoy an hour of quality family time, and take natural pictures along the way.  So, that’s what we did, and I think it worked.

We got some amazingly beautiful pictures along the way.

This is why love my job.  High energy fun AND taking pictures to help families celebrate their love for each other.  Thanks for a perfect Saturday afternoon.

Enjoy! *Note: No one was injured during this shoot.  :-)

Meet this precious newborn baby girl-  a princess who is already loved and adored by her family.  Meet this sweet new family of 4.  A mom and dad celebrating their beautiful new baby and an older brother who is already doting on his little sister (as well as continuing to run around and play like an energetic 3 year old!).

I loved spending the morning with them all, to help them photograph these very special days, to learn more about them and their family, and to enjoy some amazing tea and conversation with them afterwards.  Your baby girl is pure perfection.  Enjoy every cuddle and coo she gives!

Taking family pictures in the home is one of my most favorite things to do.  It’s intimate, it’s honest, it’s real, and I think it’ll withstand the test of time.  Remember when you were 6 and just got your new loft bed?  Do you remember that dolly that you loved so much?  Do you remember that cool tree in the front yard?  Do you remember how many hours we spent playing, jumping, and swimming in our backyard?  Those were amazing times.  These are amazing times.

This is who and where they are today.  An incredibly loving and kind family who love being and playing together.  A sweet and very smart little girl who is curious and playful and interested.  A united couple who have traveled the world but are so happy to be at home, together.

It was an honor to come into their home and document this time in their lives.  Enjoy.  Your family is beautiful!

I love this family’s yearly tradition.  A picture every year to document who they are as a family- beautiful, growing, and changing.  And this year is no different, except maybe it’s even better.  This year they have their new baby girl who is as sweet as can be.

She’s perfect in every way- her eyes, nose, and toes- and she loves to look around and watch.  She’s content and joyful and giggles when she’s with her mom and dad.  Pure  joy.

It was my pleasure to take these pictures for them this year.  I loved meeting them, oohing over their sweetheart, and documenting the love they have for her this year.

Enjoy!

What a beautiful family on a stunning day in one of Houston’s most popular parks!  Not to mention these awesome kids.  First of all, I LOVE this age.  They are just kids who are curious and energetic and excited about everything.  They are so radiant, and I wanted to capture their spirits in these photos.  And I think you can see it.  I think you can feel every bit of their 4 and 7 year old selves here.

It was a blast for me.  Thanks to you all for a fun afternoon in the park.

Your family is precious.  Enjoy!

When the camera is in my hand, I am always looking for the essence of a situation or the person.  Especially with children, I want to capture their personality shining.  And so I love this image, a four year old’s energy and joy and spunk that never ends.

Having just moved from DC to Houston, my life is in transition.  And with the changes, I’m looking to refine my artist’s eye and skill.  I’m entering this image into a competition that will offer critique and growth from a wonderful community of photographers.  See and learn more about Chic Critique here.

Our Halloween week is off to a great start.  Who doesn’t LOVE cute babies in costumes?  Fall fairs, pumpkin desserts, candy, and costumes.  We’re loving it all!
