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.

What a fun, loving, and easy-going brother and sister pair!  (Not to mention super polite, as well.)   It was a delight to meet them this weekend, see them play, and catch some natural shots of them and their lovely parents.

I love letting the children lead the way, express themselves, and shine.

My favorite kind of session.

I took some portraits of this lovely lady last week, and I couldn’t help but share. She is so beautiful. While family lifestyle is my number 1, I often have various other jobs. Women’s portraiture is one area that I’ve grown to love more and more. I really think everyone should have a nice picture of themselves, especially women.

This young lady has the world in front of her… job prospects, career options, so much potential. It was a pleasure to take her picture at this gorgeous time in her life.

We had a fabulous vacation. Fun family time, cooler temperatures, wild exploration, and much needed rest and relaxation.

Yesterday, the girls and I pulled out the previous year’s vacation book. Look how we’ve all grown! Then we went further back, and leafed through all of our photo books. The perfect summer activity. And then I sat to make this year’s book. The whole family will receive one and hopefully enjoy it like a yearbook. An annual marking of our lives together. Here are some of my favorite images.

I really don’t want summer to end.

They are a new family of four, and they make it look easy.  The baby is so peaceful, calm, and sleepy.  Big brother is happy, joyful, and fun.  Mom is cool as a cucumber, well-pleased of her boys, and stunningly gorgeous.  Dad is going-with-the-flow, content, and proud.

There is so much beauty in their home. It was such a pleasure to meet them there.

Congratulations and blessing to you all!  Enjoy your 2 precious sons.

She’s finally here.  9 months seems so long when you’re waiting to meet your precious daughter, your sweet little sister.  She’s here, and she’s totally perfect.  A sweet, dainty girl with big eyes who loves to take in the world around her.

It’s always an honor to meet a baby in her first week of life, but this was extra special.  These are my friends from childhood, and we’ve ended up reconnecting in a new city… moving to the same neighborhood in the same summer.  It’s a blessing to have them so close!  And, it’s extra special to know their dear children.

Congratulations again, friends.  She’s so precious!

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.
