The most precious baby in Houston is finally at home with her adoring family.  She just takes in the love and kisses and doting in the most peaceful way.  She’s gorgeous and as sweet as can be.  She’s curious and calm and incredibly adored.

We spent a sunny Saturday morning together, and it was truly a pleasure.  When a family’s love for each other is this honest, you can feel it, you can see it, and it’s easy to capture.

Enjoy, congratulations, and blessings to you!  You have an amazing daughter and family (of 6 :-)!

It was no mistake that this little guy was baptized on Valentine’s Day – God’s love bestowed on his child, the parents’ love for their sweet baby son, and no doubt, the grandparents excitement of being together and celebrating a new life.  Such a fantastic ocassion to gather and celebrate!

And isn’t he precious!?  His beautiful blue eyes, his engaged and curious gaze, and his smile each time his mama kissed him.  He was so happy in his mama and daddy’s arms!

I’m often asked if grandparents can join in a photo session, and I aways reply YES!  The more the merrier is my motto.   Family pictures help us remember important moments in our lives.  They are beautiful and fun to look at now, but in the years ahead, they’ll become increasingly more precious.

This little guy will have these photos of this special Valentine’s Day weekend for a lifetime, which is pretty cool.

We took a family winter walk at the Houston Arboretum last weekend. It was the perfect mini-nature getaway we needed. A peaceful place to be together, uninterrupted.

I had a wonderful weekend away visiting dear friends in Georgia. Lots of talking, lots of resting, and lots of great food!

A second bonus to seeing my friends’ pretty faces, is seeing their children. Because of our distance, I miss knowing them on a daily basis; I miss seeing them grow.

There is something special about seeing my dear old friend’s little ones. There’s something in their eyes and in their smiles that is so familiar- so their mom- and there is also their unique spark. Those special qualities that make them their own adorable little selves.

January – especially January in cold cold weather – is the perfect time to pause, reflect, and rest.  Part of that process is going through my highlights (and lowlights) from the year past, and start to looking forward to the next.  I posted some of my favorite images of 2014 last week (see here) and am satisfied and pleased with my first full year living in Houston.  I met so many fabulous people!

I’ve followed I Heart Faces from almost their beginning- 6 years ago- and it’s been a tremendous source of knowledge and encouragement.  Great for all photographers.  This week their theme “Best Face.”

For this one, I dove into my personal images.    My fashionista in the moment.

It was a real pleasure to meet this perfect newborn this weekend. Her sweet lips, clear eyes, and button nose will make you swoon! She’s quiet and incredibly alert, looking and enjoying the action around her (especially her big sister’s infectious smile, doting touches, and awesome dance moves).

She is such a delight to her family, fitting in perfectly, as if she’s always been there. The peace and love and joy in the home was so evident. It was an honor to be there.

I’m so happy for you all- she’s incredible, and your family is too.

It was a 2014 full of love and joy and celebration. Tons of family beauty, emotion and energy, and fun. I had a great time working with so many families in my first full year in Houston. Thank you all for a great year- it was a joy.

Looking forward to celebrating more milestones and family love in the next year.

Happy New Year!

Sometimes just the seemingly simple act of being together is worthy of celebration. With 5 beautiful, growing, and busy children,  this awesome family took a break from the hectic holidays and set some special time apart to relax as a family.  What a treat.

We had a warm Texas winter day on the beach, playing in the wide open space and enjoying the sand under our feet.  They were such a joy to photograph- so natural and confident in themselves.  They have such genuine love for each other and laughed and played with ease.

But, I don’t think I need to describe them much more.  Their joy and love are so evident in their smiles.  Thank you to all-  it was fun!

This beautiful family session was a long time coming! I had the pleasure of watching this mom grow with excitement as she was expecting her baby girl. I remember seeing her printed picture from the hospital on the classroom door, and my daughters and I marveled at the photo of the newborn baby. We marveled at the miracle of birth and life. And now, in 8 months, she has gone from a newborn swaddled in her mama’s arms to an alert baby girl who is smiling, sitting, and playing.

She is just perfect! I loved getting these images- recording her parents infinite love and joy for her- as they played, hugged, and kissed.

It’s always and honor to photograph a family, but this was even better. It was really a pleasure.
