February 18, 2014 My Girl *Houston Children’s Photography
People often comment, “You must take lots of pictures of your children…” and I used to, but I’ve become complacent lately when photographing my own family. My littlest has few, so it’s become a New Years resolution. More (non-cellphone) pictures of my girls.
Here’s my youngest, roaming the front yard, enjoying the Spring-like weather, keeping her snacks close at all times, and hugging her daddy. One and a half, an adorable age. A precious toddling time I don’t want to forget!
February 11, 2014 Celebrate *Houston Family Photographer
We had a fantastic time on Saturday afternoon! What a privilege for me to be with this family as they celebrate love and life together.
They gathered together in Houston to celebrate 35 years of marriage. What an inspiration to witness their enduring love, 3 kind and wonderful children, their sweet spouses, and of course, 2 rambunctious, curious, and happy toddlers. (The little guy celebrating his 1st birthday as well!)
So beautiful inside and out. I’m pleased they’ll have these images to celebrate their family history, cherish each day together, and remember this time for many years to come.

January 13, 2014 Family Love *Houston Photographer
It was a fabulous weekend in Houston. Sunny, warm, clear, and gorgeous. And it was a great afternoon taking pictures with this sweet family at their home. We wanted to get a great family photo- with their son and 3 pups- as well as other pretty images of them enjoying life together. We got some super fun shots, and I had a blast. Who wouldn’t enjoy taking pictures of this cute little boy (honestly, can you get any cuter?!) and his entourage of pups?
Thanks for a wonderful afternoon, Enjoy!
January 7, 2014 Holiday *Houston Family Photographer
Happy New Year! After two and half weeks of holiday celebration and travel, the girls are back in school, the sun is shining, and I’m reflecting on what a wonderful holiday we had. From Christmas concerts and parties to Christmas Eve services and Santa to a New Years trip to Florida, it was joyful and full.
Here are some of what our festivities looked like. A picture story of my family and our time together. The kind of photography I love best–
the story of a family having fun together, goofing off, loving, and celebrating the fact that today, we are together. And, that’s a pretty awesome day.
December 20, 2013 2013 Favorites *Houston Family Photographer
It’s the time of year when we all become reflective. As a mom, I can’t believe we’re half way through first grade, that our baby is starting to talk, and that we’ve lived in Houston for several months now. If I didn’t stop to reflect on where we have been, I don’t think I’d even remember. The sweet details of our day just flash before me, and without recording it, I would miss so much.
Recording to remember is one of my primary goals as a photographer. I want record a moment not just for the special outfit or precious smile, but also the feelings and thoughts behind the face. And, I want people to see the family love behind every child. We each have a mom, dad, grandmother, grandfather, brothers, sisters, friends, and caregivers that are very much part of our beings. We don’t stand alone on this earth. There’s a connectedness supporting each us, as children and adults.
And so, I’m starting to see a pattern emerge in my work in 2013. My favorites are rarely the stand alone portraits; they tend to be images of parents loving their child. The incredible love that a parent has for their child knocks me over every time. And I think, that as we all grow older, the pictures of us parents with our children will not only be our favorites but also our children’s favorites. There’s nothing better than a dad’s squeeze or a mom’s kiss or a sister’s hug.
December 5, 2013 In Love *Houston Lifestyle Photographer
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.
November 25, 2013 Together *Houston Family Photographer
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!
