Stanush Family

I had the pleasure of working with Kelsey a few years back to capture images to celebrate her graduation from college. This year, she asked if I could work with the whole family while they were together for the holidays. We met at one of my favorite spots after Thanksgiving for a quick walk around the park and we even managed to sneak a few smirks out of Mr. Stanush! So much fun. Scroll down to see more šŸ™‚Ā 

Ben + Caitlin

I’m not quite sure I can pick just one favorite out of these engagement photos for Ben and Caitlin! It started as one of those days where we just didn’t know what the weather would do. It was gloomy and grey all afternoon–and then, right before sunset, this beautiful glowing light magically appeared for us. We followed the light and sought out some great locations with depth and texture across fields and creeks on the land belonging to Ben’s family. This is just a sampling of what we captured, but they were all great. Scroll down to see more!

Ray + Randi

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hardin. Let me just say, this was a fun wedding to photograph! Not only was the venue great, but we had beautiful light and everyone was a blast to work with. There is a lot to scroll through here, but I’d make it to the bottom of the post if you can. When the groomsman plan a surprise consisting of a coordinated dance to Despacito in honor of the bride, you just have to take a ton of pictures–and the expressions on Randi’s face are priceless!Ā 

McGowin Family

Super sweet, down-to-earth and fun to work with. The McGowins are all of these things and more! Truly, they make my job easy and I enjoy my time with them each photo session we have together. Take a look by scrolling down to see some of our recent images captured near Market Square in downtown, San Antonio. I’m loving the saturated colors and texture we were able to find.

Jonas Family

Everything about the Jonas’ family session worked so perfectly! With toddler age kids, you just never know if we’ll be able to keep their attention and get genuine laughter and smiles. We were blessed with an abundance of them this time thanks to the hard work of Hayden’s grandma. She was amazing at hiding behind me and jumping out just at the right time. Those of you with kids, know we’ll do what it takes to get those natural expressions of true joy. Scroll down to see a sampling of what we captured. Definitely one of my favorites from this fall!

Juliann & Kenny’s Surprise

This was a lot of fun. Juliann contacted me a while back to schedule a family photo session as a present to her mom. As we got closer to the date, she also found out that she was expecting! As a way to capture some of the excitement and love this family shares, we devised a plan for Kenny and Juliann to announce the pregnancy towards the end of the evening.Ā 

Randi’s Bridal

Bridal sessions are one of my favorites because they give every bride the opportunity to dress up and take beautiful portraits without the stress of the big day. Randi drove down with her daughter, mom and maid of honor to the Seguin area for her bridal session. We had a relaxing afternoon walking around and searching for beautiful light.

Parker Newborn

This lifestyle newborn session was perfect! I’m so grateful that I have wonderful families who welcome me into their homes to document such special milestones. Time is such a precious thing and it passes so quickly. Lifestyle sessions are a great way to look back and see how the nursery was decorated or to remember a special memory at your home. Scroll down below to see a sampling from my time with baby Parker and family. Big brother Easton did amazing as well. His little smile just melts my heart šŸ™‚

Lindsey Family

Iā€™m loving these shots of the Lindsey family. As with most families living with an active toddler, we were reminded that they rule to show when it comes to family photo sessions. Miss Maisyn kept us on our toes this time, but candy and simple bribes won out in the end! We even captured a few unposed moments with laughter and hugs. And when all else fails, we go to the swings! Scroll down to see a sampling from their session this fall šŸ™‚

Jackson 6 Months

My goodness…I can’t handle how cute Jackson was for his six month photo session last weekend. We met at the always beautiful San Antonio Botanical Garden and I really think this age range is becoming one of my favorites! At this age, babies can usually hold themselves up or even sit. They are also much more attentive and smiley–creating endless possibilities to capture their developing personalities. Jackson was a rockstar! Not only were his little outfits completely adorable, but he also did great and connecting with me and giving direct eye contact to the camera. Scroll down to see a sampling from our session.

Leonard Maternity

I love the images we got from this session! Furthermore, I love the evolution of smiles from the handsome Mr. Luke during our time together. From the uncertain expression on Luke’s face on the first image to the very last one in this set, this is a great example of how it is possible to take family pictures, maternity photos and portraits of an active almost 2-year old in a short time frame. Nearing sunset, I met the Leonard family in La Vernia to document the growing family. It was a group effort, but we were able to let Luke run and explore while I snuck in a few maternity photos of Jacquelyn. He wouldn’t sit for us for the family photos, but through the creative use of the ‘dinosaur trees’ and playing in the dirt, we were rewarded with some precious and genuine smiles.

Dugosh / Geiger family

This was my second session with this sweet family. We met in Gruene on a sunny Saturday morning to capture a few family images and some of the adorable Mr. Maker. He was much more mobile this time around so we just let him roam and play. Not only were we lucky to coax a handful of genuine smiles from him, but we also found some silly faces along the way. This age range is such a joy to photograph!
