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 🙂

Lindsey Family

I’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 🙂

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!

Heubaum Family

How sweet is this family! Here is a sampling from a fall mini session with the Heubaums. The kids did wonderful and I can’t believe how smiley Mr. Owen was. They definitely made it way too easy for me. I love what I do 🙂

Olowo Twins

I had the pleasure of photographing the Olowo family to celebrate the twins, Valeri and Valentina, reaching three months. We met at Synergy Park in Kilgore, Texas and had some amazing light to capture the sparkle the their beautiful little eyes. It was so hard to pick the best images out of this gallery! As you can imagine, with three little girls, we had a lot of movement and action shots. But, we came away with some precious smiles and memories to last a lifetime. Big sister, Victoria, did great as well! Scroll down to see a sampling from our session.

Latham Family

Warning: these photos are dripping with cuteness and sunshine! It was pretty hard to pick out just a few favorites from the Latham’s family session.  We had such a great time walking around being silly while the kids played — and it resulted in some precious little moments.  Take a look by scrolling down to see a sample of what we captured. 

Wright Kids

On a sunny August evening, I met the Wright family to capture a few images of the kids together and some of Miss Presley to commemorate her approaching first birthday. As always, the kids did wonderful. It was nice to see the big brothers loving on baby sister and interacting with one another.  And, how adorable…

Madysen and Sydney Turn 1!

What’s more adorable than a cake smash session? Well, how about a cake smash times two! I’m so glad I got to work with Miss Sydney and Madysen again to celebrate their first birthday. The bright colors of their tutus were a great contrast to the glowing light and green grass. It was fun to see them interact with each other, taste the cakes and get REALLY messy. We captured some cheeseball moments, sweet smiles and their developing personalities. One thing I always forget to tell parents is to bring a backup outfit for them just in case. Sometimes the parents can get more messy in the aftermath than the kids themselves!

The Voss Family is Growing!

This is the third year I was able to photography the Voss family. First, it was for Easton’s cake smash and now it was to celebrate him turning three and his new baby brother that will be making his arrival in October. I know some people say age three is hard, but I love to photograph it! You get to capture their spirit and pure joy—usually including a lot of movement and smiles. Right before the sun started going down, we also had a quick wardrobe change so we could also get a few individual shots of Laura and some more of the family. I’m so glad we did these second because she was glowing!

Hollstin is 3!

In this sunny ‘All About Me’ session to celebrate Hollstin’s third birthday, we sweated our booties off but we captured some amazing shots that highlighted his interests and personality. Who needs props when you can bring out their favorite toys?! It makes the session so much more personal and gives you a great way to look back and remember their favorite things as they get older. We had a great time just letting him play — and really, who doesn’t love Tonka trucks and dinosaurs!
