Hajovsky Family

I had a great time, as always, with the Hajovsky family this fall. This is my third year to photograph them and I can’t believe how much the boys have grown. They are getting so big! The best part of working with many of the same families year over year is getting to see this first hand. We had so much fun running around, climbing trees, running up rock piles and throwing leaves into the air. Scroll down to see some of our favorites!

Calvert Family

For my first time photographing the Calvert family, they came out to our property for a beautiful sunrise session. The boys did so great! We had fun playing on the road, heading out to the tank and then ending the morning with them playing on our little swing set.  I’m thankful that the sun decided to peak out behind some of the early morning rainclouds for our session. It was muggy for sure, but fall in, Texas is always so unpredictable that you never really know what the next few days or weeks will bring. As I sit here drafting this post, we have had nearly a 40 degree shift in the temperature in one day!! Thus, I feel we were truly blessed with great light and little wind for this one. Scroll down to see a few of our favorites.

Benavides Family

This was a fun one! I met the Benavides family at Landa Park one sunny evening to take their first family pictures in more than eight years. We had great time walking around to find pockets of light where the sun started to set behind the trees. Although it’s crowded most of the time, there are many spots in Landa Park that you can find away from groups of people. For it being a mostly overcast day, we had great luck finding the light. This was my first time working with the Benavides crew and they were so sweet and relaxed during the whole session. I found myself telling them again and again that they were making my job way too easy! Scroll down to see a sampling from our session.

Classen Family

Sometimes you have a family that you just connect with instantly. I knew right away after meeting the extended Classen family at their families’ ranch in New Braunfels that their group would be a blast to work with. Big group family sessions are often hectic because when you get that many people together (especially with young kids), it’s hard to maintain focus and still get natural looking smiles. This was not the case with the Classens! I truly had a great time working with the whole family. We walked around on their beautiful property and were even blessed with a few moments of sun after a mostly overcast and rainy day. Scroll down to see a sampling of the images we captured.

2017 Year at a Glance

I can’t begin to express the gratitude I feel for having the ability to photograph amazing families, couples and individuals near my hometown. This was a busy year! From lifestyle newborn sessions to high school and college seniors, maternity sessions, anniversaries, weddings and beyond, I was able to work with hundreds of individuals across all ages. 

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 🙂

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 🙂

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…

The Schmidt Kids!

I had some fun taking pictures of my nieces and nephew before a pool party we had this weekend to celebrate Jathan’s (aka Bubby) birthday. They are growing up so fast. I can’t believe how grown up each of them look in these pictures! I’m so thankful that I’m here to see it. Five years…

Kubena Family

This family session was given as a gift last Christmas (yes, I offer gift certificates!) and we were able to get everyone together this spring for pictures. It’s so important to continue to take family pictures even after the kids have grown and start leaving the house. It had been a while since the Kubena family had taken any family shots together so I was honored to be able to do that for them. This was a super relaxed session and I’m loving the final results. Such a sweet family!
