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.

Spradlin Family

Thanks to my regular trips up to East Texas, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the Spradlin girls for several years. It shouldn’t be such a surprise to me to see how much they’ve grown because they are nearly exactly the same age as my two kiddos! But nonetheless, it still surprises me to see the kids I’ve photographed change and grow over the years.  This time was a little different because we actually had the whole family together! Always fun to work with, I had a great time walking around with the four of them and finding spots with pretty light around Synergy Park in Kilgore, Texas. Granted, the girls were freezing, but we made it work and it really was a lot of fun. Scroll down to see more.

Cooper Turns One

I challenge you to find something more adorable than this little man in blue overalls with eyes to match! Cooper’s one year session was so great. He did wonderful with several different outfit changes–including the A&M jersey and football. Seriously, he’s too cute for words! Scroll down to see more.

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. 

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.

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. 

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!

Ram’s Journey

I have done a lot of individual portrait sessions around important life events like graduating and having a new baby; however, this was my first time to photograph anyone in uniform.

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…

Landyn 6 Months

Time flies! I can’t believe it has been six months since we took Landyn’s newborn photos. She has grown and changed so much. For this session we used a nice green field, some yummy watermelon and a strip of burlap. Simple, yet oh so adorable. Big sister Rease was also there to hold Landyn and…

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!
