Olowo Twins are One!

The second time working with the Olowo family was just as amazing as the first. This family is so so incredibly sweet. They are the “V’s x 5!” – Victor, Vanessa, big sister Victoria and the twins, Valentina and Valerie. It’s hard to believe it has been nearly a year since first photographing the twins. They’ve grown so much! For this session, we met at the Synergy Park in Kilgore. The girls did great. It was sensory overload with all of us trying to get smiles from the twins, but they at least stayed in once place for a bit (which can be hard with two little ones at once). Victoria was all about the photos! I had so much fun with her taking individual images while the twins were getting their outfits changed out. Scroll down to see a sampling from our session.

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. 

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 🙂 

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 🙂

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…

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…
