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!
This newborn session was great! I had the opportunity to meet both of Jackson’s grandmas and we were able to get some beautiful images with mom, dad and big sister. Jackson did wonderful. We had him in so many different shots and poses with the family and were still able to capture some individually of him sleeping. Those of you who have been part of a newborn session know that is no small feat!
Last December while scrolling through one of Zulily’s sales, I had the idea to do something with six different colored rain boots using my kids, nieces and nephews on my side of the family. The primary benefit of living out in the country is that we have a lot of wide open space to run around —and, it’s especially beautiful in the spring when the wildflowers come up and the grass reemerges bright green. So for this session, I just wanted to get the kiddos out in the flowers and utilize the light to our advantage.
I love when I’m invited into a home to capture newborn photos with a more lifestyle flair to them. For Penny’s session, it was super relaxed and I even had a great helper with her big brother, Hollstin. We had some amazing bright and airy light and Penny was simply precious. She fought her sleep a bit but that gave us the opportunity to see her pretty blue eyes.
This was the third time I’ve been able to photograph these sweet sisters. Due to my travel schedule, I had a limited time window where we could take pictures and as mother nature would have it, it was VERY chilly the morning we met for pictures. We had to take a break mid session to warm up their red little noses in the car but the girls did amazing and we got some precious shots of them together and individually.
How sweet is this little girl! Due to some cooler temperatures outside, we had a quick indoor photo session to commemorate Baylor’s six month birthday. I’ve had the pleasure of working with this family many times, including her newborn session, so it was great to see everyone again. It was hard to coax a few smiles out of her at first, but she did amazing when it came to looking directly at the camera. I just can’t get enough of those little cheeks!
I was able to photograph the precious 10 day old Christopher James (CJ) in route to a work trip this January. He was very sleepy at the start but quickly decided to wake up when we rudely stripped him down for pictures. After we had him settled in some comfy blankets, we even got some…
Wow! As a busy mom and wife it’s hard to imagine how it was possible to have had so many great sessions this past year. As many of you know, photography isn’t my full time gig, but it is my love, passion and all consuming hobby. In 2016, I was very fortunate to have a broad spectrum of clients and occasions. From newborns, maternity, extended families, high school seniors, engagements/weddings, prom and more, I met so many awesome people and started getting more repeat clients coming back to me for the second and third year in a row. I feel really blessed to be able to have this outlet for my creativity and that so many have trusted me to capture these special moments.
Who says that an overcast winter day (albiet warm and muggy) cannot make a great backdrop for family photos?! I met the Wade family out at their property a few days before Christmas to take family pictures that included some amazing shots with the kids and their grandparents. I love all family sessions, but they are even better when the family has a lot of fun while taking the photos.
Here is a sampling from the Frederick Family session from this fall. We didn’t post them earlier because it was a surprise Christmas present. So now that the images have been delivered, here they are!
Born right before Thanksgiving, miss Landyn was absolutely perfect during her newborn session. We were able to get a few shots with a fall theme, with big sister Rease, some Christmas images and even some sweet pictures with her laying on a blanket made by her grandmother. I love the ones with the hats and headbands, but I’m also in love with the ones showcasing her beautiful hair 🙂
I met the Doege family at Max Starcke Park in Seguin, TX for a morning session. The light was creamy and beautiful tucked back in the trees.
