Have I mentioned how much I love newborn shoots? My morning spent with the V Family was no exception. What fun to hang out with this little guy on his 10th day of life. And I have to say… this family gets extra bonus points for the snuggly bear hat – precious! Thanks, V Family for welcoming me into your home during this special time!
These. Found today on a short side-of-the highway walk outside of Buc-ee’s. I was able to identify most but not all. Please let me know in the comments if you are able to identify the last one!

It’s funny what happens when you live somewhere your whole life – that place makes up the air you breathe. It seems totally normal, uninteresting, mundane. But when you leave, all of a sudden home becomes fascinating, interesting, worth talking about. During my years in St Louis, I tried to explain the beauty, nay the glory of my beloved Texas. I had a few enthusiastic listeners but they were outnumbered by the eye rollers (“you Texans“). But now that I am back in my home state, I am soaking in those things that seemed so mundane before. Here are just a few of the things that I have loved about Texas over the last couple of weeks…
The storms and views in the Hill Country:
And rodeo… miscellaneous:
The beautiful view of the Houston skyline from Buffalo Bayou:
The Kite Festival at Hermann Park:
Stay tuned. My love affair with my home state has only just begun…
Ya’ll what could possibly be better than a morning spent with three generations in the bluebonnets? I had such fun hanging out with the extended T Family. One of the T ladies was a former roommate of mine and I have been waiting patiently to meet her beautiful daughter. These kiddos did not disappoint – they smiled and played and generally made those gorgeous flowers look even better :-) Thanks also, T Family, for choosing this beautiful location! I cannot wait to return to this spot for more spring portraits.
Don’t forget – Sarah Sue Photography offers head shots! I work hard to give you a look that is more than a simple studio portrait. Go to my contact page to schedule your sitting for the spring!
Last weekend, I had the special treat of photographing the new baby of a friend that I have known and loved for the last 25 years. WHAT?! Yes, you read that correctly – a quarter of a century. What a privilege to see her beginning this new adventure of motherhood. And what fun to see this little boy at three weeks old, already looking like a handsome combo of his parents! I’m so excited to see more and more of his little personality as he gets older.

The weather in Houston this past weekend was… nasty. So my photoshoot with little Andy and Sasha was, by necessity, a bit lower key than we had anticipated. We played and posed in the house, venturing out bravely for a couple of family shots. I have to say though, it was a lot of fun to be cooped up with these kiddos. We did ballet, bounced on pillows, played with trucks, and included the stuffed animals whenever possible. This family is just a ray of sunshine, especially on such a yucky day. Thanks, friends, for the fun morning!
