It is finally spring in Houston! And along with the rising temperatures, we have had a sloppy month (which is good and bad for photo shoots – muddy locations but lovely light). The B Family was so gracious on a wet Saturday morning, trudging through Hermann Park after a heavy storm. And the resulting photos are just precious! Their son was totally ready and willing to interact with his surroundings, which made it a joy to follow him and watch his reactions through my lens. He was especially excited about the train, the ducks, the playground, and (best of all) his very own pup. Thanks so much for braving the mud with me B Family! Enjoy!
My dear friend Dorothy has married the love of her life. Awhile back I had the honored of taking their engagement photos at Forest Park in St Louis. And just a couple of weeks ago, I stood up with them in their wedding ceremony after photographing the pre-wedding prep and the bride and groom’s first look. What a day. The joy and the tenderness were palpable. Congratulations Josh and Dorothy!
Last weekend, I had the joy of visiting my brother and sister-in-law to celebrate my niece’s sixth birthday. We had such fun and even managed to squeeze in a little maternity session because… my sister-in-law is about to give birth to a baby boy!! I am over the top excited to meet this guy. I told my sister-in-law that I am so thankful she keeps giving me little friends. My heart is so full of love for this family. Can’t wait to see this new fella’s face in just a few weeks!
I am thrilled to say that this dear friend of mine has found the man of her dreams. AND he happens to be in Houston, which is convenient for Houstonian friends such as myself. For their engagement shoot, these two chose the little park next to the Menil Gallery which, on that warm day, was chock full of bikes and picnickers and frisbees and dogs. All the activity actually made for nice, relaxed backgrounds – a perfect atmosphere for this relaxed pair. For good measure, we capped off the night at the Black Lab Pub, where we made good use of the phone booth, giant chess set, and colorful doors. I cannot wait to see this happy couple get hitched – the big day is quickly approaching!
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Valentine’s Day Photo Booth this weekend in the Heights. Take a look and enjoy your photos!
It seems like just yesterday that Baby Christopher looked like this! And now he is a year old!! This is one busy little guy ya’ll – crawling at top speed, perusing his toys, and waving at the cutest moments (including at his birthday candle – one of my favorite pics below :-) ). I was honored and so happy to be included in this special birthday celebration. Some of my very favorite people, right here…
I love seeing my friends as mommies. And this particular mama has plenty of practice already with these two cuties. So it was really special to get to spend a quiet morning with just my sweet friend and her new little bundle, Matthew. Golly this guy knows how to behave for a photo shoot. He just snuggled up and snoozed away, throwing in the occasional smile. There’s a laid-back third child for you right? Welcome to the world, Baby Matthew!
I just can’t resist posting a couple of these. Remember Baby Jonah? Well this is how he looks now. Be still my heart.
Remember my beautiful friend Dorothy from this post? Well she has met the love of her life and is getting married! And, lucky for me, I happened to have a trip to St Louis on the calendar just in time for an engagement shoot in Forest Park. It was so fun to see these two having such fun together (and looking fantastic if I do say so myself). Can’t wait to celebrate with the two of you – it’ll be here before we know it!
