Here is another sweet mini session from South Blvd. I loved the N Family’s wardrobe choice – the blues and whites really popped against our green backdrop. And these guys were ready to go, really maximizing our short twenty minutes together (no easy feat with three kiddos!). Thanks for joining in the mini session fun, N Family!
This summer, Sarah Sue Photography will be four years old (can you believe it?!). So when I recently began running low on CDs and jewel cases, I decided it was high time to upgrade my packaging. A huge piece of this decision is my recent purchase of a new printer!! With this baby, I am basically now a self-contained photographer/designer/print shop. I am able to make customer prints in-house, giving me total artistic control of my product from beginning to end. This is helpful in my recent attempts to branch out into the realm of fine art photography (more on that another day) as well as my ability to create pretty packaging for my customers. All of the inserts, tags, and logos were designed and printed by yours truly. So without further ado, feast your eyes! Next time you place an order with Sarah Sue Photography, this is the delightful gift you can expect to receive in the mail:
Two weeks ago, my heart got a little bigger when my newest nephew was born. Baby Joseph, as it turns out, is just a delightful human (much like his parents and siblings). And this Mother’s Day week, I am feeling very grateful for my sweet sister-in-law, who is such a fantastic momma to these kids who I love so dearly. Happy (late) Mother’s Day!
Okay I might have a new favorite location. For this spring’s mini sessions, I went to the lovely brick walkway on South Blvd. Yes it is a median in a residential area. And yes, it is totally beautiful. I can’t get over the size of those oak trees! And of course it doesn’t hurt that the V Family is also beautiful :-). Little Knox is a pro in front of the camera (remember when he was this little?). We got a TON of photos in our short session. As always, V Family, it was a delight!
Old friends are precious ya’ll. I have been so lucky to have a number of friendships that have stood the test of time. Bentley’s mom is a great friend of mine from college who now lives close-by once again. And as a result, I got to join in the fun at Bentley’s Brown Bear Birthday Bash!! There was so much fun to be had, it was tough to decide what to enjoy first. From the cute decorations to the bubble machine to the bouncy castle to the beautiful cake, that little boy was in two-year-old heaven. Such a fun day celebrating a sweet boy :-)
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!
