H Family Portraits

Last weekend I met the H Family at Hermann Park for a morning family session. I knew that they have five children and that grandma and grandpa would also be joining us. Now, of course, the number of people was not a problem… but it did make me think that we would only end up with a few usable photos. More people means more variability, especially with so many children in the mix. But this family just defied all my expectations. Our shoot was fun and easy and left us with A LOT of sweet photos. Really a delightful morning. Thanks H Family!

Baby Barrett has arrived!

I’ve been in newborn heaven this month. Baby Barrett’s mama is an old friend and it was SO fun to see her doing her mommy thing. This family is precious ya’ll. Please make note of Barrett’s friends: his Terrible Towel (for mama’s team), his badger (for daddy’s team) and his turtle (a sweet gift from grandma). That’s what I call socialization :-)  Enjoy the pics!

Welcome Baby Caroline!

Well it must be Fall because Sarah Sue is busy! First on the blog docket… sweet Baby Caroline. This little lady was just a delight, totally ready for her close-up. And big brother found time to join in between songs and games (swoon). L Family, thank you for allowing me into your home to hang out with your growing family!

L Family Newborns

Well clearly life has gotten in the way of my photo posting. In my world, it should never take this long to post totally adorable newborn pics. And yes, there are still bluebonnet photos yet to come – stay tuned!

This shoot was just a delight. The L family’s oldest boy has already wowed me a couple of times with his posing abilities. It was no surprise then that he was able to sit sweetly with his brand new brother who, for his part, slept like a champ through the whole ordeal. Thank you for welcoming me into your home during this sweet transitional time, L Family!

M Family Bluebonnet Mini

Next up in our bluebonnet lineup – the M Family! Not gonna lie, I had a lot of fun with these kiddos. Big sister wanted to play in our lovely flower field and gave me some fantastic candid moments. And little brother’s eyes matched the bluebonnets – need I say more?

K Family Mini Session

Okay here we go with the bluebonnet minis! Ya’ll I am feeling super proud of myself for scheduling these mini sessions at a time when the flowers were SO beautiful. Maybe I have a future in flower prediction (is that a thing?). Ultimately though, it’s those kiddos that make the shoot. And what a precious turnout I had this year. Feast your eyes on the K family…

V Family Newborns

The V Family has welcomed their second baby (little girl G) to the world! I always love newborn photo shoots but this little one was just a delight to photograph. She was willing to pose, persevere through costume changes, pose again, get kisses from big brother, get moved around from here to there, and all the while POSE. What a sweet little trooper! Feast your eyes on the cuteness…

The R Family in San Antone

It is extra special when I get to do photo shoots in my hometown of San Antonio. And it is extra extra special when that means I get to spend time with the families of long-time friends. That is definitely the case here, as Mrs. R and I have known each other since ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (what?!). And if I do say so myself, their little P is just cute as a smiling button. She sat and posed and totally breezed through her photo op. Plus we had the added treat of a little grandparents’ cameo! Enjoy…

Tiny Valentines Photo Shoot

Boy did we have fun last weekend. This is the second year in a row that I have done a playgroup photo shoot for Valentines Day and the response this year was incredible! Thanks to everyone who dressed up your tiny Valentine and came out to join in the fun. I, for one, had a fantastic time. Enjoy your photos!
