R Family Maternity Portraits

Get ready for some posts, ya’ll, I am playing catch-up on the blog! I’m going to start out with my most recent shoot and work backwards a bit. So first things first – last week’s maternity shoot with the R Family! I love spending time with these people and it’s an added bonus to get to photograph them (aren’t they beautiful?). Plus we had some really fun light to work with and we made the most of it – the vibrant colors of front-lighting, stark silhouettes of backlighting, and balanced tones of dear ole shade.¬†Enjoy!

The G Family is Expecting!

We managed to squeeze in a last-minute family shoot for the G Family, who is expecting kiddo #3! What fun it was to catch up with these sweet boys and their parents. Those are going to be some good big brothers. I couldn’t be happier for this growing family ūüôā

S Family (+1)!

The S Family is having a baby! This was such fun for me because Mr. and Mrs. S and I used to work together as singleton engineers in what seems like a former life (I am now a counselor and photographer, they are married and expecting a baby – a lot can happen in four years). They came prepared to wander in the very muddy Arboretum, good-natured as always. Their fun senses of humor are easy to see in the photos. I’m so excited for this growing little family!

The M Family is having a baby!

This is a couple that is totally gorgeous inside and out (cheesy I know, but true). So I was super pumped to learn that they are expecting a baby! I cannot wait to meet that little one face to face. In the meantime, it was wonderful to get to photograph this family of three at Rice U. Mr. And Mrs. M were so patient with me, trekking around the campus and braving the Houston mosquitoes, smiling sweetly all the while. Thanks so much M Family!

Mini Sessions, Day 1

Well, the response for Hermann Park mini sessions was super positive! So much so that I had to add an additional Saturday to accommodate everyone. Round 1 happened last weekend and was such fun. I love mini sessions because I get to take so many different types of photos in one morning. Thanks to all the families that came out!

R Family Maternity Shoot

Last weekend, I met Philip and Amanda in Faust Park for some maternity pics. ¬†What a fun shoot! ¬†Philip and Amanda were totally game to try anything. ¬†We began in the vintage carousel and then made our way throughout the historic village (so many cool locations in one place – Faust Park is awesome!). ¬†And they are such a fun couple. ¬†My favorite pics came from the totally un-posed moments that they shared, whispering and laughing together. ¬†Nothing makes for a beautiful photo like twue wuv ūüôā

Mr and Mrs Smith are having a baby!

My friends the Smiths are expecting! ¬†And if I do say so myself, Mrs Smith is looking absolutely beautiful. ¬†Thankfully the weather cooperated with us this time around and we got to enjoy the lovely flowers in Forest Park. ¬†On days like this, God’s goodness feels so tangible. ¬†It just does not get better than babies and flowers on a warm spring day!

Happy Birthday Noah!

Noah is having a big month – he just celebrated his second birthday AND his little brother is almost here! ¬†This little guy is (clearly) adorable and so so cooperative. ¬†He actually got happier as the shoot went on. ¬†Rather than melting down, his smile just got bigger and bigger. ¬†What a fun morning – this did not feel like work at all. ¬†I can’t wait to take pics of little brother in the near future!
