The M Family is Expecting!

Well the M Family has a lot to look forward to this December with a new baby due before the end of the year! Big brother was so patient during our shoot and was clearly genuinely excited about his tiny sibling… until I mentioned diapers, haha. Plus the Arboretum never disappoints as a family backdrop – even in the dead of Houston “winter”, it was balmy(ish) and green. Such a fun morning with a sweet family.

B Family 4th Birthday Portraits

What a treat to get to hang out with this cutie on the morning before her 4th birthday! And to top off the fun, I couldn’t believe how lovely the Arboretum was after our long, hot summer. Not only did we see LOTS of lovely flowers, we also had a visit from a friendly bunny and a shy turtle. Love this place and the smiles it brings out of the little ones!

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!

V Family Mini Session

The V Family won my Fun in the Sun Contest! After a couple of rain checks in our Houston monsoon season (or whatever you would call these last couple of weeks) we finally got to meet for our mini session at the Arboretum. And ya’ll, I cannot believe how many good shots we came away with in twenty minutes. Little Caroline just turned on the charm, happily smiling away and singing with her parents. What a delight!

L Family at the Arboretum

What a fun morning I had last weekend with the L Family at the Arboretum. These little boys were super pumped about the trees, bugs, berries, fish, you name it – this place is boy heaven! Basically we did lots of playing and caught some precious moments in the process. Thanks, L Family, for choosing this awesome location!
