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!

Valentines Photo Booth, 2017

Here they are folks! The sweet little Valentines that turned out for this year’s Valentines photo booth. Regardless of your feelings about Valentines Day, I guarantee these tiny faces will melt your heart. Enjoy!

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!

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…

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!

G-Man’s “One in a Minion” Party

This is another one of those families that is incredibly special to me and I am honored to now be a part of their little G-man’s life. If you’ll remember, I did a newborn shoot of this guy and then a 1-year birthday last December. I cannot believe that this guy is now such a grown up 2-year old! Check out his redheaded preciousness (and his minion friends). *Note: I obviously did not take that first photo but I had to include one of me (a.k.a. Auntie RahRah) with the birthday boy.
