Wham! Bam! Punch! Pow!
Thanks to having a ballerina mother and being born right in the middle of Nutcracker season, sweet Maddie always has to wait have her birthday party in January! But boy was it worth the wait. Her Superhero party (with a strong Wonder Woman emphasis) was a huge hit. I'm amazed at how time flies with this little niece of mine. So grateful for the joy she exudes and the love she she gives so genuinely. Any day celebrating Maddie is a a SUPER fun day!
Hayley, who was once my young little tap student, is now a gorgeous young woman with a blossoming career in performance and writing. We had such a wonderful time during her headshot session, we were talking up a storm that I don't think Hayley realized I was taking pictures of her. So proud of her and can't wait to see where life takes her next. Honored to capture these shots of her to help her as opportunities come along the way!
Lindsy and I were classmates and cast members of many children theatre productions. In our adult life it has been wonderful to reconnect and become friends once again. Early December, Lindsy reached out to me about booking a headshot session. With a few reschedules thanks to the crazy weather we've had recenetly (seriously, what's up with this cold Houston winter?) we finally got together early January for her session, my first of 2018! Lindsy photographed beautifully. Her curly brown hair is just gorgeous and her eyes glistened. I am so lucky to have clients who are as beautiful on the outside as they are the inside. Wishing her the best as she uses these images to expand and grow in her professional endeavors.

Today we celebrated Maddie's, I mean, Wonder Woman's, belated birthday. Maddie's birthday is at the beginning of December, but since Natalie, her mother/my sister is in fully Nutcracker swing at that point, we always throw her party in January. Party pics to come, but until then enjoy our Wonder Woman themed photo shoot from Galveston. Proud of this sweet little niece of mine. The last four years have been filled with so much joy with Maddie in our lives. She really is a supergirl in our book! Happy Birthday, Maddie!
This awesome family was a wonderful way to finish out my year. Since the whole family was in town for the holidays, it was a perfect time to get everyone together for a session. I love that about the holidays- it brings us close to the loved ones we may not usually see! Dawn chose the beautiful Heritage Park (quickly becoming a new favorite for me!) for our location and we had a wonderful time! It may have been a bit chilly that morning, because Houston decided to have a winter this year, but they were all troopers. When everyone arrived at the park I asked if we wanted to do the big family photos first or start off in groups, to which the matriarch of the family quickly replied, "Family First!" Though her intent was to get out of the cold as quickly as possible, the phrase "Family First" put a HUGE grin on my face. I've known this family for a long time and no how important their family is to them. Honored to have forever captured them together in family portraits!
