Every time I photograph Sophie I'm sure of a couple of things: 1) We are going to have a lot of fun & 2) She's going to work the camera! For Sophie Fall session we used her lovely backyard for a backdrop, taking in the beautiful greenery and waterside. I have the pleasure of teaching Sophie at Feijoo Ballet School and week to week I see her grow as a dancer. However it's during these seasonal portrait sessions with her that I step back and see how much she's growing and maturing in a lovely young lady! And of course Bear, her large furry companion, joined us for a few shots, making the session even MORE fun. Looking forward to the next one with these two!

Alicia, James, and Victoria are some of the sweetest kids I know and I had such a fun time capturing portraits of them. Their sibling love is so strong and I think its quite evident in these images. To make these Spring portraits just THAT MUCH cuter they brought along their two bunnies, Flopsy and Mopsy, to share the spotlight. (Four days prior to the shoot, Mopsy had babies and one of them even made it into some of our photos!) Love this sweet family and hold them in a special place in my heart- so glad we got to do this Easter/Spring session with them.

One place to call home."
After several time of rescheduling, thanks to the crazy wintery weather we've had this season (in Houston!) this schedule was worth the wait! When the day came for Caroline, Lauren, and Evelyn's portraits the weather couldn't have been lovelier. These sweet sisters wore cream lace dresses and bare feet as they showed off their beautiful trusty steed, Steve. It truly was magical seeing them all together, with the sun beaming down on their smiling faces. Twenty, thirty years from now, I hope that they look back at these photos with great fondness and treasure them always.
I simply adore my clients. I'm blessed to photograph each and every one of them. Recently I was contacted by Karilyn, owner of For Better or Best, who designs customized wedding stationary. She was in need of some photos for her business' updated website as well as photos with her husband and two puppies. The more Karilyn and I emailed about the vision for her session, the more excited I became to make her vision come to life.
Sophie is one of my lovely students at Feijoo Ballet School. After her mom saw my photography work for Black Box on Broadway this past Fall she approached me about taking portraits of sweet Sophie. The photos would be used for their annual Christmas card as well as in promotion for their family business, Gay Family Auto in Dickinson. Photograph an adorable child AND have my photos on a billboard? Sounds great to me!
