"Place God first in your life and at the center of your marriage. We pray together every day."
-Evelyn Husband Thompson
It always so special when I get a client ask me to photograph them and i'm honored when they return year after year. After photographing their family last year I was thrilled to be back behind my lens for Evelyn and Bill again, this time for some headshots and couple portraits.
Bill’s first wife, Margie, succumbed to breast cancer after a valiant 13 year battle. Evelyn suddenly and tragically was widowed when her first husband Rick, the commander of STS-107, Space Shuttle Columbia. They were brought together through their loss and faith. Now married 11 years, they travel the world together sharing their message of hope, love, and faith. I was honored to capture their love story as well as provide them so portraits that they can use at all of the public speaking events. What a truly inspiring couple!
Helen's Garden is one of my absolute favorite spots to photograph in the League City area. Even in the winter they keep the garden looking fresh and green, providing my clients beautiful backdrops for their session! Jason, Angela, and their whole family got together here for their family session and we had a total blast. Between the location and this awesome family, plus the perfect overcast skies, this session was lovely from start to finish.
I always love meeting and photographing new families. On Black Friday, Laura gathered her family altogether for a big family portrait session and we had a lovely time. The weather was perfect and we practically had Heritage Park all to ourselves. It's so important to get photos with the one you love when you're altogether. I particularly loved photographing the oldest grandson who was far from camera shy! Wishing Laura and fam a very merry Christmas.

I've been blessed to know Stephenie and her family for several years through church. For their family portraits we started off in their loving home where I photographed Irene, Alex, and Emily with their instruments. Then we ventured to a local park to take in the beautiful portraits of everyone all together. We even snuck in some time for a few pics of Emily showing off her gymnastic skills.
This family has been through so much this past year since Harvey hit and I was more than thrilled to take their family portraits. I hope that as they continue to rebuild, that these photos will serve as a reminder of their love, hope, and strength.

One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is watching kids grow in front of my camera! Jason has matured from sweet little boy to a kind and thoughtful young man over the years. I was thrilled that he brought his beautiful and lovely girlfriend, Indi, along for his most recent portrait session. During the school year, Jason and Indi study at the prestigious HARID Conservatory, a professional training school for gifted young dancers. Jason's portrait sessions are always so much fun but adding Indi into the mix this time made things even more exciting. She is a gorgeous dancer and her energy is infectious! The two of them together make a perfect pair. Enjoy their fun loving, effortlessly beautiful portraits!
