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!
A year ago today I had the great fortune of ringing in the New Year with Kate & Chris as they became husband and wife! To celebrate their anniversary, here's a look back at their special day. So honored they chose me to be their photographer and share in the day with them. I loved bearing witness of their true love and wish them many more happy anniversaries to come. As always, much thanks goes out to my forever groom, Josh, for second shooting for me!
Happy New Year!
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.

Josh and I lived in Jersey for three years before we recently moved back to Houston... in our final weeks in Jersey, Brytt and Sean became some of our best (and most helpful) friends. They came over to our place countless times to help us pack and offer their love and support. We had all known each other through my church for about a year and half but it took us till the last few weeks of us living there to become close friends!

Allison is one of the most beautiful people I know. Growing up I always wanted to be just like her and her older sister, Laura. They were the epitome of elegance, not to mention they had the best personality; funny, witty, clever! As we progressed into adulthood they remained role models to me, but also became my friends. Its crazy to think back to our young ballerina days... Laura and I are now married and soon enough Allison will be joining the club. Soon after she and Brian got engaged last year she approached me and said "I don't have any wedding plans made yet but I know I want YOU to do our engagement portraits!"
