Rylee and Emilee made for the sweetest little models this summer. Before their family made the move to San Antonio, we got together in Galveston for their adorable sister portrait session. Rylee has developed into a beautiful young dancer and Emilee is following in her footsteps. I loved photographing their beautiful dancing through my lens. Not to mention they left me in giggles the entire time! Hope these images adorn the walls and shelves of their new home and that its not the last time I get to spend time with these fun loving, talented sisters.

What a journey it has been to watch Kennedy grow up. From a very young age, he showed such an eagerness to excel and talent to boot! I have great memories through the years of performing along side him in children's theatre, being his tap teacher, and cheering him on. One of our first shows together was Seussical, he played Jojo and I the Cat in the Hat! For the show's promotional stills we posed at Kemah Boardwalk and had a marvelous time riding rides and being silly! While planning his Senior Portaits, it seemed only fitting to return to the boardwalk. Kennedy, I wish you all the best as you continue to grow in your love and ability for the arts. The Rock is fortune to have you and I know with your hard work and determination, life will take you far.
Back at the beginning of the school year, I had the honor of directing and choreographing Feijoo Ballet School's inaugural production of Black Box on Broadway: A Musical Review. Thanks to the success of the Fall production, we were back this Spring with an extremely talented cast (which almost tripled in size!) and LOTS of great musical numbers. Throughout the rehearsal process I found myself in complete awe of each of these young performers. There was no shortage of talent in this bunch and they constantly impressed me with their hard work, enthusiasm, and tenacity. I particularly loved seeing the growth of those who participated in the Fall who were back for this production. Looking forward to watch this program continue to blossom and bloom!

I have loved Madison from the moment I met her. Not only is she a sweet girl with a heart full of gold but when you see her dance you go into a trance. For only 13 year old she dances with a sense of maturity and grace that I only see on very seasoned professionals. For her shoot I was ecstatic to give her some basic headshots that she could use for future performance and audition opportunities as well as throw in some artistic dance shots for fun! Watch put for this one, everyone- she's going places!

The moment I started this sibling session, I just knew their portraits going to be perfect! Katie is the most loving big sis, Nick loves to make jokes and be brotherly, and little Emma is a princess. Their sibling dynamic was a joy to photograph. After photographing the them altogether, we excused Nick, and caught some fun moments of just the girls. The last shots of them in their ballet leotards are some of my favorite. They're going to love looking back at these moments years from now and I'm honored to have captured it for them!
