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!
First blog post of the new year! Welcome to 2018, y'all!
Recently I photographed my friend Kirstin. We first met several years back performing in 42nd Street at Casa Manana in Fort Worth. Kirstin is an incredibly talented dancer and performer- her Broadway credits include Cinderella & A Bronx Tale. In May of last year, while she was still in A Bronx Tale, she tore her ACL. Having family here in Houston, she has spent the last 6 months down here for surgery and recovery. And can we talk about what an epic 6 months she picked to be in Houston? She lived through Harvey, celebrated the Astros winning the World Series, and saw snow fall on Houston for the first time in almost a decade!
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.

Anna popped out of her car on the day of her session, skipped over to me and gave me a big hug. I could tell she was just as excited as I was! Her mom approached me during the summer about getting portraits done of Anna to celebrate her first year studying dance at Feijoo Ballet School (her teacher is my sister, Natalie!) We had a few delays when it came to scheduling but the day finally came and were were all so excited for it!
