Growing up at my dance studio I had the pleasure of knowing Tim. He was always so sweet and was a good friend to me. We've kept in touch over the years via Facebook and recently he reached out on behalf of his dear mama expressing interest in a family portrait session. All family sessions are special, but this one tugged at my heart; it was the first time they had the WHOLE family together including all siblings, spouses, and brand babies! I could feel the joy and excitement this family has as they celebrated they union and getting to seal the special event through photos.

Where do I begin about this awesome family? I fell in love with Scott last year photographing his headshots and I loved that mom and sister joined in for the fun this time around. They were interested in getting individual "personality" shots to use for modeling, audition headshots, and social media. The kids were absolutely adorable, making my job so easy and I loved that Becca donned her favorite fur coat and flowing skirt for her shots- isn't she gorgeous?! We enjoyed the beautiful weather and atmosphere at Bay Area Park for their session. Looking forward to the next one with this beautiful family!
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.

For Halloween this year my sweet little nieces Maddie and Penny dressed up as the White Swan and the Black Swan. These sisters love ballet so much just like their mama. Halloween morning came and even with a bit of rain we ventured to Clear Lake Park for some quick pics.
I want to remember how Maddie kept asking if that was real water.
I want to remember how Penny was a bit OCD about keeping the white and black feathers together.
I want to remember how Natalie critiqued Maddie's "swan" arms.
I want to remember how Penny kept her headband on though she usually can't stand wearing things on her head.
Can't wait for many more Halloweens with these sweet, funny girls!
