"There are two things children should get from their parents: roots and wings."
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
With 4 of the 5 kids grown up and out of the house, it's hard to get everyone together let alone find time for family pics. So when Donna saw an opportunity to have everyone go down to Galveston for a beach weekend getaway, she kindly invited me along to capture the fun!

Getting the WHOLE family together for a family portrait session can often be a bit crazy- making everyone's schedules match up and coordinating outfits is complicated to start. And then when the day and everyone is finally all together. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings... A bit crazy? A bit. Worth it? Absolutely. I photographed Stephanie and her little family last year and was so pleased when she gifted a session to her mom OVER Christmas. They hadn't had professional photos taken as a family since Stephanie and her brothers were little. I loved capturing everyone all together in front of my camera and am honored knowing that these images will be family treasures for generations to come!

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.
