Alicia, James, and Victoria are some of the sweetest kids I know and I had such a fun time capturing portraits of them. Their sibling love is so strong and I think its quite evident in these images. To make these Spring portraits just THAT MUCH cuter they brought along their two bunnies, Flopsy and Mopsy, to share the spotlight. (Four days prior to the shoot, Mopsy had babies and one of them even made it into some of our photos!) Love this sweet family and hold them in a special place in my heart- so glad we got to do this Easter/Spring session with them.

After several time of rescheduling, thanks to the crazy wintery weather we've had this season (in Houston!) this schedule was worth the wait! When the day came for Caroline, Lauren, and Evelyn's portraits the weather couldn't have been lovelier. These sweet sisters wore cream lace dresses and bare feet as they showed off their beautiful trusty steed, Steve. It truly was magical seeing them all together, with the sun beaming down on their smiling faces. Twenty, thirty years from now, I hope that they look back at these photos with great fondness and treasure them always.
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!

I have the fortune of living near my two nieces that live here in Houston but my five other nieces and nephews live off in Arizona and I only get to see them about once a year. Recently the Arizona nieces and nephews came to town and getting some cousins portraits in was a must!

I first met Lorna and Nelson in 2007 when they guest performed with BAHBT. I'll never forget the huge impression they made on me. Not only were they world renowned international ballet rock stars but they were incredible kind and gracious human beings. As fate would have it, several years later they retired from Boston Ballet and decided to move to Houston! Nelson is currently at the helm of BAHBT, serving as its Artistic Director and Lorna opened up Feijoo Ballet School last year in Dickinson (where I just started teaching Tap and Theatre Dance!) They are the definition of loveliness and I was honored when they asked if I would capture their beautiful family through my lens.
