“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you —
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”

I had the great pleasure of meeting Maddie when she was probably about 7 or 8 years old. She tagged along with her older sister to an audition of a kid's Musical Review I was directing and she impressed me with her natural spunk and vibrancy. Now, a decade later, stood before me a beautiful, confident young woman and I can't help but think how fast time flies. How is she already a senior?!

We had been planning Katie session for months when Corona made us reschedule. I was overjoyed to FINALLY make this session happen and give Katie some beautiful Senior Portraits! We took to the lovely Stephenson Park in Friendswood early on a Monday morning, mixing in traditional senior shots as well artistic portraits showcasing skills as a ballerina.

My last session before Corona Virus took hold of all of our lives, I got together with Austin & Colby for their Engagement Portrait Session. They brought along their sweet fur babies to join in the fun. Hermann Park served as the perfect setting for this young couple in love.
"Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress."
As this moment in time, when the world is filled with so much anxiety and uncertainty, let me put a pause in it all by sharing a bit of Davis' Senior Portrait Session. I have the great pleasure of being Davis' little sister's tap teacher and it made so much sense when I found out he's a drummer. Rhythm most definitely runs in their family!
