Brittney & Zach are getting married next spring, and so we tackled their engagement session a few weeks ago. ¬†It was just starting to warm up, so while it was hot, it wasn’t pass out hot! ūüėČ

Brittney wanted a cute way to showcase their wedding date for the save the dates.  She mentioned that she was bringing a bike to take pictures with and so I suggested maybe balloons!  We connected with Big Ass Balloons and set it all up.  With the help of their very kind friend, Alex, we were able to guarantee that the balloons stayed nicely in place (thank you Alex!).

We ended up going past sunset and the skyline looked so pretty at twilight. ¬†These two are both fightin’ Texas Aggies who love the Astros and I’m looking forward to the next year of celebrations with them!

Mother

  1. A female parent.
  2. A woman who gives birth to her child.
  3. A maternal figure that treats dependents with great care and affection.

 

Mothers come in all forms. Some give birth.  Some adopt or foster.  Some marry into motherhood.  Others take on the role with friends or family children.

I’m at the age where it has become evident that if I were going to have them, I would have by now. ¬†Watching births, seeing women become mothers is fascinating for me. ¬†I follow doulas and birth photographers. ¬†Seeing the emotion of the hard work – mother and baby, laboring together – it’s incredible.

I always want to know…what’s it feel¬†like to hold your first baby in your arms, to hear its first cry? To experience the bond of breastfeeding? ¬†What happens to your soul when your baby first locks eyes with you? ¬†Is it all just too hard to compute? ¬†Do you soak it in and love every second of these fleeting moments? ¬†Are you just exhausted and glad it’s over?

 

This is my Julie. ¬†I’ve photographed her engagement, bridal, wedding, first pregnancy, her daughters first year, and now her second maternity. ¬†She’s one of my closest friends and I love her dearly. ¬†I’m so happy for her and her growing family.

To all of the mothers out there, rejoice in the miracle that you’ve experienced. Your body literally made an organ to sustain your baby. ¬†God is a mastermind and I stand in awe.

It’s true.

I do not photograph many small humans with the exception of newborns, but sometimes exceptions are made. When I do, I prefer past couples who turn into parents. I’m kinda in love with how Penelope’s one year session came out.

This first one just seemed like a normal expressionless image Рuntil I saw more Рand zoomed in.  Now all I see is my favorite.

Enjoy. ¬†She’s a precious little being.

Meredith & Brian chose the setting of Brian’s family ranch in Round Top, Texas for their engagement session. ¬†I’ve never made the drive to Round Top and wasn’t expecting such a gorgeous drive. ¬†It took no time at all and the surrounding countryside was so peaceful.

We weren’t sure how the weather would hold up, since Texas weather can be a bit temperamental. ¬†We decided to go for it and it turned out to be a pretty and pleasant day. ¬†The session was full of adventure, riding around on the ranch mule (not an animal, btw), finding crawfish in the fields where we were shooting and even getting Brian’s dad’s gorgeous McCormick tractor out for a few fun shots.

Afterward, we went into town and enjoyed the evening with some good gourmet pizza, salad and I forget what else from this new restaurant that was opened by Houston’s own Armando’s called Lulu’s. ¬†Sooooo good! ¬†It was time well spent with two fun and interesting people, getting to know them just a little more each time before the biggest day of their lives. <3

They walked in and I noticed Kegun’s big genuine smile, and how beautiful and tall Amanda is. ¬†We sat down and I got to hear about what was most important to them on the wedding day. ¬†I got to hear their concerns and what they were really looking forward to. ¬†It was the last quarter of 2018 and these two were looking at a 2020 wedding at the gorgeous and ever romantic McGovern Centennial Gardens.

Though Amanda was more soft spoken, she had so many GREAT questions to ask.  I loved that she knew what she was looking for and felt super lucky that they both felt that I was the best fit to capture their special moments.

They completely ROCKED their engagement session.  There was *literally* zero warm up time.  First set of shots were some of the best ones and I think they were hiding the fact that they totally did model work in their teens.

Look through, give them some love and I’ll see you all soon!

The first weekend in March, a really sweet and laid back couple got married with all of their beautiful family and friends.  Ashton Gardens was the setting for this gorgeous and emotional wedding day and everything went perfectly.

Watching Lucila interact with all of her sisters and her mother was like getting a glimpse into their lives. ¬†Seeing Russell laughing and joking around with his groomsmen made me happy. ¬†This was the most serious I’ve ever seen them. ¬†I know that these two people will make each other very happy and love each other deeply with support of their family.

This is a small account of the festivities on their most beautiful day.

Stephanie & Matt got married in a gorgeous ceremony at the end January at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church here in Houston. ¬†Surrounded by lots of friends and family, they said their vows and then headed into the church gym that had been transformed into an elegant setting. Along with the help of some great wedding vendors, Stephanie’s Mom made all of the floral arrangements and saw to it that Stephanie & Matt’s posh vision came to life.

Sunset happened right during the ceremony and so they opted to take minimal portraits after the wedding so that they could spend more time at cocktail hour; stay tuned for their after session coming soon! The speeches, traditions and dancing were just a few things I loved about this wedding. ¬†Watching Stephanie’s sister Eleni dance for the new bride and groom during one of the traditional Greek songs was so AMAZING!

Your wedding day will be the fastest 10+ hours ever. ¬†Make sure you savor the moments, enjoy your day and that it’s a reflection of you both.

This precious newborn girl was so good for me! ¬†From the age of 19 to 25, I had roommates in college. The one consistent roommate was Jessica, who I met in college choir. We survived the poor college kids days (like the time we went to Jack in the Box and ordered one taco because we didn‚Äôt have enough money for two and they were only .99¬Ę!! ¬†Thank goodness JITB felt sorry for us and gave us 2 anyway!).

Now that we are full on adulting grown ass women, we can def afford all the tacos ?

We don’t see each other often, but I did get the honor of photographing baby Norah when she was tiny enough to bundle.  Love you Jess!  You and Mark made a perfect baby girl!

Heather & Jeff are getting married this year, and wanted to take their engagement photos at The Houston Museum of Fine Arts – specifically at the Cockrell Butterfly Center. ¬†I was so excited to take these photos for them, and boy were they troops! ¬†I knew to expect humidity, but when hair and makeup are involved, you have to be careful where you shoot, and make sure to find the ‘cool spots’, ha!

 

We saw so many beautiful butterflies, but not many were as curious as us as we were about them, so we just enjoyed the environment and ended our session at their place, complete with their rival football jersey’s that just happen to have the same colors! ¬†Really looking forward to their beautiful day ūüėČ

Hailey & Tyler wanted to take engagement pictures in my hometown of Palestine, Texas. ¬†The thing is, they are from a little town in Nebraska. ¬†That little town just happens to be maybe 15 minutes away from where a close friend of mine grew up…such a small world!

So, they are currently located in Palestine of all places for Tyler’s job! ¬†I was super honored to have been able to capture their engagement pictures before they tie the knot back home. ¬†They even brought their ADORABLE and very excitable labradoodle, Loki. Isn’t he precious? ¬†I really love when couples include their pets (aka children) in pictures.

Thank you both so much for asking me to capture this time in your lives <3
