Birthday Buddy! {Houston Heights Newborn Photography}

I can’t tell you how excited I was for this newborn session.  Not only was this little guy born on my birthday, but this family was my very first client after moving back to Houston early last year.  A mere 4 days after flying in from NY, before I even had a chance to buy a car, I was covering big brother’s adorable 2nd birthday party.  In the fall we did announcements for them expecting a second little one and then here we were in May with his arrival!  And the icing on the cake is this is one of the nicest, most loving families in the world.  Truly a joy in every way :)

While baby brother was feeding, big brother got his turn in the spotlight and was nice enough to show me around.  Such a sweetie! :)

Lovely Ladies {Woodlands Family Photography}

I love these gals.  Sweet, fun and oh so adorable!  We had a lovely and quiet morning session.  Except for the ducks who photo bombed us...which I gladly welcomed :)  Big sis was so into it that she even asked if she could take some pictures too.  My heart be still.  I gladly gave her my backup camera and loved watching her in action.  She got her own little gallery of photos and they weren't too bad I must say!  Keep clicking little one! :) Thanks for a fun morning girls!

Bright Eyes {Houston Heights Newborn Photography}

This baby girl has the most beautiful, big, bright eyes that I've seen on a newborn.   They are really showcased in my favorite shot which you can see on this link.  You can see that she gets them from her beautiful momma.  This session was so relaxed, simple and charming.  I love to incorporate the family's home in my sessions and this one was particularly important as they were soon to move and embark on a new journey across the world. Best of luck to this wonderful family, they will be missed!

And I even had the chance to snap a few of grandma and baby.  Love.

Top Model {The Woodlands, TX Family Photography}

Oh my goodness, this little lady knows how to work a camera!  I barely had to give her any prompts at all, she came up with ideas, and spots to pose and was so into the whole thing...made my job super easy!  Thanks for a fun session gals!

A Strawberry Social Birthday Party! {Houston, TX Birthday Party Photography}

This cutie pie is one lucky gal.  Her mom did such an amazing job with her 2nd birthday party this spring - just as she did the year before, and I'm sure for years to come :)  Such adorable details for a fun Strawberry Social!  It was such a perfect party with great weather and a wonderful group of guests.  Lucky little girl indeed!  ...and I sure am missing that nice spring weather we had now that we're in the thick of the summer heat!

And how about this sweet little goodbye hug.  Awwww :)

Sweet Little Dear {Sugarland, TX Newborn Photography}

This baby girl was such a dream.  She was a perfect little sleeper and just as adorable as can be.  And how cute is the pic of the little one with daddy's glove and ball.  Love a personal touch, makes a picture priceless.  Sweet family, sweet baby!

Sleeping Angel {Houston, TX Newborn Photographer}

This little guy fought sleep in the beginning, but once he was out, he was OUT!  I loved photograghing this family.  So relaxed, so happy, so loving.  Just so lovely.  This is one lucky little man.

Goodbye Spring {Houston, TX Family Photographer}

As we bid farewell (officially) to spring, I leave you with one last bluebonnet session.  I wish I had a chance to blog them all, but time somehow always slips away from me.  This precious family is expecting baby #2 very soon!  We had one last session with baby girl before she becomes a big sister.  And with all her energy, I'm sure she will keep mom and dad super busy!  She was as cute as can be running through these fields of bluebonnets.  I definitely got my workout as she would joyfully chase me from one end to another (and I was loving it!).  This fam is just as sweet as can be.  Can't wait to meet the new addition!!
 And I love the dichotomy of the flowers and graffiti of the photo below.  Gives the beauty a cool little edge.

Family's First Bluebonnets! {Houston, TX Family Photography}

This adorable family recently moved to Texas and when deciding on the location of their session, they decided on a location with bluebonnets as they happened to be peeking that weekend.  Perfect first family session in Texas, they look just gorgeous in the wildflowers!

Can't Get Enough of the Bluebonnets! {The Woodlands, TX Family Photography}

These cuties are picture perfect in their bright outfits and those happy smiles.  And that dress, oh how I love a twirly girly dress!!  I had the honor of capturing photos of the smallest little guy in the bunch (here with his momma) when he first arrived into this world a little over a year ago, and it's been so fun to watch him grow.  It was so nice to have the chance to meet his sweet little cousins on this day, all such great kiddos!

More Bluebonnets! {Houston, TX Family Photographer}

More of these lovely bluebonnet sessions from last month.  Check out these sweet little brothers, love the hugs and kisses! Such a great family and fun session!

Had to add this pic as well.  This little fella was pulling this wagon all around with such determination, I just thought this one was too cute :)

And thanks to dad for these fun shots on the flip side!

Texas Bluebonnets {The Woodlands Family Photography}

Things have been busy around here!  As I start to *try* and catch up on the blog, I'm starting out with this beautiful baby girl and her stunning momma.  They were the perfect focal point to the bluebonnets that were still fresh in bloom that morning. These soft and tender moments between a mother and her child always make my heart melt.  Always.  You can just see and feel the love here...

Ohhhh-kaaaay! {Houston, TX Family Photographer}

I keep hearing his sweet little voice in response to my many (many, many) requests to do things for me for the photos.  And he always very obediently and willingly (but probably with a touch of annoyance from my multitude of requests) would endearingly say "Ohhhh-kaaaay".  He was so into his airplane and wagon, you can just see the determination on his face as he pushes or pulls them along.  I love this age, when kids are so real and natural.  You can capture the most unexpected things from their pure candidness.  And the colors, oh my how I love these colors.  Mom did such a wonderful job coordinating it all.  Just fabulous!

And I had to get this shot in of their wonderful shoes!  LOVE!!

And a little behind the scenes shots thanks to mom :) Me bringing the little man back to the "scene" ;)

After the Rain {Houston, TX Family Photographer}

This session took place on a very rainy day.  Had it been any other session, we probably would have had to re-schedule to prevent the whole family getting all dressed up, only to have to call it off.  But since this family IS family, it made those logistics a little easier.  This was during the very busy Fall holiday session time, so there wasn't much room to re-schedule.  I was at my sister and brother-in-law's house and we watched as the rain fell most of the afternoon.  Finally, it cleared up a bit, so everyone quickly changed and we hopped in the car in hopes it would hold out.  But on the drive to the Arboretum, it started to rain buckets again.  We waited in the car, and it let up a bit so we dashed out to start the session before the rain came again.  And boy did we luck out, not only was the Arboretum totally empty but the colors were perfect and we didn't have to hunt for shade to shoot in.  Little man's knees got a little wet and dirty, but all part of the fun!

And one of my favorite shots of the day of my darling nephew

Lil' Buckaroo's! Rodeo Photo Booth {Houston Heights, TX Children Photographer}

I had SO much fun taking photos of these little buckaroo's!  Everyone was so cute in their rodeo outfits, I was so impressed with the variety of adorable cowboy and cowgirl outfits!  Thanks to everyone who came out and to my whole family for all their help!

Cowgirl of the day with her great "catch" ;)

Hearts {Houston Heights, TX Newborn Photographer}

This sweet little man has an awesome nursery that mom and dad put together for him.  I instantly loved the gorgeous art work with a heart above his crib.  But it wasn't until I was editing the photos from the session that I noticed hearts popping up elsewhere.  In the rug, in the shadows, those cute little lips of course.  But even mom and dad perfectly fell into heart shaped poses without any sort of direction.  Love is all around this lovely family! 

And who doesn't love a good stink eye ;)

Cake Time! {Houston, TX Family Photographer}

There was a very special occasion centered around this sweet family session...someone turned one!  How hysterical and yet incredible adorable is the photo of the happy older siblings chowing down on their sister's cake as she has a meltdown behind them.  Aww memories :)  Such a cute family!

Love this cute family shot!

Fall Magic {Houston, TX Family Photographer}

I loved everything about this session - the colors, the family, the perfect leaves to throw around and for the kiddos to have fun in!  And how I love these natural, tender moments that sometimes just *happen* - magic.

Learning IS Fun!

I recently attended a photography workshop held by the lovely and talented Michele Anderson of Pinkle Toes Photography.  I learned a ton, met some amazing ladies and had such a wonderful experience!  I'm looking forward to implementing some new and fun things this year!  Below are some images from the workshop - some are pull backs and some directly of the families.  In order are: headshots of us taken by Michele, a family/newborn session with a gorgeous family who welcomed us all with tiaras (love!), an outdoor family session, and lastly are shots of various "models" at different stations taken with our assigned partners (mine was Kami from Kami Friday Photography - so fun!)  I didn't want this workshop to end :(  Michele, you rock!  Miss all you lovely ladies!

This super sweet big brother LOVES to hug, he completely and totally melts my heart.  He's going to be one amazing brother to this new little bundle!  Happiness just exudes from this wonderful family.  Love it!
