Baby E's Newborn Portraits

I met the most handsome baby the other day! Baby E slept like a champ throughout most of the session, even with the familiar sounds of his fur siblings running about. We were able to get a photo with everyone by promising treats. I'm excited to finish editing this session - just look at that lovely head of hair!

Baby C's Newborn Portraits

Baby C and her lovely family were such a treat to photograph. Just look at those perfect little toes! I caught a surprise shot of her smiling in her sleep and she has the cutest dimples! I just love unexpected shots like that. Welcome to the world, Baby C!

Maternity Session at Houston's McGovern Centennial Gardens

Last week I visited McGovern Centennial Gardens in the Houston Museum District for the third time to photograph A and J's maternity session. The landscape has matured since my first visit, and I discovered some new favorite spots for portraits. The aluminum - clad wall at the pavilion entrance added a surprise  modern twist to the session. A and J looked so happy - I am excited for the arrival of their little one!

Baby C's Newborn Photo Session

I visited the home of baby C last week and enjoyed photographing her along with her family. C's sister is cute as a bug, and she was so helpful during the session! C's house had great light, and I was happy to take advantage of it!

Baby J's Newborn Photography Session

I enjoyed photographing an adorable 10 day old baby the other day in the family's home. Baby J slept for the entire session, which made me happy! The family dog had just met him the day prior, and was very curious about the new addition.  [ngg_images source="galleries" container_ids="112" sortorder="1292,1290,1294,1291,1293" display_type="photocrati-nextgen_pro_blog_gallery" override_image_settings="0" image_quality="100" image_crop="0" image_watermark="0" image_display_size="800" image_max_height="0" spacing="5" border_size="0" border_color="#FFFFFF" display_captions="0" caption_location="below" display_type_view="default" ngg_triggers_display="always" ngg_proofing_display="0" captions_enabled="0" captions_display_sharing="1" captions_display_title="1" captions_display_description="1" captions_animation="slideup" order_by="sortorder" order_direction="ASC" returns="included" maximum_entity_count="500"]

Sweet Baby E's Newborn Session

I'm excited to share these photos I took of beautiful Baby E last week. Her three furry brothers were already quite protective of her, and stood watch during the entire session. At one week old, she has a great head of hair on her already! Welcome to the world, sweet baby E!

Houston Maternity Photographer - M's Maternity Session

Last week I enjoyed photographing M's maternity portraits at the Houston Arboretum. M showed up for the shoot perfectly styled in a white dress and a floral crown she made herself the night before, and her attire worked so harmoniously with the natural surroundings! Here are a couple of my favorites.

Houston Maternity Photographer - K's Houston Arboretum Maternity Portraits

Last  Sunday I met K and J bright and early at the Houston Arboretum for K's maternity portraits. Getting photo ready early in the morning can be tough, but the lighting makes it so worth it. I can't wait to meet the new addition!

Houston Newborn Photographer - S Family's New Addition

houston_newborn_photographer_siblings.jpg

Last weekend I enjoyed photographing the S Family's newest addition in their home. Their living room was flooded with natural light, so I didn't even have to bring out my studio lights. I must say that studio lights can yield some great results, but natural light is my favorite!

Welcome to the world, little guy!

Houston Wedding Photographer- Catherine's McGovern Centennial Gardens Bridals

I've only been to the McGovern Centennial Gardens once before. I knew on that visit that the grounds would be a perfect bridal portrait location. Catherine's bridal portrait session was the first session I have photographed there, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! Now that she's married, I'm excited to share a few!

A Family's Portrait Session - Russ Pittman Park

I am loving taking portraits at Russ Pittman Park in Bellaire. I met the A family there for portraits recently, and I discovered even more hidden gems within this small neighborhood oasis. The pocket prairie is a small cordoned area planted with native grasses that the kids loved. They had a blast running through the trails and playing hide and seek in the tall grass.

The park is a bit of a drive from my home base, but I think the resulting portraits are worth it!

Houston Family Photographer - G Family Portraits at Russ Pitman Park

This morning I had the pleasure of meeting the G family and visiting Pitman Park for the first time. This park is truly a hidden oasis in a residential area of Bellaire. I almost missed the entrance, but once I made my way to the trail through the crushed granite parking lot, I was greeted with a serene nature trail perfect for a family photo session or a relaxing walk. Between the backdrop of the park and the adorable G family, I captured some great photos! I still have several images to go through, but these caught my eye right off the bat! photocrati gallery

 

 

 

Family Photography - P Family Portraits at Marmion Park

A couple of days ago I met the P family at Marmion Park in The Heights to take portraits of their girls.  It was my first time photographing at this location and it was so convenient. The pavilion and surroundings had a deep southern air about them that made me feel like I was further east than Houston. This park is another one that gets my vote for shade and eliminating the need to walk very far for family portraits. I enjoyed the session despite the muggy heat, and I think the girls did, too:)
