Bluebonnet Sessions – 2017

posted in: Bluebonnets | 0

That’s a wrap on bluebonnet sessions, 2017 edition! I had a lot of fun meeting and photographing many different families this spring! I love how every family brings their own personalities and styles to the photos! Here are some of my favorites from this year!

One Year Old Bluebonnet Session

posted in: Baby, Family | 0

I just love spring in Texas–the cool temperatures, verdant greens, and best of all, the wildflowers! When a sweet little boy has a birthday this time of year, bluebonnet photos are a must! Thomas just turned one. Last time I photographed this family, he was six months old. It is so awesome to see how much he’s grown! He’s walking now, and watching him tottering around losing his balance and tumbling into the flowers– it was stinkin’ adorable. Another big difference is how striking the color of his hair has gotten–this little guy’s red head and the bright blue flowers made for an awesome color combination! Of course I can’t neglect to mention Nathanial and Geralyn. They are still as cool as ever, and it’s always a pleasure to hang out with them! The night we took these photos I got to relish another Texas experience — an intense, booming thunderstorm! We finished up before it started coming down, but I think you can see some ominous purple tones in the sky in some of these pictures. Like Texas in the spring, this family is pleasant and bright, and a lot of fun!

Baby Adelina

posted in: Baby, Family | 0

Introducing Baby Adelina! I had the honor of photographing this sweet little girl at just 7 days old. Naturally, Mary Clare and Damian simply adore this beautiful girl. When the baby was getting tired, Damian stepped in to walk her around. Mary Clare told me that her husband often gets the baby to sleep this way. This time, however, Adelina rewarded him a little surprise of her own (one of the dangers of diaper-less newborn photos!). Both parents took it so well, and were totally cracking up as they cleaned up the areas of collateral damage. Seeing their good-humored reaction to the mishap, I can tell these two have what it takes to be great parents!
About a week after our newborn session, we met up for some bluebonnet photos, which I thought was an awesome idea! What better way to commemorate the time of year that this beautiful girl was born? Congratulations, Damian and Mary Clare! You will be wonderful parents!

Family, Easter, Bluebonnets Galore!

posted in: Family, Uncategorized | 0

My blog has become overgrown with bluebonnets, and I am loving it! This time of year is amazing! It’s as if Texas knows it’s Eastertide, and decorates accordingly!

You may remember this family from a previous post. This time, I got to take some fresh and fun Easter pictures. Their bright personalities perfectly complemented the vibrant flower field.

Since I last photographed this awesome family, I have started following Taylor Marshall’s blog. Great stuff!

 

Veronica

posted in: Portraits | 0

Last week I wanted to practice some photography techniques, so I asked Veronica to be my model. We traipsed over to a bluebonnet field that Zach had spotted from his classroom window (way to look out, honey!) Veronica’s style is so classic and her expressions are intense and gorgeous. She was super awesome about the whole thing.

Isn’t her hair amazing? Those CURLS! And I love the color! Note to self: Not the best idea to ask your model if they have heard of there being snakes in bluebonnet fields, and then ask them to lie down in a bluebonnet field…

Don’t worry, we didn’t see any snakes!

 

Ria’s Birthday

posted in: Baby, Personal | 2

My baby girl is one year old! The year that has gone by since we first met her has been one of the happiest in my life. When we first brought Ria home, she was so tiny and wrinkly, Zach called her a “fusticated old man”. I remember I would wake up in the middle of the night to look over at my sleeping baby, and would be overcome with joy. It felt like Christmas. I still get that feeling often when she gives me her huge scrunchy toothless grandma smile or when she babbles to herself nonchalantly as she gets a diaper change. I am so grateful for this past year. I am grateful for my family and friends who have been kind, supportive and loving to the three of us. I am grateful for my husband, who gets up early every morning(often sleep deprived) to go work a long day. He lives out Christ’s sacrificial love for us everyday. He always encourages me, and always lets me know that he loves me and Ria. Most of all I am grateful to God for the loved ones in my life, and the material and spiritual gifts he has given me.  I am remarkably blessed. RiaBdayb-0850RiaBdayb-0754 RiaBdayw-0765Rbdaycollage1 RiaBdayb-0790Rbdaycollage2 RiaBdayb-0880

Easter Bluebonnets

posted in: Baby, Family | 2

This is my first spring in Texas, and my first experience of the bluebonnets! Spring is quickly turning out to be my favorite Texas season.

The bluebonnets are just in time for Easter pictures. I met Travis, Tricia and Edmund in a azure speckled field. Edmund is one happy baby. He always greats me with a huge, open mouthed, toothless smile that often has just a hint of cheesiness. Actually it looks something like this:

Travis and Tricia are such chill parents. Tricia is absolutely hilarious. She’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind, and her brutal honesty about everything (herself included) cracks me up. Check out her blog here.

Dorothy & Michael

posted in: Couples, Engagements | 4

Dorothy and Michael are so in sync, it’s like they have been married for years. Their story is classic; they have known each other since they were about 12. I asked them once if it was love at first sight, to which Dorothy responded with a smirk that when they first met she thought Michael was short. This kind of playful levity is characteristic of their dynamic. In addition, they share a peacefulness that is a testimony to the stability of their relationship. These two are meant to be! Congratulations, Dorothy and Michael!
