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!

Which photo is my favorite bluebonnet photo from this year, you ask? Well, *both* of my kids are in this one, and they are smiling too, so my admittedly biased opinion says this one:bluebonnetminis-9009

Clare’s Senior Photos

posted in: Portraits, Seniors | 0

The lovely, vibrant Clare is graduating on Saturday! I met her and her mother last night for senior photos. It has been raining and storming for weeks now, so we jumped at the chance to take advantage of the sunny day yesterday. I had so much fun photographing Clare, and I just loved the outfits she picked out (gotta have those cowgirl boots!). Besides being impeccably fashionable, I found out that Clare is also quite sporty. She played basketball, volleyball and softball during her high school years. Congratulations, Clare, your future looks bright!

Family Photos at Rochelle Park

posted in: Family | 0

I got to take pictures of yet another awesome family at Rochelle Park. This family is great, and I just love their purple color scheme! The kiddos were the best – sweet Adam, sassy Siena and cutie pie extraordinaire, Emma. Anna and Joe are such a cool couple, and have so much love for their children. Here are my favorite pictures of this cute bunch!

Family of Three with a Baby on the Way

posted in: Family, Maternity | 1

I got to take pictures of this cute bunch last week. Kate, Ray and Ray-mo are awaiting the arrival of baby Gia, and with Christmas around the corner, it was a great time for some family/maternity pictures! Kate and Ray are such a cute couple, and Ray-mo is quite a rambunctious three years old! Also, I love the blue and gray color scheme they picked for their outfits. Is this a sweet family, or what?

Perfect Harmony

posted in: Family | 1

I met this wonderful family at their home last weekend. This is a musical group–every child has learned either piano or violin. Max is graduating high school this year so his mom, Zoe, asked for some special pictures of him and his littlest brother, Damian. These two blue-eyed brothers have always had a special connection, and they melted my heart with their sweetness! Zoe told me that Max will often help Damian play piano, so of course we had to get some shots of that! I had mom jump in for a few shots as well, and I love the one of the three of them below!

Thomas is 6 Months Old!

posted in: Baby, Family | 2

Thomas is 6 months old, and his parents thought it would be a good time to take some photos of this cutie along with some family pictures! Thomas is such a sweetie pie. I love his red hair! His mom came prepared with baby blankets and some of his favorite books, which amped the cuteness factor up even more! I had a great time with these guys. Nathanael and Geralyn are so cool. When I met them at Centennial Park, we realized that we had met before at a party! It’s such a small world around here! I just love the photos we got, and I hope you do too!

Baby Joseph is One!

posted in: Baby, Family, Maternity | 0

I met Joseph and his parents on Saturday to take some picture for his first birthday. Joseph is such a smart little man! His impressive vocabulary includes “baby” “hoo-ray!” “quack” and many Spanish words (mom and dad both speak Spanish as well as English. I’m jealous.) Bryan and Elanita are such good parents to Joseph, and I am so excited for them because they are expecting another baby soon! Before we called it a day, we stopped to look at the ducks at on the pond. Joseph loved it! When mom and dad told him we were going to see the ducks, he started quacking in anticipation! What a cutie!

Welcoming a New Baby Girl

posted in: Baby, Family | 0

Saturday morning I met Tanya, Dave, William and the new addition to their family, a beautiful baby girl named Ellie, at Fritz Park. I loved capturing images of this beautiful family and their newest bundle of joy. During a feeding break for Ellie, while father and son were off playing, Tanya remarked on what a good father Dave is, and how seeing that quality in him was how she knew she had found the one. She then shared with me the story of how she met David and some of the details of their wedding. And here they are, two kids later! It’s awesome to see such a loving family welcoming a new baby. Congratulations to Tanya, Dave and your family!

Birthday Cake Smash!

posted in: Baby, Family | 0

 

What better way to celebrate a first birthday then a birthday cake smash? I met Vincent and his family at Rochelle park on Saturday. We snapped some family photos and then set up for birthday celebrations! This family is awesome! Brendan and Danna were so friendly and filled with love for their kids and each other. Jackson is the awesome big brother. He is such a sweet young man and a great helper! I was so impressed by his maturity. And Vincent–well he is quite the cutie pie, as you can see!

Jack’s Birthday

posted in: Baby, Family, Portraits | 1

Matt, Meg, and Jack are awesome, and  I was so glad to take family pictures of them for Jack’s first birthday. Jack is an adorable little ball of verve and jubilation. Throughout the session, he was all over the place, exploding with smiles and giving mom and dad bear hugs. I know Meg from my young moms’ group. She is caring and genuine, makes delicious chocolate zucchini bread, and loves riding motorcycles(this last one surprised me! Meg is full of surprises!). Matt is the perfect match for Meg, cheery, congenial, and adventurous. They are great parents who love each other and their little guy so much!
