Oh, this session was so much fun. I pulled out nearly every baby trick up my sleeve after a slightly grumpy start, but man did she bring out the giggles and laughs! Narrowing down the choices for mom and dad was pure torture. And I must say that the best compliment I can receive is to be invited back by a family to create more images for them (check out her newborn session).
Pssstt…if you are wanting to create your own swoon-worthy set of family (or baby, or kid) images and want to beat the summer heat, I only have three more openings available in May, and the summer months are booking up fast. So click that “Contact” button down there below the comments to give me a shout before these spots are gone! And May bookings will get a special preview of my new kind of session – but that’s all I’m going to say about that. 🙂
I really thought I was content
counting sheep and staring at the ceiling
you came and showed me what it meant
that home is not a house but a feeling.
‘Cause when you’re around
you make me feel so cozy.
Home is where you are,
home is where I want to be.
Wherever you are,
you can come home to me.

Photographing a former photography studio owner’s family…yeah, just a little intimidating! So I was extra excited to be selected to create this family’s first real portraits together. They were up for anything and I really enjoyed our afternoon in downtown Tomball, capturing a variety of more carefully arranged portraits as well as some fun candids.
If you’d like to freeze your own family’s moments of playing, tickling, group hugging, laughing, and having a blast in general, you will want to sign up for Quick Clicks, my fantabulous email delights delivered right to your inbox, ‘cuz there will be a big announcement soon about a new kind of session I’ll be offering – and if you hate having to pick and choose which images to keep and which ones to leave behind, you’re going to love this!
One of the photography sites I follow, I Heart Faces, does a monthly photo challenge and this is the first one I’m participating in. Since the theme is “Happiness”, I knew right away which image I wanted to submit – I just took it this past weekend and I can’t help but smile every time I look at it. It makes my heart happy to capture a moment that not only records what a couple looked like at a particular moment in time, but that also gives you, the viewer, a peek into their relationship. There are few things in life more thrilling than being on the cusp of a new life journey, and preparing to join your life with another through marriage is, of course, a huge life journey – full of anticipation, perhaps a few nerves, and whole lot of happiness. So congratulations, Pastor David and soon-to-be Pastor Megan!
PS – the winner of this month’s challenge gets a Canon Rebel T3 camera kit – and since my first little Rebel was either lost or stolen (don’t ask), I’d love to have another one for my personal photo taking, especially when I don’t want to haul “The Beast” around on a simple outing. 🙂
