April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.”   -William Shakespeare

Every year, the magical transformation that unfolds in my backyard during the last two weeks of March is indeed a balm for the soul.  The grass, which has languished, brown and dormant, is suddenly awakening with the deep, emerald green of new growth.  Our azaleas, those ubiquitous Southern blooms, have burst forth from their buds, releasing their secreted potential into brilliant displays of white and pink.  And who can forget the trumpet lily bulbs?  They are still hidden away beneath the crumbly earth, but will soon be pushing their way skyward, reaching for the sun’s sparkle, scarlet and proud.

Each season brings its own gifts, and the beauty of renewal is always my favorite of spring’s calling cards.  The metamorphosis of my backyard view inspires me to open my eyes and see, really see what’s around me.  Like the fact that my daughter’s 6-year molar is now fully ascended in the back of her mouth (I’ll spare you the photo!).  My son, lean and bemoaning his shorter stature, has almost grown out of his fall jeans.  It’s time to capture them again, right now, in the midst of their own transformations, wiggly and giggly and pure, showcasing the exuberance of a childhood that is fully “in bloom” and all too quickly lost.

If you want to celebrate the awakening of spring with some gorgeous portraits of your most precious people, I’d love for you to join me for my “In Bloom” Limited Edition sessions, May 7-9.  I’ll have a perfectly darling, natural light studio set (northwest Houston, TX) for morning and afternoon sessions – perfect for babies through elementary-age kiddos.

The late afternoon/evening sessions will be held at a lush arboretum in north Houston.  Moms, it’s a perfect opportunity to be photographed with your kids, or surprise Grandma with a Mother’s Day gift she will always treasure – a photo shoot with her grandbabies!
