July Weeknight Mini Sessions | Houston Photographer

It’s officially summertime in Houston!  Most of us have such packed schedules in the summer, whether it’s going out of town on weekends, or neighborhood parties.  I’ve decided to offer mini sessions in July in the area around the bayou, on weeknights to accomodate all of our crazy lives!

Houston Photography Mini Sessions, July 2013

This is also a kind of last photo session blitz before my maternity leave ends and life gets even crazier (I’ll be returning to my day job as early as August, and photography will continue on a part-time basis on weekends).  I’m offering sessions at 6:45pm (subject to availability & weather), with 20-30 minutes of shooting and 8 digital images with print release.  You also have the option to purchase high quality prints through me at a la carte prices.  Book now — this is your last opportunity to get a mini session at this price!  The next time I offer mini sessions will be in the fall, and new rates will apply!

Heather’s Beautiful Family | Houston Child Photographer

This is the final post of my “Mother’s Day” mini sessions — you may recall that the night before the last mini session date was very wet and rainy in Houston.  As a result, the ground was pretty soggy and, in places, muddy.  We decided that morning to reschedule Heather’s session, since she has two little ones and they both have so much energy that we would have ended up with a big mess that day.  Instead, we met up in the same park this past Saturday, when conditions were much drier!  Plus, we enlisted her husband’s help with the kids, and got some really cute shots of the whole family.  I just loved their sweet daughter, and their son is so very pensive and serious, which I think is captured here!  One of my favorite moments of the session was when his sister picked up a bird feather and was threatening to tickle him with it… his response?  “That has germs”!  Happy belated Mother’s Day to Heather, you’ve raised your kids right!

My other favorite moment from the session was at the very end, when this little guy asked me if I could take just one more picture — then he ran over to this tree and sat down!  His sister followed right behind and we got this cute shot!

P.S., if you recognize Heather from elsewhere on the website, it is because I photographed her twin sister back in February!

Mommy & Me with Jennifer | Houston Family Photographer

This is a second in a series of posts sharing the Mother’s Day mini sessions that I offered.

Jennifer and her daughter are so sweet together, and you can tell by watching them interact that there is so much love and such a wonderful closeness there.  Jennifer is a sort of mom role model for me — she works so hard and is successful, yet no one would ever, ever doubt that her family is her absolute top priority.  She is inspiring and I love watching her daughter grow!

Michele’s First Mother’s Day | Houston Family Photographer

This is the first in a series of three posts to share some Mother’s Day mini sessions!  The few days leading up to Saturday were wet, especially Friday, so the ground was a little muddy.  We made the best of it, though, and Saturday morning ended up being pretty beautiful!

Michele’s daughter is 9 months old and so adorable — she has two sweet little teeth that are in, and more on the way.  Because we had some stuff open up on our schedules, we hung around for a little longer than our planned 20 minutes, and I’m glad we did!
