Back in Houston!

Wow, a full two years later — I’m back! We moved back at the end of last year, and it’s taken me a while to get back into the swing of things on the photography front.  I’ve mainly photographed close friends and family (and, obviously, my own kids) over the last 8 months, but I’ve slowly started taking on clients again… Just in time for fall and family portraits. Let me know if you’d like to book a session this September through November.

In the meantime, here’s an end-of-summer photo I took recently of my own sweaty kids after a bit of running around at the park.

Waiting on Nolan | Houston Maternity Photographer

I had a great time with this expecting mom and her sister in Memorial Park earlier this fall — Daddy is serving our country and was overseas during our session, but we helped preserve some memories of Erin’s pregnancy for him, and I learned some fun tidbits in the process.  For example, have you heard of “smeyesing”?  These ladies helped me out with some new vocabulary 😉  Of course, if you follow me on Facebook, you may know that the sweet newborn boy who I recently photographed is the very Nolan that Erin was waiting on back in late September — and he is an amazing blessing.  But for now, here are some from Erin’s session!

The Sweetest Seven-Month-Old | Houston Baby Photographer

Miss A. was absolutely the sweetest seven-month-old.  Our session back in September was so much fun — it was the first day of fall, and the first day that it felt like it, too.  A gorgeous morning, gorgeous family, and gorgeous light made this a really laidback session, and through all of her outfit changes, this little one stayed so happy to be out at the park with her parents.

Nothing says the start of fall like some school spirit!

I’m slowly getting caught up on blogging this fall’s sessions!  While I am no longer booking sessions in 2013, I still have a lot to share!

The H Family | Houston Family Photographer

This is one of my favorite families — we’ve always been able to relate well with each other with our toddlers going through the same hilarious and exhausting personality developments — but I have to say, this was a tough session.  Not because of toddler craziness or even the heat, but the mosquitoes were completely, completely out of control.  Definitely the worst weekend we had all summer for mosquitoes, and the grassy Montrose-area park we had our session in was swarming with them.  This was in early August, and I still have the marks from the 30+ bites that I got (and that’s with bug spray).  One of the disadvantages of being the one behind the camera… no hands to swat away bugs!  Regardless, this family did a great job of brushing it off, and we got some adorable photos of their family of 3, plus baby on the way.

Thanks for looking!  I am booked for full sessions through the end of the year but there is still time to book a mini session on October 12th, details found here.

Stella is One! | Houston Child & Family Photographer

I really enjoyed spending time photographing this family in the Montrose area on Sunday.  Stella’s first birthday is coming up, so we took these photos to document the occasion and capture some of the cutest things about being 12 months old.  Just on the cusp of taking off running, this little girl was ready to roam once we got her started… until it hit her that it’s actually pretty hot outside, and after that she was content to be carried with her sippy cup!  It’s a fun but exhausting age, and I know her parents are so proud of their beautiful and playful daughter!
