Thankful in November

Montgomery, TX Family Photographer

Late last night I sent out a gallery that I just adore. The tones, the beautiful people, and the obvious love is fantastic! Even better, their oldest gave me at least 5 hugs. She even told me she loved me!

We started our session with my usual Christmas card photos for Grandma, and ended with a little fun! I had their little girl near the barn when I heard Dad calling my name and and running through the fields. The kids started running full speed after whatever it was in his hand. Oh, the giggles that followed!  I had no idea what was actually going on, I just kept doing my thing and taking pictures of it all. It was adorable!  And then, he stopped. Do you know what he had in his hands?  There’s definitely a first for everything! I’ve had horses and now…. {Hint: It’s the last two photographs!}

A FROG!! Ewwww! I got the shot and ran!  Absolutely gorgeous family, aren’t they?  I seriously have looked at their gallery a few times, just swooning over their family photos! But, there is more to it than that. You see, this family was truly one of the first to make me feel like I had clients who supported me! First, she referred me to her sister and I got to photograph her beautiful baby boy! Since then, I have heard from 2 more mamas that heard about me from her!

Thankful in November

They say that a business like photography is spread by word of mouth. For those who know me, I tend to be a pretty quiet person! A successful small business depends on a strong network of friends and clients to spread the word. I seriously questioned whether or not I could be successful because I really tend to be introverted! I have to say that I have the BEST clients and friends. You guys have seriously helped my business spread like wildfire. Nearly 100% of my clients have been referred by friends and family! That is amazing y’all!

It’s time to say THANK YOU! (Did you start singing Maui’s song like I did?) For everyone who has shared a post, commented, or told your friends, thank you! Thank you to everyone who has recommended me to other people. Thank you to those who have linked my website or Facebook page back when you post your pictures. You are all incredible and have helped my business grow!

Most of you know by now that I am a boy mama. In my house, there are tons of toy cars, trains, camo, and outdoor equipment. There is not one single floral romper, dress,  bow, or girly swaddle. I love dressing up my boys and making them look trendy. There’s just nothing like a good dress and bow combo! I had so much fun shopping for her!  I will admit that if I was a girl mama, we would be broke because I would have ten thousand bows!

Lifestyle Newborn Photography

This family was the perfect lifestyle newborn session. They have a sweet 21 month old and a new baby girl. We focused on family portraits in their master bedroom. Their beautiful pink nursery was another perfect room to showcase their new love! We work so hard on those nurseries! Lifestyle portraits are a great time to show them off!

Fall Family Portraits

Fall Family Portraits

It’s that time of year! Fall is here and its time to update those family portraits! Fall family portraits have been at the top of my to-do list every year, but this year is extra special. I am thrilled to be on the other side of the lens, capturing your families!

Remember the winners of my giveaway? Here they are! I am so glad I had the opportunity capture these fall family portraits! This family is just so special, and so sweet! I first met this mama 9 years ago when we walked into a brand new elementary school as first year teachers! My how life has changed since then! Now, this mama has to beautiful babies and a super sweet husband.

This shot reminds me of my own world right now. Our children are about the same age and its always man-to-man defense as my husband calls it! Zone just doesn’t work out in our favor! 😉

Can you tell who stole the show? She loved every second of the spot light and I think baby brother was happy to let her have it! He might have been getting some teeth because those fingers were extra yummy! Both of their kiddos are absolutely gorgeous aren’t they?

 

Tomball, Tx: A New Location for Fall Family Portraits

I brought this family to a new location in Tomball with adorable opportunities for photographs and beautiful light! It is the perfect spot for all of my friends in the Cypress and Tomball areas to have their portraits updated! It is heavily wooded, but has older buildings, benches, and a barn to check out as well! If you’re looking for a photographer in the Cypress or Tomball area, I’d love to go back here!

This is a park that is fantastic for little ones. It gives them the ability to explore and change their scenery as we shoot. Get it touch with me at here to book a session! Investments begin at $250.

Toddlers & Family Photography

Toddlers & Family Photography

A Lifestyle Portrait Session

Hey y’all! I’m so excited to share this family on my blog this morning! This sweet girl is so loved and it just radiates through their whole portrait session!

Toddlers & family photography are my two of my favorite things! Toddlers know how to have a good time! They teach us not to take life too seriously, to dance when you can, and to take time to stop and observe!

“Every child needs at least one adult who is irrationally crazy about him or her.”-U. Bronfenbrenner

Cypress Family Photography

This sweet girl totally lived up to all of these things, but my favorite was the dancing. I have yet to meet a toddler that can resist the Mickey Mouse “Hot Dog” dance! Just check out the moves on this girl!

Toddlers & Their Comfort Item

Several months ago, before I even opened my business, I told this mama that I think babies/toddlers and their lovies are adorable! It’s such a short phase of life that definitely needs to be documented! When she asked me about a family session, I asked her to bring the lovey! I don’t use a lot of actual props in photography, but a lovey is so symbolic of this age. (If your kiddo has one, they’re a must in your session!)

This session will go down as one of my favorites forever! I always tell my clients that my goal is for everyone to relax and have fun! Ms. A made SURE that happened. There was reading, dancing, running, and playing! All of the things toddlers love to do!

Enjoy your photos O family! I hope you love them and can’t wait to see what you do with your prints! They’re going to be gorgeous on your walls!

Lifestyle Family Sessions

It’s August and that means Back to School time! This time of year is so bitter-sweet for me. I’m used to the hustle and bustle of teacher meetings, hanging bulletin boards, planning lessons, and getting ready for a fresh set of kids. This will be my third year out of the classroom.  It still hasn’t sunk in yet that I’m no longer teaching!  I taught first, fourth, and reading intervention in my education journey. In my classroom, I always planned lessons around high levels of learning and engagement. The same is true for my lifestyle family sessions!

Lifestyle Family Sessions: Goals

I have three goals for my families.

  1. Provide high quality heirloom photographs.
  2. Engage the whole family in FUN activities! (Yes, even Dad!)
  3. Capture authentic emotions.

So, what might that look like?  I try to provide each family with a gallery that has a wide variety of family interactions from cheery and fun to the more emotive images that make your heart sing! I create activities and moments that engage the whole family! When everyone is having fun, the magic starts to unfold naturally! Each session will vary in activities, but here are a few things that we might do!

Lifestyle Family Sessions: Gallery Sneak Peek

How about a little limbo action?

Lifestyle Family Limbo

Picking flowers is also a favorite of mine when we can find them! These yellow flowers happened to look amazing with their color combos!

While mom and big sisters were out picking flowers, I turned around to see baby brother and Dad just laughing at each other! I love how the sweetest moments happen naturally!

Family sneak

This family totally rocked their session with me! I just love them and their gorgeous kids! They sadly had to reschedule after it stormed on their original date, but this worked out perfectly! It just happened to be a little cooler with some magical golden light at their session!  I’m excited for them to go through their gallery and see all of their photos! My sessions are fun, but seeing the results is the best part!

Get in there!

Did anyone else start singing “Yah,Yah” when you read the title? Don’t let me be the only one!

Since my littlest was born, I have made it my mission to get in the frame with him at least once a month. When my boys grow up, I want them to have oodles of pictures of their family. I want them to be able to look at a photograph and feel the love we have for  them, see the fun we had together, or remember the adventures we have been on. Those memories will be there for them forever! {That’s also why I insist on printing our pictures! I’ve been working on how to save all of our photographs, but more on that another time!}

The Beauty of the Self Timer

Moms, get in there! Give your kids the gift of memories and try a self portrait! Break out your phone and balance it on your dresser with some books. Then, set your self timer and RUN! That’ll make your kids laugh, too! Today, I challenge you to get in the frame with your kids! They need memories of you, too! I am always the one behind the camera, (like most moms!) so lately, I really have put in more effort to make self-portraits a thing for us!

This weekend, I had my hair highlighted for the first time since my wedding! I was bored and needed a change!  I got to visit with my gorgeous friend, Erykca, for three hours while she made my hair beautiful again! Let’s be honest, as a stay at home mom, my hair is rarely done and I wear makeup like once a month. Occasions like that just have to be documented so I pulled out my tripod and set the interval timer. My favorite thing about the interval timer on my camera is the bloopers that are always hilarious! {You have to read to the end for the blooper goodness!}

Lifestyle Moms

Tips for toddlers

Bribery! I’m all about the bribery! My toddler has suckers in a lot of his pictures and there is totally a reason for that! He has his own opinions about how things should go. Those opinions are usually the opposite of mine and this where the sucker comes in handy.  (Pray for me, y’all! When he’s a teenager… good gravy!) Usually, I can distract him just long enough to get the shot I’m looking for and move on. This was not that day! {Keep scrolling!}

Some days, I don’t even need bribes– just some tickling, tossing in the air, and snuggles will do just fine! Toddlers make like fun.  It’s always best to be prepared for everything because you never know who gave them the wrong color popsicle that morning!

Tips for Preschoolers and Bigger Kiddos

Engage in conversation! Have them tell you a story, show you silly faces, etc. What makes them laugh?  Think about what you want to remember most about this age. Does your daughter say a word in a silly way? Do you love to twirl her curls? Figure out what it is that you want to remember most and recreate that during your little mini-shoot! Those little moments are the ones you will want to treasure forever!

Moms, my challenge for you is to just GET IN THERE! I know that you and your kiddo will both look back on these moments with a grateful heart! 

And now, for the bloopers. These are the BEST part! I told you, an interval timer is a fantastic thing!
