Talk about a babe that started out high on the cute scale and just kept on climbing! It was SO fun to see #DevinTheDiva for her cake smash and first birthday portraits. Each cake smash session starts with a few images of just baby and I love the tangible memory of that toddler-cusp age.
Expecting twin boys, Mary visited for a slow paced, light and airy, and simply beautiful in-studio maternity session. I love the simplicity of the images and that in the crazy Texas heat, everyone stays cool and comfortable. The two cream dresses she’s wearing are part of the studio collection.
I really adore shooting in families homes – especially when they’re as beautiful as this one! Sarah has curated a fabulous mix of new and family hand-me-downs with glam and comfortable – which makes a perfect backdrop for meaningful and memorable photos.
Oh the heartache when dear friends move away — and the delight when they come back to visit. Caitlin and her crew recently relocated to Cali and stopped through San Antonio on their way to a destination wedding. While dad was in meetings, I practically begged Caitlin to come by the studio for some quick pictures of her and the boys. It’s hard to let go of a friend and muse, especially when you’ve shot just about every event thats happened in their lives since they’ve been in SA – but totally makes me cherish the time we spent together! Missing these guys like crazy…
I think we all too often forget that portrait sessions don’t have to be stuffy, formal or stressful. They can be delightful, too! Relaxed, barefoot, windblown and sun-kissed – some of my favorite things about shooting on the beach. There’s wind – we embrace it. There’s water – we play in it. There’s laughter and memories of moments well spent with the people you love – we capture it. The Majors family are not strangers to the beach – it’s practically a part of their family. It was a pleasure to capture three generations of beautiful women celebrating each other.
Visiting a family in the hospital is just about one of the biggest privileges I get. I simply love shooting a brand new family in the first days of their new-familyness. Babies don’t get much fresher than this!
A Fresh48 session happens in the first 48 hours after baby arrives in the hospital, birthing center, or if you have a home birth, at home. It’s designed to capture documentary style images of the very first moments you have together. I do not offer birth photography services but will happily recommend my favorites who do!
The beauty of the long hot season in Texas is that we can extend our beach vacations into late fall – which makes the beach a perfect place for family Christmas card pictures! The Mimari family knocked their family photos out of the way after a super relaxed extended-family shoot.
Combining a large casual shoot with their more ‘(beach) formal’ family session was a great way to capture family memories and moments on the beach. This would be a fantastic set up for a group of friends, family, or multiple families who would also like images as a group.
