The Hudak Family | San Antonio Family Portraits

My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.

– Ernest Hemingway

A picture is worth a thousand words – and I love when I can show a family in their best and simplest way. The Hudaks are a beautiful family with a fierce love for each other. Not even the humidity and crazy rabid mosquitos could keep them from enjoying each other during their session.

Cibolo Creek Maternity Session | Boerne, Texas

It’s a treat to get to shoot for old friends –  and when Julie returned for her second round of maternity portraits for baby #2, I was no less thrilled to shoot for her this time than I was the first. When we were brainstorming session locations, we kept coming back to water – and I knew we were in for an adventure and an amazing shoot.

This old Girl Scout classic was stuck in my head the entire session:

Peace I ask of the, oh River

Peace, peace, peace….

Cares will cease. Cibilo Creek Maternity Pictures | San Antonio Texas

Strength to lead and faith to follow,

All are given unto me.

Going Costal | Port Aransas Family Portraits

VornsandFamBeach-31 The sun on my face,
the sand in my toes,
makes any day a delight.
VornsandFamBeach-28 Hunting for seashells,
and surfing the waves,
makes everything seem alright.

VornsandFamBeach-16 Building a castle,
fit for a king,
makes all my dreams within reach.
VornsandFamBeach-13 Wearing my shades
and getting a tan,
makes a great day at the Beach. VornsandFamBeach-22_1

The threat of rain made us a little nervous – and the gray skies weren’t what I’d wish for… but the bright green in the dunes and the big piece of driftwood (a treat on our beaches!) made up for it!

Waiting for Gemma | Maternity Session

The anticipation of waiting for baby is unlike any other event, I think.

San Antonio Maternity Portraits Session at Landa Library

Name chosen, nursery complete, plans made… and then the wait. Sometimes long and drawn out and sometimes shorter than expected but always on baby’s schedule. Always different and with a unique story attached.

San Antonio Maternity Portraits Session at Landa Library

Landa Library is probably one of my favorite locations to shoot at (even if it is a bajillion degrees outside) because it’s always the same yet always different. I feel like I discover it for the first time, every time I visit.

The combination of garden, green space and the beautiful building gives us so many combinations to explore.

San Antonio Maternity Portraits Session at Landa Library

While shooting on the library property, we spotted this empty lot and spontaneously tromped through the overgrown lot to take advantage of the light. It’s a treasure – light like this in the middle of the morning.

I love that it feels like we were 100 miles away from anyone else – and we just crossed the street.

Can’t wait to share baby Gemma’s newborn session!

Baby Sessily | San Antonio Newborn Portraits

If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.
Vincent Van Gogh

Devin’s Cake Smash

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.  Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash Pink and Turquoise Cake Smash | San Antonio Cake Smash
