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 […]

The sun on my face, the sand in my toes, makes any day a delight. Hunting for seashells, and surfing the waves, makes everything seem alright. Building a castle, fit for a king, makes all my dreams within reach. Wearing my shades and getting a tan, makes a great day at the Beach. The threat […]
The anticipation of waiting for baby is unlike any other event, I think. 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. Landa Library is probably one of my favorite locations […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
