“I really saw clearly, and for the first time, why a mother is really important. Not just because she feeds and also loves and cuddles and even mollycoddles a child, but because in an interesting and maybe an eerie and unworldly way, she stands in the gap. She stands between the unknown and the known.” Maya Angelou
Back to school flew by like a thousand race cars this year — is it too soon after the END of school to post these? Are lost lunchboxes and stinky backpacks and ‘take home folders’ still too fresh on the brain? I love Back to School Short Sessions … it’s so fun to see the kids gearing up for activities, the excitement for the new grade level and the anticipation… Keep Reading
Maggie’s mama is one of my dear friends – who happens to live in Houston. When she proposed a day-trip visit for some 6 month-ish portraits of her sweet babe, I was ALL IN.
Shooting at Walker Ranch is one of my favorite locations. There are so many nooks and crannies to stop in and the sunlight that pours in late afternoon in the fall months is just dreamy. Sometimes I feel like I’ve left San Antonio – even though the Wurzbach Parkway traffic reminds me we haven’t! Believe it or not, fall family sessions start booking in August as Fall scheduled start… Keep Reading
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… Keep Reading
If you haven’t been following this nugget since his maternity session (or his mom’s maternity session, really…) you’ll want to take a second to go back and check them all out. Because he’s the CUTEST and his first birthday cake smash was no exception!
It’s Monday – and in a few weeks Monday morning will mean backpacks, finding school shoes and packing lunches — which means that it’s time for Back to School pictures! The backdrop is (as always!) going ot be amazing and I’ll post sneak peeks of it as soon as Maria (our amazing set designer) is finished. It will be an ARG take on a classic school theme and incorporate navy,… Keep Reading
I can’t remember a summer my family didn’t spend time in Port Aransas – the docks, the boats, the beach – all fill my memories of summer as a child. Let’s stop time this summer, just for a little bit, and capture your family sun-kissed and relaxed in the sand, on the docks or near a pier in Port Aransas. I’ll be offering 30 minute mini family sessions throughout the… Keep Reading
(This image has nothing to do with the casting calls below – I just really love it.) I have some fun projects coming up and I’m looking for some willing participants! 1. A set of twins or triplets (no gender or identicalness requirements) 11-14 months old for a cake smash to shoot in late April or early May. 2. A high school aged ballerina who dances en pointe to shoot in… Keep Reading
My creative and talented friend Annmarie challenged some photographer friends to a ‘thrift store challenge’ to shake up our shooting routines this winter. We had about 3 months and $20 to develop a shoot. As usual, I waited for inspiration and inspiration didn’t strike until about a week ago! I was shopping at a consignment type sale for a prop rental company in town and there was this beauty. Well… Keep Reading
