Senior Pictures

Your high school senior year is a special one!  There are many demands on your time but there are also many special moments to cherish.  Having senior pictures made is one of those moments.  The senior portrait session is all about you!  I want to capture the real you so bring lots of outfits and props to your session.  Also, bring Mom or a friend to help out with styling!  Think both formal and casual for outfits.  Then bring props that tell your story – hobbies, sports, music, or whatever!  I always have so much fun with senior portrait sessions.  I’d love to capture you!

Olivia’s Senior Photoshoot

Olivia’s senior portrait session was a lot of fun!  We walked The Woodlands waterway with all of it’s scenery and texture.  Olivia brought several outfits, which, along with the backgrounds, gave us a lot of variety for her portfolio.  She is a beautiful girl inside and out.  Prepared and ahead of the game, she has already been accepted and chosen her college.  Olivia will be attending Texas State in the Fall.  With her college sign in hand, we got some playful shots as she prepares for the next phase of her life journey.  During her senior portrait session, we also got serious shots that I loved!  A final frame ended the evening where Olivia is walking next to some beautifully delicate grasses…hand extended in the grass and walking towards her next step on the journey.  For the journey is the reward.

Family Photography

Family photography is at the heart of my business.  It was my first photography love.  And I love it still to this day.  Family dynamics are like snowflakes, each one different and yet made up of the same stuff.  My job is to find those connections and sparkles that make your family so special.  After we get the posed photos of the family, everyone usually can relax and we get some fun playful photos.  Those moments in between are the jewels that make beautiful, true, real family photos.  I have one of those hanging on my staircase.  My photographer captured a beautiful moment when only Trevor was looking at the camera and the rest of us are cracking up laughing at what had just happened.  I don’t even remember what it was.  But it’s a beautiful memory.

Family Photos with the Heinrich Family

I last photographed the Heinrich family in 2009.  Mom and I were in the Moms Club together.  (By the way, that organization and our group saved my sanity many times over when the babies were babies!)  It was soooo good to see their whole family again and catch up.  It was just like old times just with bigger kids.  I could easily be silly with the kids.  Mom and Dad made faces behind me while I snapped the kids’ photos.  Then we had a tickle war at one point and sister was worried but we all had a good laugh.  I’m so grateful for friendship and for this beautiful family!

Family Memories

Annual family portraits are a great time to make family memories!  It’s time to be silly, have fun, and just be together.  Our lives are so busy these days that we don’t often stop to really spend time just being together.  We are running from soccer practice to choir practice and from school to work and home again.  When you’ve scheduled family portraits, take the opportunity to make a family memory.  I love it when families have their own traditions.  Bring a favorite game or song or pose to your family portrait session.  These will be the memories to cherish for years to come.  The kids will grow so fast that you’ll need this to remember just how little they were.

Family Portraits with The Moore Family

The Moore family has annual family portraits.  Now the family has grown with the addition of twin boys!  Mom was worried that the boys would be running in different directions for our session.  And they were running but we managed to slow them down for a few great family portraits!  In between the posed family shots, we let them run around and have fun being chased by Mom, Dad, and sister.  The smiles and laughter of these family memories will last forever.  All is well when you are wrapped in the safety of a big open field and the arms of your family.  Happy holidays to the Moore family and all those out there making family memories!

First Birthday Photos

Baby’s first birthday is an exciting celebration!  He is just beginning little bits of independence like walking and trying different foods.  Parents are seeing a glimpse of a little person developing instead of the baby that they have known for this past year.  Whether you’re celebrating with a full party or just family, baby’s first birthday is a milestone to document.  You’ll want to remember this age and stage – still tiny but growing so fast right before your eyes.  Hire a professional photographer to capture baby and the family so you can hold onto these memories.  Years from now (maybe when he’s grown), he will thank you for making him feel so special and loved.

First Birthday Photoshoot with Trystyn

Oh my, the cuteness!  Trystyn’s first birthday photos were an absolute blast to photograph!  I told his Moms that we would have access to a tiny John Deere tractor for the photoshoot.  Trystyn came dressed in tiny Wrangler jeans, button-down shirt, belt, cowboy boots, and cowboy hat.  Perfection!  In one of the images, it actually looks like Trystyn is fixing his tractor.  He had a great time playing with it too.  He was all smiles and clapping for our photos!  Trystyn was ready for everything from the tractor to the fire engine to the airplane.  They all needed to be fixed and he could play with them while I photographed him.  Let’s do that again sometime, buddy!

National Charity League

National Charity League, Inc. (NCL, Inc.) is a non-profit national organization of mother and daughter members in Chapters across the United States. A group of women founded the organization in 1925 when National Charity League was established in Los Angeles. They supported the American Red Cross by making layettes and assembling food baskets for the hungry during the holidays. The women engaged their daughters and by 1938, the daughters formed their own group.  In 1947, all groups united to become the nation’s first mother-daughter charity. National Charity League expanded its program beyond philanthropic work to include educational and cultural activities. National Charity League was reorganized and incorporated in 1958 to become National Charity League, Inc.

NCL Champions

This will be the third year for me to photograph the NCL Champions chapter.  I am so honored to get to know these seniors and their moms.  They have worked hard for many years leading up to this Senior Recognition program.  In the Fall, we photograph the seniors for their individual portrait and we also photograph the mother-daughter portrait for the program.  In January at the Senior Recognition program, all seniors and mothers will be recognized for their contributions and dedication to the organization and to their communities.  The program is a wonderful evening of food, dancing, and sometimes a few tears.  I wish all my best to the NCL Champions seniors of 2018.
