Welcome to t.h.e. Blog
This is where I feature some of my latest work, photography tips, and just fun happenings with my family. I invite you to enjoy flipping through some of my posts!
When I first spoke with Sara and Jordan I had a good feeling about their engagement session and the vision we discussed. Then, when they got out of their car the afternoon of their session I knew that this was going to be epic.
I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family around the holidays. I have been friends of the mom for many years.
Since I focus on in-home lifestyle newborn sessions, I met them at their home.
I’ve known this gorgeous mom for….. let’s just leave it at years. Many, many years. She has a beautiful family, as you can see. I always like to meet new people and get to know them, but reconnecting with someone you used to see daily and knows you so well is fun.
We met at Riverside Park in Victoria, Texas. …….
It has been a while since I have shared a photo tip. I have been wanting to get back to it. So when I started putting this together, I really thought, how the heck do I make a blog post out of this? It is simple. Let your kids play. What else is there to say?
When I got the call that this gorgeous family was coming in town and they wanted to fit in a family session I was pumped. We have said for a while that we wanted to do this, but never had gotten the opportunity.
Let me introduce some very dear friends. It was an absolute pleasure photographing their family, and as you can tell I had a hard time narrowing down the photos to show.
When Drey and Andrea asked me to photograph their wedding, I was so excited. When they told me the date was six weeks away, I was in shock. How they heck were they going to pull that off?
Imagine my surprise when I show up to the North Caroline house Drey grew up in and the backyard is transformed into a whimsical wedding venue.
As a photographer and business owner, I love supporting other small business owners. So when I was able to photograph Leeco Honey I was giddy with excitement.
I am so excited to share these images with them, and help them as they grow this beautiful company and brand.
A little about the process……
When I met this beautiful couple for their pre-session consult, we spent over an hour just chit-chatting. LOL. I think we talked business for ten minutes before we left the coffee shop. The kind of clients that you know your going to have a special experience with.
It is always special to be asked to capture family moments and milestones as a photographer. This one though, wow, it was a big one. When Mike told me he wanted to surprise his girlfriend with a gifted session for her birthday, it was sweet. When he then proceeded to tell me he wanted to propose to her, and her daughters at the end of the session I was blown away.
I actually like the fact that the oldest daughter was not having it until she warmed up to me, which was at our second location. All while baby sister, was all about showing off her newly formed teeth and happy to take a few steps for the camera with dad’s assistance.
I am very excited to announce that THE Photography is heading to Houston………..
In home, lifestyle newborn sessions are just the sweetest things. I fall in love with the candidness of them and how they just capture the pulse of a family at such a beautiful time in their family’s story.
Wow, so this session has got some traction in the little bit that’s been shared, so I thought I'd get the blog post done so you guys could see a bit more from the session.
I will be honest, you mix kids and horses and it can be crazy. In addition it was summer in Texas out at Grace Ranch. I think there was an adult per kid and extra helpers that made this session possible and I think we all got some chuckles out of the situation.
When you are a lifestyle photographer, you have to have a healthy respect for rain. I'm all for doing a rainy session, as long as it isn't a downpour. I actually think it can add a fun element to the portraits!
That's right. I went there. If you have ever had a portrait session with me, you know that I tend to avoid using my flash. I try as much as possible to use natural light. There are several reasons for this, the most important one for me, people just look better in natural light.
You've had your family portrait session, now what? The options out there seem overwhelming when it comes to portrait products. You want your digitals. Yes, but what about enjoying those images?
I have a few favorite ways I like to enjoy my family portraits.
