jill & jason – thank you so much for having me over to your home to celebrate will turning ONE! loved every second of it!

introducing the cranks. houston wedding photographers

all the way from illinois. houston lifestyle + family photographer

i got to meet this precious family back in april when they came in town to visit. they booked a session & came back again a couple months later for father’s day & we met again for their shoot. it felt like 5 minutes had gone by since i met them (not almost 2 months!). i was so thrilled that they let their kids be kids…they ran around & played, had fun & were silly! that’s the best way to be! i had so much fun following them around. what a beautiful & close family. thank you so much for inviting me into your home:)xoxo

Ramona Thompson - Beautiful Kelly! Thank you so much! We’re looking forward to seeing the rest!

Alexis - Beautiful! I love all of the emotions, the colors, the different lighting. Gorgeous set:)

Kellie Penn - These are gorgeous!!!!! My favorite is the boy zooming on the car! Too fun!

mine – miles at three months. personal pics

so…my miles is 3 months…already. i didn’t take very much time to edit these. i have client photos to edit afterall & those are most important! but i did do a quick little edit so i could post these or i never would get to it! thanks for checking out pictures of my little guy. he is sweet, charming, smiley, happy, snuggly. i look forward to working a teeny bit less in july so i can enjoy him more! i am going to try to be diligent about taking pictures at 3, 6, 9, & 12 months. i didn’t do that with garrett & they change so much! i took the opportunity to take some of garrett, too. my good friend, jenn cusimano, let me use her gorgeous studio for these pictures. thank you thank you thank you, jenn!

Richelle Ziebarth - LOVE the one of the 3 of ya’ll smiling! So perfect!!
