trio. houston child photographer

I have been taking their pictures for a couple of years now and have grown so attached to them. I can’t believe it’s been that long…time flies. Gavin was just a baby when I first met him and now he’s a big brother. I haven’t seen Vivi since her newborn session. I was so excited to see her again many months older. And now Ava is so grown up that she was telling me my jokes weren’t funny and I’d have to try harder – haha! I always love my time with this trio. Darin thank you for holding down the fort while Stephanie was sick and for being so helpful. I hope you feel all back to normal Stephanie! Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to work with all of you. I always look forward to it!Untitled-1



Like Peas & Carrots. Houston Wedding Photographer

These two go together like peas and carrots…well no, I can do way better than that because peas & carrots are kind of gross really;)And these two deserve a more special comparison – I’ll try harder, hehe….they go together more like peanut butter & jelly, or macaroni & cheese, or milk & cookies, or salt & pepper, or bread & butter:)Okay, okay you get it. Basically these two were destined to be together. The stars have aligned! All is right in the world!

I am feeling guilty that these pictures haven’t been posted sooner than this. I feel so personally connected to these two that I have just been reminiscing about the night through Facebook messaging with them and everytime I see a picture I want them to see I send it to them. I know the rest of you want to see them, too, though – I got so wrapped up in going straight to them that I was slow to post a sneak peek for all to see. Sorry!

Look close when you see these pictures. I know they are small because they are just a preview but if you look close at the looks on Art & Laura’s faces as they look into each other’s eyes it melts my heart. If that’s not true love then I don’t know what is.
Laura + Art, I wish you a lifetime full of happiness, love, laughter and babies…and lots of Aunt Kelly in your life;)

I love you two more than you know and am ecstatic you have each other forever. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for asking me to photograph your big day. I appreciate you wanting me to be right your side and I loved every second of it. CONGRATULATIONS!

Fields of Flowers. Houston Family Photographer

It’s bluebonnet time in Texas! I brought one of the sweetest families I know to the park to take advantage of the flowers while they are still here. We had so much fun playing in the fields! I just love those kids. I am excited every time I hear from them saying they are ready for more pictures.bluebonnetsSandra and Lamont – Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful family with me for the evening and for giving me the opportunity to work with you again.

Roman. Houston Family Session

This family is so special to me! And if you follow this blog you will have seen them on here several times over & over since Roman was born almost two years ago! I am so lucky I get to call them friends and so fortunate to also be their photographer. xoxo
