little catherine – you are so precious & beautiful! you were so alert at your session & showed us your pretty eyes! after food poisoning & having a whole family sick this week i took longer than usual on your pictures. your parents were SO patient! give them a hug for me! i am going to make this short because i have a full gallery to load & i’m sure you are excited to see it! xoxo
here we are… a little more than a year later than the last donut session & i still love this family & i still have a blast with them & they still got donuts for being super star picture takerschristopher, andrew & emily are hilarious. we had so much fun playing with fart machines & blaming it on innocent passerbys (namely their dad) hehe. And they invited me to jump on their trampoline which was really fun…even with a camera in my hand! I could have stayed all day!Thank you thank you for coming back to me for your pictures this year…you know how much I love you guys (I hope!) but I have to say it again here anyway to reiterate just how awesome I think yall are!
sweet izzy. i have had the privilege of photographing her & her family SEVEN times. i am so so lucky. words can’t express how much i love this family! they are funny, cute, loving & awesome….they keep me laughing the whole time (i’m not kidding!) & somehow they ALWAYS make me feel like i am actually a part of the family when we’re together!they have beautiful spirits & huge hearts.
becky & jacob: you have no idea how much your support & loyalty mean to me! i love the time i have with your family & it doesn’t feel like work at all…just pure fun. i love the age that izzy is right now…i felt like her & i are little buddies now! i even know all about her boyfriends & stuff
so first we took a trip to old katy for some casual portraits…then loaded up to head back to the house for some baking & book reading!
i am so happy we did this lifestyle portion at your home. i loved the little glimpse into your day to day life & had a smile on my face the whole time i was shooting! i was seriously cracking up because you guys are so awesome…i LOVED the lessons about real vanilla vs imitation & the “secret ingredient” LOVE. precious! i wish i had video of that segment so izzy could look back & see how awesome her parents are/were! i feel like the pictures tell such a story & i love that.
i love & appreciate when my clients come back to me! it means so much to me. i love getting to know families & watching them grow. i photographed this little peanut when he was about a week old & now he is ONE! i just love neil. he is sooo bubbly & full of personality. he is calm, happy & easy going….i know where he gets it from (those awesome parents of his)! neil, i will never forget how you DEVOURED that cupcake. it was incredible! you are officially the champion & consider that a huge title coming from someone who has has lots of experience watching one year olds eating cake! it was hilarious. you are AWESOME! (high fives).
happy birthday buddy! and audrey & mike – THANK YOU THANK YOU…SO good to see you again. xo
happy 1st birthday little buddy! i loved taking your pictures. you had my heart from the start – with that pretty smile & those sparkly eyes…you have quite the personality! i liked when you gave me hugs in order to try to get close to my camera…maybe you’ll be a photographer one day! you got to eat a homemade cake, made with love by your mommy just for you! we went to the park (times two) & then went back to your house to play. that was yesterday. today is your real birthday. your momma said the party was FANTASTIC! i bet it was! call me tomorrow to tell me all about it, ok grant!?
