I'm excited to finally share these bridals. I needed to wait until the wedding was over. Katie and her groom got married a few weeks ago in a beautiful ceremony out in East Columbia. These bridals were taken at Varner Hogg in West Columbia, TX. It was just a perfect day with a radiant bride!
I live in Lake Jackson, which is really only about 15 miles at the most from where this beautiful family lives. But it feels like a different world. Here in Lake Jackson, we can't have ANY kind of livestock. So even though I'm just a few miles away from folks who have lots of livestock, I rarely actually see or photograph any.
Anyway, this was a treat for me. I really wanted to hop on that beautiful horse, but he quickly would have realized that I had no idea what I was doing! His little owner is practically a pro. She just hops on him bareback. :-)
Okay, here are more of these super fun maternity photos, as promised. These guys are just so cool to work with. I can't wait for Miss Emma's newborn photos!! They're going to be epic. :-)
Oh my gosh...I love these!!! I'm not quite ready to make a full blog post yet, but I couldn't wait to share these. I can't wait to meet this baby!!!
If I loved my job any more than I do, I might just explode. I pinch myself all the time. Working with this family and working on these photos was no exception. Just so much beauty and love.
This little guy is just so sweet. I loved getting to hang out with him and his parents. And his mom has super great decorating tastes! Their house was just the perfect place for his newborn photos. I know that Abe's parents are going to be fantastic at this whole parenting thing. Thankfully his daddy knows just how to sing him to sleep. <3
This was such a lovely wedding and an absolutely stunning couple. It was an honor to be able to capture this perfect day.
Yes, I'm behind on blogging. I know. But I am still taking photos, just in case you were wondering. I met up with these cuties a couple of weeks ago. These grown sisters wanted to give their daddy a photo session. Such a great gift! The expressions on this baby just crack me up.
These might just be my most favorite family photos that I've ever taken. Seriously. The colors, the light, the beautiful faces... And yes, I know there are more of the little guy than his brother and sister. I usually try to keep things fair around here, but I know that since he's child number three, there might not be as many photos of him. Plus, I just couldn't help myself.
This sweet momma is the director of the preschool that my kids attended. She has poured so much of her time into my three youngest kids, I just can't even tell you. It takes a village and she's been part of mine. What an honor to know them and capture these photos for them!
This is Jack's second session in his baby plan.* He and his sister are both little cutie pies! And their parents are just about the most relaxed parents I've ever worked with. So refreshing!! I'm looking forward to capturing this little guy as he learns to walk. Maybe the next session...so exciting! Thank you guys for allowing me the opportunity to watch your little ones grow.
*If you're interested in purchasing a baby plan for yourself or a loved one, shoot me an email and I'll get you the details. It's a good deal.
These two are stinking cute, as you can plainly see. I'm very excited about shooting their upcoming wedding. It can't help but be anything but adorable. Congratulations, Lauren and Jeremy!! You two are precious.
Send me a message to book your holiday mini session. One day only. Limited spots.
This wonderful family lives right across the street from us! They help us populate our street with lots of kids. There are times when there are 13 or more kids playing outside on our street at the same time. It's been an honor and privilege to live near these guys and call them friends. Here's to many more years of sitting in lawn chairs in your driveway, yelling "CAR!!" every few minutes. :-)
Such a beautiful day, full of beautiful people! It was such an honor to capture this day for Michael and Christina. May you live happily ever after...
I had so much fun on this session. I love being around families who truly enjoy each other. And as a mom of young kids, it does my heart so good and fills me with so much hope, to be around families with older children who are such good friends! Thank you guys for making me smile so much that my face hurt.
I have no doubt that this handsome young man will excel at life, just as he's done with school. (Because school isn't real life, you know.) Whichever University John decides to go to will be lucky to have him. I sensed a very wise and gentle "old soul" in him. Seriously, just look at those eyes. The top most black and white photo is my absolute favorite of the session. John, I'll look forward to hearing, through the grapevine, of the many outstanding things you continue to do!
These little ones grew up a bit over the last few years...
And they gained a precious little brother. Amiee and Jason, you guys make beautiful babies!
Since I posted the photos from Alex and Caleb's wedding, I feel like it's only right that I post Alex's stunning bridal portraits. She's so flippin' cute! Enjoy.
These two cuties tied the knot back in July. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful. They have such an amazing crowd of people who love them. It was such an honor to photograph their day and tell the story of it in photographs.
May they live happily ever after. <3
