Algonquin Newborn Photography - Baby Aiden

This session was extra special for me - this is my nephew! I was able to spend some time in Illinois to be there for Aiden's arrival and to welcome him into our family. I will forever cherish these photos, as well as the experience of witnessing him in his first days of life, and my sister and brother-in-law as new parents. I love that I was able to be his newborn photographer! I might be biased but I think he is just the cutest squishy newborn baby. He has the best pouty baby lips!

I love the sentimental element of this photo. These are his dad's bears from childhood, and mom's blanket when she came home from the hospital.

Houston Anniversary Photo Session - Jennifer + Michael

Houston Anniversary Photo Session - Jennifer + Michael

I was so excited when Jennifer contacted me about doing an anniversary session for her and her husband, Michael! These high school sweethearts met on Myspace eleven years ago and have been together ever since. We incorporated a love letter into the session with Jennifer's heartfelt words beautifully calligraphed by Kim of Joyful Ink Calligraphy. This added such a sweet, sentimental touch to the session. Jennifer and Michael kept each other laughing for the rest of the session, and their laughter was so contagious. I had such a great time with them, and their adorable dogs too! Jennifer is also a photographer in Houston. Check out her work! It is always such an honor to photograph other photographers. Here are my favorite images from their session.

I absolutely loved everything about this session! I had the best time taking photos of Kim and Jason. Not only are they ridiculously good looking, but such pretty people on the inside as well. They are both so kind and down to earth, our session was so lighthearted and fun. I really enjoyed spending time in their company. It was really touching to see how much they adore one another, and what a strong connection they have. Kim's gorgeous calligraphy love letters, their adorable outfits, and their undeniable chemistry made for an incredible shoot!

I had the best time photographing this sweet family during a recent trip to Illinois! I grew up with Dawn and went to high school with both Dawn and Kyle, so it was great to catch up and to see them as parents. Their daughter Grace is adorable and so full of personality! She is such a Daddy's girl and absolutely adores Kyle. It was really sweet to witness such special moments between them. It was so evident from a small glimpse into their lives just how much this family is overflowing with love and joy. It was such an honor to document this stage of their lives. I had way too many favorite images from this session, it was hard narrowing them down for this post!

I loved spending a recent morning photographing this beautiful family! We ended up having to reschedule several times due to all of the rain Houston has been having this season, but it ended up working in our favor because we lucked out with such beautiful sunshine on the morning of our session. Sirynda and Jeremy recently celebrated their 5th anniversary, and this was the perfect time to document their family at this stage of their lives. These sweet sisters had me smiling for our entire session, and long after. I can still hear the sounds of their giggles. I hope these photos bring a smile to your face as well!

This baby boy couldn't wait to arrive and decided to come early! This family was in the process of moving into their new home, so we decided it would be best to split their session up into two parts in order to be able to get both some posed sleeping shots of baby Nyle while he was still fresh and new, and some lifestyle images of the whole family once they settled in to their new space. I loved being able to document this special season of change for this growing family. It was interesting to see how much Nyle grew and changed in the few weeks between our shoots. Here are a few of my favorite images from their sessions.

I loved spending a recent morning photographing these adorable brothers. Baby Thomas was a perfect, easy baby - a typical 2nd child. He was so relaxed and observant, I'm happy we were able to capture some shots of his beautiful blue eyes. During feeding breaks I had so much fun hanging out with big brother and enjoyed watching him light up as he picked out his favorite one of my blankets to use (good call with the furry white one) and told me all about some of his favorite things - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the color green. It was a privilege to share a few glimpses into their lives at this moment. Here are a few of my favorite images from the session.

Houston White Horse Bridals - Jaclyn

I've been anxiously waiting to post these images as this shoot was definitely one of my favorites! Jaclyn got married in Hawaii this past weekend so it is now safe to share her bridal portraits. Isn't her gown absolutely stunning? For part of the shoot, Jaclyn changed into the dress her mother wore for her own wedding, which was in Hawaii as well. I thought this was so precious and sentimental. And that beautiful flower crown? Jaclyn made it herself! This girl is beautiful, talented, and so very sweet. She is one of those people who always seems to exude inner joy and radiate positive energy to those in her company. 

Congratulations Jaclyn and Rob! Wishing you much love and happiness.
