…How Sweet the Sound
I have a confession to make. At the beginning of the year, I was very hesitant to start shooting Senior portraits because I felt so out of touch with that age demographic. I’m a mom of babies, and my oldest niece and nephew are ten years old. The direct exposure that I have of the whole teen age group gets skipped right over to college aged young adults and newly engaged couples, and then into families with young kiddos. I believed the sterotypes that are out there about “tod
My Sister Has an Awesome Sister
The last morning session of spring mini day was reserved for the Kiser sisters. Ava and Indie are the crazy gorgeous daughters of my sister’s childhood friend Jenae. She and her husband, Preston were high school sweethearts and are now trying to keep up with these two little lovebugs. I’ve known Jenae since she was in about 7th grade, and I would get into epic battles with Courtney (my little sis) because the two of them would go through my closet when I wasn’t around. These
Mommy & Me - Thirteen Years in the Making
The very first session of the spring minis was a Mommy and Me shoot for Melanie and Addison. A couple weeks before the session, Melanie and I talked about themes and props and the location and the predicted weather…you know, usual photo shoot stuff. When these gorgeous girls showed up dressed up and fancy, you know what Addison saw? A big patch of grass to run around and a few things to climb on and jump off of. She had zero concerns about what we had “planned” for the shoot.
This Princess is Guarded by a Big Brother
This bright eyed boy is going to be a big brother to a sweet baby girl in April…unless she decides to make her entrance sooner, like mom is predicting. The Muhlbeiers booked the first spot in my Spring mini’s, so I’ve been looking forward to their session for a long time, and Dalton, Amanda, and Knox did not disappoint. It took Knox only a few minutes to warm up, and I’m sure it had nothing to do with my sister trading Smarties for big smiles. He was the absolute sweetest. He
361 days as a family of 5
Everyone says that the first year flies by. I couldn’t agree with this more. During our babies’ first years, we’re consumed with feedings, weight gain, counting diapers, nap schedules, rolling over, starting solids, sitting up, teething, growth spurts, sleep regressions, first words, crawling, talking, walking. I mean…how could it not fly by? That’s an insane amount of growth and development within a relatively short period of time. Being on the brink of celebrating my own li
Dear Best Friend, I Love You.
I have no idea where to even begin this post. Literal, legit, writer’s block. This is about my best friend…why is it so hard to try to find words to talk about how awesome she is. I have zero issues filling up a post about a family that I’ve only spent a couple hours with. But where do I even start trying to write about someone I’ve spent the last sixteen years with? This girl and I have experienced just about every major life milestone together, usually not from the same cit
What year has been your favorite?
Anyone want to guess what the most used app on my phone was last week? My weather checker. I was stalking the Saturday forecast about 10-12 times a day praying that my senior session with Heather didn’t get rained out. There’s aren’t many things that can put a photographer into a panic like a 90% chance of rain on session day…well except for two dead batteries or forgetting to load your memory cards. We hung out in downtown Tomball, which is one of my FAVORITE places on this
