Houston Portrait Photographer – Coleman Gender Reveal

Houston Portrait Photographer – Coleman Gender Reveal

Hope everyone is doing well this week and staying dry.  As we Houstonians are preparing for another round of rain, I thought it would be a great time to share this gender reveal that I just loved so much. I mean I got to eat cake and play with balloons, how can you go wrong?

I photographed Emily & Andy’s wedding in June of 2015 {I am sure you remember that blog post} and the two got pregnant quickly afterwards!!  They surely did not waste any time and I am over-joyed for them, especially considering I will be with them every step of the way.  Emily’s daughter, family and close friends all attended this gender reveal. What better way to find out your baby’s gender than being surrounded by the ones that you love the most?! Andy and Emily have been together for a while and are just so happy to be bringing a brother to their family. For the gender reveal, they decided to fill a box with balloons and glitter and have it cascade on them, as well as launching blue color canons into the air as a family {including Emily’s parents and her sister Kathy}.

We included some props that included a cake with a gender neutral outside that had four different colors of blue on the inside, made by Owl Bake it From Here.  It was easy to determine that they were having a precious baby boy with the four different shades of blue inside the cake! I loved the topper, but I love glitter so that’s no surprise 😀

To see more from this session, just keep scrolling down.  And to book your very own, please drop me a line!  I’d love to hear from you.  And for more information on my sessions, be sure to check out my website!

Space City Comic-Con: Sunday

Space City Comic-Con: Sunday

The final day was a lot less intense at Space City Comic-Con, probably because a lot of people bought their tickets Friday and Saturday, so you could walk right in, no lines. Also it seems likely that there was some leftover drama from the Sons of Anarchy from Saturday {which you can read about here}, so it seems less people came Sunday because of that. But it didn’t matter because the people who did come were there for William Shatner, who I was able to see as he signed autographs, but sadly left right as I was arriving, so no signature for this lady.

I wanted to buy the Captain America top hat, but it was sold out by the time I got there, but these were the other ones available, the My Little Pony one being especially awesome!!

I freaking love that this booth had cosplay stuffed animals. SO fun!!

Nasa had a whole set-up at the comic-con, and even had a virtual reality set-up that had huge lines. It was a lot of fun and possibly made me a little dizzy.

I may or may not have purchased the moose hat for my Captain America…it makes him more Canadian, ok??

The line-up to get your picture with William Shatner, intense!!

Of course the highlight were all the people who were dressed up! Again, costumes were totally amazing and on-point. My hat tips to everyone who put so much effort into their cosplay outfits. You were all amazing!!!

Little Rey was adorable 🙂 2016-05-31_0024

This person was one of the most impressive all weekend. She looked like a concrete statue and had several poses. I should have videotaped her. 2016-05-31_00252016-05-31_00262016-05-31_00272016-05-31_00282016-05-31_0029Space City Comic-Con photographer

These two were the only Harry Potter cosplay I could find all weekend! I obviously had to stop them and make them duel. It’s only proper!

Overall, the weekend was fantastic! I have now developed a taste for comic-cons and am now planning on going to Comicpalooza in June and Fan Expo in Toronto in September!! I have started to furious plan my outfit, Harry Potter inspired!

Space City Comic-Con: Saturday

Space City Comic-Con: Saturday

Arriving Saturday, it felt like Friday was a warm-up for the madness that was Saturday for the Space City Comic-Con. It started well before I even got into the building, as there was a huge line-up of cars to get into NRG Stadium’s parking lot. Not everyone was there for comic-con, but enough people were that it made parking….interesting. As I arrived to the building there were 5 food trucks {yum!} and the line-ups to get into the space were four times as long as Friday {note to self: if I buy tickets and not cover it in a media capacity, go Friday to get my lanyards}.

Everything was amped up–people’s costumes, the booths, lines for autographs, everything! Some booths were incredibly fun {Nasa, cool pod-like devices, a Tardis to take pictures in}, and the personalities that dressed up were engaging with fans and making things ridiculously fun!

They had a dance-off, it was kind of epic!! And hilarious! The guy who is Wolverine even has his own FB page and is incredible!

The Winchester car from Supernatural! It is as beautiful in person as you would expect. It even had weapons in the trunk and backseat. So many people were getting their pictures with it.

There was a huge amount of cast from Sons of Anarchy on this day, which accounts for a lot of the crowd, including Charlie Hunnam! I saw him signing autographs but the volunteers were very persistent in preventing anyone from getting a picture of him, so I was unable to get one. Le sad. At least I got one of Alex Kingston!

And of course people’s outfits were on point!!! Although there were a lot of Harley Quinn costumes {I don’t have that body-type to pull that off}, I did see more than one female Quicksilver {awesome!} and families who were dressed in a coordinated fashion {yaaaasss! Start them young I say!}. Some were freaking disturbing, and all were fun!

These two made me laugh! Low-budget Batman with a towel? Ha ha, yes please! Plus he has his own Youtube channel? Awesome

I am not sure if you can tell from the picture, but he had white contacts in his eyes, to add to the creep effect. Disturbingly awesome in person!

Behind the Camera Series: My First Ever Comic-Con

This past weekend I went to my first ever comic-con. I have been told for years that I needed to go but I just never did. This year I made it a point to go, I needed to see what it was all about and I wanted to see what cool costumes people were going to wear. I was not disappointed!!Houston Wedding Photographer

First off, this comic-con is a place where my paycheck goes to die! There were so many things for sale from some amazing vendors that I had to be careful. I wanted that Captain America top hat, or that glittery necklace with real clockwork pieces in it! OMG is that a Harry Potter Clue game? And what about all that artwork? That Supernatural bag? I have to say on the Friday I did not spend a single penny at the comic-con and I was dang proud of myself!!!

The thing that struck me the most was how passionate and committed people were to their costumes! It was impressive and inspiring, and I felt completely under-dressed {I was wearing a black shirt and jeans, so it is my own fault!}. There were super heroes, Walking Dead, Trekkies, Star Wars and then costumes I couldn’t place {I am obviously not knowledgable enough}. Friday was just a taste of what was to come, and because I got so many great shots of people and costumes, this post will just be of Friday.

Also, after meeting steam punk Captain America and Winter Soldier as I was leaving the comic-con, I feel I have been inspired for my own costume for next year!

This lovely lady was completely committed to her costume and personna. And was so sweet! She even addressed herself as Uhura.

This group was totally committed and amazing! We did one ‘regular’ shot and then needed almost no prompting to get into character. it was great!

Houston Engagement Photographer | Stacey and Jorge

Houston Engagement Photographer | Stacey and Jorge

I hope everyone is doing great and staying dry during this crazy weather here in Houston!  I just got back from vacation and next up on the blog is Stacey and Jorge’s engagement session.  Stacey and Jorge went dressy casual for the first set of images.  Stacey was clothed in a beautiful blue dress, while Jorge went the simple and classic route of a white polo and jeans.  They included Jorge’s son, Jacob for their pictures.  I mean.. why not?  He is part of them and this time in their lives.  Being a Houston Engagement Photographer, this session was just too good to be true and I enjoyed every minute of it.

The second set of images you will see her pictured in Houston Rockets gear, while Jorge in Houston Texans gear.  Jacob even got in on the fun and wore a Houston Astro’s shirt!  I loved this session so much because they really worked hard to bring personal touches to it, which tells a story through images while complimenting them!! Jorge also brought some of his firefighter gear and some of the best pictures were taken with both Jorge and Stacey wearing them!  It was such a fun and unique variety to compliment this collection of images.

Stacey and Jorge met through their mutual friend Deanna in January 2010, as Deanna was holding a party to watch a UFC fight. From there they talked long-distance while Stacey finished school. When she moved back to the area they started dating right away!  On their 5-year anniversary in front of the Houston skyline –the same spot where Jorge told Stacey he loved her for the first time -{how freaking cute is that??} he proposed.  Keep scrolling to see these Chinese food, tv watchin’ cuties in a perfect Houston Engagement Photographer photo shoot!
