Houston Portrait Photographer – Fall Mini Sessions Pt 2

Fall Mini Sessions Part 2!

Part two of my fall mini sessions continues with two fun families! Same gorgeous location: Christina V Adair Park. Families of four is this post’s theme.

The Ferrara’s

Big grins greeted me, as I turned to their car. The light of the day was quickly dying, but instead of being stressed, Lisa, Jason and their twin daughters took it as a challenge. Having photographed this family last year for Christmas, we were already comfortable together. This lead naturally to us doing a few poses and then getting silly. The smiles were all natural, the love tangible.

Houston Wedding Photographer – Chandelier Grove

One of the most beautiful venues I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at in 2016 was at Chandelier Grove. Tucked away in north Houston, this venue has ample room for two buildings plus parking and sprawling land for portraits. The owners only take a certain number of weddings a year, at an intimate size. With its barn location and greenery, it is one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding.

The House

Not every venue has the space for both the bride and groom to get ready in. Even if there is a space for the groom and his wedding party, most venues have a tiny space for them, making taking pictures more challenging. At Chandelier Grove, this is the exact opposite. There is a kitchen, a living room and reading room for the men to relax in. They are tucked away comfortably at the rear of the house, making the front the space for the bride and her wedding party. The room has plenty of space for a large wedding party and the family. Everything is in dark wood and decorated beautifully. Also, with ample seating, the wedding party can lounge as pictures are taken and the bride gets ready.

Houston Portrait Photographer – Fall Mini Sessions Pt 1

October was the time for fall mini sessions and I found the perfect nook to take some beautiful pictures. I got to meet some sweet families and we had fun playing around.

The Gill Family

Kendall, the mom, originally was going to have it just be of her two boys but when they arrived, everyone joined in the fun. They are a fun, easy-going family, the boys loving baseball, biking and basically anything outdoors. I knew we had to incorporate some of that into the pictures! The youngest reminded me of myself–high energy and gregarious. He was always trying to sneak in funny faces and be silly. The oldest was a great compliment to his brother, and Kendall told me they are best friends. You know, best friends who love to beat each other up!

Wedding Flowers: A Few Things to Think About

Wedding Flowers? Yes!

I have to confess when I got married flowers were not top of my list of things to think about. I was thinking about food, the dress and the photographer at first. I didn’t realize the impact flowers could have on the aesthetic of your overall wedding look. Truthfully, I didn’t “get” it until I started photographing weddings.  When I went to a few florists the cost of everything was shocking to me andI was not mentally prepared for the price tag. That being said, knowing now how much time and effort goes into the floral creations I get to photograph, I respect the cost. Furthermore, I have a renewed love for flowers and understand how they can affect your overall aesthetic!

Bouquet

The bridal bouquet is typically a statement piece and should be designed after buying the wedding dress. For my wedding I went with a tight bouquet of gerbera daisies, but have come to love an arrangement that is larger in stature. I am also loving the trend in incorporating food into the arrangements. But most of all, with today’s trend of using metallics, bright pops of color from the florals is an amazing contrast.Lisa Frank color scheme

Houston Event Photographer | Mostess Event

Hostess with the Mostess

Did you know that Houston has its own subscription box? One geared towards people who love entertaining in their home, with a love for unique find ands alcohol? Yeah, neither did I! But it’s true! It’s called The Mostess Box and they had a launch party a little bit ago to show off all of their awesome boxes they have planned. I was there to capture all the details and awesome women in attendance!

The Party

In each corner of the space there was a a different styled bar cart or table. It featured each upcoming box, the contents for each one, in a cute stylized way. If the box featured food, we got to snack on it! There were two customized drinks as well, which were dangerously delicious by the way. Other fun touches? Swag bags, macrons with the box’s logo on it, and an incredible confetti bar! I made a ton of boomerang videos of it as well!

Houston Portrait Photographer – Baby Coleman

Houston Portrait Photographer – Baby Coleman

By now, I’m sure Andy and Emily look pretty familiar! I’ve been capturing their love since their wedding in 2015. I had the honor of photographing their newest son, Louis Brooks, who was born on September 22, at a whopping 8 lbs. 8 oz. As mommies, we of course love the times when our babies are the littlest. We love their little toes, little fingers and little lips. When we’re new mommies, we even love their little diapers. Because of this, we obviously wanted to capture Louis at his tiniest. We decided to meet a few days after his birth so that I could document the excitement that is brought about by the freshness of a new baby in the family.

His older sister, Olivia was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire session! I can tell she’s going to be a great big sister. She was careful but loving with Lou the entire session–it was precious!

Being a huge Potter-head myself, I absolutely adored the Harry Potter themed scarf that we were able to use for the session. We also used swaddling blankets from Target, and an adorable green dinosaur and fox hat. I really think the personality of the family came out through these pictures– which obviously means they’re some of my favorites! Seeing as I have photographed the Colemans for a few years now, I feel like I’ve gotten to watch their hearts grow before my eyes. I can’t wait to document the next big stage of their life. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your family in such an intimate way. I love you all! <3
