Houston Portrait Photographer | Adult Cake Smash

Robert’s Adult Cake Smash

My husband turned 30 this year and it hit me a week before his birthday–he needed to do a manly cake smash!! Robert was initially not into it, questioning why a cake smash needed to happen, to which I said “you have a problem eating a delicious vanilla cake without utensils and getting messy?”. When he saw it that way, he was convinced!!

I thankfully had a lot of the pieces for the shoot already, like the glass tumbler and coke, as well as the banner that said “Birthday Dude”, so all that was needed for this cake smash was a cake and a cake stand! I also might have picked up a donut or two to complete the look.

5 Things to Think About if Wedding Pictures are Important to You

You’re sitting here thinking “Of course wedding pictures are important to me, Christine!”. But I ask because when you are planning your wedding there are a lot of areas where you can cut costs, and with some of those choices you don’t notice the cut, but in others you do. In all honestly, wedding pictures are an area where if you cut too deep, you wind up with images you might not just regret but ultimately hate. So today I dig into 5 things you should think about if wedding pictures are important to you.

When a photographer is breaking into the wedding industry they typically price themselves in a lower {aka more appealing} price bracket. For reference, the average cost for a wedding photographer, according to The Knot, is $2783. I like to say the you can find a great photographer within $500 higher or lower for this amount. But anything less than $2200 and you are entering into what I call “newer” photographer territory. So to help navigate these waters, where you don’t want to spend an arm, leg and kidney for your images, but you still want the WOW factor, here are some tips in getting there:Swish + Click Photography (more…)

Sarah’s Bridal Portraits

The sun was soft and warm, the morning of Sarah’s bridal portraits. She was ready at the break of dawn, her mother having flown on a red-eye flight to make sure she was there to help. Sarah’s dress is strapless with pockets and a gorgeous belt. Combined with the sun and nature, Sarah’s bridal session is nothing short of gorgeous.

I am excited to share Sarah’s bridal portraits, as she and Earl got married yesterday! Remember their engagement session? The wedding was beautiful and fun! Congratulations to this amazing couple!

Houston Portrait Photographer | Mommy & Me Pt 1

Mommy & Me

These mommy & me sessions have been nothing but gorgeous. And they are so simple! A lace teepee, flowers, a blanket. You add my amazing clients and the sun, and blow me over, these mommy & me sessions are stunning!!!

The Blanchards

The mom, Kat, is one of my coaches at the my crossfit box. She leads a life that is crazy busy, not only running a small business, she trains every day, has two children who do sports, among other things. For her it’s not about having a magical moment of time reveal itself as free for photos. Nope, this busy mom a few days before, was able to make the time for the session.

Fun story: Kat’s husband was there {and helped setup the teepee, thank you!!}. While we were doing pictures, he was hanging out in the shrubs to the side, found a perfectly good woman’s shoe and decided to go looking for anything else. He convinced us he had found a body {he didn’t}! So now we have this mystery: what woman left this brand new, beautiful show behind in the bushes??

Blogger Photographer Houston | Gracefully Sassy

Blogger Photographer

One of the cool things I fell into has been photographing Houston-based bloggers. The majority have been lifestyle and fashion, but there are also fitness, wellness and travel bloggers too. In fact the blogging community in Houston is healthy and amazing! I got into it because a loyal client of mine, Sarah, whom you should all be well acquainted with, started her own fashion blog. I love these sessions because they are light and fun, and I get to ogle their cool accessories. Also, as a Canadian, I am still finding new places around Houston I never knew existed! These sessions help me explore more of Houston, with my camera 🙂

Gracefully Sassy

Sarah, aka Gracefully Sassy, is this truly sweet, good-heart woman who has a passion for cute quirky styles. She loves peppering her outfits with the best accessories, like a pizza or cactus purse! Sarah also loves pops of color and always tries to incorporate budget-friendly pieces into the mix. She has been at this for just over a year, and her blog and advice is so strong, you would have no idea she is new to all this!

My favorite outfits of hers always include a bright pop of color or something unexpected. We love doing our photos at funky walls or in Highland Village, as there is so much to work with there plus a Kate Spade store! Also, there is a Sprinkles Cupcakes there and I have been known to buy one or two cupcakes.

She is gearing up for a fun summer of watermelon, cactus themes with bright colors and maybe fireworks thrown in, who knows?? Behind the scenes Sarah is happily married and has an adorable pup who has stolen their hearts. To see more of her go to her Instagram and Facebook page!

Puppy Styled Engagement Session | C Wright Photography

Puppy + Owner = True Love

You know that going into doing a puppy styled engagement session that there would still be a theme to it. I mean yes, puppies on their own are cute AF, but as the ever creative person that I am, a little theme had to be thrown in there. The inspiration behind this styled session was to show that you don’t need a romantic partner in your life, that the love you and your dog have is more than enough.

Soulmate Has Four Legs

Let this be your inspiration to do pictures with your puppy! It doesn’t have to be cutesy and off-the-cuff! It can be a gorgeous sparkly skirt, a themed top and a matching puppy collar! In this set we included some gorgeous calligraphy signs and made it feel elegant and, well, adorable!! Look how the puppy Roxy basically grins in almost all the pictures? Too cute!!Puppy styled engagement sessionsoulmate has four legs
