Christmas Minis 2017

As I launch Christmas minis for 2018, I am feeling it is time I shared Christmas minis from 2017! Like finally, am I right? 2017 was a banner year for Christmas minis, I paired with a hair and makeup artist for the first time and offered them in my new studio! And honestly? I loved being able to have sessions at a place with amazing natural light and not being at the whim of storms or blisteringly hot days. Wearing sweaters and hats on a 90 degree day don’t mix!! Enjoy the sessions below, as I feature some wonderful clients ūüôā Also, if you want to book my fall or Christmas minis for 2018¬†go HERE!

The Shanks

I have been capturing these lovely ladies since they were born in the NICU! And her momma and I have competed in a CrossFit competition together, and working out off and on together through the years. I love this family, Waylan has been playing his butt off playing football and the girls just had their third birthday.

Texas Portrait Photographer | Fall Mini Sessions

Last fall, I held some amazing fall mini sessions both on Galveston Beach and at Rice University. It was an amazing time capturing these growing families, some of who I have been capturing for a few years. One family was there when I first started, and have continued to be so fun to capture through the years. These fall mini sessions are some of my favorites, and I think going forward Rice University will be the home of these sessions, as it gives us so many different locations for gorgeous pictures. Plus that architecture! So buckle in gentle readers, as I show off these beautiful families!

The Maass Family

I have known Jennifer for years now–since I basically moved to Houston. We were store managers together! We have been talking for¬†forever¬†about me capturing her family, and we finally did it! Her girls are growing up so quickly, turning into young women. There is so much love and frivolity in this family, I feel like you can feel it in every image!

Christmas Minis 2017

What most people do for their Christmas pictures is go to an elaborate setup outdoors. I remember my first year doing this and all of us sweating and feeling uncomfortable. I literally had to wipe sweat off my brow as I was taking pictures, as the kids squirmed from the heat! We all know that in Houston you can never count on the temperature to drop in November.
 
I believe portraits are precious time capsules in your life. Thus, for 2017 I want to make it different. Sessions in a studio, my new studio! A white tufted couch, a Christmas tree, lots of laughter and your family captured as they are. I might have treats, who knows!! But what you can count on? No sweating, just great light and a relaxed atmosphere.

Mommy & Me Minis

These next two Mommy & Me minis were set in the morning. The very early morning! The sun was so much softer, a little less golden. The softness made for pictures that made me rethink whether I preferred evening sessions. Plus, it was nice and not crazy hot, which is a miracle in May in Houston.

The Shanks

I have been photographing these sweet twin girls since they born and in the ICU. I still remember when Eileen told me she was pregnant, she was so excited and happy. And these girls are two years old! From her Facebook posts, Eileen loves dressing up her girls all the time. So it should be no surprise that all three ladies were dressed up for their 7am session. Coffee in hand, Eileen didn’t only make this session work, she and her girls rocked it!

The Hecks

Let’s discuss how obsessed Wendy’s daughter is with bubbles! She accidentally stumbled upon them and then they were in her hands the rest of the session. I love how¬†Wendy went with some of my more quirky ideas, like drinking coffee in some of the pictures. It’s these little things that show what motherhood is really like. Her daughter also turned two this year, and loves being read to. This session is basically all lambs and loveliness.

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??

Christmas Minis Pt 4 | Houston Portrait Photographer

As Christa and her family walked towards me I knew something amazing was a foot. They were dressed up. The energy was high and I knew we were about to have an epic session! I freaking love this family because they are incredibly comfortable together and in front of the camera. Needless to say we got a ton of great images and laughed the entire time.
