Fall minis last year were at one of my favorite spots in Houston: Rice University! Today I am highlighting three of the families who I captured. We explored different areas of Rice, but got pictures in the lovely corridors as well. I love how Rice gives you so many beautiful places to take pictures, it really makes my job so easy!

The Gills

I love this family! I captured them two years ago in a park session that was loads of fun! The parents are both very active and laid back, so we wanted to make this session a reflection of that. We kept it fun and light hearted! Plus Kendall and Jeremy have this amazing chemistry, so we had to get some photos of them making out a little. And to cap off the session, we had to do a group jump, it’s always so fun!

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!

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??

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.

Another familiar face for the third part of the Christmas minis! Emily, Andy, their precocious daughter and newly minted son Lou! Olivia was her typical rambunctious self, jumping around and singing to herself. I feel she might have a future in show business!

I love photographing this family because they are totally game for anything. Cute pose? Yup! Funny faces? You got it! A little bit of dancing? Why not! It makes for the best pictures.
