Houston Family Photographer | Wacky Fun Family!

Houston Family Photographer | Wacky Fun Family!

When you meet a family as fun and wacky as Kayla’s, you know their portrait session is going to be awesome! Kayla confessed that they hadn’t had family pictures “in forever”. Considering her family is large, unconventional and awesome, she preferred a location as unique as them. We were hoping the blue trees would still be around, but sadly they had faded, so we went to plan B. And plan B was awesome: graffiti walls!

The Walls

We started off at the Houston wall because the light was hitting it perfectly. Plus, it’s iconic, ok? I love the sets when they are walking towards me, looking iconic. Then we went across the street to the zipper wall. We all loved the wall because of its vibrant colors. Right beside that wall were two other walls with vibrant red and purple shades, so obviously we had to do pictures there too!!

I think my favorite moment is when they all tried to jump in the air at the same time. It reminded me of one of my favorite scenes in The Office when the group trips to nail the jump. It is perfectly imperfect, and makes me laugh every time!!

When looking all this fun family photography, which moment is your favorite? Is it the group shots of them walking towards the camera, the jumping photo, or did something else jump out at you?

Houston Bridal Photographer | Katy’s Bridal Portraits

Houston Bridal Photographer | Katy’s Bridal Portraits

I love sharing bridal portraits the day after the wedding! Katy and Carson had a wedding that was truly magical, filled with Harry Potter touches, so you know I was delighted!! Plus, there was so much love, that when I look at these bridal portraits I am even more inspired.

The Bridal Portraits

Katy’s bridal portraits were nothing short of exceptional. I don’t say this lightly. Katy is an attorney and she wanted to have that incorporated into her bridal portraits in a unique way, so we did the session at Lawless Spirits & Kitchen. Lawless Spirits & Kitchen is such a cool choice!! It is a place that embraces “the mavericks, dissenters, and nonconformists who have shaped the world with their unbridled courage and unrestrained passion”. It has pictures of famous people who have embodied this vision in their life, from Ghandi to MarkTwain to Susan B. Anthony. As Katy is a person who also embodies these qualities, this venue fit her like a glove.

The Dress

Katy’s dress is glittery magic! it has an art deco feel to it, with swirly patterns, beading and shimmer. Form-fitting, it hangs on her every curve, like the dress is kissing her. And that train! You guys, that train is just enough and has a dramatic effect ?Add in that veil, and she is the epitome of a classy, elegant bride. So what is your favorite part of Katy’s dress? Let me know in the comments? Also, don’t you just love the venue?

Texas Wedding Photographer | Crystal’s Bridals at The Bell Tower on 34th

The Bell Tower on 34th is a favorite of mine within the downtown Houston area, so when Crystal was getting married there and doing her bridals there, I knew I was in for a treat! Crystal brought her mom and her sister, which was perfect for dress fluffing, hair fixing and keeping her laughing. And it was the perfect day for these photos at The Bell Tower! It wasn’t too humid, which, if you live in Houston, you know is a miracle. We had lots of sun and there were so many gorgeous areas in The Bell Tower to take pictures. (more…)

Houston Senior Photographer | JW’s Houston Senior Session

Houston Senior Photographer | JW’s Houston Senior Session

Houston is full of awesome areas to do a senior session – and I had so much fun with JW! Being a Houston senior photographer means that I get to explore our city to find fun ways to incorporate my client’s personalities into their images.  Not only did we get to use the awesome murals in downtown Houston, but we were able to find a beautiful wooded area for a more traditional vibe. One thing about JW: he loves to workout and football. We were able to go to a gym and get some super fun and unique senior shots that really show off his personality.

Senior photos are the kind of thing that you look back on to remember exactly who you were in high school. I know I remember vividly! In such a transient time, you want to make sure that you’ve got a photographer that will capture that for you. When JW and I met, he had a clear vision in his mind for these pictures. I tried to pay homage to exactly who JW is, while also thinking about his family and the things that they would want to see when they look back at these photos.  We had a blast – and I think you’ll be able to see that when you check out the images!

San Diego Portrait Photographer | Cosplay and Comic-Con

San Diego Portrait Photographer | Cosplay and Comic-Con

Cosplay and Comic-Con go hand in hand, especially at San Diego! The biggest and most star-studded of all the comic-cons, San Diego has created something truly magical. So when Colleen approached me a year ago to come to San Diego and capture her and her sister/friends in their group set, the next thing I did was look up flights. I was there!

Critical Role Cosplay

For the uninitiated {so, basically me} Critical Role is a web series where a group of professional voice actors play Dungeons & Dragons. So all the characters from this world are rangers, druids and the like, including a dungeon master. I envision it in my head as a cross between Lord of the Rings and Labirynth personally. From this inspiration, Colleen and her group designed their look, which I have to say turned out amazingly!

Colleen and her friends and family had different looks for each day, with intricate details. I believe they prepare all year for this, which you can see in the quality of their outfits. A few of them even have their own Instagram accounts and websites. You should check them out, it’s impressive.

Offbeat Worlds

She went as Keyleth, and I love the attention to detail in her outfit. Especially her staff! She has her own Facebook page and shows off more than just her incredible outfits, she is an incredible artist too.

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.
