Food Review: Snooze AM Eatery

Food Review: Snooze AM Eatery

If you have ever looked at my Instagram, you would know I am a huuuuge foodie. I love going to new restaurants, trying new takes on my favorite foods and taking copious pictures! So when I found out about Snooze restaurant, I knew I had to go. They have seasonal pancakes and other bites.

Weekends are not the time to go, by the way, everyone and their cousin go, and the wait is an hour long. Thus, the decision to go on a Wednesday! The decorations are vintage 1950’s, with old school star shapes and bright colors.

The Food

My eyes were larger than my stomach, so I wound up ordering more food than I could finish. I ordered two different eggs benedict {you can mix and match}, and the peanut butter cup pancakes. The pancakes are crazy delicious! They aren’t dense, just light and fluffy. The benedicts have a strong bernaise sauce on them, so be prepared for them to punch your tastebuds in the face. The eggs were cooked perfectly, when I cut into the egg the yolk it was the perfect consistency. The best part about the food though were the hashbrowns. They look like they had been baked into a can shape, were nice and crispy and full of flavor! Thus I was very impressed with them.

I have to add I took my new iPhone for a test run and the images look gorgeous. I am enjoying the quality of the images, they are more crisp than the images I had from my old Samsung.

It’s Friday here and Houston and still sizzling hot.  However, it’s almost the weekend and I am so excited.  I was also thankful to do these not in the blazing sun back in July, as it is so hot in the summers here!  Hey, I am not complaining, but you won’t hear me complain about the fall’s arrival either.  Next up on the blog this Friday is the sweet Heck family and their daughter’s (Callie) cake smash and 1 year portraits.

About this Houston Family Photographer Session

Robert looked awesome as he wore a purple dress shirt and grey dress slacks. Wendy work a pink shirt and a black maxi skirt. She complimented it with a black necklace.  Callie, the star of the show, started off in a onesie with a pink flamingo on it. Then she changed into a gorgeous dress with multicolored dots on it and striped belt that said “Birthday Girl” at the front. As she dug into the cake, she wore just a diaper and a bib that says “It’s my birthday!” in pinks, greens and blues to match the cake.

Callie turned one! To celebrate Wendy and Robert hired me to capture their daughter at The Studio HTX. We did a few family pictures and then we let Callie go crazy on the cake. Some of her images have her jubilant because she normally gets told NO when she tries to dig into foods with her fingers, and that day she was encouraged to go nuts on the cake.

Houston Maternity Photographer, the Colemans

I hope everyone is having a great week and I am so happy it’s Friday.  Although, for some photographers, work begins on the weekend.  Blogging, however, does happen during the week and I am so excited to share this Houston Maternity Photographer session that I took back in July of this year.

 

About this Houston Maternity Session

We took to Discovery Green and the Color and Cloth Wall in downtown Houston.  Emily, Andy, and Olivia were all such troopers and so much fun to work with.  Andy chose to be comfy in his blue polo and jeans.  Olivia (their sweet daughter) started off in a cute white top with a multicolored tutu in shades of pink, blue and yellow. To compliment, Emily wore a white shirt and a a shawl overtop in shades of pinks and blues, while wearing jeans. She complimented the outfit with earring and a necklace from Kendra Scott.  Once they got to the color wall, Olivia changed into a blue dress and a beige headband, now with a side braid. Emily changed into a black dress and blue jean jacket, while keeping her accessories the same.

This sweet family invested in my baby plan and you may have seen the previous post documenting their gender reveal.  A little while prior to that, I even shot their wedding.  To say that these guys mean so much to me, is just an understatement.  This Houston maternity session was just the next step in documenting these precious moments for this adorable family.   I don’t know if it is obvious, but Andy is so excited about baby Louis, the pride just beams off his face! Olivia is also super excited and was literally jumping in excitement of her baby brother during the session.

Houston Adult Cake Smash Photographer – Kris

Happy Sunday y’all! This session is like Sunday Brunch, it’s fun, it’s decadent and it gets a little crazy! Meet Kris and do keep reading so you can see her adorable Houston adult cake smash photographer session!

What is an Adult Cake Smash session, you ask?  Well, just look at the photos below!  It is so much fun when babies do it, but even more fun when a grown adult is willing to be a mess to celebrate their milestones in their lives!  We took to Little G Farm for this session.  It’s a quiet and dainty place, perfect for portraits with stunning light.  A perfect place for this session!   Kris wore several petticoats at the same time, all purchased from Malco Modes, an online store with amazing petticoats for all ages.

Kris turned 35 and wanted to do an adult cash smash to celebrate! She got her friend Chloe to make the cake and wore an adorable outfit with at least 4 petticoats.  Kris made the candy balls on the box with the cake herself. The macaroons and marshmallows on top of the cake were by Petite Sweets!

I do hope you enjoy looking at this session as much as I did photographing it.  Please do drop me a line for more information on sessions and how to book them.  I would love to meet you!  Be sure to email me with any questions and be sure to keep scrolling below to see those adorable highlights.

Happy Tuesday friends! I hope everyone is doing OK after the last two weeks of rain and that everyone is recovering if you’re flooded.  It’s quite devastating in the Houston area this month and last, but we always come together as a community and I am glad I can call Houston home.

I met Chelsea when I was photographing her at a Girls Gone RX competition at Crossfit EADO in October of 2015.  She and I connected at the event and was the lucky grand prize winner of my new website contest, so her hair was done professionally and we spent 2 fun-filled hours lifting weights, doing pull-ups and ending the session behind the ring light for dramatic profile pictures at Pearland CrossFit.

Chelsea wore the perfect workout gear that complimented her beautiful and strong physique which consisted of white shorts and a blue top and changed into these adorable gold shorts with a white shirt, which were acquired from Vullsport. Chelsea has been focusing on her strength training for a while, so these pictures highlight all the hard work she has done.

Houston Portrait Photographer – Coleman Gender Reveal

Houston Portrait Photographer – Coleman Gender Reveal

Hope everyone is doing well this week and staying dry.  As we Houstonians are preparing for another round of rain, I thought it would be a great time to share this gender reveal that I just loved so much. I mean I got to eat cake and play with balloons, how can you go wrong?

I photographed Emily & Andy’s wedding in June of 2015 {I am sure you remember that blog post} and the two got pregnant quickly afterwards!!  They surely did not waste any time and I am over-joyed for them, especially considering I will be with them every step of the way.  Emily’s daughter, family and close friends all attended this gender reveal. What better way to find out your baby’s gender than being surrounded by the ones that you love the most?! Andy and Emily have been together for a while and are just so happy to be bringing a brother to their family. For the gender reveal, they decided to fill a box with balloons and glitter and have it cascade on them, as well as launching blue color canons into the air as a family {including Emily’s parents and her sister Kathy}.

We included some props that included a cake with a gender neutral outside that had four different colors of blue on the inside, made by Owl Bake it From Here.  It was easy to determine that they were having a precious baby boy with the four different shades of blue inside the cake! I loved the topper, but I love glitter so that’s no surprise 😀
