Ethan

 

Ethan is another little guy who I got to photograph first when he was just a wee one kicking on his mama’s bladder! I first met his parents back in October on a beautiful Houston fall day (but let’s be honest, she could be wearing that same dress this week. I do love Houston winters!).

I sure do love parents with a sense of humor! If you look close you’ll see Ethan’s outfit is covered in mustaches as well :).

 

He was so expressive! Kept making faces that cracked me up.

We did his session on his 1-month birthday, so his parents brought cupcakes to celebrate! They were quite delicious :). 

Vivienne

I love photographing a maternity session and then when I get to meet their baby as well! The way a woman can grow a human will never cease to fascinate me. I frequently ask new moms if they can believe such a squirmy little person fit inside them just days before!

I first got to photograph Shanelle and Reese in October when the weather in Houston is oh-so-nice!

I just love how happy they are together. What beautiful smiles!

 

Then in January I got to meet this beautiful soul!

What a sweetheart little Vivienne is. I love her grins!

 

Some days my job is like playing dress-up, except I get to snuggle with a real live baby. Those days are not too bad :).

Jamie and Wade

Maternity session at the beach at sunrise?   Yes, please!  I’m completely  in-love with these first two shots.  Those clouds and this beautiful couple totally made my day.

 

Fabiana

I really love being able to document growing families and sweet little Fabiana is super lucky to be born into such a kind, loving one.  I loved my sessions with her and her family!

Olivia is obviously one of those pregnant women that other women envy!  She makes being pregnant look phenomenal.

So much love.

I wasn’t surprised to see how beautiful she was!  With parents and a big brother as good-looking as they are, Fabiana was destined to be gorgeous.

She was such an easy baby to photograph.  Look at those sweet little hands!

 

Ali and Eric

I love photographing in new spots and this one also happened to be where this amazing couple got engaged!  I loved using the trees to create depth.  For those who don’t know Houston, this spot is only a few minutes away from downtown!

They aren’t finding out the gender of the baby until birth and I’m so excited!  I love it when people do that.

Ali is so sweet and gave me a lot of good tips for my trip to Bali.  They were really useful!

This last one is one of my favorites.

Congratulations!  Can’t wait to meet the little one.
