Second time I’ve photographed these kiddos at Brazos Bend! Much of the time with these two is spent picking flowers and exploring the grass and trees. How wonderful is the curiosity of children!

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.



When I was in college I had around 32 roommates total.  Chantel was in my last apartment and was one of my very favorites!  She studied accounting and would stay late at the library, getting home past midnight every night.  I frequently waited up for her and then we’d talk and giggle in the bathroom until our roommate Tina stumbled out of her room and asked us to keep it down (usually around 2 am).  Memories of these late nights and our exploits around town made me really miss Chantel, so I made her come visit me in Houston!

Chantel is one of the most incredible people I’ve ever met!  She’s deeply dedicated, passionate, loyal, ambitious, fun, spontaneous, and contemplative.  I don’t know how many people will join me in chasing and following rabbits into bushes and then have a serious discussion on behavioral economics.  You can see what I mean when you look at her blog here.

By the way, going to a carnival in the middle of a work day in a sketchy part of town is a little disconcerting.  The few workers that were there just stared at us while we took these shots.

After all the fun we had in Houston I asked her to come to India with me too :).  Working with kids in an orphanage/school there was quite exhausting, but one of my new favorite memories with Chantel.  I’m so glad we’re friends!  I’ll treasure these memories and these photos when we’re old and wrinkly :).


Remember Hank?  Here’s a shot from his newborn session:

He’s now a darling 1-year-old!  On his way to be a future tennis star.

Or golfer!

He has the most beautiful big brown eyes.  It was so much fun to photograph him again!

Some of you may remember baby L back when he was a newborn (remember? cutest yawning picture ever?).  He’s a big boy here at 7 months old and still as cute as ever.  Check out that hair!  His mama said he totally got her unruly hair, but I love it!! We met for a fun morning at Hermann Park!

They’re moving to Colorado, which makes me sad.  I’m sure Colorado is going to increase in coolness exponentially as soon as they arrive.  I’ll miss photographing your cute family!
