I’ve had the great honor of capturing this gorgeous family for the last couple of years. It’s one of the best parts of my job to be able to watch families and babies grow! We were able to capture these with perfect weather and sunshine. Happiest first birthday, sweet Charlie!

I just wanna leave this post up to celebrate such a memorable day for all. Our kiddos have never seen snow like this before…ever! My hubby use to live up north and saw snow regularly. He says this was “real snow”! But when you’re a lifelong Texan, you’ll take those once-in-a-blue moon tiny flurries and […]
