Jane reached out a week before she was due with her second baby. It was a tight month with back to back sessions, but she was a referral from a recent (and awesome) client, so I made it happen! And I’m SO so glad I did! They are the most fun, lively, spirited, and happy […]

Emily and Evan were in pure parenthood bliss when their sweet baby boy arrived. We had a lifestyle at-home newborn session and baby boy was so peaceful. His nursery was decorated beautifully. We went out back for some Vitamin D and heard beautiful birdsongs and chirping. Congrats, you two!

Vanessa wanted a relaxed family session with some bluebonnets. I worried so much about possibility of not finding a decent bluebonnet field in town because so many of our fields didn’t come back this spring like they usually do! EEK! This is likely because of our harsh winter freeze. Needless to say, we found a […]

I got to experience a beautiful family reuniting again for the first time in over a year. They stayed apart during the 2020 because of COVID. Grandparents meeting their baby grandchild for the first time, cousins meeting their new baby cousin, toddlers playing with their fun older cousins- so sweet! I’m really grateful I get […]

Wow, what a winter! I know in one of my previous posts, I mentioned how much this Texan loves to see snow. Well, scratch that! Ha. After this past winter storm, I’m not quite sure I’d like to see snow again! Thankfully, we all survived the long, dark days of power outages, water shut-offs, and […]
