welcome!

If you’re looking for a photographer to capture the fun and love of your family, then you’ve come to the right place. I believe those moments are meant to be preserved as memories.

The Woodlands Extended Family Session | The Dresners

The Woodlands Extended Family Session

I love all of my clients dearly, and one of my favorite things about being a photographer is building relationships with the families I photograph. As I get to know them, especially if they book multiple sessions over the years, I’m able to fully capture the essence of who they are. Plus, it’s amazing to watch their little ones grow and develop—I’m always astonished at how fast they transform from tiny newborns to toddling two-year-olds and on to playful preschoolers. When I get back together with returning clients, it’s like meeting up with old friends. We can always pick right back up where we left off.

About this sweet family

Erin and her Husband Dustin have entrusted me to do their family photos since the announcement of their pregnancy. Since then, I have seen them for a maternity session, lifestyle newborn session, bluebonnet mini session, and first birthday milestone shoot. So when they contacted me to do an extended family session in November, I couldn’t wait to get it booked and see their smiling faces again. This great gathering would include Dustin’s parents as well as his sister and her family—how amazing that they can all get together like this!

Unfortunately, we faced dreary weather as everyone was coming in from out of town. But I knew there had to be another option. Getting this many people together doesn’t happen every day. Sure enough, we lucked out when we found out about The Oak Atelier, a photography and event venue in Magnolia! They had an amazing indoor space to use with huge windows, skylights, and white-washed brick—perfect for capturing natural light. The sky was overcast yet not raining for us to capture some poses outside too. I absolutely adore this family and love how they make me feel like one of their own. I’m thrilled we not only made this work, but found the perfect spot to capture their entire group. Until next time, Dresner Family!

    Vintage Truck Mini Sessions in The Woodlands

    Vintage Truck Mini Sessions in The Woodlands

    There’s something nostalgic about an old vintage truck, especially with adorable kiddos filling the back as they climb on the wheel hubs, dangle their little feet off the tailgate, and wrestle on a blanket spread out for watching the sun set. I think back to my own childhood. During the long summer days, there was nothing better than sipping some lemonade with friends on the tailgate beneath a shady oak tree. And in the winter, we’d all climb in with a bunch of cozy blankets, sometimes in front of a warm campfire. We’d just chat and laugh until our parents told us it was time to come inside. I guess that’s why the vintage truck theme has been so popular. It’s so reminiscent of those carefree days.

    2018 was actually the first year I’ve done Vintage Truck Mini Sessions in Spring, Tx, and they were a huge hit! We found the most amazing old teal-colored truck, and my clients were adorable as always. I enjoyed getting to see some old faces (wow, these kiddos grow so fast!), and I met some new ones, too! To match the teal vintage look, we added some farmhouse-style props: crates, burlap, Christmas-themed feed sacks, holiday wreaths—the whole shabang. And you can’t have Christmas pictures without a little plaid, so I added a snuggly blanket for the kids to sit on. I love how they came out—so classic!

    Here were the details of these sessions:

    Children Only – 5 Images, $175

    Families – 10 Images, $300

    I have a feeling that these fun Christmastime mini sessions will become a tradition. They definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. Can’t wait to see all these cuties and their families next year!

      The Woodlands Tx Family Session | The Hendersons

      The Woodlands Tx Family Session

      Sometimes the places we see every day provide the best backdrops for family portraits. A backyard photo session or a day at the park not only offers the comfort of familiarity for little ones during the shoot, but these are the places that hold the most memories for us. They create amazing memoirs. We can look back on the photos years from now and tell our kids, “This is the park we used to visit. You loved to feed the ducks there, and when you got older, this is where you learned to fish!” One of the things I love most about being a mostly-outdoor photographer is that you don’t have to go much past your doorstep to see the beauty of nature.

      This sweet family was a dream

      So, when Karen contacted me to take photos of her sweet family at their local Creekside Pondera Park, I couldn’t wait to get started. Their two sweet boys, William and Christopher, were so handsome! They know this park well, so they had a blast exploring their stomping grounds and showing me all of their favorite spots (and favorite leaves, and favorite rocks).  Oh, how I wish I still had the energy of a preschooler. I love how they find even the most ordinary things extraordinary. Every uncovered rock is another piece of treasure to add to the collection. William made sure to let me know that he LOVES Legos…but he might love riding his bike even more. And Christopher loves playing Batman and building (and I’m sure deconstructing his brother’s Lego creations sometimes).

      Needless to say, this session was so much fun. The boys kept giving me their best smiles as they ventured around the small pond. And to top it off, a perfect sunset lit up the backdrop with a shy peak of sunshine at the end.

        Christmas Tree Farm Sessions 2018 | Houston Family Photographer

        Christmas Tree Farm Sessions 2018 | Houston Family Photographer

        I don’t know about you, but nothing smells more like Christmas than a fresh-cut fir tree. When deciding which kinds of mini sessions to offer for the holidays, I thought it might be fun to try out a local Christmas Tree Farm. This was my first year offering Tree Farm Minis, and not knowing quite what to expect, I ended up booking three full days at the farm! Oh. My. Gosh. These were a bigger hit than I could have anticipated. And after doing the first few, I could see why. The vibrant green trees created a stunning backdrop for all of these smiling faces. Plus, the kiddos had an absolute blast running between the rows of trees, giggling ecstatically when we popped out to surprise them.

        If your little one has trouble showing his pearly whites in front of the camera, this is a great session to book. The setting feels so natural, and there is plenty of space to explore, so they won’t feel so much pressure. I’ve never had so many genuine smiles from kids before! Their joy was contagious, and I had just as much fun capturing these family photos as they did posing for them.

        I really enjoyed seeing so many returning clients and their sweet families, but I also had the honor of meeting so many new ones, too! I was a little apprehensive about how crowded the farm might be, but the rows of trees created perfect little niches for private photos. I am definitely looking forward to doing these again next year!

        All the details

        Here’s the info from the 2018 Tree Farm Minis:

          The Woodlands Bluebonnet Mini Sessions

          Annual Woodlands Bluebonnet Mini Sessions

          Springtime in Texas is truly a sight to behold. Depending on where you are in the state, wildflowers show off their short-lived beauty along every highway, open field, and serene pasture from mid-march to early-June. The Indian paintbrushes, Mexican hats, buttercups, and sunflowers are spectacular enough to draw crowds from all over. But the most well-known flower of them all—the crown jewel of Texas—is the bluebonnet. Thanks to Lady Bird Johnson who took charge of the Highway Beautification Act and planted native seeds along state highways, fields of blue span as far as the eye can see. There’s no arguing that spring is the best time for a relaxing Texas road trip.

          I know you have seen families pulled over on the side of the road trying to take family pictures, but I think this long-standing Texas tradition calls for some professional photos. I’d love to capture those sweet moments for you as your kids play among the petals. As a natural light photographer, this is my expertise!
