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.

We set up the cutest little fairy tale first birthday session for this little princess.  I am beyond excited to share these images of our mommy and me birthday photo shoot!

Mom, Storri, had requested we incorporate a fall set-up complete with colorful pumpkins and bright sunflowers.  As a Woodlands child photographer, I have some amazing props in my collection and we found a pumpkin large enough to tuck June in for an adorable fall photo complete with a sunflower headband!  I love how cute her chubby little legs look tucking out!  As she starts walking more over the next few months, her legs will become more muscular, fo first birthdays are usually some of the last opportunities we have to get photos of those little rolls and tiny toes.

Fun on the Flower Hoop

We used my flower hoop for some sweet fairy photos.  I thought she looked absolutely gorgeous in her lavender dress tucked among the petals and vines, and her emerging toddler curiosity made for the cutest shot of her picking up one of the flowers.  

Of course no first birthday session would be complete without a cake smash!  We decorated this high chair with a colorful garland and outfitted June with a crown, just as a princess should have. She was full of smiles and giggles as she tried the icing.

June was so sweet and cooperative for each setup and we wrapped up this full session in an hour, pretty awesome! Storri was gorgeous and we even did a few photos with the two grandmothers with sweet June.

    Laci! I love this whole shoot. I’m super interested in doing something similar for when B turns 1 (December 10)…. I also really like the idea of having my mom, my grandmother, and my sister getting in with her/one all together… so kinda like the “generations” of the women in our family.ReplyCancel

Oh, to have the joy of a child. This little beauty’s smile could illuminate any room! Blakley was such a pleasure to photograph.

about this sweet family

Megan contacted me about doing Blakley’s first birthday photos, but they also wanted to do some family photos as well. Because of timing, we pushed it back a bit, but I think it worked out just fine. I love how they came out – the light was amazing for this early morning shoot, and Blakley was nothing but smiles!

I like to learn a little about my babies before photographing them so that I can better capture their personalities. Mom told me that she’s generally a happy, sweet, giggly little girl, and it’s not too hard to make her smile. She’s a morning person and an adventurous little explorer. In true toddler fashion, even the smallest, silliest things can induce a fit of giggles. She has a way of making you feel like the most special person in the world when she stares into your eyes and laughs uncontrollably from a simple “I’m going to get you” game.

So, we planned our 7am outdoor adventure! I actually love early morning shoots. The stillness is so peaceful, and birds are just beginning to find their voices. Baby Blakley seemed like she had found her happy place when we arrived as she took on her surroundings, mesmerized by fresh shine of the morning. She carefully examined the rocks and leaves. She looked so cute as she conducted her “studies” of her new environment. Mom said she is very careful and meticulous, just like her dad.

For the birthday photos, she was dressed in an adorable tulle skirt, ruffled shirt, and matching floral headband. She happily sat atop a wooden crate with a single golden balloon. Cutest little birthday girl I’ve ever seen! The photo seemed to capture her personality just perfectly. And of course, we got some priceless family portraits, too.

    Family Petite Session – Mays Family

    Family Petite Session – Mays Family

    I’m so behind on blogging, this sweet family visited me last fall!!

    You know that moment when you catch yourself staring at your baby’s sweet smile that expresses pure, complete joy. You could stare at the perfect smile for hours, and you want to just freeze that moment in time.

    Hannah had one of those moments with her sweet son Asher. He has the most wonderful smile, and she wrote, “I know how fast time goes with little, ones and I want to capture this moment in time with all of us to cherish those memories forever.” So, she and her husband Ryan contacted me to set up a fall session for their special family of three.

    This fall setting was perfect for capturing the warm feel that she was going for. I love how the soft glow reflected the love between the three of them, and I was so excited to document this blissful stage for them. Asher was just six months old at the time, and he was so happy! It was as if he knew what mom was wanting, and he flashed that cute smile over and over again. I immediately knew what Hannah meant – I could photograph that handsome little guy all day!

    If you know that you’ll be wanting quite a few updated family portraits throughout those early childhood years or planning on getting milestone photos, a petite family session like this one is a great option. They are just a little shorter and don’t require quite the investment of larger sessions, but they still capture those precious memories that you’re wanting. I always make sure to ask my families what they’re hoping to get from the session and aim for those types of images. Shorter sessions never mean lower quality, and they are fantastic options for families with little ones who have shorter attention spans.

    Thank you, Mays Family, for this heartwarming fall session! It was a pleasure to capture it for you!

      Christmas Tree Farm Minis – Woodlands Area Photographer

      Woodlands Area Photographer – Christmas Tree Farm Minis

      Last year was my first year doing Christmas Tree Farm Sessions, and they were SO FUN and AMAZING. I’m honestly not sure why I haven’t done them sooner.  They are a huge hit with my LLP family and I’m so glad to be able to provide an amazing tree farm setting for everyone. The smell of the Christmas Trees is enough to get me into the Christmas spirit right away! And the amazing fall and Christmas themed colors my clients wear is just perfection! The tree farm at Spring Creek Growers was fantastic, so accommodating to both photographers and guests. When they open their dates to the public I highly recommend going back and doing the fun activities and getting your tree! They have fun themed days along with tractor/hay rides and even Santa!

      Christmas Tree Farm sessions, are quick fun ways to get updated family photos or photos for your Christmas cards! The tree farm is our “prop” along with a crate or so for the kiddos. You can do full family pics, or just focus on your sweet babies! What is awesome about the tree farm is its so amazing in overcast or sunlight! You are welcome to bring your leashed pups as well! Its always fun to include all the members of your family, including the furry ones!
