Allen Family

This session took place at one of my absolute favorite locations that was recently destroyed by construction. I’m not quite recovered from how much this hurt my heart to lose such a stunning location with perfect evening sunlight, gorgeous trees, a gravel pathway, open fields for kiddos and dogs to run without being near a street; I still can’t believe it’s gone!

This beautiful family (and their precious pup) looked perfect for their fall family photos. This is the location that fall mini sessions were held in 2018, so this year we moved over to Mercer Arboretum since it’s perfectly landscaped according to the season and looks beautiful no matter the time of year.

If you’re looking for family mini sessions this year for photos to hang in your home or use to create a Christmas card, contact me! I’m going to be planning one more date for minis this year and would love to have you!

Pahl & Rogers Families | Galveston, Texas Family Photography

How absolutely adorable is this family?! They are from the Dallas area (Cleburne and Burleson) and were visiting Galveston for the weekend, so we planned their family session to take place on the beach at sunset. What better location for a photo session of your favorite people, right?

When photographing on the beach, the sunlight can be super harsh, so sessions start a tad bit later than city sessions where we have buildings, trees, and homes that can block some of the sunlight. On the other hand, because there are fewer things in our way, we also have a few minutes longer after the sunsets to squeeze a few extra photos in.

Interested in a beach session, but have questions? Message me, I’d love to help! I can help with styling, color selection, locations, etcetera. Worried about your toddler “cooperating”? Don’t worry, they don’t, haha. Toddlers don’t “cooperate”, they’re not equipped to do so. We work around them and it makes life much easier, I promise. Amber (the Mommy of the toddler in the family photos below) was also stressed about this. I’ll have an entire blog post dedicated to this topic next week! Please, don’t let something like this deter you. Family photos are SO important!

If you’ve found this post looking for mini sessions for the 2019 season, those can be found at this page. I’m offering fall minis in the Houston/Spring area, as well as tree farm minis in Manvel, Texas. Please join me, I’d love to have you!

Emsley | Spring, Texas Newborn Photographer

Sweet, perfect Emsley! This tiny munchkin was born several weeks early and spent some quality time in the NICU being monitored. She decided pretty quickly that she’d had enough! To everyone’s surprise, she ripped her feeding tube out and showed everyone she was ready to be fed! She was sent home much sooner than anyone anticipated, and we were able to do her photos at just 16 days new!

Emsley was only around 5 pounds in her photos, so she fit in the smallest of baskets and the little black outfit she was wearing was SO tiny I didn’t think I’d ever have a baby small enough to fit in it, haha! It fit her perfectly though!

While babies are best photographed between 8-12 days, sometimes things just don’t work out that way and exceptions have to be made, and that’s perfectly okay! If you’ve stumbled upon this post looking for a newborn photographer and I fit the style of photography you like, I’d love to hear from you and hear more about what you’re looking for! I offer full newborn sessions which include wrapped images in props such as buckets and baskets, as well as posed images on a beanbag with backdrops that coordinate with your home decor. I also offer wrapped mini sessions on their own too if that works better for you and your family. Both session types are done in my studio in Old Town Spring. More info on newborn pricing, as well as packages that include maternity, birth, Fresh 48, and milestone packages can be found here.

I look forward to meeting your precious little one! :)

Hunter | Baseball Minis

Sometimes, being a photographer lands you in awkward positions…like knowing evening lighting is best for photos, but having to send your kiddo off for his team baseball photos at high noon. The kiddos are faced with the sun directly in their eyes, they’re all squinting, their hats are too low on their heads to try to keep the sun from blinding them, causing their eyes to be nearly covered and dark from the shadows of the brim of their ball caps. We actually got Hunter’s team photo back and his eyes were closed!

So began the baseball portraits (not that I wouldn’t have anyway!). I knew I wanted quality, unrushed portraits that were different than the standard ones we’re usually offered. Beautiful, even sunlight, clear shots of his jersey displaying his last name and jersey number, genuine smiles (that I have to work hard for!), unique poses, and a bit of personality. This just isn’t something the photographer who photographs an entire league in one day is able to offer due to time constraints and other limitations.

If you’re interested in sports photos of your kiddo, shoot me a message! This would work well for baseball, softball, football, cheer, gymnastics, soccer, volleyball, tennis, etc. The possibilities are truly endless with what we can capture.
