Finley & Lydia | Watermelon Mini Sessions

The two could NOT be any cuter! We took these images on their grandparents ranch in Cat Spring, Texas. Finn and Lydia were SO excited about their watermelon that this session was such a breeze! We picked a location on the ranch with pretty flowers. tall grass, and gorgeous sunlight that made for the most picturesque backdrop. Sunset sessions are all I do (aside from newborns, of course) - because the light is absolutely worth it!

So thankful to these beautiful models for helping show off what I’ve got in store for Watermelon Minis this year! A super simple set up keeps the focus on the kiddos, and I’ve selected a location in Cypress, Texas that will be absolutely perfect for this session. It offers a dirt road. large, stunning trees, lots of green foliage, and a perfect sunset sky.

Monica & Toni | Houston Maternity Photographer

Monica and I worked together for several years and quickly became work besties. I knew from the first day that we’d get along well, even if our general manager thought she was too young for the position after she completed her working interview. That might be why I fought harder to keep her there, because I’d also been passed over for promotions in my early twenties because I was “too young”. I’m so glad the general manager reconsidered and agreed to giving her a chance as I gained a life-long friendship out of it!

Monica and Toni are the funniest, silliest, sweetest couple! When Monica texted me to tell me she was pregnant, I somehow knew what she was about to say before she said it, and I was SO excited for them! We started planning her maternity and newborn sessions right away, haha. We ended up changing locations as we’d initially planned to go out of town to our ranch in Junction, Texas for her session, but decided to stay local and ended up at Mercer Arboretum, which just happens to be one of my absolute favorite locations. Each time I shoot there I find a new angle, a new beloved spot, something different than the times before, and it just never gets old.

Ready to book your session? Contact me here! We’ll pick a date, I’ll help guide you in outfit selection, and we will select a location that fits your style. Together, we will create magic tailored to your vision. Want something in particular that’s unique, or different? Let me know! I look forward to hearing from you!

This gorgeous session took place at Mercer Arboretum in Humble, Texas (just outside of Spring). It has become one of my all time favorite locations! This park just has SO much to offer, and its gorgeous year round. In the fall when the flowers aren’t out as they are in the Spring, there is still plenty of picturesque foliage, and when paired with evening sunlight, it makes this place magical.

This super sweet Mama opted for a half session, which are only offered during the holiday season. It’s a perfect session for anyone not quite wanting a full hour session, but also feels like a mini session may not be enough. This unique session length yields enough images to share as soon as you get them, while still saving a few to use for Christmas gifts.

I adore absolutely everything about this session! Presley is just the most adorable little princess, for starters. I discovered that being unwrapped was not okay with her, ha! She absolutely loved being wrapped, which was perfect for the wrapped newborn mini session!

Presley’s beautiful Mommy, Mayra, and I went to high school together. It was so much fun getting to catch up with her after having not seen her for a…uh, a long time. ;) Mama selected a rustic theme, which is right up my alley as most props I purchase tend to lean toward having a rustic nature anyway. Since I was essentially given creative freedom with prop and color selection, I brought several options for this session and Mom and I picked out each set up together. Mom loved the cream and mauve, but also wanted some bright, fun colors too. I think we accomplished both! Presley also looks perfect and elegant in the burgundy and floral, too, but this beauty could pull of anything!

For this session, we were fortunate to have the most amazing windows with diffused natural light and an overcast day to keep the lighting soft and delicate. Everything turned out completely perfect for this in home, on location newborn session!

To schedule your newborn session, contact me! I’d be honored to capture this special time for you!

Lydia's First Birthday Session | Spring, TX

Lydia is one of the cutest, happiest, most cheerful little girls! She’s so beautiful and oh-so-sweet! Big brother even joined in on a few photos, complete with his best friend, Woody, in-tow! :)

Their Mommy selected Mercer Arboretum for Lydia’s first birthday photos, and it was perfect! The sunlight there is stunning, and the flowers in the Spring and Summer are gorgeous! It’s absolutely one of my favorite locations in the Houston area, located just between Spring and Humble, and is ideal for families, seniors, children, couples, and maternity.

If you’re interested in booking a session, contact me! I’d love to hear from you!
