home for the holidays

Last summer I got a call from someone referred by my friend Kristi, whose maternity and newborn shots I did.  Tara was well into what would be her last pregnancy and wanted to capture that special time on film.  Her family had recently relocated to Mumbai, India for her husband’s job but she came home in her third trimester to have the baby.  Well on the day of her scheduled maternity shoot, she ended up heading to the hospital instead and had baby Ryan!  At least I got to do his sweet sweet newborn photos.  A short few weeks later the whole family was back to India until Christmas. 

Fast forward several months and Tara booked a full family portrait session, just two days after the 24 hour flight back to Houston to spend the holidays here.  Twelve hours of time difference made for two extremely jet-lagged kiddos!  But the setting sun gave us gorgeous light for some beautiful photos with the Weatherwax family. Thanks SO very much, Tara and Mike!












one good family

It was a brisk fall morning when I met this fellow Moxie Mom’s family at a local Katy park.  They recently built their dream home out in Sealy, TX, which Carrie assures me is not really that far away from the conveniences of Katy.  Her two little blondies loved visiting with the ducks, but eventually we spontaneously decided to move to another nearby park for a few more shots.  I’m so glad we did, the old white houses and porch swing were a perfect setting for these family portraits. 

Carrie recently started a blog that I think has a great premise, highlighting the good people in our lives to combat all the negativity we see and hear on TV and in the news every day.  Check it out:
