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: http://onegoodperson.blogspot.com/

expectations

My friend Sara is not new to motherhood or pregnancy, but she wears it well.  The love she has for her family and her saviour are visibly evident, and she definitely had that maternal glow during this third pregnancy.  I was thrilled to be able to capture that glow during the last few days before baby Toben arrived…she certainly didn’t look ready to give birth any day!  These were shot on a Friday morning and she predicted he would arrive by Wednesday the following week…and Wednesday it was.  I really think that women are most beautiful when they are expecting, even if they don’t feel it.

love is in the house

Portrait photography is a lot of fun, but I also enjoy doing some event photography from time to time. Back in May I met a lovely woman at one event I was capturing who asked for my card and later called to hire me for her own event. Her husband was a pastor at a local church called Lively Hope Missionary Baptist church in nearby Simonton. They were hosting a dinner at the Weston Lakes Country Club in Fulshear in honor of their senior minister who had undergone some major health trials recently and faithfully perservered, shepherding his flock and blessing the Lord all the while. I don’t know the details, but as I understood it, he faced death and God the physician healed him. The evening started out as a normal banquet would, as a calm pleasant evening, but ended up in a spirited, worshipful party of prayer and praise. It was a blessing to me as a witness.

It was also a challenge to photograph, as it took place indoors at night, requiring flash. Ask any experienced photographer and they will tell you that African-american skin and all it’s many tones is difficult to capture correctly. I asked the Lord for help and did my best, and here’s a little video of the resulting images. Click on the photo to see the video.

celebrating one year

First babies get all the photos, right?  Not necessarily.  I was thrilled with a fellow Moxie Mom of Katy asked me to photograph her younger child, by herself, to celebrate her first birthday.  This fiery redhead was already toddling all over the place and loved to ham it up for the camera.  She has “star” written all over her.  Mom told me she also appreciated some of the more serious, monochrome types of portraits, so the challenge was not getting little C to smile, it was capturing her NOT smiling.  She was truly a happy little girl.  Enjoy!

and now for something a little different

I met Gabriella at the Interactive Strategies Conference in downtown Houston this fall.  The IS Conference was aimed at marketing professionals, but I was very interested in the topics and lucky me, the company Pitch Engine sponsored my ticket to attend.  Gabriella is a talented marketing guru who is newly working as an independent consultant and was interested in learning more about marketing through social media.  When she found out I was a portrait photographer she immediately asked if I could do some headshots.  I told her I hadn’t really done that before, but I was willing to give it my best effort.  It didn’t hurt that I had a beautiful subject to work with!

Precious baby W

Referrals are a lovely way to meet new customers because it tells me that someone was happy enough with their photos to pass my name on to one of their friends.  In the case of baby W, his momma just happened to be the sister of the momma with those two cuties in my previous post.  I got to explore a new part of Houston I’d never been to before, Garden Oaks, to find Jessica’s house.  They have trees!  This is something we are not used to in the newly developed ranch and prairie lands of South Katy.  Thankfully some lovely glass french doors let plenty of warm light into the living room for me to capture this adorable boy and his chubby cheeks and toes I’d like to eat.

two adorable towheads

Summer has kept me VERY busy with photoshoots, so I have several new blogposts in the works.  First I am delighted to share some images of two of the most adorable children I’ve ever met.  Brother and sister are only 15 months apart, both with a wonderful sense of curiousity about the world around them.  Big brother was happy to show me his shades and how “cool” he looked, but little sis was not sure about me at all.  Only the ducks at South Lake Village in Cinco Ranch could make her smile.  That and having daddy throw her up in the air! 

Enjoy the cuteness!
