This sweet family of three will be four soon! You may remember them from last year's photo shoot. Can you believe it's been a year since then? Enjoy your preview, and I can't wait to show you the rest!

So adorable! The Woodlands, TX, family photographer

Oh, my. This little cutie was such a doll. When I walked up, she ran straight to me and gave me a hug. I think she could sense that I'm a momma and have my own 2-year-old baby girl. Thanks so much, and I can't wait to show you your gallery, Grandma!

the sweetest smiles; Houston and The Woodlands, TX, family photographer

What a wonderful way to end a busy weekend. These cuties and I had such fun in the park running around coming up with ideas for shots. These are just a few of my many favorites.

father and daughter photo shoot; Houston and The Woodlands, TX, family photographer

So, I have to admit something. I got a little emotional on this shoot today of this lovely young lady and her father when I took this shot. I guess I'm just so used to running around chasing toddlers all day, so this became a very quiet and relaxing shoot. I was able to really look at her through a parent's eye and see that she's on the cusp of become a young woman, and it pulled at my heart a little. Thank you both for a wonderful shoot.

holiday family photo; Houston and The Woodlands, TX, family photographer

This sweet girl was the star of the show--as every two-year-old girl is--but I think this first one would be a beautiful family holiday card, momma!

I am loving these brown eyes.


Such a sweet family. I love how this big sister is looking after her brother. Thanks for a great shoot!

big blue eyes; Houston and The Woodlands, TX, family photographer

Oh, how I love these big blue eyes! Thanks for a great shoot, sweet family. Enjoy your preview!

before and after; Houston & The Woodlands Family Photographer, Memorial Park

I am a photographer who happens to have two degrees in education. I love kids. I love working with kids. So, this first picture is a "before and after" of sorts. The one on the left is the very first image of the shoot, and the one on the right is the very last. Her expression on the left totally cracks me up. Think she's just a little skeptical? But by the end, we were buds. I LOVE my job!

Love this one. I love the soft lighting. It reminds me of a fairy tale.

So lovely.

two lovely ladies; Houston family photographer

These two lovely ladies and I had a great Sunday afternoon together at Discovery Green in Houston. There was a family festival going on with kayaking and giant bubbles and lots of bouncy houses. Amidst all of the craziness which had little Tate here very excited, we were able to get some lovely pictures of the two of them. Enjoy your preview, and thanks for a fun afternoon!

the cutest boys; The Woodlands, TX family photographer

You may remember this sweet family from last year. They've had a new addition since then, and he is just as cute as his big brother, who, by the way, did a fantastic job with letting me chase him around in order to get some pics. I am in love with the one of the boys together, and I have several great ones of those for you, momma.

 Momma, I know this probably isn't one you'd normally choose, but I think it's so stinkin' cute. Big Brother is gently leaning in to grab "James," his toy train, and I can almost hear him thinking, "Yeah, dude...I'm just gonna go ahead and get this train out of your way before that drop of drool ruins it. Thanks."

sweet brother and sisters; Houston family photographer

This little guy and his sisters were so sweet today. We had a great time getting into all sorts of fun in Memorial Park. Thank you for a great day, sweet family. I can't wait to show you the rest!

the beautiful people; The Woodlands, TX family photographer

Is she a doll, or what? Even her teeny tiny fingernails are perfectly painted. Love, love, love. Thanks for a perfect shoot, mom and dad. See you soon!
