Introducing Baby William

Amy and Chris finally introduced us to baby William. Just after being born the family was transferred to Switzerland and have been adjusting to life in Europe. Amy gave us a heads up that they were to be back in the states this week and scheduled them in for the new family session. William was fantastic to work with and we certainly look forward to watching him grow. The Texas flag that he is photographed with was flown at the state capital on the day he was born.

Introducing Alexia

I met Martha nearly ten years ago through the Houston Chapter of Executive Women International. She chose us to cover her wedding to Paul in 2006 and then for her maternity portraits in 2009. Now we would like to introduce you to her adorable 14 month old daughter, Alexia. She was a delight to work with and behaved extremely well for us.  Enjoy the family and individual images that show her wonderful personality.

Hyde family portraits

I have known Justin and Brandi for years. I actually knew Justin before he and Brandi had got together and he was a fresh faced young man that came down to Houston from Oklahoma, where his sister Amberly lived and to be a part of Ecclesia church. I think he must have been about 18 at the time. I was around when he first met Brandi, and you could tell that she was “the one” for him. My family even went to their beautiful wedding at South Main Baptist Church and Bammel Gardens. I remember them being so patient because my daughter Maddie was just in awe and must have asked to dance with them a million times! She thought Brandi was Cinderella 🙂

I took their first maternity portraits when Jonah was about to be born and at this time I only did fine art photography, in fact I think they were probably my first commissioned portrait! They just had their third child a few months back and Miss Betty is almost 4 and J0nah is now 6! They have also planted a church in Brenham, which started out with the two of them a few years back and now they have about 100+ members, which is quite an accomplishment. It has really been great to see their beautiful family grow.

For this portrait Brandi wanted to get some photos in the Bluebonnets. But she did not want those typical cliche bluebonnets photos, so we tried to go with something a little different. She picked out an awesome wardrobe and we grabbed a couple of vintage chairs from Casa de Hyde on the way out. She actually did the scouting for me and we came to this great, secluded field in Chappell Hill. There was a little climbing of fences involved. I had actually driven through the area the weekend before and was AMAZED to see the bluebonnets and wildflowers along the side of the road. It was truly awesome! I was even more amazed to see the sheer amount of people pulled over on the side of the road taking photos! I have lived in Texas most of my life, and I have made this drive many times, but I guess I missed out on bluebonnet season. Now I can say I know what all the fuss is about! In our field there was not a plethora of photographers, but there was one lonely painter going at it with his oils!

Anyway, I really want to thank you guys for choosing me to document these times in your life. You have one awesome family and it has been an honor.

Jacki’s family session

Jacki came to us through an auction item we donated to Beth Yeshurun Day School. Turns out we had met her 6 and a half years ago or so at a Melissa and Andrew’s wedding where low and behold, she was due with, you guessed it, twins! Jacki and Bill purchased the gift certificate for an updated family portrait session. The threat of thunderstorms held off and we were able to work with them at Hermann Park. The family was great to work with and as always, the only problem we ever want our clients to have is too many wonderful choices!

Wyatt’s child portrait

Both his parents and I had an interesting time finding parking at Hermann Park that day. Let’s see Spring Break, St Patrick’s Day and half off at the Zoo. Zoo would be the key word regarding getting into the park not to mention actually finding a spot. I digress. Moving forward, how can you not love a face like this? Wyatt was so much fun to work with. We began over at the Japanese Gardens and quickly captured some of the entire family before his attention expired which is to be expected with an eighteen month old. At that point we just encouraged Wyatt to explore and try to not wonder off too far. Afterward we explored the Western section of the park to see what else could occupy his attention. Enjoy!

I first met Shawn and Trey at Krystal and Ryan’s wedding back in 2004 where Trey was a groomsmen. Two years later we were covering their wedding in Cypress. We ran into them again at another client’s wedding just before Hurricane Ike and Shawn was very pregnant with Wyatt. They are now expecting another child this summer and cannot wait to for the next addition to the family.

Introducing Baby Calliope Danger

Introducing baby Calliope Danger! That’s right her middle name really is Danger, so you all better watch out when she gets older :))

She is such a cutie, all soft and sweet, just like a baby should be. And look at those eyes! I visited Clear Lake to get some photos of this little lady with her mama and papa’s home. I had taken photos of her while still in utero in the studio with mama Mary a few months back.

In any case, welcome to the world little one! You are adorable 🙂
