When people ask me what I do for a living, I get to say “photographer”. I feel really lucky to do what I do, but “photographer” doesn’t even sum it up; I get to spend time with the most wonderful families, and also hear the stories of their various journeys and milestones. I get to design sessions, and document some of life’s most amazing moments. Families like this one really make my job so meaningful. Dutch’s mama says, “The arrival of this happy little boy was a total game-changer. I was told I couldn’t conceive without medical interventions, but God had other plans. He’s our amazing miracle, and brings us all a lot of joy. He’s very interested in everything, and full of life”.

Dutch is such a cute and unique name for him, and he is a very happy little boy, indeed. I had a ton of fun capturing his six month milestone session. My go-to for my indoor sessions is this bed decked out in white bedding. It looks so clean, fresh, and simple, and really complements the natural light that fills my studio. It gives my clients a light, airy, and modern look that they love. Dutch is wearing one of the little sitter outfits from my curated collection (romper via Indigo and Lace). I tend to steer towards simple, organic, and neutral colors to really bring out the personalities in my littlest clients. Mom adds, “Dutch enjoys being outdoors, animals, and his favorite toys. He also loves eating, and his face always lights up when his dad or sisters walk in the room.”

There was never a dull moment with this sweet couple. We had so much fun on our shoot! There’s something so calming about the woods, and everyone was relaxed and comfortable. That makes for the best sessions, and we laughed and laughed the whole time! It was wonderful getting out into nature, and in between shots we talked about their likes and dislikes, their favorite things about each other, and their absolute love for fajitas. Alan and Brittany have been dating for three years, and will begin their married life in March of next year. They’re both people of great character, and that reflects in their favorite things about each other: For Brittany, her favorite things about Alan is “the way he looks at me, and the love he gives me.” She also loves his dedication to honesty. For Alan, his favorite things about Brittany are “how much she cares for me, and loves me unconditionally”. Plus, he loves how much she values loyalty.

It was so easy to get some great shots of the couple. For one thing, they look so cute together, that any picture I took was a great one. For another thing, the landscape was so nice, and all the colors played so well together that I didn’t have to do much extra work. Some of the pictures of Brittany and Alan reminded me of those classic romance movies. They’d know a lot about that, being movie buffs themselves! They each have their favorite genre, his being action, and hers being scary. But it all works out well, since they like the same things, and hate the same things. They’re two peas in a pod!

We all had so much fun during our session. It’s always so wonderful seeing a couple that are truly in love, and can’t get enough of each other! It makes me value my job all the more. I wish them all of the love and happiness there is, as they begin to spend the rest of their lives together in bliss. Congrats you two!

Ayden Izaiah means “little fire” and “God’s salvation”…this little guy has some pretty  awesome parents, and they named him astutely! Ayden made his grand arrival weighing 8 lbs, 14 ounces. He was twenty inches long, and was eagerly welcomed home by his mom, dad, and big sister Adalynn. “It’s very rewarding being a mom, and since Ayden has arrived, my life has been filled with watching him grow and the many daily changes”, shares mom, “It’s really rewarding because we were unable to experience this with my daughter. My husband was deployed and wasn’t able to return home until she was already 7 months old. I was able to capture her memories with a camera, but this is really rewarding.” Mom spent lots of time carefully preparing his little nursery, and says it has lots of soft yellows, greens, and browns, and little woodland creatures in the decor. It sounds adorable, just like him!

Big sister Adalynn loves being a sibling, and mom adds, “She loves the thought of having a brother to look after, and teach to read and play soccer. she loves holding him and giving mommy a break here and there!” We were able to capture some beautiful images of big sis and little brother together (scroll all the way down to view). This little guy was beyond perfect; so sweet, so cuddly, and adorable. I really have the best job ever, because it is so rewarding to capture the memories for every parent that walks through my door.

This sweet family was really great to work with, and they were the perfect clients, in spite of the very humid and hot weather
we were having. This is the Sanchez Family…mom and dad are wonderful people, and their three children are very happy
little ones. They enjoyed interacting with one another, and just being themselves. I always love capturing families like this,
and capturing their priceless memories. Taking family photos is a lot of work, I know, especially if you have little children. But I cannot stress enough the importance of taking yearly family photos (or every six months). That’s why mini sessions are the perfect, affordable option.

It is only July, but it is never too early to think ahead to the busy holiday season and the images you will want for your
christmas or holiday cards! It’s hard to believe, but I already am nearly booked for these sessions, and there are just a few
dates left! Here are my available dates for my Fall and Holiday Mini Sessions. Spots are extremely limited, so be sure to
contact me ASAP!


Upcoming Mini Sessions:

Saturday, October 14 (location is a field with flowers)
Saturday, October 21 (a beautiful white front porch)
Sunday, October 29 (Broussard Farm – Beaumont)

Session fee: $150.00+tax
(a retainer fee to book $50.00 and then the balance due one week prior to session)
Contact me via Facebook message to reserve your spot!

“The most precious jewels you will have around your neck are the arms of your children.”

Scout has quickly become one of my favorite babies. She was so calm in her session, which was so fun and went by like a breeze. This little one was full of smiles, which was great for me since her smile was such a pretty thing to capture. Scout looks so cute in purple, and I loved how the colors coordinated so well in the shoot. Scout likes to be active – as active as a baby can be – and loves to swing outside. She loves her sister Sidney too, and her older sibling likes to read to Scout, and play babies with her. They are very affectionate, giving each other lots of hugs and kisses every day! Just 13 months apart, the sisters are already best friends.

Scout has such a sweet personality, and she adapted to whatever her surroundings were with glee. Her smile was infectious, and it quickly spread to her mom and I. She loved the pail we put her in, and the soft sheets of the bed played well against her soft skin. When she was in the pail, I set up the shot to coordinate with her complexion and her hair. The darker purple and the tan cloth underneath tied everything together in one neat, colorful bow. But some of my favorite pictures were of Scout in front of the solid background. Having just one color behind her, it accentuated her own textures, and brought your attention to her gorgeous eyes. Overall, all of us were very happy with the session!

Milestones are so important to capture, because for us busy parents they come and go in a blur. I have options for newborns, all the way to one year, and every event in between. Contact me here for your session today!
