This fall will be the third year that I have been blessed to photograph this family. I love working with them and gush about them every time I post. I was super excited when Casey called me to photograph their extended family at their beautiful family home in Katy, Texas.
Mom and Dad (or Grandpa and Grandma) are so cute and still clearly nuts about each other after all these years. I just love the way they are looking at each other. So very sweet! #relationshipgoals
As it turns out, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and whole family is fun! Is this a gorgeous clan or what? The weather was iffy that morning so we were challenged with a group of adorable littles and attempting to get them to all look the same direction as well as the fighting the humidity and threat of Mother Nature. We had a window of about 15 minutes before the rain came but managed to get some great photos!
After the rain started to fall we went inside and tried to get the littles to sit on the couch for a group pose. They were not having any of it but I think this photo is absolutely adorable. They need to recreate this exact shot when they are in their late teens or early twenties don’t you think? It makes me giggle.
Thank you as always Casey! Can’t wait for your family session in a couple of weeks!
Everything is coming up babies these days and I love it! If you’ve been around here for a while you may remember Rachel & Chad from their wedding and more recently, their maternity photos. I’ve shared some fun stories of little Rachel when she was a member of one of my Girl Scout Troops and the fun times we had.
There have been 5 troop babies born this year so my Facebook feed is full of sweet little faces and tired, but happy Mommies & Daddies. It fills my heart every time I scroll.
Rachel, Kelsey & my oldest daughter, Stacie, still hang out as much as they can. All three have had babies in the last 12 months.
Rachel and Stacie are 2 days apart and whatdya know…Jakobi & my newest wee one, Sarai, are only 3 days apart! That’s just so exciting! We attempted to do their newborn photos together but Sarai was not having any of it. I will try again soon to get some good photos of her but in the meantime….you’ll just have to “ooooo” and “ahhhhhh” after Mr. Jakobi’s handsome little self!
Welcome to the world little man! Thank you for the good snuggles. I’m already excited about your next session!
Babies, babies….babies everywhere. Love it! I mean, who doesn’t just love these adorable little faces? The blog is being taken over by babies and bellies these days and I’m not complaining one bit! Little Miss Kendall was quite the ham at her 9 month photo shoot splish slashing around in her birthday suit.
One of my favorite things about photographing her, besides her little bubbly smile and smile is all of the cute head bands and bows her Mom has. She never tries to take them off either. Little Missy here is quite the little Princess. I just love it!
She is such a ham she literally made us laugh out loud as I was snapping away. Happy and smiley should be her middle names. In the August heat in Texas who wouldn’t be happy splashing around in an old tub?
I wish I could take credit for this adorable set-up but I can’t. It was her Mom, Kelsey’s idea. It was perfect! I may have to borrow this set-up someday myself. We are already planning her 1 year cake smash session. I’m sure her Mom will have all sorts of cute & creative ideas. I’m already counting the days!
How absolutely adorable is this precious newborn? Little Keegan was quite the squirmy fellow during his newborn photo session but I didn’t mind one bit I mean..just look at him. He looks like such a little man. And his name….love love love his name!
His photo session was held at his Mumzy & Paw Paw’s home in Montgomery, Texas and if you’ve ever seen two grandparents completely wrapped around one little finger…these two are! Most especially his Paw Paw. Mom is smitten as well and between the Grands and Auntie I think she just might get to hold him occassionally. *giggles*
Time to stop cooing over this little cutie and introduce baby Keegan. Enjoy!
These two! They are just so darn cute. Byron is one of my oldest and dearest online…turned real life friends that the internet has gifted me with over the years. Kelly is his sweet, beautiful bride. I don’t get to spend near enough time with these two. Personally I think we need 36 hour days and 3 day weekends don’t you?
Kelly loves to sew. She makes absolutely beautiful quilts and more! She was recently awarded Teacher of the Year at Grangerland Intermediate. I’m sure her students and co-workers will miss her as she also retired at the end of the year.
Over the years I have watched these two weather storm after storm, from health issues to the loss of family members and just about anything else life can throw at you. They have always come through on the other side shining bright with smiles on their faces.
They are currently going through the fight of their lives as Kelly is battling cancer for the 4th time. She is a fighter. She is strong. Her smile and strength are contagious. They are strong and their faith and love for each other is palpable.
I was honored to do this photoshoot for them and for the gift of being able to document their story and their love.
Keep fighting you two! You’ve got this!
All my love,
It’s hard to believe this little cutie is already 6 months old! Six months old and a complete ham. She is so happy, smiley and was little Miss Priss in her first tutu lovingly made just for her by her Mommy, Kelsey. I have no doubt that by the time this lil cutie is a year old she’s going to be a little model. Love, love, love it!
