So many laughs, smiles, and memories made during this family session! It was so much fun to capture this amazing family because I go to the gym with Rachel and Hali! I think that made them super comfortable in front of the camera. It gave me the opportunity to capture their true personalities! This was the perfect time for them to update their family portraits since the kids are growing up so quickly. They are some of the sweetest and most beautiful people I have ever met as a The Woodlands Family Natural Light Photographer – inside and out!

About the Wood Family

It was very important to showcase the bond that they have with one another. So I let them be silly and just interact with one another while I took tons of pictures! You can really tell how much they all mean to one another! The best part of it all was that they had every single-family member participate – including their little dog! Their little fury friend is a big part of their life, so we couldn’t dare leave him out! It was so sweet to watch them play together, and I know it will mean a lot to them for many years to come. I can already see these being framed all around their house and bringing them many smiles!

This shoot was for DoTERRA’s (essential oils) member magazine, DoTERRA Living, that goes out to all their members. The Millers were actually selected to be featured in the magazine, and they asked me to be their photographer! What an incredible compliment and honor.
DoTERRA’s essential oils are volatile, aromatic compounds that occur naturally in seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other plant parts. They have been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices for many many years. While there are over 3,0000 varieties of essential oils, each contains its own unique and specific benefits. Each pertain to a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. Such as soothing sore muscles, helping with digestion, improving sleep, and reducing nervousness and anxiety. In fact, my aunt had introduced me to essential oils several years back, and I absolutely love them. There are so many great benefits that they can offer its unbelievable.

About this Session

The Millers were an absolute pleasure to work with. Amy and Jim are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met, and their three boys were so fun and delightful. The twin boys were just too cute and so full of energy and personality, and their big brother, Noah, was so handsome, mature, and caring for his two little brothers. They were so sweet to their mama, bringing her flowers and giving her kisses, and they loved wrestling with Dad! How fun?!!! I can definitely see why the Millers were chosen to be featured in DoTERRA’s member magazine; this family’s love for each other is so unbelievable, and as the pictures show, they are so full of life and make one great team as a family.
I am so blessed and fortunate that my passion for photography brings me to meeting and working with such wonderful and amazing families like the Millers and allows for amazing opportunities like this one. I can’t even express how blessed I am to have my work featured in magazines, such as DoTERRA’s Living Magazine, for causes and products I believe in and love myself through photos of a such a beautiful and lovely family.
What a fun family! Being the Miller family’s The Woodlands Family Photography artist was such a treat! Love those smiles!!

When I think back on this sunny session the following words come to mind: laughter, spunk, and warmth.  It wasn’t uncommon at all to hear laughter coming from either one of the kids or their fantastic parents Casey and Alyssa.  It seems like between the seven of them there’s always something funny going on.  You can tell that this family loves to be together and there have been many beautiful moments of laughter that have filled their home. Being able to document families like this and doing The Woodlands Photography is such an honor. The opportunity to spend this precious evening in the golden light of their company was such a joy.

About this session

I say spunk next because each of the kids had a unique and infectious spirit about them.  One may be more talkative than the other, and another one might have a smirk on their face you just know means something hysterical is about to happen.  Regardless of their individual differences, you know that one thing is certain – each of them has a spirit about them that pulls you in and makes you want to have them as a friend.  I think this comes from Casey and Alyssa’s big hearts for others.  Both are ER doctors who are extremely kind and always just a phone call away for me. Casey is the doctor who got me through the years of having sub-par medical insurance he was the doctor I saw when I had appendicitis.  I’ve known this family since the youngest boy was two, and have continually seen that they are all wonderful people.

I also think of warmth when it comes to this family.  Part of that is likely the natural light coming in behind their faces.  The other part though is the warmth you can feel that exists between the parents and their kids, the joy that is between each of them.  Whether it was one of the brothers looking up lovingly at his dad, or the two teen girls walking arm in arm as step-sisters-turned-friends, you can tell there’s a beautiful warm connection between this beautiful blended family.

Thanks for letting me hang out with your family and take these photos for you all.  I’m glad I’m able share my love of photography with a family that has shared so much with me.

This little guy had me cracking up throughout this entire The Woodlands Natural Light Family Photography session! I have no idea how he packs such a huge personality into such a tiny body, but I loved every sweet second I was able to spend with him and his sweet family. The fun that they so easily had with each other was such a joy to witness. I could see the pride flowing from these two little guy’s dad as he flung them into the air. I could see the love flow freely from their mommy’s heart, wrapping them up in her sweet smile.

Photography to me is an escape and an outlet. It allows me to express my creative passion, that brings a smile to the beautiful faces I capture. Hearing someone overcome with happiness as they look through the collection of images taken of their sweet family, or to see a tear quietly slip down the cheek of a new mother as she flips through the images of her brand new baby boy fills my heart with such happiness and helps me wake each morning with a smile on my face. I think the best part about this industry is the unknown. I love to sit and think about the next beautiful session I will soon have the opportunity to capture. Or the next new friendship that I will have the chance to make with my sweet clients. This life may be busy, with a booming business, two sweet kiddos, three pets and a husband who all need me. But this is my beautiful life and I adore every second that I am blessed to spend here on this sweet Earth.

North Houston Family Photographer | Rothstein Family

North Houston Family Photographer | Rothstein Family

Amanda is one of my closest friends. I have always found such sweet comfort in her friendship and such excitement as her North Houston Family Photographer. Her eldest daughter and my little Maddie are so close. I love watching them play and adventure together. My mom has a darling bench swing on her property that perfectly fits both of their sweet little selves, side by side. Oh how they love that swing! Back and forth, back and forth. If they could have it their way, they’d spend hours swinging the day away in each other’s sweet company. Knowing Maddie has a lifelong friend made in Amanda’s precious daughter touches my heart so deeply.

Easily seen from this session, Amanda has an absolutely gorgeous sense of style. As soon as she approached me about this outdoor session that was to be taken in a sweet open field, I was instantly thrilled. Not only for the great images I knew we were bound to take, but to see how she would dress the whole family! I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed! Make sure to scroll down to see the entire family’s perfectly styled outfits!  The earthy tones and boho vibe truly did make for some stunning shots.

I loved watching both of these sweet parents interact with their kiddos. The really did have so much fun together, no prompts needed! I still remember the sweet laughter that filled the air around us throughout the entire session. Seeing the love that flows so freely through this family touched my heart so deeply. There’s something so special about seeing the true beautiful personality of a family from the view of my lens. Scrolling through these pictures makes my heart so incredibly happy. I can’t wait for next time I get to share a few precious moments with this sweet friend of mine and her darling family.

Montgomery County Tx Family Photographer – O’Leary Family

Montgomery County Tx  Family Photographer – O’Leary Family

Pink sun dresses…Ruffled collars….Monogrammed initials…Could we possibly get any girlier?! How about we throw in two gorgeous little ladies, add a handsome daddy to wrap around their tiny pinkies and a beautiful mommy all dressed in white. A fairy tale you say?… I’d have to agree, but to the O’Leary family– this is simply the life they’ve been blessed with.  It’s a true joy to be able to serve my community and documenting their precious moments.  Being a Montgomery County Tx Family Photographer has also blessed me with special souls such as these.

We did one quick outfit change on the littlest princess and off we were on an adventure. Let’s take a second to stop and appreciate the earthy goodness of this field…Yum!!! Could you possibly imagine a more perfect tree-lined path, with more perfect lighting for a more perfect family?! I’m beginning to see a trend here..  we took to the wide open fields of Montgomery, Tx right next to Fernland Historical Park and Ransom’s Steakhouse right off of HWY 105.  Fernland is nestled right next to the Montgomery County Library and provides such a unique setting for a family portrait session.

I love playing games with the children throughout family portrait sessions. It lightens things up a bit and gets their gigglers going. My favorite game has to be having mommy and daddy lift a blanket high in the air and have the littles sprint under. (Is it just me or are you having flashbacks to Friday’s in elementary gym class??…Ohhh…Parachute day…. Best. Day. Ever.) Aaaanywho.. This game never fails to yield perfect looks of pure joy on the kiddos faces. A child at play is a truly beautiful thing to behold, don’t you think?

It was an honor getting to know and work with this family. I am so grateful for each and every one of my clients and the opportunity I get to sneak in and steal a picture of the beauty that is their world. Enjoy.

The Woodlands Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session – Stampes

The Woodlands Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session – Stampes

Talk about two beautiful boys! This family was such fun to photograph. The faces their littlest one made cracked. me. up.!!  Momma better watch out! Carter’s already got his “come and get me” look down pat! Of course, his big bro did his very best to steal the show (and I have to admit, I didn’t mind one little bit).  The personality in this one is huge!! He had me in a constant fit of giggles– Like, for real.. Too presh… This was everything I love and more with a The Woodlands Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session.  We took to their beautiful apartment off of FM 2978 and The Woodlands Parkway nestled in the back of the Woodlands, Tx.  It was a dream much like this beautiful family was <3

With a 20 minute drive to The Woodlands Mall, and Market St, The Woodlands is always such a fun and beautiful place to do pictures.  When it’s in my client’s home, it’s just all the better.

We had both of the boys all in white, with mom draped in a lovely taupe and white striped dressed, paired perfectly with her handsome hubby dressed in a gorgeous shade of dove gray. This truly beautiful family looked absolutely breathtaking while bathed in floods of perfect natural lighting…Swoon!!

This kind of lighting gives such a fresh, clean feel to the sessions. I can’t help but equate this with the feeling these two parents must be having right about now. A new baby has a tendency to do that to you. It gives you the chance at a fresh start. A new beginning. You have the great responsibility and honor to mold and shape these little humans. A life full of possibilities lie at the very tips of their ever-so-delicate fingers. And I have a feeling this world will be a more wonderful place because of these two little men.

The Woodlands Outdoor Family Photographer – Alvarez Family

The Woodlands Outdoor Family Photographer – Alvarez Family

This sweet family truly was up for anything! I was able to have so much fun getting these natural shots. While positioning families has it perks and place, I genuinely adore getting to capture the true personality of the family, in its own element. Every family has its own dynamics, identity, and style. And let me be the first to say– I am LOVING this family’s style.  Sp being a The Woodlands Outdoor Family Photographer, it was a true honor to document this special time for them!

I can’t help to think this session would be perfectly suited for Amelia Earhart, if Amelia Earhart had a big-beauti(full) family. Filled with beautiful gals, and a couple genuine dapper dans. Mom expertly decided to style the whole group in fresh white linen tops, paired perfectly with khaki bottoms. And that sunset behind them in the street?.. Oh geeze, be still my heart! This is the stuff dreams are made of guys!!

We took to Fernland Historical Park (well, really, the Montgomery, Tx fields surrounding it) for this adorable family session.  I am also super pumped to shoot their wedding at Big Sky Barn in Montgomery in 2017.  Montgomery is about a 20-30 minute drive from the Woodlands and is a classic “Texas” look.  With its big rolling plains, the founding spot of the Texas flag, and conveniently located in the middle of Conroe, The Woodlands, and Montgomery, it’s always a beautiful spot to choose from!

Of course it was amazing to see how much fun the family so obviously has together. What was truly touching though, was to see how, even after four kiddos and what I can imagine is a pretty busy life, these two have still remained lovebirds. I have no question that life is going to be chalked full of fun, love and laughter for this beautiful family and am nothing short of honored to be able to know the Alvarez family.

The Woodlands Family Photography Outdoors – Farris Family

The Woodlands Family Photography Outdoors – Farris Family

Time is frustratingly fleeting; an unstoppable, insensitive force that moves at lightning speed–Ready or not, here it comes… This is why I treasure and genuinely love my career as a The Woodlands Family Photography Outdoors professional. I get the rare opportunity to beat the tedious march that is time. While it is a never ending reality that minutes, hours, days, and weeks will tick consistently away, these pictures will always serve as a reminder to these new parents of some of the best days of their lives.

This beautiful family is so near and dear to my heart. I have had the honor of working with Eurri in the past. I’ve watched her go from blushing bride, to expectant mother, and have seen her turn into a truly amazing mommy. The transition into this period of her life was such a beautiful thing to behold. No one can explain what it feels like to become a parent, but it’s quite obviously parenthood was obviously well suited for these two beautiful souls.

We shot this session in Alden Bridge Park in The Woodlands.  With a 15 minute drive from my studio in Conroe, a 10 minute drive to the Woodlands Mall, this is quickly becoming a favorite location of mine!

Eurri, being a photographer herself, was such a delight and pleasure to work with. It was a treat to steal little snippets of time and document them for the Farris family. One of my favorite shots was Emma’s daddy launching her in the air. Her feet were fast, but I was faster!!  It’s a humbling experience to have a close friend trust you with such a precious task. For all the people who have placed this faith in me, thank you. Genuinely. Thank you. I can promise you I will never take that honor for granted.
