This beautiful 2016 high school senior doesn’t have to look far for her #1 fan and supporter; she simply turns to her older sister. Both are naturally stunning, and the session went smoothly without a flaw. Lots of laughter and smiles that lit up the springtime evening. In her questionnaire she wrote that her main goals for our time together were:
I want to remember who I was Senior year, not just what I looked like. God is a huge part of my life and who I am, so I hope that shines through my photos. I am kind of introverted, but I do have a fun side that I would like to capture, so you will have to be patient with me. I want my photos to look natural and joyful. If it is possible to incorporate my sister into a couple photos. She is 20 years old and we are really, really close.
Check, check, and check… I think we did it! This coming Fall, Texas A&M will be gaining an amazing young lady and 4 years from now, when she graduates with a degree in education, there are going to be many blessed children who will have her as their teacher. Good luck and God bless you in your journey Miss K. I have no doubt you will accomplish everything you set your mind to.
This was such a fun session! Mom contacted me simply wanting some updated portraits of her sweet lil’ man, some family photo with her and her husband, and some photos with the grandparents. Fast forward to about 4 days before the session and she contacts me once more to ask a little favor. She wanted to get a few photos to make the announcement that she was expecting another baby but at the time she was just barely a few weeks along, so these photos would have to be kept on the down-low until she was further along. Well, let me tell ya, it was hard keeping this a secret. I work with the mom at Teravista Elementary and had several colleagues ask me how the photo shoot went with our fellow teacher. Oooo, I had to bite my tongue and be super vague in my responses. Not anymore! The mom finally gave me the go ahead to share, so here you go! Enjoy! I am excited to see this beautiful family welcome a new little one to their lives.
Getting the text from my clients telling me that they are new parents is so very exciting. I run in and tell my husband enthusiastically the news and he looks at me like I’m a little bit crazy. Well, ok, I get it, my clients are not my blood relatives, however, I do get to know them during our time together. We talk quite a bit before the session and during the session, and well, after the session too. So yea, I do feel like I get to know them and I am truly excited for them when I hear the news that their baby has arrived. And so was the case here. This sweet baby girl couldn’t be more perfect! She did so well during our session, sleeping like a champ and allowing me to pose her this way and that. Towards the end of our time together, she started to wake so we moved outside to get some photos with mom and dad.
Come to find out, the reason she woke up was that she was hungry! Makes me giggle when babies latch on to just about anything when it’s time to eat!
I am a little behind on blogging sessions lately, but wanted to catch up today. This beautiful maternity session happened back in March and I love seeing all the gorgeous colors in the flowers that were blooming. When Katie showed up in this stunning jewel toned burgundy dress, I knew the photos were going to be amazing. It is such a neat experience to see soon-to-be parents at their maternity session with all the unknowns and excitements of parenthood and then a few months later see them transition into being parents. Quite honestly, most move into their roles as parents with such grace and patience even though they had apprehensions before hand. We all do, it’s a part of the journey…. and what a wonderful journey it is!
