We took this beautiful little girl to do her 9 month session at a pumpkin patch.  I knew that F’s mom would have this girl styled perfectly!!  She did not disappoint!!   This 9 month old session at a pumpkin patch was spectacular, colorful and fun!!

We started the session with getting some close ups..  she has the most beautiful blue eyes and I wanted to make sure we captured them up close!

Then it was time for an outfit change and have her sit in the middle of the pumpkins.  There is so much color and vibrancy in a pumpkin patch.  It is important to think of locations when planning your session.  Since we were planning a 9 month session, we decided to choose the pumpkin patch to symbolize the time of year she was turning 9 months.

TMHS Cheerleader Session

We headed into downtown Tomball because I knew there would be tons of different locations.  I wanted N to have a lot of variety and choices.

We had so much fun!!  We got some locations in a field and by the barn.  The lighting was perfect this evening.

We then ventured over onto Main Street.  Main Street has some cute boutiques that make a perfect backdrop.  I knew this spot would make her cheer uniform pop!!

Also on Main Street, there is an amazing old bank vault.  Both sides of this old bank vault are so unique and extraordinary.  One side has an old rusted door that is a must photo spot!  The other side has some amazing steps.   I love taking pictures at this spot.

The last shot for the evening was my favorite, the glitter shot.  I knew N would look so cute blowing glitter with her uniform.

All in all, it was a perfect session for a beautiful girl!!

When J’s mom called me she told me she wanted to take some newborn photos with family keepsakes, I knew this was going to be a special session.

Mom said that they wanted to capture J with things that were meaningful to both parents.   I loved this idea because it was something they would cherish forever.

It was important to them to show their culture, special places, a significant number, a wedding rosary and wedding rings in their photos.

newborn session with family keepsakes

I love how we incorporated a rosary from their wedding and their wedding rings with sweet baby J.   They wanted the keepsakes to be what you saw when you looked at this picture.

Her dad lived in Hawaii, he wanted to show his love for this magnificent state.  He picked the keepsakes that would help symbolize this.

Mom had a special number 22; the year she was born, the day this baby was born, and a number for her sports.  She had collected shirts that she wanted us to use for photos.  It is a great idea to incorporate a newborn session with family keepsakes to symbolize important things for the parents.

Lastly, the family dog was to be used in these photos.  They wanted to show baby J how much he also loved her.   This dog was a great sport and just posed on the bed with the three of them.

Little C did not disappoint with his Happy 1st Birthday session.  He was such a happy boy, full of wonder and amazement.   Mom & Dad wanted to get some pictures of him smiling with the number one..  That was an easy shot that we got right away.

Then mom brought the Aggie hat they have used in every photo shoot.   He wanted the hat next to him, not on his head.  With one year olds, it’s sometimes better to let them do some stuff they want instead of making them upset.

Then the cowboy hat came out..  Can you say total cuteness???  I adore the image of little C where he is tipping his hat, quite the lil’ cowboy!

He also loved, loved, loved his cake!!  It made this Happy 1st Birthday session be just perfect!!  His mom brought the cute polka dot tie to match his cake.   It just helped make the session more complete.

It was a joy helping make C’s Happy 1st Birthday session special!

The lipstick was surely not planned, but sometimes when getting your picture made is not working out, we will try different things to put a smile on a face.   Timing is so important for little ones;  after a nap, after they are fed and when they are feeling good.  We planned this session around all of this but sometimes things don’t go as planned!!   Lipsticks and little girls turned this photo shoot around!!

Mom also wanted to get some images of her precious girl with a her vintage baby stroller and some of her at a tea party with her giant stuffed bunny.

karsyn2Little K had such a fun time drinking kool-aid from her tea set and sharing it with her bunny.  She then took her baby bunny for a walk…  It was so cute watching her reactions and conversations with her bunny.   I love the expressive looks she gave me, her big brown eyes are so soulful.   Even though the session started out a bit rocky at first, the bright tube of shiny pink lipstick turned things around quickly!!

When I captured this amazing image of these two, I just fell in love with it.  I even told my husband..  “Gosh, I wish we had gotten a picture like this when I was pregnant with our three”.  I know this will be one image that they will look back and feel the joy, happiness and love that this precious baby was bringing to their life.

Let me tell you a little about this mom, she is the most stylish and beautiful momma there is.   She is always dressed to the nines, hair & makeup are perfect and her personality is just as beautiful.

She came to this session in the cutest cheetah print with her infamous high heels.  She did not disappoint!!  Dad showed up in this vest suit and he was just as dapper.   Mom in her heels, dad in his cowboy boots..

I especially loved the photo we took with the two pairs of boots, babies and dads, and mom’s heels with the words, THE BLUMS.   I can’t wait to meet this precious little boy.  I know he will be so loved!!

newborn session in a field

When we captured this image, it took my breath away.   Such a peaceful baby angel.   We got moms vision, a newborn session in a field.

We then took out the other props we wanted to use.   We captured some images with pearls that were moms, quilt that grandma had made and tons of bows that mom had bought.   Between all her bows and mine, we had a grand time dressing up sweet baby L.  We were able to capture some while she was awake, then mom fed her and we got her to sleep.  I love having both awake and sleeping photos of newborns.

Then the piece of resistance came out…  Mom had a crown of flowers made.  The beautiful crown was filled with fresh flowers and smelled divine!!  I think we both swooned when we put the crown on her.   She was breathtaking!!

Doesn’t she look absolutely stunning?    She is truly a gift from above.

Newborn Sessions are so special.   I work hard to get you some images that you will just swoon over and will look back in years and cherish.

A cake smash is the perfect way to celebrate a one year old birthday!!   It’s such a special birthday celebrating all the milestones from the first year.

At these sessions we start out taking photos that mom and dad want to make sure we capture before we start the cake smash .   Mom had a list of photos that she knew wanted to capture.  We started out with family photos, pictures of J with balloons, J playing and mom had a special shirt made for this special birthday.

Cake Smash

After we made sure we had all those special pictures…  THE CAKE CAME OUT…

I have noticed that sometimes kids are a little shy about sticking their fingers in their own cake.  J started out just looking at the cake, he wasn’t sure what to do with it.   Mom had to help him taste the frosting so he would know how much yummy sweetness was sitting in from of him.   Once we got him to finally explore his cake, it was all fun from there on out.   Not only did he eat the cake, but he played with the frosting, tried to re-frost the cake, and got it all over him from head to toe.

Cake Smash in Tomball, TX

I absolutely adore celebrating the special #1 with a cake smash.   Its a fun, sticky and special shoot!!

Senior Guy Photographer in Cypress, TX

I always start the session asking them about what they do in high school, what their plans are for next year and if they are ready for the next chapter in their life.   I love talking to senior guys about what the future holds for them and what they want to do.  These sessions quick become fun for them.   We end up just chatting about life .. I think having a son of my own helps put them at ease.

I also notice that guys always want to give me their serious face.  At first I let them do what they feel most comfortable with.  I don’t want them to pressure them and have them not want to be photographed.   Once I feel like they are comfortable, the smiles come out.   This adorable senior wanted to keep giving me his serious face.   Once i saw his gorgeous smile, I had him to one serious and one smile photo for each take.   I don’t think he realized what a gorgeous smile he had.   K has a bright future ahead of him..  he’s personable, kind, smart & handsome!  There are great things in store for him.

One thing we knew we wanted for this session was to have pictures that were different from her friends.  She wanted her photos to be unique and different.   It’s so hard sometimes with everyones busy schedules to find a date, time and location.   Its best to plan Senior pictures early in your senior year before the year gets crazy.

Senior Beauty in local park in Tomball, TX

One of my favorite shots is capturing laughter.   Sometimes I get genuine laughter by just being a bit goofy.  Sometimes I get mom to make her senior laugh, other times I have to just tell them to laugh.   That alone will generate a “are you crazy” look but it usually ends in laughter.   This is always one of the parents favorite shots.  I think it reminds them of their kids when they were little.

Senior Beauty in park in Tomball, TX

We picked a local, out of the way park for this session because we thought it would give us just enough variety and would make her pictures different and standout among her peers.
