Family Time: Cortez

A perfect Fall session with one of my awesome KHP families. This family’s sense of fun and adventure makes my job so enjoyable. They played in the backyard, strolled around the lake, and hopped in the Jeep for a ride back home — and I enjoyed capturing every minute of it! We also made sure that their new & furry family member had her picture taken as well. These beautiful kids are growing up so quickly! Thanks so much Cortez family – always love my time with your lovely family! xoxo

Here’s a sneak peek at what their Family Time looks like.

At Home: The Mays

When Mica asked me for a last minute “moving” shoot of her family, I jumped at the opportunity. It was the last Friday that their family would play and sleep in their beautiful home in West University. She wanted to capture images at home before the moving trucks arrived to pack up all of their belongings into cardboard boxes. No posed portraits, just hanging out with each other and letting the kids play and eat ice cream.

It was such an honor to capture these simple and sweet moments of their last family time in this house. Here’s just a little peek at my time with them.

Featured: The Little Umbrella

Hey There! I’m excited to share some fun news with you! I recently photographed a beautifully styled birthday party for Mica May’s lovely daughter. I’m so delighted to see those images of Madelyn’s ‘Paint Shoppe’ Birthday Party featured today on The Little Umbrella. I have visited this cute site (previously called On To Baby) so many times for baby shower inspiration! Come on over and check out the feature here and view the full gallery of images here.
