Maternity | Natural Light | German + Jessica

          Meet first time parents Jessica and German (aka "G" by the people who would embarrass themselves trying to properly pronounce his name--like yours truly). I finally got to meet these two after a couple of bad weather cancellations and we couldn't have asked for a better evening! Jessica looked STUNNING and G looked like he belonged on the pages of a high fashion magazine IN.EVERY.SINGLE.SHOT. He even knew what to do with his hands--men never know what to do with their hands in photos! It was impressive. The real star, though, was his gorgeous wife and that bump! Also, Kudos to her for bravely changing outfits deep in the woods surrounded by giant spiders--you would've seen a half naked pregnant lady simultaneously crying and streaking through the woods if that had been me! ;) These two are crazy about each other and you can see it in their photos and especially in the way G looks at Jessica. Swooning. Emma Lucia is the name of the little bun in the oven and she's guaranteed to fit right in with her photogenic parents! Congrats to these two and enjoy their session!

Maternity | Natural Light | The Miller Family

           This maternity session was such a treat! Gorgeous Ashley chose the most beautiful outfit colors for this time of the year and it so adorably accentuated her perfect little baby bump AND the weather was beyond perfection for December in Texas--you never what you're going to get this time of year. So let's see... beautiful outfits? Check! Weather? Check! A stunning family? Check check check! He didn't fall for any of my tricks that make the little ones laugh--he was too smart! Luckily, I have yet to meet a child who won't accept a few skittles in return for some smiles and after an entire bag, he was as silly and playful as you'd expect! Once his dad pulled out the football, there was no stopping him! David and Ashley are expecting another little bundle of blue so it looks like this momma will be spending many a Saturday at a ball field! David, Ashley and big brother Landon are picture perfect, literally, so enjoy this featured session!

Family | Natural Light | The Stansberry Family

        Meet Jessie, Craig, Braden and Quinn. Couldn't you just squeal at how beautiful they are?! This was actually a pretty rare 8:00 am morning session and we really lucked out because there were just enough clouds in the sky keeping that bright morning sun at bay while we quickly snapped a few photos in the open field. It was also bitterly cold and crazy windy but  the show went on because these folks were serious troopers! Plus, the wind gave me some great hair shots to work with! I mean, c'mon, Jessie has a head full of hair that movie stars would envy! Craig played baseball for the San Diego Padres (how cool is that?!) and Jessie is as golden as they come. Together, they make the sweetest couple and produce the most gorgeous children! Holy moly are their children cutie pies! Jessie also happens to be the author of an extremely popular mommy blog that you may have heard of called Berry Sweet Baby. I've had the pleasure and honor of photographing this family since 2012 and it has been such a treat getting to know them and being front row as their family grows (literally!). I'm still hoping for one more chance to photograph a Stansberry newborn, but we'll see what the future holds! ;) Enjoy this session and don't forget to turn on the music if you'd like while browsing! 

Family | Natural Light | The Hangartner Family

                  Meet Jarod, Hayley and Davis! First of all, take a moment and get your swooning out of the way for little Davis. Those eyes just pierce your soul, don't they?! This kid is one energetic little ham and it's always so much fun photographing him! This was my second time to photograph this family. Last time we had a session, Davis was still crawling! Time just flies by...but like the first session, he wasn't the least bit shy no matter how close I got to his handsome little face with my giant lens. He was also so sweet to his pretty momma...and If you can believe it, Hayley is actually pregnant (doesn't she look fantastic?!) and she won't be outnumbered for long! A beautiful baby GIRL will be arriving in early 2015 and she will surely be spoiled rotten! Congrats to the Hangartner family--just one more amazing family I get to watch grow up before my very eyes! Enjoy this session and don't forget to turn on the music if you'd like to hear a sweet tune while you browse! 

Family | Natural Light | The Penchan + Smith Families

          Meet Mary and her two amazing daughters, Lindsay and Becky. Both of her daughters are beautiful, super sweet, super smart and extremely successful women. WHAT'S YOUR SECRET MARY? Kudos to Mary and the late Mr. Smith on a job well done! Lindsay is a dentist so if you're looking for one, she comes HIGHLY recommended. Proof that beautiful women can also have brains! She is married to super fun, super sweet Hal, so she is now a Penchan. Together, they welcomed Adley--yes, that baby with the most outrageous eyes/eyelashes you've ever seen! Adley's cousin, Tres--yes, that toddler with the most outrageously perfect hair you've ever seen, belongs to gorgeous Becky! I may or may not be slightly jealous of her physique! Anyways, Tres is ALL BOY and let me tell you right now... girls, that kid is a future heart breaker! Heck, he's a current heart breaker! Do you see the way he looks into that camera? I adore this family! These were taken at White Rock Lake at sunset and it was a spectacularly pretty evening! Enjoy the session!

Family | Client's Home | The Martin Family

        Meet the Martin men and their leading lady, Janell. Mom and dad have their hands full being boy parents to 3 sweet little dudes, but in a matter of months, these boys will be welcoming a new, strange looking species into their lives. This thing will be wearing a bow and possibly something pink because after 3 boys, JANELL IS HAVING A GIRL!  I wish I could be a fly on the wall in this household as the boys adjust to life with their new baby sister. Although, I must say, these 3 boys were so sweet and gentle. Janell could have 5 more if they were all like these sweethearts! This session was extra fun and unique because we took these in the backyard of their BEAUTIFUL new home--not kidding, the house is STUNNING and they had just moved in a week prior to our session! Super mom award, anyone? The boys were all so relaxed and comfortable in their own environment and that always makes my job so much easier! Congrats to this beautiful family on their new home and a new llittle thing called a girl!
