houston family photographerAbout me…
  • I’m a wee bit of a DIY addict. My husband and I have tackled some beyond crazy remodeling in our 12 years together.
  • I really do not know how I lived without my iPhone.
  • I can get easily distracted.
  • Spending time at the fabric store or the plant store will always put me in the best of moods.
  • I love vanilla cake and ice-cream.  Man oh man, I seriously could eat them daily.  But I don’t.
  • Far too often what makes complete sense in my head comes out verbally like I’m basically delirious.
  • My vice is chai tea.  I’m an addict.  It makes me so happy.
  • Audio books have become one of my new favorite things.
  • I hate exercise, but I do it because well, I’m almost 40 and I have a 3 year old and need to keep up with him. ha!
  • I believe you should only have things in your home that you love or the things that help you do what you love. Get rid of everything else.
  • I really enjoy sewing.
  • I’m not very good at following directions.
The beginning…

I grew up in the most quaint town in Texas with the most incredible family and community a girl could ever ask for. Later went on to get my B.S. degree from Sam Houston State, because well, that is what you do right? 😉 Moved to the big city of Houston on my own a got my first ‘job’. Met and married my amazing husband. Worked in recruiting (my first ‘calling’) for seven years. I loved the work, the company I worked for and was pretty darn good at my job. I thought I would do it forever. After a trip to New York City in 2009 and a new dslr camera, I took up photography as a side business. I mean, who does photography full time? At least this was my thinking at the time. By 2011, my ‘side job’ was taking up more time than ever. On a leap of faith, I left my recruiting career to pursue my family photography business ‘officially’ full time, which had become full time at that point. That decision turned out to be a great one.  Business really too off and life was pretty grand.  In 2013, our world changed forever as we welcomed our son, Nathaniel, into the world. What a joy he is for us and now that I am a mom, photographing families has become even more personal and important to me than ever before.

 A Session with Me….

First and foremost, sessions with me are never, ever rushed! I strive to make each experience as stress free as possible. I have the patience of a saint (so I’ve been told, so I’m going with that 😉 ). I do have approximate time allotments for each session, but rest assured, I’m flexible on that on occasions when it’s needed.  However, that being said, I’ve been doing this long enough that I can get ALOT of great shots in a pretty short amount of time on average.  While I’m very laid back and easy going overall, during a photography session with me, things might get a little wild and crazy.  Sessions with me include lots of activity and interaction with your children. I want to catch a variety of emotions from you and your child/children. What is most important to me is for you to look at the images and for them to bring a smile to your face. Sure, life is not always a bed of roses, but the photographs I want to offer you will at least be a taste of the many joys your children bring to your life.  I admit, I am a half glass full kinda gal. I take pride in creating ‘happy’ images. That does not always mean a full blown smile, but the overall feel of your gallery with me will be one that showcases the sweetest part of family. So be ready for lots of kisses, hugging, playing and being silly with your children during our session. My focus is on my subject and capturing human connections. Period. 😉
