En Pointe {Friendswood Dance Photographer}

Meet Abby. Sweet Abby dances with my daughter and she was willing to “trash” an old pair of pointe shoes on the beach to help see a vision of mine come to life. Since my daughter has started dancing, I have found that more and more, I am drawn to photographing dancers. There is something about the way they move. Their bodies are beautiful and I loving combining the art of photography with the art of dance. Thank for playing along with me, Abby! <3

Prom {Friendswood, Texas Photographer}

I love prom! It holds such special memories for me from my own junior and senior years in high school. Though I have quickly found that larger schools “do” prom completely different than small Texas panhandle towns! One of the dancers that my daughter has adopted as a sister was a senior this year – she and her mom invited me along to be their personal paparazzi  and I LOVED it! I hope to have the opportunity to photograph more prom-goers next year! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My sweet daughter and her bestie tagged along with me to take pictures. They couldn’t wait to dress up and join in on the fun! We played prom all night and all day the next day! I hope these girls never forget the fun they  had that night!!

 

 

 

 

And just for fun… lets throw it waaayyyy back, all the way to 2000; my own Senior Prom!!!

Be Delight {Canadian, Tx Toy Store & Baby Boutique}

Be Delight is the adorable new shop in my hometown of Canadian, Tx. It is owned and operated by one of the sweetest girls I know. I happen to adore Amanda and her entire family! Even her husband, who pestered me like crazy growing up. It’s funny how life comes around. In fact, 6 years earlier I took their engagement pictures on this very street. I don’t think Amanda knew she would not only call this place home, but also have such a sweet little store! If you’re ever in the area, you must stop by. She has the cutest baby and kid items, even has baby and birthday registeries. I think the Kickee Pants are my favorite – they are so incredibly soft! And the aden + anais  bamboo blankets – you must feel those!!  Need a timeless wooden gift for that cute kiddo in your life? She’s got ya covered! Backpacks, lollipops, & books galore! The over-sized plush animals are too cute!  Amanda, I am so proud of you – thanks for letting me hang out with my camera! Love ya!

Cowboy Mav {Friendswood, Tx Family Photographer}

This is my buddy, Mavrick. His daddy & I went to nursing school together, so I think they’re a pretty awesome duo. Mav’s dad needed some updated pictures of the two of them for Christmas gifts, and I was more than happy to spend a Sunday morning with them. I learned that cowboys don’t smile, and broncos buck. It was a lot of fun, but I think my favorite part was the donuts they shared with me afterwards!

Family isn’t an important thing… {Cypress, Tx Family Photographer}

… It’s everything.

Siblings have such an incredible bond; The only thing better than a sister, is having a twin… unless you’re the big brother & you get TWO little sisters, at the same time!  ;)

I have gotten to know this sweet family though my volunteer work with the Children’s Craniofacial Association. Ashley has Apert’s Syndrome. It is a genetic defect and occurs in 1 out of every 160,000 to 200,000 live births – I’d say that makes her pretty darn special! I was so excited that I was able to take their family pictures, and I hope this is the first of many sessions. In June, I will be travelling to St. Louis to  act as the official photographer for Cher’s CCA Kids annual retreat – I will be spending the week with 50+ kids just like Ashley. To say that I’m excited is an understatement! It is an incredible honor that CCA has invited me to hang out with these fantastic kiddos and their parents!

But enough yapping – I want to show off the family now! :)
