A sweet, tender and quiet little soul (save for his monumental toots) joined our world this September. At only a few days old, Jax let me hold him, pose him, jostle him, and take photos to my heart’s delight. You may recall our “expecting” family session with his parents and his buddy Cloud: the gentle Great Dane giant of their very loving family. But I digress. These are a few of my faves from our little newborn session.

Cloud loves his little buddy for sure, but I think he wishes he was still the baby of the house….(a very BIG baby)

This next photo is one of my very faves. You see, Baby Jax, Daddy & Mommy belong to a very special club and their Cane’s extended family has welcomed Baby Jax with lots of love.

I’m so excited that I get to see this little guy grow up over the next year! Thank you guys for opening your home to me and my camera!

I got one of the most exciting texts yesterday. It was from Angel who told me that Baby Jaxon is making his way into this big world TODAY!

We so much fun a couple weeks ago when Angel, Jimmy, and Cloud met us at Hermann Park for their family portrait session. The session was in celebration of baby’s pending arrival. All of us had a grand ol’ time playing around the park. And you can clearly see from all three how excited and happy they are to welcome Baby Jaxon.

Happy birthday, little man! We can’t wait to meet you!

On this day of love, I’m so excited to share a tidbit from a recent session with Baby Palmer. Love comes in so many forms, but quite possibly none more powerful than that of a mother’s love. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing Baby Palmer because, as it turns out, he makes some of the most expressive faces I’ve ever seen a newborn make. Well, to be honest, we started this session close to the end of his first birth month…so we probably just made the newborn cut-off. Either way, Palmer’s many faces were a delight. He is as delicious as any baby I’ve had the pleasure to capture from this side of the lens. Thanks to mommy Laura for being so helpful during our session! I loved working with you all! Happy Valentine’s Day! XOXO

I just love when clients call/email/Facebook or otherwise contact me to say: “we’re expecting!” For me it is such an honor to become part of a family’s heritage with the photographs I create on wedding day. Getting the opportunity to do it again with their babies brings me tremendous joy and feels like a huge gift.

I remember Diana & James’ wedding like it was yesterday. So it’s super hard to believe it’s been over two years! Getting to see their sweet, smiling faces again and meet Baby Connor was such a treat. He is the most scrumptious little thing I’ve laid my eyes on recently. With plump round cheeks just begging for a pinch (yes, I’m that Aunt Trish), and these pursed little lips that threaten to blow a kiss at any moment. And his hair! He has the fullest head of hair I’ve ever seen on a little one! He’s simply BEAUTIFUL. Just see for yourself with a few faves from our session:

I met Zoe at a a recent wedding vendor related function. You may better know her as The Cookie Girl! Her delectable cookies have graced many special occasions in the Houston area and she specializes in making custom confections for all kinds of celebrations. I look forward to featuring some fun items here on the blog very soon showcasing a fun idea for wedding favors. Zoe is a total sweetheart and she’s quickly becoming a great friend. I was over the moon to do this shoot with her and her beautiful family.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, here are some of my very favorites. Benjamin is going to melt some hearts with those baby blues!

On Everette’s twelfth day of life, we spent the afternoon getting cozy with the camera. His big sis, Alyssa, was along for the ride and helped me get some great shots of baby Everette. Here are some favorites of the day:

Everette was wide-eyed and bushy tailed for most of the session, so we had to wait around for him to fall asleep in our basket. Mom helped coax baby back to sleep and we caught these shots:

I had the great pleasure of photographing this little bundle of joy earlier this year. Ana Sofia is Valentina’s sister, who, coincidentally, has been featured on this year’s holiday cards for Plum Tree. You may remember this family from our multiple posts documenting their lives – a journey that began almost five years ago when I shot the wedding.

This session was actually a three-part shoot, capturing the arrival of this new family member, collecting some holiday family photos, and eventually a mini session for Valentina. I just can’t help it when it comes to this child – my camera adores her…but more about her will follow in another post.

So to start off this three part post, here are the photos of Ana Sofia. She has already captured my heart, and if history repeats itself (and I’m certain it will), she will be a camera magnet just like her big sister.

I put together this collage of my favorite images. And then I got to playing around with ideas for a big wall display in a nursery.

I just love decorating around the house…since I don’t have kids, this was a fun, virtual project!

Here she is out like a light in daddy’s arms…

Congrats to the Ayala’s for their beautiful, growing family!!

Many, many times I’ve been caught gushing about my Plum Tree Families. From weddings to little ones and some other, major life events, these are the folks that have come along with me on the Plum Tree ride. Truth be told, I gush about all my clients – no joke, I’m incredibly fortunate to have the best ones in the world. Nonetheless, I’m also soooo thankful to feel a part of the magic that are family moments and bonds.

The Ayalas are definitely one such bunch – if not THE Plum Tree Family. Since 2006 (the year I also founded my business) I’ve been privileged with documenting their lives. Each time it’s something so awe-inspiring. This month, I’ve been commissioned to photograph Carolina and the gang for the coming of their second baby (name pending).

By now, they could probably list “professional model” on their resumes and, given their ability to charm the camera, make a pretty good living at it. How fortunate am I that they hire me to take their pictures instead! ;)

I just love working with these guys.

While I edited this shoot I caught myself sneaking peeks and reminiscing on the newborn shoot for Valentina – who’s now, incredibly, two years old! Princess Valentina is such a fun, sweet, and loving girl…that has us all completely ga-ga over her. Baby number two is going to have a wonderful big-sis.

So here are the Ayalas, celebrating the coming of their newest addition. Thank you guys for letting me be a part of it! I can’t wait to see her when she’s here!

One of my very favorite things about what I do is getting to see a family grow. I was so honored when my good friends asked me to document the birth of their daughter. This is Glory…at just one week old!

I met Josie and Justin last year when I did their wedding photography. Simply put, one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. Full of life and enthusiasm, they share a love for each other that’s practically tactile. When I heard this year that they were expecting their first baby, Emily, I was just over the moon.

Josie and Emily entered last month’s contest and won a portrait session with me. So we went down to my favorite park Discovery Green last week and had a good ol’ time. There was so much going on around us that little Emily found it hard not to be distracted. From the skaters on the ice rink, to the gigantic Christmas ornaments overhead, to the myriad of colors and sounds, it was sensory overload. But in good way. As I watched baby Emily experience everything with such wonder and fascination, I realized that in her four little months on this earth she probably hadn’t had that much excitement all at once. And through her eyes many things looked new to me as well. That’s just the magic of children.

I couldn’t have been more thrilled to finally meet Emily and catch up with Josie on the novelties of the past year. So much has happened in all of our lives. Once again I found myself in awe of the swiftness of time. The only thing missing was dad Justin, who’s in Iraq. Thankfully, he’ll be home this Christmas. And I look forward to seeing him too in the near future. :)

Justin, I hope you like this show. Your girls are so beautiful and such a joy. I’m so happy that technology can make it possible to cross the globe to share this day with you. Josie, thank you once again for being a delight to work with. And Emily, you are a wonderful sport. It’s like they say, the apple doesn’t fall far, right!

Enjoy your SLIDESHOW!
