Sadie is 1! {Eagle Springs TX Family Photographer}

A “Giving Back” opportunity came along for me again through a silent auction at the end of last year. A dear client of mine was raising money with her daughter for a mission trip to Zambia, Africa where they would minister to over 800 orphans through her church. She asked me if I can donate a photo session – I couldn’t be happier!

The Homann family won it! Little Sadie was turning 1 year old and the blue bonnets were in full bloom, so we headed over to Kingwood TX for a photo session to capture her adorable smiles!


Did you notice Sadie’s custom wagon? She was all over it, as brave and adventurous as she could be:


What is a birthday celebration without some colorful balloons? The wind was tricky but I was ecstatic to capture this little sweet girl smiling, looking at the camera, without any balloons in her face and clapping her hands as an added bonus 😀


Wait until you see Sadie’s gorgeous parents:

Who is one?

It was not all smiles…but who better than mommy and daddy to return the happiness back to their little girl’s radiant face:



Daddy is so much fun!


And I can always snuggle with mommy.


Finishing with my most favorite capture of this session:

Happy 1st birthday Sadie!

The Lumpkin Family {Eagle Springs TX Family Photographer}

Recently I volunteered by gifting a Classic Digital Package to the Atascocita Springs Elementary for their Fall 2012 Silent Auction. And this beautiful family – the Lumpkin’s won it!

I was so excited to meet them. Upfront Kelly expressed a concern about Camryn’s tendency (her younger daughter) to smile but not look at the camera. They must have practiced at home or as Steve put it “Kelly takes tons of pictures of them from the moment they were born” – Camryn was a superstar! She posed and danced and laughed and most importantly made consistent eye contact with the camera, although my favorite image of her is when she is actually looking away – so dreamy 🙂

Marley, their older daughter, is 7 and already so grown up. She approached each set up with such grace and elegance!

And I absolutely love the next image of the whole family. Have to give credit to Kelly for asking me to tilt the camera and frame the shot in a more unusual way than just horizontal or vertical. It makes the gallery so much more personal when clients have ideas and I am always excited to try them and incorporate them.

Here are some more images of our fun and thorough session. Enjoy!

    

   

Giving Back – 2012 Eagle Springs Kids’ Triathlon {Humble Family Photographer}

Photography has been such a fulfilling passion for me. When you dive into something until the dawn starts breaking in the morning and not even feel tired, is when you know it’s in you. It’s been an especially rewarding experience once I discovered that I can “Give Back” to the community I live in with what I love doing the most.

My first opportunity came along with the 2nd Annual Kids’ Triathlon that was held in my neighborhood last month. The organizers, all volunteers, were looking for someone to capture the event. I didn’t think twice. And I if I had to do it again, I would in a heartbeat!

Below are some glimpses of the event, impeccably organized, full of the kids’ enthusiasm and the parents’ endless support and pride. Wish I could feature all the kids in this tiny blog post! For those curious to look at the whole album, go to: 2012 ES Kids’ Triathlon featuring also photos by the wonderful Courtney Paul Photography who volunteered with me to cover this  event.
