Cristina {Eagle Springs TX Maternity Photographer}


There is something special in mommies-to-be, a confidence that I don’t see in my other subjects, a delicacy and profoundness that streams in every image I take of them. Cristina is a true example. In the beginning of her maternity photoshoot in the English Garden in Eagle Springs, TX I wasn’t sure how comfortable she would be with some individual closeups. Decide for yourself:
  

Her favorite two men couldn’t wait to join in on the fun as well.



Cristina had warned me about little Billy – her adorable son soo to be a big brother. She worried he wouldn’t cooperate for the pictures. When I hear that I aways think – perfect, I’ll get really great natural shots of him having fun. Billy I think surprised even his mommy and daddy how great he was!
 

It really touched my heart when Cristina asked me to take some shots of Billy with his daddy. I am always on the hunt for great photos of Eli with Robb, fathers and sons have a special connection that has no limits.


What made me the happiest was when Cristina and her husband made time for themselves – no words can relay the chemistry that those two have:

 


What a gorgeous family this baby girl is being welcomed in!

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!

    

   

Alyssa & Gabriel – AHS Homecoming {Humble TX Couples Photographer}

I big question mark possessed my mind as I was preparing for Alyssa’s and Gabriel’s Homecoming photosession. I knew I wanted to take them to the Eagle Springs English Garden, but I thought “It’s Homecoming Dance night! So would the photographers of all the other students!?”

Little I knew what was in front of me – nothing could have prepared me for the amount of people that literary overtook the gardens! There was no parking spot left, cars lined up the sides of the street – it looked like one big wedding. I strategically looked around to identify spots were we could take some photos undisturbed. Thankfully, by the time our session started, everyone moved around a bit giving us 5-10 min windows to capture the places I had envisioned. With the exception of one place that Alyssa’s grandma kept for us under a strict watch until we were ready 🙂

So lessons learned, it’s essential to take your time in a situation like this to get the shots that everyone hoped for. I especially loved how towards the end of the session both Alyssa and Gabriel started relaxing and getting in a party mood – it helped bring out their personalities and lit up their faces.








The Scott’s Family {Humble, TX Family Photographer}

I couldn’t have wished for a better photography session to brighten my Sunday afternoon than the one with the Scott’s Family. You know when you meet someone and you just click with them – that’s how I felt – at ease and ready to do my best to bring out their bright and caring personalities.

David, Valerie,their daughter Emma (3yrs) and I spent an hour exploring the beauty of the English Garden in Eagle Springs – a location that offers so much versatility to work with. Below are some of my favorite images from the stone bridge, to the huge rocks by the lake and many flower and wood backdrops.









And now some images from little Emma posing like a true professional – kids just have it in them to be so natural!



The next picture is special to me! It grabbed my heart before I had even gone through the whole album. It just captures the kid’s free spirit so well, a free spirit that slips away from a lot of us adults.
