Houston Heights portraits – Caitlin & Erin

Caitlin and Erin didn’t have a precise plan to end up in Houston, but these two driven, intelligent women have found a home, not only in the city that they now love, but with each other. It was only fitting that their portraits reflect how much this dingy, beautiful, complicated city means to them. We...

A Houston Christmas proposal at home

Just before Christmas I had the pleasure of hearing from Trevor. He called to let me know that he was proposing to his girlfriend, Haley, out in the courtyard of their apartment in a few days, and wanted to know if I could document the big moment. Of course I said yes! I joined him...

1812 Farm Maine Wedding

Part two of Sowmya and Zach’s Maine wedding took us a few miles down the road to Pemaquid Point Lighthouse for ceremony number two of the day. The Kentucky couple had visited the area and the lighthouse only a few days after they got engaged. The trip with family was already planned, but Zach timed...

The 1812 Farm Maine Indian Wedding

When Sowmya and Zach started to plan their wedding, it was an easy decision to throw a destination wedding in Maine. They had come to visit the lighthouse on Pemaquid Point only a few days after their engagement and thought to themselves, “When we get married, this would be a perfect place to do it.”...

French’s Point Maine Wedding: Angie & Stephen

Angie and Stephen live bustling lives in Cambridge, MA where they both work and live close by their company’s office, a company that they both work for. Angie and Stephen met at work, like many of us do, and what started out as a business trip quickly turned into something much more special. The two...

York Harbor Beach family portraits: The Shanebergers

Capping off my week of beach portraits last month was a family that holds a very special place in my heart. Sally and Gray were wedding clients in 2012 and it was their wedding that really got my business into high gear. For us photographers sometimes we just have an event or a client that...

Blue Hill Maine family portraits

During my week home in Maine this August I had the joy of seeing this family. I have been photographing Catherine and Matt and their kids for the past five years, doing family portraits and senior photos for their oldest daughter. This summer it was their son’s turn for senior portraits and we also did...

Pine Point Beach family photos: The Grants

Adding to my string of beach sessions this summer were the Grant family! I’ve known Jesse and Moraima for many years, and photographed their wedding in Puerto Rico five years ago. They recently moved to Portland, Maine and while I was home visiting and working, we got together for a fun session on the beach....

Pine Point Beach summer portraits: Mawson-Baker family

This August was full of beautiful beach sessions and family portraits all over Maine.

Houston Bridal Portraits at Holy Rosary Church

LeighAnn and Mike were married last fall at Ouisie’s Table in Houston and we had a blast last summer doing her bridal portraits at the church. The two were married at Holy Rosary in Midtown. Here are my favorites from her bridal session.

Boston engagement session – Angie & Stephen

Summer is here and my season is packed full of travel back home to New England. We just returned to Houston from our family vacation in Maine, and three days later I was back on a plane headed back to Boston. It’s a full weekend of photographing a wedding for a client in Belmont, as...

How to be a more inclusive wedding photographer

I’m going state the obvious for a second….weddings are very bride centric. The wedding industry is heavily geared toward catering to what the bride wants at HER wedding. Go to any wedding blog and this is apparent from the start. Even wedding pros themselves are notorious for having language on their website that give the...

Katy family portrait sessions

Let’s be honest. Summer is here y’all! Even though it doesn’t say so on the calendar, for those of us here in Houston the temps say otherwise. And you KNOW it’s only going to get hotter. So now is the time to get those family portraits done that you’ve been putting off all season. And...

Nestled just outside downtown on the corner of Houston Ave and Spring Street sits one of Houston’s oldest, original fire stations. This stunning, brick building is a charming location for truly intimate...

Hotel ZaZa Memorial City – Houston Wedding Venue For my birthday this March I decided it was time for a little r&r. With my parents here visiting from Maine, I took advantage of the free childcare and told my husband that we were going on a little staycation. I have been wanting to stay the...

If you are engaged and planning a wedding in 2020 now is the time to start looking for your photographer! After you’ve chosen the venue and locked that in, the next vendor, generally, to get booked is the photographer. We tend to get hired 9-12 months in advance (sometimes more than that!) so now is...
