George Bush Park family portraits

This October I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family for a photo session in George Bush Park in Katy. The weather was absolutely perfect on this fall day and the space was great for letting their three year old son run around. Sessions with toddlers are always challenging. As any parent of a...

The birth of Sophie

Thalita and Celso were expecting their third baby girl in mid September and through their midwives at the Katy Birth Center found me to document this joyous occasion. They planned a very peaceful home birth and, being that this was their last baby, they knew that photos of this experience were very important to them...

Birth photography at Katy Birth Center

Here’s another great birth from this spring. This one was planned to be a water birth at the Katy Birth Center and it started out that way until this baby just wasn’t ready. As lots of time went on this mom’s care team decided that it was best to head to the hospital and so we...

Birth session at Woman’s Hospital of Texas in Houston

I’m in the process of migrating all my birth photography work over to this website so here is a session I had this spring at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas in downtown Houston. It was a pleasure to work with this family and witness the birth of their beautiful, baby girl!

Flood baby 2016

Every baby has a story of how they came into the world. For Andrea and Daniel, the story of the day their third baby was born has already made headlines across the country. Rewind back to Sunday, April 17. A major thunder storm was hitting the Houston area overnight and rain was coming down in...

Holly’s three year portraits

I recently had this very special three year in my studio, where I was tasked with a very important project. These weren’t just ordinary portraits where the person in the photo was the subject of the photographer. For this shoot, there were two very important elements, the child, Holly, and the chair she was sitting...

Drakes Island Beach Maine family portraits

On my summer vacation home to Maine this year I got together with my dear friend Brea of Brea McDonald Photography and her family for an evening of dinner on the beach. We gathered our clan of kids, our beach chairs, and a cooler of pasta salad and beer and enjoyed a gorgeous night on the...

Henkel Hall Wedding in Round Top, Texas – Rebekah & Matt

Half way between Houston and Austin, nestled around hill country, are small, quintessential Texas towns. Tiny communities that people flock to for antiquing season, wildflowers in the spring and BBQ, well, anytime. One of those towns is Round Top, a mecca for weekend antiquing trips and bargain hunters looking for that one rare find. In...

Going back to my roots

As we turned the page on 2016 and rolled into a new year, I knew that I needed a change. But for those of you keeping score who might be followers of my work and my writing, you might be thinking, “Change? In the last two years you’ve moved 2000 miles away from home, had...

Closing out 2016

So here’s the deal. There isn’t going to be any “best of nine” junk or a year in review post this year. The truth is…I don’t want to do them. It would be expected of me to do them and I’m done doing what’s expected. I need a change. 2016 has been a year of...

Fall Portrait Season

We are finally coming into a great stretch of weather in the south, where 90 degree days are put on hold for a few months until April when spring, will again, bring warm days and eventual unbearable summer heat. But until then it is fall in Texas and I will cherish these cooler mornings and comfortable evening...

An Afternoon at Home With The Babes…

Photographing families in their home, going about their day, as if I wasn’t even there…that is how I love to do family “portraits.” Everyone is relaxed and no one is expected to pose for the camera. Here is a recent family I had the pleasure of spending some time with.    If you live in Katy,...

My Maine Summer

I always have big goals for myself when it comes to my camera and my time home in Maine. I told myself that this summer I was going to work on a personal project, take more photos of my kids, and really capture the essence of my home state for others to enjoy. Well, I...

From Groom to Father

Today is Father’s Day. So today I’d like to do a “where are they now?” piece, highlighting three of my past clients who have recently become fathers or are expecting their first child in a few, short weeks. All three of these men were grooms from my most special weddings and all these people hold a...
