Venue 311 – modern barn weddings in hill country Texas

I left my home in Katy, Texas on a Friday afternoon and headed north on an adventure to visit a new wedding venue way on the outskirts of city or suburban life. Drive up 99 and then northwest on highway 290, and before you can blink and eye you have officially left suburban sprawl and...

Mom and baby session at home

This fall my friend Crystal had her third girl (oh my gosh, look at that red hair!) and I was delighted to spend the morning with her in her home while she and baby did what moms and new babies do…a lot of nothing! They lounged around, nursed, snuggled, and enjoyed the quiet of the...

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...

Katy maternity and family photos at home

A few weeks before the arrival of their third baby girl I got to spend some time at home with this wonderful family in Katy. They had hired me to photograph the birth, but knowing this was their last baby, they also wanted to capture a little bit of home life with the two girls...

Day in the life photos in Katy, Texas

Greetings from the east coast! If you are a regular follower of my work, or know even just a little bit about me, you know that I currently live in Katy, Texas but I am originally from Maine. And it is here in the gorgeous pine tree state where I am now! I am, as...

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...

Buffalo Bayou Park Engagement Session – Rebekah & Matt

Rebekah and Matt joined me on a gorgeous spring day in Houston, albeit a bit hot, and we wondered around some of our favorite spots in Buffalo Bayou Park for their engagement photos. These two are so fun and were an absolute joy to photograph. They are such naturals in front of the camera! I...

Studio Portraits – Carson

This handsome little man sat for his portraits this week and we did not stop giggling the whole session. What an adorably expressive child he is and joy to photograph.

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...

Family photos at home

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...
