Mother's Love.jpg

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

I have the honor of working with many mom's for both professional and personal creative projects. I have the utmost respect for both moms, dads and parenting in general! Being a parent is the most selfless job on the planet. Today, I would like to highlight a few [C] Moms with photographs from recent documentary sessions. Enjoy and show these mamas some love!

A MOTHER'S LOVE IS

"A love so deep you can feel it bursting out of your chest! Because you realize even more how important the influence is that you'll provide as a mother." -Cynthia

"THE MOMENTS

experiences and memories we have with our little ones. I just look forward to the things I know we have coming in the future."

"THIS IS HARD TO

answer because there are so many reasons!

Watching Sam and Ellie's curiosity go from being this tiny helpless baby to this adventurous no-fear explore.

Reading to them at night and getting hugs & kisses followed by I love you Daddy.

How you can do no wrong in their eyes right now.

Seeing me and their Mom in each of them."

"SEEING EACH OF

my daughter's individual personalities develop! They are so different and funny in their own special way. Getting to spend one on one time with each of my daughter's... Not just because I want to, but because they want to! It's the best feeling in the world!

It's not doing big things... It might be as simple as just taking a walk or going to the store."

"NOTHING ANYONE

can say or has written can ever prepare you for that feeling of love you have for your child. You can only feel it yourself."

"THE LOVE

that our kids give us back!  Things can be frustrating at times but when they feed those hugs, snuggles and kisses back it's just awesome to be a dad."
 


RICH

"THE FEELING

of how much you love your children. It's cliche to say, but I really didn't understand ( even though I had an idea) until they were born and how I will do anything & everything for their safety & happiness.

"I AM SURPRISED

by how genuinely sweet my girls are . . . They are so excited to see me when I get home from work every day, I get huge hugs daily and it instantly turns a bad day into a great day!

How fast they grow up and how quickly they learn... to walk, to talk, to read and write it is truly amazing! "

Mother to Daughter | Photography Design Houston Texas

My creative direction usually stems from a mixture of a client's story, passion and personality. A memory or a word that jumps out in conversation then begins to swirl into a creative storyboard of imagery and design.

It's a connection. A creative connection.
 
A client that grasps this connection is Jessica. I have grown with her family and entrepreneurial adventures the last 3 years. She trusts, encourages and promotes my creative vision, which makes my entrepreneurial and creative spirit thrive even more.

In light of Mother's Day, I asked Jessica to share what she would like her daughter Ellie to know.

Here are some behind-the-scene snaps from a recent branding shoot paired with her powerful message.  Enjoy! To all moms out there, Happy Mother's Year!

How to listen to that little voice inside because she has everything she needs for anything that she faces in life.

DSC_0206 copy.jpg

She's a powerhouse and if she can learn to channel it in the right way, she will achieve great things. She's adored, cherished and always has a safe place to come home to.

To learn to be kind to herself and to others. To value her imperfections because what she hears inside will echo louder than any voice on the outside.

That I will do my best to set an example of grace, loving kindness and humility and whenever I mess up, I'll own up to it and make amends.

Most importantly I want her to know her worth. So that she'll measure every relationship, opportunity and action by how valued she believes herself to be.

Photography | Pet's, Paw's and Pacifier's

Babes, pups and a few whiskers have played an essential part of the creative process for [c] photography in 2016 and no complaining here! These furry friends are special and in some cases, the "first" born. I have photographed them and their parents, then to later capture them adjusting to the arrival of the "second" born.  :)

A fun way to kick-off 2017 is by saluting all the wagging tails that made a special appearance in their unique way. Enjoy and show them some warm fuzzies! 

 

More moments worth viewing :) 

Feature Friday | Photography Event | Santa~ C.H.E.S. Houston

OH WHAT FUN! Well, maybe not for everyone IN the photos. . . 

We used gifts as negotiations AND partitions. A few children became immediate gymnasts and parents became jungle gyms. All the joys of going to see Santa.

Enjoy a few of snaps from Breakfast with Santa Photo Session at Cathedral House Episcopal School. I wish I could share ALL! 

Per one of the parents , "It really does take a village (and more) to raise children." Big thanks to my little encouragers, elves, Mr. & Mrs. Santa and parents. You are rockstars!

Merry Christmas to all! Show 'em some love.

One Wild Year | Photography | Events

This little guy celebrated one wild year and someone patiently waited for crumbs of cake! So honored I was asked to capture Mason's big day and meet his best friend Gumbo "The Frenchie" ( who has his very own instagram)

 Check out these crazy cute party decorations and fun moments. Enjoy!

Little Grace And Her Dog Duke | An Aggie Family Photo Story
