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

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.

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.

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.

Rainy Day + Coffee + Bump Photo Story

These two were such a joy! We made the most of a rainy morning, and I think their love shines through the lens! Don't you? Congratulate Shaun & Lindsay as they prepare to warmly welcome a baby girl in August.

Two parents with two identical girls on the way! Lots of love and tutu's in this house. One parent is a Dance and Zumba Instructor. I will let you guess which one. ;)

Join me in praying for them as they prepare to be parents and welcome these lil' blessings.

Jesus, chocolate and coffee Momma Says Series

Mother and client Jennifer S. shares some great advice for all moms. Especially mother's of all boys!

Thank you Jennifer! You are a rock star momma and inspirational woman. Hope you all enjoy as much as I did. Join me in wishing her a Happy Mother's Day! - C


Being a mother to three boys takes a lot of Jesus, chocolate and coffee and/or wine (depending on the day!).

Each day brings a new set of challenges and joys. These precious little people do not come with instructions and there are no two just alike . . .

Some days, I feel like a total parent rock star and others like a complete failure.

No one can prepare you for how hard and exhausting it is, but . . .

I was also not prepared for how much LOVE one heart could experience. Each child has filled my heart in places I never knew existed. These precious souls make me stop and see the world in a whole new light.

What I would say to a new mommy of boys? Hold on tight and pack your sense of humor. They are wild, adventurous, dirty, curious, daring, did I mention dirty?

Your once nicely organized and decorated home will become a daily battle field for epic warrior scenes and they will build forts and hideouts in every place possible. You better think farts are funny too, or your life will be miserable.

However, in the mess of it all, they have also given me the most tender and magical moments I could ever imagine.

You never get this day again, so love them with all you've got.... and then go fall into bed and be prepared to do it all over again in a few hours:)

Celebrating Beautiful

THYME TO UNCORK

One of my favorite combinations. Food, fun and photos. Capturing a lil' cookin' and camaraderie at Sur la Table with Chef J.D for the February Uncork Networking Event. Each guest received jar of finishing salt from J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works and The Tasting Room CityCentre paired three different wines for each course.
