Our Candid Life in Photos - Bath Time Series | Houston Family Photographer

In-home photography is such a beautiful way of capturing the sweet memories of our family. One of the best locations inside our home is the boy's upstairs bathroom. The light here is magical. White tile backsplash acts as a natural reflector and sends all the beautiful light right back toward my subject, allowing for crisp images and gorgeous detail. Throw in some dinosaurs and paint the water blue for fun color pop, and it's show time. Oh, and bubbles. Can't forget about bubbles.

Adorable Candid Family Session in Sugar Land, TX

Candid family sessions are chock-full of memories, documenting your children right where there they are, right in this moment. They capture the little things you love so much about your family:

  • how little brother follows his big brother everywhere he goes, mimicking his words and actions
  • how your baby just started walking, with his chunky little legs toddling around
  • how your oldest son is growing into his own adventurous personality, climbing everything around him and showing no fear
  • the way your husband holds y'all's boys' hands
  • the way little brother looks up at you with his arms stretched out, asking for you to hold him

Family photography stops time, even if just for a moment, allowing you to preserve what matters most to you in this world.

Our Documented Life {July 2017 Part One}

July was such a beautiful month. It always is. Not only does my family celebrate the Fourth of July with fireworks and friends and more family, but it's also the month my bearded love and I celebrate our anniversary.

Eight years this year!

I'm also a July baby. I love birthdays. Love, love love.

Then there's summer shenanigans like the Houston Zoo and swimming and friends and lazy days watching tv and playing games.

It's a rich life, y'all. I'm so thankful for it.

Fourth of July fun with my family, friends and a neighborhood fireworks show. Of course, my little sister had to bring her lightup hoop to entertain us while we waited. Sisters got moves, y'all.

Birthday love with my bests, and, yes, some of my best friends are 6 and 8 year olds!

More birthday love with a day spent with my momma.

Random days with friends and our Nana leave us wanting more. Just life in it's ordinary, lovely way.

We go to the zoo for our oldest son's birthday every February. It's glorious. It's not hot. We don't sweat through our clothes nor drive home totally dehydrated.

But the summer is a different story. It's hot. We sweat through our clothes and drive home totally dehydrated.

It's still a good day though. Most days are good days.

Will document more of our days from July in a few weeks. Hope it encourages you, as is always my hope in sharing our life's images, to create your own.

Happy documenting!

Our Documented Life {May} | Houston Family Photographer

Being a Houston family photographer is wonderful. It's a joy! But I didn't start off thinking: I want to take pictures of people for people. All I wanted was to take pictures. Period. I didn’t want to miss a thing! #extrovertproblems

It all started when I was a young girl, totting around my brand new polaroid at Christmas, asking all my family to strike a pose. Many of those pictures are still with me, safely kept in special boxes and gently handled about once a year when I'm feeling particularly sentimental.

(Because as a professional family picture taker, being sentimental is pretty much a prerequisite.)

I don't want my picture sharing blog posts to be all about the shoots with my clients. As lovely as they are and as much as I enjoy writing those posts, my roots are documentary. My roots are strong and deep in the art of documenting my personal life.

So I'm starting a new blog series documenting our every day! Some of the images in these posts are shared on social media, Instagram especially, but many of them are not. Many of them are images I've taken just for me and my family. And now I want to start sharing them with you!

Standing in line at Target. He holds my hands constantly. I can't get enough photos of these little hands, folded into mine.

For this first documentary post, we're gonna travel back to May. We celebrated Mother's Day that month, and I LOVE the images I captured during dinner that day as we celebrated my momma.

Also, boys will be boys. Mine are great in restaurants but when we're with my mom, something crazy happens and they go wild!

We also had a fun day at the park that month that I documented. The sun was too high so I had to get creative and stay in the shadows. This is another reason why I love documenting our life: it stretches me and makes me a better photographer.

When dad goes too fast for Noah and we're all laughing at him. Totally winning parenting, y'all.

We also went to a lovely greenhouse with some of our best friends in May. I love driving out to the nearby small town of Fulshear. I always have my camera in hand.

My bestie and I have a love affair with succulents and cacti. We walked into this area and both about fell over with joy.

Here're some random tidbits of our everdayness that made the cut that month.

A few more from Target. #becausetarget

And grocery shopping at HEB. Which I'll have y'all know grocery shopping with a big ol' DSLR in hand is not my idea of a good time, but it's SO worth it.
