Friday Favorite | Houston Family Photographer

It’s time again for Friday Favorites!  This week I’m highlighting the importance of FUN in a photo session.  I’d like to think that I have a great sense of humor and I love it when the people around me have a great sense of humor too!  I love to have fun during my photo shoots, and this family was a ton of fun to photograph!

In this photo, the parents and their kiddos genuinely enjoy each others’ company and it totally shows in their photographs.  So many of the photos show them laughing together and they had me laughing too.

This shot was totally candid.  I was posing Mom and Dad and sent the kids around to the side of the brick building.  As I was shooting, I noticed the kids peeking around the corner and we got this great shot.  It will always be one of my favorites!

So, the next time you have a family photograph taken, have fun, laugh together, and capture those moments in your photos!

10 on 10 | Klein Oak Senior Photographer

Today I’ve got another handsome senior session to share!  And since it’s the 10th of the month, I’ll make it a 10 on 10 post!

The session I’m blogging today was such a pleasant surprise!  I knew the photos would look great, and I knew the senior would look great, but I had no idea how photogenic he would be!  I was so pleasantly surprised at how easily he moved about, and was so easy to work with!  He’s a total natural.  Plus, he’s got a great future in front of him.  He’s been accepted to several prestigious schools in TX, and I’m not sure which one he’s decided to attend yet, so I’ll let him share that when he’s ready.  Needless to say, he’s smart, handsome, and he’ll do well wherever he ends up!

So let’s get to the photos.  This session was great because we shot in his neighborhood (I like to make it as easy on the family as possible) and we found some great spots around the pool clubhouse and grounds.  I love traveling around Houston to scout out locations, but in reality, you don’t have to drive all over town to get great senior pics!  It’s all about the lighting, posing, and capturing the true personality of the senior!  Check out his photos, and leave a comment telling me which one is your favorite!  Thanks for stopping by the blog!

Whew!  Friday is here again!  And now it’s a new month!  Time is surely flying by!

Speaking of time, this is a crazy busy time of year for High School Seniors too!  So many end-of-year, and end-of-school activities going on.  Banquets, parties, announcements, photos, proms, college apps, plans for the summer, plans for the future….  I’m tired just thinking about it!  But, it’s such a fun time of life!

Today’s favorite is a photo I took a few years ago (as I always post oldies on my Friday Favorites) and it’s one of my fav’s.  This senior girl rocked her senior pics!  She’s got the supermodel look down!  I just love her edgy look in the alley.

If you didn’t get senior pics this year, give me a call.  It’s never too late to have your photos taken.  Mom’s don’t put it off.  Before you know it, your kiddo will be moving out and you’ll wish you had taken photos!

And, if you’re a junior, get a jump on your senior pics!  Don’t wait.  Time flies by during the Fall and next Spring will be here before you know it!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!

Friday Favorites | Houston Child Photographer

It’s time for another installment of Friday Favorites!

If you’re familiar with my work, then you’ll know that I love a close up image of a child.  It’s a high-impact sort of image that captures the eyes so beautifully.  I absolutely love capturing a child’s eyes.  I love to catch those quick, quiet moments.  They are fleeting, but if you watch and wait, you can catch one, and I always strive to catch those moments.

These are the sort of images I wish I had more of my children.  Makes me want to pick up my camera and go snap a few shots before they get any older!

Senior Mini Sessions | Houston Senior Photographer

Senior photos are a kind of a big deal these days, but with busy schedules filled with activities and responsibilities, it can be difficult to spend a whole afternoon taking photos.  Sometimes a mini session is all that is needed to get some great, custom portraits to capture this special moment in time before a senior’s life changes when they go off to college.

Today’s post shows a sample of what a High School Mini Session looks like.  One location, one outfit, 10-15 images showcasing a senior at their very best.  Senior Mini Sessions may be a good option for a teen who is short on time, or even for a teen who is not as comfortable in front of a camera.  Not every one needs or wants a full 1-2 hour session with multiple outfits, and that’s totally ok!

So if you want to try to squeeze in a last-minute Senior Mini Session, give me a call!  I have some great locations that are perfect for mini sessions.  281-974-8979
