Photo Class Pricing Change

Since this is our very first every photo class in this format I’ve decided to make a big change on the price. If this class goes well I definitely would like to offer it again in the future, which makes our very first attendees our trial run. I feel like that means they should pay a bit less […]

Issa’s Very First Day of School

I definitely thought I’d be more emotional. The hardest part was leaving her while she was crying, but sighing a great sigh and meeting up with our parent friends (who also have kiddos in Issa’s class) made things much easier. I’ve learned something about myself over the last year and half of being a mom, […]

I shot my husband.

Not too long ago Bill and I were either driving in the car or sitting in bed, or one of those places where toddlers are either in bed asleep or tied down and thus somewhat distracted. He looked at me and said, “you know, you’ve never photographed me”. And other than just shooting our lives and […]

So, do I just get a CD of images?

This post is long over due. I get this question a lot, “So, do I just get a CD of images?”, and when I hear it, my heart hurts. This is a loaded question, way more loaded than any client or potential client probably intends it to be. It’s loaded because it’s personal and because […]

Baby Judah and His Family, a Spring, TX Newborn Photo Session

This is a family who is near and dear to my heart. They were some of the first people to reach out to us when we moved (back) to Houston. They took us out to lunch after church one Sunday, neither of us had kids yet and Bill and I had only been married for […]

Five Things : Smell, Travel, July is For Babies, Dole Whip Envy, Espresso

1. SMELL – Remember how we were sick? We’re all pretty much back to normal over here. All except I can’t smell anything. Yes. You read that right. It sounds like an excellent thing to be without when changing a poopy diaper or when the dog lets out a nasty fart, but other than those things it’s […]

We’re Real Sick Over Here

I’m 8 tissue boxes deep in some real gross crud. Issa was sick first and as any mom knows that’s basically the worst. Seeing your baby sick evokes the most helpless feeling imaginable. Right as she was starting to get better she was kind enough to share it with me. I mean, when your very […]

Blueberry Picking and Making Memories

Issa’s favorite food right now are blueberries, which she excitedly calls “boo-bees”. So when Bill and I woke up Saturday morning I looked at him and said “lets go picking, blueberries or blackberries?” There wasn’t much to discuss, blueberries it was. So we got ready and headed out to Moorhead’s Blueberry Farm in Conroe, TX. […]

A Preview of the New Whole Foods Market Champions in Spring, TX

You may remember a post from years ago where I talked about Trader Joe’s coming to The Woodlands and pleading with Whole Foods to open a market on the north side, Whole Foods Market Champions Forrest. Then in June of 2012 I went to the Trader Joe’s opening day and shared about it here, again […]
