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 […]

Glen & Melissa, A Wooded Engagement Session, The Woodlands, TX

Melissa is a person who is near and dear to my heart. I met her when she was in our youth group years ago. She reminded me of myself at that age and we had a lot in common. I’ve watched her grow, battle, succeed, and excel in life. A few years ago I had […]

Lane : A Spring Texas Rural Senior Photo Session

We’ve actually known Lane for a while, back when he was a Freshman he attended a small youth group that Bill and I led. He’s a fantastic person, with a killer smile that can light up a room. The fact that he’s a senior is kind of blowing my mind, time couldn’t have passed that […]

What Does the Fox Say Party – Issa’s First Birthday

I tend to go overboard for parties, it’s true, and Issa’s first birthday was no exception. In January (her birthday is in March) I started brain storming theme ideas. I’ll never be one to do a character themed party, at least I say that now, there may be tiny child demands for it later. Let […]

Joe : A Klein Collins Football Senior Photo Sesson

Joe is the oldest in his family. I’ve shot his family several times before, here and here, but it was kind of fun to just focus on Joe and get to know him a little bit better. Joe played football for Klein Collins and is headed to Blinn to play some more football. We had […]

A Photography Session Among Friends, Spring, TX

When both Jenna and Hannah e-mailed me about doing their senior photography sessions and that they really wanted to do a mini session together I thought sure, why not. It’s always been our policy that if you and a friend book a senior session, we’ll do a free mini session with both seniors. I’m all […]

A Rustic Senior Photo Session, Hannah

The morning of the day of Hannah’s senior photo session I thought I was going to loose my mind. Issa was having one of those terrible days where babies just cry and scream and you have no idea what’s wrong because they can’t tell you and it could be anything and the few words they […]

A Senior Photography Session, Jenna

Jenna found me online, but oddly enough that whole six degrees of separation thing worked because she rides horses at the same stables in Tomball, TX that Jaclyn rode at when I did her senior photo session about two years ago. When Jenna filled out her client info form and I read she wanted to […]

Someone is Stealing Babies

I’ve always had this feeling in the back of my mind that someone might take Issa away from me. The moment I held her in my arms I felt a genuine fear, that at any moment, someone would just walk in and say, no we made a mistake, she’s not yours to keep. I’ve heard […]
