My friend Lauren recently asked if I would take pictures of her and her sister Jennifer as a gift of their mom on Mother's Day. I said, sure, no problem! Then she added on that they wanted a pictures with all the grand-pups as well. Still no problem! These ladies, and dogs, are total pros in front of the camera!
Jennifer, Lauren, Zoey, Max, Rocco, and Hunter make for a great crew and are very easy to photograph, especially if there is a squeaky toy nearby!
Happy Mother's Day!
Three years ago when I was just starting grad school at UH I had no idea what to expect. I had no plans for my work, I knew no one in Houston, and I did not know what it meant to be in an MFA program. Thankfully, on the day of orientation I happen to sit down next to someone special who would come to mean so much to me and would make all these new changes and worries easier to bear. This person is Lauren Christlieb.
Lauren Christleib is a talented MFArtist. Lauren Chirstlieb is great friend.
Lauren is graduating this year with her Masters of Fine Arts. She asked me to do her graduating portraits and I am beyond honored. When other photographers want you to photograph them it means a lot. We had a lot of fun during this session with some great light and colorful walls! Lauren even brought her dog Zoey!
During the session Lauren said that I was making her look good, however, I can't capture what isn't there. Lauren, you always look that good, inside and out.
Love you and so thankful for you!
LET THE ADVENTURES BEGIN!
Welcome to the world Bennett Hirschfeld!
When I met Bennett he was 10 days old and a really cool little dude. The easiest newborn sessions are the ones where the baby sleeps though the whole session. Bennett seemed to know this right away and once he had some breakfast he nodded off and let us rock and roll with the session. His parents Jake and Rosie are fun folks who are sure to have a great time raising their little one.
I learned that Bennett is the 7th grandchild (!!), so he is bound to have a fun time running around with all his cousins when he grows up. Bennett, you keep being you, and Jake and Rosie, enjoy the adventure!
My dear friend Rosemary got married this past weekend! It was a beautiful ceremony and great time with friends and family. Rosemary tutored me in high school and college and I could not have asked for anyone more patient or kind to explain math to me.
When she asked if I had time to photograph her bridals of course I jumped at chance to do something for her. I'm very honored that Rosie describes our session together as one of the funnest parts of planning her wedding! We had a great time exploring the Michabelle Inn in Hammond, Louisiana. I love when I have my friends in front of my camera. I wish Rosemary and Ben all the best as they start their new life together and I hope to see them next time I'm in town!

I was stoked to get an email from Mike asking if I would be around over Thanksgiving to do some portraits of his beautiful family. When I last photographed the Machado family we scheduled a morning session to beat the heat and it turned out to be in the low 90s, but this time we could not have had better weather, cool and crisp for a post Thanksgiving session!
Mike and Heather's girls, Scarlett and Annabelle, were just as fun as I remember and better dressed than I could hope to be. (Personal note: Heather, do their boots come in adult sizes??) We had fun exploring the fountains and bridges and train tracks that City Park has to offer. This was a great time with the Machado family and I look forward to sessions with them in the years to come!
