Caroline // Five Years Old

The gift of friendship is one of life's greatest treasures.  Caroline's family are some of our nearest and dearest friends; our kids have grown up together and we don't intend on letting geographic distance interfere with even the youngest of friendships.  She is sassy and sweet, and we are so glad she gets to visit family in Houston so we can see her whenever she comes into town.

I have photographed Caroline for all five of her birthdays.  Last week, while her family was in town, we met outside the Heights library for this quick session before she headed back to Dallas. And thought it was not nearly a long enough visit, it was at least enough for her to be her in front of the camera.   

Knox // One Year Old

This is our buddy Knox.  He turned one last week, just a few days before my baby girl.  Because of the cold and wet weather we've been having, we decided to use the same indoor location as Emelia's session {seen here}.  Turns out living in an apartment has it's perks when the resident lounge goes largely unused and has big windows and great old wooden flooring.  

Here's Knox, and his serious outlook on turning one.     

Olivia at the Beach | Photo Session

Summer has arrived!  Sand, sun, heat and humidity were all waiting with open arms to greet my family to Houston last week, along with the opportunity for two quick photo shoots. Here's a look at the first one, little Olivia.  I believe this is the fourth time I've photographed her, and each time her hair is longer and lovlier, and she moves just a little bit quicker.

While this session took place at Sylvan Beach in La Porte, I wonder if there would be any interest from those in the Gulf Coast area for Bolivar Beach Fall Sessions.  If that sounds appealing to you, would you leave me a comment below?  Sometimes it's nice to venture away from the beloved wooded backgrounds I typically shoot, and the beach is much more bearable when the weather isn't quite so cruel.
