the S family | colorado family photographer

While driving in to Houston, I passed by a gorgeous location on the right and I remembered thinking, "Dang. I wish that was where I had scheduled all of my family sessions."

Fast forward to a couple of days later, and on my way to Julia's session I passed by that same gorgeous location. Thankfully, she and her family were super flexible so we met up at our original spot...then turned around and drove to the new one. :)

The light was gorgeous. Her girls were gorgeous. I absolutely loved this session.

Thanks again, Julia. It was so great to see you, and to meet your beautiful family! You are truly very blessed!

the P family | colorado family photographer

So much fun meeting this family--and they win the award for "best dressed." Between the reindeer sweater and the suspenders, I was in a photographer's heaven. :)

Thanks again, Nancy! So lovely to have met you and your dudes!

the R family | colorado family photographer

There were so many photos that I wanted to share from this session, but I'll have to wait until Christmas cards are out. ;)

In the meantime, these will hold me over.

I have been wanting to photograph baby D since the very first time I ever saw his smile--it's killer, trust me. When Jenn and I spoke a few times about possible photos, it never really worked out.

But this time...

So much fun!!

Thanks again, Jenn! Great to see you, and your family! :)

the handsome d | colorado family photographer

I got to see this handsome guy's mom for the first time in over 10 years when we met up for this session. It was cool to have the chance to catch up on the past decade while we walked around the Dallas Arboretum, having fun with her husband and her little man, taking photos here and there.

Those are my favorite sessions--the ones where there is no pressure.  You just mingle, take photos, talk, take photos, laugh, take photos. And those are the sessions that alway turn out the best, because you manage to capture some very real moments.

Thanks again, April!! Loved seeing you and meeting your family!!
