A Texas bluebonnet engagement session with more wildflowers and large oak trees? Yes please! I was pretty thrilled when Brittany suggested doing a session in the flowers but of course, timing is the most important thing with the 2 week flowering window. After having a weird non-winter and warm February in totally unpredictable Texas style, this day in March was freezing. It was the one day that was windy and cold the whole month but thankfully the quilt came in good use to keep them warm. The light looked amazing and the bluebonnets were really blooming in Brenham.
This Hermann Park engagement was a new adventure featuring Kate, Cameron, and their 3 adorable dogs. I have had shoots with dogs before, but never 2 rottweilers and a pug! I knew there would be some adventure wandering through the crowded park with 3 dogs in tow. Thanks to Cameron's parents for their last minute trip to help wrangle the herd! This was an unseasonably warm Saturday in mid-February but with Texas you never know what you might get in the morning, then could snow by the afternoon. We still wanted to do the cute blanket shot at the end though it might involve sweating.
This Houston family photography session ended up being the prettiest with the cute family and the winter light at Hermann Park right before the holidays. Of course this winter has been a super mild one since I moved back to Texas and it was mid-70's for these pictures in December.
This Houston couple and I lucked out! While I was transitioning between Texas and Las Vegas, I was able to shoot their wedding when I happened to be going back to finish off my remaining sessions for 2015. Torey told me all about their Houston destination wedding to Vegas they had planned at the Wedgewood Wedding and Events Center at Stallion Mountain. I couldn't believe Laura was super busy juggling law school all while planning a wedding, but it all came together beautifully for their day! We met in Houston to go over all of the details and get to know them a bit better before their trip.
Christmas is only a couple more days away! This holiday family portrait session was shot earlier in the fall while I was still in Las Vegas as my last scheduled shoot there for 2015. Bittersweet!
