Family Shoot in Small Town Main Street

I absolutely love this family. She’s been letting me take their family and milestone pictures for a few years now. It’s so fun to watch the change in family dynamics as the kids have grown. 🙂 Not only are they stellar clients, but they’re also great friends. I’m so thankful to have them be part of mine and my kid’s lives.

Last year we took some great images in a beautiful sunlit park full of trees, so this year we wanted to change things up a bit. Downtown Richmond is hopping with photographers, especially this time of year, but I’ve only shot there a handful of times. I love the neutral colors of the brick walls and concrete contrasting with the sun flowing in through the big, mature trees. Plus, these kids are so photogenic, even when they’re not having this “photoshoot thing”.

Bluebonnets 2016

I don’t know why, but I love being a Texan. I’m so not a typical one. I live in the suburbs of a big city, I don’t have an accent, I don’t ride horses or raise any sort of farm animal (unless my dog counts).

But I have serious State Pride.

One of the landmarks of a Texas spring is the arrival of the bluebonnets. It’s basically a right of passage for every Texan kid to be stuck in the middle of a dirty patch of flowers and forced to smile by mom, dad, or for me it was my grandpa. So, welcome to Texas, kids!!

Bluebonnets are the Texas state flower. Legend says they’re illegal to pick, but there’s been some rumors that it’s not true. Either way, they last like 3 weeks all year, so save them for the rest of us okay?! (I’m talking to you, people I saw with a bouquet in your hands…) They’re pretty much just a wildflower, and they bloom typically on the sides of highways. You can find amazing fields of them farther into the Hill Country, but there’s some good patches in Houston too.

Last year, the bluebonnets were my first “real” photoshoot and it’s what inspired me to officially launch Little Egg Photography. So, this year the bluebonnet minis felt like a real milestone to me. Thanks to everyone who signed up and participated! Here’s a few of my favorites!

If you missed it this time, mark your calendars for March 2017- it’ll be here before you know it.

Nacho Libre for Halloween

One of my favorite movies of all time is Nacho Libre. I literally quote it at least once a day, “go! go read some books”. I think I’m hilarious.

My husband does not. Whatever.
So when my friend Sharon told me she was going dress her son up as Nacho for Halloween I said we had to a shoot.

Here are a few of my faves from the shoot.


  
  
  
  

4th of July Minis

It doesn’t get any more patriotic than little kids holding flags. I mean, really.
I was excited to have some friends over for this impromptu mini session. I know I had a lot of fun and I’m pretty sure all the other babies and their mamas did. My kid ate basically half of a huge watermelon during the shoot. No, it wasn’t seedless. Yes, his poop the next day was….interesting to say the least (TMI?)
