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”.

Family Maternity Session

Chelsea initially contacted me to schedule a newborn session for her little arrival in April…As we were chatting she mentioned wanting maternity pictures with the family too! Let me tell you, if I looked as good as Chelsea does at 8 months pregnant I’d be signing up for tons of maternity pictures too! She looked amazing was so full of energy! She was up for anything! I’m a little bit jealous…haha! Mr. Harrison was not the biggest fan of pictures but once we let him play with some sticks he was happy. Little Molly was super super sweet though, you can tell she just adores her mama.

I can’t wait to share their newborn session when Baby Margaret gets here!

Aldana Family

Sweet Abbey and her family are good friends of ours (it helps that our husbands are related haha) We get along very well and our kids are only a few months apart so it makes for some very exhausting playdates…
This family is so easy to photograph. You can really see the love between Jonathan and Abbey when they look at each other. I had to tell them to calm down when I asked them to kiss! “WHOA! That’s a different kind of photo session, okay?” Their little boy is a big ham, especially when you bring up superheroes! Baby Ruby is the sweetest little thing, she smiled almost the whole session and never once cried! Hallelujah!

Titcomb Family : : “Fall” Begins!

I met the Titcombs when their older daughter started taking piano lessons from me. She had been coming a few months when we discovered we had already met once at church! I was leading worship at the church Corey’s parents attend and I didn’t even realize they were the same people! Haha, small world. ☺️
I love the location of this photoshoot – the sun is setting perfectly between the trees. Little Sister was not having the posed pictures but after we got her dancing and chasing Big Sister, she warmed up to the idea of giving me a few smiles.

Luka Antonio : : Two Years Old

I have always liked photography -even when I was a kid I would set up my camera on a tripod and try to take 1998 style selfies. But I never had much inspiration….until this guy was born.
I can’t believe he’s already turning two. I’ll blink and it will be 22…..and he will still be living at home because he’ll never leave me. (just kidding, I’m kicking that kid out on graduation day)

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.

Sibling Mini Session

Remember that time I gave away a mini session on Facebook? Yeah, many months later Natalie and I were finally able to sync our schedules and she got to redeem that session as a sweet sibling mini session!
These kids were a lot of fun to photograph. I wish I could have fully captured the energy that Natalie’s little three year old had! I have never seen a more energetic little boy. He literally ran the entire 30 minutes of our session.

I look forward to working with this sweet family again!
