We beat the summer heat and started our shoot early in the morning! It was well worth setting our alarm clock and meeting while the kiddos were in GREAT, playful moods! I have known Alexa since high school. She has lived all around the world; Australia, Alaska, and now Houston. She has always had a creative gift, and has started her own photography company in the past few years. I have loved seeing her share her gift with others (my own family included while she was in town!) It was such a true pleasure finally meeting her beautiful blondie babies and catching up!!! The location we chose is also one of my favorites!

These two have their hands and hearts full with these two busy boys! I feel like we really captured their personalities, joy that is childhood, and the true exhaustion, fun and love that comes from raising two (twin) toddlers! Looking forward to capturing many more milestones for the years to come for this special family.
If you are a new mama, be sure to check out the awesome product that Lauren created to help keep new mama’s organized and on top of it! It’s called Tiny Tracker!
I met this sweet little family when they were pregnant with Jude. I have done BOTH of their Birthstories and several family sessions along the way. I always love our time spent together! Kate and I always seem to be expecting at the same time….Jude (their first born) was born 3 weeks before Audrey (My first born), and Aria (my 2nd born) was born 2 months before their 2nd born, Ollie. Side note…..but Kate….can my girls marry your boys one day!!?? They are just the CUTEST!! Here are a few faves from our recent shoot! Happy Birthday Boys!!!
I have seen this family grow from two to party of five. I fell in love with Sarah and Pat the moment I met them. I felt like they had been lifelong friends....and they have turned into just that. I have been there with them each and every time they have met all three of their babies. They have the patience of Saints, and were able to wait until they met their baby to find out if it was a boy or a girl. Their first two beautiful babes were boys.....and I could hear the joy (and slight fear ;) ) in Pat's Voice as he announced to Sarah that "It's a Girl!!!" I will never forget that moment!! Sarah was in shock & disbelief that her dreams had come true. The sweet baby that she held in her arms was going to fill their life with pink, sparkles, and unicorns! I can not believe it has already been a year since that moment, but I guess time has a way of sneaking up on you. Happy First Birthday Grayson!!!!! (And scroll to the bottom for a flashback of her BirthStory!)
And how cute is this best dressed babe!!!?!? Mommy picked out all of her outfits from the adorable Little Ladies Boutique!
Of course we had to finish the shoot with her own cake smash!!!
I have had the pleasure and honor of documenting a very special little guy throughout the past year and a half. Meet my sweet nephew, Roman. He is sure to steal your heart with his big brown eyes, chunky thighs, and scrunched nose smile. He has stolen all of our hearts from the moment we laid eyes on him. It is hard to believe that one year ago, today, we were all in that Labor & Delivery room at Mercy Hospital praying for him to take his first breath. He gave us all a good scare! Thank you Kayla & Robbie for allowing me to tag along for the journey to capture each and every feeling, moment, milestone, and sweetness of your boy. Robbie, you have made me more proud than I could ever tell you. Honestly, I am in awe of how wonderful of a Daddy you are. From the moments you were there holding Kayla's hand in the delivery room, to the moment you fed Roman his first bottle, to all the things you do to support your family....you have grown from the little guy that was my little brother into an incredible man. Kayla, Roman (& Robbie) are both so lucky to have you. Watching you become a mother has been so special as well. You were born to do this. You are so strong, independent, caring, BEAUTIFUL, funny, smart, and loving. I love you both. As we all know, they change SO MUCH throughout the first year, so here is a little walk down memory lane. Aunt Ashley loves you Roman!!!
