Blake Gets a Brother | The Woodlands Maternity Photography | Sunlit Maternity Session

You might remember The Parker's from past favorite sessions of mine. They are stylish and fun with a loving bond, and I am always excited to document their milestones. As a portrait photographer there is nothing that makes me happier than seeing your family grow. Creating a bond with your children makes our time shooting fun, relaxing, and enjoyable for all of us! I love all of the little (and big) friends I have made throughout my photography journey. With your permission I do provide non messy snacks and fun trinkets like stickers or bubbles at the end of our session. My goal is for your portrait session to be a fun family outing where mom looks her best, dad is so proud of the unit he created, and your children leave with big grins and hopes for another session soon. I always have fun with my little pal, Blake and I can not wait to see how handsome his little brother will be. Brittany and Ryan are fabulous parents with an intense love for one another and hearing that they decided to expand their already perfect family made my heart happy. Upon discovering this new location I knew it would be ideal for their sunset maternity session in The Woodlands. I am always on the hunt for new and exciting locations that provide gorgeous natural light, cascading fields, and other beautiful landscapes we can utilize. Providing variety for my repeat clients is crucial to me, and also fulfilling as an artist. Here are a few favorite shots from their stunning maternity session.

Senior Portrait Session | 2016 Senior Model Emily | The Woodlands, TX Portrait Photography

Working with seniors is always a fun and rewarding experience. This year I wanted to start off the year with an amazing team of senior representatives that were outgoing and engaging, so I put out a model call on my facebook page. One of my regular clients quickly tagged Emily and I couldn't be more thrilled that we were able to work together. Her mother Melinda and I discussed all of the details and I was happy to find out that I seemed to have found the perfect candidate for my program this year. I developed a point system that rewards you for interacting on social media outlets like facebook and instagram. You'll also earn big points for any direct referrals from your friends or family! These points will translate into monetary credits that you can use toward digital files, graduation cards, or any of the professionally printed products I offer. Did I mention that your *entire* session fee is also waived?  I always have some extra outfits and accessories available to look through and choose from. You are welcome to bring all of your own styling- but I do like to give a few fun extras you might not have thought about. We were honored to have Paulina with Luca-Love Bracelets stop in and provide some extra styling as well. I want my senior girls to feel as beautiful as they are- professional hair & make up is provided for every session! Cristina is my Go-To girl for enhancing their best features while staying age appropriate. The outpouring of tears when Emily saw her look completed speaks volumes. I think we all shed a tear when she couldn't hold hers back. Just me? :) It made my heart very happy to see that she felt so beautiful and I could not wait to get her on location at the gorgeous spot I had chosen for her here in The Woodlands, TX. When scouting I immediately thought this would make a great Senior Spot. The light during her sunset portrait session was absolutely breathtaking and made for a lovely, warm backdrop. This location provides an amazing set of steps, a modern pergola with tons of vines and greenery, some great colored backdrops and more! Emily was a natural in front of the camera and we had a great time working through poses. I've compiled my favorites for you to enjoy- and I hope that you do!!

Mommy and Me | The Woodlands, TX | Family Photography

As a mother of three, one of my absolute favorite types of sessions to book are the oh so special Mommy and Me portraits! These are the images that will document the everlasting love you have for your children, and the love they have for you in return. When photographing these session I aim to capture the connection and bond you have.  I love when you play and interact and talk about what you love most about each other. The little faces and expressions you get are beyond adorable and I hope they are what will tug at your heart strings when looking back on these heirloom images. When Nikki and I had our initial styling consultation she said she wanted a bohemian feel that incorporated some femininity. She choose a long crimson dress with delicate straps, and a flowing cream top with floral print leggings for her little one. The both looked stunning! All of my sessions come with digital files for easy sharing online, and most include a print credit as well. I urge you to print the images you wish to pass down. Discs and USB drives can often fail, but the paper images that I rummage through at my grandmother's house have never failed us. A yearly family album is a great way to archive your growing love for one another.

Randal & Aaron's Sun Soaked Engagement Session | The Carriage House | Houston, Texas Wedding Photographer

One of the most exciting things about getting engaged is the portrait session that will follow. This is the perfect way to announce the big news to all of your friends and family, to show off the ring he so thoughtfully chose for you, and to capture this most exciting time in your lives. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who's been genuinely complimented- and there is not a compliment more genuine than the proposal of marriage. Your engagement portrait session can be scheduled at your wedding venue, like Randal and Aaron chose- Or I am always happy to provide a list of location options as well.  When you do choose to shoot at the venue where you will say your "I do's" it gives me a chance to look over the space and plan out how I will best document your wedding day.  Each and every portrait session with Us Plus Love includes a complimentary styling consultation where we will discuss the overall look and feel you would like to portray through these heirloom images. Outfit changes are permitted as time allows. Here are my favorites from Randal and Aaron's Engagement session at their wedding venue, The Carriage House Houston. I hope you'll enjoy the love and warmth that are radiating from these two.
