Fall Sessions at The Tunnel

The Tunnel was my favorite location this past fall because it was NEW and it was so so green.  I loved it.  And it has a photographer's favorite thing: a built in frame!  The cement tunnel was such a cool "in photo" frame.  Thanks to all of my amazing clients that took a chance on an unknown location and trusted me!!

Quick Sessions-Saturday Morning in Cypress | Houston, Katy, and Cypress Family Photographer

I have been doing short sessions this fall to accommodate as many clients as I can, while still spending a lot of time on the weekends with my family.   It's been so much fun to see all of my repeat clients and great to meet a couple of new ones.

Here are a few of the images from a couple of weekends ago.

Baby G | Houston, Katy, and Cypress Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

Baby G was such a delight.  The only time he cried was when he was hungry, which didn't happen until the very end.   My favorite part of our session was when we had his older doggie brother come and pose with Baby G.  Love it when pets become the protectors of sweet little babies.  Thanks for letting me be a part of your little miracle, G Family!

Enjoy!

F Family Maternity Session | Houston, Katy, and Cypress Maternity Photographer

My best friend from 5th grade is having a baby!  She and her husband are one of the best couples I know and will be spectacular parents.  I'm so grateful that they let me use them as guinea pigs at basically every session we have together.

I love how these turned out and can't wait to meet their little girl!

Mister N | Houston, Katy, and Cypress Newborn Photographer

A couple of weeks ago, I got to meet the adorable Mister N.  He was such a good baby, though he didn't want to sleep for me most of the time. That was okay because he was happy being awake!  I guess he just didn't want to miss a moment of his first photo shoot.  At the very end, I tricked him into sleeping, but this little guy is definitely cute awake or asleep! 

Congrats again H Family!  Enjoy!
