Sweet Baby Boy {San Antonio Newborn Photographer}

Here's another session from a while ago that I just loved...  A friend from Turkey came home to Houston to have her little miracle, and I jumped at the chance to drive over and celebrate with her!  Now this little guy is two years old and has a sweet baby sister.  I hope mama has fun looking back and wondering where her tiny peanut went!

Away Too Long - Poor Blog! {San Antonio Family Photographer}

I'm not entirely sure how it's been so long since I posted anything here.  Don't scroll down and look how long!!  Don't do it!  ;)  Ok... go ahead.  I do want you to browse around! I will say in my defense that a trans-Atlantic move, a new baby, and a deployment can kind of throw a wrench in the works. Then before long, the routine is not so much a routine, and the workflow goes out the window!    But I have not been absent from working, and I have had some lovely, fun clients here in San Antonio in the meantime.  :)

If you've been around before, you'll notice that I have a shiny new blog layout.  Look left!  You can follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.  (I loooove Pinterest, and Instagram is so fun!  Join me there to see what makes me really tick!  Ha!)  Mouse over a picture!  See that shiny new "Pin It" button?  I'd be ever so glad if you pinned some of your favorite images! 

Now that's out of the way - a post!  I've come back to my blog because I'm doing some extensive portfolio review and I'm feeling nostalgic.  Plus, things are really picking up now that we are fairly settled in Texas, our oldest is off to school in the fall, and I have so many gorgeous sessions to share with you. 

This is my very last session in Turkey, oh so many months years (!) ago.  Our very good friends, too.  I was remembering how much fun we had together, and I'm super excited that they are going to be much, much closer to us very soon! 

Turkish Mosque Family Photographs

At the time, we only had one kiddo, and these cuties were turning one and three years old  Can't wait to see what our five- and three-year-olds get up to! (Plus an extra who's almost two!)  We had a lot of fun with these Birthday cakes - little guy looked a bit like Godzilla stomping all over that awesomely huge number 1!

Missing Spring {San Antonio Family Photography}

I love the holiday season, but Spring is definitely my favorite time of year.  I love the just-right weather and the light hanging on till later.  Here's a little taste of Spring - it'll be here before we know it!  The days are longer as of today...

Spring Family Photo (What to Wear)

Pretty easy on the eyes, this family!  :)
And this is easily one of my top ten photos of the entire year.  I just adore it - such a beauty!

First Cake Smash {San Antonio Toddler Photographer}

So messy and so much fun! The little guy kept looking at his mom and I like he couldn't believe he was actually supposed to dig into the cake. Hilarious. I'd love to do more of these. I like to keep it light and airy with pastel colors that stay true when smashed up! :)

Blue Cake Smash, One Year

Of course, we had some time to grab some shots outside before the mess ensued!

Momtographer Tip of the Day {San Antonio, Texas Child Photographer}

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer! I thought I'd do a personal post today. Keeping my little guy busy has been fun and challenging as we move through the middle of year two. He's into everything, and it's amazing watching him with new craft materials and activities.

I've been trying to capture all these little moments and wanted to throw out a tip for when you are trying to do the same. Get down on your child's level for some shots, and zoom in on those details! It adds interest to your set of photos, and it will help you remember the size of your child at that age and exactly what fascinated them about the activity or project.

Kid Detail Collage

I'm printing this collage on aluminum to include in a cluster of cork and colored dry-erase board squares. I can't wait to see how it turns out...

Stay cool, and snap away!


Here's a snapshot of the entrance to our house with the high-gloss aluminum print. Self-stick dry-erase and cork squares from the Board Guys. I love how this turned out! Bonus - the metal print can be written on with dry-erase markers as well if you want to incorporate that into the design.
