Meet Ili this cutie patootie is the inspiration behind Silly Ili's, the Sugar Land based business taking mom's of little girls by storm! The boutique specializes in making custom tutus, costumes, and dresses- literally bringing imagination to life!

Perseverance...{Child & Family Lifestyle Photographer Katy, TX}

Perseverance. That is what it has taken to get this beautiful family of four in front of my lens! We have battled weather, illness, and time changes. Seasons have come and gone since our initial session. Yet, we did it! M Family I am proud to have had the opportunity to photograph you all. Thank you for being so gracious and patient. You a have been a DREAM to work with. So, without further ado... your sneak peek.

Friday Night Lights...{Engagement Lifestyle Photographer Katy, Tx}

They met under the Friday night lights years ago. He caught her eye from across the stadium and she was intrigued. She watched as he wrapped ankles, tested knees, and tended to injuries. It started innocent enough, a glance here and there, a shy "hello" in passing. College put physical distance between the two for years. A lifetime of long distance and late night calls is coming to an end as C & L celebrate their engagement and look forward to starting a new life together. Congratulations you two! I had an amazing time with you both and am honored to call you friends...even if you aren't Aggies. Enjoy your sneak peek!

Mr. N...{Child Lifestyle Photographer Katy, TX}

With the soft melodic sounds of nature all around us, it was cool as we searched the farm for the perfect starting place to showcase Mr. N and his handsome smile. Being that is was just before sunset, and Mr. N's bed time, he was amazing to put up with me and my camera! Mr. N's momma won the Holiday Mini Session I gave away at the Mommy Swagger Expo back in August. S, I am so glad that you won this session! You have an incredible young man and I had a great time getting to know you both. Thank you for driving out to see me and the privilege of photographing your sweet boy!

I just love this first image...and french fries!
There is nothing like a little motivation to make a session run smoothly. It happens every session especially when there are little ones involved. For this handsome little man it was french fries! Who can resist their warm crunchy saltiness!?

Mr. N you look like you belong in a catalog! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Sapphires and Emeralds...

All I know is that these are the two most adorable kids I have ever met....(after my own of course). Both have been blessed with eyes so gorgeous you would think they were precious stones. Mr. H, sapphires and his little sister, Miss A, emeralds. I have known these two since they were little bitty bundles of joy. Now, they are big bundles of energy and giggles. I had such a great time with them. This first image reminds me of the love/not so much love relationship siblings have...

Enjoy your sneak peek mom and dad, you worked just as hard as I did!

Love and Longevity {Child & Family Lifestyle Photographer Katy, TX}

Jack, a WWII veteran, sits patiently with his bride of 60 years by his side. Both enjoying the playfulness of their great grandchildren romping and rolling in the hay meadow. A daughter's fateful encounter and years of longing have lead to this day. This hot, humid, sticky day. Everyone in the family is here. Finally. I am honored to have been asked to capture such a rare display of a family's love and longevity. It was a pleasure working, dancing, chasing, and sweating with you all! May you be blessed with many more healthy and happy years together!

Happy 1/2 Birthday M!

My little man is 6 months old this month so last weekend we loaded up the kids and the car and headed to my in laws farm for a little mini session. I love being out there...
"The Old House" (as everyone in the family refers to it), with its old farm house feel and charm made the perfect back drop to make my vision come alive. Of course I am a little biased, as every mother should be, however, I just adore the following images. M's eyes and A's quirkiness just make my heart melt!

Thought I would share a couple of semi recent images of my loves.... no reason really, just feeling completely blessed and an overwhelming since of joy being a mom of two precious children. We are headed to the coast this weekend to spend time with family we haven't seen in a about a year. Looking forward to doing some catching up, relaxing and sleeping in!

Happy Friday All!

The M Fam....

One of the things I love most about this gig is watching families grow and change over the years. I first photographed this couple in a maternity session while they were anticipating the arrival of their little girl, and then again when Miss D made her debut! As always, I had a wonderful time spending the morning with you M family! Enjoy your sneak peek!!
