Family Portrait Session: Sanchez

This is one of my oldest, dearest friends. We grew up together. I love her and her family.

A couple years ago when I was in San Francisco, I photographed her family of three. Then last year, after they'd grown to four.

Then in the perfect demonstration of how behind I am at posting, last week they welcomed Charlotte Sophie into the world, officially turning themselves into a family of FIVE! I think I'm going to be back in San Francisco around the beginning of October. Hopefully I'll get to photograph them again. And if you're in the area, let me know if you want to book a session to photograph you, too. 

Speaking of San Francisco, Melissa writes an awesome blog called Savvy in San Francisco. I've said before how she's always been the kind of person who knows something about everything. Whether you're flying to Paris and want to know the best place to have a picnic, or whether you're looking for the perfect nail polish, she is that friend that you call first. Which is why I was so thrilled when she started putting all of her amazing knowledge out into the world. 

Congrats again Sanchez fam! Love you. xoxo


Family Portrait Session: Bammel

I think this was our third or fourth session together. The first one was a belly shoot for their oldest. Sometimes it's hard to believe how fast families grow.

I love the Americana feel of this one.

Michelle is also a fantastic veterinarian. If you're in San Antonio and ever need one, I would definitely recommend her.


Family Portrait Session: DeWall

Remember my friend DeAnna? She's the Jewelry Whisperer. Her sister and brother in law recently had a baby. So I swung by to grab a few shots of them. 

I want to kidnap those biscuits. 

This one is my favorite. Sweet baby back.
 So pretty.

Come back tomorrow, I'm on a roll! :)


Family Portrait Session: Rodriguez

Gorgeous family. Fun summer session. 



More tomorrow! xo


Senior Portrait Session: Shelby

Lately Epiphanie takes up most of my time, but I still try to work in a few sessions per month. And I'll be offering ONE DISCOUNTED SESSION this year! So keep a look out for that. Or let me know if you want to be added to the first to know email list. The location is going to be awesome, and spaces will be limited. 

In other news, today we're leaving for New York. And this time I'm being realistic enough to know that I won't have time to blog while I'm there. So I thought it would be a good time to catch up on the sessions that have been stacking up. I'm setting them to post every day until we get back. After that, hopefully I'll be back to blogging real(ish) time again.

So, first up: Stunning Shelby. I photographed her sister eight years and four studios ago. I was amazed and happy that her mom was able to find me after so much time. It was great to see them again, and to be around that wonderful carefree energy that is so unique to being 18. I wrote a little more about it here

I'd forgotten how disgustingly photogenic teenagers are. I mean LORD... 
And one with Mom, always. Thank you Laurie and Shelby!

If you want to follow us in New York, I'm sure I'll be overdosing on tourist-y instagram uploads here and here. :)
