Angelina's Senior Portraits

Meet Angelina. We started the session at a little cafe in Rice Village and then headed to Rice University.

One of my favorites. Angelina requested her parents to be a part of her senior portrait session and it is so heartwarming to see their close bond.

My client is awesome! Not only is she gorgeous and fun to work with.. she even brought her own balloons for the shoot!

This was my first Senior Portrait session and I really liked how these turned out! Congrats on your graduation!

I heart springtime

I've never been very good at taking care of my plants. My dad has always been an amazing gardener and I've admired his ability to cultivate and care for his garden. The cover of last summer's J.Crew catalog was this model with this giant flower pin that resembled an English rose. I saw that and had to have it- well, really I decided to try and grow them. I researched everything about rose care including yearly pruning, soil amendment, supplements, what's best for our region, disease resistance, hardiness, etc before beginning. A year later, I am really quite pleased with how my English roses are doing. It took a whole year in order to get blooms this big and abundant especially with the burning Texas heat. I have ordered more and am looking forward to planting them in the front flower bed (yes starting all over again). All my current ones except for 2 mini rose bushes were put in containers at the back of the house, near the detached garage, so we could enjoy seeing them when we drove home. The lighter pink roses has a light lychee fragrance- my new ones I just ordered (apricot color) smell even more amazing than these. Lots of work to do but very excited!

The Khuong Family

Meet the Khuongs! I could not have asked for a nicer spring day with such a lovely family.

Baby Kyler really liked my camera. Future photographer in the making!

Camden had ran off to explore a nearby patch of grass covered in these tiny daisy flowers. He picked one up and started picking off each petal one by one. I could not help but ask him if he had a girlfriend. =)

I leave you with my favorite from the set!

The An Family

First picture: Elyse + Her "Bubby" = OMG SO CUTE

Hi Readers,

I wanted to share some photos from a recent family shoot. We've been friends with Young and Angela for a long time now so I think its funny they just ignore me when I whip out my "big" camera- they have gotten so used to it by now. I guess it works out for me because they are very natural and comfortable while I am snapping away. You may recognize Angela from one of my previous posts. They are two of my biggest supporters of my work and open to my ideas to try out. I really appreciate this as friend and artist!

Anyways, they asked me to take some family pictures to be used for their Christmas cards this year and I obliged, of course. I do love photographing Elyse (toddler). I know kids generally do/say cute and silly things but Elyse is in a league of her own. She's fearless, very animated and already speaks with a southern accent! Her baby sister seems to be a bit more reserved and quiet. Its truly amazing to see how different their personalities are at such a young age. As always, thank you for letting me photograph your beautiful family!

Sammy and Irene in anticipation...

Dear Readers,

Hope you had a lovely and a not too hectic holiday this past week. My husband and I just came home from visiting our friends Sammy, Irene and their new baby girl. She is really super cute. She even makes cute faces when she poos. =) I have to mention that Rocky, their Malti-poo, has been a very good "big brother". I hear all time about dogs being jealous of new babies but he's been great! This session is one that is near and dear to me. We've been friends for years now, traveled together, Irene was one of my bridesmaids, we celebrated their awesome wedding in Mexico a couple of years ago and now they are welcoming their first child after almost 10 years of being together! I was honored when they asked me to capture these pre-parenthood moments for them. They even treated me to lunch at a pizza joint that offered gluten-free pizza! Enjoy!
