These images hit close to home because in them are my niece and nephew (and their parents, of course)! I’m so grateful that we captured their little lives and expressions from this very specific time period. Shortly after this session Gage started walking (he could waddle a few steps at this point) and Sadie had a big growth spurt. They change so fast!
We started this session out with some posed portraits which Gage obliged but was not loving. We got what we needed from that and then just played around after that. Lots of spinning, tickling, and laughing – those images turned out to be my favorites. Love these monsters!
This photo session was really fun for me, because these are my neighbors. Carla and Jed, owners of Riata Builders, were my first non-family friends in Georgetown. They built my 2 sisters’ homes and are currently working with me to build my home. They’ve been so kind and welcoming to the whole family and have been extremely patient with me as I go back and forth with my floorplans!
This family portrait takes place on their land with their 3 sons and 2 new daughters-in-law, right where they are planning to build their own home. I think it’s so cool that they can display a print in their home that was taken in that exact same spot before the house was even built. We’ll have to do a “before and after comparison” for grins.
It was lots of fun goofing off with everybody, but the highlight of that day for me was at the end of the session. I pulled them aside, played a George Strait song, and asked them to dance with each other. The look they gave me was priceless, but they were game and it was a really sweet moment. I’ve seen them dance together before, and their love for each other really shines through, I knew that I needed to capture those looks.
I can’t wait to continue working with them, and building our friendship. Hopefully one day we’ll get some images of their future grandkids playing in those same trees.
I had so much fun working with Claire! She is so full of energy and up for anything. Besides being a full time student, she is also Varsity Cheer Captain, Vice President of the FFA, works, volunteers, and has an avid social life! She is an extremely impressive person, and it has been a blast getting to know her and her family.
Being new to Georgetown, it’s been so fun exploring! Claire had some really cool spots for me to check out, and while driving around location scouting, I found a ton more! You gotta love this Texas landscape – bridges, rivers, pastures, trees, old barns – after a decade in San Francisco it’s been a while since I’ve had this much access to nature, and it’s been so fun exploring it!
Thanks Claire and parents for being so great, I’m truly excited to see all that you accomplish in life!
