Again, I seem to have fallen into radio silence. So much has been happening since my last post. I was blessed to take on a part-time data entry job for a local company, which I can do from home! Life was pretty dull in that moment when I accepted the position, but then seriously EXPLODED immediately after as my husband surprised me with a kitchen renovation for our 5 year anniversary! And me, being the DIY-er, decided it'd be great if we did it all ourselves! HA! Between working on backsplashes and cabinet refacing, volunteering on community events, events with friends and family, doing shoots, taking care of my almost two-year old and, you know, the general cooking and cleaning and making sure we all stay a live and well - I honestly can barely keep my head on straight these days! And it all just snowballed on one after another, so before I knew it, this is where I was! As exhausting as it is, it's also exciting in a way.
Even more exciting was completing my first maternity shoot with this wonderful couple in a brand new location! I had a feeling Maternity would be one of the areas my heart truly lies, and that turned out to be true. It's such a special, intimate, exhilarating time and I'm so blessed to have been able to capture that for this wonderful family. Little baby Louis is so lucky to be coming into this world surrounded by so much love.
We shot these at Eleanor Tinsley Park in downtown Houston. It was my first time shooting here and we encountered some very unexpected scenarios, from the sprinklers all going off while we were shooting the very first photo below, to a random bicyclist wanting his portrait done as well! We handled them all with much grace! This location is actually very dear to Sarah's heart. She told me how each year her dad would take her to this hill to take a new picture of her. It was important to her that such a precious time be documented right there, where she has been creating special memories with her own family for so many years. To already begin sharing that with her baby is something I'm so honored to have captured. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of history.
