These are a few of my favorite things....

Listening to Christmas Carols 

Baking and decorating cut out cookies

Watching old Christmas classics like White Christmas or Miracle on 34th Street

and witnessing the sheer excitement of a child experiencing the magic of Christmas!

The Christmas season brings back memories of years past and the special traditions that are shared.  This year my family is going to enjoy a white Christmas in Breckenridge, CO.  We're so excited, but of course it won't be the same not being at home.  We have assured Addyson that Santa will know that she's going to be in Colorado on Christmas and will make sure to visit her there.  We're hoping to make some great memories that will stay with us forever. 

Another one of my favorite things are my awesome clients!  Seriously, it is because of all of YOU that my dream of being a photographer has come true.  It is because of YOU that I get to develop new relationships and friends - and I get to capture memories that your family will treasure for a lifetime. 

I'm excited to see what opportunities are ahead in 2011 and I look forward to offering your families with the best!  So from Homegrown Photography and The Voelkel Family, here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year!

Keeping up with the Joneses | Cypress, TX Family Photographer

The Jones family really knew how pull off a fantastic wardrobe for their photo session...thanks to mom, Annette.  The girls are stunning and I'm sure their dad is going to have to whip out the shotgun pretty soon to start scaring away the boys who are going to be beating down their door!

Here are a few of my favorites from their shoot:

Thanks Jones family - it was a pleasure and I hope to work you again!

A Little Bundle of Parker | Carmine, TX Family Photographer

Is it just me or is this month on fast forward?  Life has certainly been flying be for me lately and I've
been falling behind in blog posts.  The weekend before Thanksgiving I got to meet a really cute couple from Carmine that was enjoying life with their new little man Parker.  

They decided to meet over at The Shelby for their photo session.  Suzanne was one of my favorite clients - I puffy heart her!  She brought items for wardrobe changes, was open for all types of posing ideas - and she wins the award for the fastest order placed - EVER!  

Thanks again guys - it was a great pleasure working with your family and I can't wait to work with you and watch Parker grow!
