Parker's Special Day | Brenham Birthday Party Photographer

One year ago on October 13, 2010, Justin and Suzanne started a new chapter in their lives.  One that would forever change their outlook on the world and would show them what it really means to love a child.  Over the past year, I have had the distinct honor of photographing their budding family.  I was overjoyed when Suzanne asked me to photograph Parker's 1st Birthday Party earlier this month!

Suzanne went all out and took care of every detail.  This woman amazes me - she was able to pull together this party all while finishing her graduate degree, working as a teacher, being a wife and a MOM....I nominate you Super Woman!

Lots of friends and family took part in Parker's special day and enjoyed the fun activities....

When the time finally came for the birthday boy to blow out his candles, he knew exactly how to dig in to his birthday cake.  YUM!

Happy Birthday Parker and congratulations to Justin and Suzanne for surviving your first year as parents!  Thanks again for letting me be a part of your special day :)

2011 Merry + Bright Holiday Sessions | Brenham, TX Family Photographer

I don't know about y'all, but these years just keep sneaking by faster every year.  I can't believe that we've got less than 100 days left before the fat man squeezes down the chimney!  And being the procrastinator that I am - I'm just now getting my act together with the 2011 Holiday better late than you go!

Sessions will be VERY limited this year as I have a million things in my schedule right now.  The sessions will be in the evening starting at 5:15 pm and only 3 spots will be available each evening....

The dates available are:

  •           Saturday, October 22 & Sunday, October 23 
  •           Friday, November 4 & Saturday, November 5
Exact locations are still to be determined, but they will most likely take place in either Brenham or Industry and within 25 miles of 78940.

I will have new holiday card selections this year, as well as the selections from 2010 to choose from.   The new card selections will be posted in the next couple of days.

What a difference a year makes! | Carmine, TX Child Photographer

Living in a small town is something I'm really starting to love.  We've been in Shelby for a year and a half now and we get to enjoy the simple things in life.  Weekends usually consist of a church or fireman's feast that helps to benefit the church or community.  The food is always delicious and plentiful, there are games for the kids and above all else, there's fellowship.  Now that we've been attending these functions for so long, we have started to get to know more people and we feel as though we belong there now - instead of being some visitor.

Over the summer we attended the Carmine VFD Feast, which serves the best fried chicken you've ever tasted....besides, of course, the Shelby fried chicken that you can get each year at the St. Paul's Lutheran Church fundraiser on October 21st...just sayin!

Anyway, so at the Carmine VFD Feast I ran into my past clients, Suzanne and Justin, and I was so excited when they asked if I would be available to take pictures of their son Parker who is turning ONE this month!  Suzanne is one of the best clients you could ask for.  She has lots of great ideas, brings props, dresses her family really cute - you get the idea - she rocks!

So a couple of weeks ago, I got to take pictures of this little cutie ....what a difference a year makes!
