I am so excited to finally announce what I’ve been working on for so long, my year long subscription package!

I’ve been doing an unofficial version of this for some time now, documenting a family multiple times over the course of a year or multiple years. I absolutely love it. It is literally my life’s work and passion. With increased requests, I’ve decided to formalize it to streamline everything for everybody. It’s a series of pre determined and floating portrait sessions to comprehensively document your family, at whatever stage they are in, over a year. The progression of time and how small, subtle changes can transform a person has always fascinated me. And of course, since becoming a mother, I’ve been equally obsessed and horrified with how much kids grow.

There’s a maternity to first birthday package called “the third, fourth & fifth trimester” and one for families with children of any age. Availability is limited so book now!

This was a wonderfully intimate session at home with the Rivera Family; I love how much of their personalities came thru from their Longhorn pride to their history as Ranchers. I often leave a session feeling a sense of warmth having had the opportunity to witness another family with so much love and in the case of the Rivera family, it was so so strong. Rafael, you are one very lucky little boy.

If you know me well, you’ll know that I’m my happiest around a lot of kids and a lot of food. Throw in the opportunity to do photography and I’m just in heaven. I had been looking forward to this job for the better part of a year, ever since this sweet momma reached out to me, while only a few months pregnant, to ask if I would document her growing family’s Saturday morning breakfast tradition. Over the months leading up to our session, I had the pleasure of really connecting with this family and after their newest addition, Charlie was born (on my birthday!) I spent the loveliest morning taking part in and documenting their sweet morning routine.
