Our Christmas photo traditions - the Woodlands Family Photographer

The Christmas season is one of my most favorite times to shoot - everyone is happy, children are excited, everyone is giving, and thinking of the season.  We tour holiday lights with hot cocoa in our hands, and there is a sparkle in the room that brightens up the day and night by our Christmas tree.

A treelight session  - your tree, your home, your children, your life. 

By photographing your children with your Christmas tree, you can make your Christmas memories a part of your holiday decor.    So as those babies and children grow to teens and adults, each year you will still have those images of them to place about your home at Christmas.   This year, my 12 year old really enjoyed placing our photo ornaments the tree and seeing how old he was and when they were taken (I had written their ages and the year on the back least I forget in my old age!)  Our first photo cards was when my babies were 2 and 4, they are now 10 and 12, so I have one for each year!

And holiday cards - you might pay to have holiday cards taken every year?   Why not take those images and make them into a holiday ornament to be placed on your tree!!

Here you can see  Our tree light sessions over the years.   I've taken those images as well as our holiday card images for each year and created puzzles, one as a canvas, a metal print,  and metal/wood ornament.   THOSE are my most favorite - see below!!

My love for meadows goes on for many years - The Woodlands, Texas photographer

An oldie but a goodie from 2011 on my first DSLR Canon Rebel with the nifty fifty (long time gear ago!).

 I've always loved the softness and beautiful colors shooting in meadows, and this huge nature preserve was right next to our home, meaning right across the street. On the sunrise morning we shot this, there was a coyote bounding through the grass after a rabbit. I had to shoot and keep and eye out for that coyote! The littlest boy here became my son's best friend, and they still have me photograph their family after all these years.

Fast forward to 2018 and here we are again in another glorious meadow with this same family that has our hearts!   Sadly these children do grow!  No more lap sitting for these smart boys, but still lots of love and connection with mom and dad.

An astrophysicist from John Cooper - Woodlands senior photographer

This sweet girl, is now a senior at the John Cooper School in The Woodlands, and she wants to be an astrophysicist.   I just love this about her!  One night we met at a local park to capture her against the night sky - be sure to scroll down!    While I do need to perfect the night sky portrait a bit,  as it can be quite challenging, I'm so happy she was there to test it out with me.

Later we trekked down to a new-to-me location to photographer her portraits during the day time, in this beautiful green lush setting.

A big THANK YOU to this girl's sweet momma was so wonderful to spend time chatting with me before our move back to The Woodlands. She was so helpful in giving me great information about our local schools and how they handle dyslexia. I was so thankful for her time!

Gregg's Mist flower - macro photography in The Woodlands

 On my 3 mile walk one day in my Woodlands neighborhood I  came across a few deer running in a field, , a Great Blue Heron flying down into a swamp area, ,A Rosette spoonbill hunting,  and about 30 turtles.  A bit later I ran into my neighbor,  then we discovered this teeny purple flower and cool sun looking mushroom.

This flower is a Gregg's Mist flower and Monarch butterflies love the nectar from on this flower on their journey south to Mexico.   My neighbor really looked at this flower more closely than I did.  A couple of days after our walk I went back with my Canon and a macro lens to capture a few close ups of mainly the interesting mushrooms, and since this purple flower was nearby I took images of it as well.

WOW! I'm so impressed with  how amazing this flower is with the macro lens!!  It's teeny but this lens gives it so much drama!

My sweet Musicians - woodlands fine art photographer

Ya'll . . my babies.

Do yo remember when you started photography? Did you start learning photography with your own babies?

My oldest started violin lessons last year and my youngest started cello lessons this year.   It's been on my mind for the past year to take images of my oldest outside at sunset with his violin, but homework, relaxing and life happens.  This was the violin shoot that inspired me.

Oh and boys - did I mention boys?

I've seen this fine art series style before, mainly with girls.  So I just recently thought, "I think I can pull this together myself" for me and my boys.   And the cool things is that I didn't have to purchase a thing, we had everything right here. The  faux velvet burgundy jackets were from the holidays 2017, and the "ascot" is just a leftover piece of pretty fabric used in the past to make one of my ETSY handmade patchwork tents.

I'm so in love with these images, mainly cause it's so different from my normal art,  it's my babies and the reason I picked up a camera in the first place.  Our children still deserve beautiful images of them at every age!

A lovely engagement session on the waterway - woodlands photographer

Who would have thought that this man would become someone who knows my children well, and for so many years.

THIS is our karate instructor - Mr.  Cherian.  Anyone who knows my family well knows that we have been doing karate for years and we have been following this same instructor from gym to gym.  We are loyal, what can I say!

Once upon I time I photographed him doing karate kicks in the gym, now we are shooting his engagement session!  In a crazy turn of events, we moved to The Woodlands, and they had their family engagement party in the Houston area, so we met one hot day on the Woodlands Waterway.

Congrats you two!

 Side note:  If anyone is looking to give them a bid on a wedding in Dallas, please let me know. As I post this,  I think they are still looking for a wedding photographer!
