I’m not kidding when I say that the past few months have been FULL of tiny little adorable newborn sessions that made my heart swell. Going back through the images to post them here on the blog makes me feel just as happy as the day I photographed them, thankful for such sweet families to work with and the joy that comes with shooting newborn sessions. I adore watching families grow and capturing memories in those first few crazy weeks that follow a new addition. Everyone is usually tired, perhaps a little overwhelmed at times, but their happiness and immense joy always shines through and I love capturing that. Not to mention getting to love on squishy, smiley, cuddly babies like Ryan. He was the most expressive little guy I’ve had in front of my camera in a while and I loved every minute.

 

Big hugs, Rainbolt family!!

When I heard what her name would be, my heart melted. I love the name June, y’all. Positively pretty and southern and sweet. It was perfect for her, I just knew it, and she wasn’t even here yet! But if you knew Leah and Cade, you’d know what I mean. Then when I saw June herself, I became a big ol puddle. She is THE sweetest little thing. I loved having her in front of my camera and capturing these special photos of her (and that darling nursery inspired by all things Anthropologie!). Favorites abound…

Lots of sessions to get caught up with on the blog, and what better way to kick off my blogging marathon that with this extra special at-home newborn session for miss Charlene? With an Anthropologie-esque nursery that mom carefully and perfectly curated, and the most precious girlie accessories… it’s just dreamy.

 

Robert, Veronica — thank you! I loved getting to spend the morning with you and your sweet Charlie.

I have some big news to share today…and a giant bag of mixed emotions to go with it so bear with me. I ramble. We wanted to wait until everything was finalized, and the time has officially come (gulp). In just a few short weeks, we will be packing up our house (yes, again!)…DAVIShouseand moving… to Dallas/Fort Worth.

 

After ten years of calling Houston home, we are very sad to be leaving the life and relationships we’ve built here, but look forward to being closer to both of our families and the exciting journey we have ahead. I can’t share everything just yet, but God is pointing us toward some pretty incredible things and I know that He has a perfect plan for us.

 

I hope I can continue to capture life’s precious moments for you, my Houston area friends, because you guys have been the greatest supporters and encouragers of this little business of mine, and I know that without a doubt I have gotten to work with the VERY best of the best. Every session has blessed me and I just can’t imagine not working together because of a few miles. Road trip!! I will be in Houston a lot in the coming months, and available to shoot if anyone wants to take advantage while I am in town. And rest assured, I will always continue to offer seasonal minis in Houston (spring and fall) and will travel back to shoot for my clients as much as I can!

 

I am filled with all of the feels that comes with facing a big change like this; the new, and the unknown overwhelm me at times! So please pray for our family in the coming months, and know that we take with us so many wonderful memories and friendships from our time as Houstonians. It will always be a part of me, and CDP.

 

  • Jennifer Hunt Foster - Oh Gosh!! I’m so going to miss you but will ALWAYS jump at a chance to do your minis when you come back in town every fall. May God’s plan be more than you could ever imagine.

  • Jamie Valendy - Oh, wow! Huge news! I’ll definitely be holding you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I know that these decisions are huge, but trusting God’s plan is always the best choice. And, hey, maybe I’ll see you around in DFW!July 27, 2016 – 10:12 PMReplyCancel

OK DFW, here are YOUR sign-ups for the fall minis! Who is ready?? It’s officially time for HALFWAY to the HOLIDAYS, my annual promo for reserving a coveted fall mini session spot right now, for sessions in October. It’s honestly my favorite set of mini sessions to photograph. Just like the Houston locations, I chose some really special spots for us this year so see below for details. The links for sign-up options are noted by each each location’s description. As always, remember that spots fill up SUPER fast so if you want one, reserve it as soon as you can! Once they’re booked, that’s it for the year.
 
 
OPTION ONE: NATURAL LIGHT STUDIO (morning) 10/23

Think concrete floors, fresh light, a variety of furniture, the option of whitewashed distressed brick, clean walls, gorgeous industrial windows, and an ivy-covered wall outside. This location has it all! I will have a few holiday themed styled setups that I will explain in detail closer to the sessions when I email you the specific information, but the best part is that we will work together beforehand to curate a set that’s special and unique to you and your family! If you’d like to book a spot at this location, click HERE

OPTION TWO: NATURAL OUTDOOR SETTING (afternoon/evening) 10/15
This kind of location is my go-t0 for the overall style that I shoot in. Great light, green backdrop, untouched fields with tall trees — it’s my favorite :) This year, I am offering a spot that I haven’t used before — it has a ton of options to choose from: open field with tall grass, dirt paths surrounded by old trees, trails… Located near Plano, it’s a truly fantastic spot where we can add cozy blankets or other fun items to customize your session. We will work closely to plan any ideas that you have so the experience and images are extra special.  If you’d like to book a spot at this location, click HERE

Thanks a bunch! I look forward to working with you this fall!
