Charlotte
First Birthday Portraits | McAllen, Texas

Earlier this week I photographed a beautiful baby girl who recently turned one year old. I hadn't seen little Charlotte since last summer when I first met and photographed her. She was timid but in such a cute way. This little one is just a tiny but older than my little one so it was really cute to see them meet each other. 

I photographed Charlotte at the newest RGV Cupcake Factory in McAllen, Texas. It is a lovely and bright place, serving as a charming backdrop for these sweet and candid portraits.

You have a beautiful baby girl Sabrina! Thank you for allowing me to photograph her.

Have a great day friends! 

Business + Clients

I have the best job ever. Furthermore, I have the best clients - ever. 

I catch myself saying this often but the reality is that I truly mean it. The people that I work for, the ones who hire me, make my job enjoyable and the work that I produce work that I love. Most importantly, they make my job more than merely a job. In weddings, I am often a dress holder, veil catcher, eyelash gluer, and many, many more. I am also constantly asked to sit down at a pretty table and enjoy a lovely meal. "Put down the camera! Eat! Have a little fun!" 

On portrait jobs, my clients often volunteer to carry my gear, hold a reflector, and simply just want to chat. And often, they still want to feed me. My goodness, you people are amazing! Yesterday I photographed a sweet little girl who has recently turned one. I met her last year when she was tiny and this year she is still gorgeous. The best part, I was able to bring my little one with me, and we were treated to some delicious cupcakes. Yum! After our session, we just couldn't help but stroll down the convention center, enjoy our treat, and simply enjoy the fact that I can be a stay at home mom, do work that I love, and spend my time with a sweet little princess who calls me mom. 

My little one and I enjoyed a day's work and treats afterwards, as did the new baby in my tummy.
