4 and 9/10th Family Shoot

The Shafer family wanted to memorialize life before birth of their third child, so we headed to the studio. As always, the kids are the most fun to photograph, but at the same time they can be the greatest challenge.

Bad Q1

Bad Q2

Fortunately we had a lot of Gummy Bears to keep smiles on their faces, but it was still a challenge to get all eyes focused on the camera.

Even Daddy was thinking of that candy!

Mommy was a good model, and in the end we got a great family photo for their future home.

Good Pic

Thanks Shafer family! We look forward to seeing your 5th addition!

Carrie Ann’s Fall Fashion Mixer

Carrie Ann’s is a women’s apparel and dog accessories store in Uptown Park, by the Galleria.  Carrie puts on these mixers once every few months for the public and they are always a success!  During this Fall Fashion Mixer she had hors d’oeuvre from McCormick and Schmick, wine, a hair stylist, makeup artist, live DJ and also someone administering Botox injections just in case you needed some.  Oh, I almost forgot, and a photographer! 😀   The party was definitely there!

Most of all the guests this night were popular fashion bloggers around Houston.

Raiyah and Dylan’s Day

Ashton Gardens in Houston Texas is an amazing place to have a wedding.

The chapel looks quaint from the outside, but the inside is pretty amazing…

There is also a lot of natural light in the reception hall…

The wedding itself, was beautiful!  The bride and groom seemed to glide through the day without even noticing the camera. And the family and friends where so wonderful it was often hard to tell who was who.
