I'm so happy to be able to share this session with you! It has been about three years since I had shot a maternity session and that my friends is just too long! Christina was pregnant with her second boy and she looked absolutely stunning!
For this session we both agreed to keep it very simple and natural. Christina's long ivory dress seem to fit in perfectly for the mood and style we were going for! It was a relaxed session with the other two men in her life showing up
We started our session a little late.... but that didn't matter to the Elizondo family, as soon as they arrived we jumped right into the session. From the get go I knew this was going to be a great session. Yadira and her husband have such a sweet and fun personality, Sebastian their adorable baby boy was the most serious out of the three of them! We decided the bay on South Padre Island had the best light and chose to stick around that area. I even got to catch some of Sebastians smiles, thank you so much for letting me capture your family! I enjoyed meeting you all so much!
The Mata family was so much fun! They are the most laidback family I've had the privelgege of photographying I met them the day of our session and Mom had one request for me, to take as many un-posed, fun photos as possible. This was a first for me, we took only one posed family photo and from there we were off! We agreed the bay area would work best and their youngest was in love with water. She didn't mind if they got wet, sandy or dirty. She really wanted to capture her family just having fun at South Padre.! You can tell they really enjoyed themselves.

There's 3 things Mayra loves, her family, her dog (Trixie), and Starbucks! With her birthday just around the corner I came up with a fun idea, what if we could get Trixie- her dog BFF- and her in matching flower crowns, and what if I could document that? I mean, what dog lover wouldn't want photos with their best buddy! Mayra was overjoyed with the concept! I know I'm a bit biased, but I absolutely LOVE how the photos turned out! Here are some of my favorites and for the record, I'd love to do more sessions with pets!

Jessica does incredible makeup! So incredible that I wanted to recommend her to one of my brides! Which is how I first spoke to her on the phone, little did I know she was searching for a photographer at the time for a family session! The rest as they say is history..... The Martinez family is awesome! They all have this fun, easy going vibe; to say the least they were awesome to work with! Here are some of my favorites!
It wasn't your typical sunny summer day, in fact it was quite windy and dark, but we braved it anyway! The boy's had a ton of fun with the sand and played and I loved the color coordination Daisy chose for her family!, the different hues of blues looked amazing and worked so well at the beach. Daisy and Jose you have three amazing boys and a beautiful family !
