First Birthday Girl | The Woodlands, TX | Studio154 Photography

I love what I do, but I especially love what I do when I get to meet the sweetest little buttercups around!

Check out this little girls smile!! Mercy, she's precious, y'all. I've known her Mama for a long time, way before we were Moms. They made a trip to Houston from Dallas, and it was such a pleasure to meet the birthday girl and capture her sweetness. Hope her sunny personality brightens your day like it did mine! 

An Artists Maternity Shoot | The Woodlands, TX

Have you ever met someone that oozes creativity?

 You watch as they take something out of nothing and create a masterpiece! I had the privilege of photographing this incredible woman's maternity shoot. She is a local artist, who creates the most fascinating paintings. She is expecting her second baby boy. Being a boy mom (and artist) she isn't afraid to let things get messy!

Rainbow Baby Maternity Session | The Woodlands, TX Maternity Photographer | Studio154 Photography

I know the heart ache of infertility and pregnancy loss all too well, having been through a around of IVF and two miscarriages, I have a heart toward those who've had to journey through it. It's like a silent club we're in together, we mourn and comfort each other in the hard times, and we also celebrate and jump up and down in excitement during the good times! 

I've been fortunate to be able to celebrate having a rainbow baby. A rainbow baby is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.

I had this idea, this vision come to me for a photography shoot: Rainbow confetti falling from the sky on an expecting Mama! What better way to celebrate something amazing happening like throwing confetti all around? Who doesn't love confetti!? 

My sweet friend, Brittany  (who also participated in my beauty for ashes photography project last year), is currently pregnant with her precious rainbow baby, jumped on board to help make this idea a reality. With the help of some amazing creatives this vision came to life.
