San Antonio Botanical Garden | Family Photography

I hadn’t been to the San Antonio Botanical Garden in forever, and I’m not sure if I’ve even photographed here before.

So when Bianca, my longtime client, asked to go to take family photos, I was all about it. I love exploring new spots.

We went during winter and right after the snow storm, and even so, it was green and vibrant!

San Antonio Family Photography

The best way to get amazing photos for a great price

Mother’s Day is almost here (May 9), so this means it’s time for Motherhood Sessions!

Motherhood Minis are 30 minute sessions just for moms and your babies.

Isn’t it true that we always get great photos of our husband and kids or just kids? But how many times do we get in front of the camera? And everyone is smiling…

Yup! Usually never, unless it’s a quick selfie.

Let me handle getting everyone to look at the camera and capture those intimate moments of you and your babies (without having to convince dad to come along haha).

We made it through the snowpocalypse! But I think we are all enjoying the sunshine, am I right?!

This means spring is right around the corner and what a beautiful time for photos.

Spring Family Sessions

These sessions are usually 1-2 hours. I love having the time and freedom to get comfortable with your family, especially little ones, warm up, walk around, find great, new spots, catch the sunlight, have fun, play, and get all the amazing photos!

What I Learned From My Social Media Break

Social media breaks can be so beneficial, and if you’ve never done one, I encourage you to incorporate them regularly. I plan to.

At the beginning of the year, I felt God tug on me to do this break. I had done them for a few hours or half a day. I had done it with Facebook, where I deleted the application, but then found myself consumed with YouTube. I knew I needed a complete shut off from all of the voices that were coming at me.

I needed to shut off all of the commentary, opinions, sellers, trends, competitors.

I needed to shut it all off because I was having a hard time hearing the voice of the One who matters.

He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”

Happy Birthday, Andrew!

It’s Andrew’s birthday today, and I felt like writing a short reflection about this day because it’s more than just a birthday for me. It’s a reminder of what I went through.

Andrew is a promise fulfilled. It’s amazing to be able to hold a tangible promise in my arms. And the fact that he is a literal ball of joy is simply wonderful.

He is such a gift to our family and I’m just so grateful to God for being so faithful in this journey of motherhood — the good and difficult.

Happy New Year, See You Soon!

[ I’m still taking San Antonio Family Photography sessions! ]

Hello, Happy New Year and also goodbye!

Not really but yes really.

As I was asking God for a word for 2021, I heard him say: contentment.

At first I brushed it off. As an enneagram 1, I’m all about productivity and getting things done, and contentment sounded to be like settling or doing nothing.

But God quickly changed my perspective. He said: I want you to find contentment in me above all else; to be satisfied; to come to me, the well of living water, when you’re thirsty.

It is hard to admit, but I’ve been going to the wrong well. I’ve been going to the Instagram well for gratification, likes, well done’s, and good job’s.

I think it’s hard for anyone who’s job is on social media where there is reward in gaining followers and attention.

So, it’s time for a little break.

Family Mini Sessions | San Antonio Photography

Surprise! I am offering family mini sessions this December.

Every year I get a few families who just want photos for a Christmas card, and I love doing them for my family and friends, so I will be offering this option for my clients.

I don’t usually do family minis because I love to take my time and really get some intimate moments, but I totally understand not everyone has the time or means to do a full session.

San Antonio Family Photography

I was so excited to meet Samie and her family for a summer session. It’s not very common for me to be busy in the summer, but with COVID-19 interrupting spring, I think every is needing some time in the outdoors.

Samie’s husband, Roland, is a San Antonio police officer, and what a great time to honor him and this service and pray for our officers as well as the black community who is in pain too.

I immediately said yes when Samie asked if they could do a few with Roland’s uniform.

Samie, her three children, and husband were so much fun to work with. These two siblings truly love each other and were so nice to me and each other. It was beautiful.
