Houston Heights Photographer | Ice-Cream Parlor Sweetness
This family has such a special place in my heart. I was first their Houston Heights Photographer back when little Vivi was six-weeks old and then again at her first birthday. We’ve done a few family sessions since then, the most recent being a family portrait session photographed at the same location as this session in the Heights. Her mom wanted to recreate the shoot so that she could put both sessions on her Christmas card to show how much their little girl has grown. What a sweet idea!
Typically, I am a studio photographer. This session gave me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone. How lucky for me that I did, because we captured some truly stunning family shots. I couldn’t be happier with how this session turned out. Everything that day, from their perfectly styled outfits to the squeals of delight in the ice-cream parlor, left a mark on my heart. What could possibly be cuter than an adorable little ball of sweetness, dressed to the nines and draped in pearls. Swoon! <3
I’ve loved watching this family grow. When you work with someone as many times as we’ve worked together, it’s impossible not to create a bond and friendship. To date, this session has to be one of my favorites with Vivi’s family. The final portion of the session, at the ice cream shop was so incredibly sweet that I actually had tears in my eyes while capturing it. Having such a deep response to the beauty that flows so freely from this family reminds me why I adore being a photographer. I have the unique opportunity to witness and document one of the most sacred gifts on this earth; the love of a family.
