Words cannot express how much I love this family. Seriously. I have been so privileged to know the Houston’s over the last 7 years and watch as their family has grown. When I first met them, there were only two cute little ‘blondies’ and as you can see…things have changed since then!
They are a family that values exactly what they are. Family. They laugh a lot. They play a lot. And they love A LOT. Since I started my photography business, even from the very beginning almost three years ago, they have been my number one client. Melissa has been so gracious to see my interest and has sought me ought, giving me the opportunity to practice on her beautiful family. Our first family shoot was in the freezing November weather. It was about 30 minutes long because everyone was miserably cold…and I had VERY little idea of what I was doing. Surprisingly, we got some good shots but I think it is a true statement that every shoot we have done gets better and better! What a blessing to not only be able to witness such a wonderful Christ-centered family, but to have the privilege of capturing them.
When I was in Branson recently, Melissa and I spent some time dreaming up a themed shoot and I love the way it turned out! Matt and Melissa have the most beautiful photogenic children that it really is unfair to the rest of the world. However, I am certainly not complaining! We had a lot of fun dreaming it up and putting it together so I hope you enjoy some of my favorites.
Matt and Melissa, thanks for giving me a chance even in the beginning and for continuing to believe in my talents. It’s been a joy to watch your family these last 7 years and I look forward to many more! The Houston’s will always have a special place in my heart!
This sweet girl was a little distracted by her fruit snacks…but she’s still the cutest thing ever.
Ok, so talk about melt your heart. That smile is award winning…
The one boy in the family (besides Dad of course). Got to hold his own.
What a cutie…and those blue eyes are a photographer’s dream.
LOVE this shot.
This girl is seriously the most thoughtful little girl ever. She has an old soul and I love it!
The oldest. And what a good job she does at it! Can’t believe she is as grown up as she is!
Bubbles are the best for photo shoots.
And glitter confetti…
All of these cuties were in a wedding recently and so we wanted to get some good pics of them in their wedding outfits. They were ridiculously cute. Especially this little one who decided she’d cheese it up for my camera.
Talk about handsome.
I promise I did not pose this. She is just a natural.
She has been a silly band fan since the beginning and is still rockin’ them today. I love her dedication.
So grown up and such a beautiful little girl.
We had a mover but I love this shot anyway!
Again, what a beautiful family.
