Can you believe it it’s already the end of January? One more month till spring and shorts season, but until then I will be enjoying this nice Houston Winter we are having. One thing I love about Winter to Spring fashion is the transitional colors of neutrals and pastels. You can’t grow wrong with any of those colors this time of year, and it’s a perfect time to start adding brighter colors to your wardrobe.
I’m loving this colder weather we are finally having down here in Houston! This New Year has been nothing but GO, GO, GO for this mama. In less than 2 weeks my little man will be turning one and I’ve been so busy preparing for his party. This year one of my new year’s resolution is to become better in the kitchen, so with the help of Pinterest I will be making his birthday cake and several other goodies for his birthday.
This week I got the pleasure to feature my beautiful friend and fellow momma photographer Amber Beach. Amber and I met when we both worked at Buckle. We both had a passion for fashion, and we also shared the same passion for photography. Amber has been there from the beginning helping me through my first year as a professional photographer. She is one of the hardest working momma’s I know. I love our mommy photographer play dates where we get to have fun practicing our skills with our favorite models, our children. Check out my interview below with this beautiful momma!
So this past month since we moved into our new home, my husband and I have been exploring our new hobby of antiquing and refurbishing old furniture. I love the idea of making something old new again. One day while out antiquing we decided to stop at a Goodwill to see if we could find an old table or dresser. Though we didn’t find any luck with furniture I did stumble on this beautiful vintage tweed blazer.
This week’s Behind the Lens Series I had the pleasure of interviewing one of Houston’s top wedding photographer and one of my childhood friends Jessica Pledger. We actually grew up a couple of streets from each other. She was an avid softball player as a young child, and eventually went on to get a scholarship to Harvard University to play softball there. After graduating with an economics degree, she came back to Houston, studies photography at Rice, and started her photography business in 2010. She is currently married to her high school sweetheart and residing in the Houston area. Check out her interview below. She is definitely one of my inspirations in Wedding photography.
I’m so excited to share with you the first of my Behind the Lens Series featuring Laura Vela of Laura Elise Loveography. I was inspired by these series because of her. As a new photographer, it’s been quite a journey learning the different aspects of photography and starting a business is an even bigger learning curve. I was so thankful when Laura reached out to me on Facebook and offered her help and guidance.
This past weekend my husband and I had the opportunity to attend a close friend’s birthday at the new Oporto in Midtown. The restaurant was amazing, great venue, reasonable prices, good food, and amazing white sangria. If you haven’t been there it, I would highly recommend it. Plus they have their own parking garage and valet which makes it so much more convenient with all the traffic and construction down there.
This past weekend my family and I took Jayden out to Froberg’s Farm in Alvin for a little pumpkin patch fun. It was inexpensive, local, and tons of fun for the kiddos. We lucked out because the weather was perfect when we went down there. We were able to go through the corn maze, walk around the farm, and take tons of pictures without sweating or getting over heated. I love this time of year because it is the best weather in Texas to be outside, and you get to layer it cute fall outfits! Below is my list of my top 5 Fall things to do with family in Houston.
