I am so excited to share our new personal project with you! JD and I are active in the beer community, and we’ve recently taken on a project to help out our favorite nonprofit, Open the Taps. We’re traveling around Texas to photograph several of the brewers in our great state, with the hopes that our images will help beer lovers, legislators, and mildly interested parties better understand who it is that we’re fighting for. We’re making things personal!

This has been an incredible project so far, and we’ve only hit three breweries! We can’t wait to do more, and we’re lining up sessions in Dallas and Houston as we speak! But for now, I’ll share some of my favorites from our sessions with No Label, Ranger Creek, and Freetail!

You may remember our buddies Jennifer and Brian at No Label from their cheesy Christmas sweater session this past winter. We had another fun time with them and got to hang out with their dogs, too! Oh, and Jennifer just happens to be pregnant this time around! Congrats, Jen and Brian!

Next up, we headed out to San Antonio to photograph Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling. We took…so many photos. We just couldn’t stop! We had a great time with these guys, and I think they just might have the cutest kids in the brewing community. I have way too many to share, but these are my favorites!

We rounded out our San Antonio trip with a session at Freetail Brewing. How convenient, they just happened to be doing a fantastic bottle release that day. Score for us! It was great to meet Scott and the crew and get to spend some time at one of my very favorite brewpubs.

We’ve had such a great experience with this project so far, and we can’t wait to do more! Thank you to No Label, Ranger Creek, and Freetail for your hospitality and willingness to be a part of the fun!

I have a very special blog post to share with you today! Why so special? These particular clients happen to be family! Kim is JD’s beautiful step-sister, and we’re so excited to welcome Darren to the family! We had a fun evening spending time with these two and our delightful niece Gracie (who you might remember as a teeny tiny baby…she is not so teeny anymore!). We hope you enjoy our fun family engagement session!

By now, I’m sure you know how very dear Lauren and Chase are to us. They’ve been one of our favorite couples to work with, and we’ve been so lucky to have several opportunities to be a part of the special moments in their family. We are absolutely overjoyed to be able to share this extra-special time as they welcome their sweet baby, Alyssa Kate. We had such a great time getting to know her, and we know Lauren and Chase are enjoying their new roles as mom and dad. Congratulations, Lauren and Chase!

It was so great to meet baby Wyatt and get to spend time with the Blackwells again! You may remember them from Ryder’s first birthday party. Now Ryder is a great big brother to Wyatt, their newest edition! We had so much fun getting to know this sweet boy…and we had a little fun with a Superman cape, too! Check out some of our favorites from little Wyatt’s session!

Lauren and Chase are some of our very favorite clients, and we are so happy that they are now expectant parents! We always have a great time with these two (and their support team of Lauren’s mom and sister Kathy and Shannon!), and this session was no exception! We returned to Mercer Arboretum with the hope that we’d be able to capture some of the awesome light we got at Lauren’s bridal session, and the park delivered once again! We hope you enjoy these photos of the gorgeously pregnant Lauren and Chase! Stay tuned for photos of their little one. :)

I am so excited to share this family session with you! Matt is the pastor at our church here in Katy, and when he asked us to take photos of his family, we were overjoyed! And then we decided to go and make things even better by doing the session at one of the coolest places in Katy, No Label Brewing Company (good beer from good people!). We had a great evening and got some really fun photos of Matt, Lisa, and their daughter Ava. I hope you enjoy them, too!
