sunset storytelling session on padre island | corpus christi photographer


Oh what can I say about Jennifer and her sweet family? I drove around for hours the week before, trying to find the perfect grassy area for their session. Jennifer is a talented wedding photographer and I had met her and her boys previously when we got together to do a styled shoot! Her boys are so full of love and sweetness, and I wanted a fun spot that matched their personalities. Her oldest babe, DJ, pretended to be a dinosaur as he made his way through the tall grass, while her baby Zeke held close to his momma! Jennier and her husband danced in the hills of grass and held each other close. There were so many laughs, snuggly kisses, and emotive moments of love. I just adore my families and how let their personalities shine through as we spend time together!

i am in tears. this is the greatest gift anyone has ever given me and i can’t thank you enough. i can hear every single dinosaur noise that dj made during the session and i can feel zeke’s little fingers gripping my arm while we were spinning and laughing in that field. these photos have made me fall more in love with my husband and with motherhood and i will be forever grateful to you. you have a talent that is unmatched and i hope you keep doing this forever. i loveeeee these images so much and i can’t wait to decorate our home with them! you froze time for us. i adoreeeee you! thank you so much.
