Family Portraits Houston: 3 Generation Session…
This is one of my most treasured family photos. It’s old and faded, however it proudly hangs on our wall just at the bottom of the staircase (in perfect position to be saved God forbid the house ever catches on fire). It’s one of my most prized possessions for the simple fact that it’s a one-of-a-kind moment frozen forever in time.
This image represents more than just 4 people huddled together for a photograph. It represents love, heartache and even sacrifice. I’m the baby in the photo. The young, woman to my left is my mom (who was and still is quite the looker!). Holding me is my late grandmother, my mom’s mother affectionately known as GG. And to the far right is GG’s late step-mother Ethel.
This photograph documents who I am and where I came from. It also echoes the miracle of life (GG miscarried 3 babies before my mother was born and another 2 afterwards). Her own mother died at 17 giving birth to her. This photo is irreplaceable. And it only becomes more priceless to me as the years go by.
Generation sessions are so close to my heart for this reason: life is short and it’s precious. For those of us who have lost mothers, grandparents or great-grandparents, we’d give anything to go back in time and share just one short minute with them again.
For those of you lucky enough to have these special women in your life, now is the time to capture those relationships in photographs. Document the women in your life. Preserve your legacies. And I can help you do just that. Spend a day with me as I photograph you with the special women in your life. Whether it’s baking, brunching or taking a long stroll through a beautiful park, your session location options can be as unique as your imagination. But the best part is your love and relationships with each other will be forever captured in time, preserved for generations to relive each and every time you look at your photographs.
My generation sessions include 3 custom wood cover Heirloom albums handcrafted in Italy as well as a hair and make up artist. Call me today to schedule yours! 281.224.1542
