Danny and Jackie Gomez/Maternity Session/Botanical Center/San Antonio Expectant ParentsExpectant Parents Contemporary MaternityContemporary MaternityContemporary Maternity session

This amazing couple, Danny and Jackie Gomez, are so excited to be expecting their first child. I had the pleasure to photograph and document this amazing special time in their life together.  Jackie makes pregnancy look so glamorous. She just glows cradling her their precious little girl to be. I loved seeing how Danny just dotes after his wife and soon to be mother of his child. Danny recently expressed  " I can't wait to see everything that is so amazing about you in our little girl."  Francesca will be the name of their baby girl that is due early January.  What a perfect name for this little girl as the name Francesca means "french" and this couple were married in New Orleans at the beautiful Terrell House Bed and Breakfast.

Our maternity session started on a cloudy gloomy Sunday, but this couple were certainly glowing with love and excitement over the arrival of their little bundle of joy. Our session started on the porch and grounds of the San Antonio Landa Library then on to the San Antonio Botanical Gardens.  Jackie wore this opulent rich plum fitted gown to and Danny in these cool shades of gray.  These colors will definitely complement  the decor and colors of the nursery which are pink and gray.  Every detail has been planned to perfection waiting for this little girl's arrival. This baby will be loved.

Customized child session at the historic Pearl Brewery The Pearl child sessionThe Pearl child sessionThe Pearl at San antonio

       The Pearl Brewery/Custom Styled Fall Session/San Antonio 

San Antonio's Historic Pearl Brewery district was the backdrop to our outdoor child session today.  The industrial-chic motif along with the historic vintage original brewery dating back to 1881 seemed to set his style. And this boy has plenty of style. This custom styled fall session displayed the colors of fall with browns, rust, golds, and a pop of color green. These old massive boilers containing vegetables and lettuces kept with our color scheme complementing that perfect pop of color in his tie and sweater. This beautiful boy's relaxed style and perfect posing make him total hip and rocking this industrial styled session.

The magical world of a childhood imagination sf_502sf_502

The magical world of a young boy's imagination fighting the high seas and pirates with his best mates Lovey Bear and Tiger. Only a year ago this boy played in his own world scripting word for word stories from Thomas the Train, his mind resisting the acceptance of any sort of change in his world.  But now this sweet boy played in his imaginary world of pirates and ships with orders from the captain and a whole new world has just begun.  He has open some doors, a few waves have knocked him down, but I know that some day he will find his Treasure.

Capturing Great Expressions-No more cheesy smiles I am the mother a very beautiful boy who also is high functioning autistic. Autistic children for those of you that do not know, do not like to make eye contact or look when spoken to. My child as as infant expression was always serious, frowning, and distrusting. So I had to create ways to capture a smile, but I also learned to capture his true expressions with yelling "look at me" or "Smile". Ok, so you see where I am going with this? I will chase, tickle, talk Disney characters or do whatever makes your children happy to capture their true personalities and their best expressions. I even had Jellybeans thrown at me in fun and what an adorable image it made.Children's laughter
