There are some things I like about Spring. Like the right temperatures for tomato growing and the occasional perfect day to sit outside for lunch. But my heart belongs to winter. I love the everything about winter and Christmastime and much, much cooler weather (and the occasional perfect day to sit outside for lunch when you live in Houston). 

Spring is a busy season for most photographers. It's wedding season and prime weather for getting outside for a photo shoot. I've definitely had my own plate full for several weeks now, and I can't wait to share my wonderful spring sessions –but first, winter.

Somehow, with all the merriness of the holiday season I missed sharing this total gem of a family session! We met on a rainy day over at Lonestar College. We weren't sure if the rain was going break long enough to get outside for pictures, but we were determined to make it work. Thankfully the clouds opened up just long enough to get outside and have some fun!

So this young lady knows the lyrics to Singing In The Rain. She sang them as she walked and danced down the sidewalk with her umbrella, and I was nearly in tears from trying not to giggle and shake my camera while I captured the moment. I smiled all through editing these pictures as I remembered the moment, and sat in awe that she knows all the lyrics to Singing In the Rain (I know I only know the first couple of lines!).

This amazing family, and longtime friends of my family, is actually preparing to begin a new chapter of their lives in a new home. I'm thrilled beyond belief for them, they deserve only the best in life. But oh how I'm going to miss these sessions. Oh how I'm going to miss them.
