Butch is my cousin, a fellow artist from the legendary (and rather tall) Houston Klotz family. On Halloween, he’s marrying Kimberlyn, which makes me very happy for both of them! Because I wouldn’t have it any other way, my wedding gift to them was engagement portraits.

We started out with Glenwood Cemetery at sunrise, headed over to the iconic Sabine Street Bridge, and rounded it out at Watonga Park.

My how time flies and precious families grow. I photographed this sweet couple many years ago shortly after they were married and look at them now! A mother and a father looking proudly on their two sweet babies. Son Noah with the GQ look down pat, but working hard behind the camera to entertain his sister. Daughter Evelyn full of inquisitive adventure, holding tight to her Lovey and inspecting each item in my treasure-box-of-distractions… and *yay*, there’s another baby joining the family next year!!! For now all we see of that one is the precious little baby bump.

As per usual, these kiddos had better things to do on a beautiful day in the trees than look at Kasey and smile, but with the help of intern Shea and light-guy Connor we got some beautiful portraits. Mommy looked absolutely stunning in her sweater dress and pearls, and Daddy quite classically handsome.

I wasn’t kidding. I have a treasure box. Can you guess what kinds of things are in there? fa15_turman-1027Pin itfa15_turman-1035Pin it


Life can be just a bit bonkers when you’re pregnant with twins on modified bedrest, but Tania wanted some portraits of this pregnancy! We were able to make that happen and keep her health top priority by simply bringing the studio to her home, taking our time, and giving her plenty of breaks as needed.

I packed up my gowns, lighting, backdrop, cameras, and reflectors and made my way out to Katy for our session. We were able to move a few pieces of furniture around and shoot our session in the living room (with a quick field trip to the backyard to feature their tropical landscape). Tania’s husband Ryan and daughter Maia joined in the fun. Everyone is so excited to welcome these two precious girls into the family! I can’t wait until it’s newborn portrait time.

Ryan is a friend from high school, and I first met Tania about five years ago when I photographed the wedding. It was wonderful to see them again.

I did several backlit silhouette portraits and they turned out beautifully. Tania looks like a total goddess : )

Tech Talk: This is a one-light setup, with Nikon speedlite & PLM on a stand, which talked to my D700 via Pocket Wizards. I also used a large Larson silver reflector. Hair & Makeup by the fabulous Andrea Simmons of Face Forward.
