I had a great time with Miss G at her senior photoshoot! Three outfits, for three totally different looks, and with her gorgeous colouring the weather was just perfect to catch the sun in her hair and light in her eyes. I adore simple serene black and white images, and her calm and laid back style made for some beautiful and slightly moody monochrome shots. We got a lot of variety from this senior photo session!
This local author contacted me for updated headshots months ago, and the weather has finally cooperated with us to go outdoors on location to do her photoshoot. We were looking for several different angles to get a variety to choose from for promotional images for her new book coming out this week. I like to use natural light and soft flattering lighting to bring out the beauty in my clients, and we found a few little pockets of nice light in her home garden.
Congratulations Barbara on the release of your latest work, and I wish you much success!

A Sunday in the park near sunset was the perfect time and place for an outdoor on location mini session for Miss J. We captured some unique portraits that show her personality, to celebrate her kindergarten graduation! Congratulations and I look forward to seeing you again for family portraits!

Looking for a family portrait session this summer? There are plenty of great locations around the Spring, TX and The Woodlands, TX where we can meet outdoors on location! Each Investment Session and Momento Session with me also includes a Pre Session Consultation, and we’ll go over the perfect place that’s convenient for you and that reflects you and your family! A lovely flower field? An urban location? How about near the park and canals?
A boy is truth with dirt on its face, beauty with a cut on its finger,
wisdom with bubble gun in its hair, and the hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.

This month I met the talented and inspirational Sondra Sneed, a local writer and author here in The Woodlands, Texas, for unique and personalized headshots. She inquired with me for images for her website, with a specific vision in mind. We met last weekend, on a gorgeous golden late afternoon at my favourite grassy knoll, and shot these beautiful images of her in the field. With the sun rays raining down behind her, she’s illuminated with beautiful light, a perfect ethereal glow that matches the aura of her inspired writing. You can read her story and follow her upcoming work at www.sondrasneed.com.

A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
~ George Bernard Shaw
Fall is a great time of year for outdoor on location photography, and just in time to get great family photographs for holiday cards! I met this family for a mini session in Spring, TX for a fun session, and we captured some great images of everyone together and portraits of the children – and a few couple portraits as well! This family was so energetic and brimming with life, it was a joy to be their photographer and watch them interact.
Do you have a little dancer in your family? Has someone recently graduated or won a major award and you want to commemorate the moment? A Momento Session with Shannon Stroubakis, premiere photographer for family portraits, high school senior photography and children’s portraiture, is a perfect way to get photographs of this time in your life that you won’t want to forget. When all you need is just a few images to remember this special occasion forever, a Momento Session is a fun way to get a forever keepsake.
Dancing is the poetry of the foot.

When it comes time to do your family portraits, it’s important to remember the details. Time passes quickly, and it’s easy to forget how tiny a child’s hand once was. Or the delicate sweep of eyelashes brushing across a cheek. Little toes grow into Daddy’s big shoes all too quickly. And one day you’ll cherish the simple but moving image of your mother holding your daughter’s hand, as a testament to a love that crosses generations.
Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation.

This month truly has been all about families!

This family was so much fun to meet for their fall mini session, and you can feel the love between them!

I had a wonderful outdoor photography session with Miss B recently, at my favourite location here in Spring, TX. Children’s portraiture is a lot of fun for me, especially with girls this age outside, because of the natural unplanned poses you get from them and the spontaneous smiles and laughter! I had a great time with her and her mama, and look forward to their family portraits for the holiday season in the fall!
A slow dance along the path of dreams.
Careless, a whisperling caught in the breeze.
A wee bit of a vintage touch.

in the seasons of this life, he understood himself a leaf upon a tree
until he stood still and silent in a great shadow
and understood that beyond the autumn
he would dwell forever within;
as the sap flows through the heart of every tree
