Children are such a gift, especially when they are as pleasant and well-mannered as Miss Chloe. This is our third time to photograph Chloe and we think she just gets cuter and more adorable! Although her family has moved out of state, they came to visit Grandma and Grandma wanted updated portraits – who could blame her with such a sweet granddaughter!
Kids are always high energy, and Chloe didn’t disappoint in this area either. She had lots of dancing tricks to share with us and she simply made me laugh with her as she twirled and pretended to be a ballerina.
Yes, this post is a little late (although we did photograph Chloe after Christmas), but we just wanted to share some of our favorites with you. Chloe we hope you always keep smiling and others will definitely smile with you!
On a nearly perfect day, we recently photographed Derek, a current senior from Langham Creek High School. He brought several props with him, but one that we found very meaningful was an antique Lacrosse stick that used to be his uncles, but was given to him when he showed an interest in playing the sport. Derek also likes mixed martial arts and hanging out with friends on his longboard.
Derek feels right at home on his longboard and skateboard. While we only photographed him with his longboard, he also enjoys performing tricks and “riding the rails” in his spare time. Derek describes himself as “shy”, but with his unique sense of humor and self-confidence, we think Derek is quite the chameleon and can easily make everyone laugh and feel at ease. He listens to a variety of music genres, including Rock, Pop Punk and Indie. Although Derek’s dream job would be to become a Jedi, he realistically hopes to attend The University of Texas majoring in Computer Science. This seems the like a perfect fit for him as he loves math and computers.
We certainly wish Derek all the best and hope he proudly wears burnt orange and continues his belief that everything is possible. Congratulations on your admittance to UT!
We congratulate Rhanda as she graduated from Sam Houston State University on December 13, 2013. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree with a major in Early Childhood Development and Education and can’t wait to begin teaching little ones to read! Some of Rhanda’s favorite books as a child include, “Where the Wild Things Are”, “The Rainbow Fish”, and “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” and she hopes to create great memories for other young children.
Rhanda’s current plans include finding a full-time job teaching and planning her future wedding for November 2014. She has dreams of one day opening a daycare and maybe getting her Master’s Degree.
We wish Rhanda all the best and hope she achieves her dreams!
Just when you think you might know Caitlyn, she surprises you again. She is outgoing, loves her family, has a soft spot for Nicholas Sparks’ books and her favorite color is bright pink. What you might not also believe is how competitive she is and varied is her love for sports. Caitlyn plays Volleyball for the varsity team at Langham and has also played competitively for the Texas Tornadoes. In addition to volleyball, Caitlyn loves watching LSU Football and proudly cheers on the Miami Heat basketball team. She can easily provide you with her favorite teams’ players and their positions.
Caitlyn’s love for music is just as varied… she listens to both Rap and Country. For her photo shoot, Caitlyn was able to take advantage of the beautiful fall color, albeit it short lived that we have in Houston. We think these colors truly complemented her skin tones, but her spirit is as fresh as the spring air. Caitlyn hopes to attend Texas State or Texas A&M and specialize in nursing. Her dream job would be working with the mentally challenged, possibly a mental health nurse.
We think Caitlyn is beautiful, super sweet and extremely diverse and whichever college she chooses will be lucky to have her on their campus!
This has been one of “those years” for me. I really wasn’t “in the mood” to decorate and celebrate the holidays. In fact, for the first time ever I didn’t decorate for Halloween or Thanksgiving. Our family didn’t carve a single pumpkin and the kids (now teenagers) preferred to play video games and socialize, rather than help pull out the decorations from the attic and get to work (ok, our eldest child is excused because of college).
Some of you may understand this “bah hum-bug” behavior. I just really didn’t “feel the spirit” until my phone rang from a previous client asking if I could possibly squeeze in time to photograph her family for a portrait in their home. Sheila was super excited that she and a friend had decorated her home for the holidays. Her excitement transcended through the phone and it just so happened that a photo shoot that was scheduled outside the next day couldn’t take place due to weather, so I offered Sheila and her family this time. Sheila was thrilled and we made it happen in between her son’s band parade and afternoon social time with his friends.
I’m writing this because Sheila really doesn’t know how much she inspired me to “get my groove on” again. I believe that God places people in our lives for many reasons and always at “just the right time”. The Hieber family had a request and I could professionally create and fulfill their wish for a beautiful family portrait; but more than that they inspired me. Their home, so beautifully decorated encouraged me to remember why it’s important to celebrate and how much happier our home can feel when we decorate and display some of our favorite items that only come out of storage annually.
This year it will be two years since I lost a super special person in my life and I was very happy to unwrap and display some of her holiday items with our favorites. Last year I just couldn’t open any of my mom’s items, but this year it seems to be exactly what I needed. Of course I still miss my mother daily, but I am happy that I took the time to mix some of her holiday treasures with ours and that I was able to convince my family to help me decorate so we could really enjoy lighting the fireplace and looking at the twinkling lights on the tree for a few weeks.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah and Very Happy New Year!
We met Victoria a few years ago when she accompanied her sister on a quick outdoor photo shoot celebrating her sister’s graduation from college. Fast forward to the present and its Victoria’s turn to be a model for a day and celebrate her high school graduation!
Victoria’s home school is Langham Creek High School, but she is graduating a semester early from another district high school, Windfern. She plans to attend Texas State located in San Marcos and major in Business Management. One of her life dreams is to own her own business just like her dad.
At first glance you might think Victoria is a “girly girl”, but to our surprise she also likes to hunt. She enjoys hunting with her entire family and has been honing her skills on her bow this season. Although she hasn’t caught anything yet this year, she is still excited to spend time with her family, sharing in an activity that they all love.
We wish this 100% country girl all the best as she works to make her dreams come true.
Kylee and her mom attended our annual Senior Saturday open house held every year at the beginning of August. They were excited to see that Nounou Photography offered more than just prints and couldn’t wait to have Kylee’s photo shoot. Kylee’s beautiful blue eyes are the first thing you notice about her, but then she wins you over with her outstanding personality! As a Bailadora for the Langham Creek HS dance team, she is always showing outgoing personality, her smile and love for dance.
Not only beautiful, but smart too is another way to describe Kylee. She hopes to attend college at Texas A&M in College Station majoring in small animal veterinary medicine. Her dream job is be a veterinarian and possibly own her own practice.
The future is certainly looking bright for Kylee and we wish her all the best!
