The Harkey Family | Family Photography in West U

When you move to a new city or even across the country, your home can be a really special place for family photos. Remembering your current phase of life, no matter how crazy, is important.  Especially with little kids, your seasons change so fast. What I love so much about lifestyle family sessions, it makes you stop for a few hours and document your life just the way it is. Your littles won’t be little forever. Don’t forget to slow remember long enough to embrace the season. The Harkey family moved to Houston not too long ago so choosing their family photography in West U at their home and at a neighborhood park made their session special for this season of life.

The Harkey Family in Gorgeous West U

Getting to know this sweet family at their home really made for a great day! The Houston weather held up for us and we soak up every ounce of sunshine. Emma, so bubbly and full of joy, loved showing me her gorgeous doll house in her beautiful purple room and all around their fun backyard.  While big sis was giving me the full tour, Carson followed along fueling my baby fever! We spent about half the time at their new home in West U then we went down the street to a gorgeous open lot full of beautiful trees. Thankfully, I carry confetti in my camera bag (because what’s life without a little party? am I right?!) which came in handy entertaining Emma and made for some fun photos of this cute family!

Megan and Shawn, I loved getting to spend time with y’all and your adorable kiddos.  I hope to see y’all soon!

XO,

Michelle
