Rice University Extended Family Photos | Houston Portrait Photographer

October 17, 2018

This extended family photo shoot was a special one. It took place on Grandma Mavis’ birthday, as part of the family’s celebration. I had heard a lot about Mavis from her son and daughter-in-law of how much she adored their Fall Family photos last year and wanted a photo session as her birthday gift. Marvis would love to have some architecture on the background so we picked the historical campus of Rice University. I arrived a little early to scout around and just fell in love with those lovely buildings and charming details. The neutral exterior walls and grand structures blended perfectly with the beautiful trees and golden bokeh. I knew this session was going to be great!

Mavis, her husband, and their tribe (three children, two daughter-in-laws, and a lovely grandson) showed up with perfectly matched outfits. They were kind and easy going, full of energy and joy. Little Jordan did not mind being center of attention and delightfully shared his lovely smiles in every picture. As I captured their honest expression of love, I knew deeply inside my heart that the blessing of family did not just happen by accident. I imagined all those years that Mavis had invested into everyone in her family, praying for them and raising them with gentle love and a quiet spirit. She reminded me of the Proverbs 31 woman:

Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. (Proverbs 31:28-31)

I feel so honored to meet Mavis on her birthday and capture her family legacy in beautiful prints. I can’t wait to meet this lovely family again as they grow.
