Brittney Melton Photography | Houston Wedding Photography » Houston Texas Wedding Photography

I met up with Danielle & Joe this past weekend for their engagement session. Danielle told me that since they were getting married in Seattle this next Summer that she wanted a “Texas” feel to their photos. She wanted fields. And so…, I went scouting. Houston isn’t necessarily known for their sprawling landscapes. BUT I found some great locations and just told them they had to trust me… I mean, one of the locations was literally right next to an AutoZone ;)

I’m so glad they trusted me and I think some of those are my favorite ones from our session.

Danielle & Joe – congratulations! I’m pretty sure your wedding in Seattle will be amazing… I had fun! And… thanks for trusting me :)

Well, better late than never right ;)

I wanted to post these before Logan arrived and well – that didn’t happen… and here it is over 1 MONTH since he’s been with us and I’m just now posting them! BUT I’m learning this is kind of the life of a mom, and I’m adjusting… and I’m loving it :)

We love the gray furniture (thanks Gigi & Pops!) and all the special touches of his OWN quilt from Mema :)

We went with a light blue/gray wall (Lowe’s Valspar “Ghost Ship”). I wanted hints of sock monkey and also went with greens, blues, teals and grays for all the colors. I LOVE the way it turned out and thanks to my husband for helping me with my pinterest frame wall idea :) Even IF he wanted Logan’s rocker/glider living in our family room for now – maybe soon it’ll find it’s way back to the nursery.

Logan’s own special quilt from his Mema :)

Frame wall inspired by this Pinterest pin…

Letters were purchased at Hobby Lobby (ON SALE FOLKS!) and the paper was modge-podged on top

Print made by me (inspired by Pinterest)

Pinwheels were actually shower decorations my friend Dana made – I asked if I could steal them ;)

Logan’s embroidered pillow with monkey was a gift from Dana as well – she’s awesome :)

Logan’s first shoes AND his very own #babymelton onesie :)

Other frames contain leftover fabric from his quilt… Almost ALL the frames were purchased at Goodwill and spray painted :)

This crib quilt was made by my friend Courtney’s mom… this little boy has all kinds of special quilts!

I loved decorating this room for you little man! I know you love it ;)

 

  • Brooke - Can I ask where you got the furniture and what brand it is? It is beautiful Love the room!

  • Mallory - I am obsessed with the colors you used here for the frames! Do you happen to have the names of them please?

WOW – 1 Whole Month!?

How is it even possible that it’s gone by so quickly.

You are already very attentive (when you are content ;) ) but I can see a few changes in you the last few weeks…

 

- You’ve been making faces and “kissing” back at Momma and Daddy lately… you also laugh in your sleep which I love!
- You are still in Newborn clothing and diapers – but that’s ok because I would just love it if you stayed little forever ;)
- You LOVE your room (which everyone else will get to see here on Friday) and you instantly calm down when we go in there… I don’t know if it’s cause you know you are about to get your diaper changed or what – because you HATE to be dirty :)
- I love our sweet times in the morning, that’s when you are in the best mood – you probably get that from daddy and not me (ha)
- You haven’t QUITE taken to your baths just yet, each time you get better and better but I know you will love the water soon enough. But you do LOVE the sound of water. You also LOVE staring at the light… any light, lamp or outside!
- The swing is your BEST friend (and mommy’s best friend too- ha!)
- I love this crazy hair of yours…
- You also love to snuggle up and take a long nap at night, right in my arms, just before we go to bed… and I love that time too!

We can’t wait to see what this next month holds! Don’t grow up too quick ok :)

Happy 1 Month Baby Boy!!

And yes… he has his own #babymelton onesie courtesy of Dana Kanetzky :)

Being my first session back after having the little guy… I was super excited to shoot in a new place!

Ever since moving to Houston I’ve wanted to shoot at Rice University… that paired with an AWESOME couple and some amazing light made this session a new favorite! We also visited Sabine Bridge and The Heights old movie theater! Super fun and a great evening back behind the camera!

Thanks so much for a fun night Tiffany & Jason!

  • Sally Maxwell - Congratulations….

I wanted to get these posted BEFORE you turned a month old and I succeeded in that goal… (by 1 day!)

It’s truly amazing how fast these past few weeks have gone and that tomorrow you are 1 month old little boy! What am I gonna do! Time is moving too fast.

You already look so different. These were taken when you were 11 days old!

Little Monkey Butt :)

Love that I caught your smile :)

Little hands and little feet…

Daddy’s one request – to make your hair look cool :)

Squishy baby rolls :)

My sweet sweet boy… we love you so very much!

  • Vicki Melton - My sweet grandson. He is such a joy in our lives. Beautiful photos. They turned out so good. can’t wait until to see him again. Love you.

  • Vera T. - What a darling baby boy! Congratulations to you and Derik, and thanks so much for including my blanket in the pictures!
