Jacob & Heidi, you guys are such a beautiful picture of true love! Thank you for letting me be a witness to that on your special day & may God bless your marriage for many years to come!

Heidi's Bridal Session https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/6/heidis-bridal-session We had so much fun at this bridal session! Heidi is an absolute joy to be around and her big heart shines so bright! Her mom and wedding coordinator was there with us and we enjoyed getting to capture these beautiful memories together. Shout out to Michelle for being such a rockstar and helping this day (as well as wedding day) go by so smoothly. We were at the beautiful Mercer Arboretum and Botanical Gardens and it was stunning. It was SO HARD keeping these little beauties under wraps until wedding day! I always get so excited to share! Heidi was the most beautiful bride and I can't wait to share more about their wedding day! Stay tuned!

Amanda Dove 2018 Senior https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/4/amanda-dove-2018-senior Happy Graduation to Miss Amanda - 2018 senior from Deer Park High School! This was another super fun downtown session and we had a blast! She is an aspiring photographer herself and brought tons of great ideas to the table! She even had her grandfathers antique camera with her! It was so cool to get to see one up close! This girl has tons of heart and spunk and I can't wait to see what the next chapter of her life looks like! Congrats Amanda!

Dalan 2018 Senior https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/4/dalan-2018-senior A big congrats to Dalan - Senior at The Woodlands High School! We met up at Town Green Park in The Woodlands and was surprised to see they were setting up for an Ironman Race. We made the best of all of the madness and had a great time! He and his awesome mom were such good sports about all the craziness and we got some great images! Dalan has such a kind heart and was so sweet to his momma during our session. I love seeing boys who still love on their moms as teenagers since I have 3 little boys of my own! Congrats Dalan! I wish you the best on your new journey in life!

Melanie Morales 2018 Senior https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/4/melanie-morales-2018-senior Melanie and I met a while back when her mom reached out through our neighborhood app about some photography questions. Melanie is a photographer herself and I was so excited to get to talk to them since she has a love for photography just like I do! I don't know that I was that much help since the girl has a good eye all by herself. I've seen some of her beautiful images!

I ended up doing her sister's senior photos last year and this year was Melanie's time to shine!

We met up at Bell Park in downtown Houston - a little hidden gem that Melanie told me about. I was so excited to get to see her and her mom again and I even got to meet the boyfriend. We snuck in a few shots of them together as well!

Congrats Melanie! I can't wait to see where your photography love will take you!

Anthony 2018 Senior https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/4/anthony-2018-senior Happy graduation to this Goose Creek Memorial teen! Anthony has had some great accomplishments during his high school career. He was MVP of the football team this year and silver slugger last year!

We had a beautiful session in downtown Houston with many fun stops along the way. We hit some crazy traffic on the way there, but we made it! I loved getting to know him and his beautiful momma. They had such a fun dynamic and I was so happy to be a part of such a fun day with them. Enjoy your new chapter Anthony! 

Our first stop was The Black Labrador. Its one of my favorite spots because it is so versatile!

This super fun blue door on the side is surrounded by ivy walls and there is even a life size chess/checkers board around the corner!

The old fashioned red telephone booth out front is another reason this is such a great place to start. So many options and such fun scenery!

 

This was at the biscuit color wall in Houston. I absolutely LOVE this location!

Its a fun little hidden away treasure that makes for a beautiful background for pictures!

 

We were determined to get some fun photos near Rice University. So we literally parked on the side of the road in front of Rice lol! It was a fun adventure to get these next few shots and Anthony and his mom were such troopers! 

 

We couldn't finish our session without some great Houston skyline shots.

The sun was just setting and the buildings in the background were gorgeous.

Amanda's Graduation Session https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/4/amandas-graduation-session This one was close to my heart. I love this girl to pieces! She has such a big heart and love for Jesus that is to be admired. We were at a weekend away at a women's conference for church and we snuck away for a little bit to get to capture these images in honor of her graduation. Amanda is graduating from Arlington Baptist University with a degree in Education. Congrats Amanda!

Easter Minis! https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/3/easter-minis This ended up being more of a last minute shoot. I try to plan, but apparently that isn't an area of strength for me lol! We had a good time and captured some beautiful moments. Photographing kids is one of the most beautiful and honest things you can do in life. They are so free and so real and they don't care who is around or the fact that their parents paid for a time slot to take photos. haha! Kids are always themselves, and getting to capture them being themselves is truly entertaining!

Amanda's Birth Session https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/3/amandas-birth-session Welcome baby Camryn! This was truly one of the most amazing things I have ever been a part of. It was so beautiful to get to capture the birth of sweet Camryn. Amanda went into labor at around 10:30pm on Sunday night, and by Monday evening, little Miss Camryn was born. I loved getting to be a part of this experience and watching the love of this sweet family grow. This little girl is already loved by so many!

Amandas Maternity Session https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2018/2/amandas-maternity-session  

This was absolutely one of my favorite sessions! Amanda and I have been friends since middle school and it was such a honor to get to capture these sweet memories of her growing family. We started out at McGovern Centennial Gardens in Hermann Park and ended up on Allen Pkwy for some beautiful sunset shots. I can't wait to hold this sweet little bundle!

2017 Christmas Minis! https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2017/12/2017-christmas-minis This year's Christmas set was probably my favorite! I was lucky enough to get ahold of someone that let me borrow their beautiful red truck and I of course had help from the amazing Amanda Tarver staging the set. I'm lucky enough to call her neighbor and friend. She has an eye for this kind of stuff and always seems to make things mesh together in ways that I can't image.

Another shout out to my fabulous hubby and family for holding down the fort while I spent several days doing these sessions - and of course to Jenn Malone for being my wing man... or should I say woman lol! She has been such a huge help during my mini sessions and I don't know what I would do without her. Thank you all for making these little beauties possible! I love you all!!

Megan's Senior Session https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2017/5/megans-senior-session I had such a great time getting to take Megan's senior pictures this past weekend! Her mom and sister came along with us as we traveled to a few different locations in downtown Houston and it was gorgeous. I hadn't had the chance to shoot there before, so it was a fun adventure for everyone! Congrats Megan!

Marissa's Bridals https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2016/12/marissas-bridals Shooting Marissa's bridal portraits was such a blast for me! She invited her bridesmaids along and we had a fun girl day taking photos! We were at the beautiful Mercer Arboretum & Botanic Gardens and it turned out great. We were crossing our fingers and saying some extra last-minute prayers for the rain to hold out... and IT DID! We had a nice overcast day in the beautiful gardens. We giggled and posed, and even had a mock bouquet toss! Marissa was absolutely stunning in her gown and it was so hard to keep these beauties a secret until after the "I do's!" Congrats Marissa & Lonnie! I can't wait to share more from your big day!

Savannah & Jimmie 2017 Seniors https://www.ashleycrawfordphotos.com/blog/2016/10/savannah-jimmie-2017-seniors We had such a great time with this session! I had never been to Mercer Gardens before, but it was absolutely beautiful! I got to "double dip" and do senior portraits for both Savannah AND Jimmie at the same time - another 1st for me! They were a blast to work with and we got to grab a few cute couple shots as well. These two have been together since the 8th grade, so it was fun getting to capture a few of their moments together as well. Congrats Savannah & Jimmie! Enjoy your senior year!
