A Very Personal Project {Full Time Ministry Family Photography~San Antonio, Texas area}

The Harris 5 have officially relocated to San Antonio.  To read a bit more about that, you can click here for my last post.   It has definitely been an adventure.  I am thankful I have a God that is faithful and dependable.  Since we knew change was coming I began thinking and praying about what direction I wanted to go with my photography business. I had an idea.  Adam and I have been in ministry (counting the time before we knew each other and before we were married) for over 20 years each.  The idea I have is to provide lasting memories for families in full time ministry at a very affordable rate.  Preserving special moments in time is so important and I want to make it possible for families who give so much of themselves to have this luxury.   If you or someone you know is in full-time ministry and lives in the San Antonio area, please contact me for more information at tharrisphoto@gmail.com. I would like to speak with you, get to know your story and capture memories.




Miss Renee~Your Beautiful Self Session {Teen/Young Adult Photography~Rockport, Texas area}

Another beautiful young lady I had the privilege to work with…..Renee was so much fun.   She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  It was a ton of fun photographing Renee doing her cheers too!


Miss Brooklin~Your Beautiful Self {Teen Photography~Rockport, Texas area}

I want my girls to fully accept themselves as God created them.  We live in a society that defines beauty almost entirely by a certain appearance expectation.  I truly believe beauty radiates from within and each person possess a personal beauty.  The true meaning of beauty:YOU!!! I had fun working with my own girls and today I am featuring Brooklin.



Happy 2015 {Rockport, Texas area Photographer}

It has been awhile since I last blogged and I was tired of seeing the “Summer Recap” title.  I am also very thankful that my blog site is actually allowing me to post so I am trying to make the most of it. I had a little project I worked on in the late fall that I will be featuring soon and I also had  a few December sessions. However I had to keep those under wraps until Christmas cards were sent out.  I had so much fun capturing the lovely families I worked with. I am posting a few of my favorites.

Here is the “B” Family.


The “T” Family


And look at these Little Darlings.

Thank you so much to ALL of my clients and for making 2014 so great!!!

Summer Recap {Family Photography~Rockport, Texas area}


Fall is well underway, but the summer is still on my mind.  Of course, temperatures here in South Texas are still summeresque.  I had a wonderful summer, lots of fun family time with a sprinkling of photo sessions.  Here are a few images from some wonderful families I had the privilege of working with.


The “S” Family

The "S" Family


The “R’ Family


And lastly, the “L” Family

I love to see the different stages that these families are in.  They were absolutely wonderful to work with.

As the days grow shorter, school is in full swing and November is just a few days away….it is the perfect season to update your family portraits.   Please contact me at 361-444-3404 or tharrisphoto@gmail.com.



RFHS Senior Alex {Senior Photography~Rockport, Texas area}

Graduation 2014 at Rockport Fulton High School has come and gone.  Alex was the guy winner for my free senior session and I had the opportunity to work with him during the whirlwind of the last few days of his high school career.  He is respectful and very easy going.  Our session started on one side of Rockport and took us all the way across the sleepy little beach town.  He didn’t seem to mind my chatter and directions and was great to work with.   I wish you all the best Alex as you set out on your next great adventure.

Enjoy my Q&A with Alex and some photos from his session.

Baby Bump Announcement {Maternity Photography~Rockport, Texas area}

I was beyond excited when I was entrusted with a little secret as I was asked to do a Pregnancy Announcement Session.  They shared their exciting news a couple of weeks ago, so now I can share too. This is the sweetest couple and I am so very happy for them.  I was so honored they asked me to capture this special time!  They are going to be great parents!
