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!

Today at noon I officially started my summer!  I am so very thankful for the position I have held this school year at our local 4/5th grade campus.  I admit that it has been hard to juggle everything and I fell very behind on blogging for THP.  I am going to use the next few posts to feature some of my sessions from this winter and spring. I have enjoyed a few maternity sessions, a couple of Valentine’s Day sessions, and a few family sessions.  I am so excited to focus on my passion again.  I will be contacting my clients from this past year with a special offer.  And be watching for details on an upcoming special I will be offering.


Happy Summer,



Mr & Mrs To Be {Engagement Photography~Rockport, Texas area}

I had a co-worker come into my classroom one day to ask about my photography services, then she told me she was interested in me shooting her engagement pictures!  She had gotten engaged over the weekend-that was very exciting news.  I enjoyed working with this amazing couple and capturing the love they so obviously share.  I wish them all the best as they join their lives together this year!
