Ortiz Family | Family Portrait

I had the pleasure of being with the Ortiz family on my trip to Houston, Texas in December. It was such a blast to see them again. I had actually previously done their family pictures two years ago. It's crazy to see how much their kids had grown! I almost didn't recognize them!! Their previous portrait is here if you want to see it. :)

So I was very excited whenever Beth contacted me back in October, asking if they could schedule a portrait. It happened perfectly that we could do it when I was there--so glad that we were able to arrange that! This family is fun to be around. They laugh a lot and you can really tell they have fun together. I hope that people leave my family, seeing love, laughter and kindness as well. :)

The venue for our pictures was Rice University. Such an incredible university with so many archways, beautiful brick buildings and other things that make photographer's giddy! I know I was very excited shooting this family there.

Anyways, here's the photos!
