Over the course of the past year or so, I have been in contact with Beth DeLozier-Hayes of Tres Chic Designs here in Houston for a few events we’ve both been a part of. After getting to know each other over that time, I wanted to work with Beth to add to her personal portrait portfolio. She mentioned that she loves the husband dearly as well as our fair city (since that’s where Beth’s business is based!). The ironic thing is, they are both named Houston. She said she has a shirt that reads “It’s OK to love Houston”. Our plan was to get up early (for better light and milder temps) and shoot a few outdoor portraits in some iconic Houston locations and then head back to the studio to wrap up the shoot in the air conditioning.
Beth was a blast to work with and even though it was 90 degrees at 8:30 in the morning, we finished the shoot in an hour despited the thick, wet air. Hopefully Houston (both of them!) will like these as much as Beth and I do. A few of our favorites are posted here – enjoy.
