Lerin Photography » inspired by {YOU}

Hello lovely visitors!  If you’re stopping by for the first time, let me introduce myself.  My name is Lerin and I’m a former elementary school teacher turned busy at-home mom to five adorable hooligans and one angel baby.  My husband Adam and I are nearing our 10th anniversary!  I love vanilla chai, swimming, wine, summer evenings and maxi dresses.  It’s very nice to meet you.  :)

I’m part of a local photography group where we get together for professional development and support!  We decided to begin a blog circle to get to know each other even better.  Our theme for this month’s blog circle  is SUMMER.  The following images just scream summer to me!

We celebrated the end of Baby’s First Year with a Birthday Session!


Here is another one of my maternity turned newborn turned six months turned FIRST BIRTHDAY clients!  I first “met” this sweet girl during her mama’s pregnancy, at a Christmas family portrait session.  I had the joy of photographing her at just a few days old, even getting kisses from her puppy.  I can’t believe she is one!

Our first birthday session ended the Baby’s First Year round of milestone portraits.  I met up with Karley at Woodcreek, to watch her sit, stand, crawl and smile all over the place.

Isn’t she a doll?  Cuteness runs in this family, that is for sure!

Thank you for celebrating your first year with me, darling girl!

First Birthday and Cake Smash at

First Birthday and Cake Smash at Katy Heritage Park


Kayden celebrated her first birthday with a cake smash portrait session at Katy Heritage Park!

This family is very dear to me.  I first met them when I photographed big sister Kensley for her First Birthday portraits, at the same spot!  Over the years, I have done portraits for this family and their beautiful children.  When Kayden needed an in-home newborn portrait session last year, I happily traveled to her west Houston home to make it happen!  We followed up with the Baby’s First Year plan at six months.  I can’t believe it is already time for her first birthday session… has it really been a year since I first saw her pretty face?!?

We finished off her first birthday portraits with a cake smash.  Kayden dived right in to that cake, as you can see!  Funniest cake smash ever!  Big sister Kensley wasn’t far behind… first, they were feeding each other, and once Kayden moved on, Kensley took her time enjoying what was left.  :)

Thank you so much for choosing me to document your family over the years!  It is truly a joy.

I spent a year teaching big sister Julia in Drama class, and it was truly a joy to photograph her beautiful family at Katy Heritage Park!  Julia is such a sweetheart, and a gorgeous child too.  Mama Mary found out just before this session that she is beginning a new pregnancy!  Since then, we’ve found out that baby number four will be a boy.  I can’t wait to do his newborn portraits in September.  We are already planning, of course!

Newborn Baby Boy is all grown up

BEFORE and AFTER: Newborn Portrait then and 3-year-old Portrait now.


The beauty of living in the Katy suburbs of Houston, with a small-town feel?  People usually stick around.

I love seeing my newborn clients again and again over the years.  This precious little boy is named Maximilian (Maxim for short) and he was a newborn client of mine back in December 2010.  I will never forget the beautiful light of his eyes!  At his newborn session, he looked like he would have light brown hair and blue eyes.  Now look at this big handsome boy… bright green eyes and blond hair!  :)

This whole family are some of my favorite Katy people.  I am so lucky to know and photograph such adorable kids.

Love you, Maxim!
