kids were here… houston tx child photographer

Welcome to the first installment of Kids Were Here.  We are a group of passionate photographers who are setting out to document details of evidence that Kids Were Here. It is a fabulous idea introduced by the very talented and creative Ketti Photography.

I am beyond thrilled and honored to be a part of this project, i am one of those people who starts these things and sees what lies ahead…i see the tears-in-my-eyes-so-happy-i-not-only-remember-but-can-see-it kinda person.  You see my life, my days, my moments are filled with glitter and shades of pink, toenail polish, hairbrushes, barbies, princess anything and just simply…filled with GIRLS…while years ago i never in a million years would have told you i would hope to have two girls, 18 months apart, at that, now, i couldn’t have my life any other way.  my life is so perfectly perfect for me and i am forever grateful God would chose it for me.

and as my friend jude says its best…

“in the the moment is is easy to get frustrated with all the mess and clutter that results from living with children. this set reminds me how quickly it will all pass. one day the toys will be in totes no longer played with. i will miss this. i’m reminded to slow down. to not stress about it. my happiness is not dependant upon everything put back into place and a neat and tidy home. 

one day we will have a wonderful reminder. evidence left behind written upon our hearts and minds of our children. photographs that will bring us back to this very day, when our kids were here.” -jude wood

Bubble Blower + Glitter Thrower + Magic Maker

Hey yall!  I'm, Shalonda, the eyes behind the camera of chubby cheek photography. I am a nationally published child photographer, based out of Houston Texas, where I am drowning in glitter + princess dresses with my two daughters, also known as the cheeks girls, and the love of my life, daddy cheeks.  I am inspired by REAL life + the magic of childhood and I truly believe that the in between moments mean the most... even when that means stepping on a Barbie shoe before I have had my morning coffee!
