Toys for Tots Mission Statement:

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located. In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign. Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.

Conroe Texas Senior Photospinimage

Amazing kids are often the result of dedicated parents. That is certainly the case with this extraordinary young man, Addison. Off to play baseball for Rice University, Addison is definitely the product of a strong supportive family led by two hardworking parents.


High School Senior Photos Conroe TXpinimage

For this special senior photo session, I wanted to go a little outside the batter’s box. Get it? Batter’s box? Okay, bad pun. Anyhow, it is fairly difficult to please a teenager these days. Finding settings, poses, and clothing that these edge-of-adults are comfortable in can be difficult. That is why for my ALB Photography Senior Photography sessions, I aim to please the teen. Yes, mom and dad have plenty of input. However, ultimately, if your senior isn’t “feelin’ it” the camera will capture it. As you see from this session, Addison was comfortable on his own terms resulting in some fantastic shots.

Amazing parents, Brian and Amy, have raised eight respectful, kind, warmhearted children through their twenty-two-year marriage. Addison, the “baby” of the clan, is a wonderful reflection of the kindness and caring instilled by mom, Amy. I know Addison is off to do great things with the full support of his parents and loving family. Congratulations, Addison!

The Woodlands Child Photographer ALB Photographypinimage


This kid session was so much fun!  Mom, Karla, contacted me weeks earlier to plan a special double photo session.  The first portion of the shoot was formal and styled for more classic portraits.  Those images will be revealed in an upcoming post-holiday post.  The second part, featured here, highlighted the kids’ favorite sports in a casual and fun way.  As you can see from the photos, the kids had a blast.  And, I even made a new friend!


Houston area child photographerpinimage

Sometimes you get to talking to someone and quickly begin to realize that you have a lot in common.  When Karla connected with me to book a session for daughter, Sophie, and son, Vincent, she and I discovered that we actually live on the same street.  Our kids know each other because they attend the same school, and yet, we had never met.  After hanging out through the sessions, laughing and being silly with the kids, we realized we have a lot in common and became fast friends.

The entire day was such a great experience.  Nothing is better than a day full of fun with new friends doing this awesome job.

Houston Engagement Photographer ALB Photography by Amberpinimage

Congratulations to these gorgeous newlyweds!

When Charles and Tegan contacted me about booking an engagement photo session that was unique and a bit “funky,” I knew we were going to get along.  If you follow the ALB Photography blog, you will have noticed by now that, for me, being different is a point of pride.  As you can see from these engagement portraits, when you are with extraordinary people, an extraordinary setting can be complementary.

Charles and Tegan were married in Mexico on October 2- the perfect destination wedding for this vibrant couple.  (Fun fact:  My husband and I were also married in Mexico!)
