To Have & To Note is a Houston based website aimed to showcase and support our beautiful city and its' people as we see them.  



A Brief History

To Have & To Note was founded in 2016 after discovering our love for beautiful imagery and the process behind it. This website was initially started as a love letter to our home - Houston, TX, and our residents. Follow us to The Heights, River Oaks, Midtown, EaDo, Northside, and every other pocket in our city. We hope you enjoy the ride!

Hi there, I'm Bree. Lover of photography, all things Houston, poetic art and fashion, and my four legged child, Paisley. This site was born out of my overwhelming love for this city, a need to express myself, and a desire to share without filter or rules. Welcome to this celebration of community, love, food, fashion, travel, and photography!

Managing Editor

Hello, my name is Melinda a.k.a. @nomstopmel! I'm 27, still learning how to be a lady, juggle adult responsibilities, and all while answering the call of las calles! (sorry ma). You all are here to bear witness to all the things I love best, our phenomenal friendship - we're super biased though, some amazing food, our travels, and sometimes my irrational amount of shoes.
