workshop mania, part 1

This past weekend, I attended Michele Anderson of Pinkle Toes Photography‘s 3-day workshop for photographers, and wow, what a weekend it was! It was an intensive, challenging, exhausting but wonderful three days. Going into the workshop, I was prepared to learn a ton. Michele’s talent as a photographer and business woman is evident to all who follow her. But what I wasn’t prepared for was how much fun I would have in the process and what amazing friendships I would form. My fellow attendees were such incredible women who I found I had so much in common with. For three days, we worked together, learned together, laughed together, and shared about ourselves and our dreams. Thank you, ladies, for being so real and so much fun!

At the workshop, we worked with lots of different models, and in an attempt to avoid bombarding you with too many images at once, I’m going to post my favorite shots of each model separately. Stay tuned for more, but first up, maternity…

Family Life

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go from a family of three to a family of six in just a little over a year?!? Well, ask the Ds, and I bet they would tell you that it’s very busy, a bit hectic at times, but totally wonderful and very much worth it! Ds, I was so touched by your story and how God has blessed your family so richly in such a short time. Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture you just as you are right now. I love these pictures of your family life and hope they will keep these precious moments alive for you in the years to come!

And don’t worry Mom, the shots of just the babies we worked so hard for turned out great!

Spring is here!

I am so glad that Spring is here! Yes, since we’re in Texas, it means we are sweating already, but I’m so thankful for the warmer weather, beautiful green grass and blooming flowers everywhere! And I love how the H Family wore fun bright Spring colors for our session. You guys looked great! And I have to tell you that this first picture is perhaps one of my all time favorites. Oh how it makes my heart smile — you can just feel how much these sweet brothers love each other (and how smallest H does not want to be left out ;))!

urban family. natural family.

The D family wanted to mix things up a bit at our session on Saturday, so we visited my favorite urban area of Dallas and then ventured over to a beautiful field that has special meaning to their family. The Ds were married just around the corner from this field, and they love to cycle around the lake. These are also among my absolute favorite places to photograph, so I was happy to oblige. I LOVE all the variety in textures and colors we captured, and I can honestly say that I’m not sure which setting I prefer on you, Ds! But one thing is for certain — you are a beautiful, loving, connected family wherever you are!

new albums!

I am so excited to unveil the new album option I am adding to the 2011 Lauren Reynolds Photography product lineup. I picked up the one I designed for some of our family pictures just yesterday, and I have been itching to show it to you. I am so in love with it. The quality of the construction and thickness of the pages is unsurpassed, and the cover is heaven to touch. There are many cover materials to choose from — you don’t have to go with one as bold as the “red viper” that I chose. And that cameo on the front — it’s printed on metal, how cool is that?!

They are so sturdy that I didn’t mind a bit when my 4-year-old and 2-year-old wanted to sit down together to flip the pages!

pure angels

So I must admit that I was a wee bit nervous about my first set of newborn twins. Newborn sessions under the best of circumstances can take quite a bit of time and patience, and I really had no idea what to expect with two! And these two cuties did give us a run for our money at first. They were quite alert, not interested at all in sleeping for me. But as soon as we put them together, they were completely at ease. It was as if they were back where they belonged, together. What precious little angels.

A boot-scootin’ birthday

Miss. C is five, and boy did she and her friends have fun celebrating Texas style at the McKinney, Texas Storybook Ranch! There was bouncing, sliding, horseback riding, a pinata, delicious cake, and my personal favorite, the Pettin’ Zoo. Just be careful, though, if you are lucky enough to visit this particular Pettin’ Zoo, not to wear your camera bag around the goats. They can get slightly aggressive when they mistakenly take it for a feed sack!

Happy 5th birthday Miss. C! Thank you for trusting me to capture your special celebration!
