Pearson for President

The Big Day is upon us. Don’t forget to vote! And just in case you are still looking for a candidate, I know a pretty cute one who would love your vote. His platform includes universal naps for everyone, pacifiers forever and lots of trips to the park. May the best baby win!

Who’s ready for a good surprise?! Not one of these crazy “October Surprises” this insane election cycle has been throwing our way, but a good and happy surprise? Well…I’m opening my schedule for some last minute mini-sessions this Sunday, November 6th at a beautiful natural location in Dallas. I have just a couple of slots left. Fill out THIS FORM to snag one for your family! All digital files and products will be delivered to you in plenty of time for Holiday cards and gifts!

Ballerina graces

Sugar and spice and everything nice; sunshine and rainbows and ribbons for hair bows; tea parties, ballerina graces and baby doll faces, and the cutest crooked little smile you ever did see … that’s what my sweet girl is made of. Happy National Daughters Day, sweet sunshine of mine!! I am so glad that God blessed me with you!!

the Beach

We’re nearing the end of the second week of school, and while everything is going beautifully, I do have to admit that I keep catching myself dreaming of being back at the beach. Anyone interested in starting a homeschooling co-op at the beach? I’ll teach science! 🙂

I mean, seriously, who couldn’t handle a little of this every day?!?

Little Toy Car

How much fun can a little toy car be? Well, pretty fun, if you ask sweet baby blue eyes…

And a few of my sweet assistant, who just adores his little “mini me” and almost always indulges his crazy mamma’s obsession with photography.

Ok, back to editing our family photos from 2012. Hoping to catch up sometime in the next decade!

Let it Snow!

We get ice just about every year, but it’s not often that we get the *good stuff.* So what do you do when you see fluffy white snowflakes dancing from the sky? You get your swimming goggles, yard tools, and have loads of fun, of course! 😉

my sweet boy

He is my firstborn. The child that made me a mother. The newborn that we fumbled over and the one that we have probably made more “mistakes” on than I care to admit. But we must be doing *something* right, because we couldn’t be prouder of his character and who he is becoming. We feel so fortunate to be his parents and firmly believe that God has given him a special set of characteristics that will one day be used mightily. He is my leader. My outgoing one, my encourager. My tenderhearted, passionate one who literally OVERFLOWS with joy. His sweet teacher this year calls him her “joy pill,” because his joy knows no bounds.

I never thought in a million years that the girly girl that I am would be a boy mom, and much less enjoy it, but my sweet Max has certainly changed my mind there, which is a good thing because we will be welcoming ANOTHER BOY to our family in July. We are a little shocked, as we all were convinced (and I mean go ahead and paint the nursery pink convinced) that we were having another girl, but super excited for all the new boy adventures that will be coming our way. We love you, Maxwell and are so proud of you. If this next little boy turns out half as sweet as you, we’ll be in pretty good shape! 😉

meant to be

So last year, this sweet family and I planned to have our session in the Arts District downtown, and it was just not meant to be. You might remember how we had to make a last minute detour due to some unscheduled events in our planned meeting spot. So this year, we were determined to make our original plan work, and after a reschedule (for yet another unplanned event!), we finally were able to make it happen. Our time together is always wonderful, but I’m so glad that we finally got our Arts District session. Some things are just simply worth the wait.

Miss. L is almost *exactly* one year older than my little girl, and it is such a delight to be with her and see what my sweet pea will be doing this time next year. And as you can see, Miss. L is not only a beautiful child (a given with such attractive parents!), but she has the most vibrant, fun personality. I’m so glad we let her loose to splash and roll in the water at the end of our session. I just love her jest for life!

  2. Amy Liscomb says: Hi Lauren. I came across these photos of the little girl in the water on Pinterest tonight. I was in love immediately. I love your style and was very excited to find out the shots were in Dallas. I live in the mid-cities and am always on the look out for new spots. I live closer to Fort Worth and generally head in that direction but you have inspired me to venture east more often. You are very talented. on 02.24.14 @ 8:38 pm

at home

Hanging out with this sweet family is always such a treat, and this day was certainly no exception! Their home and family are so welcoming, and I never want to leave when our time together is done. I could spend hours (and have!) chatting with this wonderful mamma, and how we never met in the *lawyer world* is beyond me. But one thing is certain, this is one lucky little girl to be surrounded by such beauty, love and warmth, and I’m sure she’ll grow up to be all that and so much more!

Remembering the Past While Looking Forward to the Future

You might remember that 2011 was not the easiest year for our little family. Yes, about this time last year, I was quite excited to say goodbye to 2011 and start a brand new year. A new year filled with new opportunities, new beginnings and new blessings. And while 2012 was much gentler and kinder to our family, as I stop to reflect back on what it was, I find that I’m most thankful not for the great blessings and “high moments” but for the hardships of the year before. For, you see, it was through those difficulties, perhaps because of them, that my perspective improved, was placed back where it belongs. I have always been a planner and a dreamer, but I have not always been the best at slowing down and cherishing my today, at counting my everyday blessings one at a time. So in 2012, I resolved to live more fully where God has placed me, to be mindful of and thankful for the divine blessings sprinkled throughout each everyday. And while I certainly didn’t do it perfectly, I am so thankful for my “new” perspective and can’t wait to discover what 2013 has in store for us! A belated Happy New Year to everyone — may 2013 be rich in everyday blessings for you! 🙂
