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!
Now…that’s better than some crazy political scandal, right?!?
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!!
I had the pleasure of re-visiting one of my precious newborn clients recently and was floored when I was met by a crawling little man. You are not supposed to be crawling yet, sweet boy! Look out, mom and dad, this one is going to be a mover and shaker for sure!
And to highlight how behind I am on my blogging, I haven’t posted his sweet newborn session yet or his beautiful mammas maternity photos. I just love looking back at all these and seeing the loving anticipation as they looked forward to becoming a family of three and the love, joy and awe that each parent feels during those first days after their baby’s debut. O’s, your love for each other and your sweet baby boy is palatable and certainly becomes you. Thank you for trusting me to capture these special milestones for you — what an honor.
And doesn’t this mamma have the greatest sense of color and style?!? If I ever redecorate, I want her help!
What a great evening we had at my first round of Holiday Mini-Sessions this year! Beautiful weather, two beautiful families, lots of giggles and fun — what more could we ask for?! Be watching your mailboxes — your CD and prints will be there soon!
My children *love* dressing up. Any day, all day, for any reason, so Halloween is naturally a fun-filled event at our house each year, and this year was certainly no exception! But it was a bitter-sweet year for mamma for sure, because this will most likely mark the last year that I’m able to have a big say in their costumes. Well, at least, *his* costumes. He’s six, you see, and six year olds would much rather be warewolfs than “big bad wolfs” (yes, that’s what he told his friends at school), so I’m pretty sure that this mamma’s Halloween, outfit coordinating, picture taking days might officially be over. Sniff, sniff. ;(
Dreamy light, a fun set of twins and an adorable baby…all in all, I’d say it was a great night. You’ve got three special kiddos, C Family! And those twins, they’ve got an extra special connection for sure. May you two continue to be the best of friends!
She is an unusual beauty both inside and out. And how much fun we had together while documenting her life as she closes one chapter and opens the next. Best of luck to you, T, as you begin your new adventure — may all your dreams come true!
The wait is finally over — Holiday Mini-Sessions* are just around the corner! They will be held the evening of Saturday, October 27th at a beautiful park in Highland Park. Each session will be 30 minutes long and will be geared towards getting those perfect holiday card pictures. And this year, they are all-inclusive! Yep, that’s right, no decisions to make after your session — I will simply mail you all 10-12 fully edited images from your session and a 5×7 print of each. We can then work together to design the perfect custom card just for you, or you are free to order your own from my new online store. As my Madeleiene loves to say, easy peasy! If you’d like more information, then drop me a line, and if you’re ready to snag one of the 4 slots (that’s right, only 4), then click here to make your reservation!
And no post would be complete without some eye candy! Here are just a few of my faves from my 2011 minis. Looking forward to capturing more beauty for you this year!
*Please note that mini-sessions are only open to immediate family members and are for families of four and smaller. Mini-sessions work best for children who are three and older. No dates or times are secured until the Session Fee is paid. The Session Fee includes Lauren’s time and talent, 10-12 fully edited images from the session and a 5×7 print of each. All additional products will be invoiced separately after your session.
Grandmothers are special. They just are. Their kisses, hugs and certainly their treats are extra special. And everyone knows there is a soft spot in every grandmother’s heart for her grandchildren. Nothing delights either of mine more than some time to be spoiled by either of their grandmas. So when the C Family wanted to include their boys’ Nai Nai in their session, well, I just knew it would be special. She clearly adores those boys, and what a wonderful thing to document for them. I know they will look back at these photos in years to come and be reminded of just how much she loves them, and that certainly is a special thing.
