the “fun” session

If I had to describe this session in one word, it would be “FUN!” Mr. G was such a fun little guy, and we had a great time together playing games and exploring during our session. And I loved it that his parents were up for anything! They certainly contributed to the “fun factor” too!

We started our session off in a funky urban area of Dallas for plenty of color and texture.

And then we headed over to a nearby field for some family snuggles, tickles and more two-year-old exploration.

And if my calculations are correct, Mr. G should be a big brother very soon! What fun the newest little M is in for! 🙂

first birthdays

First birthdays are special. There’s just something about that age that gets me every time. The bridge between baby and toddler that exists for such a short period of time. When Miss. A and I spent some time together late this past spring, she was not quite one, but almost. I love how we captured the baby that was still in her but also caught glimpses of what was to come. She was not quite walking at our session, but I’d be willing to bet that her mamma now chases her and those sparkly blue eyes of hers *everywhere* she goes!

They told me that she was a good baby,

but I was still not prepared for how good she was. Four months is just not supposed to be this easy! 🙂

a mother’s love

A mother’s love is special. I’ve always known this…everyone does. But it wasn’t until I became a mother myself and held my first child in my arms for the first time that I truly understood what that meant. I began to love in a way that I never had before. I loved that tiny little person so completely, so differently. And I think becoming a mother helped me to love others in my life better too. I loved my husband in a deeper way now that we were officially a family, and I gained an appreciation for all that my own parents had done for me and why.

A mother’s love is special. I love it that we documented that for this beautiful mamma and her two little ones, and it makes me realize how badly I need a photo session of my own!

To be boy . . .

is to have energy. I think that’s a fairly universal fact. And I know in our family’s experience, to be boy is to have a. lot. of. energy. In a very wonderful, love-to-be-alive, contagious kind of way, but I’m really not sure if I could keep up with three. This family of all boys, however, makes it look like a piece of cake and oh so much fun. And their boys? Well, they not only have a healthy dose of that fun-to-be-around boy energy, but they are also caring, loving and sweet. Their love for each other this evening was simply palatable.

H’s you are raising some great boys, and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you this next go around…boy or maybe girl! 😉

Oh, how I loved . . .

this session! Be prepared for picture overload, because I really did love this one. It was just one of those nights where everything was right. We had beautiful weather, a beautiful sunset and a beautiful family that shared a very beautiful love. We started our time together in a fun urban spot in Dallas where we captured color, texture and a touch of funk.

Then we headed over to a very special place in Dallas for this young mom and dad. They were married just a stone’s throw from this field and are avid cyclists who can often be found cycling around the lake. It was obvious from the first moment that we arrived that it will inevitably become a special place for little Miss. E as well. She was so at home in the midst of the (often rough!) prairie grass. We got such a kick out of watching her run her hands over the grass and smile. She was definitely in her element and will surely grow to love being in nature as much as her parents!

And this beautiful mamma is also a *very* talented artist. You can see some of her amazing paintings here. I am so flattered that they chose me to capture their family on film. Ds, you are a beautiful family with beautiful love wherever you are!

A mastered craft

This is one motivated, talented (and flexible!) lady. She just so happens to be a good friend of mine who mentioned just a little over a year ago (yes, only a year) that she was starting to really enjoy yoga. Well, fast forward to today, and she is a certified yoga instructor who teaches at some of the most prestigious gyms across Dallas. She is incredibly talented, and when she told me that she needed some headshots and yoga pictures, I was so excited to help her document her accomplishments. We headed over to my favorite place in Dallas to watch the sunset and she practiced her craft while I practiced mine. Seriously can’t think of a better way to spend an evening with a friend, thanks A!
