the busy little bee

Miss. G was busy, busy, busy at our Mini Session this past weekend, as any inquisitive toddler would be! She was so excited to explore her new surroundings and had the cutest giggle as she had me chasing her all around the park. At one point, she paused and I captured that adorable doll-face of hers as she looked right at me. I smiled at her and said, “I got you sweet Miss. G,” to which she just burst out laughing. Oh, you gotta just love a sense of humor like that! 🙂

  1. Elizabeth Godyn says: Our Miss G sure was a busy girl at our shoot and when we left i said to my husband "if she got one picture from that shoot I will be amazed"! How wrong I was... you blew us away. We were just hoping for a decent Christmas photo and instead got a beautifully shot story of our family --sans Charlie our dog of course who wasn't havin it that day. I believe it was your warmth that set the tone for our shoot so thank you for making us feel welcomed and comfortable. We can't wait for you to photograph our newest family member arriving in January. Again,Thank you for your patience and professionalism. on 10.8.11 @ 11:36 pm

A beautiful album for a beautiful family.

I. love. albums. I love them not only because they are the best way to preserve family photographs and memories for generations to come, but also because each album I create is a reflection of you. From the cover carefully chosen to compliment your style, to each page custom designed to weave the photographs from your session into a story…the story of where you are as a family *right now.* And I love it that the albums I offer can be casual, funky, fancy, timeless…or all of the above.

This beautiful family chose one of my favorite covers to date — black and silver snake-skin with a silver accent strip. How fun is that! And would you even believe it if I told you that they didn’t think they were photogenic?!? Umm….what?!?

I’d say they win the prize for being one of the most photogenic families I’ve photographed to date, and their love for each other just radiated that day. They are so in love with their little family of three, and I’d have to agree that it looks pretty darn good on them!

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! 🙂

sweet baby snuggles

Hands down, *this* is what I miss the most about having a baby. Those sweet, tender moments between parent and child of complete dependence, total adoration that are so abundant those first few months of life. Those moments when your baby snuggles up and everything else melts away. You forget about everything you *should* be doing, because all is as it should be, and nothing. else. matters. Miss. R was certainly in a snuggly mood while I was with her at her session late this past Spring, and what sweet moments we captured to preserve these precious days for this family.

Our session was right before Father’s Day, and what a beautiful gift this baby’s daddy (and granddaddy) got on their special day. I just love it when my clients choose to preserve their family memories and stages in this way. I know they cherish it now, but I also know its sentimental value will only increase as their snuggly little baby grows into a busy toddler, playful child and beautiful young lady…all entirely too fast!

And luckily, Miss. R didn’t doze the *entire* time I was there. She did perk up, play and show us those beautiful blue eyes. I’ll be seeing sweet Miss. R in about a month at one of my October Mini Sessions, and I can’t wait to see all she is up to these days!

third time’s the charm?

I am convinced that whomever came up with the saying “the third time’s the charm” must have been referring to families with third children. I’ve photographed several families with third children lately, and without fail, each one of those “thirds” was the happiest, best-natured baby. Sweet Miss. L was certainly no exception, and her family was so excited to welcome her — remember the story of my arrival that day?

She was such a little doll. Makes me wonder if a “third” should be in our future too… 😉

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!

Mirror, mirror on the wall . . .

Who’s the fairest newborn of all?

Well…I’m not sure I could ever make that determination, but I know that Miss. P would certainly be in the running! Just look at those perfect little features.

Irish triplets?

I’m not even sure if there is such a term, but if there is, this sweet family would certainly be close to qualifying! They welcomed their set of boy/girl twins just slightly over a year after their second child was born. Yes, you did the math right, three babies under the age of 13 months…whew! But they didn’t focus on all the diapers, bottles, routines. They were so excited to be a family of six, and I was touched by their incredible story and strong faith. Their joy was real, and they were authentically thankful.

Being with this family on this day was such a great reminder to me. A reminder to not let the mundane details of daily life get in the way of being truly grateful for my blessings. Thank you, D family, for not only inviting me into your home but for sharing your story and hearts with me!

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! 😉
