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!

Did I really miss this?!?

Not too long ago, I posted some pictures from my session with these two adorable sisters and their baby brother HERE. I was preparing their CD this past week and came across the picture below. I had to check twice to make sure that I really had not edited it! What a perfect display of their sweet bond as sisters. Well, needless to say, it made it’s way onto their CD, and I loved it so much that it was included in my Top 10 of 2010 Contest. Don’t forget that voting ends tomorrow night at midnight. It’s so close right now; I, for one, can’t wait to see who wins!

Top 10 of 2010

What a fantastic year 2010 was for me! I am truly thankful to all of my wonderful clients who trusted me to capture what is special about each of you. And to officially show my gratitude, let’s finish the first month of 2011 off with a contest and some prizes! It was very hard to do, but I have picked the “Top Ten” images from 2010, and now you get to vote for your favorite. The image that receives the most votes by midnight on January 31, 2011 will receive an 11×14 wall portrait of the winning image and a complimentary session with Lauren to be used any time in 2011! And my favorites certainly weren’t limited to these ten. Don’t miss the slideshow at the end of this post showing all my favorites from throughout the year. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Now, for the fine print and voting…

~ Contest will run through Januay 31, 2010 at midnight CST.

~ No substitutions.
~ No purchase necessary to win.

Happy Voting!

Cards, cards, cards!

I absolutely LOVE Christmas cards. I love getting them in the mail, designing them, and I even love addressing mine and getting them out the door. And this year, it was even more exciting to open the mail and receive cards that I had put together for some of my friends. A special thanks to all of the families who helped me build my portfolio this fall — I feel so honored to have been a part of your lives. So here is a little slideshow with my cards from 2010 — just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share them all with you!

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Christmas Fun!

If you live in Dallas but haven’t yet made it downtown to see the Neiman Marcus Christmas decorations this year, go before it’s too late! We went this past weekend and had the best time. I swear for a minute I felt like I was in New York City. Well….maybe they’re not that good, but still so much fun and a whole lot closer! This year, in addition to the usual glitz and glamour, they have designed kid-sized space-themed tunnels that span about half a city block that children can climb through like a maze. Some serious Christmas fun — we could have stayed there all day! And just look at this patient, kind and oh so authentic Santa — fabulous!

Mr. Maturity

Meet Mr. A, perhaps the most mature two-and-a-half year old I’ve ever met. He carried on conversations with me like he was ten. What a delight this special little man was to be with!

And look at how much he adores his mom and dad. C Family, it was great to get to know you and help you capture the precious stage your family is in. Happy Thanksgiving!

Cars, Trains, Flowers and a . . .

singing billygoat named Esmerelda!? Yep, that’s what this session was made of. Oh, and the promise of Yogurt Land! We were pulling out all the stops to get Little B to smile, although I don’t think any of our efforts resulted in the priceless expression you will see below. No, we turned around and Little B was proudly teetering on the edge of a stone ledge — so glad mom let me snap a few frames before she helped him to safer ground — precious!

L’s, you guys rocked your session! I’ll be in touch with your full gallery soon!

There are Sisters . . .

and then there are sisters who are best friends. I don’t think I have to tell you which category these two little lovelies fall into. My own sister and I had an extra special bond like these two when we were little. May you always be best friends Miss. M & C!

And let’s not leave little brother out — he’s pretty cute and fun too!

I’m so glad we were able to fit a session in M Family. We got some great images of your precious little ones! Can’t wait to show you the rest!

Sweetness. . .

These cute little guys were so excited to give their mommy the flowers I brought along for our Saturday morning session. It was so sweet to see their excitement. They adore her, and for good reason — she’s a fantastic mom. I’m so glad to have been able to help you capture that T family!

And they are pretty crazy about each other (and dad too!). Oh, and do I even need to mention mom’s shoes!? Fabulous!
