Spoiler Alert!

The sweet family I was scheduled to shoot this past weekend had to cancel because their little one was sick (we hope you’re all better now, Miss. L!), which turned out to be a huge blessing, because I was able to fit in our family Christmas card shoot! Sorry to spoil it for those of you who get a card from us, but I couldn’t resist sharing just a little. We ventured to one of my favorite spots in Dallas to watch the sun set and came away with this…

I won’t share any others that found their way on our Christmas card, but here are some of the “rejects” that can hardly be called that…

And my favorite of the night — I was having a hard time getting my daughter to give me any eye contact at all, so I handed my camera to my husband and I tried to get some smiles out of her without the camera plastered to my face. I love knowing that she was smiling so big at me. I love you, sweet baby girl!

The S Family

Big brother J had a little bit of a hard time getting started at our early Saturday morning session. It was so sweet to see his family trying to help him cheer up. Dad even broke out the Michael Jackson dancing (and yes, I’m still laughing and only wish I had a video)!

But after a little break, some sugar, and of course the dancing by Dad, things started to look up.

And I must say, I do think we had a very strong finish, S Family! You guys did a great job. Can’t wait to show you all of your proofs!

The Busy B’s

If I had to sum up my session with the B Family in one (OK, two) pictures it would be this:

We spent a lot of time keeping up with busy Miss C! But despite her unquenchable curiosity and need to move, I think we just may have captured a “keeper…”

or two…

Bs, your girls are beautiful and your love is contagious! Can’t wait to show you the rest of your session, especially the bubble shots!

Meet the D’s

Meet the D Family…

And their adorable children…

Who have adorable personalities! Little Miss M wore her big girl ballet shoes to our session, and boy did she use them! I don’t think we asked her to dance once, but as you can see, she just couldn’t help herself. And little brother D, well, he just wanted to watch the cars and big trucks go by.  After all, what two-year-old little boy doesn’t?!?

Ds, you were awesome! Thanks for being willing to try something new — I hope you like your urban shots as much as I do!

The L Family

I had the pleasure of photographing my dear friends, the L Family, yesterday. The eldest L boy is one of my son’s favorite buddies, and I jokingly call the youngest L boy my little boyfriend, because he gives me the cutest and flirtiest looks every time I see him! I’m sure he flirts with everyone, but I must say if my heart wasn’t already taken by my own little guy, this sweet boy might steal it! Just take a look at him, can’t you just see the future heartbreaker…

But back to the whole family… You guys were so fun to be with and totally rocked your session. I’m having such a hard time narrowing your gallery down! Here’s your teaser — can’t wait to send you the whole set!

Newborn Love

I love being with families who have just welcomed new life. I love the serenity, the way the outside world just melts away and the love and wonder that abounds. I mean, look at this little doll — how could you not be totally smitten? N Family, I enjoyed spending time with you last weekend. Thanks for your willingness to try everything, even the gigantic flower on Baby M’s head.  I must say, I kinda like it!  Your growing family is precious!

  2. Linda Kalebic says: Love the baby M's pictures. (of course - my granddaughter) Adoreable and cute poses. Good job in capturing expressions. Hope there are some pictures without the flower headbands? ( b/c I want to see all of her) Great job. You should do well in this line of work. You have the personality to work with people. Good Luck.

The S Family

The S Family met me last Saturday at the Dallas Arboretum, and what troopers they were! We had an awesome session despite the oppresive heat and humidity. It was perhaps the muggiest day in Dallas history, but that didn’t stop the Ss! Baby O was an absolute dream. I don’t think we heard one unhappy sound from her — what a doll! And Big Girl A’s bubbly personality was so much fun! You guys did an awesome job. Here is your sneak peak — can’t wait to show you your full set of proofs!
