Let it Snow!

We get ice just about every year, but it’s not often that we get the *good stuff.* So what do you do when you see fluffy white snowflakes dancing from the sky? You get your swimming goggles, yard tools, and have loads of fun, of course! 😉

my sweet boy

He is my firstborn. The child that made me a mother. The newborn that we fumbled over and the one that we have probably made more “mistakes” on than I care to admit. But we must be doing *something* right, because we couldn’t be prouder of his character and who he is becoming. We feel so fortunate to be his parents and firmly believe that God has given him a special set of characteristics that will one day be used mightily. He is my leader. My outgoing one, my encourager. My tenderhearted, passionate one who literally OVERFLOWS with joy. His sweet teacher this year calls him her “joy pill,” because his joy knows no bounds.

I never thought in a million years that the girly girl that I am would be a boy mom, and much less enjoy it, but my sweet Max has certainly changed my mind there, which is a good thing because we will be welcoming ANOTHER BOY to our family in July. We are a little shocked, as we all were convinced (and I mean go ahead and paint the nursery pink convinced) that we were having another girl, but super excited for all the new boy adventures that will be coming our way. We love you, Maxwell and are so proud of you. If this next little boy turns out half as sweet as you, we’ll be in pretty good shape! 😉

meant to be

So last year, this sweet family and I planned to have our session in the Arts District downtown, and it was just not meant to be. You might remember how we had to make a last minute detour due to some unscheduled events in our planned meeting spot. So this year, we were determined to make our original plan work, and after a reschedule (for yet another unplanned event!), we finally were able to make it happen. Our time together is always wonderful, but I’m so glad that we finally got our Arts District session. Some things are just simply worth the wait.

Miss. L is almost *exactly* one year older than my little girl, and it is such a delight to be with her and see what my sweet pea will be doing this time next year. And as you can see, Miss. L is not only a beautiful child (a given with such attractive parents!), but she has the most vibrant, fun personality. I’m so glad we let her loose to splash and roll in the water at the end of our session. I just love her jest for life!

  2. Amy Liscomb says: Hi Lauren. I came across these photos of the little girl in the water on Pinterest tonight. I was in love immediately. I love your style and was very excited to find out the shots were in Dallas. I live in the mid-cities and am always on the look out for new spots. I live closer to Fort Worth and generally head in that direction but you have inspired me to venture east more often. You are very talented. on 02.24.14 @ 8:38 pm

These are days . . .

you’ll remember…isn’t that how the song goes? Every time I photograph seniors, the chorus runs through my head. Ah yes,

“These are days you’ll remember

Never before and never since, I promise
will the whole world be warm as this
and as you feel it, you’ll know it’s true
that you are blessed and lucky
it’s true, that you are touched by something
that will grow and bloom in you

These are days you’ll remember

When May is rushing over you with desire
to be part of the miracles you see in every hour
you’ll know it’s true, that you are blessed and lucky
it’s true, that you are touched by something
that will grow and bloom in you

These are the days
that you might fill with laughter
until you break”

May these lyrics ring true for you this year, Miss. K, as you close one chapter of your life and embark on another. You are a beautiful girl (with the most gorgeous piercing blue eyes), and it was so fun to spend time with you and get to know you! Enjoy these last days of High School — may they truly be days you remember filled with laughter, blessing and joy!

workshop mania, part 1

This past weekend, I attended Michele Anderson of Pinkle Toes Photography‘s 3-day workshop for photographers, and wow, what a weekend it was! It was an intensive, challenging, exhausting but wonderful three days. Going into the workshop, I was prepared to learn a ton. Michele’s talent as a photographer and business woman is evident to all who follow her. But what I wasn’t prepared for was how much fun I would have in the process and what amazing friendships I would form. My fellow attendees were such incredible women who I found I had so much in common with. For three days, we worked together, learned together, laughed together, and shared about ourselves and our dreams. Thank you, ladies, for being so real and so much fun!

At the workshop, we worked with lots of different models, and in an attempt to avoid bombarding you with too many images at once, I’m going to post my favorite shots of each model separately. Stay tuned for more, but first up, maternity…

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!
