So excited

When I showed up today to photograph this family’s newest addition, the middle P girl ran out on the front porch before I hardly had my car door open and yelled “Miss. Lauren, Miss. Lauren, the baby is *out* of my mommy’s tummy!” She was so very excited and wanted to be the first to let me know. Miss. G, I’m super excited too and am so happy that your baby is so loved.

there is nothing sweeter . . .

…than a sleeping baby, especially when she’s your own.

Three times a week, we have to leave to go pick up Maxwell right in the middle of Madeleine’s nap. This is the scene as I walk into her room to wake her up from her sweet sleep…peace, serenity, all is right with the world. And the amazing thing is that every time I rudely awaken her to go get her brother, she is so excited to see him that she happily complies. “Ok, Mommy, let’s go get Maxwell, I feel so much better,” is what she sweetly sings to me. You are a such trooper sweet baby girl, and I feel so very thankful that God graced our family with you! You are a true treasure to me.

This little guy was so stinkin fun! A tad unsure of sitting in the suitcases at first (can’t say that I blame him, though), but boy did he love playing peek-a-boo. He was so excited about the little game we had going, and he was up and down so much, that he completely tired his little legs out! When it got to the point that he was just poking his head over the top of the tub, mama came to his rescue. May you always find life so amusing sweet little man…

And if you want to see some behind the scenes pics of me taking some of these shots, jump on over to my friend Amy’s blog.

workshop mania, part 2

Meet Miss. A., six and a half and full of fun and energy. We played pretend, explored and just had a lot of fun together. And by the end of our time, she was telling me what we should try next! I absolutely love photographing children this age. They are old enough to follow some instruction but still so childlike and innocent. I had a fantastic time hanging out with you Miss. A. Wish we lived closer so we could do it again!

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…

Family Life

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go from a family of three to a family of six in just a little over a year?!? Well, ask the Ds, and I bet they would tell you that it’s very busy, a bit hectic at times, but totally wonderful and very much worth it! Ds, I was so touched by your story and how God has blessed your family so richly in such a short time. Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture you just as you are right now. I love these pictures of your family life and hope they will keep these precious moments alive for you in the years to come!

And don’t worry Mom, the shots of just the babies we worked so hard for turned out great!

Spring is here!

I am so glad that Spring is here! Yes, since we’re in Texas, it means we are sweating already, but I’m so thankful for the warmer weather, beautiful green grass and blooming flowers everywhere! And I love how the H Family wore fun bright Spring colors for our session. You guys looked great! And I have to tell you that this first picture is perhaps one of my all time favorites. Oh how it makes my heart smile — you can just feel how much these sweet brothers love each other (and how smallest H does not want to be left out ;))!

urban family. natural family.

The D family wanted to mix things up a bit at our session on Saturday, so we visited my favorite urban area of Dallas and then ventured over to a beautiful field that has special meaning to their family. The Ds were married just around the corner from this field, and they love to cycle around the lake. These are also among my absolute favorite places to photograph, so I was happy to oblige. I LOVE all the variety in textures and colors we captured, and I can honestly say that I’m not sure which setting I prefer on you, Ds! But one thing is for certain — you are a beautiful, loving, connected family wherever you are!
