honored

What an honor it was to be contacted by this talented photographer for a session with his family. They were such a pleasure to work with and oh so in love with each other and that darling baby girl of theirs. And those baby shoes! I had heard of them before, but I had never seen them in person. Let’s just say that I’m now officially hooked! I won’t embarrass myself by telling you how many pairs we have bought since this session! Thank you, N Family, for trusting me to capture you together this year. I am truly honored.

Flyin’ High

She loves to swing high, *really* high. As high as the sky. And in her little mind, I think she believes that one day she just might get to touch the sky. She loves it so much that she wants to squeeze into the baby swing at the park so I can push her harder, higher. So she can get that much closer. And every time she is simply abandoned to joy. The contagious kind. The kind that makes everyone around smile … *especially* me.

an unexpected detour

I was so excited about my vision for this family session. It involved this reflecting pool, beautiful flowers and an adorable 4-year-old little girl. But when I arrived at our intended destination, there were tents, DJs and marketing promotions everywhere! Little did we know that it would be a major stop for the Dallas Marathon that was going on that morning. Eeek! So we did a u-turn and headed deeper into downtown, which turned out to be the perfect backdrop for this ultra-hip, fun family of three. Thanks, Ms, for being flexible and making the most out of our unexpected turn of events! Your love for each other clearly shines no matter where you are, and I happen to love the graffiti wall we stumbled upon! 🙂

And while I’m at it, I realized that I had never shared more from this beautiful and incredibly talented mamma’s yoga headshot session from earlier this year. Can you believe the grace and precision in these poses?!?

my little kitty

I came home from my session yesterday with this little prince to the most adorable little kitty cat. She was so proud of her “makeup” and told everyone we saw last night at dinner that she was not Catwoman (as her Batman obsessed older brother tried to convince her to be) but a nice kitty cat. I loved your “makeup” too, sweet Madeleine, and think you make the most beautiful nice kitty that ever was.

Nine hundred & thirty-three pieces,

several weeks and lots of hard work later, and we have a castle! A really cool castle. I am so proud of my boys for all their perseverance and patience and look forward to the duels that will surely ensue. Let the castle fun begin!

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!

Goodbye 2011 !

As I’m sure many of us are doing today, I’ve been thinking a lot about what 2011 was to our family. In many ways, it was an exciting year full of fun, adventure and change. But in other ways, it was a hard year for our young family, perhaps the hardest yet. We faced many hurdles these past six months, some of which seemed like insurmountable giants. But I am happy to say that today we stand stronger, more thankful for our blessings and more sure of our faith than we have ever been before. God was faithful and has answered many of our prayers. So tonight we’ll raise a glass to a new year. For the first time in a long time, it actually feels like a new start, a new beginning, and THAT is exciting! 🙂

I’ll be taking some time off in 2012. Not sure how much yet, but if you would like to be notified when I open my schedule back up, send me a line. I’d be happy to keep you posted! And don’t worry if you’ve already paid for a 2012 session — you’re still on my books! 🙂 While I take my “time off,” I plan to spend loads of time with these two little munchkins, soaking up every minute of their cuteness. You’ll probably be seeing a bit more of them here, and I’ll continue to share my fall sessions too — there’s some great stuff coming up! Happy New Year Everyone!!

Smurf’d

Sweet Baby M had so much fun digging into her first birthday cake at the end of our session together, and boy did we have a good laugh over the blue little smurf that she became…

And those weren’t the only laughs we shared this beautiful September evening (yes, I’m just now getting to my fall sessions!). There is such an ease and effortlessness about your love for each other, N family, and you are so much fun to be around! Thank you for trusting me to capture these precious moments in your family’s journey through life.
