Who’s ready for a good surprise?! Not one of these crazy “October Surprises” this insane election cycle has been throwing our way, but a good and happy surprise?

Little Toy Car

How much fun can a little toy car be? Well, pretty fun, if you ask sweet baby blue eyes…

And a few of my sweet assistant, who just adores his little “mini me” and almost always indulges his crazy mamma’s obsession with photography.

Ok, back to editing our family photos from 2012. Hoping to catch up sometime in the next decade!

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!

  1. Ashlee Lauren Photography says: What a fun time! Great session. :D on 01.9.14 @ 8:50 pm

  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

at home

Hanging out with this sweet family is always such a treat, and this day was certainly no exception! Their home and family are so welcoming, and I never want to leave when our time together is done. I could spend hours (and have!) chatting with this wonderful mamma, and how we never met in the *lawyer world* is beyond me. But one thing is certain, this is one lucky little girl to be surrounded by such beauty, love and warmth, and I’m sure she’ll grow up to be all that and so much more!

Little Red & Her Wolf

My children *love* dressing up. Any day, all day, for any reason, so Halloween is naturally a fun-filled event at our house each year, and this year was certainly no exception! But it was a bitter-sweet year for mamma for sure, because this will most likely mark the last year that I’m able to have a big say in their costumes. Well, at least, *his* costumes. He’s six, you see, and six year olds would much rather be warewolfs than “big bad wolfs” (yes, that’s what he told his friends at school), so I’m pretty sure that this mamma’s Halloween, outfit coordinating, picture taking days might officially be over. Sniff, sniff. ;(

  1. Grandmom says: They are the cutest fairy tale characters ever! Unfortunately "little boys" grow up to be "big boys" with very definite ideas about what they want to be, however, the "big boys" are also lots of fun, just different ways. on 11.2.12 @ 2:14 pm

the dreamy session

Dreamy light, a fun set of twins and an adorable baby…all in all, I’d say it was a great night. You’ve got three special kiddos, C Family! And those twins, they’ve got an extra special connection for sure. May you two continue to be the best of friends!

their Nai Nai

Grandmothers are special. They just are. Their kisses, hugs and certainly their treats are extra special. And everyone knows there is a soft spot in every grandmother’s heart for her grandchildren. Nothing delights either of mine more than some time to be spoiled by either of their grandmas. So when the C Family wanted to include their boys’ Nai Nai in their session, well, I just knew it would be special. She clearly adores those boys, and what a wonderful thing to document for them. I know they will look back at these photos in years to come and be reminded of just how much she loves them, and that certainly is a special thing.

she sparkles

Have you ever met a child that just sparkles? You know the kind, the ones that you just make your heart smile and draw you in with their adorable, bigger-than-life personalities? There has always been something special about Baby R, and I’ve felt so honored to watch her grow up in front of my lens. As a baby, she was so sweet and cuddly with the brightest blue eyes. And if I had to describe her in one word as a toddler, it would be *sparkly.* I was so captivated by that twinkle in her eye and extra bounce in her step. We had so much fun at our session together, and she had us all in stitches the entire time. I literally could not stop giggling over all her dancing. Whether we were downtown or at home, with music or not, she danced. What a joy she is — R’s I know you know this, but you have an extra special one!

graciousness

I left this session in awe of how wonderfully well-mannered these children were. It was a pleasure to be with them this beautiful evening late last fall. They were fun, polite, sincere, sweet and just all-around delightful. I had the suspicion that this graciousness they portrayed came from their beautiful mamma, but little did I know that I would be the direct recipient of her graciousness in the weeks to come.

You see, as I was dropping her holiday cards off at her home a few weeks after their session, my Texas-sized SUV almost ran smack into her home. Yup, you read that right! I’m still not exactly sure how it happened, but we certainly averted major disaster. The terror I felt as I turned around and saw the grill of my SUV barreling towards me, entirely too close for comfort, is still with me. I mean, really, if I had waited another 10 seconds to turn around, the car would have hit me first and then her front steps! Luckily, I was able to jump in the car and stomp on the brakes just in the nick of time. Literally inches away from the steps. It still gives me the goose bumps to think of what could have been.

But what was so amazing about the whole situation, again, was the grace and warmth she met me with when she opened the door to a fear-shaken photographer and tire treads on her front lawn. Just grace and a few friendly giggles. What an incredible legacy for these three children that is already shining through their sweet personalities. Happy Mothers Day, A — I hope you spend this weekend being celebrated for the great mamma that you are!
