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 ;))!

Family Snuggles

Nothing better than a little Sunday afternoon snuggle time with your newest little one. So glad we captured these sweet moments for you, M family. And this is just the beginning — can’t wait to show them all to you!

A boot-scootin’ birthday

Miss. C is five, and boy did she and her friends have fun celebrating Texas style at the McKinney, Texas Storybook Ranch! There was bouncing, sliding, horseback riding, a pinata, delicious cake, and my personal favorite, the Pettin’ Zoo. Just be careful, though, if you are lucky enough to visit this particular Pettin’ Zoo, not to wear your camera bag around the goats. They can get slightly aggressive when they mistakenly take it for a feed sack!

Happy 5th birthday Miss. C! Thank you for trusting me to capture your special celebration!

Double Ooh La La!

Before all the holiday craziness hit, my son and I were guests at the most fabulous Fancy Nancy birthday party. He loves an excuse to wear his bow tie (really, he does!), so I knew this party would be a huge hit. And it certainly did not disappoint. Mom thought of every last fancy detail.

It really was a fabulous soiree, complete with a fantastic art project (which is so near and dear to my heart since art is not always top on my energetic boy’s list!), yummy cupcakes, very special friends, all in the most lovely and quaint art studio. And the top hat, well…let’s just say we wore that thing out!

Miss. E, we hope you had as much fun at your 5th birthday party as we did! We loved dressing up and being fancy with you!!

What a fantastic year 2010 was for me! I am truly thankful to all of my wonderful clients who trusted me to capture what is special about each of you. And to officially show my gratitude, let’s finish the first month of 2011 off with a contest and some prizes!

The image that receives the most votes by midnight on January 31, 2011 will receive an 11×14 wall portrait of the winning image and a complimentary session with Lauren to be used any time in 2011! And my favorites certainly weren’t limited to these ten. Don’t miss the slideshow at the end of this post showing all my favorites from throughout the year. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Now, for the fine print and voting…

~ Contest will run through Januay 31, 2010 at midnight CST.

Happy Voting!

Cards, cards, cards!

I absolutely LOVE Christmas cards. I love getting them in the mail, designing them, and I even love addressing mine and getting them out the door. And this year, it was even more exciting to open the mail and receive cards that I had put together for some of my friends. A special thanks to all of the families who helped me build my portfolio this fall — I feel so honored to have been a part of your lives. So here is a little slideshow with my cards from 2010 — just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share them all with you!

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Happy Halloween!

I think we may have the cutest (and most fun!) block in Dallas, just look at these adorable little “spookers!”

We had such a great time continuing our tradition of hanging out with all of you Halloween night! Your kids are precious and you parents are such fun! Thanks everyone for coming over and celebrating with us. We feel blessed to have such great neighbors!

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!
