Ring in the New Year

After a short break it was great to get back to work while shooting this precious boy’s 6-month pictures.   He has grown and changed so much since he was born and I’m so grateful that I get to be the one to capture that.  This is such a precious little family.

Bundle the kids up in their bright hats, scarves and mittens and let me work my magic! I promise to shoot fast!

Out with a Bang!

If I wanted to end 2010 on a high note – this was the family to do that with!  They were so fun that pretty much the fact that it was getting dark was the only thing that made me stop shooting.  Enjoy and thanks for helping to round out such a great year!!

And one to grow on…

I got in one last session before Christmas this year and it was with a family that has really touched my heart.  It was a little chilly today, but they all were troopers!  I hope you enjoy your pics!!

Sweet as pie!

This little girl today was just a doll and her parents are obviously madly in love with her!

Brr!  I think we were all were all pretty frozen by the end of our session this morning!  It was pretty chilly and windy but, luckily, this family just went with it and we had a great time. 

Madly in love!

I had so much fun on Saturday down in Deep Ellum with this sweet, newly engaged couple.  They were just too cute and madly in love! 

Big boy!

 I love seeing kiddos of repeat clients grow up over the years.  This sweet boys is also going to be a big brother soon!

We were so afraid that it was going to be a tad too chilly for pics this morning but thankfully, it was gorgeous!  A beautiful day with this beautiful little girl.

Lunchtime fun!

I met this sweet family over lunch this afternoon to take pics of them with their precious little ‘O’ who is just about to be one and will be a big brother very soon!  I don’t normally do weekday sessions, but given their busy schedules and the fact that I knew they could handle my younger son crying in his stroller while I took pics, we made it work!

I was so happy when this sweet family asked me to take a four-generations portrait for them – they are just beautiful!   Luckily we caught some precious smiles of the littlest ladies as well. 

…and two to grow on!

This family was a last minute but awesome addition to my weekend!  Mom and Dad have one of the coolest 2 year olds ever and are pregnant with twins! 

This precious kiddo totally posed himself here!  He stuck his hand in his pockets and leaned on the tree like he was an old pro!  LOVED IT!

This family was so fun this afternoon!  It’s always neat to see a whole family and multiple generations together and having fun.  That’s what family is all about, after all! 

Best smiler award!

This kid gives me the BEST smiles normally –  I just had to work and little harder and be a little more patient this time.  He did not disappoint!
