Tiny Valentines Photo Shoot

Boy did we have fun last weekend. This is the second year in a row that I have done a playgroup photo shoot for Valentines Day and the response this year was incredible! Thanks to everyone who dressed up your tiny Valentine and came out to join in the fun. I, for one, had a fantastic time. Enjoy your photos!

G-Man’s “One in a Minion” Party

This is another one of those families that is incredibly special to me and I am honored to now be a part of their little G-man’s life. If you’ll remember, I did a newborn shoot of this guy and then a 1-year birthday last December. I cannot believe that this guy is now such a grown up 2-year old! Check out his redheaded preciousness (and his minion friends). *Note: I obviously did not take that first photo but I had to include one of me (a.k.a. Auntie RahRah) with the birthday boy.

The H Family’s Hill Country Portrait Session

Well this shoot was just fun. I met the H Family for a portrait session in the Hill Country, one of my very favorite places in the world. And, to my delight, we started out with a little celebration of Movember. Mom, Dad, and all 4 kids were ready to sport their staches (only one was real… but which one?). Then, after a quick shave, we got down to business. The fall colors, the smiles, and the brave kiddos (it was COLD ya’ll) made for a delightful afternoon. Thanks H Family!

My People :-)

Well 2015 is winding down and, like any year, it has been full of ups and downs. But one of the most wonderful “ups” of my 2015 was the birth of my little nephew. It was so fun to get to include him in my bro and sis-in-law’s family portraits. And of course we were in my very favorite place – the Texas Hill Country. I can’t get enough of these people, these trees, these hills. Glad that they will be coming with me into 2016 🙂

The V Family is Expecting!

The V Family is having another baby! This is a family that I have so loved photographing because I have had the privilege of seeing their first child grow and change. And soon he will be welcoming a sibling! I could not be happier for this sweet family and am looking forward to seeing one more smiling face in their family photos 🙂

T Family Christmas Pictures

Mrs. T is one of my oldest friends. Check that, she is my oldest friend – approaching 3 decades ya’ll. So it is a delight for me to periodically photograph their family, especially their precious (quickly growing!) little guy. He was cracking me up during this shoot, giving me the sweetest combination of obedient smiles and mischievous grins. Check it out!

K Family Mini Session

I could not love this family more: my beautiful friend, her beautiful kids, and this time we even had a bonus – their beautiful auntie! It’s just fun to see these five together. There’s something really special about the bond between siblings and it was fun to see, not only the kiddos’ interactions, but also the sisters. Thanks for your friendship, K Family. Can I be an honorary sister please? 😉

T Family Mini Session

Okay get ready for a barrage of mini session posts! We had so much fun on South Blvd last weekend. It is not easy for a kiddo to get comfortable and smiley in a short 20-minute session, but the T family boys were little pros. And I cannot get over those matching plaid shirts. Cuteness overload!

Baby G 1-Year Portraits

2 years ago, I had the honor of photographing this sweet baby girl. What a treat it was, then, to photograph her little brother who is turning 1! This shoot really could not have gone better. For one thing, his parents were ultra-prepared, from clothes to props to extra lighting in the nursery (a photographer’s dream!). On top of all that, Baby G just hammed it up for the full hour – smiling and laughing and playing with his airplanes. I could not have asked for a better little model. Take a look:

L Family on South

Well the stars aligned for this sweet family session. Our location on South Blvd was (as usual) lovely and the morning light was GORGEOUS. Plus it doesn’t hurt that Baby L was precious, happy, and ready for his close-up 🙂 Thanks for sharing your Saturday morning with me, L Family!
