Back in January when we were having a particularly nice day, I took my girls to a new spot I’d found, to see how I’d like it for pictures. I couldn’t believe it when my oldest actually agreed to be my model, and these are some of my favorite portraits of her – EVER. My youngest… well… my youngest… What can I say – what would my life be like if she didn’t raise my blood pressure a bit now and then – and despite that, I still managed to get a few of her that I equally love… Anyway – meet Emma (6) and Kate (4):

I was thrilled to be asked to take some more commercial images for the famous Smocked Auctions again at the end of last year. Many of the items were for spring, so I had to wait to post any – but now that Easter is behind us – I can post away! These two little girls are so adorable, and were awesome little models for me! I hope to see them again soon!

This marks the third year I have had the privilege of photographing these adorable kids – well, technically, it’s only the second year for Miss Harper, who is 2 years old (her big brothers had just found out they were getting a sister the first time I photographed them!). This year we decided to dress them up and use downtown Rockwall as our backdrop, which has some amazing beautiful locations just before the holidays, when these were taken! It was also fun to see them again outside of school – the oldest is in class with my Emma, and the 3rd boy is in class with my Kate – and these are the nicest boys you’ll ever meet (and Miss Harper is pretty darn adorable herself). Can’t wait until next year!

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged this yet – this was an event I’d been wanting to do for a while, and I LOVE how it turned out! A simple white background, and I invited kids to come in their holiday pajamas, and let their colorful clothes and adorable personalities shine! I am already planning next year’s event!

What an awesome idea this Grandma had – she brought in all three of her granddaughters, and we took some holiday portraits of them together, and also separately, and she then was able to give beautiful wall portraits to each of her kids for Christmas! These girls are just as cute as can be, and I can’t wait to see how much they grow by NEXT Christmas!

Wow – I haven’t blogged in over a month – guess I didn’t get caught up after all, did I? Today I’m sharing a mini-session I did for this awesome family in November – Miss Sadie is a baby planner (actually a graduate at this point!) – and this was the first time I got to see her new skill (walking) – and she was QUICK! My favorite shot is of her and her Mom, which was a last minute grab at the end – those are always my favorites – when we are just about done, and I have a vision for something spur of the moment – I loved it even on the back of the camera!

This sweet family ended up having to reschedule after we had some questionable weather on mini-session day – but it worked out perfectly, because we had beautiful light on the second date! These girls are so sweet, and almost exactly the same ages as MY girls! It’s like I get to pretend what it would be like to photograph cooperative daughters (mine have PCS – Photographer’s Child Syndrome). This also was my fastest session of the fall – we were finished in less than 15 minutes (may have even been 10!). Here’s a quick series from one of the spots we shot at:
I am absolutely in love with our Winter Wonderland set that we used for holiday studio mini’s this year! I have since used it for a newborn, as well as another family’s studio pictures – I love that it’s not limited to just Christmas pictures, but can also work for winter – even January – and it’s mostly neutral, which lets the kids shine, which is really the point, isn’t it?

Ballerina Portraits has become a tradition here – we had our third annual event last month, and it was a huge hit! We had several little girls come back for the third year in a row – such a special thing to watch them grow! A HUGE thank you to my friend, Tiffany Edwards, who is a wonderful dance teacher and owner of Dance Techniques – who every year does this event with me, working all day posing little girls, giving them ‘smellies’ and making them feel beautiful, special and loved. I could not do this event without her – truly! We had a great turnout this year, so I can’t share every face in this blog post – but here are a few…

This sweet sweet family came to see me in September (yep – behind on blogging… AGAIN…) – and big brother was SO excited about his new baby brother, so I had to capture a quick couple of him as well… I’m so sad that this family has moved out of town – I wish them well in El Paso!
