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 try my best not to play favorites, both when it comes to my kids, and also to my sessions, which are kinda like my kids! Each session is unique, and has elements that I fall in love with. In the case of this family – we had to reschedule their first session due to bad weather, and ended up scheduling in the evening (instead of the original morning timeslot). I’m so glad we did – I was able to make use of the downtown Rockwall square in a new way, and the lighting was perfection! It helps when the family is as adorable as this one, and although I SAY I don’t play favorites – this was truly one of my favorites from the fall…
Meet the J family. They are not just clients – they are family friends. Also – they are the VERY first family that ever let me take family portraits (and newborn portraits, now that I’m thinking about it!), and I’m forever grateful at what that has allowed me to do. When you are around them, you wish you were part of their family, and that speaks volumes. Scroll down to see their first family portrait from 2008 – we’ve both come a long way!
This fall marked three years that I’ve been taking portraits of these three brothers. They are some of the sweetest boys I’ve ever met, and luckily their mom and I have already agreed upon an arranged marriage between her oldest, and my daughter Emma – so I should be photographing them for years to come! Ha!

This super nice family took advantage of our fall family mini sessions at Harry Myers Park at the end of November – and I’m not sure I’ve photographed a little boy with more energy! I had a great time, and love their portraits!
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!

Hello! Happy January! I have been enjoying some time off, followed by working only very part-time while easing back into things this year! I had planned to be back full force this week, but alas, we were struck by the flu in our house – my youngest has been home from school all week, so I’ve extended my part-time schedule to make time for extra snuggles while nursing her back to health. I’m excited for next week when things will go back to ‘normal’ – I have so many plans for 2013 – I can hardly decide where to begin! So – for now, I’ll work on catching up the blog, by posting this lovely family who drove over from Greenville, TX for our session, and Harry Myers Park was the perfect setting! I couldn’t believe how grown Miss Ella was – I did her newborn portraits back in March – you can check them out here.

How cool is it that this Dad/Daughter duo thought to have portraits taken together? We usually think of trying to capture our kids when they are little when they are changing so fast – but then something happens when they get a little bit older, and we tend not to document with professional portraits as often. But how special will it be down the road, to have these to look back on? I was able to capture a bit of ‘cool’ – but also managed to get that sweet daddy-daughter bond between these two…

Prior to this year – I hadn’t shot many sessions in downtown Rockwall – but this year, I was so glad I decided to give it a whirl – it was PERFECT for family mini-sessions with families wearing their holiday best! This is one of those families – probably my best-dressed family of the fall! That didn’t stop the kids from having some fun, though… Here are a few…

This is another family that has allowed me to photograph them for several years – even before 2-year old Landry was born! She is spunky and full of energy, and I can’t imagine this family without her…
