Now what’s better than a family who lives out of state requesting a session while they’re in town?! I’m so honored and hope I lived up to your hopes!
It’s not everyday I get to photograph big kids! And what a stunning brother and sister I had to work with!
I just had to do something a little different, and they were such great sports!
This one makes me smile. [It was right after the flower comment!]
Of course we have some nice smiley pictures, too, but you know I just love those in between moments! 🙂
I was lucky enough to have a session with these dear friends in some glorious light. We battled mosquitos (they won) at our neighborhood park, but I have to say that it was well worth the “pain”!
Wish I could say that I worked some sort of magic to get this first picture… okay maybe just a pinch, but it was really the natural and easy sibling connection here that made my job simple. They just interact so beautifully without fuss and I really watching it unfold (and snapping away).
And you would think this is big sister number two, but no, this is mama! *sigh* I love this picture!
And my two favorite family pictures from the session:
P.S. Good job on the color coordinating! Love it!
Meet the awesome Nixons. They have four children and an exchange student that is also totally awesome. They moved to Austin from Phoenix (woo hoo!). They are both organized and creative, which still makes my head spin. And we had a lot of fun walking around downtown last weekend.
Hello pretty lady!
Thank you, friends, for letting me photograph your sweet family!
First, I want to say that this is exactly how I looked when I was eight months pregnant. Okay, not so much! A few too many Oreos for me. I was so very thrilled to do a maternity session with my photographer friend, Mollie. It’s always fun to drag photographers out from behind their camera! I think the only thing that makes me happier about this is that I get to do a family session with their newborn!!
She put up with my crazy ideas, and I was very glad for that. 🙂
Are they not just the cutest?
Not every picture in a maternity session needs to show off the belly!
I’m going to have to post more from this series later. There are some REALLY stinkin’ adorable ones!
*sigh* This one is my favorite from the session!
Aren’t they the cutest?
I. Love. This. One!
And this one.
And one of the little miss…
Check out Mollie’s work at Bloom Austin.
Let’s just say that I ADORE the pictures from this session!
All done playing with the stick!
I know it’s not perfect in many ways, but this is one of my favorite pictures from the session:
Now, surely after all of these pictures, this little guy was too tired and cranky for more… right? Well, no. And I didn’t give a sneak peek for several spots we visited, too! He’s made for the camera! One more little moment that just so fully captures childhood to me… sticks on a stone wall… drums of course!
that they’re in love? Have I told you how much I LOVE when married couples contact me for couples pictures? This duo is going on six years together!
I was super excited about this picture!
Thank you P fam – I had lots of fun and even picked up a couple rules of golf etiquette from you both!
Well, when baby just had training in Colorado, anyways! It was a cold day yesterday, but this little guy absolutely loved it! Do you remember his superman picture from the blog contest? He’s famous now, isn’t he? He never disappoints!
I was getting this hat in a picture no matter what. Good choice, mom!
I looooooove this picture; it is so him (from what I gather)!
Please I beg you, if you have a sock monkey, do not hide it. I love these things!
You never know what will happen at a session. This was the very first time he actually scooted his little airplane all by himself. Caught on camera!
Thank you P family! You made this blog post very difficult for me… way too many cute little faces to select from!
