I just had to share. 🙂

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 have one sweet little love to share with you today! He was awake for most of the session and then we watched as he nodded out (got a cute almost-asleep close-up!) near the end. It’s amazing to me that these tiny ones already have their own little set of likes and dislikes and hints of what their personality will be like.
This time I’m starting with a couple pictures of mommy and baby because I’m just too excited about them! She’s just gorgeous anytime, but I think the first picture of her laughing is extra special. 🙂
And just as he dozed off and everything was perfect for his laying over the chair picture, he turned his head the other direction! Thought it was a good time for hands/feet pictures instead!
I love this expression!
His nursery is too cute! I love, love, love the squares painted on the wall and his polka dot sheet!
Thank you so much for letting me capture little C at such a precious time!
I love repeat clients! I cannot believe how much this little lady has grown and changed since her newborn pictures! She has such a joyful spirit. We did this session earlier in the week as a surprise for daddy’s birthday present!
Such pretty girls!
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.
When my son was born so many moms with grown kids told me to enjoy each day, because the days will go by quickly. Each time I heard this I thought that they were crazy. That first year was the l-o-n-g-e-s-t year of my life, but they told me so firmly and so assuredly that I knew at some point it would be advice to heed. Sure enough, the days are just flying by now.
I opened these pictures today and cried. My little boy is growing so quickly. I thought about what I hope he remembers about his childhood. I hope he remembers it as magical. I hope he remembers exploring, wondering, discovering. I hope he remembers friends and laughter and joy. I hope he remembers hunting for bugs with daddy in the backyard and pitching tents in my office and hiding from the “rain” with mommy.
I took these yesterday at his playdate with his best buddy; they make me smile because they are just two boys being boys!
And what post about two boys would be complete without this?
Here are a few more from a session a couple weeks ago. I finished editing today and just couldn’t help myself. 🙂
