A little birdie told me that butterflies were among this little beauty's favorite things. SOOOO, I enlisted the help of my boys to round up a collection of butterflies for their family session. I was so eager to show her my surprise for her, but much to *our* surprise, she was quite afraid of them :-(. Well...she was cool with it when mommy or daddy was holding them, but if one landed on her...oh my. At least we were lucky enough to get that one lovely shot up there.
But my personal fav is the one I caught of dad hanging on the monkey bars. So glad we went to the park so he could have some playtime, LOL!
No really. This has to be one of my most memorable lifestyle family photo sessions from last holiday season and I can't believe I haven't shared it yet. Why is it memorable? Because to me, it fully embodies lifestyle family photography with the perfect balance of getting those great smiling images and then those little moments in between. I find that it's often those little moments that have the greatest impact when viewing the pictures years down the road. Look at the way mom is looking at her baby in the last image...my word, can you feel the intensity of her love?
Rumor has it that I get to work with little sister again for an upcoming commercial shoot for Baby Bugaloo and Gro Boutique! Can't wait to see how much she has grown!!!!

When mama completed her client questionnaire, she was quite detailed and had tons of ideas for her session. I like that. It gives me something to work with. We always have the understanding that's it's most likely we'll only get to one or two, but I think she and I were both surprised we checked pretty much everything off her list...and then some.
First on the list: "Welcome to Austin"
Next up: snuggles, togetherness, and painted toes--even on big brother:
Check. Check. Check.
Sidewalk chalk, rainbows, and bubbles:
Check-ity, check, check.
Grand finale: A sign that says "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere." ??? That one stumped me. But mom came prepared...
Big ol' check + the added bonus of a "juice box happy hour" (phrase coined by Dad). I loved it. I absolutely LOVED it!
