Welcome, blogstalkers!NEW BLOG HERE!
A little more than a year ago, I met Lauren at one of my photography workshops and I instantly knew I liked her. She's smart, kind, lovely, and extremely talented as well. She's a fantastic mommy and I know that shows through in these images. I know it was VERY hot that evening they drove out to the studio (a long drive from Dallas, too), and I have to say her kiddos really pulled through for the session. Candy Land on the bed was a rockin' idea, Lauren! Lots of snuggles, lots of love, and lots of memories captured at this moment...when her baby girl is her baby and her son still lets her kiss him in public. Makes me catch my breath to think that will one day disappear for me, too.
And really, are you kidding me with that amazing dress??? I told her I don't care what it cost her, it was worth every penny! (Wanna see my personal fav image from the session?)
Lauren, I truly enjoyed this evening with you all and wished it didn't end. Dallas is too far, my friend. We must see each other more often!
Her mommy and I have been planning this session since last fall and when it finally came to fruition, the vision couldn't have been executed more perfectly. It was as if sundrops were falling onto our canvas that evening...painting with light and yellow and all things summery and breezy. As I was proofing these images, I kept thinking over and over, "My...this little girl is SO loved!" You can see it in the snuggles, you can see it in the way her parents look at her, you can see it in her own grin. She is a lucky little girl! Thank you, Chantal, for the honor of photographing your sweet little family.

As the oppressive summer heat settles in, my mind can't help but to drift back to my favorite season...in a setting on an evening that was pure magic. [last time we saw them...]
