And by "toasty," I mean we were working in the triple digits. But bless the three (four?) of them...they gave their hearts for their photo session and even put up with my indecisive parking error ;-) (gotta love Austin and her random middle-of-the-week-blow-out-concerts). I was *very* tempted to jump into that fountain myself, by the way.

Little man's smile was totally contagious while I was editing this session and it really made me even more excited to meet that little girl still cooking away. I think she's going to be pretty happy to find she has two amazing parents and a super-loving big brother all ready to welcome her.

On the subject of newborn photography, in case you missed it, photogs, my feature in Pix Magazine came out this week. What a cool publication and it's FREE!

P.S. Be sure to see my personal favorite image from this session not shown here, but HERE ;-)

Night night!

On July 4th, it was exactly one year ago when I first met him. I've had the wonderful opportunity to watch him grow and change, little by little, over the past year with mini sessions to mark each of his milestones. But, boy did we have fun at this last one. He is such a JOY!!!

For giggles, I thought I'd throw this together (although I'm bummed to realize we didn't do the tie at his 4 month session):

Boy can wear a tie, though!

Well, let me tell you, Corpus Christi puts on quite the fireworks display! We were absolutely blown way (no pun intended) and thanks to my Mother-in-law and the Texas State Aquarium, we had the *best* seats in house as they shot off the fireworks from the deck of the Lexington. I totally should have recorded my kids' reaction to the show instead of taking pictures. They were hilariously thrilled by it all!

When we left to head down to Corpus, I threw my star filter in my bag...thought it might look cool with the fireworks. Whoa, did it ever!!! Lord knows I love sparkles and this just took the cake ;-).

Hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday (even if it was in the middle of the week).

I was totally honored and thrilled when Spanki asked me to come be a guest speaker at her Austin workshop in May. I've "known" Spanki online for about a year and we don't live that far apart, but we've never had a chance to meet. What a fantastic afternoon!!!! My only regrets were that #1 it was TOO hot and #2 it was TOO short. I was sad I couldn't stay longer and hang with the girls...we were having so much fun shooting in downtown Austin. 

Spanki...it was awesome to finally meet you and you are just as beautiful and warm and energetic in person as you are online. I truly hope we can work together again in the future, my dear!

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!
