I think it's pretty safe to say that you all know stylized sessions aren't my thing. Buuuuuut...every now and then I get inspired by a concept and give it a go. If you have an idea for your own family photo session, tell me! While I can't promise to make all of your wildest dreams come true, you never know what ideas might take!
These beautiful little ones had SO much fun splashing in their tub and I could not get over how dreamlike and summery the images turned out. I wish I had done this with my own kiddos...
My personal favorite image from this session can be seen HERE, by the way.

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!
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.
