These five sweet sisters made our session so much fun and they made such beautiful models!
Maybe I'm a little biased since three of these beautiful young ladies are my own bonus daughters, and I've been a part of the other two's lives since they were born, but they all really are so great in front of the camera! Oldest sister Azriel was so amazing at helping to keep littlest Ainsley happy and occupied between shots. And second oldest Ava and second youngest Anna were so fun to watch as they kept racing around together and checking out the area around us. Sweet sweet middle sister Alanna was a wonderful and giggly help whenever I needed an extra hand!
Sibling sessions are one of my favorite sessions to do because I just love capturing all the unique and interesting relationships between siblings! Contact me and let's capture those sweet, silly, beautiful moments between your darling kiddos today! ♥
As a photographer, sometimes I have ideas that I want to try out first, before I decide if I want to offer them to my clients. This usually means either putting out a model call, or using the four gorgeous models I have lounging around my house. ;)
So when I thought about offering pajama and plushie sessions, of course I wanted to try it out first. And even though I decided not to offer them for this years holiday mini sessions, we did have such a blast shooting them! And that's the most important thing, isn't it? ♥
Sweet sweet Myla. I just love when her mom calls me up and says "Myla needs a session!" because I know it's always going to be something fun and different and oh so very Myla, whether it's a BoHo theme or a glamourous dress up time. This year was no exception! Myla has a gorgeous collection of American Girl dolls and she felt they needed some camera time. So what better activity than a tea party!
But first, we had a little fun on the playground with one of her favorite dolls. They both even got a little time on the swings! ;)
I can't wait until our next session to see what Myla has in store for me and my camera!
I just ADORE sibling sessions! And I especially love working with brothers, Kyler and Daxin!
This was our second session together, and this time we got to add in a sweet little sister, Melia!
Kyler just shines as a totally devoted big brother, and Daxin is following right in his footsteps. Melia is one very loved little girl, no doubt about it. ♥
Even though my speciality may be in tweens and teens, I still take on a few Family sessions each year in the fall.
Vanessa, James and sweet little Eli were one of those families, and we had such a blast! I loved getting to step back for a moment and just watch this adorable little family play and interact together on the playground. Eli just LOVED going down the slide, over and over again! And he couldn't stop laughing and smiling while flying high on the swings!
He was a little less interested when we moved away from the playground to do some more focused family shots, but we still managed to get a smile or two from him!
I still have a few openings left for family sessions this fall. It's the perfect time of year to update those family photos, so let's talk!
Back to School means another chance to work with my gorgeous tween rep model, Jade!
After a fun-filled, active summer, Jade is ready to get back to school and get back to the books.
Armed with an adorable backpack, her tablet, and some very yummy green tea, she is ready to take on the 7th grade! And I have no doubt she is going to rock this school year!
There's still time to book your tween or teen a Back to School session! Contact me today and let's make it happen!
Goodbye Summer, and Hello Autumn!
It is almost time for school to start again, and what better way to celebrate and to capture this fleeting moment of the year, than with Back To School photos?
Daniel is entering the 7th grade, and I can't believe how much he's changed and grown since this time last year! I love his new sense of style, and the early signs of interest he's showing in his appearance. We had so much fun shooting this little mini session. It didn't take much for his goofy, playful personality just shined in each shot!
Back to School might happen every year, but each year is so different from the last. These really are once in a lifetime moments. Don't miss out on them!
Oh my darling sweet little boy. The one who makes my heart beat, who makes my every day brighter. Today, he turned twelve years old.
How can that be? When did this happen? And where is my sweet little baby?
Twelve whole years.
Twelve years of watching him grow, and laugh, and learn.
Twelve years of teaching him, and learning from him.
Twelve years of fart jokes, and bedtime hugs and kisses.
We are on the cusp on a whole new way of life. He is almost a teenager, getting ready to stretch his wings and test his independance. But that's ok.
Because he has shown me in these first twelve years what kind of man he is going to become.
And he will be a great one.
Today, he is just twelve years old.
He still lets me hold his hand when we walk down the street.
He still wants to be tucked in every night (unless he has friends over, then he'll come get his hugs and kisses from me in private).
He's still small enough for me to pick up and squeeze (though just barely.)
He is only twelve.
Having 1 son and 3 daughters, all in their tween and teen years, means I am never short on beautiful models. And while most of the time, it's my gorgeous redheaded oldest daughter, or my handsome boy, this time it was my sweet little Alanna, our youngest, who said "I want to do a photo session!" And when they ask, it's so hard to say no!
So we sat down and talked about what she wanted to wear and what kind of photos she wanted to do.
"I want to look like a fashion model! Like with wild, crazy hair! Ooo and I want to wear one of the prom dresses!" What 9 year old WOULDN'T want to play dress up with a big, gorgeous gown? And lucky her, I keep plenty on hand to choose from.
So fashion model is the look we went with, and I think they turned out incredibly stunning. I still just can not get over how grown up she is getting to be. Just a few months away from being 10, I can easily see the sweet, funny, beautiful young woman she will be in just a few years. ♥
One of my favorite parts about being an East Texas teen and tween photographer is being able to shoot "Uniquely You" sessions with my clients! I absolutely LOVE getting to dedicate so much time and effort in showing these beautiful and amazing teens and tweens how unique and wonderful they are. And Riley's session was no exception!
An incoming freshman, cheerleader, and soccer player, Riley is a fantastically talented and gorgeous young woman. I loved getting to spend a little time watching her show off her soccer skills (in heels no less!) and getting to know more about the intelligent girl behind that beautiful smile.
Uniquely You sessions are a perfect opportunity to let your teen or tween's personality shine.
