Jackson and Tobin have grown so much since last fall!  They both sprouted up and look so much taller!  We had a great time, even though it was cold, exploring campus.  The boys were super excited because they were heading straight to Big Bend on a camping trip from our session!

 

This is my second year photographing this family.  I thought they couldn’t get any cuter.  Totally wrong!  I don’t think I’ve ever met 4 children who were so so sweet to one another and well behaved.  They make photographing them feel so easy!  They are also the owners of Tequila 512, an amazing Austin based company!  Go check them out!

Emily and I have talked about doing this session with Adelaide for quite awhile and I’m so happy we finally made it happen.  This girl, she loves her animals.  This is her element, her happy place, where she connects and it was such an honor to be invited in to her happy place to capture those special relationships.  The animals respond to her with so much love and affection.  And we couldn’t have been blessed with more gorgeous light on this day.

Mr. L has the most perfect little pout.  And smile.  And wardrobe.  His little man clothes are killing me!  So very cute!  We were hoping he’d dive in to his cake, but he just wasn’t feeling it.  He’s so cute though, it all worked out!  Ha!

As much as I really love photographing 6 month old babies, 9 month old babies are right up there too!  Those chubby cheeks and open mouth big kisses are just the best!

Tons of cute, beautiful light, a few gorgeous dimples….all with a side of wrestling.  Makes for a gorgeous session!  Add to it that mom and dad were celebrating their wedding anniversary on this day and it was just magic.

They always bring their A game!  The energy and fun is always a blast with this sweet family!  And I love that the boys come up with their own ideas of what to do and where to go during our time together.  It’s just the best!

One of my most favorite families!  The girls have grown up so much.  I swear Ms. Ava reminds me of a little mini Cindy Crawford!  This was a super fun location to capture them in – I love how their personalities just shine through!

I’m pretty sure I’ve probably seen Jenn in the grocery store a million times, or Target.  Because now that I know her, I see her ALL THE TIME!  It’s funny really how often we run in to each other!  Jason and I took a Hypnobirthing class at Central Texas Birth Center in the second trimester and Jenn was our instructor.  I can’t recommend her enough.  Even though this is our 5th child, we still go so much out of the class.  She made it fun and interesting and Jason actually even laughed out loud in her classes.  I highly recommend it if you are in the Austin area!  It was a total bonus that I got to meet her sweet family and photograph them.  Jenn you are beautiful inside and out and I’m so thankful I can now call you my friend.

My friend Sarah and her family traveled to Austin in the fall for this session and I just have to share the words she shared when she saw her sneak peek:

“This morning was challenging. Neither girl wanted to be photographed, neither one wanted to be held, or sit on a lap, or smile, or hug her sister, or wear shoes, or generally do anything to make our morning a little easier. Lyndsay reassured me the whole time, saying, “Chaos photographs really well.” She was right.”

I tell clients that alllll the time.  Cute with the perfect amount of chaos lets us see real personalities and that always photographs well.  So if your kids bring the chaos, don’t worry, that works for me!  And what feels like chaos to parents, feels totally normal to me.  I’ll soon have 5 kids and my life is pretty much all chaos, all the time.  I say bring it on!  Sarah and Royal, thanks for making the trip to Austin for your session, I loved seeing you guys again!

The little boy energy!  It’s just the best!  It feels so much like hanging out with my own Jude and Jonah.  I love all the expressions and smiles and giggles.  So real and so very much fun!

For Joan’s birthday session this year we decided to head to South Congress.  We haven’t been there with her since she was itty bitty and it was just perfect.  All the color in this session makes me so happy.  It’s so very her.  I love how she poses herself for me and has her own ideas on what to wear and where the best spot is to take photos.  She’s strong and bright and funny and colorful.  And someone lost a tooth just in time for her closeups!
