These boys, this family, just when I think they cannot steal my heart any more, they do.  Their love for one another is so big, so tangible, it’s like it is standing in the room with you.  The laughter and the questions…I probably answer a few hundred question per session, these boys are curious!  I’ve photographed them for quite a few years now, we first met when I volunteered to do some charity work for them.  It was a fundraiser with Mack and Sally Brown at UT to raise money for Cure Duchenne.  Both of their sweet boys have Duchenne MD.  Timothy is walking, that’s a miracle at his age, praise God.  Walking and dancing, they showed me their dance moves during their session this year, so fun!  I hope you’ll join in with me and make a donation to Cure Duchenne this holiday season.  We must continue to support, continue to pray, continue to hope.  Revell family, we love you, we are praying for you and we are so blessed to know you.

The arms.  The arms and rubber band wrists are killing me.  This little guy is exactly 100 days old today.  And he rounds out the very end of my shooting schedule for 2014!  It makes my neurotic side a little edgy that I’m finishing this year at 99 sessions.  How could would it have been to photograph this little guy on his 100th day of life AND have him be my 100th session.  I’m such a numbers person, and neurotic….it was only 1 off!  Gah!  It was an amazing year for me professionally, we were so blessed that our business grew by almost 40%!  I’m so excited to have met so many wonderful new clients this year and caught up with clients I’ve been photographing for years.  And while shooting is done, I still  have a handful to edit, but the end of 2014 is near and busy season is coming to a close.  I have a good 2 weeks off before our homeschool year starts up again and I will be enjoying every single second of that time with my kiddos!

And thank you to this sweet family, for sharing your baby boy with me on his 100th day of life, he’s just the sweetest!

I had the pleasure of photographing Anne and Joe for a love light session a few years ago.  I was thrilled to meet their children when she booked a family session for 2014!  The light on the morning of their session was glorious, all warm and glowing, just beautiful.  I also love that they really wanted to integrate their faith in their session.  Ann blesses her children each morning before they leave the house and wanted that moment captured.   It was beautiful to witness and capture her connecting in faith with each of her children individually and the photos of them praying as a family are some of my all time favorites.  Our next family session will definitely include us praying as a family, I need a photo of us like this too.  And once we got the kids laughing, they couldn’t stop, so fun!  Thank you Ann and Joe for sharing your beautiful family with me for awhile, it was a beautiful experience for me and I hope you love your photos.

I have enjoyed 2 sessions with this sweet family out and about in Austin.  I was really excited when they booked a session this past summer for an in home session.  To get to see where they live and love and dress up and play and cry and laugh and juggle and survive and dance.  All those things, are wrapped up at home.  These days are so fleeting.

These two remind me of two of my own.  It’s a special treat for me to get to photograph sibs with similar age gaps to my own kiddos.  It feels familiar and happy and I just love the connection between these two.  I’m pretty sure she was in his bubble and thought it was funny.  I’d vote funny AND cute.

I’ve wanted to take my kids out to the Christmas tree farm and do a session with them for the last 5 years.  But the fall is my busiest time of year with work and my own family photos are usually a mere afterthought come the beginning of December.  The fall is just so busy for us.  And then one day in early September, it hit me like a brick wall….this could be Ty’s last year living at home during the holidays.  Brick wall doesn’t adequately express how that moment felt.  I think (hope) he will be home for the holidays even if he doesn’t live here, but there are no guarantees where life will take him in the next year.  He will graduate next October and we are getting a more clear picture of what his post high school future looks like, but this is our last guaranteed holiday.  I blinked and it all just flew by, in my mind, he will always be 6.  But reality says otherwise and he we are at 17.5.  I knew that I wanted to plan ahead for photos this year, with real planned outfits and everything, like a real client lol!  We did a big family session in October with Tara (I’ll come share those soon!) and I also managed to get all 4 kids out to the Evergreen Farm in Elgin in good moods!  Score!  I’m so thrilled with these, I’ve wanted to do this forever and I’m proud that we made it work before December!  My babies, all 4 of them together, I will definitely cherish these memories and this holiday season.

After a run of bad weather, cold for Texas temps, rain and lots of reschedules, we lucked upon a GLORIOUS fall day for this session tonight.  I was so relieved since several of those being photographed are from out of town.  It had to be today!  71 degrees, yeah, we got lucky!  This family couldn’t have been more fun to be around and that little beauty up there has personality at every turn, love it!

This sweet, snuggly, chubby bub is so loved.  He looks so very much like this older brother.  Plus a few pounds, the chub rolls were to die for!
