Someone lost a tooth just in time for their family session tonight.  I love love love capturing kiddos with missing teeth!  Something about it makes me so nostalgic….the last of the baby things to pass by I guess.  I’ve been capturing Ava since she was in her momma’s tummy….doesn’t this feel like yesterday?!


We had a very austin family session this morning.  This location was *perfect* for Allyie, Wes and the boys!


This little cutie belongs to our neighbors across the street.  They have saved us so many times in the last year by helping out with the dogs.  When we made the trip to Alabama after my step dad passed away, they were more than willing to jump in and help out.  Kylie is getting older, she’s 17.5 and fading, so it’s really a big deal for her to be able to stay at home and be comfortable vs. going to boarding.  They took such good care of her and Maggie both.  It’s so nice to have amazing neighbors, thank you for all your help guys!  I hope you love your photos of your beautiful girl!

ps – we joked that her little tongue is like a pez dispenser…every time she smiled, out it popped!  So stinking cute!


I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard while editing.  The action shots of the family in front of the “i love you so much” wall had me cracking up for days.  Thank you P Family for an awesome session!


This moment of pure joy is brought to you by Zarrin and her parents, who were shaking their booties behind me to make her laugh.  Worked like a charm.


Joan’s birthday session….she’s turning 5!  A whole hand….a big deal!  When I mentioned to her while shooting that I’d known her for her whole life, that I was there the day she was born.  She said “You were?!?!  Was I pink and beautiful?!”  Yes, sweet girl, you were pink and beautiful.  And oh yeah, that post on the left, that’s her “signature” pose.


I first met this family in 2012 when I had the honor of photographing Kellan as a newborn.  His little brother gave his family a surprise and scare by arriving at just 32 weeks.  After a NICU stay, he finally got to go home and I was able to photograph him just 2 days after his original due date.  For a preemie, he did amazingly well at his session.   And his smooshy (it’s a word!) cheeks are just swoon worthy!  And Kellan is just the sweetest big brother ever.  Welcome earth side little one, you are so very loved.


The perfect little bump in my previous blog post turned out to be this perfect little beautiful baby girl.  She was sweet and just full of snuggles.  Thank you V family for asking me to capture such a precious time in your lives, it was an honor.  Congratulations on your beautiful daughter!

ps – The beautiful pink wrap used in this session was given to me by my brother-in-law.  He travels the world as a trainer for Chilis and came across a gorgeous handmade pink wrap in Turkey during one of his trips.  He brought it back to Texas for me and I finally found the perfect baby to wrap it up in, it’s just gorgeous!


I haven’t had a lot of extra time to come blog mini session but man, I just couldn’t file these away in archive without sharing a few favorites.  These two are stunning, we were blessed with a gorgeous location and gorgeous light!  And wait until you see their beautiful baby girl!

Jonah has been talking so much.  His vocabulary is just insane to me.  This afternoon, he woke up from his nap and wanted to nurse for a few minutes.  When he was ready to get up, he looked over at the rocking chair in my bedroom.  Jase had left a pair of jeans flung over the edge with his belt still in the loops.  Jonah immediately says…

“Daddy, where Daddy?  I need to bring Daddy his pants.”

I told him Daddy wasn’t home, he was at the store.

“Daddy not home??  Daddy at the store??  WITHOUT HIS PANTS?!?!?”

I had to explain that Daddy was wearing pants at the store, just not *those* pants.  All while cracking up.  Funny kid.

And if you didn’t catch this over on Instagram last week, it’s worth a click over.  Kid is a total crack up.


This little beauty is about to turn 1 in just a few short weeks.  Her newborn photo graces the front page of my website, she’s changed so much since then!  Happy Birthday sweet baby girl!


These two stole my heart this morning.  I knew he was sweet on his baby sister at her newborn session but the sweetness has grown by leaps and bounds (as have they!).  Taryn rarely took her eyes off Tino, always scanning to watch him.  And if she started to fuss, he was right there to kiss her hand or her forehead.  It was seriously the sweetest thing ever.
