little treasures

I normally don’t blog mini sessions beyond the initial sneak peek but I was cleaning off my hard drive and doing some ordering and archiving tonight and decided to pull a few little treasures to share.   The last one may seem like a funny choice to share, but it pulls at my heart for a different reason.  This was the last shot of the day, last photo of this beautiful family as a four (about to be five!).  Truth be told, I had already put my camera away and it was packed in my bag.  I said goodbye and about half way down the walk way to my van when I turned to look back and I saw this scene.  It made me smile so much that I stopped, dug out my camera and caught the moment.  I love it because it is them.  Smiling and relaxed and little kisses being blown.  It’s telling of their place in life, hanging out with toddlers, a note to the left of the door asking visitors to not ring the bell and wake up a little one.  The door just barely cracked tells us how incredibly welcome and warm they are when you’re invited into their home.  I’m pretty thankful they let me in to capture it every now and then.

And grow and change they did…

When we moved to Austin I was 5 months pregnant with Teagan. We didn’t open Life in Motion here right away, we closed the business in Louisiana and let our move linger into maternity leave. I took 6 months off to stay home with Teagan before I was itching to get back to work. My very first full session on the books was for an adorable little family with a 3 month old little boy named John Michael. That adorable family is now ever more adorable believe it or not as they have added to their crew. I was thrilled when they invited me back after the birth of their second son Noah, who is also 3 months old. I know I’ve said it a million times but I truly am so lucky to be invited in to the homes of my clients and capture how much they have grown and changed. And grow and change they did…

Mary Beth and Michael, thank you for asking me to document your beautiful family again!

they warned me

I got fun little text messages from her parents leading up to this session that warned me she is really cute.  and a poser.  and totally perfect.  at 11 days old, I have to agree, she is.

she rocked her session today with lots of sleep, sweet gazes into the camera, a few smiles, a lot of snuggles and and whole lot of sweetness.

and yes, i realize it isn’t very nice to not show you the insane amount of cuteness at the other end of the highchair photo, but trust me, it’ll be worth the wait!!

There are sessions that I can’t wait to run home and download and absorb the images one by one.  This was one of those!  In fact, I couldn’t even wait until I got home….I thumbed through my memory cards, image by image, sitting in the parking lot at the location….

Their pre-session client survey indicated green in their images, architecture, coy smiles, happy little boys, big blue eyes, laughs and a whole lot of love.  And that is exactly what they showed up with and shared with me.  Love it!  Larisa & Greg, it was so great to spend the morning with your family….thank you for trusting me when I said “hey, let’s meet in a parking garage”!  😉  Happy first birthday sweet boys!!

birthday boys

Cooper and Spencer turned one and I got to hang out with them one morning to help celebrate.  And while their super cute names might be Cooper and Spencer, to me they will always be Gilligan and Skipper (a la Little Monsters Bash last Halloween).  I can’t wait to see what they dress up as this year, but no pressure Joyce!  HA!

We’ll start off this blog post with this end….pretty darn cute aren’t they?

Uh, yes, yes, they are.  I mean look at those arms, those rubber band wrists, the dimples and the rock star hair….

And we’ll end this blog post with the other end.  Also pretty darn cute.  Man I’m a sucker for little boys in chucks (and girls too!).  If I was forced to confess the number of pairs in my house alone, let’s just say it’s in the double digits.  Lots.  In multiple colors and sizes for each child AND the adults.  Love me some chucks!

Don’t you just want to reach up and pinch those little chubby thighs?!  I do!  So cute!!

C Family – it’s always a joy to see you guys and I’m so thankful you chose me to capture them during their first year!  Happy Birthday boys!!
