When I put up a post last week that I was making an unexpected trip to Houston, my photographer friend Wendi emailed me and grabbed it. And she knew just what she wanted….”birth photographer Lyndsay to show up”. Wendi wanted all the little real moment captured of her family at home, doing what they do, eating popcorn, playing, dress up, couch jumping, snuggling in bed, playing legos, painting toenails, all of that and more. She wanted me to capture them…..living. I LOVE that. In fact, when she emailed me about it I shared with her that I’m so smitten with this idea that Jase and I hired someone a few months ago to come in and do the exact […]
My second unexpected, super short notice session for this weekend took place this morning in my absolute favorite location! This beautiful family is from Waco and when I found out where they live I happily offered to meet them in the middle in Salado because I adore shooting there. We went exploring by the river (it was actually moving water instead of puddles with all the recent rain!) and then hit a few of my favorite spots around Salado. Our goal was a few family photos and to get mom in the picture since she’s usually behind the camera. I can relate to that a little. Ok, ok, a lot. And I love it when moms come out of […]
It was a lot of fun to surprise this momma and so fun to photograph this family….I loved every.single.second of it. The good news is, she not only forgave me for the lie I told her but she’s also quickly filling up my “happy” file folder in my inbox with kind words and wonderful, thoughtful emails. Em, thank you for making me feel so good about what I do!
Now to the pics! Little miss and I are very close friends now, just ask her, she’ll tell ya 😉 I love love love getting emails from her momma about her funny little conversations about our time together.
And this little guy, one […]
The Dealing for Duchenne event last night was a-mazing. I’ll be back to blog about it this week, but wow, we’re still letting it all sink in, amazing.
In the meantime, we are taking off with my mom and the kids to the San Antonio Zoo, their other surprise! Taryn’s dream comes true today….my girl is an animal love through and through. After we told her about where we would be going I gave her a map I had printed out of the zoo, she’s already formed out game plan!!
And I can’t leave without posting a few photos. LOVED this session! So much so that I’ll be back to share just about the entire gallery this week!!
It’s almost time, I’ve also been tying up loose ends with the Dealing for Duchenne fundraiser that is this coming up Saturday at the UT Golf Club. I know Julie and the other co-chairs have been working so hard to get ready and it’s going to be SO worth it! It’s not too late to get your tickets, it’s going to be an awesome night, famous people, casino gambling, an auction, all for a great cause! I am donating a full session to the silent auction, I can’t wait to see who wins it!! More than anything, I can’t wait to see Tim, Laura, Timmy and Andrew surrounded by love […]
Miss Belle is also a little bitty thing weighing in at around 5 lbs at birth. I also photographed her birth but I am still working on proofing those images (halfway done Pam!). Her parents chose to have me proof her newborn photos first so they could get announcements out but I wanted to take a quick break and come share a few. LOVED this session. The color, the moments, everything. When I arrived I asked if they were friendly with their neighbors because it would be great to use the flowers in their yard as a backdrop. They thought I meant the beautiful, manicured yard two doors down…nope not me….I was drawn the house across the street that hadn’t […]
