Ty and I loaded up Teagan and headed in to Austin this morning for his birthday session with Kerri Mathis.  I’ve been battling a cold for the better part of the week and finally feel a bit better when I got up today, so happy about that.  It’s a good thing too because it was cold this morning (well, cold for Texas standards – northerners stop rolling your eyes!).  Teagan did so great with Kerri and I am excited to see what she got.  I tried to step back and let them do their thing (that’s so hard to do!).  Kerri’s little guy was there too and I distracted myself with hanging out with him and Ty.  Is he cute or what?!

He and Ty got along so great.  In fact, on the way home in the car Ty said “Maaahmmm!  Can you believe he’s 4!?  He’s Taryn’s age but he actually listens when you talk to him?!”  Ha!  Kerri asked me to take a few shots of her and her little man together as she doesn’t have any.  That made me so sad, every momma needs photos with her baby (even if that baby isn’t a baby anymore!).   I was more than happy to oblige!!  I love the way a 4 year old just fits right there on the hip and right where the hand falls….it feels so natural to hug a little one right there.  I love capturing that.  Kerri, I hope you like these and thanks for making the trip up to capture my (2 year old) little man!

the mommas

You know what I love about this time of year?  Moms.  Moms come out of hiding.  They haul their butts from behind their own camera and they get in the photo.  They show me how much they love their kids.  Like, love them so much they just can’t hold it all in kind of love.  And they share it with me.  And let me capture that.  And I love it.

Last photo by my wonderful photographer friend Sara.  Thank you Sara, I love it (and him).

Becky is here with the kids and I’m locked away tight having a work marathon today.  Back to work I go….
