It’s another graduating baby planner!! Oh I hate it when they get all old and leave me.

Scheduling with this little one was TOUGH. We kept getting rained out! I believe we got rained out 3 times before I completely gave up and started just getting mom and dad’s work schedule at the beginning of the week and we did it on the first nice day that we were all available. It worked out!

So I met up with this sweet girl and her parents for her one year baby portraits. She is just SO cute. Those eyes! Those cheeks! I could eat her up. And mom and dad were totally game with letting her do whatever she wanted so that made my job a lot easier. I love when I can just let them explore (as one year olds are so good at doing) and I just follow. They would pick her up and toss her around and play with her and then she’d just run off and fall down and just explore. It was great.

Enjoy.

This session started out all wrong. We had agreed to meet at North Park, on a Saturday morning, for these family photos. The weather was beautiful. Everything was perfect. And then I arrived. And there were approximately 1000 other people there. So … yeah … there was a race that day. Maybe not the best spot. So after trying to find parking we decided to give it a go anyway. Here’s the great thing about North Park … there are SO many places you can do photos. This was still relatively close to the boat house (where I typically meet people) but still in an area I’d never shot before. And it worked out perfectly. And of course, little man was as adorable as ever. You can see his newborn photos here! He was teething so his fist was jammed into his mouth about 75% of the time … but his big adorable eyes made up for that.:)Oh … and his hat.

Last week I finally got to do these family photos! These guys are friends of mine … in fact the mom watches my girls whenever I am working out for my triathlon (which is in a week!!) and sometimes during sessions too. She’s probably my biggest fan and we finally got this session to happen! Yay! I hope that they were all she was envisioning.

I also made the mistake of bringing my own kids along on this shoot. It was at 7pm and while my father-in-law usually comes over to watch the girls (or sit while they sleep) for night sessions I thought I could bring them along this time. That was a big mistake. They acted like complete lunatics the entire time, going so far as to climb on me when I was lying on the ground getting a shot, and bounce up and down on my back. So for all of you who are embarrassed about your kids and think they aren’t behaving for their pictures … well you should have seen MY kids!:)

They won’t be accompanying me again anytime soon.

Two weeks ago I had a newborn portraits session with this sweet little guy and his absolutely adorable not-so-big sister. When mom and dad scheduled the session they showed me some props that they were wanting to use (I always ask if there’s anything to incorporate). I told them they were, by far, the most unusual props I’ve ever been asked to use. Apparently this isn’t the case in Texas from which they hail. These props are from Texas A&M University and the picture with them was, hands down, the most important to them. We spent at least an hour soothing little man just specifically for this picture. I hope it’s all they wanted!:)

Enjoy.

Last week I took these family photos for this wonderful family, expecting number 3! I remember the first time I photographed them the oldest was maybe 14m old and mom was just expecting her second (not even showing). Now number 3 is on the way! How time does fly. This photo shoot was mostly based on their sweet little girl turning one, with a few family and maternity photos thrown in there.

Aren’t they all so cute?

Enjoy.
