{Young Ladies}

I had a great time photographing this family. As you can see... this is a family with all {beautiful} girls. They were all so pleasant. In my own life, there are moments in time (okay, everyday) when I look at my girls and I think "OMG, all of this emotion... and this is without any hormones!" As I watched these young ladies, they were so enjoyable to be around! I am encouraged. I know their mom is probably rolling her eyes reading this! Isn't it so true that children in general give everyone else their best side? For us moms... we seem to get the brunt. While I know I don't see what happens behind the scenes, at the very least I can say that it is possible to get three older girls to behave in public! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Close To My Heart

Sooo... here is a little bit of my story. It is Mr. Jack who launched me into the world of photography. This little guy was born dangerously premature. His mom {one of my closest friends} still couldn't drive, so I took her to the hospital to visit him. It was then that I {insisted} on taking pictures of him in the ICU. The pictures include a shot of his fist... adjacent to his tiny newborn tag on his clothes. The tag was actually larger than his hand! Jack eventually made it home. Weeks later, I got a phone call from his mom that went something like "I don't care if you want to... your coming over and taking his pictures!" ~smile~ So we had a sheet, a camera and a baby... and somehow, the actual shots (amazingly) turned out to be incredible. Before the week was over, she had several friends calling me to book shoots! I quiet literally went out to buy a decent camera to photograph them.

So, pardon the one million pictures blogged below...this family is extremely close to my heart!

...Since Birth!

I have photographed these two since birth! They are too cute. I couldn't help but include this first shot because I LOVE IT! It completely shows their interaction. Miss "P" is not amused and Mr. "H" couldn't think it was any funnier! Doesn't that just sum up the sibling relationship? I know it does for the 3 kids that reside at my house! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Baby Blues

Could you just fall in {love} with these baby blues? Little man is so cute and so easy to work with. He truly makes my job a pleasure! We found this really cool old building on my trip back to Texas. I saw that it had a really great color of blue splashed on it and I knew it was a match made in heaven! Thanks for letting me photograph little man once again!
