We did this session in a little patch of bluebonnets in their neighborhood – they were so fun and energetic at 8am in the morning! My favorite is the one of them dancing!
She is the first of 5 siblings to leave for college this year and I LOVE that her brothers and sisters came to her session to be part of it! AMAZING does not even begin to describe this senior!
Could this little miss be any more adorable? I spent a beautiful morning with this family in east Austin and then we ended up at a little park that was just beautiful as the morning light poured in and I got to photograph this sweet little gal! The pink shoes and leg warmers were so cute I almost fainted!XO
Have I really not updated my blog since last September? Yikes – add that to the “to do” list! If anyone is still following, I’d be shocked!
This senior session took place on two separate dates and in-between this stunning senior chopped her hair! She is a timeless, classic beauty and could pretty much shave her head and be gorgeous! Good luck, Miss C – you are amazing and I know your family is behind you in all your endeavors. CONGRATULATIONS!!
These photographs are from a gorgeous Friday afternoon earlier this year. Mom hadn’t planned on being in the photos, but I am so glad I convinced her to step into a few because the mother/daughter images are some of my favorites!! Those images remind me that I really need to step into more photos with my own children. So often, I feel like I look tired, or I’m having a bad hair day, or I need to lose weight…the list of reasons why I should not be in photos with my children goes on and on. In reality, I know my children will never look at photos of me 20 years from now and say, “I wish mom had worn a different outfit that day…” I know deep in my heart that the photos I will cherish most are those authentic moments that I share with my kids and my family – thank you to this mother & daughter for reminding me of that! XO
Mama told them to pose this way…when they were all under the age of 10 to keep their hands still so they could get a photo of the 3 every now and then where they weren’t wresting or throwing each other to the ground. Gotta love boys! Here they are, mama’s grown boys and their families! I LOVED spending just 45 minutes with this family to get a few candid shots of them just being themselves. There must be nothing more wonderful in life than to get to see your children grow up to be happy adults. They all live in different cities, but they had some time this summer to all come together under mama’s roof. I feel so comforted at night when my babies are all tucked in, under the same roof and I realize that one day my kids won’t be in the same house with me and what a strange feeling that will be to wonder if they are okay and not be able to just walk on over! Being a photographer really allows me to SEE the beauty of times like this that I got to experience with this family….XO
