Costume Contest 2010

I loved photographing so many adorable costumes this year.  My purple kangaroo and pirate aren't in the bunch, but I will be sharing pictures soon.  My incredible mom always makes them the best costumes!  I am sure that all my mini session participants would love your vote.  Please head on over to my FaceBook page and "like" your favorite!

Pink... | i heart faces | McKinney Frisco Allen Portrait Photographer

Being the mother of two girls, I love this weeks theme.  I have a lot of pink options, but since I am so behind on my blogging, I decided to post a picture from one of this past weekend's sessions.  This little girl had the most fabulous curly dark hair and her bedroom was full of pink...imagine that!  I almost used a sweet picture of her sitting on the bed surrounded by all the pinkness, but I couldn't resist sharing this one.  She just loved being allowed to do something she normally isn't!

This week's theme is close to my heart for another reason, as well.  I am so thankful that my grandmother won her battle with breast cancer.  She is strong.  She is a fighter.  She has taught me so much in my life.  I love you, Grandma!

Fall... | North Dallas TX Child and Family Photographer

This family met me at the arboretum a few weeks ago and it was a beautiful day.  It was great getting to see this beautiful little one again. Time goes so quickly.  It seems like only yesterday I met Miss K for the first time at her 6 month session.  Her first birthday session will be here before we know it!  Have I mentioned how much I love watching these babies grow during their first year?

M & M Turn One! | Mckinney Frisco TX Baby 1st Birthday Twin Photographer

I have so many sessions to blog.  I can't believe I have let myself get so far behind, but I just haven't been able to squeeze everything in. 

The morning we scheduled this session turned out to be rather cold and dreary.  Miss M's mood seemed to mimic the weather, but we still went away with some great images.  We did meet back up a couple of days later to get some more "smily" shots.  Of course, the family picture where both twins are upset and mom and dad look like they have had enough is still my favorite shot...maybe of the year.  Nicole was actually just brushing the hair out of her face, but the click of the camera shows it in an entirely different light!

Precious... Dallas TX Newborn Photographer

Home newborn sessions are always a lot of fun.  It gives me the opportunity to get a feel for my client's personality.  It is also a little more relaxing for the new mom and dad.  Newborn sessions tend to drag on for dads, but having a football game to entertain definitely didn't hurt the situation!  Thanks, you two, for letting me spend the afternoon at your house.  I know this isn't exactly a sneak peek, since your gallery is already posted, but she was just too precious not to share. :)
