Road Trip!

I’ve been taking pictures of this family for quite some time now. I’ve only missed one major event and that’s because we had our babies one day apart. This time, I traveled to Midland to celebrate this little guy turning one. You would never believe he’s actually a day younger than my daughter. He’s about twice her size.

Look at those blue eyes!

I love how he’s the only one looking at me.

And his sister…oh my! Beautiful.

I’m in love with the scroll door behind them.

For making the trip to Midland, Ashley rounded up another willing family to let me capture.

They brought along their pup for a few pics. Cute thing.

After about a thousand times of me saying, “big smiles!”, the girls wanted to know if we could take some serious pictures. Uh, yes! Love it!

 Speaking of girls, are they not the most gorgeous things you’ve ever seen?!

Thanks for making it a fun trip for me, guys!

Logan & Chely ~ engaged!

 There’s nothing I love more than photographing an engaged couple that laughs their way through their session. These two were so smiley and cute and just so much fun! We had beautiful morning light for their session and it took me an eternity to choose which ones to edit! That’s a problem I love having! :)

G & G

 Oh, my word, these girls are precious! I photographed them for the first time when they were about 4 months old and I was smitten instantly. And I just fall a little harder every time I photograph them. These pictures are for their first birthday… Sooo cute!

Kristina and Danny - Engaged!

What a fun, sweet, in love couple Kristina and Danny are! We had so much fun capturing this exciting time in their lives in a world that finally has some green in it! There was some crazy wind when we started, but by the time we were at our last location, we couldn’t have asked for a better evening for photographs. Best wishes, you guys!

Mr. Three Years Old

 I have photographed this handsome little guy since his first birthday. We go way back. We’re pals. Buddies.

He’s into trains right now, so the Santa Fe Depot seemed to be the logical location. Which worked out since practically every area in San Angelo is pretty dead and ugly right now. I’m ready for spring!

We climbed all over the trains and tracks and got quite a few cute ones to commemorate his third birthday!

and now the whole family...

 The day after I did the warm and cozy, but cold and windy engagement shoot, I photographed the whole family. Everyone was in town for the holidays and it just worked out. Teresa is the secretary at my school and I loved getting to see her with her sons and husband and soon to be daughter in law. She was just giddy to have all of them home!

Miss Abby

 Miss Abby is my niece.

And she’s quite adorable.

Quite.

We had a quick little session with her over the holidays because her 2nd birthday is right around the corner. Last year, I did her one year session when she had just learned to walk. This year’s shoot was a bit different than the last. She’s quite fast, this Abby. But, oh, so very sweet and cute and absolutely bubbling over with personality.

A warm and cozy shoot on a cold and windy day

 These are just a select few from a shoot I did yesterday of a very fun and very beautiful and very much in love couple. We very  much froze while taking these very adorable shots.

I teach writing and tell my students to never use the word very. I’m rebelling against myself.

Upload from December 23, 2011

I adore this. With all my heart.

Upload from December 23, 2011

The cold and wind definitely kept them snuggly.

What Happens when your Best Friend's Son turns 2

You may remember when I posted about my best friend’s son turning one.

Well, impossibly, Little MD is turning 2. And this is what happens when your best friend’s son turns 2:

You are certain his eyes are the most beautiful you’ve seen. Just as they were a year ago.

Upload from August 08, 2011

His indesribably sweet personality melts you into a puddle.

Upload from August 08, 2011

You know that watching this little boy grow up will be truly special because you’ve realized not only is your best friend the insanely wonderful friend you always knew she was, but now you know she’s that good a mom too.

Upload from August 08, 2011

You can’t wait to share another year of milestones and accomplishments and frustrations with not just another mom, but your best friend.

Upload from August 08, 2011

His grin is one of the sweetest in the world. Only your own children can really compete.

Upload from August 08, 2011

and as always, you adore his wispy hair.

Upload from August 08, 2011

Basically, when your best friend has a baby and when that baby turns 2, you just love him. Like a crazy lot.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Michael David. Aunt Jenny loves you so! Upload from August 08, 2011
