Next phase of life...

My sister in law is stunning.  She's almost 8 months pregnant and looks as fabulous as always.  I've taken so many pictures of different major events in her life.  Baptism, engagement, wedding and now maternity.  I can't wait to get my hands on little Hadley once she's born, hope she doesn't get sick of my camera!

I heart faces-back to school

The night before school started I could hardly sleep!  I was all giddy and excited for my kiddos to see their new friends and get back into some sort of routine!  I love that my daughter still lets me pick her first day of school outfit...I know that won't be happening much longer.  I love this photo for SO many reasons, it is just so her.  I love that i was able to capture her crooked smile and little freckles.  For more photos of back to school fun head on over to I heart Faces!

I heart faces-White!

We LOVE shooting bridals, it's one of our favorite things to shoot.  There's just something magical, lovely and fresh about a bride to be.  Kristi was certainly no exception to that.  She was stunning in her vintage white dress and the grounds we were on were perfect.  For more white photos head on over to I heart faces!

So much fun!

After we took our kids for fair photos we had another family ask for them.  We had so much fun doing photos there.  With 3 kids under 4 we knew we were in for a challenge, but the kiddos were champs!  We were able to get some really great pictures of an amazing family!

A night at the fair

We have really been wanting to take some pictures of our own kiddos together.  As soon as I realized the fair was in town I just knew we had to do it there!  Anne and I are secretly hoping our oldest two kids get married so we will be connected forever...=)  The kids had a great time riding rides, eating cotton candy and watching the rodeo.  It was an added bonus that we were able to get some really great photos!

I heart faces-Pet week

My daughter is OBSESSED with horses.  She has a horse room and since we live in Texas we see alot of horses anytime we drive anywhere.  She has convinced me that when she is 16 she doesn't want a car, she wants a horse...or an RV.  There is a horse ranch down the street from us and the horses are SO friendly.  We were able to stop and get some great photos.  I blew this one up big on canvas and it is hanging in her room, one of my favorite pictures to date!  To see more furry friends, head on over to I heart faces!

I heart faces...Let's hear it for the boys!

This week over at I Heart Faces it's all about the boys in our life!   I love seeing my boys with their friends and watching them play.  My best friend also has two boys and we do everything together, I treat her boys as if they were my own.  I have always LOVED this photo.  Nothing about this photo was posed...I just turned and told them to flex and they fell into place!  It's kind of an evolution of man meets Rocky kind of just makes me smile every time I see it!

I heart faces...bright and vivid!

I LOVE bright colors.  When we did this photo shoot it was all about brightly colored tutu's!  I think I love this photo even more because the bright pops so much against the silver background.  For more brightness in your life head on over to I heart faces!

I heart faces...from a distance

There's something I always love about a close up shot, the emotion, the clarity, the detail.  But, there is also something pretty fabulous about a shot from a distance.  It's more about location and the bigger picture.  This is one of my very favorite photos ever.  I took bridals of my stunning sister in law and I nearly died when I found this location.  There is something about the soft feminine look of her and the dress mixed with this big machine that just gets me every time.  If I could go back to this place over and over I would.  To see more photos from a distance head on over to I heart faces!

I heart faces...yellow

When I saw this week's theme I wasn't quite sure which picture to use.  When I was reading the description it said there had to be yellow, because they love how happy yellow makes them feel.  I love this picture of my daughter.  I used more of a golden yellow from the sunshine and let's face just HAVE to smile when you see her here!  For more bright and cheery photos head on over to I heart faces!

The {S} Family

We had a great time the other night with an incredibly fun family.  The kids were so polite-they had the best manners!  Let's face it, there's nothing cuter than a 4 year old saying "Yes m'am".  This family was so photogenic and so easy to photograph.  Thanks for a great time, enjoy your photos!

Soft and Sweet

When I saw the theme for this week I knew I could interpret it different ways.  My mind kept coming back to this photo.  We recently did a shoot with FIFTEEN little girls aged 2-6.  It was crazy and wonderful all at once.  They were all wearing amazingly soft and brightly colored tutu's, and let's face it...nothing is sweeter than a bunch of little girls! So here's my entry complete, with little girls, tut's and hair bows, it doesn't get softer or sweeter than this! For a little more sweetness in your life head on over to I Heart Faces!

It's one of my favorite weeks over at I heart week!  We have the best doggie ever.  You can argue it, but it's true.  Some of you may know that our Tank was hit by a car a couple of years ago, the doctor said it was a miracle that he even survived.  That's when he came to live with us, I think he hung on to protect my kids, he NEVER leaves their side.  He protects them all the time, which makes up for the time he decided to eat an entire box of Nutri-Grain bars...wrapper and all.  Here he is with my Blake, they are the best of buds...this one is totally going on my wall.

Mr. P of one!  We just couldn't get enough of this little guy.  He smiled from the minute we started right until the end, he was such a trooper.  He has the best blue eyes and adorable smile...thanks for letting us capture your cutie!

Slice of Life...I heart faces

One of the major perks of living in Texas is being able to go to the Rodeo.  My brother in law competes in it so it is always so fun to have the whole family out there to enjoy the show.  The theme this week at I heart faces is slice of life.  They want something that is real life and candid.  I can clearly remember this i moment my brother in law came out into the center and our family went nuts...his neighbor (who may just be the CUTEST cowboy ever) was SO focused on just watching him.  No reaction... just stone cold Stockton.  That is why this is one of my favorite pictures, this is our family- wild, crazy and TEXAS baby!  Check out some more real life moments at I heart faces!

To see more fabulous sunflare head on over to I Heart Faces!

Birthday Girl

Now that we have our hands on some fabulous new lighting equipment we just needed the perfect subject. Enter Ava.  She was a total ham, in fact her session will get a few different posts.  Today's photos were capturing her at 1, a total ham.  She was fascinated by the balloons!  Stay tuned for her next part of the session, smash the cake...and she really got into it!
