Beautiful Family on a Beautiful Fall Day

Mom did a perfect, perfect job coordinating outfits for her group and their family photo session in Keller. The clothing colors went really well together and with their coloring (beautiful redheads!) and the fall foliage. I couldn't have asked for a better wardrobe! I was thrilled to see the little redhead, middle child...he was a doll with huge eyes. His older brother informed me that he had big eyes too...he was so cute with his little braces on. The baby was just sweetnatured and went along with all the photography poses and ideas but when we did the family tickle fight was the only time she wasn't so sure about what was going on. I guess her family doesn't usually break out in tickle fights at home! So, as usual, I'm showing one in black and white but decided to grace y'all with a color image too...I do them, I just have a natural preference for black and white portraits...what can I say?

Unique Unique Design - Wow!

My sister has come across some great people and finds in her antiquing trips...and I was commissioned to photograph a home show (like Roundtop in a home...). I loved everything Marcie had (she's in my links list...please go check her blog out as well). She has such an awesome eye and finds the most wonderful stuff. She does a couple of home shows a year and its a madhouse! I'll let the images speak for themselves...but if you want to have early dibs then you need to get signed up for her newsletter and visit her blog!

Baby, It's Cold Outside! {Denton photographers}

Denton photography of child in downtown urban area
She's too young to know that song, but it sure was going thru my head last Saturday during our photography session in Denton. Miss J was such a trooper and didn't complain about the cold...but her little pink nose gave it away. We had this portrait session in downtown Denton around the was so nice having a change of scenery. The only downside is the cool ice cream shop wasn't open yet, and well, it might have been a tad cold (44 degrees) for that to sound appealing!

We're Back! {Keller family Photographers}

Keller Texas family portratit photography photo of fun family tickle session outdoors in park
I loved photographing this Keller Texas family last year, they were so fun; I was glad to hear back from them again this year, needing another portrait session. The kids are just too cute for words. Little miss there can give me a run for my money in the talking department! She is full of stories and just sharing her view on life in general. Regular readers of this blog might remember, brother had just lost his two front teeth last year - too cute! He has his new teeth in this are so cute when they first come in, they're so grown up looking. It's wonderful that these parents are documenting all the fun stages of growing up for their children to look back on. They're a beautiful family and I absolutely love photographing them. Don't you love this family tickle picture...I like to do those at the end and get the kids all wound up and then they go home with mom and dad! I'm sure they're thanking me all the way home....ha ha.

Little Man M

Southlake photography portrait of child
He is 3 and he is a delight. He had me laughing throughout the session with his cute expressions and just being a boy. You can tell he is the apple of Mom and Dad's eyes...I love doing family sessions where the love is so obvious. He did enjoy my toot machine, I haven't met a boy of any age yet that doesn't!

Meet the "M" Family

This great Trophy Club family was referred by my friend Amy from Southlake...she used to babysit the kids when they were little bitty kids. We did this session in Grapevine on a beautiful fall day. Mom and Dad had the two olders girls then the boy/girl twins were a surprise 14 years ago....all in all a very fun, easygoing family. I love this casual action shot of the kids pushing mom and dad on the swing. We got the more posed ones too, but these real moments shots always seem to make the blog cut don't they ha ha.

I give the family a big thank you for being patient on their gallery...fall is always so busy and there are just not enough hours in the day!

I Need An Artist!

I have a very special request for something dear to my heart. The last time my husband and I kept our grandbaby (2 days before he went into the hospital), she was sick with a cold so she stayed with us all day instead of daycare. My husband sat on the couch holding her in his lap reading to her from her favorite Elmo book. Why I didn't snap a picture of it I don't know and am kicking myself now. I can still see the picture so clearly in my head. I would love to find an artist who does charcoal or pastel drawings to put that memory on paper for me. I have an awesome older brother who is an artist but unfortunately he is one busy, busy man so I don't want to bother him with this request, he's got more plates in the air than anyone I know!

So if you are an artist or know of someone who is, I would love to talk to you/them about hiring them for this project! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Here's a recent portrait of my friend Amy and her family from Keller...they came out to the park a few weeks back for some quick images for their 2008 Christmas cards. This isn't the picture she chose but its my favorite so just did one up for the blog. That'll teach her next time to pick my favorite ha ha! If you want to see the holiday card choices available this year you can see them here and the code to view is 2008cards.

Time is running out for Christmas photo sessions and holiday card orders so don't miss out!

The lovely "S" Family

Here's one of my wonderful, repeat families from Southlake. She recently celebrated a birthday (see birthday blog below). And the week following that party we met up at the park to do their holiday portraits. I've been photographing this family for the last four years or so. Couldn't ask for nicer people! And doesn't dad look like Matt Damon...not a bad thing at all! He did admit he hears that quite often. I get a chuckle out of how little M (with darker hair/older girl) looks so much like Dad and C with white blonde hair is her mother all over again. They really redistributed their dna evenly!
