Mini Session Sneak {Houston Children’s Photographer}

I was so excited about my morning of mini sessions in the Metroplex.  I knew it was going to be a great morning with two sessions of adorable kids and one beautiful and sweet family session. Add to that the most perfect weather and a fun (new to me) location, and the magic is bound to happen.

Now, I really think that all of my clients are special and I love them all.  But we go way back with these guys.  Derek has been best friends with Ryan since the 7th grade.  Ryan married Maggie, and now, 12 years later, they have these 2 beautiful kids.   We are all crazy about each other and hang out every chance we get.  Ryan and Derek are still best friends, and over the years, Maggie has become on of my best friends, too.  We’ve never lived in the same city as them, and really only see them every few months.  But it doesn’t even matter.  We just pick right back up and it’s like no time has even passed.  I treasure our friendship with them so very much.

And I treasure these kids, too.

They are fun and sweet and love each other so much.

And, they are so stinkin’ cute, too.  Maisy is convinced that she and Connor are going to get married someday.  Now, if you ask Connor about it, he isn’t quite as enthusiastic.  But, he did say the other night that they are good friends and he likes to be with her, so yeah, maybe they can get married.  He’s wise…always marry your best friend.

And Weaver…sweet and spunky Weaver.  He has so much energy and always gives me a run for my money.  But I just love him!  I love a boy who is so full of personality that it can’t help but bubble over at any moment.

And one more..I just love how Maisy is looking at Weaver and cracking up.  I have a feeling that’s a pretty typical scene for these two.

Sweetest {Clear Lake Texas Newborn Photographer}

This little guy is extra special, not just because he’s extra cute and extra sweet, but he’s also my nephew.  I took Kathy’s maternity pictures just a few weeks ago and now Jackson is here!  He’s was just 6 days old in these photos.  And I could not believe how alert and active and strong he was already!  I wondered if we would even be able to get him asleep.  He was so alert and busy checking out his surroundings, and then my newborn assistant had to leave (aka my friend Angela who is like the baby whisperer when it comes to getting these little guys to sleep!)  But even if we didn’t get those sleepy shots, at least we got this sweet wide awake one.

But all it took was a little trip outside and he drifted right off to sleep.  I love taking newborns outside if the weather cooperates!  And seeing that we broke a heat record on this day, outside was plenty warm enough for Jackson.  He was little jaundice, so we joked that his session also doubled as his photo therapy time.

I am having the hardest time picking a favorite, but this one is definitely up there!

And I love his sweet face in this one.

He makes women everywhere swoon.  He’s handsome, cuddly, and at just 6 days old knows that carefully selected flowers can add just the right touch.  Girls love receiving flowers, and I’m glad I could be a part of teaching him that important life lesson.

I can’t wait to watch him grow up.  He is so loved.
