Fall family sessions are in full swing and I'm sooo behind in sneak peeks! I had to share this dude tho - so serious but don't let the fool you, he had the best little smile!
I said, "pretend you like each other" and they both looked at me and did this....
Fall families are in full swing! Now pray the rain holds off so we don't have to keep rescheduling. October - we've had enough - seriously.
Mother nature had other plans for our family mini's this weekend! Those that were scheduled for today should have an email from me about our new date - October 30!
Those that missed signing up - there's still time now and slots! Hop on over here and grab one: https://app.iris-works.com/customer/booking/874b102f-5a04-4c8f-9e8c-a18995d3964f
What a difference a few months can make:) Fresh nuggets and sitting nuggets!
I realize I never shared her 10 year pictures either! I can't believe this nugget is 10 years old now!
It's become an annual thing for me and the girl - sunflower sunsets! Burnside never disappoints and tho we hit these late in the season there were still so many pretty one left.
Okay, can we talk about this light! This place is one of my favorites for the warm yummy light that shows up in that last 30 min before sunset. These two were the most adorable people! So in love and excited for baby girl's arrival.
So about last night....
I was wrapping up this album order today and this one stuck out to me. She loves her baby sister so much! All the kisses for baby sister!

While waiting for the fireworks Lia and I took a spin around the demonstration garden at Ida Lee. This is one of my favorite places to shoot sessions!
I can't believe he's a senior now! I was there the day he was born (the day we mailed our wedding invites funny enough). Time flies!
The sky showed up tonite!
I've been back a few weeks but finally got around to editing the photos! Our day at the Taj Mahal was epic (and so so hot!). Funny enough, this was the only time I took out my big camera. I carried it across the world for one day of shooting.
More before and after!
This nugget belongs to my brother and has perfected the photographers child grimmace...hahahaha...
A little before and after edit action.
This little dork stole my old aviators which were missing a lens and popped the other out for a pair of fashionable nerd frames. I actually think they suit her...haha.
This boy...he very rarely lets me photograph him these days. I caught this one at the ice cream shop just by chance. This is 12...some days we're going on 21 and some days we're going on 6:)
I cannot get over this cuteness! This dude was my friend as long as I didn't touch him. Oh, and we used a hanger to make him smile?
Lia and I took advantage of the beautiful light the past few nights and did what we used to always do - don a pretty dress and go play in the sunbeams.
Summer is a beautiful time for family portraits! The evenings are long and the light is so beautiful! It's never to early to schedule!
She was happiest when completely wrapped up and snuggled in!
I still have room for 1 June and 1 July studio newborn if you're a last min type person:) Just message and we'll get you all set up!
This little snugs turned the big O.N.E yesterday! He's such a character. Smiley and silly and has the best faces (and scary smart even at 1...my brother is in for a ride with this one).
Happy Birthday Stellan:)
Y'all, smiley babies are so magical! She had all the smiles for me in this session!
(I still have some June and July studio newborn spots open if you've waited to the last min!)
It never gets old! May the 4th be with you:)
(I have room in June, July and August for newborns! 1 spot each month. Don't wait if you want to get those squishy baby pics in!)
I'm so in love the with colors in this session (and how sweet this little peanut was!)
Check out this little love from my latest in home session! I had to laugh, my previous few newbies were itty bitty so having one that is average size felt huge at first:)
