Lauren + Paul = ?

I’m on pins and needles, waiting for The Call that Lauren and Paul’s little one is on his (or her) way. Birth photography is one of my VERY favorite things to do…what could be better than documenting a new little life?

I especially love when the baby is a “surprise”…I get teary every time I’m able to hear that first declaration of “It’s a …”.

So now we wait, and wonder, and guess at what Baby will be and when Baby will decide it’s time to meet the world.

Meet the first two babies of the house…they are eager to meet their little brother or sister!


Noah is 1

Noah has been a delightful baby planner. Sweet, snuggly newborn…big eyed 6 month old…and now a lightning fast toddler. This year has FLOWN by, and I was thrilled to hear that there’s a new little one on the way for this cute family!

This is his “I have a rock and I’m not afraid to use it!” face. Which is better than the “I’m in an alley in Deep Ellum and I’M GOING TO EAT THIS ROCK!” (which happened a split second before…LOL)

I was usurped by the tractor working in the street. I may be fun, but I can’t hold a candle to tractors!


Sneak peek (of a sneak peek)

Since this little mama is at her weekly check-up RIGHT NOW, I thought she could use a little Sugar love. This is our newest Sugar Baby, due any day (and who’s birth I am honored to document). Stay tuned…


Campbell + Davis (+ little brother)

Campbell and Davis are a towheaded pair of brothers that I’ve loved getting to follow along during their annual Sugar session. This year we had the added bonus of their little brother, coming soon!

The Arboretum was absolutely gorgeous…and though we braved a Mommy and Me Monday and HORDES of people, we were lucky enough to snag a few of my favorite spots without too many bystanders (or little ones running through the background). Any time you’re at the Arboretum this is a feat, but at this time of year especially, that is called l-u-c-k-y.


Duke, Violet, Gracelyn + Quentin

HOLY LORD this post is late in going up. This awesome family drove a long way for their session (though I’m already not-so-subtly hinting that their NEXT session take place on their ranch…SWOON (and HINT HINT). We had a BALL in Deep Ellum that morning. It was freezing, Duke (the baby) had taken a nose-dive that morning and bled all over his outfit…shoes were lost and replacements scrounged up, happy Duke was uncharacteristically UNhappy that morning (busted lips will do that to a guy). And beyond ALL that…we had the best light, the cutest kids, the coolest locations and an all around awesome time.

This is, to me, the quintessential family photo…playful, bright, fun, and imperfect. LOVE IT. (want one of my kids!)

Smiling Duke did emerge…and it was worth the wait. What a doll!

The brothers…*slight* age difference, but HUGE sibling love here.

These girls are ADORABLE! So quick to laugh, eager to love, and their expressions are to-die-for!

We joke that sessions end when the tears begin…but Duke started with tears (so we ended when he got happy). Gotta keep it fresh! ;)
