A Day in the Life...

You all know I like to take pictures.  :)

I was inspired by a great article in a photographer magazine awhile back, and decided that for one full day... from start to finish (as much as possible), I would photograph my day with the kiddos.  I took all expectations on clarity, composition, etc. off of my photographer-self and just shot.

I am so glad I did.  But I am not going to lie, it was a lot of (extra) work.  But oh-so-rewarding, especially now looking back on it.  And that was only a few months ago!  I can only imagine when they are 16 and 18 one day, these images will be even sweeter for me to look at.

My challenge for you mamas out there... capture a day on camera.  Have that camera in your pocket (or around your neck if it's a DSLR) and capture your day.  All of its sweetness, craziness, chaos, mess, and love.  And then make a little photo-book of it, put it on your book shelf, and melt every time you go through it in the future.  :)

Little Harper: Pint Sized Perfection {Austin Newborn Photographer}

What a little beauty Harper was!  She was six pounds of newborn perfection.

I love newborn photography for so many reasons, and capturing the love that new parents have for their much anticipated baby is near the top of that list.

Enjoy a sneak peek from our time together.  Isn't she a doll?!

We were almost through our session when her mom mentioned that Harper's nursery has a mermaid theme.  So I whipped this out and we just melted at the way the image turned out.  Now her nursery will have this sweet image up on its walls!

To The J Family: Congratulations on your beautiful new addition.  She is perfection!  Thanks for choosing me to capture such sweet moments while she was so tiny.  Looking forward to working with you all again!

Sweet Henry {Austin Newborn and Family Photographer}

Cute as a button.  That is what little Henry was!

I loved getting to work with the W Family again and being their family photographer.  Seems like just yesterday I met them... and now Cooper is a big brother!  Click here for their adorable session from last year at this time.

Enjoy a sneak peek into our time together.

The B Family: What a Joy! {Austin Family Photographer}

I so enjoyed meeting and working with the B Family!  Turns out they live right down the street from me.  Small world!

I'm going to start with this image, because it pretty much sums up our session together.  JOY.  This little man was so much fun to work with, and had three levels of smiles... Regular smile, big smile, and JOY smile/laugh.  I loved it!

Can't you just see the joy in his eyes?  And kuddos to S for picking out such great outfits for their family portrait session!

Here are some more peeks into our morning together.  Enjoy!

Please excuse the low quality image below... but isn't this the sweetest canvas gallery wrap collection?  I bet it looks amazing behind their couch on the living room wall.  I love getting to help families design such sweet and lasting pieces for their homes!

Little Man Harrison {Austin Newborn Photographer}

I loved doing Harrison's newborn portraits!  I think he will challenge his big sister (and my baby Avah) in the "chubby cheeks contest" once he's a bit older.  He was almost ten pounds of newborn perfection when we did his newborn session.

It seems like just yesterday we were doing little A's cake smash session for her first birthday.  (Click here for all that sweetness!)  And now here she is... a big sister!
Harrison was such a strong little guy...  Definitely the strongest grip of any baby I've ever worked with.  He might just be a football player one day!
