Little Miss H | Dallas Children's Photographer

Oh my goodness, I am so unbelievably behind on my blog posts, it's ridiculous. Must make a big mental note to allot more time for everything nearing next Christmas!

Anyway, this darling, cheeky little girl came to be my friend back at the end of October. Her mom had been one of the first people to leave me a thoughtful and encouraging comment on this blog way before we even met and I will honestly never forget how it made me feel.

Miss H's story is amazing. Her journey to c
ome home began years before she was even born. Her loving parents brought her home from Taiwan this past spring, you see, after more years and red tape than anyone should have to endure to become parents. I can tell you firsthand... this spunky little girl and her mom are a match made in heaven. They were simply meant to be. I'm just so happy to have been asked to capture a tiny moment in this blessed baby's life.

If you would like to learn more about their story, please check out their blog:

2009 Holiday Mini-Sessions {My Favorites} | Dallas Family Photographer

A couple of weekends ago, I held my first full day of mini-sessions for the holidays! Ten families participated throughout the day in Grapevine and I mean to tell you that I had all shapes, sizes, and flavors of lovely people come out. It was such a treat and I hope that they will all be able to share the photos I captured of them with their loved ones this season.

I have gone through and chosen one of my personal favorites from each of the ten 20-minute sessions from that day. This was not an easy task, I'll have you know. The other still lifes scattered in between are ones that I took one morning at The Red Shed antiques store in Grapevine just for fun.

Many blessings, everyone!
