You Asked, I've Spoken | Music

Totally random post. Many of you have told me how much you like my playlist, whether it be by email, by message, comment, via phone, or in person. It always puts a smile on my face because I love spreading the word about things that move me. And good music moves me. So anyway, here are a couple of links that I think some of you might enjoy:

Black Cab Sessions

Have a great day!

Expecting Baby Brother | Colleyville Maternity Photographer

I got an "emergency" call a few weeks ago from one of my favorite families because they needed to do their maternity session in a jiffy before going in for an early doctor-ordered c-section to bring "Baby Brother" into the world. Luckily, I was free and was able to meet them just two days before he came.

When I say that they are one of my favorite families, I really mean it. They are so much fun to be around and their sweet girl is just amazing. They're the kind of people who inspire you to try to be a better parent. And this isn't because they're both pediatricians, either. Nope, they're just really good, fun, nurturing parents, and the evidence of this just radiates from the whole family.

Next up: you get to meet "Baby Brother" so stay tuned!

Tough Chick | Dallas Professional Head Shots

A few weeks ago, I met up with a beautiful Dallas-area attorney who needed professional head shots for her website. Criminal defense is no joke. Don't you just love when a woman is intelligent, tough, AND gorgeous?? Wowzah!

Love, Lovely, Loved | Las Colinas Newborn Photographer

This is the sweet firstborn of our awesome family pediatrician and her equally fabulous attorney husband (I think that Li'l Miss is gonna be pretty smart, don't you? No pressure!). They welcomed me into their beautiful home a few weeks ago and I got to spend a good amount of time with their precious girl who is a GOOD sleeper, I might add! She didn't even seem to mind all of my man-handling for the sake of "getting the shot."

I love newborns. Babies are just yummy and everybody knows it. But I also love new parents. There is just something about becoming a parent for the first time, isn't there? New parents are endearing. I just love watching them interact with one another and with their little ones when everything is brand new. When even the love is new.

Miss P is the Big 1 | Colleyville Family Photographer

Recently, I met with Miss P and her folks for her 1st birthday portrait session. She'd fallen asleep in the car by the time they'd arrived, so I wondered if she would warm up to me. Well, in no time at all, she was smiling and being adventurous, keeping both of her parents (and me!) on their toes!

What's funny is that at the time of her session, I had no idea that she is the granddaughter of one of my mom's closest church friends! It's a small world, I tell ya.

Anyway, many blessings to you on your first birthday, Miss P!
