40 Years | Colleyville Family Photographer

How awesome is this? A family celebrating their Mom & Dad/Grandma & Grandpa's 40th wedding anniversary with a family portrait memento! It was a fun and lively session with these cute kiddos who had come out for my summertime mini-sessions this year... plus 1! Yes, we also celebrated the addition of a little sister to these two handsome brothers.

There's a fun story that I got to hear during our session and that is of this patriarch's long-lost love -- his '69 Chevelle. I'm sure I'd mess it all up trying to retell it, though, so to cut to the chase... they had this awesome car back when they were first in love, ended up selling it, then recently FOUND the very car after a 12-year search to track it down. It had never been wrecked and the only difference was that a subsequent owner had painted it. So anyway, they are restoring it to its original glory and hopefully (pretty please?) one day I'll get to snap some shots of them sitting in it. Here's the link to a thread all about it: 1969 Chevelle.

Mr. and Mrs. D, congratulations on your 40 years together... may God bless the next 40!

Baby Blues and Freckles, Too | Colleyville Family Photographer

Oh boy, a while ago, I had my lovely session with these folks and because I have been so frazzled with various projects going on, I completely forgot to do their blog post! Gasp! I really try my best to do my post as soon as a session disc is completed just because I want to have my faves for myself on here, too. Tsk tsk. Anyway, we had ourselves a lovely session with these three cuties and their folks. Talk about photogenic!

Baby in a Barrel | Dallas Newborn Photographer

Just about a month ago, I got to meet this sweet little package of sugar. She was yet another newborn who smelled me coming or something because she did not want to sleep! Don't let these photos fool you because it took lots of coaxing by mom and grandma to get Li'l Miss to finally fall into a deep sleep. As soon as she did, however... I swear, it all turned to magic. There's a reason for phrases such as "heaven sent"...

A Morning of Fun with Two Siblings | Dallas Family Photographer

Did I have fun at this session? Yes, indeedy, I did! These two siblings were so ready and willing to do everything I asked and their personalities shined through. I wouldn't be far off the mark if I said that his pipe and her blue shoes were vying to steal the whole show, though. I LOVE it when clients bring fun stuff to their sessions! It makes it so much more personal and FUN. Oh, and Mom made an appearance for a few snaps, too! (I should mention that she has been avidly supporting me since I opened up shop last summer - thanks, D!) Anyway... this goes down as one of my favorite sessions to-date. A and E, you guys rock. Thanks for putting up with my corny jokes!
