Lens Baby Project 52 for December

I can't believe our Lens Baby project 52 photography challenges are already coming to an end.  This year had definitely flown by.  Here are my final 4 images for our challenges.

{Week 49: "Someone I Love"}
This has become one of my favorite pictures...mainly because I have so few of my two looking at me at the same time and smiling into the camera.  A friend was standing behind me and got their attention and I was so excited to capture this moment.  :-)

{Week 50: "Decorated"}
This was more of an impromptu photo shoot.  The kids and I had a great time this particular morning doing an inside Christmas shoot. 

{Week 51: "Sweet"}
The kids and I just had a fun time with this challenge.  :-)

{Week 52:  "A Favorite"}
Being the week of Christmas and all, this challenge has become a "favorite" challenge where I have chosen one of my favorites from a session I'm currently working on.  Crazy time of year for sure...but beautiful family.  :-)

I am very happy that I participated in a Project 52 this year.  For anyone considering doing one for next year, I would highly recommend it.  It was a great creative outlet for me.  And while I admit there were many weeks that I just chose my favorite picture of the week because the week had gotten away from me, there were definitely weeks that inspired me.  Plus it got me shooting consistently every week with a focus which was what I needed to help me grow I think.

Here is my year in review if you would like to see it.  :-)

Merry Christmas from Carrie Saindon Photography

I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!! 

One of the moms from my mom's group set up this beautiful Christmas scene at the Frisco Heritage Museum for all of us. Thanks Andrea!! 

A few extra of my little guy.  :-)

She really wasn't into pictures at the Heritage Musuem so she decided to let Mommy take some pictures of her once we got home.  :-)

Our Christmas Hug {McKinney and Frisco Area Christmas Photography}

I have been so blessed this year with my photography business.  I have loved being able to do so many fun sessions with such amazing people.  It has kept me busy for sure.  So now that things have slowed down a little for the holidays, I decided to set up a fun Christmas mini session with two of my favorite little subjects.  :-) 
Three year olds are almost always so energetic that you can't really pose them for specific pictures, you just have to capture their personalities.  And I have to say I absolutely love these little personalities and couldn't have hoped for our session to come out any better.  I hardly ever get a picture with both of them smiling and looking at me anymore and to have them hugging, smiling and looking all in one picture is definitely an early Christmas gift for me.   This Momma is definitely a happy Momma.  And of course they were having such a great time with it because they knew every hug was a good excuse to start wrestling.  ;-)
Maybe wishful thinking but I  would love to make this one of our yearly Christmas traditions.  Here is our Christmas hug from last year.   Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you guys get lots of Christmas hugs this year!!

I posted this photo of our Christmas hug in the Clickin Moms forums - such a great forum of photographers.  And I am so honored that they featured it along with so many other great Christmas traditions on their blog.  You can check out all of the great traditions on their blog post here -

Celebrating Friendship {McKinney and Frisco, TX Area Family Photographer}

I was so excited to be able to take family pictures for my college roommate and her family this year.  We have known each other so long.  We went to college together, were a part of each others weddings and have watched as we both have had children and as they grow.  It's amazing to think about how much has changed over the years - definitely a great trip down memory lane for me. 
I hope you guys like your pictures.  And thanks for letting me be a part of it all this year.  :-)

LensBaby Project 52 for November

It's hard to believe that we have done 11 months of weekly challenges already.  This year has gone by so quick.  I have loved having the extra motivation to get out there and shoot and try to challenge myself as a photographer.  Here are my November pictures.

{Week 44: "Friendship"}
I love how this brother and sister love each other.  Such sweetness!

{Week 45: "Family"}
Isn't this a beautiful family? 

{Week 46: "Favorite"}
I loved this sweet moment between mom and daughter.

{Week 47:  "Fall"}
These boys were so adventuresome!  I loved watching them.

Announcing a Black Friday through Cyber Monday Sale from Carrie Saindon Photography

I'm so excited to be a part of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday experience this year!! 

Can you believe it's already time to start thinking about the perfect gifts for everyone on your shopping list?  If you are like me, you think to yourself what can I get for those people that pretty much already have everything they want or need.  How about the gift of professional photography?  Can you imagine how excited your mom, wife, grandma, etc would be to get beautiful family pictures for Christmas?

So this year, I want to offer you two options:

  1. $10 OFF coupon -  Book a session with me between Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I will give you a coupon for $10 off your entire session price. 
    • The session cost is not due until the time of the actual session.
    • I will honor 2012 prices through the end of 2013 for any session booked through this deal .
    • All you have to do is pick a session type and time.
    • I will send you a coupon for the session.

      2.  $10 ADDED to all Gift Certificates - Buy a gift certificate for any session and get an extra $10 added to your gift certificate value. 
    • Example: If you want to book a full session that costs $100, just pay $90. I will add $10 to the total amount of your gift certificate for a total of $100.00.
    • Once I receive payment, I will send you a gift certificate that you can wrap up for under the tree.
    • No refunds will be given for gift certificates, but they can be transferred if needed.
    • You do not have to pick a date at this time but we will get you on the calendar ASAP.
    • I will honor 2012 prices through the end of 2013 for any gift certificates booked through this deal.

Tis the Season {McKinney and Frisco Area Family Photography}

I love this time of year!  Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away and Christmas is knocking on the door.  I love the excitement and traditions that go along with it all.  It also reminds me of all the things I have to be thankful for.  One of the things I'm very thankful for this year is the opportunity to start my own photography business while getting to stay at home with my babies (who will tell you they are not babies any more but big kids).  Where has all the time gone???
I am also very thankful for my clients - the people who have had enough confidence in me to take their family pictures for them.  This sweet family has been awesome!!  They have given me several opportunities to take photos for them and I have loved every minute of it.  Those babies are so adorable and growing so fast!!  I love watching them as they grow and seeing those little personalities blossom with smiles.  Thank you guys for letting me be a part of it all!!
I couldn't decide on my favorites so definitely some picture overload going on.  :-)  Here are some of my favorites from their Christmas session.  And Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

What a Beautiful Family!! {McKinney and Frisco Area Family Photographer}

Last week I got to do another fun Christmas mini-session with a family I met from my twin moms group.  It's always so much fun for me to see how much the kids have grown.  It doesn't seem that long ago that the two little boys were playing in my living room.  I had the moms over for a Christmas-themed photo play date and we were able to fit both of the little guys in a small basket for a they sure are growing up!!  :-)

It was fun to see how much they had grown and also fun to see them with their older brother. When I think of little boys, I think of digging in the dirt, climbing trees, and making the whole outside world their own adventure.  These boys were awesome - they did it all and posed for some cuteness too!  Here are some of my favorites from our session.  And please forgive the picture overload again - I have such a hard time deciding on my favorites.  :-)
