iPhone Fun {Clickin Moms Creativity Blog Circle}

This month's Clickin Mom's creativity challenge was to use your camera phone.  I have an iPhone 4 - so I used that to take all of the pictures in this post.

As a professional photographer, I'm always trying to capture those perfect moments - the one you and your family want to remember forever.  I want to walk away from every shoot feeling like my clients will cherish the pictures I give them.  I definitely want to do the best job I possibly can.

Over the last year or so, I have a new found love for taking pictures with my iPhone.  As a mom, sometimes I want to just savor the moments while not always worrying about capturing the perfect picture or lugging around my big camera.  I love it.  I can capture my kids in the everyday moments without the extra pressure I put on myself when I have my big camera out.  My iPhone frees me from the perfection I often strive for with my dSLR.

{Pictures to Practice}

I often use my iPhone just for practice shots - whether it's lighting, locations or whatever.  In the first picture we were on a family trip to Tulsa.  I loved the lighting in the hotel room.  In the second picture, I was in search for a new bridge to use during my photo sessions - so my kids were happy to help me out.  :-)

{Pictures at the Park}
This was just a fun rainy day for us at the park.  I knew I didn't want to take my dSLR but I still wanted to capture them having fun and playing. 

{Pictures on Vacation}
And for those fun, quirky vacation pictures I wanted to share on Instagram, I used my iPhone camera too.  These were taken on our summer trip to Myrtle Beach this year.

Please follow the rest of our circle around to see their take on camera photos.  You can check out my very talented friend Heather's post next.

Red, White and Blue | The R Kids {Frisco TX Childrens Photographer}

Check out the fun Red, White and Blue shoot I got to do recently with two of my favorite two year olds.  We met up at Frisco Heritage Museum and enjoyed a fun patriotic morning.

We started in the wagon in front of the little log cabin.  Here I learned that the twins liked to give each other sweet kisses.  I love this!!  Best Friends Forever!!

Then we brought out the tricycle.  I think we have a natural on our hands.  Isn't she way too cute!!

Of course, what is a red, white, and blue session without the American Flag and some love? 

We finished up with our patriotic little guy. 

I really enjoyed this session!  It was fun to try to capture some patriotic images.  I hope everyone had a fun 4th of July this year with lots of family, fun and fireworks!!  :-)  If you would like some patriotic pictures like this, please email me today

7 Month Milestone | Baby Evie {Frisco TX Baby Photographer}

Check out this absolutely adorable 7 month old I got to spend some time with in  the park last week.  Don't you just want to squeeze her little cheeks?  Talk about cute, cute cute!!

Evie's Mommy is a friend of mine and a very talented photographer.  She was so  sweet to let me take pictures of her little model while our older kids played.  I think I could have sat there all day taking pictures of her.  She was just as sweet and happy as could be.

Thank you Sara for such a fun morning!  :-)


You know I would LOVE to take pictures of your little one too.  Such sweetness!!  Send me an email and let's set up a milestone session for your little boy or girl today.

Our Fun Adventures {Letters to Our Children}

To my wonderful babies:

One of the things I love about being your mom is how I get to see so many new things through your eyes.  I love the excitement you get over the little things that are so new to you.  It's a reminder to me to enjoy the small things - the beautiful flowers, playing in water on a hot day, blowing bubbles, snuggling on the couch.  It reminds me how important it is to laugh and have fun every day and that sometimes it's ok just to be silly. You guys are such a blessing to me in so many ways!!

We have had so many fun adventures.  This is the day we discovered the tunnels.  :-)

Love you guys to pieces!!

Some of my friends in my moms group and I have decided to create a blog circle where we will share monthly letters to our children. In a world where we all get so busy with life, for me it is an opportunity to slow down and hopefully record some of our moments together for them. Please check out my friend Niki's beautiful letter and then follow our circle around until you get back to me.

Head Shot and Model Shoot | Andrea {McKinney TX Business Photography}

Have I told you about the moms group I belong to?  Shortly after I had my kids, I caught the photography bug big time.  About that time one of my friends started an awesome new moms group (Lens Baby) geared towards moms who love photography.   We take turns creating fun play dates for our kids that allow us to take fun pictures of them.  We also support each other in our businesses - including taking head shots and modeling shots for each other.  I love this group. All of the ladies are so creative, so talented, and so sweet.   

This is my friend Andrea.   We met up in downtown McKinney for a quick modeling shoot.  She was such a natural! Doesn't she look beautiful?

I really enjoyed this shoot and would love to do more like it.  If you are looking for head shots for your business, modeling shots or even senior pictures, contact me today and let's get a session on the calendar.  I look forward to setting up a fun and creative session for you.
