2 Month Milestone | Baby Amberlynn {Gunter TX Newborn Photographer}

Look who came to visit me last week.  This is my niece Amberlynn.  Isn't she a whole lot of cuteness?  It's hard to believe she's already 2 months old. 

We had such a good time.  We talked and we played....and then she fell asleep.  So sweet!  I could definitely snuggle her all day long.  In fact my kids keep telling me how much they love her and miss their cousin already.  We'll definitely have to get in some more snuggles soon.  ;-)

If you want to capture some sweet milestone moments like this, please email me today.  I would love to meet you and your little one too.

Let them be Little {Letters to Our Children}

A letter to my children:

As I've been writing these letters to you guys I have been trying to decide what you guys would want to remember.  So I thought this month I would tell you what our daily lives look like now that you are four.

I'll start with our weeks.  During a typical week we have a standing art class and Chick-fila lunch play date day.  I love these days.  You guys seem to enjoy the crafts so much this year.  Then we follow up with a Chick-fila lunch where you guys almost always meet new friends.  I love to see you guys interact with new kids and learn about friendships.  Throughout the rest of the week, we try to work in at least one play date with friends and a little library time when we can.

Because we have had such a cold winter this year, we have also had a lot of at home time.  What do you guys do at home?  PLAY!  Many afternoons you go to your rooms and spend time pretending with your toys or you come to the dining room table and play Legos or with play dough, draw pictures, or practice cutting paper. 

One of my favorite things to do with you when we are at home is cook.  We have perfected chocolate chip cookies, banana nut muffins, and Rice Krispy treats.  ;-)

(Oh and one thing to mention about this have both started trying more and more new foods.  You may not like it all but you have been a lot more open to trying new stuff which Daddy and I love!)

Some of your favorite toys right now:  E you love makeup, jewelry, and your stuffed animals.  N you love anything about Angry Birds and Star Wars.

Some of your favorite movies:  E you love Disney's Frozen and all Barbie movies.  N you love the Lego Move and the new Pixar Planes movies.

Some of your favorite cartoons:  Peppa Pig, Julius, Wallykazam, Paw Patrol

Some of your favorite books:  E you love Pinkalicious and Disney Princess books.  N you love any Star Wars or Super Hero books.  (You often ask the librarian to help you find more.)  You both love Mo Willems books - especially the Elephant and Pig ones.

As things are warming up, we're enjoying playing outside more and more too.  You guys love to pick flowers, going to feed the horses, playing outside on your play house, going to "The Beach" in Allen or pretty much any park, and helping Daddy with anything outside.

I am loving our four year old days!  Love you guys always!


(These pictures were taken on a day that we went to the Beach in Allen.  They have a really cool blue wall next to some nearby fountains.  I asked you guys to dance because I wanted to capture you having a good time and just being little.)

I am participating in a blog circle with a great group of moms who are writing letters to their children as well.  We're doing it together as a way of supporting each other and as a reminder to keep writing when life gets so busy.  I'm so glad to be a part of such a great group of ladies.  You can follow our circle with my friend Staci's letter to her children next.

Newborn | 7 Day Old Sweet Baby Girl {Celina, TX Newborn Photographer}

Look at the beautiful little girl I got to spend some time with last week.  She's 7 days new here and so sweet!  Couldn't you just snuggle her up all day long?


This beauty is definitely so blessed too.  She has an amazing family that loves her so much.  I loved these sweet moments with Mom, Dad and her awesome big sister. 

Oh those sweet toes!  Mom and Dad had a similar picture of big sister when she was itty we couldn't resist getting one for little sister too.  :-)

I really enjoyed my time with this sweet family.  Thank you guys so much for letting me take newborn pictures for you!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
After so much cuteness, I'm excited to book  my next newborn session.  Email me today if you are pregnant or have just had a baby.  Let's get some beautiful pictures for you.  If you know someone who is pregnant or just had a baby, please pass my information on to them.  Thanks everyone!

Smash Cake Session | Piper {Frisco, TX Children Photography}

Look who turned one!  I met the sweetest little girl and her awesome big brothers a couple of weekends ago at the Frisco Heritage Museum.  We met up to celebrate Piper's first birthday with a photo session and a smash cake.

Ok, first I have to tell you Piper has some amazing big brothers.  You can just tell they will be protecting her as she gets older.  She's definitely a very lucky little girl to have them around. 

Second thing and kind of random...I can't get the song from the Lego movie out of my head.  We talked about seeing that movie and the song when we were at the shoot and now every time I see their pictures, I think "Everything is Awesome!" :-)

Isn't she just adorable?  She was so smiley and so happy for these pictures.  Just way too cute!  She was amazing throughout the whole thing.  Although as you will see next, the cake was not her favorite part.  It got her cute dress all messy which honestly kind of made her a little upset...can't say that I blame her. ;-)  But she's even cute when she's crying so we ended up with one year photo session success.  Yay!  :-)

Happy first birthday Piper!  I am so glad I got to meet you and your family.  I'm looking forward to more chances to watch you grow.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I love smash cake sessions!  If your little one is turning one or has just turned one, contact me and let's capture some sweet one year pictures for you.

Smile {An I Heart Faces Challenge}


"Smile - An I Heart Faces Challenge"

This month's I Heart Face's Challenge is "Smile".  When I saw this theme, I immediately thought of this Mommy and her little girl.  I had asked them to hug each other for me and it led to such a fun, contagious laughing kind of moment.  I just loved it!


You can check out more "Smile" pictures on the I Heart Faces website.
