The preschool age is the one of my favorite ages to photograph. Their expressions are natural, honest, and almost edible. Makes me want to have just *one*more*baby!
A wonderful teacher friend of mine contacted me regarding her daughter’s recent engagement. I was honored. Without mentioning any names…I’m wondering if anyone will figure out which teacher friend of mine contacted me…she looks just like her momma! Beautiful inside and out. I couldn’t be happier for these two! The day of our shoot it was the ONLY cold and abnormally windy day in Austin’s mild winter. They were troopers. Here are my favorites:
This little angel is so beautiful inside and out! I love how she could care less about her outward appearance. Her beauty is real, pure, & completely oblivious to her. Van Morrison knew how special ‘brown eyed girls’ are….I’m certain I sang that very song with the band at Crossroads (during my good ole days at Stephen F. Austin). Oops…random trip down memory lane.
Here are my favorites of this brown-eyed girl:
This three year old is comprised of joy, fearlessness, and shear raw energy. His cheeky smile is infectious. If you’re having a bad day this is your man!
His big sister has some sweet cheeks as well. Her inquisitive nature, positive personality, and love-filled smile will warm your heart instantly.
These two together is a fun filled portrait session! Here are a few of my favorites from our time together:
Senior portraits are a big farewell to high school. Bittersweet time in one’s life. The senior is excited for what’s to come. The parent is swallowing hard reflecting on all of the milestones we counted, marked on the walls, & took photos of. The future is so exciting, but at the same time turning the page to the next chapter can be difficult when we enjoy the view of the current page. Photographing this senior all I kept thinking about was my babies’ senior portraits. What will we be laughing about to get that perfect smile that chokes me up every time? How tall will they be? Will there be certain items they HAVE TO include in their portraits? So many questions when I know I need to embrace every moment today….before tomorrow arrives.
Here are a few of my favorites.
Central Park is picture perfect. Everywhere you look there’s beauty: bridges/tunnels, ‘Imagine’ tribute to John Lennon, Bethesda Terrace & Fountain, Statues like: Alice in Wonderland & Bolt, Tavern on the Green…you could literally spend a few days enjoying the park. Spring & Fall have got to be the best times ever in New York City…wait what about the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas tree? I MUST SEE EVERY SEASON IN NEW YORK CITY. Thank you Joyce for introducing me to this wonderful city!
Yes, we did a bus tour of the city….I highly recommend it for getting a great night view of the city lights. My first taste of the city was breathtaking! We got off of our plane, unloaded our luggage at our hotel & hit the streets. First week in June & it was chilly at night! Here are a few of our adventures from: The Brooklyn Tabernacle Where I sat next to a regular attendee ‘Catherine.’ She reminded me so much of my grandma, Evelyn. We hugged good-bye. The ‘greeter’ at Tiffany’s was TO DIE FOR! His eyes were Tiffany’s blue. Times Square’s ‘Naked Cowoby’ nothankyouverymuch. Scrumptious food from Carmine’s….And much, much more….
The photo of me…sporting my Yankees hat (much love to the Yankees) & my ‘Live with Kelly & Michael’ t-shirt….I’m wearing an adult’s medium…totally looks like a 2T…<oy>
My kids tend to struggle with math…this web site has been so great for them to practice over the summer!!
