Yellow in the tall grass.

Yellow in the wildflowers.

Yellow in Roxie’s dress blowing in the wind.

Yellow from the sun smiling down on these cute kids.

Summer in Texas is quite perfect.

I am excited to begin a new chapter in my photography!! When we moved to our new house is Austin I was looking for a specific house.. one with a bedroom downstairs. Not to escape the 2am bad dream come get in my bed visits, not to have a place for visiting family but to have somewhere to keep our homeschooling stuff. (there is a lot of STUFF that comes with homeschooling) This next year our family has the awesome opportunity to attend a new classical academy which is opening in our area, which means I get that WHOLE glorious room to house my photography equipment! Studio lighting is something I dabbled with as I’ve shot weddings, taking lighting along with me to shoots, but now having a room totally dedicated to studio work makes me a happy girl!

Here’s the direction I’m going with studio sessions:

I LOVE children sessions with neutrals and textures to make the baby the main focus :)) Can’t wait to show you more!

Gwen amazes me with her determination. She is either determined to be the sweetest and my favorite child… OR…well.

She’s determined.

Maybe it’s payback for introducing her to the big sister roll at 19 months. I remember I was so excited to leave the hospital to see my Gwenny. When I got home my Gwenny was gone. Her determined counterpart had taken the main stage.

My momma heartstrings NEEDED a picture of her in her kooky turkey hat. If not simply to add to the amazing pictures for her wedding video.

Today Gwen was determined to be a turkey.

How appropriate.

I know later in life I’ll just laugh and miss those chubby sassy cheeks. Right?!

Know what happens when you homeschool and it has been rainy all day? You take your kids out to the park with the intent that they will come home with an inch of mud on the bottom of their boots.


They exceeded my expectations.

At least they got their energy out and had so much fun! We can scrape boots later.
