Norah Caroline's 1 Year Portraits

Thursday, July 24, 2014
Oh how I love when a session goes exactly as I envision! That happens not so often with my own kids since all photographer's children suffer from "PCS" (photographer child syndrome).

Thankfully, Norah isn't walking yet so she can't quite run away. And we placed her mostly on top of things so she was less likely to crawl away.

I put this all together in the last month, with a very specific vision in my head, scouring etsy shops and IG boutiques looking for the perfect dress. I wanted a very similar feel to Claire's 1 Year Session without using the exact same dress.

I found the dress at Over The Loom (same place Claire's 2nd Year Session dress came from), and the floral crown was custom made by lizziluluand co on etsy/IG. I seriously gasped when the floral crown came. It was exactly what I had hoped and coordinated perfectly. Cowboy boots were from Target and didn't fit the chunky monkey baby feet, but should in a little while. Moccasins were a "right place at the right time" awesome find on a local facebook garage sale site for $12. never worn. sometimes I get lucky!

Add one awesome friend/auntie Ashley to help keep Norah on the chair, and I give you these. These, along with Henry's five year posted the other day are easily the best work I've ever done of my own kids. I can't wait to order a canvas of one of these!

And to our Norah Caroline. You were quite the surprise to find out on the same day we accepted an offer to sell our first home. We were leaving the state just a few weeks after I found out I was pregnant. It was a hot Texas summer being 7, 8 and 9 months pregnant smack dab in the middle, but it was all worth it.

You complete our family so perfectly. You are the happiest baby. We love your squeals, your little nose scrunches, and all your happy shrieks when you see any one of us. Henry and Claire adore and love you and so do daddy and I.

 More on you later. For now, enjoy the session and our beautiful baby girl :)

Henry's Five Year Session

Tuesday, July 22, 2014
So if you follow me on facebook, you saw that Henry and I had a little sunrise date on Sunday morning.

With business being crazy busy and trying to fit everything in before their big party day this weekend, doing Henry's session at sunrise was a must. Friday and Saturday night's were cloudy and I pretty much refuse to shoot in anything but gorgeous sunlight now.

I prepped him the night before that he was going to get up early (the kid LOVES getting up "early"), and that after we finished we'd have a donut date. It was a win for both of us, lol!

He hammed it up at the 4 year session and is always wanting to "pose" for me lately, so I knew he'd do awesome.

And he did.

I think the very first one I posted on fb will be his new canvas on our big gallery wall, but I love them all!


Hard to believe this handsome little guy is five. We've overcome so much in the past year and a half and he's now just one month shy of kindergarten. 5 years ago when I gave birth to a summer baby, I knew I wanted to send him as a "young" kindergartner and that hasn't changed. He is so ready both academically and socially (finally!). He's reading/spelling, counts to 200, etc etc. I can't wait to see how he blossoms this coming school year. He is intuitive, thoughtful, and loving to each and every one of his family members. Though him and Claire may argue and fight, the other half of the time they are the best little buddies and ask for each other when they are sad. He's stubborn at times, and really, really relentless a lot of the time. We are currently working on only needing to ask/request something once and to give mommy and daddy time to respond. He loves his "snuggles", his "buddies", Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, playdough, coloring, swimming, the ipad, frozen yogurt, hot dogs & fruit snacks. He is simply the best. Mommy and daddy love you. Happy 5th birthday Henry.

The camera suddenly gets a lot heavier when you hand it off to 4 year old hands. But he wanted to try. I adjusted the settings (and cringed a little since I RARELY shoot above 2.8 unless necessary), but I wanted him to have a chance to get it in focus. And he did. This will probably be my profile picture for a long time. I love it so much and him. frisco_newborn_photographer_749
