Brenham, blue bell, friends........

I love it when I have to opportunity to spend time with my clients at "home" or as in this case at their Nana's house in Brenham! I had so much fun getting the chance to explore their property and see how they spend their time when they are out there! We originally planned this shoot way back in the Fall and decided to wait until Spring thinking that there would be the usual field of bluebonnets in April on their property in which to take pictures but we all know how that went this year! Needless to say we were not hurting for any spots to take pics - lots of wonderful photos & memories came out of that Saturday evening! Thank you sooo much to the J family for inviting me out to Brenham and as always to my friends the S family for being the kind, sweet & photogenic family that you always are :)

Out running the storm........

June has been a crazy month full of birthday parties, catching up with friends & family from out of town, and much more! Back to catching up on blogging some of these fun times! Rewind back to the first Sunday in June when it decided to rain for the first time in a long, long time on certain parts of the city. And not just rain, crazy hurricane-like winds that took out a lot of people's power including mine! So we waited until the last minute, exchanged lots of "should we try it?" text messages, and then decided we should take our chances! The rain literally skirted just north of downtown Richmond, leaving us with some cloud cover and slightly lower temps! You'll recognize several of these folks from last December when I worked with M's sides of the the family. Well now it was A's turn to bring along her mom, dad, sis, & future bro-in-law for some picks - oh and her future BABY GIRL because she is due to have another gorgeous baby this fall! We had a lot of fun hanging out together, watching for trains, hunting for rocks, & taking a few pics as well! Thanks to all of you for a great time! Congrats to M & E on your upcoming wedding & to M & A on the news of your baby girl coming this fall!

Turning 2 with choo choos........

A few weeks ago my lil buddy with the handsome red hair & beautiful blue eyes turned 2! He celebrated his 2nd birthday with a train-themed party, complete with a train that came to his house & the cutest decorations ever! His portrait shoot took place last week and he did AWESOME! This was the most smiles he's ever given me - I guess the 3rd time is a charm! Big thanks to Mr C's mom for all of her help & for throwing such a grand party for her sweet boy!

John Deere Green.......

I'm pretty sure my lil' buddy C should have been named John Deere because his LOVE for tractors is unmeasurable! This kiddo is turning 2 in a few days and I can't believe how fast he's grown! He & his family hold a special place in my heart because they were my 1st baby planners when I started my business 2 years ago and they've trusted me with their precious memories ever since!!! For his 2 year portraits we went out to borrow a tractor & the property of some of their good friends! Course once we brought out the big John Deere, the rest of our plans were out the window... ;) I love you K family - thank you for sticking with me & becoming my friends! Can't wait to party it up this weekend with you! Happy Birthday C!
