Leading up to these mini-shoots at Rice, the weather was making me nervous! I was so hoping to get them done before the rain came down and we finished just in the nick of time...it seriously started pouring as we drove out of there. These were some of my favorite mini-sessions so far, mostly because nearly everyone who came was someone I had worked with before and I was so excited to see them all again :-)!
Here are some of my favorites from the first 3 families of the morning...

Oh, cute little Braxton made us work for these shots :-)! 
I have had the pleasure of working with his family over the past 1 1/2 years beginning when his big sister was born and have loved watching her grow up. I was so excited to hear they would be adding another cutie to their family and had so much fun on the maternity shoot. Charlie Sue was one of my most memorable newborns :-), and I was sure we would get a super sleepy baby this time around, but Braxton was much too interested in what was going on to succumb to much sleep. Although these weren't the poses we were going for initially, we adapted and still managed to capture all his cuteness. These two little smarties are going to be playing together in no time!

I met cute Kai last year for his first birthday and I can't believe an entire year has already passed by! He was a little shy at first and was definitely happiest with mom by his side, but he did warm up as the shoot went on. Once again he was a perfect little model and we got so many cute shots of this sweetheart. Happy 2nd Birthday Kai!

I was so excited to meet these cute boys, because they have two of my favorite boy names EVER...Preston and Elliot :-). Mom wanted to do some lifestyle type shots as well as portraits of baby and Elliot could not have been more cooperative. He was calm and awake for the family action, and then passed out as soon as mom fed him and slept right through the rest of the shoot. Preston, on the other hand was definitely more interested in playing than posing with baby brother :-), but I know before long they will be running around their backyard together. Congrats!
