This fun family moved to Alaska the day after our shoot! Talk about a climatic change from Houston :-)! Everyone was calm and relaxed and just went with the flow which made my job super easy. The kids were so sweet and they ALL have amazing blue eyes...I was jealous! It was so much fun to spend the morning with these guys.
Brooklyn's baptism day is coming up so we did some extra pictures of her at the end. She was full of good ideas for pictures for me :-) and I had fun following her lead.

Theme: Summer

week of July 18th
I wanted to get some good pool pictures for this theme, but since my little guy ended up getting stitches this weekend we are staying away from the pool for awhile. Instead I had fun looking back through some of my pictures of the summer thus far to highlight some of our favorite summer activities. I LOVE summer and I can't believe it has flown by so quickly!

Theme: Family

Week of July 11th
We just returned from our family vacation camping in the mountains of CA. Although I was nervous about how it would go with our three little ones, I ended up loving it! It was such great quality family phones, no computers, no TVs...just all of us together with no interruptions. It was absolutely beautiful and we had some amazing adventures together. I love my little fam! Here are a couple of my favorite shots from our first day.

I was so excited to get to photograph these adorable kids again! They were such troopers in the TX heat as we captured cute Chase as a big 2-year-old. We also got some shots with big sis Audrey that I absolutely LOVE! She is such a sweetheart.
I already posted this one of Audrey trying to get him to smile, but it's one of my favorites. 6
Big sister Beth's BFF is moving away so we got a few shots of them together...

Chase definitely let us know when he was done with the picture taking, and we called it a day.

Theme: Red, White and Blue

week of July 4th
When I saw these cute buntings hanging up while on a shoot, I couldn't wait to come back with my kiddos in their festive attire. Growing up in a very patriotic family I have great memories of the 4th of July (the food, the fireworks, the parades) and I get excited to look for cute red, white and blue outfits each year. I am so thankful to live in this country and for all the sacrifices that have been made on my behalf. I am proud to be the sister and granddaughter of great men who have fought to protect our rights. Happy 4th of July everyone!

week of June 27th
Once again I had big plans for this theme that never came to fruition :-). Such is life. This past week during a photo shoot at a location that I have been to many times I realized there was beautiful light if I shot from a new angle. So, what I ended up taking from the theme this week is not to forget to keep trying to new things. Even if you know you can get a great picture from one angle, still try it from another too and you may be pleasantly surprised at the results.
Plus, this gave me the chance to post this cute picture of big sister Audrey trying to help Chase smile. (I'll have the rest up soon karen!)
